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 have experimentally studied the temperature range and conditions of the stable operation of rare-earth metal (REM) vapor lasers. Gas-discharge tubes made of alumina (Al2O3-GDTs) were used in the experiments. The lasing appears at the temperature when the saturated-vapor pressure of REMs...

    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...

    In this article, novel ZnO nanotetrapods with tubular legs was successfully synthesized using mixed powder of Zn, ZnO, and carbon as source. The growth process was analyzed at large, and a two-step growth model, viz. initial deficient-oxidation and latter second-volatilization, was proposed to...
