    1988-08-01

    The Gulf of Suez is an intracratonic rift basin which originated in the early Miocene on the once-continuous Arabo-African plate. The Precambrian crystalline basement is overlain by a platform cover of Early Cambrian to Eocene age. There is no evidence of tectonic precursors to the Miocene breakup. Marine transgressions, for example during the Carboniferous and Cretaceous, followed wide embayments caused by long-wavelength oscillations trending northwest-southeast on the North African craton. This article discusses the geologic history of the Gulf.

    2000-01-01

    One of the most important waterways in the world, the Suez Canal runs north to south across the Isthmus of Suez in northeastern Egypt. This image of the canal covers an area 36 kilometers (22 miles) wide and 60 kilometers (47 miles) long in three bands of the reflected visible and infrared wavelength region. It shows the northern part of the canal, with the Mediterranean Sea just visible in the upper right corner. The Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Gulf of Suez, an arm of the Red Sea. The artificial canal provides an important shortcut for ships operating between both European and American ports and ports located in southern Asia, eastern Africa, and Oceania. With a length of about 195 kilometers (121 miles) and a minimum channel width of 60 meters (197 feet), the Suez Canal is able to accommodate ships as large as 150,000 tons fully loaded. Because no locks interrupt traffic on this sea level waterway, the transit time only averages about 15 hours. ASTER acquired this scene on May 19, 2000.

    Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) is one of five Earth-observing instruments launched December 18, 1999, on NASA's Terra satellite. The instrument was built by Japan's Ministry of International Trade and Industry. A joint U.S./Japan science team is responsible for validation and calibration of the instrument and the data products. Dr. Anne Kahle at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, is the U.S. science team leader; Moshe Pniel of JPL is the project manager. ASTER is the only high-resolution imaging sensor on Terra. The primary goal of the ASTER mission is to obtain high-resolution image data in 14 channels over the entire land surface, as well as black and white stereo images. With revisit time of between 4 and 16 days, ASTER will provide the capability for repeat coverage of changing areas on Earth's surface.

    The broad spectral coverage and high spectral resolution of ASTER will provide scientists in numerous disciplines with critical information for surface mapping and monitoring dynamic conditions and temporal change. Examples of applications include monitoring glacial advances and retreats, potentially active volcanoes, thermal pollution, and coral reef degradation; identifying crop stress; determining cloud morphology and physical properties; evaluating wetlands; mapping surface temperature of soils and geology; and measuring surface heat balance.

    Egypt's re-emergence as an oil exporting country in the past several years was brought about by the drilling of fewer than 100 exploration wells in a small area of the Gulf of Suez. Now that Israel and Egypt are at peace and Egypt again controls this area, prospects for large, new discoveries in previously untested areas are excellent.

    1988-01-01

    A three-dimensional study of the structure of the Suez Rift has been carried out using field and subsurface data in an attempt to determine the role of transverse faults and the longitudinal evolution of the rift. As in most intracontinental rifts, the structure of the Gulf of Suez area is governed by normal faults and tilted blocks, whose crests constitute the main target of exploratory wells. The fault pattern consists of two major sets of trends: (1) longitudinal faults parallel with the rift axis and created in an extensional regime, trending east-northeast-west-southwest, and (2) transverse faults with north-south to north-northeast-south-southwest dominant trend. The transverse faults are inherited passive discontinuities, whereas most of the longitudinal faults were created during the Neogene in a purely extensional regime. Both sets were simultaneously active, producing a zigzag pattern and rhombic-shaped blocks. The transverse faults can show horizontal strike-slip components and act as relays between major normal faults.

    Destructive tsunamis in the eastern Mediterranean and Red seas, induced by earthquakes and/or volcanic activity, pose potential hazards to docked seaport shipping and fixed harbor infrastructure as well as to in-transit international shipping within the Suez Canal. Potential vulnerabilities of the Suez Canal to possible tsunami impacts are reviewed by reference to geological, historical, archaeoseismological, and anecdotal data. Tsunami catalogues and databases compiled by earlier researchers are perused to estimate potential return periods for tsunami events that could affect directly the Suez Canal and its closely associated operational infrastructures. Analysis of these various records indicates a centurial return period, or multiples thereof, for long-wave repetition that could generally affect the Nile Delta. It is estimated that tsunami waves 2 m high would have a breaking length about 5 km down Canal whereas a 10 m wave break would occur about 1 km into the Canal. Should a tsunami strike the eastern flanks of the Nile Delta, it would damage Egypt's maritime infrastructure and multi-national commercial vessels and military ships then using the Canal.

    Introduction: The 5th millennium development goal aims at reducing maternal mortality by 75% by the year 2015. According to the World Health Organization, there was an estimated 358,000 maternal deaths globally in 2008. Developing countries accounted for 99% of these deaths of which three-fifths occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa. In primary health care (PHC), quality of antenatal care is fundamental and critically affects service continuity. Nevertheless, medical research ignores the issue and it is lacking scientific inquiry, particularly in Egypt. Aim of the Study: The aim of the following study is to assess the quality of antenatal care in urban Suez Governorate, Egypt. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional primary health care center (PHCC) based study conducted at five PHCC in urban Suez, Egypt. The total sample size collected from clients, physicians and medical records. Parameters assessed auditing of medical records, assessing provider and pregnant women satisfaction. Results: Nearly 97% of respondents were satisfied about the quality of antenatal care, while provider's satisfaction was 61% and for file, auditing was 76.5 ± 5.6. Conclusion: The present study shows that client satisfaction, physicians’ satisfaction and auditing of medical record represent an idea about opportunities for improvement. PMID:25374861

    The variation of sea level at 11 stations distributed along the Suez Canal was studied during the period from 1980 to 1986. The ranges of variation in daily mean sea level at Port Said and Port Tawfik are about 60 and 120 cm, respectively. The minimum range of daily variation is at Kantara (47 cm). The fluctuations of the monthly mean sea level between the two ends of the Suez Canal vary from one season to another. From July to December, the sea level at Port Said is higher than that at Port Tawfik, with the maximum difference (10·5 cm) in September. During the rest of the year, the mean sea level at Port Tawfik is higher than that at Port Said, with the maximum difference (31·5 cm) in March. The long-term variations of the annual mean sea level at both Port Said and Port Tawfik for the period from 1923 to 1986 showed a positive trend. The sea level at Port Said increased by about 27·8 cm century -1while it increased by only 9·1 cm century -1at Port Tawfik. This indicates that the difference between sea level at Port Said and Port Tawfik has decreased with time.

    In this paper a study for risk assessment of the impact of transporting radioactive materials, during the period 1986-1992, through the Suez Canal of Egypt is given. The code RADTRAN-IV was used for this study. The results of the code, for a normal case, show that the transportation of low activity materials such as uranium (U 3O 8) represent the main items that contribute significantly to the collective dose within the Suez Canal area (Port-Said, Ismailia and Suez). The values of the annual collective dose due to transportation of all radionuclide materials was found to be at a maximum in Suez town and is equal to 5.04 × 10 -8 Man-Sv for the whole populations. If we only consider the workder at the harbour (estimated to be 50 persons), the value of the annual collective dose is about 3.33 × 10 -4 Man-Sv. These values are less than the exemption value of 1 Man-Sv recommended by the IAEA. For the accident case, the following pathways are considered by the code: ground-shine, direct inhalation, inhalation of resuspended material and cloud-shine. The total values of the estimated risks for each radionuclide material are presented in table form and, in addition, health effects (genetic effects, GE, and latent cancer fatality), LCF) are discussed. The calculated values of the radiological risks are very low for the three towns, showing that no radiation-induced early deaths are to be expected.

  8. The Suez Canal as a habitat and pathway for marine algae and seagrasses

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Aleem, A. A.

    The Suez Canal supports a diversified benthic algal flora; 133 species of benthic algae are now known from the Canal, as compared with only 24 in 1924. The vertical and horizontal distribution of algae is considered in relation to hydrographic factors. The algae display zonation and 3-4 algal belts are distinguished on the Canal banks on buoys and pier supports. Associated fauna include Balanus amphitrite and Brachidontes variabilis, together with various hydroids, sponges, ascidians, asteroids, ophiuroids and crustaceans. Merceriella enigmatica thrives well in brackish water habitats. The algal flora in the Bitter Lakes resembles that in the Red Sea. The number of Red Sea species decreases from Suez to Port Said in the littoral zone. On the other hand, bottom algae predominantly belong to Red Sea flora. Thirty of the species of algae found belong to the Indo-Pacific flora; half of these are new records to the Canal. Several of these Indo-Pacific algae have recently become established in the Eastern Mediterranean, whereas only two of the Mediterranean macro-algal flora (viz.

    2006-12-01

    The Tertiary Gulf of Suez rift system is one of the best-studied continental rift systems and has inspired many fundamental geodynamic models for continental rifting. However, our limited knowledge of how extensional strain is spatially and temporally distributed has made it difficult to adequately evaluate models for the dynamic evolution of this rift. A critical aspect of constraining the evolution of rifting and rift segmentation in the Gulf of Suez involves acquiring reliable geochronological constraints on extensional faulting. This study has commenced a systematic investigation of the timing and spatial distribution of rifting, lateral rift segmentation, and rift localization within the Gulf of Suez, Egypt, employing apatite and zircon (U-Th)/He thermochronometry. (U-Th)/He thermochronometric analysis of sample transects from exhumed fault blocks within the rift integrated with structural data will allow us to directly determine the timing, distribution, and magnitude of extension. The onset of major rifting (~24-19 Ma) in the Gulf of Suez was marked by the development of crustal domino-style tilt blocks and syn-rift deposition of the late Oligocene non-marine Abu Zenima Fm and non-marine to restricted marine Nukhul Fm. Development of the Gulf of Aqaba-Dead Sea transform cut off the rift from the Red Sea rift at an early extensional stage. Apatite (AHe) and zircon (ZHe) (U- Th)/He data were collected from basement and pre-rift sedimentary sample transects from the central and southern Sinai Peninsula portion and the Gebel El Zeit area in the southern Gulf of Suez as well as from basement samples from selected drill cores off Gebel El Zeit. Preliminary data exhibit partially reset ages trending as old as ~70 Ma (AHe) and ~450 Ma (ZHe) from shallower structural levels (Proterozoic basement and Phanerozoic cover sequence). Structurally deeper samples yield abundant AHe ages of ~22-24 Ma, indicative of rapid cooling and exhumation during the early Miocene. More basin-ward AHe samples are as young as ~17 Ma, recording continued early to middle Miocene extension in the Gulf of Suez. Detailed thermochronometric dating in progress should yield a more complete picture of the temporal and spatial distribution of extensional faulting in the Gulf of Suez.

    The application of sequential extraction technique was used to determine the chemical association of heavy metals in five different chemical phases (exchangeable F1, bound to carbonate F2, bound to Fe-Mn oxides F3, bound to organic matter F4 and residual F5) for sediment samples collected from the Suez Canal. From the obtained data, it can be seen that the surplus of metal contaminants introduced into the sediment from sources usually exists in relatively unstable chemical forms. A high proportion of the studied metals remained in the residual fraction. Most of remaining portion of metals was bound to ferromanganese oxides fraction. The low concentrations of metals in the exchangeable fraction indicated that the sediments of Suez Canal were relatively unpolluted.

    1987-05-01

    Micropaleontologic and sedimentologic studies of Miocene outcrop and borehole sections from the flanks and axial trough of the Suez rift have documented five major tectono-stratigraphic events, or hiatuses, during the Neogene. The first Neogene hiatus spans the late(.) Oligocene to earliest Miocene and separates Miocene from pre-Miocene strata throughout the Gulf of Suez. This erosional event resulted from both low global sea levels in the Oligocene and the initiation of Suez rifting. A second hiatus, from 21 to 19(.) Ma, separates the poorly dated shallow marine Nukhul formation from overlying middle Burdigalian and younger (NN3-NN5) upper bathyal shales of the Rudeis Formation. This hiatus resulted from both low early Burdigalian sea levels and increased rift-related tectonism. A third major event occurs within the Rudeis around 16 Ma (N7, NN4). This mid-Clysmic event of Garfunkel and Bartove is characterized by accelerated uplift of the rift margins and subsidence of the axial trough. Local unconformities are seen over paleohighs, while coarse clastics are deposited in more basinal areas in submarine fans and turbidites. A fourth hiatus at 14 to 13 Ma (N10-N11) separates the middle Miocene (N9) Kareem Formation from the overlying Belayim Formation evaporites. This hiatus may correlate with the initiation of rifting along the Dead Sea-Aqaba system. The fifth Neogene event is a tectonic pulse in the early (.) Pliocene that further rotated many tilted fault blocks. This event is roughly synchronous with the initiation of Red Sea sea-floor spreading and accelerated sinistral motion along the Dead Sea transform at approx. 5 Ma.

    Introduction. Blood stream infection (BSI) is a common problem of newborn in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Monitoring neonatal infections is increasingly regarded as an important contributor to safe and high-quality healthcare. It results in high mortality rate and serious complications. So, our aim was to determine the incidence and the pattern of BSIs in the NICU of Suez Canal University Hospital, Egypt, and to determine its impact on hospitalization, mortality, and morbidity. Methods. This study was a prospective one in which all neonates admitted to the NICUs in Suez Canal University hospital between January, 2013 and June 2013 were enrolled. Blood stream infections were monitored prospectively. The health care associated infection rate, mortality rate, causative organism, and risk factors were studied. Results. A total of 317 neonates were admitted to the NICU with a mortality rate of 36.0%. During this study period, 115/317 (36.3%) developed clinical signs of sepsis and were confirmed as BSIs by blood culture in only 90 neonates with 97 isolates. The total mean length of stay was significantly longer among infected than noninfected neonates (34.5 ± 18.3 and 10.8 ± 9.9 days, resp., P value < 0.001). The overall mortality rates among infected and noninfected neonates were 38.9% and 34.8%, respectively, with a significant difference. Klebsiella spp. were the most common pathogen (27.8%) followed by Pseudomonas (21.6%) and Staphylococcus aureus (15.4%). Conclusion. The rate of BSIs in NICU at Suez Canal University Hospital was relatively high with high mortality rate (36.0%). PMID:25389439

    Some of the Gulf of Suez oil fields (El-Morgan, July, and Shoab Ali) have been waterflooded with gulf seawater. Compatibility tests have indicated probable deposition of scale in surface and subsurface production equipment. This paper outlines the physical and theoretical prediction for downhole scale deposition in Gulf of Suez oil wells. It also describes field experience with CaSO/sub 4/ scale removal from the wells and their formations in view of field results of the implemented programs. Scale inhibition programs carried out to control downhole scale deposition by using the formation squeeze technique, along with the field results obtained from the squeezetreated wells, are described. A new improvement in the squeeze treatment technique has been introduced as highmolecular-weight polyacrylamide polymer solutions were incorporated to stage the scale inhibitor squeeze batch to prolong the treatment lifetime. Field results are presented, along with conclusions and recommendations that can be applied to similar problems, especially when wells of highly productive sandstone formations are to be inhibited.

    In this study, marine surface sediments are collected from nine locations along the Suez Canal in order to investigate the relationship between the morphology of sands in the studied beaches and pollution by oil. Basically, the studied samples were analyzed by three techniques: grains-size analysis, microscopic examination, and gas chromatographic (GC) analysis. This study concluded that medium sand is the major class represented in the studied marine sediments. Pollution in these sand grains increases in the irregular grains more so than in the more rounded grains. Also, deep surface points, pitting, and fissures are considered to be good sites to precipitate oil contamination. Also, the presence of iron oxides may be taken as evidence for tanker ballast washings. The heavy fraction (zircon) shows more contamination than the light fraction (quartz) in these samples. Finally, GC profiles have shown two types of samples: one typical of weathered or highly weathered crude oil patterns and the other for samples with very highly weathered profiles. The relationship obtained between morphology studies and both oil content and GC chromatogram profiles indicates that all of the studied locations are suffering from pollution of oil that is spilled while shipping petroleum through the Suez Canal.

    This paper describes work carried out under the IAEA Project EGY/07/002 to study the dispersion of radioactive material in the Suez Canal. This effort is linked with the increased public concern about radiation safety through this important trade route. To follow the fate of radioactive wastes along this waterway, we had to solve the hydrodynamics of the water, governed mainly by tides, atmospheric forcing and the drift currents produced by horizontal salinity gradients and by differences in mean sea level (MSL) at the two entrances of the Canal. The hydrodynamics has been studied using both 1-D and 2-D modelling approaches, and a reasonable calibration has been possible from the data set prepared with the collaboration of the Suez Canal Authority. Dispersion of conservative pollutants has been preliminarily studied by using a 1-D-Gaussian approach. Thus, we are computing the path of the plumes and the time evolution of concentrations for different scenarios of discharges and under different seasonal conditions. The transit times can vary enormously during the year, ranging from a few days to several months, depending on the differences in MSL at the two entrances of the Canal.

    Four groups of rocks, having more than 0.5% of organic carbon are defined within the subsurface section of Rahmi area, Gulf of Suez. The deduced types of indigenous kerogen are: algal-amorphous, inertinite-woody, and herbaceous. The algal-amorphous kerogen of Rudeis/Nukhul Formations (Lower Miocene), Eocene and pre-Eocene rocks is recognized as being oil prone, that is having high capacity for generating oil. The application of hydrocarbon liquid window concept shows that the LOM values fall within the range from 8.6 to 10.8, and the thermal alteration index for the different units is not extended into oil generation window, where it ranges from immature (Kareem Formation-Lower Miocene), to moderately mature (Paleocene), to the beginning of the thermal phase of oil generation (Senonian). The vitrinite reflectance values indicate a low level of thermal maturity. The formational temperatures increase towards the depocentral part of the basin and eastwards to the present Gulf of Suez. The thermal maturity index increases towards ancient stratigraphic units. The study of organic richness, quality and maturity revealed that, where the Nukhul, Eocene and Senonian rocks are buried deeper in the study area, would have been excellent source rocks for oil.

    Bakarat, M.A.K.; Kholief, M.M.

    1988-08-01

    Miocene carbonate rocks in six surface sections on the eastern side of the Gulf of Suez were carefully studied in the field, petrographically examined, and mineralogically analyzed using SEM and x-ray microanalysis for all elements. In general, reservoir quality of the Miocene carbonates was poor because of original composition and texture. Three different types of porosity were distinguished in the studied Miocene carbonates: primary (intergranular and moldic), secondary (leached), and fracture. Much of the porosity in the Miocene reservoirs is secondary; however, sometimes this secondary porosity may be reduced by compaction and/or precipitation of evaporites in fractures and pores. The authors conclude that the primary porosity of the carbonate rocks in the reef complex was eliminated by lithification and cementation; only secondary porosity remained. This secondary porosity developed in all environments (supratidal, intertidal, and subtidal), but the best porosity developed in the subtidal facies. This high porosity occurs because the dolomites in the subtidal facies are coarser and free from anhydrite cement, whereas in supratidal and intertidal facies the dolomites are finer and their porosity is plugged by secondary anhydrite cement.

    The shallow-water siliciclastics and carbonates of the Miocene sediments in the Cairo-Suez District, Egypt represent an epiric ramp. The facies are characterized by stacked high-frequency cycles with restricted ramp to shoal margin sequences. Based on an extensive micro- and biofacies documentation, six lithofacies associations were defined and their respective depositional environments were interpreted. A sequence-stratigraphic analysis was carried out by integrating lithostratigraphic marker beds, facies relationships, stratigraphic cycles, and biostratigraphy. The investigated sections were subdivided into three third-order sequences, named S1, S2 and S3. S1, is interpreted to correspond to the Late Burdigalian stage (18-16.38 My), S2 corresponds to the Late Burdigalian-Early Langhian stage (16.38-14.78 My), and S3 represents the Late Langhain-Early Serravallian stage (14.78-13.66 My). Each of the three sequences was further subdivided into fourth order cycle sets and fifth-order cycles.

    To date, more than 40 oil fields with an estimated 25billion bbl of oil in place have been discovered in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt. These oil accumulations are present both in the pre-graben and graben-fill cycles which are separated by Oligocene tectonic phase, hitherto considered to be responsible for differentiation and formation of oil traps. In the present study, the structural development of many oil traps is related to intra-Rudeis tectonic phase of late early Miocene age. Presence of an a

    Lake Timsah receives high salinity water from the Suez Canal, mainly from the south, and freshwater from a Nile canal and other sources, producing a salinity stratification with surface salinities of 20-40‰ and over 40‰ in deeper water. Water temperature at a depth of 50-70 cm fell to below 20 °C in winter and rose to above 30 °C in summer; oxygen concentration at the same depth ranged between 6-10 mg l -1 and the pH was 8·1-8·3, and at mid-day this water was supersaturated with oxygen through 6-8 months of the year. The main chemical nutrients reached their highest levels in winter (December-February) and their lowest levels in summer (May-August), silicate varying between 1-7 ? M, phosphate between 0·1 and 0·8 ? M and nitrate between 4-10 ? M; nitrite varied in a more complex manner, usually between 0·25 and 0·4 ? M. The atomic ratio of N/P was generally well above the Redfield ratio level, except for a few months in midwinter. These nutrient concentrations are high in comparison with those of unpolluted seas of the region, but are typical of the more eutrophic coastal waters in most parts of the world.

    This paper shows an evaluation of the seismic activity in the entrance of the Gulf of Suez using the data recorded by Hurghada Seismological Network (HSN), in the period between August 1994 and December 1997 and represents an extension for the work published by the previous investigators. Hypocentral locations were determined for 180 earthquakes (duration magnitude ranged between 1.6 and 4.3) selected from 300 recorded events. All these events are located with epicentral error and depth error of less than 2 km. The spatial distribution of these earthquakes indicates the presence of three active areas. These are Shadwan Island, Gubal Island and the area adjacent to the southern tip of Sinai Peninsula. Such pattern of activity implies a localization of stress below these areas. The concentration of the stress field in these areas may have been strongly controlled by ductile necking and or intrusion. Composite fault plane solutions were also constructed for each of the three active areas. The data for each area was divided into groups, according to geographical position and uniformity of polarity data. In Shadwan Island, the composite fault plane solution of 15 events shows almost pure dip-slip motion. The composite fault plane solutions in Gubal Island and the area adjacent to the southern tip of Sinai Peninsula indicate a mixed regime of both strike-slip and extensional faulting mechanisms. The stress regime obtained from the fault plane solutions in this study is predominantly NNE-SSW tensional stress field. This result is consistent with the present day stress field, which has a 010° ± 18° orientation. The overall results are correlated with the structural setting of the area known from other sources.

    Background: The completion of a thesis is a significant requirement for both a Master's and a doctorate degree in general practice/family medicine (GP/FM). A postgraduate thesis is a well-planned, time-intensive activity carried out over several years. The quality of the theses can be judged by the proportion of published papers. Objective: This study aimed to describe Master's and doctoral theses in family medicine and their publications between 1982 and 2014. Materials and Methods: GP/FM degree theses were reviewed at the Faculty of Medicine and central Suez Canal libraries. Several characteristics were extracted from each thesis relating to the main researcher, supervisors, themes, and study methods according to predefined criteria. Publications from the theses were described. Results: Over 33 years, 208 theses were completed by 173 GP/FM researchers. The majority of the theses were for Master's degrees (84.1%). Regarding the study design, most of the degree theses were cross-sectional studies (76.9%). The adult population was targeted in 33.7% of research theses. Nonprobability sampling was used in 51%. Rural communities were the setting of research in 43.8%, and primary health center (PHC)-based studies in 59.1%. The “Patient” category exceeded the other categories (28.4%). Publication from theses started in the second decade of research production. Of the degree theses, 21.6% original articles were published. Only 13.3% of articles from theses were published in PubMed-indexed journals. The researcher was first author in 62.2% of published articles. Conclusion: The production of GP/FM theses and their publications are going to increase. Continuous assessment and planning for GP/FM studies are recommended. PMID:25949959

    Gab-Alla, Ali A.-F. A.

    Caulerpa prolifera (Forsskal) Lamouroux, a green alga, widespread in tropical and subtropical seas is now invading species to the Suez Canal during last recent years after 2000; it is widely spread, colonizing its western sandy shore at shallow waters of 1-2 m depth. It has the potential to supplant native vegetation, thereby altering the structure and function of the subtidal marine landscape, supplant seagrass H. stipulacea. According to the present study, based on biometric parameters, the frequency of occurrence, abundance and density analyses, the seaweed C. prolifera is more frequent, abundant and dense in Suez Canal than the seagrass H. stipulacea, which is very rare. Instead C. prolifera forming extended dense meadows with percentage cover nearly 100% m-2 at many sites. This mainly happened; due to the competitive success of C. prolifera which seems to be related to its big size, high density, rapid growth, high efficiency in dim light conditions, high tolerance to severe nutrient limitation and salinity and temperature fluctuations and to the production of toxic secondary metabolites. The presence of these toxic secondary metabolites explains why C. prolifera is avoided by many of macro invertebrates as a habitat or feeding grounds.

