Energetics and structures of small clusters: Pt(N), N=2-21

The Voter and Chen version of an embedded-atom model, derived by fitting to experimental data of both diatomic molecule and bulk platinum simultaneously, has been applied to study the locally stable structures, energies and growth patterns of small platinum clusters in the size range of N = 2-21. Using molecular dynamics and thermal quenching simulations, the global minima and the other locally stable structures have been distinguished from those stationary structures that correspond to saddle points of the potential energy surface. Ten thousand independent initial configurations generated at high temperatures (about 2600 K) were used to obtain the number of isomers and the probabilities of sampling different basins of attractions, for each size of the clusters. Their energy spectra have been analyzed. Comparisons have been made with the results of previous calculations using electronic structure and empirical potential methods. Although many of the lowest energy structures correspond to icosahedral growth, a number of new structures have been identified for N = 15, 16, 17, 18, 20 and 21. It has been found that the lowest energy structures are not always the most probable isomers for each size.

Atomic and electronic structure of group-IV adsorbates on the GaAs(001)-(1 x 2) surface
Usanmaz, D.; ÇAKMAK, MELEK; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (Elsevier BV, 2009-09-01)
Ab initio calculations, based on pseudopotentials and density functional theory, have been performed to investigate the atomic and electronic structure of the group-IV adsorbates (C, Si, Ge, Sn, and Pb) on the GaAs(001)-(1 x 2) surface considered in two different models: (i) non-segregated Ga-IV-capped structure and (ii) segregated structure in which the group-IV atoms occupying the second layer while the As atom floats to the surface. The non-segregated structure is energetically more favorable than the se...
Kinetics of polyurethane formation between glycidyl azide polymer and a triisocyanate
Keskin, S; Özkar, Saim (Wiley, 2001-07-25)
Kinetics of the polyurethane formation between glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and a polyisocyanate, Desmodur N-100, were studied in the bulk state by using quantitative FTIR spectroscopy. The reaction was followed by monitoring the change in intensity of the absorption band at 2270 cm-l for NCO stretching in the IR spectrum, and was shown to obey second-order kinetics up to 50% conversion. The activation parameters were obtained from the evaluation of kinetic data at different temperatures in the range of 50-...
Adsorption and dissociation of PH3 on SiGe(100) (2x1) surface
Turkmenoglu, Mustafa; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2008-06-01)
The most stable structures for the adsorption and dissociation of phosphine (PH3) on SiGe(100) (2 x 1) surface have been investigated by relative total energy calculations based on density functional theory. According to the optimization calculations, PH3 is adsorbed on the Si (down) and Ge (down) site of the Ge-Si and Ge-Ge dimers on SiGe surface, respectively. The PH2 and H products have been found to be thermodynamically favored in the dissociation path of PH3 on SiGe surface when the system is thermally...
Thermodynamics of small platinum clusters
Sebetci, A; Guvenc, ZB; Kökten, Hatice (Elsevier BV, 2006-03-01)
Using the Voter and Chen version of an embedded atom model, derived by fitting simultaneously to experimental data of both the diatomic molecule and bulk platinum, we have studied the melting behavior of free, small platinum clusters in the size range of N = 15-19 in the molecular dynamics simulation technique. We present an atom-resolved analysis method that includes physical quantities such as the root-mean-square bond-length fluctuation and coordination number for individual atoms as functions of tempera...
Effect of low-energy electron irradiation on (Bi, Pb)-2212 superconductors
Ogun, SE; Goktas, H; Ozkan, H; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2005-06-22)
The effect of low-energy electron irradiation on the properties of the Bi-based superconductors is studied. Two sets of polycrystalline (Bi, Pb)-2212 samples were synthesized by heating the appropriate mixtures of powders at 840 degrees C for 100 h, then quenched or furnace cooled to room temperature. The samples were irradiated by low-energy (1-10 keV), pulsed (20 ns) electron beam up to a dose of 6.2 x 10(15) cm(-2). X- ray diffraction patterns, resistance-temperature behaviours, critical currents, and mi...
