In nano-capillaries of large aspect ratio, the attractive image charge force is strong enough to affect the trajectory of ions passing through capillaries and consequently to diminish the fraction of transmitted beam ions. We calculated the theoretically transmitted fraction, using an approached but CPU-friendly expression of the image charge force...

In nanocapillaries of large aspect ratio, the attractive image charge force is strong enough to affect the trajectory of ions passing through capillaries and consequently to diminish the fraction of transmitted beam ions. We calculated the theoretically transmitted fraction, using an expression of the image charge force valid in the case of a stati...

Experimental data are presented for low-energy singly charged ion transport between two insulating parallel plates. Using a beam intensity of approximately 20 pA, measurements of the incoming and transmitted beams provide quantitative temporal information about the charge deposited on the plates and the guiding probability. Using a smaller beam int...

When an ion beam is injected into a tapered insulating capillary, the induced self-organized radial Coulomb potential in the capillary is able to focus the beam like an electrostatic lens. However, because of the continued accumulation of charge in the capillary, an equilibrium is rarely attained and the injected beam is eventually Coulomb blocked...

The transmission rate of a low-energy Arq+ ion beam through a macroscopic glass tube of large aspect ratio is simulated. Secondary electron (SE) emission, induced by ion impacts with the inner surface of the capillary, are taken explicitly into account by adding a SE source term to the charge dynamics equation. We find that the additional SE channe...

When an ion beam is injected into a tapered insulating capillary, the induced self-organized radial potential in the capillary is able to focus the beam like an electrostatic lens. However, because of the continued accumulation of charge in the capillary, an equilibrium is rarely attained and the injected beam is eventually "Coulomb" blocked by the...

In this work, we model and simulate the shape evolution of critically charged droplets, from the initial spherical shape to the charge emission and back to the spherical shape. The shape deformation is described using the viscous correction for viscous potential flow model, which is a potential flow approximation of the Navier-Stokes equation for i...

In the first part, the experimental data, models and simulations of the droplet break-up of a critically charged droplet, from the initial spherical shape to the jet formation and
back to the spherical shape are presented. The effect of the viscosity and charge mobility on the spontaneous shape deformation are highlighted using a potential flow mod...

Synopsis
The transmission of a 1 keV Ar ⁺ beam between two glass plates was studied. We present experimental data with the goal to provide quantitative information about the buildup and decay of charge on the glass plates and how this correlates with the observed guiding.

Synopsis
The transmission of 1 keV Ar ⁺ ions through a macroscopic glass capillary is simulated by taking explicitly into account the secondary electron (SE) emission generated by ion impacts inside the capillary. The SE emission re-distributes the injected charge in the capillary wall and thus modifies the guiding power of insulating capillaries....

Experimental observation of the dynamics of a micro-focused, 1 MeV proton beam guided through a single, insulating macrocapillary is presented. The micrometer sized proton beam was center injected into a poly(tetrafluoroethylene) capillary with macroscopic dimensions. The capillary was tilted to 1° with respect to the beam, i.e. no geometrical tran...

The dynamics of the charge distribution produced at the inner surface of an insulating capillary by low energy ion impact are investigated theoretically in the case where the entrance, exit and outer capillary surface are grounded. Starting with the surface continuity equation, that describes the charge dynamics at the inner surface, we deduced an...

We present a combined experimental and theoretical study of the transmission of single charged 1 keV Ar ions through a cylindrical glass capillary of macroscopic dimensions. From quantitative measurements of the incoming and transmitted ion currents, combined with a detailed analysis, the amount of beam entering the capillary was determined. This,...

Synopsis In a combined theoretical and experimental study, we give for the first time evidence that insulating tappered capillaries are able to focus the injected ion beam like an Einzel lens. We show that, under certain conditions, the self-organized axisymmetric Coulomb potential generated by the injected charges is strong enough to focus the ion...

The transmission of 1 keV Ar + ions through a macroscopic glass capillary is simulated by taking explicitly into account the secondary electron (SE) emission generated by ion impacts inside the capillary. The SE emission redistributes the injected charge in the capillary wall and thus modifies the guiding power of insulating capillaries. Especially...