    Detailed field mapping and structural studies on a segment of the Gulf of Suez rift in the west central part of Sinai Peninsula indicate the presents of a set of WNW-ESE striking dextral faults cutting another set of NNE-SSE striking sinistral fault. Both fault sets cut and obliterate an older fault set striking NW-SE. The NW-SE striking fault set is known to be of Oligo-Miocene time. The WNW-ESE and the NNE-SSW striking fault affect Pliocene and Pleistocene sediments. Therefore these two fault sets are younger. These angle between these two fault sets are in the range of 60-80 degrees and are believed to be a conjugate fault set that they are temporally associated. These observations indicate that the rifting is still active. This observation is confirmed by earthquake activity at the same area.

    In order to understand the structure and biological significance of integrons and associated gene cassettes in marine polluted sediments, metagenomic DNAs were extracted from sites at Suez and Tokyo Bays. PCR amplicons containing new integrase genes, intI, linked with novel gene cassettes, were recovered and had sizes from 1.8 to 2.5?kb. This approach uncovered, for the first time, the structure and diversity of both marine integron attachment site, attI, and the first gene cassette, the most efficiently expressed integron-associated gene cassette. The recovered 13 and 20 intI phylotypes, from Suez and Tokyo Bay samples, respectively, showed a highly divergence, suggesting a difference in integron composition between the sampling sites. Some intI phylotypes showed similarity with that from Geobacter metallireducens, belonging to Deltaproteobacteria, the dominant class in both sampling sites, as determined by 16S rRNA gene analysis. Thirty distinct families of putative attI site, as determined by the presence of an attI-like simple site, were recovered. A total of 146 and 68 gene cassettes represented Suez and Tokyo Bay unsaturated cassette pools, respectively. Gene cassettes, including a first cassette, from both sampling sites encoded two novel families of glyoxalase/bleomycin antibiotic-resistance protein. Gene cassettes from Suez Bay encoded proteins similar to haloacid dehalogenases, protein disulfide isomerases and death-on-curing and plasmid maintenance system killer proteins. First gene cassettes from Tokyo Bay encoded a xenobiotic-degrading protein, cardiolipin synthetase, esterase and WD40-like ? propeller protein. Many of the first gene cassettes encoded proteins with no ascribable function but some of them were duplicated and possessed signal functional sites, suggesting efficient adaptive functions to their bacterial sources. Thus, each sampling site had a specific profile of integrons and cassette types consistent with the hypothesis that the environment shapes the genome. PMID:21248857

  4. Controls on the development and evolution of transfer zones: the influence of basement structure and sedimentary thickness in the Suez rift and Red Sea

    1997-06-01

    Detailed field mapping of the northern part of the Gebel Um Hammad-Gebel Duwi area on the western margin of the Red Sea indicates oppositely dipping rift blocks separated by a 60-km long, WNW-ESE-oriented, reactivated pre-rift fault of Late Precambrian age parallel to the Najd fault system of the Arabian-Nubian Shield. This fault forms the Sudmain transfer zone between the oppositely tilted half-grabens in the northwestern Red Sea region and is associated by a SE-plunging syncline. This pre-rift fault was reactivated by dextral transtension during the Late Oligocene rift opening. Compared to the transfer zones of the Suez rift, the Sudmain transfer zone is narrower. The Gebel Sufr El Dara transfer zone (between the southern and central half-grabens of the Suez rift) is 20 km wide and is also controlled by pre-rift faults oriented ENE-WSW. The latter were reactivated by left-lateral slip during the rift opening. On the other hand, the Gharandal transfer zone (northern part of the Suez rift) is 40-60 km wide and is not affected by the pre-rift faults in the Precambrian basement, perhaps owing to the large thickness of pre-rift sedimentary rocks in this area. The location of the Gharandal transfer zone was controlled by a NE-SW-oriented 'Syrian arc' fold. This study suggests that the northward increase in the width of transfer zones as well as the northward decrease in the length of half-grabens in the Suez-northern Red Sea rift system are related to the corresponding increase in the thickness of pre-rift Phanerozoic sedimentary section from about 400 m in the south to about 1800 m in the north.

    The quality factor Q has been estimated using spectral amplitudes of P and S waves from earthquakes recorded by the seismic network of the Egyptian National Seismological Network (ENSN) in southern Sinai and southern Gulf of Suez region. The earthquakes recorded at nine stations - DHA, NUB, TR1, TR2, KAT, SH2, GRB, HRG and SFG have been used in this study. The spectral amplitude ratios have been calculated between 2 - 20 Hz and single station spectral ratio method has been applied for this purpose. The results show that the quality factors for both P and S waves (Qp and Qs) increase as a function of frequency according to law the Q = Q0fn. By averaging the estimated Q- Value obtained at all stations we calculated the average attenuation laws: Qp = (13.15± 0.76) f0.95± 0.19 and Qs = (20.05± 0.79) f1.03±0.04 for P and S waves respectively. These relations are useful for the estimation of source parameters of earthquakes and simulation of earthquake strong ground motions. The QS /QP ratio for KAT station is less than 1 at lower frequencies, whereas at HRG and SH2 stations QS /QP ratio is are greater than 1.

    In this paper we take advantage of the two field tracing experiments carried out under the IAEA project EGY/07/002, to develop a modelling study on the dispersion of radioactive pollution in the Suez Canal. The experiments were accomplished by using rhodamine B as a tracer, and water samples were measured by luminescence spectrometry. The presence of natural luminescent particles in the canal waters limited the use of some field data. During experiments, water levels, velocities, wind and other physical parameters were recorded to supply appropriate information for the modelling work. From this data set, the hydrodynamics of the studied area has been reasonably described. We apply a 1-D-Gaussian and 2-D modelling approaches to predict the position and the spatial shape of the plume. The use of different formulations for dispersion coefficients is studied. These dispersion coefficients are then applied in a 2-D-hydrodynamic and dispersion model for the Bitter Lake to investigate different scenarios of accidental discharges.

    2011-01-01

    Introduction: Physician rapport with patients is described as a vital component of relationship-centered care, but rapport-building communication behaviors may exceed boundaries and instead indicate patronizing behavior toward patients with disabilities. This paper addresses the types of communication behaviors and contexts for interpreting when rapport building extends beyond boundaries toward patients with disabilities. Methods: Videotaped interactions between third- and fourth-year medical students (N = 142) and standardized patient educators with physical disabilities were qualitatively analyzed. Results: Results suggest six primary themes of exceeding expected rapport boundaries, including baby talk (ie, exaggerated nonverbal gestures and “we” language to indicate “you”), kinesic movement (ie, stiff posture and awkward handshakes), vocalics (ie, volume or pitch that interfered with the flow of conversation), relationship assumptions (ie, communicating assumptions that relationships were grounded in care-receiving), emotional divergence from patient disclosure (ie, minimizing or embellishing disability), and inconsistency with patient emotional cues (ie, responding to negative or neutral disclosure by overly accentuating positive interpretation). Discussion: This study suggests that communication behaviors generally described as positive, rapport-building behaviors can pose negative implications when they exceed the expected quantity or duration, when they are inconsistent with patient verbal disclosure, or when verbal and nonverbal messages are inconsistent. Identified themes serve as examples to understand when rapport building exceeds beyond affiliation and instead appears to indicate patronizing behavior toward patients with disabilities. Suggestions for interpreting communication behaviors within the context of patient disclosure and building capacity to distinguish attitudes and biases limiting communication are addressed.

    1988-01-01

    Quantitative basin analysis (backstripping) was carried out to examine the interplay between basin subsidence, tectonic events, sedimentation patterns and sea level changes in a young developing ocean basin and continental margin. Rifting and subsidence were initiated {approximately}25 Ma with the earliest sediments within the basin recording the transition from continental to marine depositional environments. Open marine sedimentation continued in the basin from early to middle Miocene times with a series of prograding siliciclastic fan-deltas developing at the rift-margins in response to major tectonic events and periods of lowered global sea level. Opening and major subsidence with the rift-basin was termination at {approximately}15.5 Ma as tensional plate motions were transferred from the Gulf of Suez to sinistral strike-slip movement on the Dead Sea transform fault system. Tectonic quiescence combined with lowered global sea level resulted in the deposition of up to 3 km of evaporites in the rift basin from middle to late Miocene times. The evaporite strata contain significant amounts of well-preserved organic carbon (OC). Rock-Eval and elemental pyrolysis analysis indicates that the kerogen in these OC-rich evaporite associated sediments constitutes good to excellent potential hydrocarbon source-rock. Gas chromatography studies show that free hydrocarbons derived from these sediments are indigenous and derived from organic carbon deposited and preserved in a highly reducing, anoxic, hypersaline environment. Thermal modeling and Rock-Eval pyrolysis analysis results indicate that although evaporite-associated OC is immature in the Gulf of Suez and northern Red Sea, OC-rich evaporite strata are buried within the oil window in the southern Red Sea.

    Therapeutic rapport between counselors and clients in drug user treatment has been shown to be an important predictor of follow-up outcomes. This naturalistic study investigated the relationship of counseling rapport to drug-related topics discussed in counseling sessions in a sample of 330 clients and nine counselors. These voluntary clients had been admitted to a private, for-profit outpatient methadone treatment in Texas between September 1995 and August 1997 and received no-fee services for a year for participation in this study. The data were gathered using forms in the TCU community treatment assessments (www.ibr.tcu.edu) that measured intake information, counseling session topics, and counselor evaluation of the client. A majority were males, Hispanic, had a pending legal status and the average age was 39. Co-occurring drug dependence for these heroin users included cocaine (38%) and alcohol (31%). The results supported the hypothesis that higher rapport would be associated with addressing clients in a more "supportive approach" that emphasized relapse prevention and strengths-building while lower rapport would be associated with a punitive counseling style that stressed program rules and compliance. The influences of client background, counselor differences, and during-treatment positive urines were also examined. Although counselors differed in their general manner of dealing with clients, each also showed flexibility determined in part by client behavior (such as continued cocaine use). The findings indicate that focusing on constructive solutions is the preferred counseling approach. PMID:19137479

    L'objectif de cette étude était de rapporter 3 cas de jumeaux conjoints, discuter de l'importance du diagnostic anténatal et de décrire les particularités diagnostiques, thérapeutiques et évolutives. Sur 45700 accouchements du 1er Février 2009 au 31 Décembre 2011, 3 cas de jumeaux conjoints ont été enregistrés, soit 1 cas pour 15000 accouchements. Ces cas ont été diagnostiqués au cours du travail au décours d'une dystocie mécanique ou d'une césarienne réalisée pour une autre indication. Il s'agissait d'un cas de jumeaux conjoints thoraco-omphalopages, un cas de diprosopes et un cas de dicéphales. L'accouchement dans les trois cas était fait par voie haute permettant d'extraire des mort-nés frais. Nous insistons sur l'intérêt d'un diagnostic anténatal précoce par le recours à l’échographie afin d’éviter les accidents mécaniques d'un accouchement qui ne saurait s'accomplir par voie basse.

    The October field, a sub-salt giant in the extensional Gulf of Suez (Egypt) has been structurally reinterpreted for new reserve opportunities. Quantitative SCAT analyses of the wellbore dip data have been integrated with 3D seismic by using dip isogons to construct local structural sections. SCAT dip analysis was critical to the reinterpretation because SCAT revealed important structural information that previously was unresolvable using conventional tadpole plots. In gross aspect, the October Field is a homocline that trends NW-SE, dips to the NE, and is closed on the SW (updip) by the major Clysmic Normal Fault. SCAT accurately calculated the overall trend of the field, but also identified important structural anomalies near the Clysmic fault and in the northwest and southeast plunge ends. In the northwest plunge end, SCAT has identified new, south dipping blocks that are transitional to the structurally-higher North October field. The southeast plunge end has been reinterpreted with correct azimuthal trends and new fault-block prospects. These new SCAT results have successfully improved the 3D seismic interpretation by providing a foundation of accurate in-situ structural control in an area of poor-to-fair seismic quality below the Miocene salt package.

    Introduction L'objectif de ce travail était de déterminer les facteurs influençant l'initiation au traitement antirétroviral des personnes vivant avec le VIH (PVVIH) dans les centres de traitements agrées (CTA) de Bamenda et de Bertoua au Cameroun. Méthodes Il s'agissait d'une étude transversale, analytique réalisée de Janvier à Avril 2011, dans les CTA de Bamenda et de Bertoua. Pour cette étude, nous avons obtenu une clairance éthique. Résultats Nous avons étudiés 460 dossiers de patients séropositifs en phase d'initiation au traitement antirétroviral dans les CTA de Bamenda et de Bertoua, 53,9% et 46,1% respectivement. L ‘âge médian était de 36 ans. La plupart des séropositifs à Bertoua (41) avaient fait un dépistage volontaire du VIH par rapport à ceux de Bamenda (22) (p= 0.008). Il y ‘avait plus de VIH de type 1 et 2 dans le CTA de Bamenda (15) par rapport à Bertoua (3) (p= 0.011). La majorité des patients était classé au stade clinique II à Bamenda (54,0%) tandis qu ‘à Bertoua le stade clinique III était prédominant (52,4%) (p = 0,000). Le taux médian de CD4 était de 133 cellules/mm3 dans le CTA de Bamenda et de 175 cellules/mm3 à Bertoua (p = 0,008). La Zidovudine était plus prescrit à Bamenda et le Ténofovir à Bertoua (p = 0,000). L ‘Efavirenz était plus prescrit à Bertoua tandis que la Névirapine l ‘était plus à Bamenda (p = 0,000). Le Lopinavir/r était plus prescrit à Bamenda qu ‘à Bertoua (p = 0,017). Conclusion Il apparait urgent de standardiser la prise en charge des PVVIH dans les CTA du Cameroun. PMID:25184023

  13. Safety Net Patients with Diabetes Experience Less Rapport Building When Providers Demonstrate High Computer Use

    Introduction: Limited research on how computer use influences physician-patient communication has yielded both positive and negative effects. Methods: This study aims to determine the effects of computer use on rapport building in diverse safety-net settings. Utilizing video recordings of patient encounters in both primary and specialty settings, we conducted an observational study at a large US public hospital with a basic electronic health records (EHR) system. Eligible patients included English and/or Spanish-speaking adults (?18 years old) with diabetes who receive primary and subspecialty care at five hospital clinics. We coded verbal communication behaviors using an adapted version of the Roter Interaction Analysis System (RIAS, 2002). The primary outcome was rapport-building statements (such as reassurance, concern, empathy, or partnership statements) by patients and providers. The primary predictor was high concurrent computer use, categorized as encounters in which >15% of total statements (provider and patient) had concurrent provider computer use. Analysts also rated overall computer use using a 3-item observation instrument (total possible score 0–9), categorizing high use as score =4. We performed regression analysis using generalized estimating equations to account for clustering by providers, controlling for patient age and gender. Results: To date, we have coded 15 encounters among 15 English-speaking patients and 13 providers. Among patients, 53% were women. Although all encounters were in English, 29% preferred Spanish. Among providers, 62% were women; 62% PCPs. Patients were less likely to use any rapport building statements with providers who demonstrated high concurrent computer use (IRR = 0.989; 95% CI = 0.977–1.000). Specifically, both providers and patients were less likely to use emotional rapport building statements (IRR = 0.968, 95% CI = 0.941–0.996; IRR = 0.950, 95% CI = 0.907–0.996, respectively). In addition, high overall computer use was associated with less positive rapport-building by providers and patients (IRR=0.961, 95% CI = 0.954–0.968; IRR = 0.993, 95% CI = 0.987–0.999, respectively). However, both providers (IRR = 1.173, 95% CI = 1.084–1.268) and patients (IRR = 1.302, 95% CI = 1.100–1.542) were more likely to offer personal remarks and social conversations during encounters with high overall computer use. Conclusions: Preliminary analyses suggest that high computer use may be associated with less overall rapport-building, but personal conversations or “chit-chat” occur more frequently. EHR use may influence patient-provider conversations towards more biomedically-oriented agendas. Future analyses will examine the relationship between computer use and other communication outcomes, such as biomedical and psychosocial statements. Although EHRs are promoted as tools to improve efficiency and safety, it is crucial to gain a better understanding of the how computer use alters patient-provider relationships and communication.

    Heavy metals and hydrocarbons are of the most common marine pollutants around the world. The present study aimed to assess the concentration of petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals in tissues of the snail cyclope neritea, water and sediments from two sites of the study area (Temsah lake and Suez canal) represent polluted and unpolluted sites respectively. The results showed that, the levels of the heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Co, Mg and Zn) in the polluted area have reached harmful limits recorded globally. Lead in water, sediment and tissue of the snail reached to 0.95 ppm, 4.54 ppm and 7.93 ppm respectively. Cadmium reached 0.31 ppm, 1.15 ppm and 3.08 ppm in the corresponding samples. Cobalt was not detected in water, but it reached 1.42 ppm and 10.36 ppm in the sediment and snails tissue respectively. Magnesium in water, sediment and tissue of the snail reached 3.73 ppm, 9.44 ppm and12.6 ppm respectively. Zinc reached 0.11 ppm, 3.89 ppm and 12.60ppm in the corresponding samples. Meanwhile, hydrocarbons in the polluted area (site1) reached 110.10 ?g/L, 980.15 ?g/g and 228.00 ?g/g in water sediment and digestive gland tissues of the snails respectively. Whereas, hydrocarbons in the unpolluted area (site2) were estimated as 14.20 ?g/L, 55.60 ?g/g and 22.66 ?g/g in water, sediment and tissue of the snails respectively. The combination of histopathological image with monitoring of the metal level in the digestive gland of the present snail provides an important tool for early detection of impending environmental problems and potential public health issues. Petroleum hydrocarbons are toxic to the marine fauna when present above certain limit in the marine water. The major detoxification organ in molluscs is the digestive gland, which has been used as a bioindicator organ for toxicity assessment. The effect of high crude oil on the digestive gland tubules of exposed snails when examined microscopically reveals a series of histological changes which indicates that the cellular compensatory mechanism is activated by hydrocarbons. These changes include vacuolation and presence of pyknotic nuclei. PMID:25878794

    Introduction L'objectif de ce travail était d’évaluer l'impact du traitement antirétroviral sur le profil biologique des enfants VIH positifs suivis au Centre Hospitalier et Universitaire de Yaoundé au Cameroun. Méthodes Il s'agissait d'une étude rétrospective réalisée de Mai 2003 à Décembre 2012 au CHU de Yaoundé au Cameroun. Pour cette étude, nous avons obtenu une clairance éthique. Résultats L’âge moyen était de 54.02±46.34 mois. The sexe ratio était de 0.96 en faveur des garçons. Le diagnostic s’était fait tardivement (74.2%) ainsi que la mise sous traitement (83.3%). Seuls 36 des 116 enfants (31%) avait pu avoir un bilan biologique à l'initiation du traitement antirétroviral et six mois après l'initiation du traitement antirétroviral. Après six mois de traitement, nous avons enregistrés une augmentation significative des paramètres biologiques suivants: taux de glycémie de 0.09g/L (0.75-0.84; p= 0.007), pourcentage de CD4 chez les enfants de moins de 5 ans de 4.62% (20.12-24.75; p = 0.022), valeur absolue de CD4 chez les enfants de plus de 5 ans de 294 cellules/mm3 (151.18-445.18; p = 0.011), le rapport CD4/CD8 de 0.35 (0.55-0.90; p = 0.000). Enfin, après six mois de traitement, on enregistrait une baisse significative de la charge virale du VIH de 3.90 log (5.85-1.95; p = 0.006). Conclusion Il ressort de cette étude que la restauration immunitaire et la suppression virologique peuvent être obtenus après six mois de traitement antirétroviral. Cependant, des efforts doivent encore être faits en ce qui concerne la prise en charge du suivi biologique, gage d'un bon suivi thérapeutique au Cameroun.

    Exclusive measurements have been made of Au +Au reactions with beam energies ranging from 0.25 A to 1.15 A GeV. We present measurements of directed collective flow averaged over all light fragments with masses up to alphas, as well as separate measurements for protons, deuterons, tritons, 3He, 4He, and Li. The results show a strong increase of the directed flow with fragment mass at all energies measured. Experimental results are compared with a quantum molecular dynamics model. We find that neither the ``soft'' nor the ``hard'' equation of state can describe the data over the entire range of beam energies.

    Although age-related deficits in emotion perception have been established using photographs of individuals, the extension of these findings to dynamic displays and dyads is just beginning. Similarly, most eye-tracking research in the person perception literature, including those that study age differences, have focused on individual attributes gleaned from static images; to our knowledge, no previous research has considered cue use in dyadic judgments with eye-tracking. The current study employed a Brunswikian lens model analysis in conjunction with eye-tracking measurements to study age differences in the judgment of rapport, a social construct comprised of mutual attentiveness, positive feelings, and coordination between interacting partners. Judgment accuracy and cue utilization of younger (n = 47) and older (n = 46) adults were operationalized as correlations between a perceiver's judgments and criterion values within a set of 34 brief interaction videos in which 2 opposite sex college students discussed a controversial topic. No age differences emerged in the accuracy of judgments; however, pathways to accuracy differed by age: Younger adults' judgments relied on some behavioral cues more than older adults. In addition, eye-tracking analyses revealed that older adults spent more time looking at the bodies of the targets in the videos, whereas younger adults spent more time looking at the targets' heads. The contributions from both the lens model and eye-tracking findings provide distinct but complementary insights to our understanding of age-related continuities and shifts in social perceptual processing.

    Bimetallic and trimetallic nanoparticles have attracted significant attention in recent times due to their enhanced electrochemical and catalytic properties compared to monometallic nanoparticles. The numerical calculations using Mie theory has been carried out for three-layered metal nanoshell dielectric-metal-metal (DMM) system consisting of a particle with a dielectric core (Al@Al2O3), a middle metal Ag (Au) layer and an outer metal Au (Ag) shell. The results have been interpreted using plasmon hybridization theory. We have also prepared Al@Al2O3@Ag@Au and Al@Al2O3@AgAu triple-layered core-shell or alloy nanostructure by two-step laser ablation method and compared with calculated results. The synthesis involves temporal separations of Al, Ag, and Au deposition for step-by-step formation of triple-layered core-shell structure. To form Al@Ag nanoparticles, we ablated silver for 40 min in aluminium nanoparticle colloidal solution. As aluminium oxidizes easily in water to form alumina, the resulting structure is core-shell Al@Al2O3. The Al@Al2O3 particle acts as a seed for the incoming energetic silver particles for multilayered Al@Al2O3@Ag nanoparticles is formed. The silver target was then replaced by gold target and ablation was carried out for different ablation time using different laser energy for generation of Al@Al2O3@Ag@Au core-shell or Al@Al2O3@AgAu alloy. The formation of core-shell and alloy nanostructure was confirmed by UV-visible spectroscopy. The absorption spectra show shift in plasmon resonance peak of silver to gold in the range 400-520 nm with increasing ablation time suggesting formation of Ag-Au alloy in the presence of alumina particles in the solution.

    Introduction La présente étude rapporte les données sérologiques de 306 sérums collectés chez des parturientes au CHU de Bobo Dioulasso et analysés rétrospectivement au CHU de Reims en 2011. Le but était de déterminer le statut sérologique de ces parturientes et d'en déduire la conduite à tenir. Méthodes La recherche des IgG et des IgM anti toxoplasmiques était systématique. Les techniques d'agglutination haute sensibilisée et celle d'Immunocapture M ont servi à la recherche respective des anticorps spécifiques IgG et des IgM. Résultats Sur 306 sérums analysés, 95 (31%) avaient des IgG positifs et aucun n'avait des IgM. Deux cent onze (211) sérums (69%) des sérums n'avaient ni IgG, ni IgM. Conclusion Nos résultats montrent que 31% des femmes en dehors d'une immunodépression sous jacente, possèdent une immunité résiduelle vis à vis de Toxoplasma gondii et n'ont pas la nécessité d'avoir une surveillance sérologique pendant la grossesse. Cependant, 69% (211) des parturientes sont à risque d'une séroconversion, et devraient bénéficier de conseils hygiéno diététiques, associés à une surveillance sérologique durant la grossesse. Ces résultats montrent l'intérêt de mettre en place des mesures de prévention contre la toxoplasmose congénitale, étant l'une des affections materno - foetales les plus fréquentes par la mise en place d'un diagnostic prénatal de la toxoplasmose en routine dans notre hôpital.

    2005-02-01

    In situ grazing-incidence x-ray diffraction studies of reconstructed Au(111) electrodes in aqueous electrolyte solutions are presented, which reveal a significantly increased compression of the Au surface layer during Au electrodeposition as compared to Au(111) surfaces under ultrahigh vacuum conditions or in the Au-free electrolyte. The compression increases towards more negative potentials, reaching 5.3% at the most negative potentials studied. It may be explained within a simple thermodynamic model by a release of potential-induced surface stress.

