  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are key species encountered in a large variety of environments such as the Interstellar Medium (ISM) and in combustion media. Their UV spectroscopy and photodynamics in neutral and cationic forms are important to investigate in order to learn about their structure, formation mechanisms, and reactivity. Here, we report an experimental photoelectron-photoion coincidence study of a prototypical PAH molecule, coronene, and its small clusters, in a molecular beam using the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) photons provided by the SOLEIL synchrotron facility. Mass-selected high resolution threshold photoelectron (TPES) and total ion yield spectra were obtained and analyzed in detail.more » Intense series of autoionizing resonances have been characterized as originating from the monomer, dimer, and trimer neutral species, which may be used as spectral fingerprints for their detection in the ISM by VUV absorption spectroscopy. Finally, a full description of the electronic structure of the monomer cation was made and discussed in detail in relation to previous spectroscopic optical absorption data. Tentative vibrational assignments in the near-threshold TPES spectrum of the monomer have been made with the support of a theoretical approach based on density functional theory.« less
  • Highlights: ► Belt-like VO{sub 2}(A) with a rectangular cross section was synthesized. ► The formation mechanism of belt-like VO{sub 2}(A) was proposed. ► Belt-like VO{sub 2}(M) was prepared by the irreversible transformation of VO{sub 2}(A). ► VO{sub 2}(A) and VO{sub 2}(M) can be used as the optical switching materials. ► VO{sub 2}(A) and VO{sub 2}(M) have good oxidation resistance below 400 °C in air. -- Abstract: Belt-like VO{sub 2}(A) with a rectangular cross section (VA-RCS) was successfully synthesized using V{sub 2}O{sub 5}, H{sub 2}C{sub 2}O{sub 4}·2H{sub 2}O and H{sub 2}O as the starting materials by a facile hydrothermal approach. Somemore » synthetic parameters, such as, the reaction time, reaction temperature and concentration of H{sub 2}C{sub 2}O{sub 4}·2H{sub 2}O, were systematically investigated to control the fabrication of belt-like VA-RCS. The formation mechanism of belt-like VA-RCS was proposed. Subsequently, belt-like VO{sub 2}(M) with a rectangular cross section (VM-RCS) was prepared by the irreversible transformation of VA-RCS at 700 °C for 2 h under the inert atmosphere. The phase transition temperature (T{sub c}) of VA-RCS and VM-RCS was evaluated by DSC test. The optical switching properties of VA-RCS and VM-RCS were studied by the variable-temperature infrared spectra, and it was found that the as-obtained VA-RCS and VM-RCS could be used as the optical switching materials. Furthermore, the oxidation resistance properties of VA-RCS and VM-RCS were investigated by TGA, indicating that they have good thermal stability and oxidation resistance below 400 °C in air.« less
  • Graphical abstract: PL emission spectra of SrSO{sub 4}:xSm{sup 3+} powder phosphors under 401 nm excitation. The inset shows Sm{sup 3+} concentration of relative luminescence intensity. - Highlights: • Three SrSO{sub 4} phosphors were synthesized by a facile precipitation reaction. • Rod-like SrSO{sub 4} obtained microcrystals are about 14 μm length and 6 μm width. • In the PL spectrum of SrSO{sub 4}:Ce{sup 3+}, two overlapping bands are observed. • Narrow bands are observed in spectra of SrSO{sub 4}:RE (RE = Sm{sup 3+} and Tb{sup 3+}). • The critical quenching concentrations are 0.8, 2 and 0.8 mol%, respectively. - Abstract: Threemore » SrSO{sub 4}:RE phosphors activated with rare-earth ions (RE = Sm{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+} and Ce{sup 3+}) were synthesized by a facile precipitation reaction without using any surfactants or templates. Especially, rod-like SrSO{sub 4} microcrystals with size of about 14 μm length and 6 μm width can be obtained under ambient condition at room temperature. The phase structure, microstructure and luminescence properties were characterized. In the photoluminescence property investigation of SrSO{sub 4}:Ce{sup 3+}, two overlapping bands with peaks at 301 and 320 nm due to Ce{sup 3+} were observed. Narrow bands observed in emission spectra and excitation spectra of SrSO{sub 4}:RE (RE = Sm{sup 3+} and Tb{sup 3+}) phosphors were well identified with the electronic transitions within the 4f{sup n} (n = 5 and 8) configurations of RE{sup 3+}.« less
  • Highlights: • Synthesis of reduced graphene oxide (rGO)/α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanocomposites (NCs) by sol–gel method. • Samples exhibited ferromagnetism originated due to surface canted spins. • rGO enhanced the value of saturation magnetization and coercivity of the bare nanoparticle. • RKKY coupling between the isolated rGO spins and the magnetic nanoparticles. - Abstract: Reduced graphene oxide/α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanocomposites were synthesized by a simple sol–gel method. Initially, the samples were investigated by X-ray diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. High resolution transmission electron micrographs indicate that the magnetic nanoparticles are well dispersed in the reduced graphene oxidemore » sheet-like structure. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy studies corroborate the results obtained by X-ray diffraction. Temperature as well as field dependent magnetic measurements revealed ferromagnetism in the pristine α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} as well as in the nanocomposite sample that is attributed to surface canted spins and defects present in the samples. The enhanced value of coercivity in case of the nanocomposite sample could be ascribed to the Ruderman–Kittel–Kasuya–Yosida type of interaction between the isolated reduced graphene oxide spin and the magnetic ions. Presence of super paramagnetic doublet as well as sextet patterns related to hematite phase is confirmed by the {sup 57}Fe-Mössbauer spectroscopy.« less
  • Eu{sup 3+}-doped Gd{sub 3}PO{sub 7} nanospheres with an average diameter of {approx}300 nm and a narrow size distribution have been prepared by a facile combustion method and structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction and field emission scanning electron microscopy. The luminescent properties were systemically studied by the measurement of excitation/emission spectra, and emission spectra under different temperatures, as well as by photostability. The strong red-emission intensity peaking at 614 nm originates the {sup 5}D{sub 0}{yields}{sup 7}F{sub 2} transition and is observed under 254-nm irradiation, indicating that Eu{sup 3+} ions in Gd{sub 3}PO{sub 7} mainly occupied non-centrosymmetry sites. The CIE1931 XY chromaticitymore » coordinates of Gd{sub 3}PO{sub 7}:Eu{sup 3+} nanospheres are (x=0.654, y=0.345) in the red area, which is near the National Television Standard Committee standard chromaticity coordinates for red. Thus, Gd{sub 3}PO{sub 7}:Eu{sup 3+} nanospheres may be potential red-emitting phosphors for PDP and Xe-based mercury-free lamps. - Graphical abstract: SEM image of as-prepared Gd{sub 3}PO{sub 7}:Eu{sup 3+} nanospheres.
