During photosynthesis, sunlight is efficiently captured by light-harvesting complexes, and the excitation energy is then funneled towards the reaction centre. These photosynthetic excitation energy transfer (EET) pathways are complex and proceed in a multistep fashion. Ultrafast two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2DES) is an important tool to study EET processes in photosynthetic complexes. However, the multistep EET processes can only be indirectly inferred by correlating different cross peaks from a series of 2DES spectra. Here we directly observe multistep EET processes in LHCII using ultrafast fifth-order three-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (3DES). We measure cross peaks in 3DES spectra of LHCII that directly indicate energy transfer from excitons in the chlorophyll b (Chl b) manifold to the low-energy level chlorophyll a (Chl a) via mid-level Chl a energy states. This new spectroscopic technique allows scientists to move a step towards mapping the complete complex EET processes ...
The study of the photosynthetic processes has always had a particular relevance in spectroscopy because of its possible applications in light harvesting and energy storage. Since the light-harvesting pigment-protein complexes have this functional role in nature, many of studies have been focused on understanding photophysical processes occurring in these systems. Our work aims to study the spectroscopic properties of the best known pigment involved in the photosynthesis, Chlorophyll a, and their changes with different solvents. The study of the pigment was conducted by linear spectroscopic studies for water-solvent mixtures, while by the nonlinear technique 2D spectroscopy was applied for pure solvent. The theory and technique of 2D spectroscopy is described. The properties of solvents strongly influence the environment felt by the molecule and its capability of aggregate formation. The solvent properties that were found to be most relevant for our study were viscosity, H-bonding formation and ...

Fleming has compared 2-D electronic spectroscopy to the technique used in the early super-heterodyne radios, where an incoming high frequency radio signal was converted by an oscillator to a lower frequency for more controllable amplification and better reception. In the case of 2-D electronic spectroscopy, scientists can track the transfer of energy between molecules that are coupled (connected) through their electronic and vibrational states in any photoactive system, macromolecular assembly or nanostructure.. Fleming and his group first described 2-D electronic spectroscopy in a 2005 Nature paper, when they used the technique to observe electronic couplings in the Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) photosynthetic light-harvesting protein, a molecular complex in green sulphur bacteria. Said Engel, "The 2005 paper was the first biological application of this technique, now we have used 2-D electronic spectroscopy to discover a new phenomenon in photosynthetic systems.

Hyperspectral imaging is emerging as a promising approach for plant disease identification. The large and possibly redundant information contained in hyperspectral data cubes makes deep learning based identification of plant diseases a natural fit. Here, we deploy a novel 3D deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) that directly assimilates the hyperspectral data. Furthermore, we interrogate the learnt model to produce physiologically meaningful explanations. We focus on an economically important disease, charcoal rot, which is a soil borne fungal disease that affects the yield of soybean crops worldwide. Based on hyperspectral imaging of inoculated and mock-inoculated stem images, our 3D DCNN has a classification accuracy of 95.73% and an infected class F1 score of 0.87. Using the concept of a saliency map, we visualize the most sensitive pixel locations, and show that the spatial regions with visible disease symptoms are overwhelmingly chosen by the model for classification. We also find that the most

We measure several fundamental electronic properties of molecules such as charge transfer and electronic delocalization using a technique known as Stark spectroscopy. Stark spectroscopy involves applying large electric fields to molecules in films or matrices and analyzing the effects of the field perturbation on the absorption or emission spectrum. We have recently focused on the properties of MEH-PPV and other molecules used to make to organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Stark spectroscopy reveals the mechanism by which a large applied electric field, such as those present in OLEDs, produces undesirable emission quenching and suggests strategies for minimizing this loss of device efficiency through modifications of the polymer structure..

There are loads of situations when spectrum analysis can be helpful during mixdown, but there are a few things to bear in mind if you want to take full advantage of it. The first thing is that the analysers bundled with most DAW systems arent high-resolution enough, so check out some of the much better third-party options. Voxengos SPAN is a good piece of cross-platform freeware, for example, although I tend to use Schwas affordable payware Schope myself.. The first big analysis application at mixdown highlights overall mix-tonality imbalances that your monitoring hasnt alerted you to. Although this is clearly relevant to budget setups with budget monitors and uncontrolled acoustics, even pros like Joe Chiccarelli and Eric Rosse talk about using spectrum analysis in this way. However, every spectrum analyser seems to display things in a different way, so you need to get to know how your favourite records look on screen before you can come to any meaningful conclusions about your own work.