    2014-01-01

    Dans le monde, la leishmaniose viscérale humaine est connue pour avoir comme principale source d'infection les Canidés domestiques et sauvages. Au centre du Maroc, les données épidémiologiques, cliniques et parasitologiques sur la leishmaniose canine, sont quasiment inexistantes. Ce travail traite une étude prospective au cours de laquelle 61 sérums canins ont été analysés par un test rapide et par l'immunofluorescence indirecte. La sensibilité du test rapide par rapport à celle de l'immunofluorescence indirecte (IFI) est de 33,33%. La fréquence de la maladie chez les chiens s’élève à 9,83% (Test Rapide) et 24,59% (IFI). 73,33% des cas canins positifs à la sérologie sont asymptomatiques. Ce sont les jeunes chiens de moins de 5 ans qui sont les plus fréquemment atteints avec une sensibilité de la race Berger Allmand à l'infection. Cette étude a permis de mettre en évidence la présence de chiens leishmaniens (15 chiens séropositifs parmi 61) et de prouver l'existence du réservoir canin. Une stratégie de prévention active doit être mise en place. PMID:25852791

    Les ganglions de la tête et du cou sont parmi les localisations les plus fréquentes de la tuberculose, un problème de santé publique dans le monde. Une étude rétrospective conduite entre 2001 et 2010 rapporte les caractéristiques épidémiologiques et cliniques de l'adénite tuberculeuse de la tête et du cou, au CHU Sanou Souro, au Burkina Faso. Au total, 115 patients ont été observés dont l'âge était compris entre 2 ans et 64 ans (moyenne 31,46 ans). Il y avait 53 patients de sexe masculin (46,1%) et 62 de sexe féminin (53,9%). Un pic de fréquence de 39,8% était observé entre 30 et 39 ans. Les adénopathies cervicales étaient multiples chez 96,5% des patients et abcédées chez 30%. Elles étaient associées à des adénopathies extra cervicales chez 16,6% des patients. Chez 83,4% des patients, il a été noté un ou plusieurs signes à type d'asthénie et ou d'amaigrissement (70,8%), de fièvre 25% ou de toux (20,8%). L'infection associée la plus fréquente était celle par le VIH, observée chez 43,3% des patients. Les résultats de cette étude commandent la recherche systématique de l'infection par le VIH chez tout patient porteur d'adénite cervicale tuberculeuse dans un contexte de double endémicité de la tuberculose et de l'infection à VIH.

    La localisation cutanée de la maladie tuberculeuse demeure une forme rare et représente seulement 2,1% des localisations. L'objet de cette étude est de rapporter le profil épidémiologique, anatomoclinique et évolutif des cas de tuberculose ganglio-cutanée diagnostiqués dans un CHU au Burkina Faso. La fréquence de la tuberculose cutanée est très faible au CHUSS. Six cas ont été diagnostiqués entre 2004 et 2010, soit une fréquence de un cas par an. La durée d’évolution des cas allait de deux jusqu’à dix ans avant leur diagnostic. Les lésions observées étaient: trois scrofulodermes, trois gommes, une tuberculose testiculaire associée à un mal de Pott, un cas de polyadénopathies et des cicatrices atropho-rétractiles dans la plupart des cas. Sur le plan anatomopathologique, des granulomes tuberculoïdes ont été mis en évidence dans tous les cas avec une forte réaction tuberculinique à l'IDR. Sous antituberculeux pendant six mois, l’évolution a été bonne dans tous les cas mais au prix de séquelles cutanées cicatricielles inesthétiques. Son ampleur reste peut-être encore méconnue. Le renforcement du plateau technique du CHU et une bonne collaboration interdisciplinaire contribuerait à un meilleur diagnostic et prise en charge de cette affection. PMID:24648863

    Qualitative comparison of source sizes from pi-Xi correlations analyses in d+Au and Au+Au collisions at sqrt(s_NN)=200G GeV and sqrt(s_NN)=62 GeV is presented. For the most central Au+Au collisions at sqrt(s_NN)=200 GeV we report first quantitative results concerning size of the pi-Xi source and relative shift of the average emission points between pi and Xi showing that the homogeneity region of Xi source is smaller then that of pion and significantly shifted in the transverse direction.

    Introduction L'objectif de ce travail était de déterminer les facteurs de risque de l'infection par le VIH dans le district de santé de Meyomessala (Région du Sud) au Cameroun. Méthodes Il s'agissait d'une étude transversale, descriptive et analytique qui s'est déroulée de Février à Mai 2011. Pour cette étude, nous avons obtenu une clairance éthique. Résultats L’échantillon était constitué de 315 participants dont 181 (57,46%) hommes et 134 (42,54%) femmes. L’âge moyen était de 24,5±8ans (extrême: 15-45ans). Quarante personnes (40) étaient séropositifs, soit une prévalence de l'infection par le VIH de 12,7%. Cette prévalence augmentait significativement (p = 0) avec le nombre de partenaires occasionnels au cours des douze derniers mois, allant de 2,7% chez ceux n'ayant eu aucun partenaire occasionnel à 21,25% chez ceux ayant plus de trois partenaires occasionnels (RC = 9,72; IC = 1,27-74,14; P = 0,03). le fait d’être âgé entre 20 et 24 ans (RC = 4,88; IC = 1,74-13,67; p = 0), avoir plus de trois partenaires sexuels au cours des douze derniers mois (RC = 9,72; IC = 1,27-74,14; p = 0,03), avoir les rapports sexuels avec les prostitués (RC = 2,86; IC = 1,42-5,76; p = 0), avoir eu le chlamydia (RC = 3,00; IC = 1,07-8,39; p = 0,04), avoir eu la syphilis (RC = 3,35; IC = 1,57-7,14; p = 0), avoir des avantages sociaux lors du premier rapport sexuel (RC = 2,57; IC = 1,03-6,43; p = 0,04) constituaient des potentiels facteurs de risque du VIH. Conclusion Il apparait urgent d'intensifier les campagnes de sensibilisation au risque d'infection par le VIH et les maladies sexuellement transmissibles dans le district de santé de Meyomessala PMID:25419299

    We report on the fabrication and characterization of CdTe thin-film solar cells with Cu-free MoO3- x /Au back contacts. CdTe solar cells with sputtered CdTe absorbers of thicknesses from 0.5 to 1.75 ?m were fabricated on Pilkington SnO2:F/SnO2-coated soda-lime glasses coated with a 60- to 80-nm sputtered CdS layer. The MoO3- x /Au back contact layers were deposited by thermal evaporation. The incorporation of MoO3- x layer was found to improve the open circuit voltage ( V OC) but reduce the fill factor of the ultrathin CdTe cells. The V OC was found to increase as the CdTe thickness increased.

    Résumé Ces recommandations sont le fruit d'un processus multidisciplinaire national ayant duré un an et visant à déterminer si et comment l'on pourrait procéder au don d'organes après un décès d'origine cardiocirculatoire («don après le décès cardiocirculatoire», ou DDC) au Canada. Le forum national organisé en février 2005 a permis aux participants de discuter et d'élaborer des recommandations sur les principes, interventions et pratiques se rapportant au DDC. Les aspects éthiques et juridiques ont été abordés dans les discussions. À la fin du Forum, la majorité des participants ont été favorables à l'implantation de programmes de DDC au Canada. Les participants du Forum ont également convenu qu'il fallait formuler et prôner des valeurs fondamentales pour orienter l'élaboration de programmes et de protocoles basés sur le cadre médical, éthique et juridique établi lors de cette réunion. Même si la possibilité d'un don d'organes et de tissus doit faire partie intégrante des soins de fin de vie, il faut insister sur le fait que le devoir de diligence envers les patients mourants et leurs familles doit demeurer la priorité des équipes soignantes. La complexité et les répercussions profondes du décès sont reconnues et doivent être respectées, de même que les différences personnelles, ethnoculturelles et religieuses face à la mort et au don d'organes. Les décisions d'arrêter le traitement de maintien des fonctions vitales, la prise en charge des derniers moments de la vie et le diagnostic de décès selon des critères cardiocirculatoires doivent être distincts et indépendants des processus de don et transplantation. Ce rapport contient des recommandations destinées aux gestionnaires de program, aux autorités sanitaires régionales et aux instances appelés à élaborer les protocoles de DDC. Les programmes doivent être conçus en fonction des éléments suivants : direction et planification locales, éducation et engagement des intervenants, mécanismes d'assurance de la sécurité et de la qualité et information du public. Il est recommandé de commencer par un program de DDC contrôlé à l'unité de soins intensifs où, après une décision par consentement mutuel de cesser le traitement de maintien des fonctions vitales, la mort est attendue, mais n'est pas survenue, ce qui rend possible des discussions non précipitées sur le consentement. Un don non contrôlé, en cas de décès après un arrêt cardiaque non prévu, doit être envisagé seulement une fois que le program de DDC contrôlé a été établi. Bien qu'il soit recommandé de restreindre le programme initial au don de reins, le don d'autres organes peut aussi être envisagé selon l'expertise régionale en matière de transplantation. Les répercussions d'un DDC, y compris les interventions pratiquées avant et après le décès, sur la famille du donneur, la disponibilité des organes, la fonction du greffon et la survie du receveur doivent être documentées de façon méthodique et examinées.

    The inclusive light fragment (Z<=7) yield data in Au+Au reactions, measured by the EOS Collaboration at the LBNL Bevalac, are presented as a function of multiplicity. Moving from central to peripheral collisions the measured charge distributions develop progressively according to a power law which can be fitted, within errors, by a single ? exponent independently of the bombarding energy except for the data at 250A MeV. In addition, the location of the maximum in the individual yields of different charged fragments, for a given beam energy, shifts towards lower multiplicity as the fragment charge increases from Z=3 to Z=7. This trend is common to all six measured beam energies. Moments of charge distribution are also reported. The universal features observed in the present Au + Au data are consistent with previous experimental findings in the Au + C multifragmentation reaction at 1A GeV.

    The neutral pion spectra were measured by the PHENIX detector in |y| < 0.35 in Au+Au system at = 39, 62.4 and 200 GeV. The nuclear modification factor (RAA) shows significant suppression and strong centrality dependence in Au+Au collisions. The azimuthal anisotropy is measured with respect to the reaction plane, determined at large rapidity. Here we present both RAA and azimuthal anisotropy of the ?0 in Au+Au for three different energies.

    Interfacial nanodroplets were grafted to the surfaces of self-sacrificed template particles in a galvanic reaction system to assist the construction of 3D Au porous structures. The interfacial nanodroplets were formed via direct adsorption of surfactant-free emulsions onto the particle surfaces. The interfacial nanodroplets discretely distributed at the template particle surfaces and served as soft templates to guide the formation of porous Au structures. The self-variation of footprint sizes of interfacial nanodroplets during Au growth gave rise to a hierarchical pore size distribution of the obtained Au porous particles. This strategy could be easily extended to synthesize bimetal porous particles such as Au-Pt and Au-Pd. The obtained porous Au, Au-Pt, and Au-Pd particles showed excellent catalytic activity in catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol. PMID:24797697

    We report measurements of ? meson production in p + p, d +Au, and Au +Au collisions using the STAR detector at RHIC. We compare the ? yield to the measured cross section in p + p collisions in order to quantify any modifications of the yield in cold nuclear matter using d +Au data and in hot nuclear matter using Au +Au data separated into three centrality classes. Our p + p measurement is based on three times the statistics of our previous result. We obtain a nuclear modification factor for ? (1 S + 2 S + 3 S) in the rapidity range | y | < 1 in d +Au collisions of RdAu = 0.79 ± 0.24 (stat.) ± 0.03 (syst.) ± 0.10 (p + p syst.). A comparison with models including shadowing and initial state parton energy loss indicates the presence of additional cold-nuclear matter suppression. Similarly, in the top 10% most-central Au +Au collisions, we measure a nuclear modification factor of RAA = 0.49 ± 0.1 (stat.) ± 0.02 (syst.) ± 0.06 (p + psyst.), which is a larger suppression factor than that seen in cold nuclear matter. Our results are consistent with complete suppression of excited-state ? mesons in Au +Au collisions. The additional suppression in Au +Au is consistent with the level expected in model calculations that include the presence of a hot, deconfined Quark-Gluon Plasma. However, understanding the suppression seen in d +Au is still needed before any definitive statements about the nature of the suppression in Au +Au can be made.

    The preliminary data of the PHENIX collaboration for the scaled variances of charged hadron multiplicity fluctuations in Au+Au at $\\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV are analyzed within the model of independent sources. We use the HSD transport model to calculate the participant number fluctuations and the number of charged hadrons per nucleon participant in different centrality bins. This combined picture leads to a good agreement with the PHENIX data and suggests that the measured multiplicity fluctuations result dominantly from participant number fluctuations. The role of centrality selection and acceptance is discussed separately.

    Ultra-peripheral collisions (UPC) of heavy-ions involve long range electromagnetic interactions at impact parameters twice larger than the nuclear radius, where no nucleon-nucleon collisions occur. The first measurement of photoproduction of $J/\\psi$ and of two-photon production of high-mass $e^+ e^-$ pairs in ultra-peripheral nucleus-nucleus interactions will be presented, using Au+Au data at $\\sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV. The measured cross sections at midrapidity are consistent with various theoretical predictions.

    The elliptic-flow ratio of neutrons with respect to protons or light complex particles in reactions of neutron-rich systems at relativistic energies is proposed as an observable sensitive to the strength of the symmetry term in the equation of state at supra-normal densities. The results obtained from the existing FOPI/LAND data for 197Au + 197Au collisions at 400 MeV/nucleon in comparison with the UrQMD model favor a moderately soft symmetry term with a density dependence of the potential term proportional to rho/rho_0^gamma with gamma = 0.9 +- 0.4.

    We examine creep of thin film Au on curved bimaterial Au\\/Si microcantilevers. Time-dependent inelastic strains in the Au film lead to gradual changes in the microcantilever curvature over time. Curvature–temperature–time experiments are used to examine the effects of hold temperature and maximum annealing temperature on the inelastic response of the Au films.

    MgAuGa (magnesium gold gallium), the first ternary representative of the Mg-Au-Ga system, crystallizes in the space group P62m and adopts the Fe2P structure type (Pearson symbol hP9). Various phases with the general composition AB2 have been reported in the surrounding binary systems, viz. Mg2Ga (hP18), MgGa2 (hP6; CaIn2 type), AuGa2 (cF12; CaF2 type), Au2Ga (oS24; Pd2As type) and Mg2Au (oP12; Co2Si type). In principle, MgAuGa can be obtained from each of them by partial replacement of the major element with the missing element. In fact, the structure of MgAuGa closely resembles hexagonal Mg2Ga through a direct group-subgroup relationship. MgAu2Ga (magnesium digold gallium) also crystallizes hexagonally in the space group P6(3)/mmc and is isotypic with Na3As. It adopts the structure of another binary compound, viz. Mg3Au (hP8), but shows an unexpected distribution of Mg, Au, and Ga among the atomic positions of the asymmetric unit. Both MgAuGa and MgAu2Ga can be described as formally anionic Au/Ga frameworks, with pseudo-hexagonal tunnels around Mg in MgAuGa or cages in MgAu2Ga. PMID:24705047

    Studies on the microstructure of the GaP/Au/Au-Zn system were carried out with an electron microscope and X-ray energy spectrometer. It was shown that an AuGa layer was formed at the interface between GaP and the Au/Au-Zn layer, and that the AuGa reaction layer contained Zn atoms. It is considered that the AuGa layer may contribute to the mechanical strength of the deposit layer for wire bonding and reliable ohmic contact for a P-type GaP. The Au underlayer seems to promote the formation of the AuGa layer, which starts forming at 490°C.

    The inclusive light fragment (Z?7) yield data in Au+Au reactions, measured by the EOS Collaboration at the LBNL Bevalac, are presented and discussed. For peripheral collisions the measured charge distributions develop progressively according to a power law which can be fitted by a single ? exponent independently of the bombarding energy in the range 250-1200 A MeV. In addition to this universal feature, we observe that the location of the maximum in the individual yields of different charged fragments shift towards lower multiplicity as the fragment charge increases from Z=3 to Z=7. This trend is common to all six measured beam energies. Moments of charge distributions and correlations among different moments are reported. Finally, the THe,DT thermometer has been constructed for central and peripheral collisions using the double yield ratios of He and D, T projectile fragments. The measured nuclear temperatures are in agreement with experimental findings in other fragmentation reactions.

    The system created in non-central relativisticnucleus-nucleus collisions possesses large orbital angular momentum. Dueto spin-orbit coupling, particles produced in such a system could becomeglobally polarized along the direction of the system angular momentum. Wepresent the results of Lambda and anti-Lambda hyperon global polarizationmeasurements in Au+Au collisions at sqrt sNN=62.4 GeV and 200 GeVperformed with the STAR detector at RHIC. The observed globalpolarization of Lambda and anti-Lambda hyperons in the STAR acceptance isconsistent with zero within the precision of the measurements. Theobtained upper limit, lbar P Lambda, anti-Lambda rbar<= 0.02, iscompared to the theoretical values discussed recently in theliterature.

    We report STAR's high precision measurements on ? production at mid-rapidity from ?{ s} = 200 GeV p + p, central ?{sNN} = 200 GeV Au + Au , and central ?{sNN} = 193 GeV U + U collisions. With the significantly reduced uncertainty in p + p reference, we observe that the ? enhancement factors at RHIC are in between SPS and LHC, while enhancement factors are systematically larger in central U + U collisions than in central Au + Au collisions. The ?RAA is much larger than protons and pions for pT up to 4 GeV/c in central Au + Au collisions. The ratio of ?RAA in central U + U to that in central Au + Au collisions is above unity for pT up to 6 GeV/c, which indicates coalescence/recombination to be the dominant production mechanism for ? in these collisions for the measured pT range.

    Qui détient le record des découvertes de comètes ? Une femme. Qui a permis de comprendre comment est organisée la population des étoiles ? Une femme. Qui a découvert la loi permettant d'arpenter l'Univers, a trouvé des phares dans l'espace, a compris le fonctionnement des forges stellaires et a bouleversé notre vision de l'Univers ? Encore et toujours une femme... Pourtant, quand on doit citer un astronome -- historique -- au hasard, on pense le plus souvent -- des hommes : Ptolémée, Galilée, Copernic ou, plus près de nous par exemple, Hubble. Certes, au cours des siècles, les femmes n'ont guère eu accès aux sciences en général et -- l'astronomie en particulier mais ce n'est pas une raison pour croire en l'absence totale de contributions dues au beau sexe ! C'est ce que dévoile ici l'auteur. Loin de toute forme de féminisme enragé, on suivra le parcours de quelques scientifiques importantes qui ont par hasard en commun une même particularité : leur sexe.

  20. Heterostructured CIGS-Au nanoparticles: from Au-CIGS side-by-side structure to Au-core/CIGS-shell configuration.

    Heterostructured Au-Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) nanoparticles (nps) with Au-CIGS side-by-side and Au-core/CIGS-shell configurations have been synthesized in a controllable manner using seed mediated growth. Detailed microstructure analysis reveals that (112) planes in the tetragonal chalcopyrite CIGS serve as the predominant termination surfaces during single phase CIGS nanoparticle growth. Preferential nucleation of Au on such planes determines the Au-CIGS side-by-side configuration when the pre-synthesized CIGS nps are used as the seeds for further Au growth. Reversing the growth sequence by employing Au nano-seeds results in Au-core/CIGS-shell configuration, as determined by the non-preferential nucleation of CIGS on the spherical Au nanoparticle surface. The different morphological configurations of the heterostructures are found to modify the surface plasmon resonance of Au in the corresponding samples. PMID:21701724

    chamber are reported for pp and d + Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV and for Au + Au collisions at 62.4, 130, and 200 GeV. Average transverse momenta, total particle production, particle yield ratios, strangeness, and baryon production rates...the effect is more prominent for more central collisions. The extracted average transverse momentum of each particle species follows a trend determined by the total charged-particle multiplicity density. The Bjorken energy density estimate is at least several GeV/fm(3) for a formation time less than 1 fm/c. A significantly larger net-baryon density and a stronger increase of the net-baryon density with centrality are found in Au + Au collisions at 62.4 GeV than at the two higher energies. Antibaryon production relative to total particle multiplicity is found to be constant over centrality, but increases with the collision energy. Strangeness production relative to total particle multiplicity is similar at the three measured RHIC energies. Relative strangeness production increases quickly with centrality in peripheral Au + Au collisions, to a value about 50% above the pp value, and remains rather constant in more central collisions. Bulk freeze-out properties are extracted from thermal equilibrium model and hydrodynamics-motivated blast-wave model fits to the data. Resonance decays are found to have little effect on the extracted kinetic freeze-out parameters because of the transverse momentum range of our measurements. The extracted chemical freeze-out temperature is constant, independent of collision system or centrality...its value is close to the predicted phase-transition temperature, suggesting that chemical freeze-out happens in the vicinity of hadronization and the chemical freeze-out temperature is universal despite the vastly different initial conditions in the collision systems. The extracted kinetic freeze-out temperature, while similar to the chemical freeze-out temperature in pp, d + Au, and peripheral Au + Au collisions, drops significantly with centrality in Au + Au collisions, whereas the extracted transverse radial flow velocity increases rapidly with centrality. There appears to be a prolonged period of particle elastic scatterings from chemical to kinetic freeze-out in central Au + Au collisions. The bulk properties extracted at chemical and kinetic freeze-out are observed to evolve smoothly over the measured energy range, collision systems, and collision centralities....

    Carlin-type gold deposits (CTGD) in Nevada have huge Au endowments that have made Nevada one of the leading Au producers in the world. Although they form one of the three most productive Au districts in the world, the deposits were not discovered until the early 1960's owing primarily to the lack of visible Au. Numerous studies have provided a detailed

    Au(2)H(-) was recognized and confirmed as a minor contamination to typical photoelectron spectra of Au(2) (-), produced by laser vaporization of a pure Au target using an ultrahigh purity helium carrier gas. The hydrogen source was shown to be from trace H impurities present in the bulk gold target. Carefully designed experiments using H(2)- and D(2)-seeded helium carrier gas were used to study the electronic structure of Au(2)H(-) and Au(2)D(-) using photoelectron spectroscopy and density functional calculations. Well-resolved photoelectron spectra with vibrational resolution were obtained for Au(2)H(-) and Au(2)D(-). Two isomers were observed both experimentally and theoretically. The ground state of Au(2)H(-) turned out to be linear with a terminal H atom [Au-Au-H](-) ((1)A(1),C(infinity v)), whereas a linear [Au-H-Au](-) ((1)A(1),D(infinity h)) structure with a bridging H atom was found to be a minor isomer 0.6 eV higher in energy. Calculated electron detachment energies for both isomers agree well with the experimental spectra, confirming their existence in the cluster beam. The observation and confirmation of H impurity in pure gold clusters and the 3.44 A Au-Au distance in the [Au-H-Au](-) isomer presented in the current work provide indirect experimental evidence that the anomalous 3.6 A Au-Au distances observed in gold nanowires is due to an "invisible" hydrogen impurity atom.

    This communication outlines a simple two-step approach of modification of 1 nm diameter Au nanoparticles using an aqueous solution of (1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphothio-ethanol) phospholipid (PL). Transmission electron microscopy as well as particle size analysis show that, as a result of PL reactions with Au particles, the initial Au nanoparticle size increases to 5 nm. Considering the size of the PL and their ability to form liposomes, 5 nm diameter spheres indicate that the PL bilayer was attached to the surface of Au particles and the PL-Au interactions are facilitated by the presence of thiol functionality. The change of surface electronic properties of PL-stabilized Au particles is manifested by the disappearance of the 217 and 290 nm absorbances due to 5d-6sp transitions in Au, which is likely attributed to the presence of S-H functionalities which increase the free electron density of the particle. As a consequence, two surface plasmons resulting from a collective oscillation of electrons in response to UV excitation disappear. PMID:15877336

    The presence of an enhanced hardness, that is a `Superhardness Effect, is found as a behavior parallel to the Supermodulus Effect in Au/Ni multilayer structures. The submicron thick Au/Ni coatings are prepared by magnetron sputter deposition. A microindenter is used to measure load as a function of indentation depth. An increase in hardness is measured as the Au/Ni layer pair spacing decreases. A local maximum in hardness occurs for samples with layer pairs consisting of 4-6 atomic planes of each metal component.

    In situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) studies of homoepitaxial electrodeposition on Au(1 1 1) from hydrochloric acid solution reveal an unusual deposit morphology in the potential regime of the Au surface reconstruction, where the deposited Au islands are separated by nanoscale grooves with preferred widths of 6 and 12 nm. The formation of these structures is attributed to a hindered coalescence of the islands, caused by elastic energy contributions of the reconstructed bottom of the grooves.

    Initial eccentricity and eccentricity fluctuations of the interaction volume created in relativistic collisions of deformed {sup 197}Au and {sup 238}U nuclei are studied using optical and Monte-Carlo (MC) Glauber simulations. It is found that the non-sphericity noticeably influences the average eccentricity in central collisions and eccentricity fluctuations are enhanced due to deformation. Quantitative results are obtained for Au+Au and U+U collisions at energy {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV.

