Title: Structure of the Co and FeK alpha(3,4) Satellite Spectra

Abstract

The K{alpha}{sub 3,4} satellite spectra, originating in the [1s2p]{sup -1}{yields} [2p]{sup -2} transition, were measured with high resolution for Co and Fe, using photoexcitation by tunable monochromatized synchrotron radiation. Fits to a phenomenological sum of Voigt functions and to ab initio relativistic Dirac-Fock-calculated spectra resolved the structure underlying the spectra. The dependence of the satellites' intensity on the excitation energy yielded accurate values for the excitation thresholds. The shake-theory-based Thomas model was found to deviate from the measured intensities, indicating near-threshold major contributions from non-shake excitation processes, such as the knockout, or 'two step one,' effect.

  • K..cap alpha.. x-ray satellites following K-electron capture in /sup 55/Fe and electron impact on Mn have been measured with a high-resolution spectrometer. Ratios of double- to single-vacancy-production probability are found to be P/sub K/L = (2.5 +- 0.5) x 10/sup -3/ and (9.5 +- 0.9) x 10/sup -3/ for capture and impact, respectively. An evaluation of vacancy rearrangement in the L shell before satellite emission has been carried out with the use of published level widths. It is found that in electron impact, as distinct from K capture, essentially only satellites associated with a 2p spectator vacancy are observed. Thismore » observation is at variance with certain commonly used satellite assignments. Energies and intensities of the satellite transitions have been calculated in intermediate coupling and coordinations are proposed for the stronger lines.« less
  • Much of the study on thiophenes has been motivated by the desire to model essential steps of the metal-catalyzed hydrodesulfurization of fossil fuels. Because much of the [open quotes]organic sulfur[close quotes] in fossil fuels is contained in benzo[2,3-b]thiophene and dibenzothiophene groupings, the coordination chemistry of these thiophenes has received considerable attention. In contrast, the coordination chemistry of the nonclassical thiophenes (for which all singlet, uncharged resonance forms invoke C-S double bonding) and benzo[3,4-c]thiophene (1, [open quotes]isothianaphthene[close quotes]) is completely undeveloped. Benzo[c]thiophene (1) is prepared by the dehydration of dihydrobenzo[c]thiophene oxide on alumina. Traces of Lewis acids promote its rapid polymerizationmore » to [open quotes]poly-(dihydroisothianaphthene)[close quotes] with a saturated backbone, which can be readily dehydrogenated to [open quotes]poly(isothianaphthene)[close quotes] (PITN). Oxidatively doped PITN is an optically transparent, electrochromic polymer of considerable technological interest, having an amazingly small energy gap (approximately 1 eV) and an electrical conductivity up to approximately 50 [Omega][sup [minus]1] cm[sup [minus]1]. These properties piqued our interest in the synthesis and behavior of transition metal complexes with benzo[3,4-c]thiophene and nonclassical thiophenes as ligands. The reaction of benzo[3,4-c]thiophene with photolytically generated [Cr(thf)(CO)[sub 5]] at room temperature leads to [Cr-(C[sub 8]H[sub 6]/S) (CO)[sub 3]] (2) in up to 62% yield. 34 refs.« less
  • The K..cap alpha.. satellite spectra of Si in the gases SiH/sub 4/ and SiF/sub 4/, of S in the gases H/sub 2/S, SO/sub 2/, and SF/sub 6/, of Cl in the gases HCl and Cl/sub 2/ and in the liquid CCl/sub 4/, and of gaseous Ar produced by bombardment with oxygen ions were examined in detail and compared with the spectra of solid compounds obtained in a previous study. It was found that the apparent average state of L-shell ionization at the time of K..cap alpha.. x-ray emission does not depend upon the physical state, but upon the availability ofmore » electrons from nearest-neighbor atoms. The K..cap alpha.. satellite energies in conjunction with Hartree-Fock calculations provide a measure of the average numbers of missing M-shell electrons, and this information further supports the conclusion that interatomic electron transfer dominates the fast rearrangement occurring prior to K..cap alpha.. x-ray emission in atoms having highly depleted M shells. Various K..cap alpha.. satellite peak-broadening mechanisms were considered and it was found that broadening due to the distribution of M-shell vacancies accounts for a significant portion of the total peak width.« less
  • Satellite spectra of the {ital K}{alpha} line of heliumlike nickel, Ni XXVII, recorded from tokamak-fusion-test reactor (TFTR) Ohmic plasmas with well-defined experimental conditions and central electron temperatures in the range 2--5 keV, have been compared with theoretical predictions. The relevant plasma parameters that determine the spectral features, i.e., the electron and ion temperatures, and the relative abundances of Ni XXV, Ni XXVI, and Ni XXVII have been obtained from least-squares fits of synthetic spectra to the experimental data. Both the dielectronic satellites and the satellites which are produced by collisional inner-shell excitation are well described by the theory given bymore » Bombarda {ital et} {ital al}. (Phys. Rev. A 37, 504 (1988)) and Vainshtein and Safronova (unpublished). The electron-temperature results derived from the fits are in good agreement with electron-temperature measurements from independent diagnostics. However, the values obtained for the relative abundances of Ni XXV, Ni XXVI, and Ni XXVII are larger by factors of 1.3--2 compared to recent coronal-equilibrium predictions of Zastrow, Kaellne, and Summers (Phys. Rev. A 41, 1427 (1990)). Plasma-modeling calculations performed with the multi-ion-species-transport (R. A. Hulse, Nucl. Technol. Fusion 3, 259 (1983)) code show that these deviations can be explained by radial ion transport assuming for the ion-transport diffusion coefficient {ital D} values in the range 1--2.5 m{sup 2} s{sup {minus}1}.« less
  • Spectrometry of K/sub ..cap alpha../ radiation emitted during the interaction of an intense particle beam with matter is proposed as a diagnostic. Temperature measurement is possible through the detailed analysis of the K/sub ..cap alpha../ satellite spectrum. The role of line self-absorption for this and other K/sub ..cap alpha../ measurements is discussed. The feasibility of such measurements is demonstrated in an electron beam-target interaction experiment.