The spectrum pane is similar to the one you can see in Chanalyzer, a spectrum analysis application by MetaGeek that comes with Wi-Spy. By default, the Channels and Spectrum pane displays one or two planar spectrum graphs for single- and dual-band Wi-Spy models, respectively. The appearance of the graphs can be controlled via the context menu. Select 2.4 GHz, 5.0 GHz, or Dual to have the spectrum pane display one of the single frequency bands or two bands simultaneously (5.0 GHz and Dual are available only if you have a dual-band Wi-Spy model.) Select Current Level to display a line that shows the current signal amplitude; select Max Level to display a line that shows the maximum signal amplitude. The X-axis item allows you to select the measurement units of the horizontal axis; you can choose between Frequency in MHz and Channel numbers. By enabling the Waterfall view, you can have the application graph amplitude over time. Select 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 of the window size to adjust the area of the ...
but the nature of this approximation is typically determined by characteristics of audio perception. Best results are usually obtained by formulating this as an FIR filter design problem (see Chapter 4). In general, both time-domain and frequency-domain specifications are needed. (Recall the potentially problematic impulses in the Dolph-Chebyshev window shown in Fig.3.33 when its length was long and ripple level was high). Equivalently, both magnitude and phase specifications are necessary in the frequency domain. A window transform can generally be regarded as the frequency response of a lowpass filter having a stop band corresponding to the side lobes and a pass band corresponding to the main lobe (or central section of the main lobe). Optimal lowpass filters require a transition region from the pass band to the stop band. For spectrum analysis windows, it is natural to define the entire main lobe as transition region. That is, the pass-band width is zero. Alternatively, the pass-band ...
I need to measure frequency of a low level signal in the range 300kHz to 500kHz with the frquency either displayed numerically or available to process in an automated PC test setup to give a pass/fail result. Currently I use an expensive hardware spectrum analyser with a human interpreter. The spectrum analysis software available for the picoscopes looks very basic and appears to always run from zero up to the maximum selected frequency. Question 1: can the frequency axis be displayed with user selectable start and stop frequencies like a normal hardware analyser? Question 2: Are there marker peak-find functions available with live readout or data-out that can be used in PC ATE ...
This thesis presents the non-invasive use of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) to provide information about the biochemical composition of living tissue. During DRS measurements, the incident, visible light is partially absorbed by chromophores but also scattered in the tissue before being remitted.. Human skin and heart, the main tissue objects in this thesis, are dependent on a sufficient inflow of oxygenized blood, and outflow of metabolic byproducts. This process could be monitored by DRS using the spectral fingerprints of the most important tissue chromophores, oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin.. The Beer-Lambert law was used to produce models for the DRS and has thus been a foundation for the analyses throughout this work. Decomposition into the different chromophores was performed using least square fitting and tabulated data for chromophore absorptivity.. These techniques were used to study skin tissue erythema induced by a provocation of an applied heat load on EMLA-treated skin. ...
I tried using a Sound Blaster Z PCIe card in conjunction with spectrum analysis software but the results were dissapointing. The SB Z appears to add a fair amount of distortion (mainly second harmonic) to signals feeding the line input. I then tried an old SB Audigy 2 PCI card in another PC. The results were much better. Does anyone know why this should be? My own theory is that the SB Z shares a single input jack for line input and mic input. That must mean there is some variable gain

A method and device for detecting dichroic and/or birefringent narrow spectral features in a sample is described. The method includes the steps of providing a beam of light having an optical frequency bandwidth which is narrow compared to the width of the narrow spectral feature and having a center frequency ωc which lies near the narrow spectral feature, polarization phase modulating a beam of light with a single RF frequency to provide a pure FM spectrum having upper and lower sidebands in which either the carrier and sidebands have been polarized with respect to one another, exposing the sample containing the narrow spectral feature to the polarized modulated light so that the FM sidebands probe the narrow spectral feature, polarization analyzing and then photodetecting the light emerging from the sample to detect a RF beat at the specific RF frequency used for the polarization phase modulation, and electronically monitoring the amplitude of the RF beat signal to indicate the strength of the narrow

