The method of spin valence, developed by Born, Heitler, Rumer and Weyl for the treatment of molecular systems, becomes completely equivalent to the Slater method if the bonding forces are considered to be exerted between individual orbitals, and not between entire atoms in definite spectroscopic states. This change in the point of view eliminates several difficulties which were formerly present in the method (e.g., the obscuring of the directional properties of the valence bonds). The secular equation, for which a simplified derivation is given, is of quite a different form from the Slater equation, and the problem of its solution is considered in some detail. In addition to the rigorous methods, several approximate methods are given, of which two (applicable to unsaturated and aromatic hydrocarbons) do not require that the secular equ...
Amorphous films of Ni-W and Ni-N-W were deposited on single-crystal silicon with discharge gases of Ar or Ar+N2 by rf cosputtering of Ni and W. The reaction of these Ni-W and Ni-N-W films with the Si substrate were studied in the temperature range of 450–750 °C by a combination of backscattering spectrometry, x-ray diffraction, cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy, and resistivity measurements. Films with composition Ni36W64 are stable below 500 °C. NiSi and NiSi2 form at 500 °C, and WSi2 forms rapidly in the temperature range of 625–650 °C. The nickel silicide forms adjacent to and within the silicon, while the outer layer becomes a mixture of WSi2 and NiSi2. The morphologies of the reacted layers are revealed by cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy. The crystallization temperature of amorphous Ni36W64 films on...
The use of a rotating radial phase grating to carry out beam splitting and frequency shifting in a laser-Doppler velocimeter is briefly reviewed. This technique is not new. However, the present design adds a substantial new element by using two overlapping radial gratings to produce a two-channel system in which channel separation can be accomplished by electronic filtering of the signal from a single detector.
Optical (3–6.5 eV) reflection spectra are presented for crystalline Si implanted at room temperature with 40 keV Sb ions to doses of less than 2×10^15/cm^2. These spectra, and their deviation from the reflection spectrum of crystalline Si, are discussed in terms of a model based on the average dielectric properties of the implanted region. For samples having a high ion dose (>10^15/cm^2) the observed spectra resemble the spectra of sputtered Si films. Anneal characteristics of the reflection spectra are found to be dose dependent. These observations are compared to, and found to substantiate, the results of other experimental techniques for studying lattice damage in Si.
Self-consistent charge and configuration (SCCC) molecular orbital calculations are reported for 32 selected octahedral and tetrahedral first-row transition-metal complexes containing halide and chalcogenide ligands. It is found that for the range of metal oxidation states II through IV, Fsigma, chosen to fit the experimental Delta, is a function of only the metal atomic number for constant Fpi. In the range of formal metal oxidation numbers V through VII, Fsigma is also a function of oxidation number.Calculated and observed trends in covalency, Delta values, and first L-->M charge-transfer energies are compared. The conclusion is drawn that the molecular orbital method, in its present formulation, gives a reasonable account of the ground states and low excited states in simple metal complexes.
The distribution of matter within the transition layer between the two phases of a fluid system is considered. Approximate values are obtained for the superficial density of matter T, calculated with reference to the Gibbs surface of tension as the dividing surface between the phases.
A theory is given to explain the observed dependence on Reynolds number of the decay of turbulent line vortices. It is argued that the turbulent vortex has a triple structure. There is an outer region for r > r1 (r1 is the radius of maximum tangential velocity) with a logarithmic distribution of circulation, and for r < r1 an inner region and viscous core in both of which the motion is close to solid body rotation. It is predicted that r1 ~ (vT1 t2)1/4, where 1 is the circulation at r1. Further, T1/T0 is predicted to be a slowly decreasing function of T0/v, where T0 is the strength of the vortex. The development of an overshoot of circulation in the outer region is discussed, and the axial velocities produced by growth of a trailing vortex are calculated.
We study the source coding problem on a simple two-hop network with side information on the middle and end nodes. For the degraded case, where the side information at the end node is weaker than the side information at the middle node, a complete characterization of the rate-distortion region is derived.
Models of the collision integral are developed for polyatomic structureless molecules subject to certain classes of phenomenological energy exchange between internal and translational energy modes in binary collisions. The exchange is described either by a model differential cross section for energy scattering or equivalently by a set of pair pseudo-internal coordinates which correlate pre- and post- collision values of the particle energies. Restrictions placed on admissible models of the exchange process are identified and one recently proposed special model is reformulated under these conditions. Chapman–Enskog type transport properties for this model are evaluated and its behavior in the context of the Monte-Carlo direct simulation method is discussed briefly.
A low threshold buried heterostructure laser, a metal-semiconductor field-effect transistor, and a p-i-n photodiode have been integrated on a semi-insulating GaAs substrate. The circuit was operated as a rudimentary optical repeater. The gain bandwidth product of the repeater was measured to be 178 MHz.
