Computational characterization of the HOMO-2 photoemission intensity oscillations in C-60

We have calculated the photoionization cross section of the HOMO, HOMO-1 and HOMO-2 photoemission bands of C-60 from threshold up to 250 eV of photon energy. The calculated HOMO-2/HOMO-1 intensity ratio is in excellent agreement with recent experimental data. The computational method uses a multicentric expansion of the scattering wave function and a density functional theory (DFT) Hamiltonian. Time dependent DFT calculations suggest that the oscillatory phenomenon is essentially of single particle nature. An interpretation of the experimental findings in terms of the sigma-pi symmetries of the ionized orbitals is provided.


Computational electro-chemo-mechanics of lithium-ion battery electrodes at finite strains
Dal, Hüsnü (2015-02-01)
A finite strain theory for electro-chemo-mechanics of lithium ion battery electrodes along with a monolithic and unconditionally stable finite element algorithm for the solution of the resulting equation systems is proposed. The chemical concentration and the displacement fields are introduced as independent variables for the formulation diffusion-mechanics coupling. The electrochemistry of the surface reaction kinetics is imposed at the boundary in terms of the Butler-Volmer kinetics. The intrinsic couplin...
Computational and experimental study of high-speed impact of metallic Taylor cylinders
Konokman, H. Emrah; Coruh, M. Murat; Kayran, Altan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-08-01)
High-speed impact of metallic Taylor cylinders is investigated computationally and experimentally. On the computational side, a modular explicit finite element hydrocode based on updated Lagrangian formulation is developed. A non-classical contour integration is employed to calculate the nodal forces in the constant strain axisymmetric triangular elements. Cell and nodal averaging of volumetric strain formulations are implemented on different mesh architectures to reduce the incompressibility constraints an...
Analytical Solutions to the Klein-Gordon Equation with Position-Dependent Mass for q-Parameter Poschl-Teller Potential
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan; TEZCAN, CEVDET (IOP Publishing, 2010-01-01)
The energy eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenfunctions of the one-dimensional Klein-Gordon equation with q-parameter Poschl-Teller potential are analytically obtained within the position-dependent mass formalism. The parametric generalization of the Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the calculations by choosing a mass distribution.
Approximate Solutions of Dirac Equation with Hyperbolic-Type Potential
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (2015-09-01)
The energy eigenvalues of a Dirac particle for the hyperbolic-type potential field have been computed approximately. It is obtained a transcendental function of energy, F(E), by writing in terms of confluent Heun functions. The numerical values of energy are then obtained by fixing the zeros on "E-axis" for both complex functions Re[F(E)] and Im[F(E)].
Search for WW gamma and WZ gamma production and constraints on anomalous quartic gauge couplings in pp collisions at root s=8 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (2014-08-01)
A search for WV gamma triple vector boson production is presented based on events containing a W boson decaying to a muon or an electron and a neutrino, a second V (W or Z) boson, and a photon. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 19.3 fb(-1) collected in 2012 with the CMS detector at the LHC in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV. An upper limit of 311 fb on the cross section for the WV gamma production process is obtained at 95% confidence level for photons with a transverse energy above 30 GeV ...