We explore the use of Monte-Carlo-model-based methods for the analysis of fluorescence and diffuse reflectance spectra measured from breast cells. the difference in model selection by individual researchers, and this was the only difference in the model 1572414-83-5 supplier parameters for fitted the diffuse reflectance spectra of units 1 and 2 and arranged 3. However, the absorption due to NADH only was found to account for only 0 to 3% normally of the total absorption across the wavelength range of 350 to 600 nm, having a imply of 0.4% and a standard deviation of 2%. This indicated that NADH did not contribute significantly to the absorption with this wavelength range, and the absorption and scattering properties from the three units of cells spectra are still similar. The absorption properties yielded from your model and used in further data analysis then include represents the contribution and then represents the fractional fluorescence contribution from an individual component to that ...
Planned hyperspectral satellite missions and the decreased revisit time of multispectral imaging offer the potential for data fusion to leverage both the spectral resolution of hyperspectral sensors and the temporal resolution of multispectral constellations. Hyperspectral imagery can also be used to better understand fundamental properties of multispectral data. In this analysis, we use five flight lines from the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) archive with coincident Landsat 8 acquisitions over a spectrally diverse region of California to address the following questions: (1) How much of the spectral dimensionality of hyperspectral data is captured in multispectral data?; (2) Is the characteristic pyramidal structure of the multispectral feature space also present in the low order dimensions of the hyperspectral feature space at comparable spatial scales?; (3) How much variability in rock and soil substrate endmembers (EMs) present in hyperspectral data is captured by ...

A means for intracavity sum frequency generation is described in which a er operates simultaneously, cw, at two wavelengths where the net gain at one wavelength is substantially lower than that at the other. The optical alignment of the resonator provides a region where both fundamental wavelengths are overlapped, and another region where both feedback paths are spatially distinct. An active feedback mirror is located in the path of the lower net gain laser transition to provide optical amplification at that wavelength. The laser resonator further contains a sum frequency generating crystal for intracavity sum frequency generation of the two fundamental wavelengths. The sum frequency generating crystal is placed near a laser resonator cavity mode waist in the region where both wavelengths are spatially superimposed, producing the sum frequency of the two wavelengths. An intracavity polarization rotator provides the appropriate orientation of the polarization of the two fundamental wavelengths in the
Surface-enhanced IR-visible sum frequency generation (SFG) was studied using Ag and Au films over nanospheres (AgFON and AuFON), which provided large area of reproducible nanoscale structures with well-defined morphology. SFG vibrational spectra for a self-assembled monolayer of octadecanethiol were investigated on spheres with diameters ranging from 300 nm to 620 nm. With an input wavelength of 532 nm, a sphere diameter near 360 nm produced the maximum enhancement, which was consistent with the localized surface-plasmon resonant wavelength identified by minimum reflectivity. The measured second-order susceptibility for the asymmetric CH3 stretch mode of octadecanethiol was enhanced by up to 27 times on AgFON, which corresponded to an SFG enhancement factor of similar to 730. The SFG enhancement factor for AuFON was a quarter of that from AgFON. The SFG enhancement factor for the symmetric CH3 mode was about 10 times smaller than that for the asymmetric CH3 mode. This difference can be explained ...
Dielectric spectroscopy (DS) of living biological cells is based on the analysis of the complex dielectric permittivity of cells suspended in a physiological medium. It provides knowledge on the polarization-relaxation response of cells to external electric field as function of the excitation frequency. This response is strongly affected by both structural and molecular properties of cells and therefore, can reveal rare insights on cell physiology and behaviour. This study demonstrates the mapping potential of DS after cytoplasmatic and membranal markers for cell-based screening analysis. The effect of membrane permittivity and cytoplasm conductivity was examined using tagged MBA and MDCK cell lines respectively. Comparing the permittivity spectra of tagged and native cell lines reveals clear differences between the analyzed suspensions. In addition, differences on the matching dielectric properties of cells were obtained. Those findings support the high distinction resolution and sensitivity of DS
The diffractive features of angular distribution have been investigated by analyzing the experimental data for a set of elastic scattering processes of {sup 7}Li by different target nuclei at different laboratory energies. Both Frahn-Venter and McIntyre models are used to analyze experimental data of angular distribution for elastic scattering processes. The theoretical models can reasonably reproduce the general pattern of the data. Some geometrical parameters for colliding nuclei have been obtained from the elastic scattering processes. It is found that interpretation of the diffractive features of the data is model-independent. The values of extracted parameters, from adopted models, are found comparable to each other and to those of others. The total reaction cross section is correlated to the incident laboratory energy for each scattering and values of total reaction cross section are found comparable with those of others. ...

