Title: The investigation of the optimal conditions thermal destruction of the microcapsules containing water by laser pulses

Abstract

The particular qualities of formation of the optical field in the composite spherical particles–microcapsules consisting of a polymer absorbing shell and a non-absorbing liquid core are presented. The thickness of the shell and the coefficient of its own radiation absorption determine the nature of spatial distribution and amplitude characteristics of the absorbed power which are revealed by the numerical simulation. The variation of these parameters allows changing position and peak values of the areas the effective absorption volume of the particle. Therefore the conditions conducive for the opening shells in the appropriate spatial areas in order to liberate the contents of the microcapsules are ensured.

  • A number of methods are proposed for encapsulating silver and gold nanoparticles into shells of polyelectrolyte microcapsules for the purpose of increasing the sensitivity of microcapsules to laser radiation. It is shown that capsules with nanocomposite shells can be remotely damaged under laser radiation with different powers and wavelengths. The sensitivity of capsules with silver and gold nanoparticles in shells to this radiation can be controlled by varying the conditions used for the preparation of the capsules. The release of the encapsulated material under laser radiation makes these systems promising for use as microcontainers intended for the target delivery ofmore » drugs in an organism.« less
  • Intense x-ray pulses from x-ray free electron lasers (XFELs) enable the unveiling of atomic structure in material and biological specimens via ultrafast single-shot exposures. As the radiation is intense enough to destroy the sample, a new sample must be provided for each x-ray pulse. These single-particle delivery schemes require careful optimization, though systematic study to find such optimal conditions is still lacking. We have investigated two major single-particle delivery methods: particle injection as flying objects and membrane-mount as fixed targets. The optimal experimental parameters were searched for via Monte Carlo simulations to discover that the maximum single-particle hit rate achievablemore » is close to 40%.« less

  • Previous publications neglected heat transfer conditions in the steam generator in thermal optimization of reactor what strong measure assumptions of this kind influence the results. It is further indicated that through a thermal optimization calculation the range for the most suitable interpretation can be ascertained by certain hypothesis. A generally applicable optimal interpretation is still not given. The economic advantages of an optimal thermal interpretation of a reactor plant are discussed. In reactor development for the industrial production of energy by reactors, the possibility of thermal interpretations and cost lowerings will be utilized. (tr-auth)
  • Here, we numerically demonstrate the generation of intense, low-divergence soft X-ray isolated attosecond pulses in a gas-filled hollow waveguide using synthesized few-cycle two-color laser waveforms. The waveform is a superposition of a fundamental and its second harmonic optimized such that highest harmonic yields are emitted from each atom. We then optimize the gas pressure and the length and radius of the waveguide such that bright coherent high-order harmonics with angular divergence smaller than 1 mrad are generated, for photon energy from the extreme ultraviolet to soft X-rays. By selecting a proper spectral range enhanced isolated attosecond pulses are generated. Wemore » study how dynamic phase matching caused by the interplay among waveguide mode, neutral atomic dispersion, and plasma effect is achieved at the optimal macroscopic conditions, by performing time-frequency analysis and by analyzing the evolution of the driving laser’s electric field during the propagation. Our results, when combined with the on-going push of high-repetition-rate lasers (sub- to few MHz’s) may eventually lead to the generation of high-flux, low-divergence soft X-ray tabletop isolated attosecond pulses for applications.« less
