    New possibilities of ultrathin film thickness and density determination are demonstrated by means of x-ray method in the form of x-ray standing wave technique (XSW) and total external fluorescence study (NTEF). Several samples with ultrathin Fe films protected by carbon layers and with bare Fe...

    A technique using pulsed laser desorption is described as a means of volatilizing nonvolatile and thermally labile molecules into the gas phase for entrainment in supersonic jet expansions. By carefully controlling the laser desorption power and by using a glycerol matrix to provide a thin even...
