Title: Dimension reduction for extracting geometrical structure of multidimensional phase space: Application to fast energy exchange in the reaction O({sup 1}D)+N{sub 2}O{yields}NO+NO

Abstract

One of the most fundamental problems in studying general Hamiltonian systems with many degrees of freedom is to extract a low-dimensional subsystem including the essential dynamics. In this paper, a new partial normal form (PNF) method is developed to reduce the number of coupling terms in the Hamiltonian and to simplify the dynamics analyses. The PNF method allows one to decouple many unimportant bath modes as well as the reactive mode from the system by assessing the significance of the coupling terms. The method is applied to the chemical reaction O({sup 1}D)+N{sub 2}O{yields}NO+NO, which was found to exhibit efficient energy exchange between the two NO stretching modes despite the short lifetime of the reaction intermediate [S. Kawai et al., J. Chem. Phys. 124, 184315 (2006)]. Through the analysis of the two-dimensional PNF Hamiltonian subsystem, it is found that the motion of the subsystem preserves the 'normal mode picture' of the symmetric and antisymmetric NO stretching modes despite its high energy. Then the vibrational energy, initially localized in the newly formed NO bond, is transferred to the reactants' NO bond through the beating between the symmetric and antisymmetric stretching modes. The preservation of the normal mode picture and the short periodmore » of the beating explain the fast energy exchange between the two NO bonds. This successful application proves that the PNF method can extract the essential small subspace from many-degrees-of-freedom Hamiltonian systems.« less

  • The charm quark offers interesting opportunities to cross check the mechanism of CP violation precisely tested in the strange and beauty sectors. In this paper, we exploit the angular and quantum correlations in the DD pairs produced through the decay of the {psi}(3770) resonance in a charm factory to investigate CP-violation in two different ways. We build CP-violating observables in {psi}(3770){yields}DD{yields}(V{sub 1}V{sub 2})(V{sub 3}V{sub 4}) to isolate specific new physics effects in the charm sector. We also consider the case of {psi}(3770){yields}DD{yields}(V{sub 1}V{sub 2})(K{pi}) decays, which provide a new way to measure the strong phase difference {delta} between Cabibbo- favoredmore » and doubly-Cabibbo suppressed D decays required in the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa quark-mixing matrix angle {gamma}. Neglecting the systematics, we give a first rough estimate of the sensitivities of these measurements at BES-III with an integrated luminosity of 20 fb{sup -1} at {psi}(3770) peak and at a future Super {tau}-charm factory with a luminosity of 10{sup 35} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1}.« less
  • We report reaction paths starting from N({sup 2}D) + H{sub 2}O for doublet spin states, D{sub 0} and D{sub 1}. The potential energy surfaces are explored in an automated fashion using the global reaction route mapping strategy. The critical points and reaction paths have been fully optimized at the complete active space second order perturbation theory level taking all valence electrons in the active space. In addition to direct dissociation pathways that would be dominant, three roaming processes, two roaming dissociation, and one roaming isomerization: (1) H{sub 2}ON → H–O(H)N → H–HON → NO({sup 2}Π) + H{sub 2}, (2) cis-HNOHmore » → HNO–H → H–HNO → NO + H{sub 2}, (3) H{sub 2}NO → H–HNO → HNO–H → trans-HNOH, are confirmed on the D{sub 0} surface.« less
  • Several mechanisms proposed and calculated for the sequential oxidation of tungsten suboxide clusters by H{sub 2}O/D{sub 2}O[Mayhall et al., J. Chem. Phys. 131, 144302 (2009)] are evaluated using anion photoelectron spectroscopy of an apparent intermediate, W{sub 2}O{sub 6}D{sub 2}{sup -}. The spectrum of W{sub 2}O{sub 6}D{sub 2}{sup -} is consistent with the W{sub 2}O{sub 5}{sup -}+D{sub 2}O{yields}W{sub 2}O{sub 6}{sup -}+D{sub 2} intermediate in which the initial water addition involves the interaction of the oxygen from D{sub 2}O with a tungsten atom, approaching from a direction with the least repulsion from the W{sub 2}O{sub 5}{sup -} oxygen atoms, coupled with themore » interaction between a deuterium with a tungsten-tungsten bridging oxygen on the cluster. The presence of W{sub 2}O{sub 6}H{sub 2}{sup -} and W{sub 2}O{sub 6}D{sub 2}{sup -} suggests that there is insufficient internal energy in the complex to surmount the barrier for rearrangement required for tungsten hydride and hydroxide formation necessary for H{sub 2} or D{sub 2} evolution, which was calculated to be energetically favorable. The quality of the calculations is verified by direct comparison between experimental photoelectron spectra of W{sub 2}O{sub 5}{sup -} and W{sub 2}O{sub 6}{sup -} and spectral simulations generated from the lowest energy structures calculated for W{sub 2}O{sub 5}{sup -}, W{sub 2}O{sub 6}{sup -} and their corresponding neutrals. The results shed light on the importance of repulsion on the pathway a reaction follows under room temperature conditions.« less
  • We present the spin-orbit (SO) and Renner-Teller (RT) quantum dynamics of the spin-forbidden quenching O({sup 1}D) + N{sub 2}(X{sup 1}{Sigma}{sub g}{sup +}){yields}O({sup 3}P) + N{sub 2}(X{sup 1}{Sigma}{sub g}{sup +}) on the N{sub 2}O X-tilde{sup 1}A{sup '}, a-tilde{sup 3}A', and b-tilde{sup 3}A{sup '} coupled PESs. We use the permutation-inversion symmetry, propagate coupled-channel (CC) real wavepackets, and compute initial-state-resolved probabilities and cross sections {sigma}{sub j0} for the ground vibrational and the first two rotational states of N{sub 2}, j{sub 0}= 0 and 1. Labeling symmetry angular states by j and K, we report selection rules for j and for the minimum Kmore » value associated with any electronic state, showing that a-tilde{sup 3}A' is uncoupled in the centrifugal-sudden (CS) approximation at j{sub 0}= 0. The dynamics is resonance-dominated, the probabilities are larger at low K, {sigma}{sub j0} decrease with the collision energy and increase with j{sub 0}, and the CS {sigma}{sub 0} is lower than the CC one. The nonadiabatic interactions play different roles on the quenching dynamics, because the X-tilde{sup 1}A{sup '}-b-tilde{sup 3}A{sup '} SO effects are those most important while the a-tilde{sup 3}A'-b-tilde{sup 3}A{sup '} RT ones are negligible.« less