    The effect of fluctuations of SCF on the baryon production in d+Au and Au+Au collisions at 200A GeV is studied in the framework of HIJING/BB v2.0 model. An increase of the string tension from kappa_0= 1 GeV/fm, to in medium mean values of 1.5 to 2.0 GeV/fm and 2.0 to 3.0 GeV/fm, for d+Au and Au+Au respectively, results in a consistent description of the observed nuclear modification factors R_dAu and R_AuAu(that relates (d)Au+Au and p+p colllisions) and point to the relevance of fluctuations of transient color fields. The differences between nuclear modification factors R_AuAu and R_CP (that relates central and peripheral collisions) are also discussed. The measurement of multi-strange (anti)hyperons (\\Xi, \\Omega) yields would provide a crucial test of the importance of SCF fluctuations at RHIC energies.

    Controlled crystallization of colloids from solution has been a goal of material scientists for decades. Recently, nucleic acid functionalized spherical Au nanoparticles (SNA-AuNPs) have been programmed to assemble in a wide variety of crystal structures. In this approach, the assembly is driven by Watson-Crick hybridization between DNAs coating the AuNPs. Here, we show that counterions can induce ordered assembly of SNA-AuNPs in bulk solutions, even in the absence of base pairing interactions. The electrostatics-driven assembly of spherical nucleic acid-Au nanoparticle conjugates (SNA-AuNPs) is probed as a function of counterion concentration and counterion valency [ +1 (Na+) or +2 (Ca2+) ] by in situ solution X-ray scattering. Assemblies of AuNPs capped with single-stranded (ss-) or double-stranded (ds-) DNA are examined. SAXS reveals disordered (gas-like) --> face-centered-cubic (FCC) --> glass-like phase transitions with increasing solution ionic strength. These studies demonstrate how non-base-pairing interactions can be tuned to create crystalline assemblies of SNA-AuNPs. The dependence of the inter-SNA-AuNP interactions on counterion valency and stiffness of the DNA corona will be discussed.

    Periodic density functional theory calculations were used to investigate relevant aspects of adsorption mechanisms of cysteine dimers in protonated form on Au(111) and Au(110) surfaces. The projected densities of states are explicitly discussed for all main chemical groups of cysteine, i.e. the amino group (NH2), the thiol group (SH) and the carboxylic group (COOH) to identify differences in adsorption mechanism. Special emphasis is put on the analysis of changes in the electronic structure of molecules adsorbed on Au(111) and Au(110) surfaces as well as the accompanying charge transfer mechanisms at molecule-substrate interaction.

    The average electromagnetic dipole response of levels in the quasicontinuum of Au,198197 has been measured using (3He,3He' ) and (d ,p ) reactions. The extracted ? -ray strength functions have been normalized according to three model assumptions for the nuclear spin distribution. An enhancement in the energy region E?=3.0 -6.5 MeV is observed for both isotopes. The E 1 component of such excess of strength is studied in detail for 198Au and is interpreted as the pygmy dipole resonance with an energy centroid of 5.9 (1 ) MeV and exhausts about 1 % of the total integrated strength. The pygmy dipole resonance is shown to have a significant impact on the calculated 197Au (n,? ) 198Au cross section.

    Au beam at the RHIC ramp in run 2014 is reviewed together with the run 2011 and run 2012. Observed bunch length and longitudinal emittance are compared with the IBS simulations. The IBS growth rate of the longitudinal emittance in run 2014 is similar to run 2011, and both are larger than run 2012. This is explained by the large transverse emittance at high intensity observed in run 2012, but not in run 2014. The big improvement of the AGS ramping in run 2014 might be related to this change. The importance of the injector intensity improvement in run 2014 is emphasized, which gives rise to the initial luminosity improvement of 50% in run 2014, compared with the previous Au-Au run 2011. In addition, a modified IBS model, which is calibrated using the RHIC Au runs from 9.8 GeV/n to 100 GeV/n, is presented and used in the study.

The measurements of pions and protons are reported up to p_T=6 GeV/c (5 GeV/c), and the measurements of kaons are reported up to p_T=4 GeV/c (3.5 GeV/c) in Au+Au (d+Au) collisions. In the intermediate p_T region, between 2--5 GeV/c, a significant enhancement of baryon to meson ratios compared to those measured in p+p collisions is observed. This enhancement is present in both Au+Au and d+Au collisions, and increases as the collisions become more central. We compare a class of peripheral Au+Au collisions with a class of central d+Au collisions which have a comparable number of participating nucleons and binary nucleon-nucleon collisions. The p_T dependent particle ratios for these classes display a remarkable similarity, which is then discussed.

    Heterostructured Au-Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) nanoparticles (nps) with Au-CIGS side-by-side and Au-core/CIGS-shell configurations have been synthesized in a controllable manner using seed mediated growth. Detailed microstructure analysis reveals that (112) planes in the tetragonal chalcopyrite CIGS serve as the predominant termination surfaces during single phase CIGS nanoparticle growth. Preferential nucleation of Au on such planes determines the Au-CIGS side-by-side configuration when the pre-synthesized CIGS nps are used as the seeds for further Au growth. Reversing the growth sequence by employing Au nano-seeds results in Au-core/CIGS-shell configuration, as determined by the non-preferential nucleation of CIGS on the spherical Au nanoparticle surface. The different morphological configurations of the heterostructures are found to modify the surface plasmon resonance of Au in the corresponding samples.Heterostructured Au-Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) nanoparticles (nps) with Au-CIGS side-by-side and Au-core/CIGS-shell configurations have been synthesized in a controllable manner using seed mediated growth.

    Thermal transport in a metallic multilayer on picosecond time scales is controlled by the electronic thermal conductivity (?e), the electronic interfacial thermal conductance (Gee), and electron-phonon coupling constant (g). We analyze heat transfer in a nanoscale Pt/Au bilayer using data obtained in pump-probe measurements and modeling using a transmission-line-equivalent circuit. For optical exciation of either the Pt or Au side of the bilayer, the majority of energy is deposited into the Pt phonons on a time scale of ?1 ps because gPt?gAu and Gee>gAuhAu, where hAu is the thickness of the Au layer. We determine g of the Au layer and set a lower bound on Gee of the Pt/Au interface: gAu = 2.2 ± 0.6 × 1016 W m-3 K-1 and Gee > 5 GW m-2 K-1.

    There is mounting theoretical evidence that flow anisotropies at midrapidity may turn out to be a more sensitive probe of the early pressure developed in central heavy ion reactions. In recent experiments at the AGS, we have studied the elliptic flow developed in near central Au + Au collisions at 2 and 4 AGeV. Early results from these experiments indicate

    Diffusion induced grain boundary migration was studied by employing Au-Cu and Au-Ag thin film specimens. The results support the conclusion that this phenomenon is widespread and that it can lead to boundary migration and bulk composition change under conditions where neither is expected. Two approaches were employed to study this phenomenon. In the first approach polycrystalline gold thin films were

    Following the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 (Run-10) Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) Au+Au run, RHIC experiment upgrades sought to improve detector capabilities. In turn, accelerator improvements were made to improve the luminosity available to the experiments for this run (Run-11). These improvements included: a redesign of the stochastic cooling systems for improved reliability; a relocation of 'common' RF cavities to

    Multifragment events resulting from peripheral Au + Au collisions at 35 MeV/nucleon are analysed in terms of critical behavior. The analysis of most of criticality signals proposed so far (conditional moments of charge distributions, Campi scatter plot, fluctuations of the size of the largest fragment, intermittency analysis) is consistent with the occurrence of a critical behavior of the system.

    Multifragment disintegrations, measured for central Au + Au collisions at E/A = 35 MeV, are analyzed with the Statistical Multifragmentation Model. Charge distributions, mean fragment energies, and two-fragment correlation functions are well reproduced by the statistical breakup of a large, diluted and thermalized system slightly above the multifragmentation threshold.

    Multifragment disintegration has been measured with a high efficiency detection system for the reaction $Au + Au$ at $E/A = 35\\ MeV$. From the event shape analysis and the comparison with the predictions of a many-body trajectories calculation the data, for central collisions, are compatible with a fast emission from a unique fragment source.

    Metal thermocompression bonding is a hermetic wafer-level packaging technology that facilitates vertical integration and shrinks the area used for device sealing. In this paper, Au-Au bonding at 350, 400 and 450 °C has been investigated, bonding wafers with 1 µm Au on top of 200 nm TiW. Test Si laminates with device sealing frames of 100, 200, and 400 µm in width were realized. Bond strengths measured by pull tests ranged from 8 to 102 MPa and showed that the bond strength increased with higher bonding temperatures and decreased with increasing frame width. Effects of eutectic reactions, grain growth in the Au film and stress relaxation causing buckles in the TiW film were most pronounced at 450 °C and negligible at 350 °C. Bond temperature below the Au-Si eutectic temperature 363 °C is recommended.

    Yields, correlation shapes, and mean transverse momenta pT of charged particles associated with intermediate- to high-pT trigger particles (2.5Au and Au + Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV are presented. For associated particles at higher pT?2.5 GeV/c, narrow correlation peaks are seen in d+ Au and Au + Au, indicating that the main production mechanism is jet fragmentation. At lower associated particle pT<2 GeV/c, a large enhancement of the near- (??~0) and away-side (??~?) associated yields is found, together with a strong broadening of the away-side azimuthal distributions in Au + Au collisions compared to d+ Au measurements, suggesting that other particle production mechanisms play a role. This is further supported by the observed significant softening of the away-side associated particle yield distribution at ??~? in central Au + Au collisions.

    The PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider has measured {omega} meson production via leptonic and hadronic decay channels in p + p, d + Au, Cu + Cu, and Au + Au collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV. The invariant transverse momentum spectra measured in different decay modes give consistent results. Measurements in the hadronic decay channel in Cu + Cu and Au + Au collisions show that {omega} production has a suppression pattern at high transverse momentum, similar to that of {pi}{sup 0} and {eta} in central collisions, but no suppression is observed in peripheral collisions. The nuclear modification factors, R{sub AA}, are consistent in Cu + Cu and Au + Au collisions at similar numbers of participant nucleons.

    The PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) has measured omega meson production via leptonic and hadronic decay channels in p+p, d+Au, Cu+Cu, and Au+Au collisions at sqrt(s_NN) = 200 GeV. The invariant transverse momentum spectra measured in different decay modes give consistent results. Measurements in the hadronic decay channel in Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions show that omega production has a suppression pattern at high transverse momentum, similar to that of pi^0 and eta in central collisions, but no suppression is observed in peripheral collisions. The nuclear modification factors, R_AA, are consistent in Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions at similar numbers of participant nucleons.

    A polycrystalline sample of GdAuCd was prepared by reaction of the elements in a sealed tantalum ampoule in an induction furnace. The structure was studied by X-ray powder and single-crystal diffraction: ZrNiAl type, P 6¯2m , a=770.1(2), c=396.0(1) pm, wR2=0.0493 for 252 F2 values and 14 variables. The structure contains two crystallographically different gold sites with tricapped trigonal prismatic coordination: [Au1Cd 3Gd 6] and [Au2Cd 6Gd 3]. Together the gold and cadmium atoms form a three-dimensional [AuCd] network in which the gadolinium atoms fill distorted hexagonal channels. The magnetic and electronic properties have been studied by means of AC and DC magnetic susceptibility measurements as well as 155Gd Mössbauer spectroscopy on powder samples. It was found that GdAuCd orders antiferromagnetically at TN=66.5 K.

    The surface chemistry of isocyanic acid, HNCO, and its dissociation product, NCO, was studied on clean, O-dosed and Ar ion bombarded Au(111) surfaces. The techniques used are high resolution energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS) and temperature-programmed desorption (TPD). The structure of Ar ion etched surface is explored by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). HNCO adsorbs molecularly on Au(111) surface at 100 K yielding strong losses at 1390, 2270 and 3230 cm- 1. The weakly adsorbed HNCO desorbs in two peaks characterized by Tp = 130 and 145 K. The dissociation of the chemisorbed HNCO occurs at 150 K to give NCO species characterized by a vibration at 2185 cm- 1. The dissociation process is facilitated by the presence of preadsorbed O and by defect sites on Au(111) produced by Ar ion bombardment. In the latter case the loss feature of NCO appeared at 2130 cm- 1. Isocyanate on Au(111) surface was found to be more stable than on the single crystal surfaces of Pt-group metals. Results are compared with those obtained on supported Au catalysts.

    The electron transport and magnetoresistance (MR) were investigated in high quality crystalline epitaxial Fe(001) and Au(001) films and exchange coupled Au/Fe/Au/Fe/GaAs(001) trilayer structures. Fits to the experimental data were based on the semiclassical Boltzmann equation, which incorporates the electronic properties obtained from first-principles local density functional calculations. The fits require a surprisingly high asymmetry for the spin dependent electron lifetimes in Fe, {tau}{sup {down_arrow}}/{tau}{sup {up_arrow}}=10 at room temperature. Despite the large atomic terraces at the Au/vacuum and Fe/GaAs interfaces the scattering at the outer interfaces was found to be diffuse. The origin of MR in Au/Fe/Au/Fe/GaAs(001) structures is due to electron channeling in the Au spacer layer. The measured MR is consistent with the diffusivity parameters s{sup {up_arrow}}=0.55, s{sup {down_arrow}}=0.77 at the metal{endash}metal interfaces. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.

  15. Desulfurization of Thiophene on Au/TiC(001): Au?C Interactions and Charge Polarization

    Photoemission and first-principles DF calculations were used to study the interaction of thiophene with TiC(001) and Au/TiC(001) surfaces. The adsorption strength of thiophene on TiC(001) is weak, and the molecule desorbs at temperatures below 200 K. The molecule binds to Ti centers of TiC(001) through its sulfur atom with negligible structural perturbations. In spite of the very poor desulfurization performance of TiC(001) or Au(111), a Au/TiC(001) system displays a hydrodesulfurization activity higher than that of conventional Ni/MoS{sub x} catalysts. The Au?TiC(001) interactions induce a polarization of electron density around Au which substantially increases the chemical reactivity of this metal. Au nanoparticles drastically increase the hydrodesulfurization activity of TiC(001) by enhancing the bonding energy of thiophene and by helping in the dissociation of H{sub 2} to produce the hydrogen necessary for the hydrogenolysis of C-S bonds and the removal of sulfur. H{sub 2} spontaneously dissociates on small two-dimensional clusters of gold in contact with TiC(001). On these systems, the adsorption energy of thiophene is 0.45-0.65 eV larger than that on TiC(001) or Au(111). Thiophene binds in a ?5 configuration with a large elongation ({approx}0.2 {angstrom}) of the C-S bonds.

    The very neutron deficient odd-odd nucleus Au172 was studied in reactions of 342 and 348 MeV Kr78 beams with an isotopically enriched Ru96 target. The ? decays previously reported for Au172 were confirmed and the decay chain extended down to Tm152 through the discovery of a new ?-decaying state in Re164 [E?=5623(10) keV; t1/2=864-110+150 ms; b?=3(1)%]. Fine structure in these ? decays of Au172 and Ir168 were identified. A new ?-decaying state was also observed and assigned as the ground state in Au172 [E?=6762(10) keV; t1/2=22-5+6 ms]. This decay chain was also correlated down to Tm152 through previously reported ? decays. Prompt ? rays from excited states in Au172 have been identified using the recoil-decay tagging technique. The partial level scheme constructed for Au172 indicates that it has an irregular structure. Possible configurations of the ?-decaying states in Au172 are discussed in terms of the systematics of nuclei in this region and total Routhian surface calculations.

    Transverse mass and rapidity distributions for charged pions, charged kaons, protons and antiprotons are reported for {radical}sNN = 200 GeV pp and Au+Au collisions at RHIC. The transverse mass distributions are rapidity independent within |y| < 0.5, consistent with a boost-invariant system in this rapidity interval. Spectral shapes and relative particle yields are similar in pp and peripheral Au+Au collisions and change smoothly to central Au+Au collisions. No centrality dependence was observed in the kaon and antiproton production rates relative to the pion production rate from medium-central to central collisions. Chemical and kinetic equilibrium model fits to our data reveal strong radial flow and relatively long duration from chemical to kinetic freeze-out in central Au+Au collisions. The chemical freeze-out temperature appears to be independent of initial conditions at RHIC energies.

    Azimuthal angular correlations of charged hadrons with respect to the axis of a reconstructed (trigger) jet in Au +Au and p +p collisions at ?sNN =200 GeV in STAR are presented. The trigger jet population in Au +Au collisions is biased toward jets that have not interacted with the medium, allowing easier matching of jet energies between Au +Au and p +p collisions while enhancing medium effects on the recoil jet. The associated hadron yield of the recoil jet is significantly suppressed at high transverse momentum (pTassoc) and enhanced at low pTassoc in 0%-20% central Au +Au collisions compared to p +p collisions, which is indicative of medium-induced parton energy loss in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions.

    There have been intense recent interests in the homogeneous catalytic chemistry of Au(I) complexes.1 Among the Au(I) molecules, the Au(CN)2- ion is the most stable and has been widely used in gold extraction back to ancient times. Although AuCN in the condensed phase has been studied, including solution phase vibrational spectroscopy2 and crystal structures,3 the free AuCN molecule has been studied only very recently by microwave spectroscopy.4 The important Au(CN)2- complex has not been observed and studied in the gas phase. Because of the relativistic effects,5 Au-containing molecules exhibit distinctly different properties among the coinage elements. To elucidate the nature of the Au-ligand binding, high-level ab initio calculations are needed due to the complicated electron correlation and relativistic effects.6-8 The structure and bonding of the AuCN molecule were first examined computationally by Frenking and co-workers.7 Recent high-precision calculations by Pyykkö and co-workers suggest multiple-bond characters between Au-C in AuCN because the Au-C bond length is only slightly longer than the sum of the triple bond covalent radii.

    STAR has measured forward pi^0 production in p+p and d+Au collisions at sqrt{s_{NN}}=200 GeV. The p+p yield generally agrees with NLO pQCD calculations. The d+Au yield is strongly suppressed at =4.0, well below shadowing expectations. Exploratory measurements of azimuthal correlations between forward pi^0 and mid-rapidity charged hadrons show a recoil peak in p+p that is suppressed in d+Au at low pion energy. These observations are qualitatively consistent with a saturation picture of the low-x gluon structure of heavy nuclei. Future measurements to elucidate the dynamics underlying these observations are also described.

    The first measurement of direct photons in Au+Au collisions at &surd;(sNN)=200 GeV is presented. The direct photon signal is extracted as a function of the Au+Au collision centrality and compared to next-to-leading order perturbative quantum chromodynamics calculations. The direct photon yield is shown to scale with the number of nucleon-nucleon collisions for all centralities.

    (Au-Ag)144(SR)60 alloy nanomolecules were synthesized and characterized by ESI mass spectrometry to atomic precision. The number of Ag atoms can be varied by changing the incoming metal ratio and plateaus at ~60. UV-vis data demonstrates that the electronic structure of the nanomolecules can be tuned by incorporation of silver atoms. Based on the proposed 3-shell structure of Au144(SR)60, we hypothesize that the Ag atoms are selectively incorporated in to the symmetry equivalent 60-atom shell--having Au12, Au42, Ag60 concentric shells with 30 -SR-Au-SR- protecting units.

    We report on an experimental and simulation campaign aimed at exploring the radiation response of nanoporous Au (np-Au) foams. We find different defect accumulation behavior by varying radiation dose-rate in ion-irradiated np-Au foams. Stacking fault tetrahedra are formed when np-Au foams are irradiated at high dose-rate, but they do not seem to be formed in np-Au at low dose-rate irradiation. A model is proposed to explain the dose-rate dependent defect accumulation based on these results.

  15. AU-FREDI - AUTONOMOUS FREQUENCY DOMAIN IDENTIFICATION

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Yam, Y.

    1994-01-01

    The Autonomous Frequency Domain Identification program, AU-FREDI, is a system of methods, algorithms and software that was developed for the identification of structural dynamic parameters and system transfer function characterization for control of large space platforms and flexible spacecraft. It was validated in the CALTECH/Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Large Spacecraft Control Laboratory. Due to the unique characteristics of this laboratory environment, and the environment-specific nature of many of the software's routines, AU-FREDI should be considered to be a collection of routines which can be modified and reassembled to suit system identification and control experiments on large flexible structures. The AU-FREDI software was originally designed to command plant excitation and handle subsequent input/output data transfer, and to conduct system identification based on the I/O data. Key features of the AU-FREDI methodology are as follows: 1. AU-FREDI has on-line digital filter design to support on-orbit optimal input design and data composition. 2. Data composition of experimental data in overlapping frequency bands overcomes finite actuator power constraints. 3. Recursive least squares sine-dwell estimation accurately handles digitized sinusoids and low frequency modes. 4. The system also includes automated estimation of model order using a product moment matrix. 5. A sample-data transfer function parametrization supports digital control design. 6. Minimum variance estimation is assured with a curve fitting algorithm with iterative reweighting. 7. Robust root solvers accurately factorize high order polynomials to determine frequency and damping estimates. 8. Output error characterization of model additive uncertainty supports robustness analysis. The research objectives associated with AU-FREDI were particularly useful in focusing the identification methodology for realistic on-orbit testing conditions. Rather than estimating the entire structure, as is typically done in ground structural testing, AU-FREDI identifies only the key transfer function parameters and uncertainty bounds that are necessary for on-line design and tuning of robust controllers. AU-FREDI's system identification algorithms are independent of the JPL-LSCL environment, and can easily be extracted and modified for use with input/output data files. The basic approach of AU-FREDI's system identification algorithms is to non-parametrically identify the sampled data in the frequency domain using either stochastic or sine-dwell input, and then to obtain a parametric model of the transfer function by curve-fitting techniques. A cross-spectral analysis of the output error is used to determine the additive uncertainty in the estimated transfer function. The nominal transfer function estimate and the estimate of the associated additive uncertainty can be used for robust control analysis and design. AU-FREDI's I/O data transfer routines are tailored to the environment of the CALTECH/ JPL-LSCL which included a special operating system to interface with the testbed. Input commands for a particular experiment (wideband, narrowband, or sine-dwell) were computed on-line and then issued to respective actuators by the operating system. The operating system also took measurements through displacement sensors and passed them back to the software for storage and off-line processing. In order to make use of AU-FREDI's I/O data transfer routines, a user would need to provide an operating system capable of overseeing such functions between the software and the experimental setup at hand. The program documentation contains information designed to support users in either providing such an operating system or modifying the system identification algorithms for use with input/output data files. It provides a history of the theoretical, algorithmic and software development efforts including operating system requirements and listings of some of the various special purpose subroutines which were developed and optimized for Lahey FORTRAN compilers on IBM PC-AT computers before th

    It is shown that a QCD based nuclear absorption model, with few parameters fixed to reproduce experimental $J/\\psi$ yield in 200 GeV pp/pA and 450 GeV pA collisions can explain the preliminary PHENIX data on the centrality dependence of $J/\\psi$ suppression in Cu+Cu collisions at RHIC energy, $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=200 GeV. However, the model does not give satisfactory description to the preliminary PHENIX data on the centrality dependence of $J/\\psi$ suppression in Au+Au collisions. The analysis suggest that in Au+Au collisions, $J/\\psi$ are suppressed in a medium unlike the medium produced in SPS energy nuclear collisions or in RHIC energy Cu+Cu collisions.

    We study the charge-dependent azimuthal correlations in relativistic heavy ion collisions, as motivated by the search for the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) and the investigation of related background contributions. In particular we aim to understand how these correlations induced by various proposed effects evolve from collisions with AuAu system to that with UU system. To do that, we quantify the generation of magnetic field in UU collisions at RHIC energy and its azimuthal correlation with the matter geometry using event-by-event simulations. Taking the experimental data for charge-dependent azimuthal correlations from AuAu collisions and extrapolating to UU with reasonable assumptions, we examine the resulting correlations to be expected in UU collisions and compare them with recent STAR measurements. Based on such analysis we discuss the viability for explaining the data with a combination of the CME-like and flow-induced contributions.

    In this work, an innovated Si 3N 4 as an out-diffusion barrier layer to Au/Zn/Au contact system for p-type InP has been proposed. Before the contacts were annealed, Si 3N 4 layer was deposited on the Au(200Å)/Zn(700Å)/Au(200Å), then the Si 3N 4 was removed by HF and a 2000A layer of pure gold was deposited to facilitate wire bonding. The specific contact resistance dropped to a minimum value of 6×10 -7 ? • cm2 (for an acceptor concentration of about 3×10 18 cm -3) and the contact became perfectly Ohmic. Besides, Si 3N 4 layer is an excellent passivation layer and antireflection coating in InP/InGaAs/InP (p-i-n) photodiodes.

Over the measured range in centrality, large relative fluctuations of 40--50% are found. The elliptic flow fluctuations are well described as being proportional to fluctuations in the shape of the initial collision region, as estimated event-by-event with the participant eccentricity using Glauber Monte Carlo.

    PHENIX has measured the two particle azimuth correlation in Au + Au at {radical}(s) = 200 GeV. Jet shape and yield at the away side are found to be strongly modified at intermediate and low pT, and the modifications vary dramatically with pT and centrality. At high pT, away side jet peak reappears but the yield is suppressed. We discuss the possible physics pictures leading to these complicated modifications.

