    In this article we wish to report on the commissioning of the SU5 undulator-based beamline, whose primary scientific goal deals with high-resolution spectroscopy and photon-induced dynamics in the vacuum ultraviolet range on dilute species. In order to achieve such a scientific program, we have...

    The transition frequencies of low-J excitation lines in the B1Σu+– X1Σg+,(ν′,0) Lyman bands have been measured for ν′ = 2–18 and in the C1Πu–X1Σg+,(ν′,0) Werner bands for ν′ = 0–4, using a narrow-band tunable extreme UV laser source...

    Focusing 800-nm pulses of 10–20 fs and ≤0.4 mJ into atmospheric-pressure argon gives rise to a supercontinuum extending down to 250 nm. We show that spectral cuts from this radiation can be shortened by a simple prism compressor down to 30 fs even near the UV cut-off. The resulting...

    The absorption spectra of Bjorkman lignin, lignin sulfate, lignosulfonates, and humic substances in neutral and alkaline media are considered. It was found that the difference spectra of lignins (an alkaline solution with reference to a neutral solution) exhibited several intense bands, whereas...

    The photoluminescence and photoexcitation spectra as well as the luminescence decay kinetics of Er3+ ions in the visible ultraviolet and vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) regions have been studied by the method of low-temperature, time-resolved VUV-spectroscopy on excitation by synchrotron radiation. In...

    Sesquiterpenes, one of the most important classes of biogenic volatile organic compounds, are potentially significant precursors to secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) in nature. The electronic structure of sesquiterpenes and their reactivity in the ozonolysis reaction were investigated by density...
