    We have observed fifth-order optical response from liquid CS2 by six-wave mixing with five different short pulses and investigated the inhomogeneity in the spectral broadening of the low-frequency intermolecular vibrational modes. There are a couple of distinct differences in the time profile of...

The nature of the heterogeneities in glasses and glass-forming liquids is considered, and the influence...

    This paper is preliminary study to model flow within a multiphase mixer. This was achieved by primarily modeling a single liquid, which was validated by a grid independence and experimental PIV tests. A VOF model was simulated using the same agitator and vessel. Two modes of motion were found...