    We present ? ? correlation measurements in heavy-ion collisions for Au +Au collisions at ?{sN N }=200 GeV using the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider. The Lednický-Lyuboshitz analytical model has been used to fit the data to obtain a source size, a scattering length and an effective range. Implications of the measurement of the ? ? correlation function and interaction parameters for dihyperon searches are discussed.

    The self-assembled fabrication of nanostructure, a dreaming approach in the area of fabrication engineering, is the ultimate goal of this research. A finding was proved through previous research that the size of the self-assembled gold nanoparticles could be controlled with the mole ratio between AuCl4- and thiol. In this study, the moles of Au were fixed, only the moles of thiol were adjusted. Five different mole ratios of Au/S with their effect on size uniformity were investigated. The mole ratios were 1:1/16, 1:1/8, 1:1, 1:8, 1:16, respectively. The size distributions of the gold nanoparticles were analyzed by Mac-View analysis software. HR-TEM was used to derive images of self-assembled gold nanoparticles. The result reached was also the higher the mole ratio between AuCl4- and thiol the bigger the self-assembled gold nanoparticles. Under the condition of moles of Au fixed, the most homogeneous nanoparticles in size distribution derived with the mole ratio of 1:1/8 between AuCl4- and thiol. The obtained nanoparticles could be used, for example, in uniform surface nanofabrication, leading to the fabrication of ordered array of quantum dots.

    Polymers either serve as shielding or capping agents to restrict the nanoparticle size. This study demonstrates the polymer depositions and their effects in synthesis and sharp stabilization of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and to develop gold/silver nanoalloys (Au/Ag nanoalloys). Effects of different polymers are tested to justify their role in synthesis and stability of phloroglucinol (PG) coated AuNPs and Au/Ag nanoalloys. Cationic and anionic i.e. [Polydiallyldimethylammonium](+) (PDDA), [Polyethyleneimine](+) (PEI), [Polystyrene sulfonate](2-) (PSS) and neutral polymer Polychlorotriflouroethylene (PCTFE) produce praiseworthy stable AuNPs and Au/Ag nanoalloy. To prove polymer effects characterization protocols including UV-vis, Fluorescence (PL), IR and AFM imaging are performed to fully investigate the mechanism and size characteristics of these nanoparticles/nanoalloys. In this study sharp size controlling/sheilding effects were observed particularly with cationic polymers simply through the favorable electrostatic interactions with the terminal ends of PG Potent/significant detection of doxorubicin (DOX, an antileukemic agent) via fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between PEI shielded AuNPs (AuNPEI) and DOX was achieved upto 10 pM level, while PDDA protected AuNPs facilitated the detection of ascorbic acid based on fluorescence enhancement effects in wide range (10-200 nM) and with detection limit of 200 pM. Similarly sensing performance of PEI stabilized Au/Ag nanoalloys on addition of halides (Cl(-), Br(-), I(-)) is evaluated through red shifted SPR along with continuous increase in absorbance and also through AFM. Moreover the addition of halide ions also helped the regeneration of AuNPs by taking away silver from the Au/Ag nanoalloys enabling their detections upto subnanomolar levels. PMID:24121208

    The PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) has performed systematic measurements of phi meson production in the K+K- decay channel at midrapidity in p+p, d+Au, Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions at sqrt(S_NN)=200 GeV. Results are presented on the phi invariant yield and the nuclear modification factor R_AA for Au+Au and Cu+Cu, and R_dA for d+Au collisions, studied as a function of transverse momentum (1Au+Au collisions, the R_AA of phi exhibits a suppression relative to expectations from binary scaled p+p results. The amount of suppression is smaller than that of the neutral pion and the eta meson in the intermediate p_T range (2--5 GeV/c); whereas at higher p_T the phi, pi^0, and eta show similar suppression. The baryon (protons and anti-protons) excess observed in central Au+Au collisions at intermediate p_T is not observed for the phi meson despite the similar mass of the proton and the phi. This suggests that the excess is linked to the number of constituent quarks rather than the hadron mass. The difference gradually disappears with decreasing centrality and for peripheral collisions the R_AA values for both particles are consistent with binary scaling. Cu+Cu collisions show the same yield and suppression as Au+Au collisions for the same number of N_part. The R_dA of phi shows no evidence for cold nuclear effects within uncertainties.

    The new phase K{sub 12}Au{sub 21}Sn{sub 4} has been synthesized by direct reaction of the elements at elevated temperatures. Single crystal X-ray diffraction established its orthorhombic structure, space group Pmmn (No. 59), a = 12.162(2); b = 18.058(4); c = 8.657(2) {angstrom}, V = 1901.3(7) {angstrom}{sup 3}, and Z = 2. The structure consists of infinite puckered sheets of vertex-sharing gold tetrahedra (Au{sub 20}) that are tied together by thin layers of alternating four-bonded-Sn and -Au atoms (AuSn{sub 4}). Remarkably, the dense but electron-poorer blocks of Au tetrahedra coexist with more open and saturated Au-Sn layers, which are fragments of a zinc blende type structure that maximize tetrahedral heteroatomic bonding outside of the network of gold tetrahedra. LMTO band structure calculations reveal metallic properties and a pseudogap at 256 valence electrons per formula unit, only three electrons fewer than in the title compound and at a point at which strong Au-Sn bonding is optimized. Additionally, the tight coordination of the Au framework atoms by K plays an important bonding role: each Au tetrahedra has 10 K neighbors and each K atom has 8-12 Au contacts. The appreciably different role of the p element Sn in this structure from that in the triel members in K{sub 3}Au{sub 5}In and Rb{sub 2}Au{sub 3}Tl appears to arise from its higher electron count which leads to better p-bonding (valence electron concentrations = 1.32 versus 1.22).

    The unique properties of gold especially in low temperature CO oxidation have been ascribed to a combination of various effects. In particular, particle sizes below a few nm and specific particle-support interactions have been shown to play important roles. On the contrary, recent reports revealed that monolithic nanoporous gold (npAu) prepared by leaching a less noble metal, such as Ag, out of the corresponding alloy can also exhibit remarkably high catalytic activity for CO oxidation, even though no support is present. Therefore, it was claimed to be a pure and unsupported gold catalyst. We investigated npAu with respect to its morphology, surface composition and catalytic properties. In particular, we studied the reaction kinetics for low temperature CO oxidation in detail taking mass transport limitation due to the porous structure of the material into account. Our results reveal that Ag, even if removed almost completely from the bulk, segregates to the surface resulting in surface concentrations of up to 10 at%. Our data suggest that this Ag plays a significant role in activation of molecular oxygen. Therefore, npAu should be considered as a bimetallic catalyst rather than a pure Au catalyst.

    The surface and grain boundary resistivities of polycrystalline Au films are determined without any adjustable parameters by comparing the changes in residual resistivity and average grain size before and after annealing. The measured resistivity data point to a linear dependence of the surface roughness on the average grain size which suggests a self-similar scaling behavior.

    The engineering of cavity void metallic arrays allows to vary the plasmon-polariton mode energies from the near infrared to the ultraviolet through the tuning of the void height and diameter, and the selection of the appropriate material. Typically Au nanocavity substrates can be grown with better reproducibility, homogeneity, and stability, while Ag structures display significantly larger SERS enhancements. To exploit these two apparently excluding aspects, quality and enhancement, we report a detailed study of 500 nm Au-nanocavity templates modified by the controlled electrochemical deposition of 100 Ag layers, a thickness similar to the visible light skin-depth of bulk Ag. The SERS amplification of the ordered cavity-arrays is determined using 4-mercaptopyridine as a non-electronic resonant molecular probe. The ultrathin Ag layer modification of the Au substrates results in a strong amplification of the SERS signal both in the red and the green part of the spectrum, and in a spectral shift of the Raman resonance scans. These observations are assigned to Ag-induced changes in the plasmon-polariton response of the nanostructure. The reported results provide a general platform for the preparation of renewable SERS-active substrates that combine the durability and higher quality of Au nanotemplates, with the enhanced SERS amplification factors of Ag.

    Fractured basement, one of the most important reservoirs of Zeit Bay field, contains nearly one-third of oil in place of the field. The flow rates per well vary from 700 to 9,000 BOPD. Due to its well-established production potential, 60% of the wells for the development of the field were drilled down to basement. The Zeit Bay basement consist of granitic rocks of pegmatitic to coarse porphyritic texture and has equal proportions of alkali feldspars. Dykes of various compositions are present, traversing the granite at different intervals. Dykes include aplite, microsyenite, diabase and lamprophyre. The last two pertain to the post-granitic dykes of later Proterozoic age. The main granitic luton is related to one of the final stages of the tectonic-magmatic cycle of the Arabo-Nubian sheild. The Zeit Bay area was a significant paleohigh until the Miocene, hence its structural picture is very complicated due to the impact of different tectonic movements from the late Precambrian to Cenozoic. The resulting structural elements were carefully investigated and statistically analyzed to decipher the influence of various tectonic events. The presence of high porosity in some intervals and low porosity in others could be tied to the presence of new fractures and the nature of cementing minerals. The relation of mineralized fractures and their depths lead to zonation of porous layers in the granitic pluton. Diagenetic processes on the granitic body and the alternation/resedimentation of the diagenetic products controlled the magnitude and amplitude of the porosity layers.

    Enzyme immobilization is one of the key factors in constructing high-performance enzyme biosensors and biofuel cells (BFCs). Herein, we propose a new protocol for efficient immobilization of a glycoprotein enzyme based on the interaction of the 1, 2- or 1, 3-diols in the glycoprotein with a boronic acid functionalized monomer. Briefly, casting a mixture of glucose oxidase (GOx) and anilineboronic acid (ABA) followed by a NaAuCl(4) solution to an Au-plated Au electrode surface yielded a GOx-poly(ABA) (PABA)-gold nanoparticle (Au(nano)) bionanocomposite, and chitosan (CS) was then cast and air-dried. In the present protocol, the small-sized Au(nano) or Au subnanostructures can form near/on the enzyme molecule, which greatly promotes the electron transfer of enzymatic reaction and enhances the amperometric responses. The thus-prepared CS/GOx-PABA-Au(nano)/Au-plated Au electrode worked well in the first-/second generation biosensing modes and as a bioanode in a monopolar biofuel cell, with analytical or cell-power performance superior to those of most analogues hitherto reported.

    Decreasing the core size is one of the best ways to study the evolution from Au(I) complexes into Au nanoclusters. Toward this goal, we successfully synthesized the [Au18(SC6H11)14] nanocluster using the [Au18(SG)14] (SG=L-glutathione) nanocluster as the starting material to react with cyclohexylthiol, and determined the X-ray structure of the cyclohexylthiol-protected [Au18(C6H11S)14] nanocluster. The [Au18(SR)14] cluster has a Au9 bi-octahedral kernel (or inner core). This Au9 inner core is built by two octahedral Au6 cores sharing one triangular face. One transitional gold atom is found in the Au9 core, which can also be considered as part of the Au4(SR)5 staple motif. These findings offer new insight in terms of understanding the evolution from [Au(I)(SR)] complexes into Au nanoclusters. PMID:25620108

    A new aromatic thiolate protected gold nanomolecule Au99(SPh)42 has been synthesized by reacting the highly stable Au144(SCH2CH2Ph)60 with thiophenol, HSPh. The ubiquitous Au144(SR)60 is known for its high stability even at elevated temperature and in the presence of excess thiol. This report demonstrates for the first time the reactivity of the Au144(SCH2CH2Ph)60 with thiophenol to form a different 99-Au atom species. The resulting Au99(SPh)42 compound, however, is unreactive and highly stable in the presence of excess aromatic thiol. The molecular formula of the title compound is determined by high resolution electrospray mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and confirmed by the preparation of the 99-atom nanomolecule using two ligands, namely, Au99(SPh)42 and Au99(SPh-OMe)42. This mass spectrometry study is an unprecedented advance in nanoparticle reaction monitoring, in studying the 144-atom to 99-atom size evolution at such high m/z (?12k) and resolution. The optical and electrochemical properties of Au99(SPh)42 are reported. Other substituents on the phenyl group, HS-Ph-X, where X = -F, -CH3, -OCH3, also show the Au144 to Au99 core size conversion, suggesting minimal electronic effects for these substituents. Control experiments were conducted by reacting Au144(SCH2CH2Ph)60 with HS-(CH2)n-Ph (where n = 1 and 2), bulky ligands like adamantanethiol and cyclohexanethiol. It was observed that conversion of Au144 to Au99 occurs only when the phenyl group is directly attached to the thiol, suggesting that the formation of a 99-atom species is largely influenced by aromaticity of the ligand and less so on the bulkiness of the ligand.

    Based on the observation of the long-lived isotopes 261Rg and 265Rg (Z = 111, t(1/2) >= 10^(8) y) in natural Au, an experiment was performed to enrich Rg in 99.999% Au. 16 mg of Au were heated in vacuum for two weeks at a temperature of 1127 deg. C (63 deg. C above the melting point of Au). The content of 197Au and 261Rg in the residue was studied with high resolution inductively coupled plasma-sector field mass spectrometry (ICP-SFMS). The residue of Au was 3x10^(-6) of its original quantity. The recovery of Rg was a few percent. The abundance of Rg compared to Au in the enriched solution was about 2x10^(-6), which is a three to four orders of magnitude enrichment. It is concluded that the evaporation rate of Rg from an Au matrix in vacuum at 63 deg. C above the Au melting point is lower than that of Au. This experiment reinforces our first observation of Rg in a terrestrial material.

    The region of the Au-Zn phase diagram encompassing ?-brass-type phases has been studied experimentally from 45 to 85 atom % Zn. The ? phases were obtained directly from the pure elements by heating to 680 °C in evacuated silica tubes, followed by annealing at 300 °C. Powder X-ray and single-crystal diffraction studies show that ?-"Au(5)Zn(8)" phases adopt a rhombohedrally distorted Cr(5)Al(8) structure type rather than the cubic Cu(5)Zn(8) type. The refined compositions from two single crystals extracted from the Zn- and Au-rich loadings are Au(4.27(3))Zn(8.26(3))?(0.47) (I) and Au(4.58(3))Zn(8.12(3))?(0.3) (II), respectively (? = vacancy). These (I and II) refinements indicated both nonstatistical mixing of Au and Zn atoms as well as partially ordered vacancy distributions. The structures of these ? phases were solved in the acentric space group R3m (No. 160, Z = 6), and the observed lattice parameters from powder patterns were found to be a = 13.1029(6) and 13.1345(8) Å and c = 8.0410(4) and 8.1103(6) Å for crystals I and II, respectively. According to single-crystal refinements, the vacancies were found on the outer tetrahedron (OT) and octahedron (OH) of the 26-atom cluster. Single-crystal structural refinement clearly showed that the vacancy content per unit cell increases with increasing Zn, or valence-electron concentration. Electronic structure calculations, using the tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbital method with the atomic-sphere approximation (TB-LMTO-ASA) method, indicated the presence of a well-pronounced pseudogap at the Fermi level for "Au(5)Zn(8)" as the representative composition, an outcome that is consistent with the Hume-Rothery interpretation of ? brass.

    Au-CdTe and Ag/Au-CdTe assembles were firstly investigated through the static interaction between positively charged cysteamine-stabilized CdTe quantum dots (QDs) and negatively charged Au or core/shell Ag/Au nano-particles (NCs). The CdTe QDs synthesized in aqueous solution were capped with cysteamine which endowed them positive charges on the surface. Both Au and Ag/Au NCs were prepared through reducing precursors with gallic acid obtained from the hydrolysis of natural plant poly-phenols and favored negative charges on the surface of NCs. The fluorescence spectra of CdTe QDs exhibited strong quenching with the increase of added Au or Ag/Au NCs. Railey resonance scattering spectra of Au or Ag/Au NCs increased firstly and decreased latter with the concentration of CdTe QDs, accompanied with the solution color changing from red to purple and colorless at last. Experimental results on the effects of gallic acid, chloroauric acid tetrahydrate and other reagents demonstrated the static interaction occurred between QDs and NCs. This finding reveals the possibilities to design and control optical process and electromagnetic coupling in hybrid structures.

    A facile method has been developed to synthesize Au/Pd core-shell nanoparticles via galvanic replacement of Cu by Pd on hollow Au nanospheres. The unique nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, and electrochemical measurements. When the concentration of the Au solution was decreased, grain size of the polycrystalline hollow Au nanospheres was reduced, and the structures became highly porous. After the Pd shell formed on these Au nanospheres, the morphology and structure of the Au/Pd nanoparticles varied and hence significantly affected the catalytic properties. The Au/Pd nanoparticles synthesized with reduced Au concentrations showed higher formic acid oxidation activity (0.93 mA cm-2 at 0.3 V) than the commercial Pd black (0.85 mA cm-2 at 0.3 V), suggesting a promising candidate as fuel cell catalysts. In addition, the Au/Pd nanoparticles displayed lower CO-stripping potential, improved stability, and higher durability compared to the Pd black due to their unique core-shell structures tuned by Au core morphologies.

    We report results of ab initio pseudopotential calculations on the nanocoating of gold on an icosahedral Al13 cluster and the findings of icosahedrally symmetric endohedral Al@Al12Au20- and empty cage Al12Au202- compound fullerenes formed of metal atoms. Twelve Al atoms cap the pentagonal faces of a dodecahedral Au20 cage in which each Au atom has three Al atoms and three Au atoms as nearest neighbors. Mixing of Al13 and Au20 magic clusters leads to a large heat of formation of 0.55 eV/atom and high stability of the Al@Al12Au20 compound fullerene. The binding energies of Al12Au20 and Al@Al12Au20 are 3.017 and 3.007 eV/atom, respectively, which are much larger than 2.457 eV/atom for Au32 fullerene, leading to the possibility of their high abundance.

    The contact spreading phenomenon observed when small area Au contacts on InP are annealed at temperatures above about 400 C was investigated. It was found that the rapid lateral expansion of the contact metallization which consumes large quantities of InP during growth is closely related to the third stage in the series of solid state reactions that occur between InP and Au, i.e., to the Au3In-to-Au9In4 transition. Detailed descriptions are presented of both the spreading process and the Au3In-to-Au9In4 transition along with arguments that the two processes are manifestations of the same basic phenomenon.

    2005-08-15

    The geometric substructure of the particle-emitting source has been characterized via two-particle interferometry by the STAR collaboration for all energies and colliding systems at RHIC. We present systematic studies of charged pion interferometry. The collective nature of the source is revealed through the m{sub T} dependence of HBT radii for all particle types. Preliminary results suggest a scaling in the pion HBT radii with overall system size, as central Au+Au collisions are compared to peripheral collisions as well as with Cu+Cu and even with d+Au and p+p collisions, naively suggesting comparable flow strength in all systems. To probe this issue in greater detail, multidimensional correlation functions are studied using a spherical decomposition method. This allows clear identification of source anisotropy and, for the light systems, the presence of significant long-range non-femtoscopic correlations.

    We report our simulations on the profile of the electric field in semi insulating CdTe and CdZnTe with Au contacts under radiation flux. The type of the space charge and electric field distribution in the Au/CdTe/Au structure is at high fluxes result of a combined influence of charge formed due to band bending at the electrodes and from photo generated carriers, which are trapped at deep levels. Simultaneous solution of drift-diffusion and Poisson equations is used for the calculation. We show, that the space charge originating from trapped photo-carriers starts to dominate at fluxes 10{sup 15}-10{sup 16}cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}, when the influence of contacts starts to be negligible.

    Prolonged reorganization behaviour of mono-, di-, tri- and multi-layer films of Au nanoparticles prepared by Langmuir-Blodgett method on hydrophobic Si(001) substrates have been studied by using X-ray scattering techniques. Out-of-plane study shows that although at the initial stage the reorganization occurs through the compaction of the films keeping the layered structure unchanged but finally all layered structures modify to monolayer structure. Due to this reorganization the Au density increases within the nanometer thick films. In-plane study shows that inside the reorganized films Au nanoparticles are distributed randomly and the particle size modifies as the metallic core of Au nanoparticles coalesces.

    We develop an atomic-scale model for an ordered incommensurate gold sulfide (AuS) adlayer which has previously been demonstrated to exist on the Au(111) surface, following sulfur deposition and annealing to 450 K. Our model reproduces experimental scanning tunneling microscopy images. Using state-of-the-art Wannier-function-based techniques, we analyze the nature of bonding in this structure and provide an interpretation of the unusual stoichiometry of the gold sulfide layer. The proposed structure and its chemistry have implications for related S-Au interfaces, as in those involved in self-assembled monolayers of thiols on Au substrates. PMID:17867766

    A 23-gold-atom nanocluster was prepared by NaBH4 -mediated reduction of a solution of PhC?CAu and Ph3 PAuSbF6 in CH2 Cl2 . The cluster composition was determined to be [Au23 (PhC?C)9 (Ph3 P)6 ](2+) and single-crystal X-ray diffraction revealed that the cluster has an unprecedented Au17 kernel protected by three PhC2 -Au-C2 (Ph)-Au-C2 Ph motifs and six Ph3 P groups. The Au17 ?core can be viewed as the fusion of two Au10 ?units sharing a Au3 ?triangle. Electronic structure analysis from DFT calculations suggests that the stability of this unusual 12-electron cluster is a result of the splitting of the superatomic 1D orbitals under D3h ?symmetry of the Au17 ?kernel. The discovery and determination of the structure of the Au23 ?cluster demonstrates the versatility of the alkynyl ligand in leading to the formation of new cluster compounds. PMID:25808199

Au-ZnO nanocomposite films were prepared by atom beam cosputtering and were annealed from 200to600°C in Ar. A regular redshift ˜110nm (from 505to615nm) in LSPR peak with increase in annealing temperature up to 600°C is observed. Transmission electron microscopy results confirm the formation of Au nanoparticles supported by ZnO nanorods at annealing temperature of 600°C.

    Nous presentons une etude des fluctuations magnetiques de la phase normale de l'oxyde de cuivre supraconducteur La_{2-x}Sr _{x}CuO_4 . Le compose est modelise par le Hamiltonien de Hubbard bidimensionnel avec un terme de saut vers les deuxiemes voisins (modele tt'U). Le modele est etudie en utilisant l'approximation de la GRPA (Generalized Random Phase Approximation) et en incluant les effets de la renormalisation de l'interaction de Hubbard par les diagrammes de Brueckner-Kanamori. Dans l'approche presentee dans ce travail, les maximums du facteur de structure magnetique observes par les experiences de diffusion de neutrons sont associes aux anomalies 2k _{F} de reseau du facteur de structure des gaz d'electrons bidimensionnels sans interaction. Ces anomalies proviennent de la diffusion entre particules situees a des points de la surface de Fermi ou les vitesses de Fermi sont tangentes, et conduisent a des divergences dont la nature depend de la geometrie de la surface de Fermi au voisinage de ces points. Ces resultats sont ensuite appliques au modele tt'U, dont le modele de Hubbard usuel tU est un cas particulier. Dans la majorite des cas, les interactions ne determinent pas la position des maximums du facteur de structure. Le role de l'interaction est d'augmenter l'intensite des structures du facteur de structure magnetique associees a l'instabilite magnetique du systeme. Ces structures sont souvent deja presentes dans la partie imaginaire de la susceptibilite sans interaction. Le rapport d'intensite entre les maximums absolus et les autres structures du facteur de structure magnetique permet de determiner le rapport U_ {rn}/U_{c} qui mesure la proximite d'une instabilite magnetique. Le diagramme de phase est ensuite etudie afin de delimiter la plage de validite de l'approximation. Apres avoir discute des modes collectifs et de l'effet d'une partie imaginaire non-nulle de la self-energie, l'origine de l'echelle d'energie des fluctuations magnetiques est examinee. Il est ensuite demontre que le modele a trois bandes predit les memes resultats pour la position des structures du facteur de structure magnetique que le modele a une bande, dans la limite ou l'hybridation des orbitales des atomes d'oxygene des plans Cu-O_2 et l'amplitude de sauts vers les seconds voisins sont nulles. Il est de plus constate que l'effet de l'hybridation des orbitales des atomes d'oxygene est bien modelise par le terme de saut vers les seconds voisins. Meme si ils decrivent correctement le comportement qualitatif des maximums du facteur de structure magnetique, les modeles a trois bandes et a une bande ne permettent pas d'obtenir une position de ces structures conforme avec les mesures experimentales, si on suppose que la bande est rigide, c'est-a-dire que les parametres du Hamiltonien sont independants de la concentration de strontium. Ceci peut etre cause par la dependance des parametres du Hamiltonien sur la concentration de strontium. Finalement, les resultats sont compares avec les experiences de diffusion de neutrons et les autres theories, en particulier celles de Littlewood et al. (1993) et de Q. Si et al. (1993). La comparaison avec les resultats experimentaux pour le compose de lanthane suggere que le liquide de Fermi possede une surface de Fermi disjointe, et qu'il est situe pres d'une instabilite magnetique incommensurable.

