    Time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is applied for calculation of the excitation energies of the dissociating H[sub 2] molecule. The standard TDDFT method of adiabatic local density approximation (ALDA) totally fails to reproduce the potential curve for the lowest excited singlet...

    The observation of intense terahertz luminescence under the interband photoexcitation of n-GaAs and p-Ge semiconductors at low temperatures is reported. The terahertz photoluminescence is caused by radiative transitions, which accompany the capture of nonequilibrium carriers by impurity centers....

    We experimentally demonstrate optical bistability in Er3+-Yb3+ phosphate glass microspheres at 295 K. Bistability is associated with both Er3+ fluorescence and lasing behavior, and chromatic switching. The chromatic switching results from an intrinsic mechanism exploiting the thermal coupling of...
