  • It is important to study possible precursors of amino acids such as glycine to enable future searches in interstellar space. Aminoacetonitrile (NH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}CN) is one of the most feasible molecules for this purpose. This molecule was already detected toward Sgr B2(N). Aminoacetonitrile has a few low-lying vibrational excited states, and transitions within these states may be found in space. In this study, the pure-rotational transitions in the three lowest vibrational states in the 80–450 GHz range have been assigned and analyzed. It was found to be very important to include Coriolis coupling between the two lowest vibrational fundamentals, whilemore » the third one was unperturbed. The partition function was evaluated considering these new results.« less
  • We investigate the storage of atoms in an optical lattice, using light detuned up to 2nm to the blue of an atomic transition. Argon atoms were laser cooled in the metastable state 1s{sub 5}(J=2) and optically pumped to the state 1s{sub 3}(J=0). Subsequently these atoms were confined to the nodes of a three-dimensional interference pattern and stored for up to 1s. We resolved the bands of motion in the lattice using a time-of-flight technique, and observed band-dependent losses leading to the preparation of atoms in the motional ground band. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • The vibration spectra of Si/sub 2/H/sub 6/and Si/sub 2/D/sub 6/ were calcula ted, and the constant potential energles (power coefficients, etc.) and the shapes of normal vibrations were evaluated and analyzed. (tr-auth)
  • Nitric oxide plays a major role in stratospheric ozone chemistry, and its spectra have been measured through remote infrared sensing from the ground and from airborne platforms, as well as with the ATMOS and UARS satellite experiments. Solar McMath FTS spectra, recorded with a full instrumental width of about 0.0064 cm[sup [minus]1], were obtained of the fundamental vibration-rotation band of [sup 14]N[sup 16]O. These spectra have been used to determine N[sub 2]-induced-broadening and N[sub 2]-induced-shift coefficients as well as line intensities and positions. Measurements were made from 1,780 to 1,952 cm[sup [minus]1], up to [vert bar]m[vert bar] [approx] 22.5, formore » the P and R branches of the [sup 2][Pi][sub 1/2] and [sup 2][Pi][sub 3/2] subbands and a few transitions of the Q branch. The rotationless transition moments of the two sub-bands were found to be within [1/2]% of each other. The first-order Herman-Wallis intensity factor, C, measured for the first time, is in excellent agreement with theoretical predictions. The band intensity is 114.9 [+-] 3.4 cm[sup [minus]2] atm[sup [minus]1] at 296 K.« less
  • In a previous paper [Phys. Rev. A 40, 6260 (1989)] the ternary absorption coefficient of hydrogen in the fundamental band was calculated with the assumption of pairwise dipole components. The comparison with measurements of the absorption showed striking disagreement, particularly at the higher temperatures, presumably due to the neglect of the irreducible ternary dipole components. We extend here the calculations by including the most important irreducible ternary dipole components. The overlap-induced part of the ternary dipole components is obtained from the one-effective electron model which is written in a form suitable to account for vibrational transitions. Two different models aremore » compared here: one suggested by Guillot [ital et] [ital al]., J. Chem. Phys. 90, 650 (1989), and a new one. The comparison of the calculated total absorption (a sum formula) with the existing measurements shows that in hydrogen the exchange quadrupole-induced ternary dipole components are capable of producing the strong observed temperature dependence. Furthermore, it is the only mechanism presently known which may permit the reproduction of the measured data from theory; some of the approximations developed here give reasonable quantitative agreement with the measurement.« less
