Title: Spectroscopy of 215Rn86

Abstract

The yrast level structure of 215,216Rn has been studied using in beam spectroscopy {alpha} - {gamma} - {gamma} coincidence techniques mainly through the 207Pb(18O, 2{alpha}2n) and 208Pb(18O, 2{alpha}2n) reactions in the 91-93 MeV energy range, using the 8{pi} GASP-ISIS spectrometer at Legnaro. The obtained low lying level scheme of 215Rn does not exhibit the alternating parity structure observed in their heavier known isotones 216Fr, 217Ra and 218Ac. The level scheme of 216Rn resulting from this study shows >From this result, the lightest nucleus showing evidence for reflection asymmetry is 216Fr defining one lowest-mass corner for this kind of phenomenon as N{>=}129 and Z{>=}87.

  • Selective and nonselective gas adsorption, pycnometry, porosimetry and mechanical tests were discussed in Part I, and X-ray diffraction, temperature-programmed desorption, temperature-programmed reduction, thermogravimetry and differential thermoanalysis in Part II. Part III includes electron microscopy, electron-probe microanalysis, Auger electron spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and secondary-ion mass spectroscopy.
  • We have studied the (100) and (110) surfaces of yttria-stabilized cubic ZrO{sub 2} using Auger electron spectroscopy, low energy electron diffraction (LEED), direct recoil spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy of recoiled ions (MSRI), and secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS). The concentration of yttrium at the surface was weakly influenced by the surface structure under the experimental conditions investigated. Both MSRI and SIMS indicated a more enhanced yttrium signal than zirconium signal at the surface compared to the respective bulk concentrations. The surfaces were not very well ordered as indicated by LEED. The yttria-stabilized cubic ZrO{sub 2} single crystal surfaces may not bemore » a suitable model material for pure phase ZrO{sub 2} surfaces due to significant yttria concentrations at the surface. {copyright} {ital 1999 American Vacuum Society.}« less
  • The localized orbital ionization potential (LOIP), involving both core and valence ionization potentials, is a valuable aid in the assignment of valence-photoelectron spectra. Its primary value is to provide chemists with a reliable method for interpreting valence-shell ionization potentials in terms of the bonding or antibonding character of molecular orbitals. Typical applications are the determination of the degree of interaction of so-called lone-pair orbitals (mainly consisting of p or d orbitals) either with filled orbitals (bond breaking orbitals or other lone pairs) or with empty orbitals (antibonding orbitals or higher energy d orbitals). This method allows chemists to make thesemore » interpretations using only experimental data, free from most of the calculational problems and interpretive ambiguities associated with theoretical methods. 2 figures, 8 tables.« less
  • Studies the (100) and (110) surfaces of yttria-stabilized cubic ZrO2, using Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), low energy electron diffraction (LEED), direct recoil spectroscopy (DRS), mass-spectroscopy of recoiled ions (MSRI), and secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS). Results show that yttria-stabilized cubic ZrO2 surfaces may not be suitable for detailed studies on molecular level surface interactions.
  • A new liquid microjet endstation designed for ultraviolet (UPS) and X-ray (XPS) photoelectron, and partial electron yield X-ray absorption (XAS) spectroscopies at the Swiss Light Source is presented. The new endstation, which is based on a Scienta HiPP-2 R4000 electron spectrometer, is the first liquid microjet endstation capable of operating in vacuum and in ambient pressures up to the equilibrium vapor pressure of liquid water at room temperature. In addition, the Scienta HiPP-2 R4000 energy analyzer of this new endstation allows for XPS measurements up to 7000 eV electron kinetic energy that will enable electronic structure measurements of bulk solutionsmore » and buried interfaces from liquid microjet samples. The endstation is designed to operate at the soft X-ray SIM beamline and at the tender X-ray Phoenix beamline. The endstation can also be operated using a Scienta 5 K ultraviolet helium lamp for dedicated UPS measurements at the vapor-liquid interface using either He I or He II ╬▒ lines. The design concept, first results from UPS, soft X-ray XPS, and partial electron yield XAS measurements, and an outlook to the potential of this endstation are presented.« less
