Static average polarizabilities, alpha, and second hyperpolarizabilities, gamma, of ZnmCdn nanoclusters for m + n = 2 - 6 have been calculated, at the ab initio level, using effective core potentials (ECP). We have developed in a systematic way a series of basis sets. Employing a hierarchy of methods (HF, MP2, CCSD, CCSD(T)), we have computed the polarizability of Cd. The alpha value we computed is in excellent agreement with the best theoretical and experimental values. From the set of the designed basis sets we selected one, for the calculation of the polarizabilities of the considered clusters, which gives a satisfactory alpha value for Cd, at a low computational cost. The basis set for Zn has been reported in our recent study of the properties of Zn-m. We have also employed the basis sets developed by Kello and Sadlej in order to compute the relativistic correction to alpha, which has been compared with the corresponding correlation contribution to alpha of ZnmCdn. We have employed two ECPs, having a small and a large core. The polarizability results for Cd-m, which have been computed by employing them, agree at the HF level, but at the MP2 level have a remarkable difference. The variation of alpha/m as a function of m for Zn-m and Cd-m, has been discussed. The average second hyperpolarizabilities of all clusters, at the MP2 level, are well described by a linear function of the composition of the clusters using constant atomic increments.


Frequency shifts of the disorder-induced modes close to the tricritical phase transition in NH4Cl
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Old City Publishing, Inc, 2003-01-01)
We have studied the Raman frequencies of the disorder-induced modes of v, (93 cm(-1)) and v(5) (144 cm(-1)) close to the tricritical phase transition in NH4Cl (P 1.6 kbar, T. 257 K). Using our observed Raman data for these phonon modes, we have obtained the value of the exponent a approximate to 0.3 for the frequency shifts, which can describe the critical behaviour of the thermal expansivity a, and also of the specific heat Cp. Our exponent value can be compared with the value of 0.1 predicted by the 3d Is...
Effect of Sm on Crystallization Kinetics of Cu-Zr-Al Metallic Glasses
Sıkan, F.; Polat, G.; Kalay, I.; Kalay, Yunus Eren (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
The effect of Sm micro-alloying on non-isothermal and isothermal crystallization kinetics of (Zr50Cu40Al10)(100-x)Sm-x (x = 0, 2, 4 at. % Sm) alloys were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Crystallization activation energies for each composition were calculated in non-isothermal conditions using Kissinger and Ozawa methods and in isothermal conditions using Johnson-Mehl-Avrami model. XRD analysis showed that crysta...
Structure-impact sensitivity relation of some substituted 1,3,5-trinitrobenzenes
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2005-07-11)
Structure-impact sensitivity relation of some substituted 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene type explosives is investigated by using a topological approach. It has been found that the sensitivity increases with decreasing of a previously defined upper bound (U) of the deepest lying molecular orbital energy, x(1), or the fourth coefficient (a(4)) of the secular polynomial of the molecular graph of the isoconjugate hydrocarbon system within the Huckel molecular orbital framework.
Bessel basis with applications: N-dimensional isotropic polynomial oscillators
Taşeli, Hasan (Wiley, 1997-06-20)
The efficient technique of expanding the wave function into a Fourier-Bessel series to solve the radial Schrodinger equation with polynomial potentials, V(r) = Sigma(i=1)(K) v(2i)r(2i), in two dimensions is extended to N-dimensional space. It is shown that the spectra of two- and three-dimensional oscillators cover the spectra of the corresponding N-dimensional problems for all N. Extremely accurate numerical results are presented for illustrative purposes. The connection between the eigenvalues of the gene...
The strong dimer of Ge-60, Ge-116
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2004-03-01)
The strong dimer of Ge-60, Ge-116, is considered for MNDOd and AM1 type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations within the limitations of restricted Hartree-Fock formalism. Both methods predict this, yet non-existent, structure to be stable but highly endothermic. Some geometrical and quantum chemical data are presented.
