  • The authors present here photophysical properties of nitrogen-heterocyclic and aromatic carbonyl compounds that can be attributed to vibronic coupling between nearby n..pi..* and ..pi pi..* states (proximity effect). These compounds often exhibit luminescence (fluorescence and/or phosphorescence) that is strongly dependent upon temperature, the nature of the solvent, chemical substitution, and the position of the deuterium substitution. Many of these complexities can be traced to the vibronic interaction between close-lying n..pi..* and ..pi pi..* states, which leads to a large increase in the nonradiative decay rate of the lowest excited state. This phenomenon, which they have termed proximity effect, has beenmore » a subject of extensive studies in recent years, and there is now compelling evidence that the photophysical behavior of the lowest excited state in these molecular is strongly influenced by the proximity effect.« less
  • Reactions of reducing species from acetonitrile media with silver iodide particles ({approximately}25-{angstrom} diameter) have been investigated by pulse radiolysis techniques. Injection of electrons into these ultrasmall particles leads to transient bleaching of the adsorption of AgI at wavelengths close to the onset of absorption ({approximately}400 nm) with the concomitant reduction of AgI to metallic silver. The reduction of Ag{sup +} ions and formation of silver atoms and/or dimeric Ag{sub 2} molecules on three different size AgI particles ({approximately}100, 35, and {approximately}25 {angstrom}) have also been examined by picosecond laser spectroscopy.
  • The results of the experimental study of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) from the interaction of 45-fs Ti:sapphire laser pulses with plasma plumes of Ag nanoparticles produced in situ are presented in this article. The nanoparticles were generated by the interaction of 300-ps, 20-mJ laser pulses with bulk silver targets at an intensity of {approx}1x10{sup 13} W/cm{sup 2}. The spectral characteristics of the HHG from nanoparticles produced in situ are compared with the HHG from monoparticle plasma plumes and with the HHG from preformed nanoparticle-containing plasma plumes. The cutoff harmonic order generated using the in situ silver nanoparticles is at themore » 21st harmonic order.« less
