We elucidate photoexcitation dynamics in C-60 and zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) from picoseconds to milliseconds by transient absorption and time-resolved terahertz spectroscopy. Autoionization of C-60 is a precursor to photocarrier generation. Decay of the terahertz signal is due to decreasing photocarrier mobility over the first 20 ps and thereafter reflects recombination dynamics. Singlet diffusion rates in C-60 are determined by modeling the rise of ground state bleaching of ZnPc absorption following C-60 excitation. Recombination dynamics transform from bimolecular to monomolecular as the layer thickness is reduced, revealing a metastable exciplex at the C-60/ZnPc interface with a lifetime of 150 mu s.

We present a study of photo-induced carrier dynamics in organic thin films that contain zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) and buckminsterfullerene (C-60) investigated by ultrafast time resolved terahertz spectroscopy (TRTS). We compare two classes of films: 1) blend films of ZnPc and C-60 prepared by co-evaporation, and 2) superlattice films from alternating neat layers of ZnPc and C-60, where the individual layer varies in thickness between 2 nm and 40 nm. These films are model structures for the charge generatio...
Direct Calculation of Entropy Generation by Solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport Equation in an Air-Cooled Turbine Cascade
Orhan, Omer Emre; Uzol, Oğuz (2012-06-15)
This paper presents an implementation of directly solving Reynolds-Averaged Entropy Transport equation as a part of the CFD solution to predict entropy generation rates in a two-dimensional turbine blade stator section. The Reynolds Averaged Entropy Transport and the necessary modeling. equations are implemented to a commercial CFD solver as a User Defined Scalar (UDS). The results are compared with those obtained by post-processing the temperature and velocity fields obtained by solving full Navier-Stokes ...
Molecular-dynamics simulations of surface and bulk properties of Zn, Cd, and ZnCd systems
Amirouche, L; Erkoç, Şakir (Wiley, 2004-02-01)
Surface and bulk properties of Zn, Cd, and ZnCd systems have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics simulations using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function for these systems, which comprices two- and three-body atomic interactions. Surface reconstruction and multilayer relaxation on clean surfaces, adatom on surface, substitutional atom on surface and bulk materials, and vacancy on surface and bulk materials have been studied extensively.

Multinucleon transfer in central collisions of U-238+U-238
Ayik, S.; YILMAZ, BÜLENT; YILMAZ TÜZÜN, ÖZGÜL; Umar, A. S.; Turan, Gürsevil (2017-08-14)
Quantal diffusion mechanism of nucleon exchange is studied in the central collisions of U-238 + U-238 in the framework of the stochastic mean-field (SMF) approach. For bombarding energies considered in this work, the dinuclear structure is maintained during the collision. Hence, it is possible to describe nucleon exchange as a diffusion process for mass and charge asymmetry. Quantal neutron and proton diffusion coefficients, including memory effects, are extracted from the SMF approach and the primary fragm...
Leading order analysis of neutrino induced dimuon events in the CHORUS experiment
Kayis-Topaksu, A.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2008-07-21)
We present a leading order QCD analysis of a sample of neutrino induced charged-current events with two muons in the final state originating in the lead-scintillating fibre calorimeter of the CHORUS detector. The results are based on a sample of 8910 neutrino and 430 antineutrino induced opposite-sign dimuon events collected during the exposure of the detector to the CERN Wide Band Neutrino Beam between 1995 and 1998. The analysis yields a value of the charm quark mass of m(c) = (1.26 +/- 0.16 +/- 0.09) GeV...
