Atmospheric black carbon makes an important but poorly quantified contribution to the warming of the global atmosphere. Laboratory and modelling studies have shown that the addition of non-black-carbon materials to black-carbon particles may enhance the particles light absorption by 50 to 60% by refracting and reflecting light. Real-world experimental evidence for this lensing effect is scant and conflicting, showing that absorption enhancements can be less than 5% or as large as 140%. Here we present simultaneous quantifications of the composition and optical properties of individual atmospheric black-carbon particles. We show that particles with a mass ratio of non-black carbon to black carbon of less than 1.5, which is typical of fresh traffic sources, are best represented as having no absorption enhancement. In contrast, black-carbon particles with a ratio greater than 3, which is typical of biomass-burning emissions, are best described assuming optical lensing leading to an absorption ...
Absorption coefficients measured in reverberation chambers, Sabine absorption coefficients, suffer from two major problems. Firstly, they sometimes exceed unity. Secondly, the reproducibility of the Sabine absorption coefficients is quite poor, meaning that the Sabine absorption coefficients vary largely depending on the test room. Several conversion methods for porous absorbers from the Sabine absorption coefficient to the random incidence absorption coefficient were suggested by considering the finite size of a test specimen and non-uniformly incident energy onto the specimen, which turned out to be successful in terms of the trueness. However, the reproducibility of the converted random incidence absorption coefficients has not been investigated. The present study mainly focuses on the reproducibility of the random incidence absorption coefficients that are converted from the Sabine absorption coefficients measured in 13 different chambers in a recent round-robin test, revealing that the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Distribution of calcium absorption in middle-aged women. AU - Heaney, R. P.. AU - Recker, R. R.. PY - 1986/1/1. Y1 - 1986/1/1. N2 - Distribution of true fractional absorption of calcium in estrogen-deprived, nonosteoporotic, middle-aged women was examined in 273 person-studies, using a double-tracer method. Fractional absorption averaged 0.266 (± 0.096). Calcium intake averaged 0.802 g/day (± 0.419) and urine calcium, 0.144 g/day (± 0.062). Fractional absorption was inversely correlated with intake. Using parameters of the regression equation for the two variables, each absorption value was adjusted to the mean intake of the group so that absorption could be evaluated apart from the effect of intake. The distribution of such diet-adjusted values revealed that 55% of these estrogen-deprived women had insufficient absorption to maintain calcium balance at an intake equal to the 1980 RDA. Nearly one-fourth would still be in negative balance at an intake of 1.5 g/day. Since urine ...

Aims. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) sausage tube waves are excited in magnetic flux tubes by p-mode forcing. These tube waves carry energy away from the p-mode cavity which results in a source of absorption. We wish to see the effect of an ensemble of randomly distributed thin magnetic flux tubes on the absorption of p-modes for the model plage region and also study the effect of the spacial weighting function on the theoretically calculated absorption coefficients. Methods. We calculate the absorption coefficients of p modes for a model plage, assumed to consist of an ensemble of many thin magnetic flux tubes with randomly distributed plasma properties. Each magnetic flux tube in the ensemble is modelled as axisymmetric, non-interacting, vertically oriented and untwisted. Results. We find that the magnitude and the form of the absorption coefficient is sensitive to the plasma-beta of the tubes which is consistent with previous work. Both the random distribution used to model the ensemble of flux ...
The absorption coefficient, α, in a variety of semiconductor materials at 300K as a function of the vacuum wavelength of light.. The above graph shows that even for those photons which have an energy above the band gap, the absorption coefficient is not constant, but still depends strongly on wavelength. The probability of absorbing a photon depends on the likelihood of having a photon and an electron interact in such a way as to move from one energy band to another. For photons which have an energy very close to that of the band gap, the absorption is relatively low since only those electrons directly at the valence band edge can interact with the photon to cause absorption. As the photon energy increases, not just the electrons already having energy close to that of the band gap can interact with the photon. Therefore, a larger number of electrons can interact with the photon and result in the photon being absorbed.. The absorption coefficient, α, is related to the extinction coefficient, k, ...