    We report results of our experimental and theoretical studies on the Au concentration profile of Cu3Au(111) during oxidation by a hyperthermal O2 molecular beam at room temperature, using X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS), in conjunction with synchrotron radiation (SR), and density functional theory (DFT). Before O2 exposure, we observe strong Au segregation to the top layer, i.e., Au surface enrichment of the clean surface. We also observe a gradual Cu surface enrichment, and Au enrichment of the second and third (subsurface) layers, with increasing O coverage. Complete Cu segregation to the surface occurs at 0.5 ML O surface coverage. The Au-rich second and third layers of the oxidized surface demonstrate the protective layer formation against oxidation deeper into the bulk. PMID:24434902

    We report the first measurement of charmed-hadron (D0) production via the hadronic decay channel (D0?K-+?+) in Au +Au collisions at ?sNN =200 GeV with the STAR experiment. The charm production cross section per nucleon-nucleon collision at midrapidity scales with the number of binary collisions, Nbin, from p +p to central Au +Au collisions. The D0 meson yields in central Au +Au collisions are strongly suppressed compared to those in p+p scaled by Nbin, for transverse momenta pT>3 GeV /c, demonstrating significant energy loss of charm quarks in the hot and dense medium. An enhancement at intermediate pT is also observed. Model calculations including strong charm-medium interactions and coalescence hadronization describe our measurements.

    The discovery of the unique catalytic effects of gold nanoparticles on oxide substrates has stimulated a flurry of research into the structures and properties of free gold nanoclusters, which may hold the key to elucidating the catalytic mechanisms of supported gold clusters. One of the most remarkable results has been the discovery of planar gold cluster anions (Aun_) of up to twelve gold atoms and the 2D to 3D transition for clusters with n larger than 12. Among larger gold clusters, Au20 has been found to be a perfect tetrahedron. A more recent study of the structures of Aun_ cluster anions in the medium size range (n=15–19) has shown that clusters with n=16–18 possess unprecedented empty cage structures. In particular, the Au16_ cluster anion has an interesting tetrahedral structure with an inner diameter of about 5.5 0 and can be compared to the fullerenes (buckyballs). Although Au32 was first suggested to be a “24- carat golden fullerene”, subsequent studies showed that the Au32_ ion is in fact a low-symmetry compact 3D structure. Other larger gold cage clusters have also been proposed computationally, but none has been observed or is expected to be the global minimum. The cage structures of the cluster anions Au16_ and Au17_ have recently been confirmed by electron diffraction and thus they are the first experimentally confirmed and the smallest possible gold cages. The large empty space inside these cage clusters immediately suggested that they can be doped with a foreign atom to produce a new class of endohedral gold cages analogous to endohedral fullerenes.

    Core/shell nanoparticles of Pd/Au and Pd/Au/FePt were synthesized with palladium (5 nm diameter), a gold shell (1-2 nm), and a FePt shell (2 nm). The synthetic control allowed the Pd/Au catalytic properties to be tuned by the shell thickness. The synthesis provides an indication for future development of multicomponent nanoparticles for advanced catalytic applications.

    The transverse momentum distribution of the direct photons measured by the PHENIX collaboration in $Au + Au$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV/A has been analyzed. It has been shown that the data can be reproduced reasonably well assuming a deconfined state of thermalized quarks and gluons with initial temperature more than the transition temperature for deconfinement inferred from lattice QCD. The value of the initial temperature depends on the equation of state of the evolving matter. The sensitivities of the results on various input parameters have been studied. The effects of the modifications of hadronic properties at non-zero temperature have been discussed.

    Using charged-particle-exclusive measurements of Au+Au collisions in the Bevalac's EOS time projection chamber, we demonstrate the advantages of an alternative representation of the squeeze-out phenomenon where the speed of collective expansion is slowest in the plane of the reaction, and is modulated sinusoidally according to fragment azimuth relative to this plane. This simpler representation facilitates a highly comprehensive description of light fragment spectra and the three main categories of collective motion: sideward flow, squeeze-out, and radial expansion.

    The ratio of the shear viscosity (?) to entropy density (s) for the intermediate energy heavy-ion collisions has been calculated by using the Green-Kubo method in the framework of the quantum molecular dynamics model. The theoretical curve of ?/s as a function of the incident energy for the head-on Au + Au collisions displays that a minimum region of ?/s has been approached at higher incident energies, where the minimum ?/s value is about 7 times Kovtun-Son-Starinets (KSS) bound (1/4?). We argue that the onset of minimum ?/s region at higher incident energies corresponds to the nuclear liquid gas phase transition in nuclear multifragmentation.

    We present the first preliminary results on the production of hadrons with strangeness content (K+, K-, Ks0 , ? and ?) in Au + Au collisions at 1.23 A GeV incident energy measured with HADES. At the corresponding center of mass energy of ?{ s} = 2.4 GeV all hadrons carrying strangeness are produced below their free nucleon-nucleon threshold. While the K- /K+ ratio nicely fits the trend observed at higher energies, we find a strong rise of the ? /K- ratio. The presented particle ratios are compared to a statistical model fit and put into the context of previously obtained systematics on strangeness production.

    We present a systematic study of elliptic flow as a function of centrality, pseudorapidity, transverse momentum and energy for Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions from the PHOBOS experiment. New data on elliptic flow in Cu+Cu collisions at 22.4 GeV are shown. Elliptic flow scaled by participant eccentricity is found to be similar for both systems when collisions with the same number of participants or the same average area density are compared. This similarity is observed over a wide range in pseudorapidity and transverse momentum, indicating that participant eccentricity is the relevant quantity for generating the azimuthal asymmetry leading to the observed elliptic flow.

    Using the relativistic transport model (ART), we predict the energy dependence of the stopping power, maximum baryon and energy densities, the population of resonance matter as well as the strength of the transverse and radial flow for central Au+Au reactions at beam momentum from 2 to 12 GeV/c available at Brookhaven's AGS. The maximum baryon and energy densities are further compared to the predictions of relativistic hydrodynamics assuming the formation of shock waves. We also discuss the Fermi-Landau scaling of the pion multiplicity in these reactions.

    Proton fluxes recorded in the energy range ˜ 4 MeV - 40 MeV by Helios and IMP-8 spacecraft (SC) during 1974-1978 are used to analyze several solar energetic particle (SEP) events. In particular, the problem of the flux radial dependence is faced, by selecting events for which at least two SC have nominal magnetic footpoints within 20° in heliographic longitude. For each event, the data were previously calibrated by comparing measurements from channels with equivalent energy aboard the different space vehicles. Results for the radial dependence between ˜ 0.3 AU and ˜ 1 AU provide a realistic scaling of SEP fluxes at Mercury orbit.

    The Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) is predicted for Au-Au collisions at RHIC. However many backgrounds can give signals that make the measurement hard to interpret. The STAR experiment has made measurements at different collisions energy ranging from ?sNN=7.7 GeV to 62.4 GeV. In the analysis that is presented we show that the CME turns on with energy and is not present in central collisions where the induced magnetic is small.

  4. D'une olivine naturelle à un catalyseur industriel au nickel pour la production d'hydrogène à partir de biomasse

    L'olivine naturelle ((Mg,Fe){2}SiO{4}) présente un double intérêt comme catalyseur de gazéification de la biomasse en lit fluidisé circulant : son activité catalytique supérieure à la silice et sa grande dureté lui conférant une résistance à l'attrition. L'addition de nickel à l'olivine naturelle permet d'obtenir un catalyseur de reformage du méthane et des goudrons répondant aux exigences liées au procédé, à savoir une utilisation en lit fluidisé circulant alternativement en phase réductrice et oxydante et une association forte nickel-olivine. Le rôle des différentes phases présentes dans l'olivine est mis en évidence par DRX, TPR, MEB et spectroscopie Mössbauer. Cette étude permet d'identifier les interactions nickel-support du catalyseur créées à différentes températures de calcination et d'expliquer les mécanismes de formation du catalyseur actif. Un rejet de fer sous forme d'oxyde est observé. Il peut être expliqué soit par à un échange avec le nickel, sans modification de la structure olivine initiale, conduisant à la formulation ((Mg,Ni){2}SiO{4}), soit par la précipitation d'une phase MgO avec formation d'une solution solide NiO-MgO. La deuxième hypothèse est privilégiée car la présence de cette phase est cohérente avec l'existence d'interactions fortes nickel-olivine et avec les rapports Ni/Mg {=} 1 à la surface des grains sur l'échantillon Ni/olivine calciné à 1100circC. Elle explique la grande activité catalytique de cet échantillon en reformage du méthane.

    We report new STAR measurements of midrapidity yields for the ?, ?¯, KS0, ?-, ?¯+, ?-, ?¯+ particles in Cu+Cu collisions at sNN=200GeV, and midrapidity yields for the ?, ?¯, KS0 particles in Au+Au at sNN=200GeV. We show that, at a given number of participating nucleons, the production of strange hadrons is higher in Cu+Cu collisions than in Au+Au collisions at the same center-of-mass energy. We find that aspects of the enhancement factors for all particles can be described by a parametrization based on the fraction of participants that undergo multiple collisions.

    We study the adsorption of borohydride on Au and Au-based alloys (Au(3)M with M = Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) using first-principles calculations based on spin-polarized density functional theory. Favorable molecular adsorption and greater adsorption stability compared to pure Au are achieved on Au(3)M alloys. For these alloys, there is an emergence of unoccupied states in the surface d band around the Fermi level with respect to the fully occupied d band of pure Au. Thus, the derived antibonding state of the sp-d interaction is upshifted and becomes unoccupied compared to pure Au. The B-H bond elongation of the adsorbed borohydride on these alloy surfaces points to the role of surface-parallel (d(xy) and d(x(2)-y(2)) states) components of the d-band of the alloying metal M, most pronouncedly in the cases of M = Co or Ni. On the alloy surfaces, B binds directly with the alloying metal, unlike in the case of pure Au where the surface bonding is through the H atoms. These results pose relevant insights into the design of Au-based anode catalysts for the direct borohydride fuel cell. PMID:23168688

    We report photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and high-resolution PE imaging of AuC2- at a wide range of photon energies. The ground state of AuC2- is found to be linear (C?v, 1?+) with a …8?44?417?29?418?2 valence configuration. Detachments from all the five valence orbitals of the ground state of AuC2- are observed at 193 nm. High-resolution PE images are obtained in the energy range from 830 to 330 nm, revealing complicated vibronic structures from electron detachment of the 18?, 9?, and 17? orbitals. Detachment from the 18? orbital results in the 2?+ ground state of neutral AuC2, which, however, is bent due to strong vibronic coupling with the nearby 2? state from detachment of a 9? electron. The 2?+-2? vibronic and spin-orbit coupling results in complicated vibronic structures for the 2?+ and 2?3/2 states with extensive bending excitations. The electron affinity of AuC2 is measured accurately to be 3.2192(7) eV with a ground state bending frequency of 195(6) cm-1. The first excited state (2A') of AuC2, corresponding to the 2?3/2 state at the linear geometry, is only 0.0021 eV above the ground state (2A') and has a bending frequency of 207(6) cm-1. The 2?1/2 state, 0.2291 eV above the ground state, is linear with little geometry change relative to the anion ground state. The detachment of the 17? orbital also results in complicated vibronic structures, suggesting again a bent state due to possible vibronic coupling with the lower 2? state. The spectrum at 193 nm shows the presence of a minor species with less than 2% intensity relative to the ground state of AuC2-. High-resolution data of the minor species reveal several vibrational progressions in the Au-C stretching mode, which are assigned to be from the metastable 3?2,1,0 spin-orbit excited states of AuC2- to the 2?3/2,1/2 spin-orbit states of neutral AuC2. The spin-orbit splittings of the 3? and 2? states are accurately measured at the linear geometry. The current study provides a wealth of electronic structure information about AuC2- and AuC2, which are ideal systems to investigate the strong ?-? and spin-orbit vibronic couplings.

    Following the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 (Run-10) Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) Au+Au run, RHIC experiment upgrades sought to improve detector capabilities. In turn, accelerator improvements were made to improve the luminosity available to the experiments for this run (Run-11). These improvements included: a redesign of the stochastic cooling systems for improved reliability; a relocation of 'common' RF cavities to alleviate intensity limits due to beam loading; and an improved usage of feedback systems to control orbit, tune and coupling during energy ramps as well as while colliding at top energy. We present an overview of changes to the Collider and review the performance of the collider with respect to instantaneous and integrated luminosity goals. At the conclusion of the FY 2011 polarized proton run, preparations for heavy ion run proceeded on April 18, with Au+Au collisions continuing through June 28. Our standard operations at 100 GeV/nucleon beam energy was bracketed by two shorter periods of collisions at lower energies (9.8 and 13.5 GeV/nucleon), continuing a previously established program of low and medium energy runs. Table 1 summarizes our history of heavy ion operations at RHIC.

    The construction of two amperometric l-lysine biosensors is described in this study. The construction comprises the covalent immobilization of lysine oxidase (LOx) onto nanocomposite composed of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and carboxylated multiwalled carbon nanotubes (c-MWCNT), decorated on (i) polyaniline (PANI) and (ii) poly 1,2 diaminobenzene (DAB), electrodeposited on Au electrodes. The biosensors were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) studies. The optimum response (current) was observed within 2 s at pH 7.0 and 25 °C for LOx/AuNPs/c-MWCNT/PANI/Au, and 4 s at pH 7.0 and 30 °C for LOx/AuNPs/c-MWCNT/DAB/Au electrodes. There was a linear relationship between current and lysine concentration ranging from 5.0 to 600 ?M for LOx/AuNPs/c-MWCNT/PANI/Au with a detection limit of 5.0 ?M, and 20 to 600 ?M for the LOx/AuNPs/c-MWCNT/DAB/Au electrode with a detection limit of 20 ?M. The PANI modified electrode was in good agreement with the standard HPLC method, with a better correlation (r = 0.992) compared to the DAB modified electrode (r = 0.986). These observations revealed that the PANI modified Au electrode was better than the DAB modified electrode, and hence it was employed for the determination of lysine in milk, pharmaceutical tablets and sera. The PANI modified electrode showed a half life of 120 days, compared to that of 90 days for the DAB modified electrode, after their 100 uses, when stored at 4 °C. PMID:22986735

    We successfully synthesized Au-ZnO hybrid nanoparticles with a novel hexagonal pyramid-like structure. The growth process of the as-prepared hybrid nanopyramids is clearly discussed. Because of their homogeneous composition and controlled morphology, the Au-ZnO hybrid nanopyramids demonstrate better photocatalytic efficiency than pure ZnO nanocrystals. PMID:21446650

    The deposition of Au and Ag, locally and from bulk solution, on poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) was studied. Specifically, PEDOT was electrochemically polymerized onto a glassy carbon (GC) electrode and used for bulk deposition of Au and Ag from their respective ions dissolved in the solution as well as for the local deposition of these metals using scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). These two sets of experiments were utilized to investigate the difference between Au and Ag electrochemical deposition on PEDOT. In particular, SECM experiments, which were conducted by the controlled anodic dissolution of Au and Ag microelectrodes close to GC/PEDOT, probed the effect of different PEDOT oxidation states on local deposition. The current-time transients recorded during the deposition, combined with scanning electron microscopy and EDX analysis provided insight into the reduction processes. AuCl(4)(-) and Ag(+) ions were electrochemically reduced at a potential equal to and more negative than the ions redox potentials (0.4 and 0.2 V, respectively) and more positive than -0.7 V, where the PEDOT starts transforming into the reduced, i.e. insulating, state. We found that the electroreduction of Ag(+) ions was diffusion-controlled and the PEDOT film served as a simple conductor. On the other hand, the reduction of AuCl(4)(-) ions was enhanced on GC/PEDOT as compared with bare GC, indicating that PEDOT catalyzes the reduction of AuCl(4)(-) to Au. PMID:21993698

    Current trends toward miniaturization and the use of lead(Pb)-free solder in electronic packaging present new problems in the reliability of solder joints. This study was performed in order to understand the microstructure and microstructural evolution of small volumes of nominally eutectic Au-Sn solder joints (80Au-20Sn by weight), which gives insight into properties and reliability.

    The STAR (Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC) experiment is a large acceptance collider detector that measures primarily hadronic observables to search for signatures of the quark-gluon plasma phase transition and study strongly interacting matter at high energy density. Operational since June 2000, the new heavy ion collider RHIC has already provided Au+Au collisions at {radical}({sigma}{sub NN}) = 62, 130 and 200 GeV as well as p+p and d+Au collisions at 200 GeV. The various collision energies and systems allow the systematic study of particle production in heavy ion collisions. In particular, the production of strange (anti-)particles is one of the major topics of STAR. This detector allows the measurement of a variety of particle species at mid-rapidity, like neutral kaons; {lambda}, {xi}, and {omega}. hyperons; and their anti-particles that are reconstructed via their decay topology. The strangeness measurements should provide important information on various phenomenological aspects of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. The goal of this work is to perform the measurement of neutral kaons on Au+Au collisions at 62 GeV. This measurement will bring important information about strangeness production in the energy range between the top RHIC energy and the top SPS energy, where important questions regarding particle production are still open. In this poster, preliminary results of the analysis will be presented, mainly the evaluation of the topological cuts necessary for the neutral kaon reconstruction and the corrections that are necessary to obtain the transverse momentum spectra.

    A novel and facile wet-chemical method for the preparation of Au thin films is presented. These Au thin films were deposited on glass substrates by the gravitational sedimentation of Au colloids. The colloids were formed by chemical reduction in ethanol using HAuCl4 and NaBH4 with no added surfactants. Without stabilizing agents the colloids quickly aggregated, settled to the bottom and formed a thin film. The sedimentation of the colloids was monitored using UV-vis spectroscopy. Thin films with Au loads ranging between 0.25 and 4.0 g m-2 were prepared and characterized by means of UV-vis spectroscopy, electrical resistance measurements, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and cyclic voltammetry. The results showed that nanostructured Au films with a very high specific surface area were formed. The films were electrically conductive and partially transparent to visible light. PMID:26085408

    Résumé Objectif Présenter un profil populationnel pancanadien des besoins en soins de santé et de leur utilisation, facile d’accès et permettant des comparaisons entre les provinces et avec d’autres instances internationales. Conception Une comparaison des taux d’utilisation des soins de santé entre les provinces en utilisant des données d’enquêtes et des renseignements administratifs sur la santé. Contexte Les provinces du Canada. Principaux paramètres à l’étude Les taux canadiens et provinciaux de personnes en mauvaise santé (présence de problèmes chroniques) et d’utilisation des soins de santé (contacts avec des médecins de famille, avec d’autres médecins spécialistes, avec des infirmières et hospitalisations) sous forme de proportions mensuelles par 1000 habitants normalisées en fonction de l’âge et du genre. Résultats La proportion mensuelle par 1000 habitants de personnes souffrant d’au moins 1 problème chronique variait de 524 au Québec à 638 en Nouvelle-Écosse; les contacts avec un médecin de famille se situaient entre 158 au Québec et 295 en Colombie-Britannique; les contacts avec d’autres médecins spécialistes variaient entre 53 en Saskatchewan et 79 en Ontario; et le nombre de contacts avec des infirmières se situait entre 23 en Colombie-Britannique et 41 au Québec. Le nombre de séjours à l’hôpital variait entre 8 et 11 par 1000 habitants et les proportions étaient semblables d’une province à l’autre. Conclusion Il est essentiel de reconnaître les distinctions entre les provinces pour éclairer les politiques sur la santé dans l’ensemble du pays. Les différences persistaient lorsque les taux étaient normalisés en fonction de la composition démographique variable selon l’âge et le genre dans les provinces. Cet article présente une méthodologie simple à l’aide de données publiquement accessibles qui peut servir dans chaque province à examiner, à l’avenir, l’évolution avec le temps de l’utilisation des soins de santé par les instances provinciales.

    We present Molecular Dynamics simulation results concerning the structural properties of Cu and Au 2D adlayers on the Cu3Au(110) surface. We found that at low coverage the Cu adatoms occupy mainly dumbbell positions forming “pairs” with the Cu surface atoms, giving an incommensurate 1 × 4 aspect in the surface layer. It appears that this “pairing” stabilizes the surface preventing

    A new reaction mechanism of violent reseparation of a heavy nucleus-nucleus system, 197Au + 197Au, into three or four massive fragments in collisions at 15 MeV/nucleon has been observed. After reseparation, the fragments are almost exactly aligned, thus showing a very short time scale of the reseparation process, of about 70-80 fm/c. PMID:19437637

    It is demonstrated that electronic structure calculations using the local-density approximation with density-functional theory accounts for the distinctly different behaviors in the equilibrium phase diagrams among Cu-Ag, Cu-Au, and Ag-Au alloy systems. A detailed microscopic analysis is made based on the prescription proposed by Connolly and Williams.

    We report the STAR measurement of {psi} meson production in Au + Au and p + p collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV. Using the event mixing technique, the {psi} spectra and yields are obtained at midrapidity for five centrality bins in Au+Au collisions and for non-singly-diffractive p+p collisions. It is found that the {psi} transverse momentum distributions from Au+Au collisions are better fitted with a single-exponential while the p+p spectrum is better described by a double-exponential distribution. The measured nuclear modification factors indicate that {psi} production in central Au+Au collisions is suppressed relative to peripheral collisions when scaled by the number of binary collisions (). The systematics of versus centrality and the constant {psi}/K{sup -} ratio versus beam species, centrality, and collision energy rule out kaon coalescence as the dominant mechanism for {psi} production.

    Measurements of the midrapidity transverse-energy distribution, dET/d?, are presented for p +p, d +Au, and Au +Au collisions at ?sNN =200 GeV and additionally for Au +Au collisions at ?sNN =62.4 and 130 GeV. The dET/d? distributions are first compared with the number of nucleon participants Npart, number of binary collisions Ncoll, and number of constituent-quark participants Nqp calculated from a Glauber model based on the nuclear geometry. For Au +Au, /Npart increases with Npart, while /Nqp is approximately constant for all three energies. This indicates that the two-component ansatz, dET/d? ?(1-x)Npart/2+xNcoll, which was used to represent ET distributions, is simply a proxy for Nqp, and that the Ncoll term does not represent a hard-scattering component in ET distributions. The dET/d? distributions of Au +Au and d +Au are then calculated from the measured p +p ET distribution using two models that both reproduce the Au +Au data. However, while the number-of-constituent-quark-participant model agrees well with the d +Au data, the additive-quark model does not.

    In order to study the Au- + H2 collision, a new global potential energy surface (PES) describing the ground electronic state of AuH 2- system is developed and compared with the PESs of the neutral [Zanchet et al., J. Chem. Phys. 132, 034301 (2010)] and cationic systems [Anaís et al., J. Chem. Phys. 135, 091102 (2011)]. We found that Au- - H2 presents a H-Au-H insertion minimum attributed to the stabilization of the LUMO 3b2 orbital, which can be considered as the preamble of the chemisorption well appearing in larger gold clusters. While the LUMO orbital is stabilized, the HOMO 6a1 is destabilized, creating a barrier at the geometry where the energy orbitals' curves are crossing. In the anion, this HOMO is doubly occupied, while in the neutral system is half-filled and completely empty in the cation, explaining the gradual disappearance of the well and the barrier as the number of electrons decreases. The cation presents a well in the entrance channel partially explained by electrostatic interactions. The three systems' reactions are highly endothermic, by 1.66, 2.79, and 3.23 eV for AuH, AuH+, and AuH- products, respectively. The reaction dynamics is studied using quasi-classical trajectory method for the three systems. The one corresponding to the anionic system is new in this work. Collision energies between 1.00 and 8.00 eV, measured for the cation, are in good agreement with the simulated cross section for the AuH+. It was also found that the total fragmentation, in three atoms, competes becoming dominant at sufficiently high energy. Here, we study the competition between the two different reaction pathways for the anionic, cationic, and neutral species, explaining the differences using a simple model based on the topology of the potential energy surfaces.

    We report measurements of single-particle inclusive spectra and two-particle azimuthal distributions of charged hadrons at high transverse momentum (high p(T)) in minimum bias and central d+Au collisions at roots(NN)=200 GeV. The inclusive yield is enhanced in d+Au collisions relative to binary-scaled p+p collisions, while the two-particle azimuthal distributions are very similar to those observed in p+p collisions. These results demonstrate

    Crack formation mechanism in laser-welded Au-coated Invar materials for semiconductor laser packaging is investigated experimentally and numerically. Experimental results obtained from metallography, scanning electron microscope (SEM), SEM mapping, and energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS) line profile show that high concentration of Au composition accumulate near the crack region. The cause of Au accumulation may come from the segregation of Au along

    Two-pion interferometry measurements in $d$$+$Au and Au$+$Au collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{{NN}}}=200$ GeV are used to extract and compare the Gaussian source radii R$_{{\\rm out}}$, R$_{{\\rm side}}$, and R$_{{\\rm long}}$, which characterize the space-time extent of the emission sources. The comparisons, which are performed as a function of collision centrality and the mean transverse momentum for pion pairs, indicate strikingly similar patterns for the $d$$+$Au and Au$+$Au systems. They also indicate a linear dependence of R$_{{\\rm side}}$ on the initial transverse geometric size $\\bar{R}$, as well as a smaller freeze-out size for the $d$$+$Au system. These patterns point to the important role of final-state rescattering effects in the reaction dynamics of $d$$+$Au collisions.

