Describes the development of a dual rod laser vaporization (LAVA) source coupled to a fast flow reactor to study bimetallic clusters and their reactions. Design and operation of the LAVA source; Most critical parameters for cluster production; No effect of rod placement on the cluster distribution.

    Monte Carlo simulations are performed to determine the free energies of clusters containing between i=20 and i=100 atoms interacting via the Lennard-Jones potential at dimensionless temperatures T* between 0.25 and 0.875. A cluster is defined by the condition that all atoms are within a...

    Optical micromaser action is considered in atomic clusters that can be involved in separable and entangled initial correlations. An equation describing the evolution of the Glauber quasi-probability for a light field is constructed in the Fokker-Planck approximation. The statistics of radiation...

    We report the trace vapor detection of the molecule 1,4-dinitrobenzene, a model analyte for the explosive substance 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, via fluoresence quenching of a first generation conjugated dendrimer containing a 2,2′-bis[9,9-di-n-hexylfluorene] core. We show that much greater...

    Time-dependent ion charge state measurements for Pb and Bi cathodic arc plasmas revealed unexpected differences: the mean Bi ion charge state dropped much stronger and with a longer time constant. It is shown that the differences in thermal conductivity and vapor pressure led to much higher...