A ported connecting tube is interposed between the gas delivery hose of an anesthesia gas delivery machine and the outlet of an endotracheal tube. One end of a flexible conduit is inserted into the port in the connecting tube and the other end is connected to a breath alcohol meter thereby placing the sampling chamber of the meter in flow registration with the endotracheal tube. During operative hysteroscopy, a refrigerated solution containing, optimally 1% Ethanol is used to irrigate the surgery site, and the patients expired breath is periodically sampled to determine the presence and quantity of ethanol therein. The presence of ethanol indicates systemic absorption of the irrigation fluid by the patient, which absorption may cause undesirable operative and post operative complications in the patient.
While brown carbon (BrC) might play a substantially important role in radiative forcing, an estimation of its light absorption contribution with high-time resolution is still challenging. In this study, a multi-wavelength (370-950 nm) Aethalometer was applied to obtain the wavelength dependent light absorption coefficient (σabs) of aerosols both before and after being heated to 250°C. An improved absorption Ångström exponent (AAE)-based method was developed to evaluate the contribution of BrC to light absorption at a wavelength of 370 nm (σabs,BrC/σabs,370nm). The σabs,BC at 370 nm was determined from the field measured AAE values for the wavelengths from 880 to 950 nm with a one-hour resolution. The simultaneous measurements of heated aerosols help confirm the negligible influence of BrC on the σabs values across the range of 880-950 nm. Meanwhile, σabs,BrC/σabs,370nm was also estimated with previously reported methods by assuming that the AAE was equal to 1 (Method I) as well as a new

In order to fully understand stellar structure, it is necessary to know the opacity, as it influences the behavior of radiative transfer within the stellar interior. Opacity plays an important role in the onset of convection as well as driving stellar winds in cool stars. Opacity is the interaction of light with the surrounding medium, with major contributors being atoms, molecules and grains. Tables of average opacity values are highly dependent on the composition and if any changes are made, a whole new set of tables must be recalculated. Using molecular line lists, a computer program was written to calculate the bound-bound transition cross-section absorption coefficients for eight different molecular species, including C2, CH, CN , CO, C2H2, H2O, HCN , and T iO. Molecular line lists, like H2O, consist of hundreds of millions of lines of data that slow down the process of calculation. Since the frequency specific opacity is dependent on temperature, the molecular absorption coefficients must ...
Measurements and predictions have been made of the absorption coefficient and the surface acoustic impedance of poroelastic plates clamped in a large impedance tube and separated from the rigid termination by an air gap. The measured and predicted absorption coefficient and surface impedance spectra exhibit low frequency peaks. The peak frequencies observed in the absorption coefficient are close to those predicted and measured in the deflection spectra of the clamped poroelastic plates. The influences of the rigidity of the clamping conditions and the width of the air gap have been investigated. Both influences are found to be important. Increasing the rigidity of clamping reduces the low frequency absorption peaks compared with those measured for simply supported plates or plates in an intermediate clamping condition. Results for a closed cell foam plate and for two open cell foam plates made from recycled materials are presented. For identical clamping conditions and width of air gap, the ...
In some previous papers it has been shown by the author and others that saturated compounds of most substances in the vapour state show continuous absorption. A typical example is SO3-vapour, which was recently studied by the author and which enabled him to make an accurate estimation of the heat of dissociation of oxygen. In the present work, the absorption spectrum of N2O was investigated with a view to determining the heat of dissociation of nitrogen. Leifson was the first to investigate the absorption spectrum of N2O gas and found that the gas shows no selective absorption in the Schumann region. He states that the absorption is in the form of two continuous bands, the first extending from λ 2000 to λ 1680 and the second from λ 1550 beyond the range of observation. Recently Wulf and Melvin showed that when N2O is illuminated with light of wave-length λ 2300, it is decomposed photochemically into NO and N; they also noticed that N2O possesses no band absorption. ...
