A laser diode absorption spectrometer is coupled with a continuous dilution system for real-time monitoring of indigo dyeing of denim yarn. The reduced form of indigo in the dyebath is continuously pumped by a peristaltic pump into a mixing cuvette, where it is diluted by a factor of 80 with aerated water and oxidized into its stable form. This solution is then pumped into the sampling cell of the laser diode spectrometer for absorption measurements. Monochromatic radiation emitted from the laser diode at 635 nm is used to measure indigo absorption at the shoulder of a broad absorption peak. A linear calibration curve is obtained in a concentration range between 10 and 150 mg/L with a linear regression coefficient of r(2) = 0.9993, which corresponds to indigo concentrations in the dyebath covering the range between 0.8-12 g/L. This range exceeds indigo concentrations typically used in industry, which range between 1-3 g/L. The reproducibility of measurements is 0.5%. In this technique, there is no interference due to sulfur compounds present in the dyebath, which is a problem with electrochemical titration methods commonly used for indigo determinations.


Optical characterization of Ga2SeS layered crystals by transmission, reflection and ellipsometry
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2015-07-10)
Optical properties of Ga2SeS crystals grown by Bridgman method were investigated by transmission, reflection and ellipsometry measurements. Analysis of the transmission and reflection measurements performed in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm at room temperature indicated the presence of indirect and direct transitions with 2.28 eV and 2.38 eV band gap energies. Ellipsometry measurements were carried out in the 1.2-6.0 eV spectral region to get information about optical constants, real and imaginary part...
Polymerization and characterization of trihalophenolato cerium(IV) complexes in the solid state and in the melt
Senturk, O; Kisakurek, D (Informa UK Limited, 2003-01-01)
The synthesis of trihalophenolate cerium (IV) complexes from an aqueous solution and their characterizations by means of FTIR, DSC, elemental analyses, mass spectroscopy, and magnetic susceptibility measurements are described. The thermal polymerizations of these complexes were carried out in the solid state and in the melt. Structural analyses of polymers were performed by H-1-NMR, C-13-NMR, and FTIR spectroscopic analyses; T-g by differential scanning calorimetry; as well as the molecular weights by visco...
Acidity characterization and adsorption characteristics of cobalt and lead doped SBA15 mesoporous materials
Güner, Özge; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study, the surface acidity of Co and/or Pb doped SBA15 mesoporous catalysts were investigated by both diffuse reflectance fourier transform (DRIFT) infrared spectroscopy and transmission mode fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Pyridine was used to identify the Brønsted and Lewis acid sites of the surface, at room temperature. From the DRIFT spectrum typical stretching vibrations of isolated terminal silanol (Si-OH) groups were observed for all the catalysts. These silanol group bands dissappea...
Measurement of the inclusive 3-jet production differential cross section in proton-proton collisions at 7 TeV and determination of the strong coupling constant in the TeV range
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-05-01)
This paper presents a measurement of the inclusive 3-jet production differential cross section at a proton-proton centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5 fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector. The analysis is based on the three jets with the highest transverse momenta. The cross section is measured as a function of the invariant mass of the three jets in a range of 445-3270 GeV and in two bins of the maximum rapidity of the jets up to a value of 2. A compari...

This review is based on the electroluminescent and optical properties of certain polyaromatics in OLEDs with special attention to their specific function in the emitting layer, performance and emissive color. DAD and TDAD dopants depending on their concentration in the emitting layer exhibit good efficiencies and color purity for blue emission. When copolyethers with diphenylanthracene emitting segments are used in a single layer diode, visible pure blue light (440 nm maximum) around 15-20V can be achieved....
