Gold micropatterns have been generated by the laser photolysis of dimethylgold (III) acetylacetonate, Me2Au(acac), in the vapor phase. Linewidths as fine as 2 μm were readily obtained utilizing a simple optical projection system comprised of a 4× projection lens, a lithographic photomask, and the UV output from an excimer laser. The single-step, dry process for selectively producing metal patterns is highlighted.

    We have developed a new technique for measuring the etch rate of polymer films under ablative photodecomposition condition obtained by absorption of the far-UV radiation of the excimer laser. The technique is based on the use of a quartz crystal microbalance interfaced with a microcomputer. It...

    In the presence of β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), the photodegradation behavior of bisphenol F has been studied under UV irradiation (λmax = 254 nm) in this work. The results show that the photodegradation rate of bisphenol F (BPF) in aqueous solution with β-CD was clearly faster than that...

    In this paper we show that bromide scavenges the ·OH radicals formed upon photolysis of nitrate, before they leave the solvent cage. Bromide can thus inhibit the in-cage recombination between ·OH and ·NO2. The consequence is an increased generation of ·NO2 and nitrite and of...