We have observed a new mechanism for photon-gated spectral hole burning, donor-acceptor electron transfer, in a material composed of a zinc-tetrabenzoporphyrin derivative (donor) with chloroform acceptors in poly(methyl methacrylate) thin films. Gated holes form when we simultaneously excite the donor 0-0 singlet absorption (630 nm) and the donor triplet-triplet absorption (350-550 nm), with the largest gating enhancement (,30) occurring for gating light near 480 nm. The gating action spectrum and the photoproduct spectrum confirm that the mechanism is electron transfer from an excited triplet of the porphyrin donor to the chloroform acceptor. This result opens up a new class of materials for photon gating that should be of interest for frequency-domain optical storage applications as well as high-resolution spectroscopy of electron transfer processes in solids.. © 1987 Optical Society of America.

Drusen, the hallmark lesions of age related macular degeneration (AMD), are biochemically heterogeneous and the identification of their biochemical distribution is key to the understanding of AMD. Yet the challenges are to develop imaging technology and analytics, which respect the physical generation of the hyperspectral signal in the presence of noise, artifacts, and multiple mixed sources while maximally exploiting the full data dimensionality to uncover clinically relevant spectral signatures. This paper reports on the statistical analysis of hyperspectral signatures of drusen and anatomical regions of interest using snapshot hyperspectral imaging and non-negative matrix factorization (NMF). We propose physical meaningful priors as initialization schemes to NMF for finding low-rank decompositions that capture the underlying physiology of drusen and the macular pigment. Preliminary results show that snapshot hyperspectral imaging in combination with NMF is able to detect biochemically ...
With 1.6 million deaths per year, lung cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. One reason for this high number is the absence of a preventive medical examination method. Many diagnoses occur in a late cancer stage with a low survival rate. An early detection could significantly decrease the mortality. In recent decades, certain substances in human breath have been linked to certain diseases. Different studies show that it is possible to distinguish between lung cancer patients and a healthy control group by analyzing the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in their breath. We developed a sensor based on photoacoustic spectroscopy for six of the most relevant VOCs linked to lung cancer. As a radiation source, the sensor uses an optical-parametric oscillator (OPO) in a wavelength region from 3.2 µm to 3.5 µm. The limits of detection for a single substance range between 5 ppb and 142 ppb. We also measured high resolution absorption spectra of the biomarkers compared to the data currently

Optical Spectroscopy has shown promise as a fundamental characterization tool for carbon nanotubes (CNTs). With the potential of CNTs being utilized for aerospace applications, in-situ techniques including temperature and strain measurements with spectroscopy, are gaining significance. These techniques will provide valuable information to advance design and tailoring of CNT reinforcements in composites for maximum strength or damping. Development of these in-situ techniques allow for the study of the effects of external parameters on the spectra of CNTs. The results from these in-situ studies can further be used to develop non-invasive measurement capabilities to establish the integrity of CNT reinforced materials. In this study, changes in the peaks width, intensity, area, and peak location were analyzed under an expansive in-situ temperature range, using a novel deconvolution and fitting algorithm. The findings are significant to the development of optical spectroscopy techniques as characterization

