  • The unique linear chain compound [Pt(en){sub 2}I{sub 2}][Pt(CN){sub 4}] {l{underscore}brace}where en = ethylenediamine{r{underscore}brace} has been synthesized through a standard method. The results of a structural analysis by X-ray crystallography reveal this new MX compound to be quasi-one-dimensional with complete chain-to-chain registry to give a completely ordered structure. The results of resonance Raman, IR, diffuse reflectance, and X-ray crystallography reveal that the Pt centers are highly charge disproportionated with a large commensurate distortion of the iodide sublattice about the Pt center of higher charge. These results reveal that this material is the strongest CDW MX compound, containing iodide bridges, reported tomore » date. Resonance Raman experiments have shown that five A{sub g} (C{sub 2h} site symmetry) Raman bands are strongly enhanced. These correspond to three in-chain Pt-I modes and two (chain perpendicular) CN stretches and are interpreted in terms of strong phonon coupling to the IVCT band.« less
  • We investigate the mechanism of structural coloration by quasi-ordered nanostructures in bird feather barbs. Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data reveal the structures are isotropic and have short-range order on length scales comparable to optical wavelengths. We perform angle-resolved reflection and scattering spectrometry to fully characterize the colors under directional and omni-directional illumination of white light. Under directional lighting, the colors change with the angle between the directions of illumination and observation. The angular dispersion of the primary peaks in the scattering/reflection spectra can be well explained by constructive interference of light that is scattered only once in the quasi-ordered structures.more » Using the Fourier power spectra of structure from the SAXS data we calculate optical scattering spectra and explain why the light scattering peak is the highest in the backscattering direction. Under omni-directional lighting, colors from the quasi-ordered structures are invariant with the viewing angle. The non-iridescent coloration results from the isotropic nature of structures instead of strong backscattering.« less
  • The X-ray diffraction and X-ray spectroscopic properties of strontium titanate single crystals and their surface exposed to plasma have been investigated. Both undoped SrTiO{sub 3} crystals and crystals containing impurity ions of the iron or lanthanum groups have been analyzed. Data on the plasma-induced formation of ordered crystallites on the sample surface were obtained by electron and atomic force microscopy. The crystallites are from 10{sup -7} to 10{sup -9} m in size and their hypothetical orientation [321] is independent of the sample orientation and irradiation dose.
