  • We use hard x-ray resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) and density functional theory (DFT) calculations to characterize charge transfer excitations in K{sub 3}Mn(CN){sub 6}. The combination of RIXS measurements and DFT calculations allows us to characterize the strength of the ligand-metal electronic interaction and assign the Raman resonances in the RIXS spectra to charge transfer excitations. With x-ray excitation energies resonant with the T{sub 2g} and E{sub g} pre-edge peaks derived predominantly from the Mn 3d orbitals, we observe Raman resonances in the energy transfer range from 2 to 12 eV, which results from the filling of the 1s core-holemore » from T{sub 1u}-symmetry occupied orbitals. DFT calculations indicate that these orbitals exhibit primarily ligand character, supporting the assignment of the energy transfer resonances to ligand-to-metal charge transfer excitations. Our RIXS measurements and DFT calculations also indicate that the E{sub g}-orbital spin-splits by roughly 0.8 eV, though we do not cleanly resolve the two absorption peaks in the RIXS spectra. We also see evidence for a metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) excitation when exciting with a 6545.0 eV incident photon, roughly 4 eV above the E{sub g} absorption peaks. The 6545.0 eV resonant emission spectrum shows a 6.0 eV energy transfer resonance, which corresponds to a final state hole in the T{sub 2g} partially occupied orbital. DFT calculations indicate that excitation at 6545.0 eV populates an unoccupied T{sub 1u}-symmetry orbital of primarily ligand character. Given the predominantly metal character of the final state hole, we assign the 6.0 eV Raman resonance to a MLCT excitation. These measurements demonstrate the ability of hard x-ray RIXS to characterize the valence electronic structure of coordination compounds.« less
  • Research indicates that microwave energy offers many advantages over conventional heating methods. These advantages generally can be divided into two categories. One of them is the reduction in processing time and temperature, and the second one is the fabrication of materials with unique and/or superior properties. Microwave energy appears to be especially advantageous for the processing of many types of ceramics requiring high thermal process temperatures. This is connected with the increased coupling efficiency of ceramics at high temperatures with the microwave energy, the more uniform volumetric heating, and increased densification rates at lower processing temperatures. This paper describes microwavemore » sintering of a commercial alumina-based product, Green Tape[sup TM] Dielectric 851AT (DuPont), that is designed for use as a material for hybrid integrated multilayer structures in the production of hybrid integrated circuits, as well as for some unconventional applications (ion optics, sensors, etc) (4,5). This study compares mechanical properties of conventionally and microwave sintered Green Tape[sup TM] 851AT hybrid multilayer structures.« less