When polymer power cables were introduced into mediumvoltage applications in the late 1960s, the degradationphenomenon later referred to aswater treeingwas still unknown. However, this changedwithin a relatively short space of time. Just 5-10 years afterthese first polymer applications, faults began to appear thatcould be attributed to the new phenomenon-water treeing. Sincethen, cable manufacturers have been improving their designsgradually, and cables produced today are assumed to have muchlower susceptibility to water trees. However, water treeing isstill assumed to be the most important degradation process inthese applications.. There are huge amounts of polymer cable installations thatare degraded by water trees. Since many of these cables areinstalled in the same grid nets, one cable fault oftengenerates another. If two or more cables fail at the same time,the consequences can be extensive. A non-destructive diagnosticmethod makes it possible to assess cables and take action priorto ...
High-resolution C 1s near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectra of naphthalene are investigated. By comparing the spectral signatures of condensed naphthalene molecules with those of naphthalene in the gas phase, we are able to unambiguously identify spectral features which are affected by the intermolecular interactions in the condensed phase. With the help of calculations using time-dependent density-functional theory and the second-order algebraic-diagrammatic construction scheme for the polarization propagator, resonances in the relevant energy range can be assigned to valence and Rydberg-like excitations. Thus, we obtain a more detailed identification of NEXAFS resonances beyond the present literature.. ...

In this study, an efficient spectral similarity method referred to as Weighted Chebyshev Distance (WCD) is introduced for supervised classification of hyperspectral imagery (HSI) and target detection applications. The WCD is based on a simple spectral similarity based decision rule using limited amount of reference data. The estimation of upper and lower spectral boundaries of spectral signatures for all classes across spectral bands is referred to as a vector tunnel (VT). To obtain the reference information, the training signatures are provided randomly from existing data for a known class. After determination of the parameters of the WCD algorithm with the training set, classification or detection procedures are accomplished at each pixel. The comparative performances of the algorithms are tested under various cases. The decision criterion for classification of an input vector is based on choosing its class corresponding to the narrowest VT that the input vector fits in to. This is also shown to be

misc{4936673, abstract = {Optical spectroscopy is commonly used in technology and science today. The presence and concentration of a substance can be determined by its spectral signature, the typical wavelengths that are absorbed (or emitted) by the atoms or molecules. Standard absorption spectroscopy requires that the substance is clear and that the optical path-length is known to obtain quantitative information. Unfortunately in many materials, such as human tissue or pharmaceutical tablets, there are also a strong scattering of light which complicates measurements. The pathlength of the light is now no longer known and the intensity of the detected light can in many cases be more affected by high scattering than by the absorption values. One method to separate these two values are photon Time-of-Flight Spectroscopy (TOFS). By sending many short light pulses through a sample, and recording the time for a single photon to arrive at our detector for each pulse, we can build a histogram that ...
Hyperspectral imagery is a new class of image data which is mainly used in remote sensing. It is characterized by a wealth of spatial and spectral information that can be used to improve detection and estimation accuracy in chemical and biological standoff detection applications. Finding spectral endmembers is a very important task in hyperspectral data exploitation. Over the last decade, several algorithms have been proposed to find spectral endmembers in hyperspectral data. Existing algorithms may be categorized into two different classes: 1) endmember extraction algorithms (EEAs), designed to find pure (or purest available) pixels, and 2) endmember generation algorithms (EGAs), designed to find pure spectral signatures. Such a distinction between an EEA and an EGA has never been made before in the literature. In this paper, we explore the concept of endmember generation as opposed to that of endmember extraction by describing our experience with two EGAs: the optical real-time adaptative ...

This paper describes how reflected broadband sound signals are marked by interference phenomena if the surface of the ensonified object is structured. For an efficient extraction of features of the signal that relate to the surface structure of the object, the calculation of the cepstrum is introduced. A cylindrical test object is presented, which shows an angle independent and an angle dependent structure. This allows to specify the accuracy of the discrimination of structure sizes, that is based on a selected part of the cepstrum. In addition, the object can be used as a landmark for ultrasonic sensing. Classification of the cepstra is done by the statistical One Nearest Neighbour (1NN) method as well as by a Kohonen Self-Organising Feature Map (SOM). The results show, that changes in structure size down to 0.1mm are detectable ...