Thank you, Coulomb. The new bateries are lead acid, not AGMs. The target voltages are taken from the 3-Step+ manual. I read the content at the link you provided. Thank you again. Is it corrct to assume that after the absorption time has expired based on the screw setting, the bateries will continue to charge below the gassing voltage and last longer? Thus on a long motoring leg, if I understood correctly, it would make sense to dial the absortion time DOWN? Assuming charging at anchor or on a 1-2 hour motoring leg, what would be a good target absorption time and how many turns of the screw starting from full-stop down (counterclockwise) would it take to get there ...
Optical absorption measurements at 300 K and 77K in the 2.5-12 micrometer range are presented for epitaxial PbTe films grown on BaF2 substrates. Effects due to carrier concentrations, growth conditions, and possible impurities are discussed. In high carrier concentration films p or 10 to the 18th powercc the absorption is free-carrier limited, while in low p material the absorption appears to be impurity limited. The impurity limited absorption, which shows wide variations between samples, correlates with the observation of Cl in the ion back-scattering spectra. The lowest observed 10 micrometer loss is 16cm. A threshold analysis on PbTe diode lasers made with annealed samples indicates the threshold gain is 10-20cm, about a factor of 10 below that obtained in similar laser in unannealed films.

Experimental Designs are used to study, quantify, identify or separate the components of different chemical substances. Experimental designs can be categorized as being classical or instrumental. Classical methods focus more on qualitative analysis, where the odor/color of a chemical compound may be considered, or whether any precipitate forms during a chemical reaction. On the other hand, instrumental methods focus more on quantitative analysis. By using complex instruments, variables such as light absorption or conductivity are considered. These analytical methods are conducted to complement the purely theoretical side of chemistry, in order to either prove a law or apply it. For example, measuring light absorption may be used in the application of Beer-Lamberts Law, which relates light absorption to concentration of a chemical substance. By finding out the light absorption through instrumental methods, the concentration of the substance can be indirectly determined through this law. Thus, ...

A Student Researched Lab Experiment where the objective to observe the effects of substituents on the absorption spectra of molecules.
We present the results of an experimental and theoretical study of the gain (or absorption) experienced by a weak probe beam propagating through a sodium vapor in the presence of an intense pump field that is nearly resonant with the 3s → 3p atomic transition. The probe-transmission spectrum includes three distinct features that result from the modification of the atomic-level structure by the ac-Stark effect. Two of these features can lead to amplification of the probe wave. We measured the dependence of the probe spectrum on the detuning of the pump beam from resonance and on the pressure of a helium buffer gas. The experimentally obtained spectra are in good agreement with the predictions of a theoretical model based on the solution of the density-matrix equations of motion for a two-level atom and including the effects of Doppler broadening. The maximum gain measured in these experiments occurs at one of the Rabi sidebands and leads to a 38-fold increase in the intensity of the probe wave. ...
Abstract. Atmospheric absorption in the O2 A-band (12 950-13 200 cm−1) offers a unique opportunity to retrieve aerosol extinction profiles from space-borne measurements due to the large dynamic range of optical thickness in that spectral region. Absorptions in strong O2 lines are saturated; therefore, any radiance measured in these lines originates from scattering in the upper part of the atmosphere. Outside of O2 lines, or in weak lines, the atmospheric column absorption is small, and light penetrates to lower atmospheric layers, allowing for the quantification of aerosols and other scatterers near the surface.. While the principle of aerosol profile retrieval using O2 A-band absorption from space is well-known, a thorough quantification of the information content, i.e., the amount of vertical profile information that can be obtained, and the dependence of the information content on the spectral resolution of the measurements, has not been thoroughly conducted. Here, we use the linearized ...
