  • The extraction of the dielectric constant of nanostructured graphene on SiC substrates from spectroscopy ellipsometry measurement using the Gauss-Newton inversion (GNI) method has been done. This study aims to calculate the dielectric constant and refractive index of graphene by extracting the value of ψ and Δ from the spectroscopy ellipsometry measurement using GNI method and comparing them with previous result which was extracted using Drude-Lorentz (DL) model. The results show that GNI method can be used to calculate the dielectric constant and refractive index of nanostructured graphene on SiC substratesmore faster as compared to DL model. Moreover, the imaginary partmore » of the dielectric constant values and coefficient of extinction drastically increases at 4.5 eV similar to that of extracted using known DL fitting. The increase is known due to the process of interband transition and the interaction between the electrons and electron-hole at M-points in the Brillouin zone of graphene.« less
  • The fluctuations in the lossy surface waves quasilocalized near a sharp change in the plasma density are studied theoretically. Correlation functions are found for the fluctuations in the electromagnetic field which determine the spectral intensity of the thermal radiation from the plasma. It is shown that such properties of the nonuniform plasma as its density distribution, the characteristic dimensions of the inhomogeneities, and the temperature at the rapid density change can be determined by measuring the position of the maximum in the angular distribution of the intensity, the absolute value of this maximum, the line width, and the threshold angle.
  • Excitation-energy-gated two-fragment correlation functions have been studied between E{sup *}/A=(2- 9)A MeV for equilibriumlike sources formed in 8-10 GeV/ c {pi}{sup -} and p+{sup 197}Au reactions. Comparison with an N -body Coulomb-trajectory code shows an order of magnitude decrease in the fragment emission time in the interval E{sup *}/A=(2-5) A MeV , followed by a nearly constant breakup time at higher excitation energy. The decrease in emission time is strongly correlated with the onset of multifragmentation and thermally induced radial expansion, consistent with a transition from surface-dominated to bulk emission expected for spinodal decomposition.
