  • Fusion facilities like ITER and DEMO will circulate huge amounts of deuterium and tritium in their fuel cycle with an estimated throughput of kg per hour. One important capability of these fuel cycles is to separate the hydrogen isotopologues (H{sub 2}, D{sub 2}, T{sub 2}, HD, HT, DT). For this purpose the Isotope Separation System (ISS), using cryogenic distillation, as part of the Tritium Enrichment Test Assembly (TRENTA) is under development at Tritium Laboratory Karlsruhe. Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy (FTIR) has been selected to prove its capability for online monitoring of the tritium concentration in the liquid phase atmore » the bottom of the distillation column of the ISS. The actual research-development work is focusing on the calibration of such a system. Two major issues are the identification of appropriate absorption lines and their dependence on the isotopic concentrations and composition. For this purpose the Tritium Absorption IR spectroscopy experiment has been set up as an extension of TRENTA. For calibration a Raman spectroscopy system is used. First measurements, with equilibrated mixtures of H{sub 2}, D{sub 2} and HD demonstrate that FTIR can be used for quantitative analysis of liquid hydro-gen isotopologues and reveal a nonlinear dependence of the integrated absorbance from the D{sub 2} concentration in the second vibrational branch of D{sub 2} FTIR spectra.

  • Applicability of the Ga(Sb x)N 1-x alloys for practical realization of photoelectrochemical water splitting is investigated using first-principles density functional theory incorporating the local density approximation and generalized gradient approximation plus the Hubbard U parameter formalism. Our calculations reveal that a relatively small concentration of Sb impurities is sufficient to achieve a significant narrowing of the band gap, enabling absorption of visible light. Theoretical results predict that Ga(Sb x)N 1-x alloys with 2-eV band gaps straddle the potential window at moderate to low pH values, thus indicating that dilute Ga(Sb x)N 1-x alloys could be potential candidates for splitting watermore » under visible light irradiation.« less

  • We provide a detailed theoretical analysis of the character of optical transitions and band gap reduction in (Fe1-xCrx)2O3 solid solutions using extensive periodic model and embedded cluster calculations. Optical absorption bands for x = 0.0, 0.5, and 1.0 are assigned on the basis of timedependent density functional theory (TDDFT) calculations. A band-gap reduction of as much as 0.7 eV with respect to that of pure α-Fe2O3 is found. This result can be attributed to predominantly two effects: (i) the higher valence band edge for x ≈ 0.5, as compared to those in pure α-Fe2O3 and α-Cr2O3, and, (ii) the appearancemore » of Cr α Fe d–d transitions in the solid solutions. Broadening of the valence band due to hybridization of the O 2p states with Fe and Cr 3d states also contributes to band gap reduction.« less
  • Optical absorption spectra for the computed ground state structures of copper clusters (Cu{sub n}, n = 2-20) are investigated from first principles using time-dependent density functional theory in the adiabatic local density approximation (TDLDA). The results are compared with available experimental data, existing calculations, and with results from our previous computations on silver and gold clusters. The main effects of d electrons on the absorption spectra, quenching the oscillator strengths, and getting directly involved in low-energy excitations increase in going from Ag{sub n} to Au{sub n} to Cu{sub n} due to the increase in the hybridization of the occupied, yetmore » shallow, d orbitals and the partially occupied s orbitals. We predict that while Cu nanoparticles of spherical or moderately ellipsoidal shape do not exhibit Mie (surface plasmon) resonances, unlike the case for Ag and Au, extremely prolate or oblate Cu nanoparticles with eccentricities near unity should give rise to Mie resonances in the lower end of the visible range and in the infrared. This tunable resonance predicted by the classical Mie-Gans theory is reproduced with remarkable accuracy by our TDLDA computations on hypothetical Cu clusters in the form of zigzag chains with as few as 6 to 20 atoms.« less
