Aerosols can play a role in the cloud formation process through the heterogeneous nucleation mechanism, and in turn, once formed, cirrus clouds can impact the ambient aerosol through scavenging and other collection mechanisms. University of Missouri aerosol sampling facilities were employed on aircraft for in situ collection and characterization of the particulates near cirrus cloud level. Tandem differential mobility analyzer and impactor techniques were used to measure aerosol size distribution, hydration capability, and particle composition information. Evidence of aerosol layering was observed near the tropospause, and there was a tendency toward depletion of the ambient aerosol at both ends of ...

In this paper, we present a detailed theoretical description for the coherent electronimpact excitation, the subsequent time evolution, and the cascading decay process of the singlettriplet mixed 1s4f state of helium. The excitation amplitude and phase of each sublevel of this state are related to measurable coincidence intensities and polarizations of the emitted photons. It is found that the intensity and polarization of the emitted photons are time modulated due to the singlet and triplet mixing in the 1s4f state.

We have made several different types of measurements of the threephoton ionization of Li produced by 3ps laser pulses and describe the results using a Floquet picture. Over the photon frequency range 15 000 to 15 800 cm^{1}, Li represents a strongly coupled threestate system with the 2s ground state coupled to the 2p and 3d states by one and two photons, respectively. Energy analysis of the photoelectrons allows the measurement of the intensity dependent shift of the 2s Floquet state during the laser pulse. The shift shows a strong frequency dependence that is not predicted by firstorder perturbation ...

Two localized picture methods of analyzing the magnetic circular dichroism in xray absorption will be applied to experimental results: the branching ratio (BR) and sum rule (SR) approaches. A derivation of the BR formulas and detailed comparison to the SR expressions will be made, including error estimations. The BR approach will be seen to be a limiting case form of the SR spinmoment expression and provide a simple picture of the underlying physics in magnetic xray circular dichroism absorption in 3d magnetic materials.

Coulomb Gap At Finite Temperatures, Masoud Sarvestani, Michael Schreiber, Thomas Vojta

The Coulomb glass, a model of interacting localized electrons in a random potential, exhibits a soft gap, the Coulomb gap, in the singleparticle density of states (DOS) g(ε,T) close to the chemical potential µ. In this paper we investigate the Coulomb gap at finite temperatures T by means of a Monte Carlo method. We find that the Coulomb gap fills with increasing temperature. In contrast to previous results the temperature dependence is, however, much stronger than g(µ,T)~T^{D1} as predicted analytically. It can be described by power laws with the exponents 1.75 ± 0.1 ...

Using the principle of detailed balance, we derive a new selfconsistency requirement, termed the kinetic product rule, relating the evaporation coefficients and equilibrium cluster distribution for a binary system. We use this result to demonstrate and resolve an inconsistency for an idealized Kelvin model of nucleation in a simple binary mixture. We next examine several common forms for the equilibrium distribution of binary clusters based on the capillarity approximation and ideal vapor behavior. We point out fundamental deficiencies for each expression. We also show that each distribution yields evaporation coefficients that formally satisfy the new kinetic product rule but are ...

We numerically solve the complete set of coupled differential equations describing transient binary nucleation kinetics for vaportoliquid phase transitions. We investigate binary systems displaying both positive and negative deviations from ideality in the liquid phase and obtain numerical solutions over a wide range of relative rates of monomer impingement. We emphasize systems and conditions that either have been or can be investigated experimentally. In almost every case, we find behavior consistent with Stauffer's idea that the major particle flux passes through the saddle point with an orientation angle that depends on the rates of monomer impingement. When this is ...

We investigate the influence of spatial correlations between the values of the random field on the critical behavior of randomfield lattice models and derive a generalized version of the SchwartzSoffer inequality for the averages of the susceptibility and its disconnected part. At the critical point this leads to a modification of the SchwartzSoffer exponent inequality for the critical exponents η and η^{ }describing the divergences of the susceptibility and its disconnected part, respectively. It now reads η^{} ≤ 2η2y where 2y describes the divergence of the randomfield correlation function in Fourier space. As an example we exactly calculate the susceptibility and ...

Issues of selfconsistency are reviewed for several unary equilibrium size distributions based on the capillarity approximation. Some apparent difficulties of interpretation are resolved. In terms of the kinetic approach to nucleation theory, the influence of selfconsistency on the nucleation rate is shown to arise entirely from differences in the dimer evaporation rates for nearly all versions of classical theory. The nucleation rate behavior of the Kelvin model is explored. In this model, the Kelvin equation is used to prescribe all cluster evaporation rates. Nucleation rates predicted by the Kelvin model are quantitatively similar to those of the selfconsistent classical (SCC ...

We have measured and calculated doubly differential single ionization cross sections as a function of the scattering angle and the projectile energy loss for 50 to 150 keV protonhelium collisions. These cross sections show unexpected structures as a function of both the energy loss and the scattering angle, which are interpreted as due to the postcollision interaction. Although the effects of postcollision interactions have previously been observed in electron spectra, this is the first observation of such effects for the scattered protons.
ElectricField Enhancement Of Dielectronic Recombination From A Continuum Of Finite Bandwidth, J. Greg Story, Bernard J. Lyons, Thomas F. Gallagher
ElectricField Enhancement Of Dielectronic Recombination From A Continuum Of Finite Bandwidth, J. Greg Story, Bernard J. Lyons, Thomas F. Gallagher

A small electric field is shown to increase the dielectronic recombination, via autoionizing Rydberg states, of an electron from a continuum of finite bandwidth. The continuum of finite bandwidth is a broad autoionizing state which is part of a series converging to a higher limit, and the field enhancement of the rate occurs because the field converts the nl Rydberg states to nk Stark states, increasing the number of contributing recombination paths. The experimental results are in excellent agreement with the predictions of an isolated resonance approximation treatment and show clearly both the positive effect of Stark mixing and the ...

We have measured projectileenergyloss spectra for 50, 100, and 150keV p+He collisions. From the data we obtained differential doubleexcitation cross sections as a function of projectile scattering angle. At 150 keV a pronounced peak structure was observed at about 0.7 mrad for double excitation to the (2p^{2}) ^{1}D and (2s2p) ^{1}P states. Our data provide indications for the dominance of a firstorder mechanism involving the electronelectron interaction in double excitation for 150 keV at small scattering angles. At lower projectile energies and larger scattering angles a secondorder mechanism appears to be of the same order ...

We have developed a new kind of recoil ion momentum spectroscopy technique, using a precooled supersonic gas jet target, to determine state selective, scattering angle dependent cross sections for swift ionatom collisions ( 0. 25 , ..., , 1 MeV He^{2+} on He), by measuring the transverse and longitudinal momentum of the recoil ion. A longitudinal momentum resolution of ± 0.13 a. u. was achieved, about a factor of 30 better than ever obtained before, which enables a clear separation of K and L shell capture. In the transverse direction a resolution corresponding to a projectile scattering angle uncertainty of Δ ϑ P ...

The projectile energy loss for 7.525MeV C^{6+,5+} and F^{6+} ions was measured for single collisions with He, Ne, Ar, and Kr as a function of the recoilion charge state and the projectile scattering. This energy loss was measured for collisions in which the projectile captured an electron and for those involving just direct ionization. We investigated and found a large average energy transfer (100250 eV/electron) to the continuum electrons. A strong increase of the scattering angle with recoilion charge state was observed for both capture and direct ionization. The results imply that, for smaller impact ...