d {\displaystyle L>d} , U 1 , … , U d {\displaystyle U_{1},\ldots ,U_{d}} be the eigenvectors (left singular vectors of the L {\displaystyle L} -trajectory matrix), which are provided by the SVD step of SSA. Then this series is governed by an LRR x n = ∑ k = 1 L − 1 a k x n − k {\displaystyle x_{n}=\sum _{k=1}^{L-1}a_{k}x_{n-k}} , where ( a L − 1 , … , a 1 ) T {\displaystyle (a_{L-1},\ldots ,a_{1})^{\mathrm {T} }} are expressed through U 1 , … , U d {\displaystyle U_{1},\ldots ,U_{d}} (Golyandina et al., 2001, Ch.5), and can be continued by the same LRR. This provides the basis for SSA recurrent and vector forecasting algorithms (Golyandina et al., 2001, Ch.2). In practice, the signal is corrupted by a perturbation, e.g., by noise, and its subspace is estimated by SSA approximately. Thus, SSA forecasting can be applied for forecasting of a time series component that is approximately governed by an LRR and is approximately separated from the residual.

The N K-edge X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectra of the purine-containing nucleotide, guanosine 5{sup ′}-monophosphate (GMP), in aqueous solution are measured under various pH conditions. The spectra show characteristic peaks, which originate from resonant excitations of N 1s electrons to π* orbitals inside the guanine moiety of GMP. The relative intensities of these peaks depend on the pH values of the solution. The pH dependence is explained by the core-level shift of N atoms at specific sites caused by protonation and deprotonation. The experimental spectra are compared with theoretical spectra calculated by using density functional theory for GMP and the other purine-containing nucleotides, adenosine 5{sup ′}-monophosphate, and adenosine 5{sup ′}-triphosphate. The N K-edge XANES spectra for all of these nucleotides are classified by the numbers of N atoms with particular chemical bonding characteristics in the purine moiety. ...

N2 - We measured femtosecond transient absorption of dye solutions and TiO 2 films sensitized with two zinc porphyrins (PE1 and PE4) to investigate the interfacial dynamics of electron transfer in relation to the dependence of cell performance on the length of the linker (Lin, C.-Y.; Lo, C.-F.; Luo, L.; Lu, H.-P.; Hung, C.-S.; Diau, E. W.-G. J. Phys. Chem. C 2009, 113, 755-764). For both porphyrins adsorbed on TiO2 films with S 1 excitation (λex = 620 nm), the transient absorption kinetics probed at 630 nm and 4.9 μm are complementary to each other because only the excited-state and ground-state species were observed at 630 nm whereas only the charge-separation ...
Sum frequency generation (SFG) vibrational spectroscopy was used to investigate the interfacial properties of several amino acids, peptides, and proteins adsorbed at the hydrophilic polystyrene solid-liquid and the hydrophobic silica solid-liquid interfaces. The influence of experimental geometry on the sensitivity and resolution of the SFG vibrational spectroscopy technique was investigated both theoretically and experimentally. SFG was implemented to investigate the adsorption and organization of eight individual amino acids at model hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces under physiological conditions. Biointerface studies were conducted using a combination of SFG and quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) comparing the interfacial structure and concentration of two amino acids and their corresponding homopeptides at two model liquid-solid interfaces as a function of their concentration in aqueous solutions. The influence of temperature, concentration, equilibration time, and electrical bias on the extent