  9. Theoretical studies of acrolein hydrogenation on Au20 nanoparticle

    2010-05-01

    Gold nanoparticles play a key role in catalytic processes. We investigated the kinetics of stepwise hydrogenation of acrolein on Au20 cluster model and compared with that on Au(110) surface. The rate-limiting step barrier of C?C reduction is about 0.5 eV higher than that of C?O hydrogenation on Au(110) surface. On Au20 nanoparticle, however, the energy barrier of the rate-determining step for C?C hydrogenation turns out to be slightly lower than the value for the C?O reduction. The selectivity difference on the two substrate models are attributed to different adsorption modes of acrolein: via the C?C on Au20, compared to through both C?C and C?O on Au(110). The preference switch implies that the predicted selectivity of competitive hydrogenation depends on substrate model sensitively, and particles with more low-coordinated Au atoms than flat surfaces are favorable for C?C hydrogenation, which is in agreement with experimental result.

  10. Beam Energy Dependence of Dielectron Production in Au+Au Collisions from STAR at RHIC

    We present the energy-dependent study of dielectron production in 0-80% minimum-bias Au+Au collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ energies of 19.6, 27, 39, and 62.4 GeV in STAR. Invariant mass ($M_{ee}$) and transverse momentum ($p_T$) differential measurements of dielectron yields are compared to cocktail simulations of known hadronic sources and semi-leptonic charmed decays. The enhancement (excess yield) prominent in the Low-Mass Region (LMR) over the cocktail at all energies, is further compared to calculations of $\\rho$ in-medium modifications. Within statistical and systematic uncertainties, we find that the model consistently describes this enhancement from SPS up to top RHIC energies in its $M_{ee}$- as well as $p_T$-dependence. Dielectron measurements drive the statistics for the future BES Phase-II program, which promises to improve our understanding of the LMR enhancement's trend with total baryon densities.

    The relativistic hydrodynamical model HYLANDER-C is used to give estimates for single inclusive particle momentum spectra in {radical} (s) =200 GeV/nucleon Au+Au collisions that will be investigated experimentally in the near future. The predictions are based on initial conditions that the initial fireball has a longitudinal extension of 1.6 fm and an initial energy density of 30.8 GeV/fm{sup 3} as obtained from a cascade model. For the collision energy considered here, different stopping scenarios are explored for the first time. Our calculations give particle yields of the order of 10thinsp000 to 20thinsp000 charged particles per event. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}

    2009-10-01

    The Pioneering High Energy Nuclear Interaction eXperiment (PHENIX), located at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) ring at Brookhaven National Laboratory, is designed to examine direct probes from proton-proton and heavy ion collisions. The PHENIX Muon Piston Calorimeter (MPC) is being calibrated for a measurement of transverse energy in the forward region, 3.1<|?|<3.8, using RHIC Au+Au collisions at sqrtsNN = 200 GeV. The MPC consists of 196 towers in the north station and 220 towers in the south. The gain of each tower will be calibrated using an iterative process based on the 0? peak formed from the photon pairs into which they decay. This poster will focus on the methods we use for the reconstruction of 0?, such as data cuts, background generation and data isolation.

    Identified particle elliptic flow results are presented for the Au+Au reaction at sqrt[s_{NN}] = 200$ GeV as a function of transverse momentum and pseudorapidity. Data at pseudorapidities eta approximately equal to 0, 1, and 3.4 were obtained using the two BRAHMS spectrometers. Differential v2(eta, pt) values for a given particle type are found to be essentially constant over the covered pseudorapidity range, in contrast to the integral v2 values which have previously been observed to decrease at forward rapidities. A softening of the particle spectra at forward angles is found to account for at least part of the integral v2 falloff. The data are found to be consistent with existing constituent quark scaling systematics.

    1980-03-01

    Diffusion induced grain boundary migration was studied by employing Au-Cu and Au-Ag thin film specimens. The results support the conclusion that this phenomenon is widespread and that it can lead to boundary migration and bulk composition change under conditions where neither is expected. Two approaches were employed to study this phenomenon. In the first approach polycrystalline gold thin films were coated with either copper or silver layers annealed and etched in an appropriate acid bath to strip off the copper or silver layers. The microstructure and the chemical composition of these alloy zones, were studied by means of both transmission electron microscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy. In the second approach coated gold thin films were depth profiled by combined Auger Electron Spectroscopy and Xe Ion Sputtering. In both approaches, it was observed that the boundary migration rate decreased as the migration proceeded.

    X-ray-absorption fine structure (XAFS) and x-ray-diffraction (XRD) measurements of disordered alloys AuxCu1-x and Au0.5Ag0.5 prepared by melt spinning were performed. In the Au0.5Ag0.5 alloy, no significant local deviations of the atoms from the average fcc lattice were detected while in AuxCu1-x alloys, significant deviations of atoms from the average fcc lattice were found. Mean-square vibrations of the Cu-Cu distances revealed by the XAFS in AuxCu1-x alloys indicate the weakening of contact between Cu atoms in the dilute limit. Our computer simulation for AuxCu1-x clusters of 105 atoms reproduces the main features of both the XAFS and XRD data.

    2015-05-01

    In non-identical particle correlations, e.g. pion-kaon femtoscopy, one can obtain information about source size and asymmetry in emission processes of pions and kaons. Such asymmetry give us knowledge of which type of particles is emitted first/second and/or from which region of the source. The studies of non-identical particle femtoscopy for Beam Energy Scan energies give us the opportunity to study how the source size and asymmetry in particle emission depend on the initial conditions of the collision. It also allows one to examine these parameters in the vicinity of the theoretical critical point. In these proceedings, we present STAR results of pion-kaon femtoscopy at mid-rapidity in Au+Au collisions at \\sqrt{sNN} = 7.7, 19.6 and 39 GeV.

    We investigate the difference between hadron resonance gas (HRG) calculations for chemical freeze-out parameters at fully and partly chemical equilibria. To this end, the results are compared with the particle ratios measured in central Au-Au collisions at a wide range of nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energies, \\hbox{$\\sqrt{s_{NN}}=7.7-200 $GeV} as offered by the STAR experiment. We restrict the discussion to STAR, because of large statistics and overall homogeneity of STAR measurements (one detector) against previous experiments. We find that the matter produced at these energies is likely in fully chemical equilibrium, which is consistent with recent lattice QCD results.

    An improved multilayer structure of a metal pad is developed for Au wire bonding to a monolithic IC. The proposed structure of the pad is Ti(2.5 nm)/Cu(800 nm)/Ti(70 nm)/Al(130 nm) on SiO2/Si substrates. Thermosonic Au wire bonding to the pad shows good bondability after heating at 473 K for the storage time of 3.6 ks in air. During heat treatment at 473 K after bonding, the bond between the Au wire and the pad is not degraded.

  1. Energy level alignment in Au/pentacene/PTCDA trilayer stacks

    Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy is used to investigate the energy level alignment and molecular orientation at the interfaces in Au/pentacene/PTCDA trilayer stacks. We deduced a standing orientation for pentacene grown on Au while we conclude a flat lying geometry for PTCDA grown onto pentacene. We propose that the rough surface of polycrystalline Au induces the standing geometry in pentacene. It is further shown that in situ deposition of PTCDA on pentacene can influence the orientation of the surface pentacene layer, flipping part of the surface pentacene molecules into a flat lying geometry, maximizing the orbital interaction across the pentacene-PTCDA heterojunction.

    First-principles calculations within density functional theory (DFT) with the projector augmented wave (PAW) technique were used to investigate the stabilities of intermetallics in the Au-Rb system at 0 K. Four intermetallics: Au7Rb3, Au3Rb2, Au5Rb and AuRb were investigated in their observed experimental structures. The Au2Rb compound, reported in the Au-Rb phase diagrams without specifying explicitly its structure, was also investigated by inspecting several hypothetical structures. A suspect compound (AuRb2) was also investigated. Results show that: (i) The Au3Rb2 and Au7Rb3 compounds, which were never reported in any Au-Rb phase diagram, are stable at 0 K. (ii) The Au2Rb compound is not a ground state for all the tested structures. (iii) Stability of the Au5Rb and AuRb compounds was confirmed. (iv) The new compound AuRb2, not yet reported experimentally, is found mechanically stable at 0 K.

  4. FT-ICR/MS and ab initio study of polynuclear Au and Au-Cu clusters in aqueous fluids

    The geochemistry and transport of aqueous transition metals such as copper and gold in the Earth's crust is still poorly known. FT-ICR mass spectrometry and ab initio calculations can provide fundamental insight on a molecular-scale level into the structure, stability and abundance of relevant Cu and Au species. We have measured high temperature ion cluster mass spectra of aqueous gold and copper chloride solutions using a custom-modified FT-ICR mass spectrometer equipped with an electrospray ionization source. In pure dilute aqueous AuCl3 solutions (1-25mM), Au(III) is present as an ion complex [AuCl2]+ and is hydrated with up to four water molecules, with the trihydrate [AuCl2]+(H2O)3 being the most stable species. In addition, several polynuclear ion clusters were observed, e.g. the dinuclear ion [Au2Cl5]+, including the hydrated forms [Au2Cl5]+(H2O) and [Au2Cl5]+(H2O)2. In more concentrated AuCl3 solutions (100mM, pH=2.3) the protonated Zundel cation [H5O2]+, [H7O3]+ and Eigen cation [H9O4]+ were detected, suggesting that protonated water clusters are equally relevant species in crustal fluids. We also measured mass spectra of binary solutions of aqueous transition metals, i.e. CuCl2/AuCl3 (5mM) and detected mixed Au(III)/Cu(II)-chloro clusters up to the tetranuclear [AuCu3Cl8]+ ion and their hydrated forms. The ab initio component of this study was designed to deliver additional insight into the structure of individual transition metal clusters as well as to the relative stability of each species, both unhydrated and in the presence of water molecules. Ab initio calculations were first conducted using MP2 theory and results thereof were then applied as starting points for subsequent couple-cluster CCSD(T) theory calculations. For the dinuclear ion [Au2Cl5]+, for example, the MP2 global minimum is a planar structure (see Figure; A) with an Au-Au bond distance of 3.435Å, while the second isomer (see Figure; B) has an Au-Au bond distance of 3.588Å and is around 3.5 kJ/mol higher in energy. Theoretical [Au2Cl5]+ ion cluster geometries are then used to compute higher temperature heat capacity data that may be used to predict fundamental thermodynamic properties of transition metal-charged aqueous systems at elevated temperatures. Results from such mass spectrometric and ab initio studies would allow modeling of gold and copper speciation in crustal fluids and assist in understanding prenucleation processes in metal halides in nature.

  5. Oxidation of nanoscale Au–In alloy particles as a possible route toward stable Au-based catalysts

    The oxidation of bimetallic alloy nanoparticles comprising a noble and a nonnoble metal is expected to cause the formation of a single-component surface oxide of the nonnoble metal, surrounding a core enriched with the noble metal. Studying the room temperature oxidation of Au–In nanoparticles, we show that this simple picture does not apply to an important class of bimetallic alloys, in which the oxidation proceeds via predominant oxygen diffusion. Instead of a crystalline In2O3 shell, such oxidation leads to an amorphous shell of mixed Au–In oxide that remains stable to high temperatures and whose surface layer is enriched with Au. The Au-rich mixed oxide is capable of adsorbing both CO and O2 and converting them to CO2, which desorbs near room temperature. The oxidation of Au–In alloys to a mixed Au–In oxide shows significant promise as a viable approach toward Au-based oxidation catalysts, which do not require any complex synthesis processes and resist deactivation up to at least 300 °C.

    A tray-shaped Pd(II)3Au(I)3 complex (1) is prepared from 3,5-bis(3-pyridyl)pyrazole by means of tricyclization with Au(I) followed by Pd(II) clipping. Tray 1 is an efficient scaffold for the modular assembly of [3×n] Au(I) clusters. Treatment of 1 with the Au(I)3 tricyclic guest 2 in H2O/CH3CN (7:3) or H2O results in the selective formation of a [3×2] cluster (1?2) or a [3×3] cluster (1?2?1), respectively. Upon subsequent addition of Ag(I) ions, these complexes are converted to an unprecedented Au3-Au3-Ag-Au3-Au3 metal ion cluster. PMID:25169717

    Azimuthal angular correlations of charged hadrons with respect to the axis of a reconstructed (trigger) jet in Au+Au and p+p collisions at ?[s(NN)]=200??GeV in STAR are presented. The trigger jet population in Au+Au collisions is biased toward jets that have not interacted with the medium, allowing easier matching of jet energies between Au+Au and p+p collisions while enhancing medium effects on the recoil jet. The associated hadron yield of the recoil jet is significantly suppressed at high transverse momentum (pTassoc) and enhanced at low pTassoc in 0%-20% central Au+Au collisions compared to p+p collisions, which is indicative of medium-induced parton energy loss in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions.

    TiO2 modified with monometallic (Au or Pt) and bimetallic (Au/Pt) nanoparticles have been prepared using a water-in-oil microemulsion system (water/AOT/cyclohexane) followed by calcination step. The effect of metal ratio, reducing agent type (NaBH4 or N2H4), TiO2 matrix type (P-25, ST-01, TiO-5, TiO2 nanotubes or TiO2 obtained by TIP hydrolysis) as well as calcination temperature (from 350 to 650 °C) were systematically investigated. Obtained photocatalysts were characterized by UV-vis diffuse-reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), BET surface area measurements, scanning transmission microscopy (STEM), X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Photocatalytic activity under visible light (? > 420 nm) has been estimated in phenol degradation reaction in aqueous phase. The results showed that phenol degradation rate under visible light in the presence of TiO2 loaded with Au/Pt nanoparticles differed from 0.7 to 2.2 ?mol dm-3 min-1 for samples prepared using different reducing agent. Sodium borohydride (NaBH4) favors formation of smaller Au/Pt nanoparticles and higher amount gold in Au/Pt is in the form of electronegative species (Au?-) resulted in higher photoactivity. TiO2 obtained by TIP hydrolysis in microemulsion system seems to be the best support for Au/Pt nanoparticles from all among investigated matrix. It was also observed that enhancement of calcination temperature from 450 to 650 °C resulted in rapid drop of Au/Pt-TiO2 photoactivity under visible light due to surface area shrinkage, crystal structure change and probably change in Au/Pt nanoparticles morphology.

  12. Ab initio molecular dynamical investigation of the finite temperature behavior of the tetrahedral Au19 and Au20 clusters.

    Density functional molecular dynamics simulations have been carried out to understand the finite temperature behavior of Au19 and Au20 clusters. Au20 has been reported to be a unique molecule having tetrahedral geometry, a large HOMO-LUMO energy gap, and an atomic packing similar to that of the bulk gold (Li, J.; et al. Science 2003, 299, 864). Our results show that the geometry of Au19 is exactly identical with that of Au20 with one missing corner atom (called a vacancy). Surprisingly, our calculated heat capacities for this nearly identical pair of gold clusters exhibit dramatic differences. Au20 undergoes a clear and distinct solid-like to liquid-like transition with a sharp peak in the heat capacity curve around 770 K. On the other hand, Au19 has a broad and flat heat capacity curve with continuous melting transition. This continuous melting transition turns out to be a consequence of a process involving a series of atomic rearrangements along the surface to fill in the missing corner atom. This results in a restricted diffusive motion of atoms along the surface of Au19 between 650 to 900 K during which the shape of the ground state geometry is retained. In contrast, the tetrahedral structure of Au20 is destroyed around 800 K, and the cluster is clearly in a liquid-like state above 1000 K. Thus, this work clearly demonstrates that (i) the gold clusters exhibit size sensitive variations in the heat capacity curves and (ii) the broad and continuous melting transition in a cluster, a feature that has so far been attributed to the disorder or absence of symmetry in the system, can also be a consequence of a defect (absence of a cap atom) in the structure.

    DNA offers excellent programming properties to nanomaterials syntheses. Host-guest interaction between DNA nanostructures and inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) is of particular interest because the resulting complexes would possess both programming properties intrinsic to DNA and physical properties associated with inorganic NPs, such as plasmonic and magnetic features. Here, we report a class of core-shell complexes (AuNP@DNA cages): hard gold NPs (AuNPs) are encapsulated in geometrically well-defined soft DNA nanocages. The AuNP guest can be further controllably released from the host (DNA nanocages), pointing to potential applications in surface engineering of inorganic NPs and cargo delivery of DNA nanocages.

    Tiopronin (N-(2-mercaptopropionyl)glycine)-protected gold nanoparticles (TPAu) were cross-linked to collagen via EDC (1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethyl aminopropyl) carbodiimide) coupling. On average, each TPAu forms eight amide bonds with collagen lysine moieties. The resulting gels were studied with environmental SEM, TEM, micro-DSC, and TNBS assay. The porous structure of collagen was significantly altered by cross-linking, resulting in the reduction of the pore size from ca. 140 to <1 microm depending on the concentration of nanoparticles. The collagenase biodegradation assay showed improved stability of cross-linked material. The cell viability assay, CellTiter96, indicates that the gold nanoparticles are not toxic at the concentrations used in gel synthesis. This new material has potential for the delivery of small molecule drugs as well as Au nanoparticles for photothermal therapies, imaging, and cell targeting. PMID:18959440

    We have used inverse photoemission (IPE) in the isochromat mode to study the (1x5) clean surface reconstruction of Au(113). Our data show several surface resonances which disperse strongly as a function of k_//. Using LMTO formalism we have performed a band structure calculation and used these results to predict the dispersion of bulk-derived features on the IPE spectra of this surface. The comparison of the calculation and experimental data has allowed us to clearly identify a new unoccupied surface state in the band gap along the [33bar2] direction and also the origin of several other resonances present in our spectra. This research has been partially funded by FONDECYT, USACH and UTFSM, Chile.

    We report on the observed differences in production rates of strange and multistrange baryons in Au+Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV compared to p+p interactions at the same energy. The strange baryon yields in Au+Au collisions, when scaled down by the number of participating nucleons, are enhanced relative to those measured in p+p reactions. The enhancement observed increases with the strangeness

    The aluminum-gold system exhibits various features that suggest high glass formability, such as a deep eutectic, formation of icosahedral clusters in the intermetallic compound near the eutectic minimum and a strongly negative heat of mixing. However, it is very difficult to form a glass with this system. Various issues related to glass formability are discussed using the Al-Au system as a negative test-case. In particular, the atomic level pressure was calculated from first principles for the first time for Al{sub 2}Au, AlAu{sub 2} and AlAu{sub 4} intermetallic compounds. The atomic level pressure is very high in these compounds, suggesting frustrated electronic states which destabilize both crystalline and glassy phases.

    The synthesis of double shell (Au-Ag)-Au nanoparticles is accomplished through suppression of the galvanic replacement reaction caused by an electron transfer phenomenon. The resulting nanoparticles are monodisperse with a thin and uniform second Au shell. These particles are ultimately expected to lead to sensitive probes for biomolecular sensing and diagnostics.

    A one-step synthesis of heterostructured high magnetic moment FeCo-Au nanocrystals was demonstrated. The nanocrystals possess a cubic shape and have an average size of 30 nm. Compositional analysis revealed the detailed distribution of each element within the nanocrystal. The crystalline structure of the components and their epitaxial relationship were determined by structural analysis. The heterostructured FeCo-Au nanocrystals are promising in biomedical applications as well as in fundamental studies of interactions in the nanoscale.

    Low-coordination Au sites have been proved to play a key role in defining the catalytic activity of Au nanoclusters (NCs). At the present time, it is still of great interest and challenge to design and synthesize catalysts containing the desired amount of low-coordinated Au atoms by a simple, easy, and large-scale method. In this study, PVP-protected 'crown jewel'-structured Au/Pd (CJ-Au/Pd) catalyst containing an abundance of top Au atoms were prepared by redox replacement reaction between Pd NCs and Au3+ ions. The catalytic activity of the CJ-Au/Pd NCs for aerobic glucose oxidation is about 3 times higher than that of the Au/Pd alloy NCs prepared by alcohol reduction method, although all of these NCs possess almost the same particle size.

    We present spectra of charged hadrons from Au+Au and d+Au collisions at sqrt[s(NN)]=200 GeV measured with the BRAHMS experiment at RHIC. The spectra for different collision centralities are compared to spectra from p+(-)p collisions at the same energy scaled by the number of binary collisions. The resulting ratios (nuclear modification factors) for central Au+Au collisions at eta=0 and eta=2.2 evidence a strong suppression in the high p(T) region (>2 GeV/c). In contrast, the d+Au nuclear modification factor (at eta=0) exhibits an enhancement of the high p(T) yields. These measurements indicate a high energy loss of the high p(T) particles in the medium created in the central Au+Au collisions. The lack of suppression in d+Au collisions makes it unlikely that initial state effects can explain the suppression in the central Au+Au collisions. PMID:12935010

    The results of temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) studies of H 2S adsorbed on both the clean Au(111) surface and partial sulfur-containing overlayers on the Au(111) surface are reported. These results show that H 2S will only weakly bind to the Au(111) surface and desorb molecularly from a single state starting at 165 K for the lowest fluences (a Redhead desorption energy of 9.8 ± 0.2 kcal · mol -1), then shifting to 125 K (a Redhead desorption energy of 7.3 ± 0.2 kcal · mol -1) prior to the buildup of a second-layer H 2S desorption feature at 103 K (a Redhead desorption energy of 6.0 ± 0.2 kcal · mol -1). TPD of H 2S adsorbed on a partial overlayer of a sulfur-containing species on the Au(111) surface, most likely SH (ads), showed a preference at low fluences for H 2S to either adsorb on clean Au sites or diffuse to clean sites shortly before desorption. SH groups were formed on the Au(111) surface by electron stimulated decomposition of adsorbed H 2S. These groups then reacted and desorbed in a broad feature over the range of 520 to 1000 K following a disproportionation reaction to produce H 2S (g) + S (ads).

    Biologically produced monometallic palladium nanoparticles (bio-Pd) have been shown to catalyze the dehalogenation of environmental contaminants, but fail to efficiently catalyze the degradation of other important recalcitrant halogenated compounds. This study represents the first report of biologically produced bimetallic Pd/Au nanoparticle catalysts. The obtained catalysts were tested for the dechlorination of diclofenac and trichloroethylene. When aqueous bivalent Pd(II) and trivalent Au(III) ions were both added to concentrations of 50 mg L{sup -1} and reduced simultaneously by Shewanella oneidensis in the presence of H{sub 2}, the resulting cell-associated bimetallic nanoparticles (bio-Pd/Au) were able to dehalogenate 78% of the initially added diclofenac after 24 h; in comparison, no dehalogenation was observed using monometallic bio-Pd or bio-Au. Other catalyst-synthesis strategies did not show improved dehalogenation of TCE and diclofenac compared with bio-Pd. Synchrotron-based X-ray diffraction, (scanning) transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy indicated that the simultaneous reduction of Pd and Au supported on cells of S. oneidensis resulted in the formation of a unique bimetallic crystalline structure. This study demonstrates that the catalytic activity and functionality of possibly environmentally more benign biosupported Pd-catalysts can be improved by coprecipitation with Au.

    A double periodic Fe1/Au/Fe2/Au multilayer with different Fe thicknesses was epitaxially grown on the MgO(001) substrate to investigate the magnetic structure of the Au spin polarization in an antiparallel alignment state of the Fe magnetizations. The establishment of the antiparallel alignment state at zero applied field was confirmed from the comparison of the magnetization curve measurement and simulation in the applied field along the [110] direction of the MgO substrate. Existence of the Au spin polarization orthogonal to the applied magnetic field was confirmed with resonant X-ray magnetic scattering (RXMS) measurements near the Au L3 absorption edge. Analysis of the RXMS pattern indicated that the magnetic depth profile of the spin polarization in the interior region of the Au layer was approximated to a square-wave shape, which suggests a ferromagnetic nature of the Au spin polarization sandwiched by the Fe layers.

    Antiproton production in heavy ion collisions reflects subtle interplay between initial production and absorption by nucleons. Because the AGS energies (10--20 A(center-dot)GeV/c) are close to the antiproton production threshold, antiproton may be sensitive to cooperative processes such as QGP and hadronic multi-step processes. On the other hand, antiproton has been proposed as a probe of baryon density due to large N(anti N) annihilation cross sections. Cascade models predict the maximum baryon density reaches about 10 times the normal nucleus density in central Au+Au collisions, where the strong antiproton absorption is expected. In this paper, the authors show systematic studies of antiproton production from p+A to Au+Au collisions.

