Raman measurement was performed in the range of 50–1000 cm−1 and 11 active vibration modes were defined in the spectrum. The nature of the observed modes was discussed in detail. Optical absorption of the material was investigated utilizing room temperature transmission and reflection experiments in the spectral range of 360–1000 nm. Spectral changes of absorption coefficient, skin depth, refractive index, optical conductivity, and complex dielectric function of PbMoO4 crystals were studied. Absorption coefficient and optical conductivity exhibited strong increment around 3.0 eV with increasing photon energy. Cut-off wavelength was determined to be 390 nm from the skin depth spectrum. Tauc and derivative spectral analyses revealed the presence of direct bandgap with the energy of 3.05 eV. The static refractive index and dielectric constant were estimated as 2.25 and 5.08, respectively, using Wemple–DiDomenico single oscillator model. Urbach energy was calculated to be 0.071 eV from the exponential dependence of absorption coefficient to photon energy. Dielectric constant increased to 5.42 with energy up to 2.60 eV and then it exhibited decreasing behavior. Second energy derivative analysis of imaginary dielectric function resulted in existence of a critical point at 3.19 eV. First- and third-order nonlinear susceptibilities and nonlinear refractive index were found to be 0.32, 1.9 × 10−12 and 31.7 × 10−12 esu, respectively. These results show that the material may be used in UV filter and sensor applications.

Real-time measurement of laser beam characteristics for a waterjet-guided laser machine
Subasi, Levent; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Yaman, Ulaş (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag London Ltd., part of Springer Nature.Waterjet-guided laser machining is a novel process used for precision cutting and drilling of various materials and geometries. There are many noise factors in the process affecting the laser beam characteristics, namely the effective cutting length and laser power in the waterjet. Although these variables are mainly set by the laser and waterjet parameters, uncontrollable factors result in variations. Pre...
Valorization of Apple Pomace Via Single Cell Oil Production Using Oleaginous Yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides
Tuhanioglu, Arda; Hamamcı, Haluk; Alpas, Hami; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature B.V.Apple pomace was used as a sole raw material for single cell oil (SCO) production by the oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides DSM 4444. Preliminary studies with glucose medium revealed 100 mL of working volume in 500 mL Erlenmeyer flask as the most efficient in terms of lipid content. Thus, apple pomace hydrolysate was tested in six different conditions using 100 mL medium. The detoxified hydrolysate without chemical supplement (D m...
Tensionless strings and Killing(-Yano) tensors
Lindström, Ulf; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (2022-06-10)
© 2022 The Author(s)We construct invariants for bosonic and spinning tensionless (null) strings in backgrounds that carry Killing tensors or Killing-Yano tensors of mixed type. This is facilitated by the close relation of these strings to point particles. We apply the construction to the Minkowski and to the Kerr-Newman backgrounds.

Akalın, Ali Aykut; Dedekargınoğlu, Barış; Choi, Sae Rome; Han, Bumsoo; Özçelikkale, Altuğ (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.Computational modeling of drug delivery is becoming an indispensable tool for advancing drug development pipeline, particularly in nanomedicine where a rational design strategy is ultimately sought. While numerous in silico models have been developed that can accurately describe nanoparticle interactions with the bioenvironment within prescribed length and time scales, predictive design of these d...
Cultural values, national personality characteristics, and intelligence as correlates of corruption: A nation level analysis
Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Lajunen, Timo (2022-05-01)
© 2022 The Author(s)Research on national corruption has primarily focused on economics and politics, whereas cultural factors and especially national personality characteristics have attracted less attention. In the present study, the influence of Hofstede's cultural dimensions, Schwartz's values, Eysenckian personality factors (EPQ), and national intelligent quotient (IQ) on Corruption Perception Index (CPI) scores were studied by using aggregated data from 64 countries and ecological design, i.e., correla...