Polarization-dependent grazing incidence X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) measurements were completed on oriented single crystals of magnesite [MgCO3] and brucite [Mg(OH)2] reacted with aqueous uranyl chloride above and below the solubility boundaries of schoepite (500, 50, and 5 ppm) at pH 8.3 and at ambient (PCO2 = 10-3.5) or reduced partial pressures of carbon dioxide (PCO2 = 10-4.5). X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure (XANES) spectra show a striking polarization dependence ( = 0° and  = 90° relative to the polarization plane of the incident beam) and consistently demonstrated that the uranyl molecule was preferentially oriented with its Oaxial=U(VI)=Oaxial linkage at high angles (60-80º) to both magnesite () and brucite (0001). Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) analysis shows that the "effective" number of U(VI) axial oxygens is the most strongly affected fitting parameter as a function of polarization. Furthermore, axial tilt in the surface thin films (thickness ...
The principal method of probing the structure of these films was the non-linear optical technique of Sum Frequency Generation (SFG). The experimental techniques used in this work are first introduced together with a theoretical description of SFG. There then follows an overview which describes semiconductor nanoparticle monolayers and the application of SFG to them. The work was subsequently extended to the investigation of multilayers of semiconductor nanoparticles incorporated within fatty acid films. Whilst SFG of monolayers is well understood SFG of multilayer films is not and most of this dissertation has been devoted to providing a systematic description of SFG of multilayer films adsorbed onto both metal and dielectric substrates. The observed multilayer SFG spectrum is shown to be a superposition of SFG signals coming from the surface layer, in contact with air, and the lowermost layer, in contact with the substrate. The SFG spectrum is a simple numerical addition of the two signals when ...
As essential media currently used in several technological applications, the accurate molecular level description of ionic liquids (ILs) at the gas-liquid interface is of utmost importance. The inherently surface-sensitive technique, sum frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy, in combination with bulk-sensitive vibrational spectroscopic techniques such as FTIR and Raman, have been used in this report to characterize the surface of cyano-containing ILs, such as [BMIM][SCN], [BMIM][DCA], [BMIM][TCM], and [EMIM][TCB] at the gas-liquid interface. By structural variation of the anion while keeping the cation constant, emphasis on the molecular arrangement of the anion at the gas-liquid interface was reported. Vibrational modes seen in the C-H stretching region revealed the presence of the cation with an orientation independent of the type of anion. A similar arrangement at the surface as reported in previous studies was found. All three anions of varying symmetry, namely, [DCA]- (C2v), [TCM]-(D3h), ...

When the number of training samples is limited, feature reduction plays an important role in classification of hyperspectral images. In this paper, we propose a supervised feature extraction method based on discriminant analysis (DA) which uses the first principal component (PC1) to weight the scatter matrices. The proposed method, called DA-PC1, copes with the small sample size problem and has not the limitation of linear discriminant analysis (LDA) in the number of extracted features. In DA-PC1, the dominant structure of distribution is preserved by PC1 and the class separability is increased by DA. The experimental results show the good performance of DA-PC1 compared to some state-of-the-art feature extraction methods.

