Title: Model for resonant plasma probe.

Abstract

This report constructs simple circuit models for a hairpin shaped resonant plasma probe. Effects of the plasma sheath region surrounding the wires making up the probe are determined. Electromagnetic simulations of the probe are compared to the circuit model results. The perturbing effects of the disc cavity in which the probe operates are also found.

  • Core-level spectroscopy in the soft X-ray regime is a powerful tool for the study of chemical bonding processes. The ultrafast, ultrabright X-ray pulses generated by the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) allow these reactions to be studied in greater detail than ever before. In this study, we investigated a conceptual design of a spectrometer for the LCLS with imaging in the non-dispersive direction. This would allow single-shot collection of X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) measurements with varying laser pump X-ray probe delay or a variation of incoming X-ray energy over the illuminated area of the sample. Ray-tracing simulations were used tomore » demonstrate how the components of the spectrometer affect its performance, allowing a determination of the optimal final design. These simulations showed that the spectrometer's non-dispersive focusing is extremely sensitive to the size of the sample footprint; the spectrometer is not able to image a footprint width larger than one millimeter with the required resolution. This is compatible with a single shot scheme that maps out the laser pump X-ray probe delay in the non-dispersive direction as well as resonant XES applications at normal incidence. However, the current capabilities of the Soft X-Ray (SXR) beamline at the LCLS do not produce the required energy range in a small enough sample footprint, hindering the single shot resonant XES application at SXR for chemical dynamics studies at surfaces. If an upgraded or future beamline at LCLS is developed with lower monochromator energy dispersion the width can be made small enough at the required energy range to be imaged by this spectrometer design.« less
  • Raman scattering measurements were performed on GaAs samples that have been irradiated with either high energy electrons or neutrons. New, relatively sharp peaks were observed in the Raman spectra of the irradiated samples and are attributed to vibrational modes of a specific point defect created by the irradiation. On the basis of annealing experiments, one of these modes is most likely associated with an As vacancy. The observed polarization dependence suggests that this can be a ''breathing'' vibration of the atoms surrounding the vacancy. Experiments were performed that measured the lineshape of the enhancement of the Raman cross section ofmore » both the intrinsic and extrinsic modes near the band gap of GaAs using a tunable near infrared laser. It was observed that the enhancement of the defect-induced modes was strong relative to the enhancement of the allowed TO phonon, which itself exhibits a strong enhancement. The observed enhancement lineshape can be explained by assuming that the scattering involving the defect-induced modes occurs via a fourth-order process. During this process quasi-momentum conservation is relaxed when electrons or holes scatter elastically from defects. It is concluded that the strong resonant enhancement occurs when the vibrational modes involved have a component that is well localized around a defect.« less