    Results from new measurements of dynamical K/{pi} and p/{pi} ratio fluctuations are presented. Dynamical fluctuations in global conserved quantities such as baryon number, strangeness, or charge may be observed near a QCD critical point. The STAR experiment has previously acquired data in AuAu collisions at the energies {radical}s{sub NN} = 200, 130, 62.4, and 19.6 GeV and CuCu collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200, 62.4, and 22.4 GeV. The commencing of a QCD critical point search at RHIC has extended the reach of possible measurements of dynamical K/{pi} and p/{pi} ratio fluctuations from AuAu collisions to lower energies. New results are compared to previous measurements and to theoretical predictions from the UrQMD model.

    We report new STAR measurements of midrapidity yields for the ?, ?[over ¯], K(S)(0), ?(-), ?[over ¯](+), ?(-), ?[over ¯](+) particles in Cu+Cu collisions at ?S(NN)==200??GeV, and midrapidity yields for the ?, ?[over ¯], K(S)(0) particles in Au+Au at ?S(NN)==200??GeV. We show that, at a given number of participating nucleons, the production of strange hadrons is higher in Cu+Cu collisions than in Au+Au collisions at the same center-of-mass energy. We find that aspects of the enhancement factors for all particles can be described by a parametrization based on the fraction of participants that undergo multiple collisions. PMID:22401196

Single crystal X-ray studies establish that all of these phase regions have common cubic symmetry F{sub 4}3m and that their structures (MgCu{sub 4}Sn-type, an ordered derivative of MgCu{sub 2}) all feature three-dimensional networks of Au{sub 4} tetrahedra, in which the truncated tetrahedra are centered and capped by Ca/Au, Au/Bi, or Ca/Au/Bi mixtures to give 16-atom Friauf polyhedra. TB-LMTO-ASA and -COHP calculations also reveal that direct interactions between Ca-Au and Ca-Bi pairs of atoms are relatively weak and that the Bi-Au interactions in the unstable ideal CaAu{sub 4}Bi are antibonding in character at E{sub F} but that their bonding is optimized at {+-}1 e. Compositions between the five nonstoichiometric phases appear to undergo spinodal decompositions. The last phenomenon has been confirmed by HRTEM, STEM-HAADF, EPMA, and XRD studies of the nominal composition CaAu{sub 4.25}Bi{sub 0.75}. Its DTA analyses suggest that the phases resulting from spinodal decomposition have nearly the same melting point ({approx}807 C), as expected, and that they are interconvertible through peritectic reactions at {approx}717 C.

Single crystal X-ray studies establish that all of these phase regions have common cubic symmetry F{sub 4}3m and that their structures (MgCu{sub 4}Sn-type, an ordered derivative of MgCu{sub 2}) all feature three-dimensional networks of Au{sub 4} tetrahedra, in which the truncated tetrahedra are centered and capped by Ca/Au, Au/Bi, or Ca/Au/Bi mixtures to give 16-atom Friauf polyhedra. TB-LMTO-ASA and -COHP calculations also reveal that direct interactions between Ca-Au and Ca-Bi pairs of atoms are relatively weak and that the Bi-Au interactions in the unstable ideal CaAu{sub 4}Bi are antibonding in character at E{sub F} but that their bonding is optimized at {+-}1 e. Compositions between the five nonstoichiometric phases appear to undergo spinodal decompositions. The last phenomenon has been confirmed by HRTEM, STEM-HAADF, EPMA, and XRD studies of the nominal composition CaAu{sub 4.25}Bi{sub 0.75}. Its DTA analyses suggest that the phases resulting from spinodal decomposition have nearly the same melting point ({approx}807 C), as expected, and that they are interconvertible through peritectic reactions at {approx}717 C.

    A systematic study of energy spectra for light particles emitted at midrapidity from Au+Au collisions at E = (0.25-1.15) A GeV reveals a significant nonthermal component consistent with a collective radial flow. This component is evaluated as a function of bombarding energy and event centrality. Comparisons to quantum molecular dynamics and Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck models are made for different equations of state.

    A recently developed [Phys. Rev. A 79, 042707 (2009)] impact parameter coupled pseudostate approximation (CP) is applied to calculate triple differential cross sections for single ionization of He by C{sup 6+}, Au{sup 24+}, and Au{sup 53+} projectiles at impact energies of 100 and 2 MeV/amu for C{sup 6+} and 3.6 MeV/amu for Au{sup 24+} and Au{sup 53+}. For C{sup 6+}, satisfactory, but not perfect, agreement is found with experimental measurements in coplanar geometry, but there is substantial disagreement with data taken in a perpendicular plane geometry. The CP calculations firmly contradict a projectile-nucleus interaction model which has been used to support the perpendicular plane measurements. For Au{sup 24+} and Au{sup 53+}, there is a complete lack of accord with the available experiments. However, for Au{sup 24+} the theoretical position appears to be quite firm with clear indications of convergence in the CP approximation and very good agreement between CP and the completely different three-distorted-waves eikonal-initial-state (3DW-EIS) approximation. The situation for Au{sup 53+} is different. At the momentum transfers at which the measurements were made, there are doubts about the convergence of the CP approximation and a factor of 2 difference between the CP and 3DW-EIS predictions. The discord between theory and experiment is even greater with the experiment giving cross sections a factor of 10 larger than the theory. A study of the convergence of the CP approximation shows that it improves rapidly with reducing momentum transfer. As a consequence, lower-order cross sections than the triple are quite well converged and present an opportunity for a more reliable test of the experiment.

    We present the results of a systematic study of the shape of the pion distribution in coordinate space at freeze-out in Au+Au collisions at RHIC using two-pion Hanbury Brown-Twiss (HBT) interferometry. Oscillations of the extracted HBT radii vs. emission angle indicate sources elongated perpendicular to the reaction plane. The results indicate that the pressure and expansion time of the collision system are not sufficient to completely quench its initial shape.

    The measurement of J/? azimuthal anisotropy is presented as a function of transverse momentum for different centralities in Au+Au collisions at sqrt[s(NN)]=200 GeV. The measured J/? elliptic flow is consistent with zero within errors for transverse momentum between 2 and 10 GeV/c. Our measurement suggests that J/? particles with relatively large transverse momenta are not dominantly produced by coalescence from thermalized charm quarks, when comparing to model calculations.

    We present the first large-acceptance measurement of event-wise mean transverse momentum < p(t)> fluctuations for Au-Au collisions at nucleon-nucleon center-of-momentum collision energy root s(NN) = 130 GeV. The observed nonstatistical < p(t)> fluctuations substantially exceed in magnitude fluctuations expected from the finite number of particles produced in a typical collision. The r.m.s. fractional width excess of the event-wise < p(t)>

    We report charged particle pair correlation analyses in the space of Delta phi (azimuth) and Delta eta (pseudorapidity), for central Au+Au collisions at root s(NN)=200 GeV in the STAR detector. The analysis involves unlike-sign charged pairs and like-sign charged pairs, which are transformed into charge-dependent (CD) signals and charge-independent (CI) signals. We present detailed parametrizations of the data. A model

    We report on p-Lambda, p-(Lambda) over bar, (p) over bar-Lambda, and (p) over bar-(Lambda) over bar correlation functions constructed in central Au-Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV by the STAR experiment at RHIC. The proton and lambda source size is inferred from the p-Lambda and (p) over bar-(Lambda) over bar correlation functions. It is found to be smaller

    We report inclusive photon measurements about midrapidity (\\\\y\\\\<0.5) from Au-197+Au-197 collisions at roots(NN)=130 GeV at RHIC. Photon pair conversions were reconstructed from electron and positron tracks measured with the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) of the STAR experiment. With this method, an energy resolution of DeltaE\\/Eapproximate to2% at 0.5 GeV has been achieved. Reconstructed photons have also been used to measure

    The STAR Collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider reports measurements of azimuthal correlations of high transverse momentum (p(T)) charged hadrons in Au+Au collisions at higher p(T) than reported previously. As p(T) is increased, a narrow, back-to-back peak emerges above the decreasing background, providing a clear dijet signal for all collision centralities studied. Using these correlations, we perform a systematic

    We report on p-Lambda,p-Lambda¯,p¯-Lambda, and p¯-Lambda¯ correlation functions constructed in central Au-Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV by the STAR experiment at RHIC. The proton and lambda source size is inferred from the p-Lambda and p¯-Lambda¯ correlation functions. It is found to be smaller than the pion source size also measured by the STAR experiment at smaller transverse masses, in agreement

    The measurement of J/? azimuthal anisotropy is presented as a function of transverse momentum for different centralities in Au+Au collisions at ?sNN>/sub>=200 GeV. The measured J/? elliptic flow is consistent with zero within errors for transverse momentum between 2 and 10 GeV/c. Our measurement suggests that J/? particles with relatively large transverse momenta are not dominantly produced by coalescence from thermalized charm quarks, when comparing to model calculations.

    We present measurements of the charge balance function, from the charged particles, for diverse pseudorapidity and transverse momentum ranges in Au+Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV using the STAR detector at RHIC. We observe that the balance function is boost-invariant within the pseudorapidity coverage [?1.3,1.3]. The balance function properly scaled by the width of the observed pseudorapidity window does not depend

    Significant elemental segregation is shown to exist within individual hollow silver-gold (Ag-Au) bimetallic nanoparticles obtained from the galvanic reaction between Ag particles and AuCl4(-). Three-dimensional compositional mapping using energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) tomography within the scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) reveals that nanoparticle surface segregation inverts from Au-rich to Ag-rich as Au content increases. Maximum Au surface coverage was observed for nanoparticles with approximately 25 atom % Au, which correlates to the optimal catalytic performance in a three-component coupling reaction among cyclohexane carboxyaldehyde, piperidine, and phenylacetylene.

    Au nanoparticles and poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) composite films were prepared by electrodeposition of Au nanoparticles using pulse-current electrodeposition followed by the spin coating of P3HT and their enhanced electrochromic coloration was investigated. A relatively uniformed Au nanoparticle was obtained by the controlled electrodeposition on indium tin oxide (ITO) substrate and plasmon absorption band of Au nanoparticles were observed. Optical and electrochemical properties of Au/P3HT composite films were compared with the pure P3HT films. The enhanced electrochromic absorption of the composite films was observed due to the surface plasmon resonance of the Au nanoparticles. PMID:23858881

    In this report, we present the synthesis of heterojunction magnetite nanowires in alumina template and describe magnetic and electrical properties from a single nanowire device for spintronics applications. Heterojunction Au-Fe-Au nanowire arrays were electrodeposited in porous aluminum oxide templates, and an extensive and controlled heat treatment process converted Fe segment to nanocrystalline cubic magnetite phase with well-defined Au-Fe3O4 interfaces as confirmed by the transmission electron microscopy. Magnetic measurements revealed Verwey transition shoulder around 120 K and a room temperature coercive field of 90 Oe. Current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of a single Au-Fe3O4-Au nanowire have exhibited Ohmic behavior. Anomalous positive magnetoresistance of about 0.5% is observed on a single nanowire, which is attributed to the high spin polarization in nanowire device with pure Fe3O4 phase and nanocontact barrier. This work demonstrates the ability to preserve the pristine Fe3O4 and well defined electrode contact metal (Au)-magnetite interface, which helps in attaining high spin polarized current.

  4. Dynamical evolution of interplanetary magnetic fields and flows between 0.3 AU and 8.5 AU - Entrainment

    An analysis is presented of the radial evolution of interplanetary flows and associated magnetic fields between 0.3 AU and 8.5 AU using data from Helios 1 and B Voyager 1, respectively. The results indicate that in moving to 8 AU the largest corotating streams swept up the slower flows and shocks into a relatively thin region in which they coalesced to form a single large-amplitude compression. As a result of this process, referred to as entrainment, memory of the sources and flow configurations near the sun is lost, while small-scale features are erased as the flows move outward and energy is transferred from small scales to large scales.It is concluded that in the outer solar system the structure of the solar wind may be dominated by large scale pressure waves separated by several AU, while beyond several AU most of the compression waves are no longer driven by streams, and the compression waves expand freely. At large distances (greater than 25 AU) these compression waves will have interacted extensively with one another producing another state of the solar wind, with fewer large-scale nonuniformities and more small-scale nonuniformities.

    We described a versatile approach for the synthesis of Au/MCM-41, Pd/MCM-41 and Au-Pd/MCM-41 by the direct incorporation of the noble metals into the MCM-41 framework. The structural, textural and chemical properties were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), temperature-programmed reduction (TPR), N2-adsorption (BET and BJH methods), H2-chemisorption, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), transmission electron microscope (TEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The nanomaterials, being comprised of Au, Pd and Au-Pd nanoparticles and possessing high surface areas were applied as versatile and efficient catalysts in benzene, toluene and o-xylene (BTX) oxidation and in the steam reforming of ethanol for hydrogen production. The results revealed that the catalytic behavior in both processes was influenced by the experimental conditions and the nature of the catalyst employed. The Au-Pd/MCM-41 catalyst was the most active in the BTX total oxidation. On the basis of characterization data, it was proposed that the close contact between Pd and Au and the higher dispersion of Pd may be responsible for the enhanced activity of the bimetallic catalyst. However, the strong interaction between the noble metals did not improve the performance of the bimetallic catalyst in ethanol steam reforming, the Pd/MCM-41 catalyst being the most active and selective for hydrogen production.

  6. Correlations of Electrons from Heavy Flavor Decay with Hadrons in Au+Au and p+p Collisions

    Measurements of electrons from the decay of open-heavy flavor mesons have shown that the yields are suppressed in Au+Au collisions compared to expectations from binary-scaled p+p collisions. These measurements indicate that charm and bottom quarks interact with the hot-dense matter produced in heavy-ion collisions much more than expected. Here we extend these studies to two-particle correlations where one particle is an electron from the decay of a heavy-flavor meson and the other is a charged hadron from either the decay of the heavy meson or from jet fragmentation. These measurements provide more detailed information about the interactions between heavy quarks and the matter, such as whether the modifcation of the away-side-jet shape seen in hadron-hadron correlations is present when the trigger particle is from heavy-meson decay and whether the overall level of away-side-jet suppression is consistent. We statistically subtract correlations of electrons arising from background sources from the inclusive electron-hadron correlations and obtain two-particle azimuthal correlations at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ =200 GeV between electrons from heavy-flavor decay with charged hadrons in p+p and also first results in Au+Au collisions. We find the away-side-jet shape and yield to be modified in Au+Au collisions compared to p+p collisions.

  8. Extreme interplanetary rotational discontinuities at 1 AU

    Lepping, R. P.; Wu, C.-C.

    2005-11-01

    This study is concerned with the identification and description of a special subset of four Wind interplanetary rotational discontinuities (from an earlier study of 134 directional discontinuities by Lepping et al. (2003)) with some "extreme" characteristics, in the sense that every case has (1) an almost planar current sheet surface, (2) a very large discontinuity angle (?), (3) at least moderately strong normal field components (>0.8 nT), and (4) the overall set has a very broad range of transition layer thicknesses, with one being as thick as 50 RE and another at the other extreme being 1.6 RE, most being much thicker than are usually studied. Each example has a well-determined surface normal (n) according to minimum variance analysis and corroborated via time delay checking of the discontinuity with observations at IMP 8 by employing the local surface planarity. From the variance analyses, most of these cases had unusually large ratios of intermediate-to-minimum eigenvalues (?I/?min), being on average 32 for three cases (with a fourth being much larger), indicating compact current sheet transition zones, another (the fifth) extreme property. For many years there has been a controversy as to the relative distribution of rotational (RDs) to tangential discontinuities (TDs) in the solar wind at 1 AU (and elsewhere, such as between the Sun and Earth), even to the point where some authors have suggested that RDs with large ?Bn?s are probably not generated or, if generated, are unstable and therefore very rare. Some of this disagreement apparently has been due to the different selection criteria used, e.g., some allowed eigenvalue ratios (?I/?min) to be almost an order of magnitude lower than 32 in estimating n, usually introducing unacceptable error in n and therefore also in ?Bn?. However, we suggest that RDs may not be so rare at 1 AU, but good quality cases (where ?Bn? confidently exceeds the error in ?Bn?) appear to be uncommon, and further, cases of large ?Bn? may indeed be rare. Finally, the issue of estimating the number of RDs-to-TDs was revisited using the full 134 events of the original Lepping et al. (2003) study (which utilized the RDs' propagation speeds for this estimation, an unconventional approach) but now by considering only normal field components, the more conventional approach. This resulted in slightly different conclusions, depending on specific assumptions used, making the unconventional approach suspect.

    Au-rich polar intermetallics exhibit a wide variety of structural motifs, and this hexagonal-diamond-like gold host is unprecedented. The series Ba2Au6(Au,T)3 (T = Zn, Cd, Ga, In, or Sn), synthesized through fusion of the elements at 700-800 °C followed by annealing at 400-500 °C, occur in space group R3[overline]c (a ? 8.6-8.9 Å, c ? 21.9-22.6 Å, and Z = 6). Their remarkable structure, generated by just three independent atoms, features a hexagonal-diamond-like gold superstructure in which tunnels along the 3-fold axes are systematically filled by interstitial Ba atoms (blue) and triangles of disordered (Au,T)3 atoms (green) in 2:1 proportions. The Au/Zn mixing in the latter spans ~34 to 87% Zn, whereas the Au/Sn result is virtually invariant compositionally. Complementary bonding between the gold lattice and the disordered (Au,T)3 units is substantial and very regular. Bonding and charge density analyses indicate delocalized bonding within the gold host and the (Au,T)3 triangular units, and moderately polarized bonding between Ba and the electronegative framework. The new structure can also be viewed empirically as the result of an atom-by-triad [i.e., Ba by (Au,T)3 triangle] topological substitution in a BaAu2 (AlB2-type) superstructure. PMID:23805996

  10. Gold chloride clusters with Au(III) and Au(I) probed by FT-ICR mass spectrometry and MP2 theory.

    Microsolvated clusters of gold chloride are probed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and scalar relativistic electronic structure calculations. Electrospray ionization of aqueous AuCl3 leads to mononuclear clusters of types [AuCl2](+)(H2O)n (n = 0-4), [AuOHCl](+)(H2O)n (n = 0-1) and [AuCl2](+)(HCl)2(H2O)n (n = 0-4). In addition, strong ion signals due to dinuclear [Au2Cl5-xOHx](+)(H2O)n (x = 0-1) are present in ESI mass spectra of aqueous AuCl3, with the abundance of individual dinuclear species controlled by the concentration-dependent variation of the precursor complexes [AuCl2-xOHx](+)(H2O)n and AuCl3. Equilibrium structures, energies and thermodynamic properties of mono- and dinuclear gold clusters have been predicted using MP2 and CCSD(T) theory, and these data have been applied to examine the influence of microsolvation on cluster stability. Specifically, results from CCSD(T) calculations indicate that non-covalently bound ion-neutral complexes Au(+)(Cl2)(H2O)n, with formal Au(I), are the dominant forms of mononuclear gold with n = 0-2, while higher hydrates (n > 2) are covalently bound [AuCl2](+)(H2O)n complexes in which gold exists as Au(III). MP2 calculations show that the lowest energy structure of dinuclear gold is an ion-molecule cluster [Au2Cl(Cl2)2](+) consisting of a single-bridged digold-chloronium ion bound end-on to two dichlorine ligands, with two higher energy isomers, single-bridged [Au2Cl3(Cl2)](+) and double-bridged [Au2Cl5](+) clusters. Finally, AuAu interactions in the singly-bridged clusters [Au2Cl(Cl2)2](+)(H2O)n and [Au2Cl3(Cl2)](+)(H2O)n are examined employing a wide range of computational tools, including natural bond order (NBO) analysis and localized orbital locator (LOL) profiles.

    Measurements of the midrapidity transverse energy distribution, $d\\Et/d\\eta$, are presented for $p$$+$$p$, $d$$+$Au, and Au$+$Au collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=200$ GeV and additionally for Au$+$Au collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}=62.4$ and 130 GeV. The $d\\Et/d\\eta$ distributions are first compared with the number of nucleon participants $N_{\\rm part}$, number of binary collisions $N_{\\rm coll}$, and number of constituent-quark participants $N_{qp}$ calculated from a Glauber model based on the nuclear geometry. For Au$+$Au, $\\mean{d\\Et/d\\eta}/N_{\\rm part}$ increases with $N_{\\rm part}$, while $\\mean{d\\Et/d\\eta}/N_{qp}$ is approximately constant for all three energies. This indicates that the two component ansatz, $dE_{T}/d\\eta \\propto (1-x) N_{\\rm part}/2 + x N_{\\rm coll}$, which has been used to represent $E_T$ distributions, is simply a proxy for $N_{qp}$, and that the $N_{\\rm coll}$ term does not represent a hard-scattering component in $E_T$ distributions. The $dE_{T}/d\\eta$ distributions of Au$+$Au and $d$$+$Au are then calculated from the measured $p$$+$$p$ $E_T$ distribution using two models that both reproduce the Au$+$Au data. However, while the number-of-constituent-quark-participant model agrees well with the $d$$+$Au data, the additive-quark model does not.

    The AuScope geodetic Very Long Baseline Interferometry array consists of three new 12-m radio telescopes and a correlation facility in Australia. The telescopes at Hobart (Tasmania), Katherine (Northern Territory) and Yarragadee (Western Australia) are co-located with other space geodetic techniques including Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and gravity infrastructure, and in the case of Yarragadee, satellite laser ranging (SLR) and Doppler Orbitography and Radiopositioning Integrated by Satellite (DORIS) facilities. The correlation facility is based in Perth (Western Australia). This new facility will make significant contributions to improving the densification of the International Celestial Reference Frame in the Southern Hemisphere, and subsequently enhance the International Terrestrial Reference Frame through the ability to detect and mitigate systematic error. This, combined with the simultaneous densification of the GNSS network across Australia, will enable the improved measurement of intraplate deformation across the Australian tectonic plate. In this paper, we present a description of this new infrastructure and present some initial results, including telescope performance measurements and positions of the telescopes in the International Terrestrial Reference Frame. We show that this array is already capable of achieving centimetre precision over typical long-baselines and that network and reference source systematic effects must be further improved to reach the ambitious goals of VLBI2010.

    We report the STAR measurements of dielectron (e+e-) production at midrapidity (|yee|<1) in Au +Au collisions at ?sNN =200 GeV. The measurements are evaluated in different invariant mass regions with a focus on 0.30-0.76 (?-like), 0.76-0.80 (?-like), and 0.98-1.05 (?-like) GeV /c2. The spectrum in the ?-like and ?-like regions can be well described by the hadronic cocktail simulation. In the ?-like region, however, the vacuum ? spectral function cannot describe the shape of the dielectron excess. In this range, an enhancement of 1.77±0.11(stat)±0.24(syst)±0.33(cocktail) is determined with respect to the hadronic cocktail simulation that excludes the ? meson. The excess yield in the ?-like region increases with the number of collision participants faster than the ? and ? yields. Theoretical models with broadened ? contributions through interactions with constituents in the hot QCD medium provide a consistent description of the dilepton mass spectra for the measurement presented here and the earlier data at the Super Proton Synchrotron energies.

  19. XANES and EXAFS study of Au-substituted YBa2Cu3O(7-delta)

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Ruckman, Mark W.; Hepp, Aloysius F.

    1990-01-01

    The near-edge structure (XANES) of the Au L3 and Cu K edges of YBa2Au(0.3)Cu(2.7)O(7-delta) was studied. X ray diffraction suggests that Au goes on the Cu(1) site and XANES shows that this has little effect on the oxidation state of the remaining copper. The gold L3 edge develops a white line feature whose position lies between that of trivalent gold oxide (Au2O3) and monovalent potassium gold cyanide (KAu(CN)2) and whose intensity relative to the edge step is smaller than in the two reference compounds. The L3 EXAFS for Au in the superconductor resembles that of Au2O3. However, differences in the envelope of the Fourier filtered component for the first shell suggest that the local structure of the Au in the superconductor is not equivalent to Au2O3.

  20. The Brown Dwarf Desert at 75-1200 AU

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    McCarthy, C.; Zuckerman, B.

    2004-05-01

    We present results of a comprehensive infrared coronagraphic search for substellar companions to nearby stars. The research consisted of: 1.) a 178 star survey at Steward and Lick Observatories, with optical followup from Keck Observatory, capable of detecting companions with masses greater than 30 MJupiter, and semi-major axes between about 140 to 1200 AU. 2.) a 102 star survey using the Keck telescope, capable of detecting extrasolar brown dwarfs and planets typically more massive than 10 MJupiter, with semi-major axes between about 75 and 300 AU. Only one brown dwarf companion was detected, and zero planets. The frequency of brown dwarf companions to G, K & M stars orbiting between 75 and 300 AU is measured to be 1±1%, the most precise measurement of this quantity to date. The frequency of massive (> 30MJupiter) brown dwarf companions at 120-1200 AU is found to be 0.7±0.7%. The frequency of giant planet companions with masses between 5 and 10 MJupiter orbiting between 75 and 300 AU is measured here for the first time to be no more than ˜ 3%. Together with other surveys that encompass a wide range of orbital separations, these results imply that substellar objects with masses between 12 and 75 MJupiter form only rarely as companions to stars. Theories of star formation which could explain these data are only now beginning to emerge. We acknowledge support from NASA Astrobiology Institute.