The electronic properties of Au crystal and nano Au have been investigated by theory and experiment. Molecularly capped nano-Au was synthesized using the two-phase method. Au nano-particles have been characterized by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). They retain the fcc crystal structure. Their sizes have been determined to be in a range from 5.5 nm to 1.7 nm. The L3 X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure (XANES) of nano-Au and Au foil have been recorded using synchrotron radiation, and examined by theoretical calculation [1] based on the first principles [2,3]. Both theory and experiment show that the nano-Au particles have essentially all the Au L3 XANES features of bulk Au in the near edge region with less pronounced resonance peaks. It is also shown that nano Au exhibits lower 4f binding energy than bulk Au in good agreement with quantum confined Au systems reported previously [3,4].
The usage of steel powders prealloyed with chromium in PM components for high performance applications is steadily increasing. Excellent mechanical properties are achieved with these powder grades, provided that the processing into components is accurately done. Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS) technique has been used here to study oxide reduction during sintering in 90N2/10H2 atmosphere of test specimens based on 3%Cr-0.5%Mo prealloyed powders with 0.5% C added. Results from performed reduction trials show that Fe oxides on the powder surfaces are removed by H2 reduction early in the heating stage of the process. Carbothermal reduction is the main mechanism for reduction of stable Cr-containing oxides from 900°C and above. Efficient Cr oxide reduction requires a sintering temperature of at least around 1200°C. Therefore, small oxide particles remain in the material after sintering at 1120°C for 30 minutes. However, such oxides have earlier been shown to have no significant influence on mechanical
Description: In this research, hyperspectral and multispectral images were utilized for vegetation studies in the greenbelt corridor near Denton. EO-1 Hyperion was the hyperspectral image and Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) was the multispectral image used for this research. In the first part of the research, both the images were classified for land cover mapping (after necessary atmospheric correction and geometric registration) using supervised classification method with maximum likelihood algorithm and accuracy of the classification was also assessed for comparison. Hyperspectral image was preprocessed for classification through principal component analysis (PCA), segmented principal component analysis and minimum noise fraction (MNF) transform. Three different images were achieved after these pre-processing of the hyperspectral image. Therefore, a total of four images were classified and assessed the accuracy. In the second part, a more precise and improved land cover study was done on ...
A broad range of chemical reactions are triggered by the absorption of light. Examples include photosynthesis and charge transfer in semiconductors and molecules. Electronic dynamics which evolve on the few femtosecond to attosecond timescale are expected to play an important role in these processes. We aim to investigate these dynamics with transient X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy. XANES spectroscopy uses resonant excitation of particular atoms in a molecule to provide a highly localised probe of electronic structure. By employing attosecond soft x-ray pulses generated via high harmonic generation for XANES spectroscopy this atomic scale spatial resolution can in principle be combined with the attosecond temporal resolution required for tracking electronic dynamics. I shall present development of a beamline for transient XANES spectroscopy and progress towards visible pump, soft x-ray probe experiments in the organic polymer poly(hexylthiophene ...
Summary One of the major challenges in understanding the complex immune system is the question when and why this defense system attacks endogenous proteins (i.e. self-proteins). Currently, there are no reliable methods to predict what induces such an immune response, despite it has a major impact in medicine by causing autoimmune diseases, and in biotechnology by inducing adverse reactions towards new drugs. PredicTOOL will concentrate on antibody-mediated immune reactions to endogenous proteins. By high sensitivity nanotechnological tools based on spectroscopic and imaging techniques (e.g. Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy, Single Molecule Force Spectroscopy, Isothermal Titration Calorimetry, Fluorescence Microscopy), PredicTOOL will identify common patterns that characterize the interaction of autoantibodies with their antigens and further interaction with cells of the immune system. We will use well characterized human model diseases (cardiovascular). The proposed technologies will allow ...
12 Apr 2017. NUS chemists have demonstrated an electrical field-controlled giant Stark effect in black phosphorus for potential applications in advanced electro-optic modulators and photodetector devices.. The bandgap is a material property that determines electrical conductivity. Solids with large bandgaps are generally insulators as they do not conduct electricity. Those with smaller bandgaps are semiconductors. A team of NUS researchers have demonstrated that the bandgap of black phosphorus (BP) changes in the presence of an electric field. By controlling the electric field strength, they have shown that the bandgap of BP can be adjusted to a desired level. This means that by changing the electric field, the material can be made to either conduct or not to conduct electricity. The findings can potentially be used for advanced optoelectronic devices operating beyond the visible light spectrum.. When a few atomic layers of BP are exposed to an electric field, a physical phenomenon known as the ...
Medical implants are increasingly often inserted into bone of frail patients, who are advanced in years. Due to age, severe trauma or pathology-related bone changes, osseous healing at the implant site is frequently limited. We were able to demonstrate that coating of endosseous implants with nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) allows stable functionalization by means of physisorption with BMP-2. Strong physisorption was shown to be directly related to the unique properties of NCD, and BMP-2 in its active form interacted strongly when NCD was oxygen-terminated. The binding of the protein was monitored under physiological conditions by single molecule force spectroscopy, and the respective adsorption energies were further substantiated by force-field-calculations. Implant surfaces refined in such a manner yielded enhanced osseointegration in vivo, when inserted into sheep calvaria. Our results further suggest that this technical advancement can be readily applied in clinical therapies with regard to ...
Femtosecond transient absorption spectrometer Our femtosecond transient absorption spectrometer is a homemade pump-continuum-probe setup. The main femtosecond laser source is a Ti:Sapphire system from Spectra-Physics (Tsunami oscillator followed by a Spitfire regenerative amplifier). It delivers 50-fs ~0.7 mJ pulses at 1 kHz around 800 nm. Tunable pump pulses in the visible are produced by a noncollinear optical parametric amplifier (NOPA, Clark-MXR). A broadband continuum probe is obtained by self-phase modulation of a 800-nm beam in a CaF2 plate. Its time delay with respect to the pump is adjusted in a motorized optical delay line. The pump and probe beams are focused with parabolic mirrors and overlapped in the sample, kept in a 1-mm cell. The sample may be constantly displaced in two directions to avoid the re-excitation of a previously excited area. The sample may also be thermostated with the help of a water bath circulated through the sample holder. Fig 1 gives a schematic view of the ...
