The article describes a problem in analytical and bioanalytical chemistry in which the question of whether beryllium is divalent or trivalent is considered. The problem emanates from the possibility that the atomic weight of beryllium occupied a non-existent gap between carbon and nitrogen which is said to be an anathema to the integrity of Mendeleyev's periodic law. A sample preparation of beryllium chloride is presented.

    The high resolution spectrum of VCl has been observed in emission in the 3000-9400 cm-1 region using a Fourier transform spectrometer. The bands were excited in a high temperature carbon tube furnace from the reaction of vanadium metal vapor and a trace of BCl[sub 3] and the spectra were...

    InAs/In0.53Ga0.23Al0.24As quantum dashes (QDashes) have been investigated in a temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) experiment. It has been observed that the increase of the QDash size shifts the emission peak to the longer wavelength and leads to a slower thermal quenching of PL. This...

    The experimental total energy distribution (TED) of the field emitted electrons from a single pod of a ZnO tetrapod has been obtained, exhibiting a two-peak feature. The energy difference between the two peaks in the TED is found to be nearly equal to the band gap of the bulk ZnO. The results...

    Specifics of the exchange interaction in mixed-valence Cr2+�Cr3+3d-ion pairs in KZnF3 crystals are studied. It is shown that the double-exchange interaction can be significantly reduced by the low-symmetry crystal field created by a compensator. The features of the exchange interaction and...

    Asymmetric quantum well potentials are expected to produce a conduction band spin-splitting which contributes to Dyakonov–Perel (Sov. Phys. Solid State 13:3023, ) spin relaxation. Much experimental work has focused on the effect of an electric field on spin dynamics (Karimov et al., in...

    We have made the first measurements of the minority-carrier diffusion lengths L∥ and L⊥ respectively in both n- and p- type GaP/GaAsxP1-x <100> strained-layer superlattices (SLS's) in directions parallel and perpendicular to the interfaces. Using room-temperature optical techniques, we...

    Site-specific configurations of Fe 3d electrons in a spinel ferrite were investigated by electron energy loss spectroscopy under electron channeling conditions. Site-specific spectra were extracted by applying a multivariate curve resolution (MCR) technique to the data set. An electronic...

    Room-temperature ferromagnetism was observed in undoped and Fe2+(3+)-doped CeO2 nanocrystals. In Fe-doped samples the enhancement of ferromagnetic ordering occurs by changing the valence state of Fe ions, whereas Raman spectra demonstrated strong electron-molecular vibrational coupling and...

    We use time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy and photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy to measure the valence band parameters of hexagonal wurtzite InP nanowires. The A exciton emission and excitation energy is observed at 1.504 eV as expected. Excitation spectra show that the B and C...