In a combined theoretical and experimental study, we give evidence that the self-organized electric potential in tapered glass capillaries has the strength to focus a low-energy ion beam. Similar to Einzel lenses, the on-axis injected beam is focused by an axis-symmetric potential, generated by the charge accumulated in the insulating capillary. We...

Insulating glass capillaries have been shown to lead to ion transmission without any change in either the ion charge state or in the ion kinetic energy. This surprising process has been attributed to a self-organized distribution of charge patches creating the necessary guiding electric potential on the capillary walls. By the use of our original e...

An innovative experimental setup, PELIICAEN, allowing the modification of materials and the study of the effects induced by multiply charged ion beams at the nanoscale is presented. This ultra-high vacuum (below 5 × 10−10 mbar) apparatus is equipped with a focused ion beam column using multiply charged ions and a scanning electron microscope develo...

The transmission as a function of the tilt angle of a 3 keV Ar⁺ ion beam through a conical macroscopic glass capillary is studied theoretically and experimentally. It was found that the charge patches which are responsible for the ion guiding also compress the beam spatially in the direction orthogonal to the patches, resulting into an enhancement...

The discharge properties of a macroscopic cylindrically shaped glass capillary, initially charged by a 1 keV Ar⁺ beam tilted by 5° whith respect to the capillary axis is studied. Our experimental observations were compared to our Monte Carlo simulation, higlighting the importance of the surface conductivity.

Transmission of 1 keV single charged nitrogen ions through a macroscopic tapered borosilicate glass capillary is studied theoretically and experimentally. Measured time trend of the transmission for different low beam intensities are given. They are compared to realistic microscopic calculation that allows simulating the transmission of charged par...

Experimental absolute partial inclusive cross sections for the production of OD + , OH + , and O + are reported and compared successfully to theoretical pred...

We present a matrix functional form to fit the nearly degenerated potential energy surface of the H2O-OH molecular complex. The functional form is based on second order perturbation theory, which allows us to define two diabatic states coupled together in the field of the surrounding water molecules. The fit reproduces faithfully the fine details o...

The potential energy curves of the X, A, and B states of alkali-rare gas diatomic molecules, MKr and MXe, are investigated for M = Li, Na, K. The molecular spin-orbit coefficients a(R)=〈(2)Π(12)|Ĥ(SO)|(2)Π(12)〉 and b(R)=〈(2)Π(-12)|Ĥ(SO)|(2)Σ(12)〉 are calculated as a function the interatomic distance R. We show that a(R) increases and b(R) decreases...

We present a short review on recent theoretical studies of the dynamics of small Na clusters in contact with Ar matrices, in some cases also on NaCl surfaces. We discuss the hierarchical modeling which treats the cluster fully quantum-mechanically and the substrate at a classical level. The dynamical polarizability of the substrate is properly take...

We present a theoretical investigation of visible absorption and related luminescence of alkali atoms (Li, Na, and K) embedded in Ar matrix.

The remarkable agreement between our calculated results...

Understanding of the molecular bond breakage selectivity, in order to
control the bond cleavage, is one of the most exciting challenges in
chemistry. The isotopomer of water HOD provides a three--atom prototype
for studying such bond selectivity. A strong isotopic effect is
evidenced in HOD^2+ ion fragmentation [1-2]. Moreover, the current
interest...

We investigate the relaxation of photoexcited Li(2)(+) chromophores solvated in Ne(n) clusters (n = 2-22) by means of molecular dynamics with surface hopping. The simplicity of the electronic structure of these ideal systems is exploited to design an accurate and computationally efficient model. These systems present two series of conical intersect...

For all these alkali, the lowest-energy isomers are obtained by aggregation of the first Ne atoms at the extremity of the alkali molecule. This particular geometry, common to...

We present non-adiabatic molecular dynamics simulations of size-selected Na2+ Arn (n=6-11-17) cluster. Their electronic structure is obtained from an accurate 1-electron model using core polarization pseudopotentials. We follow the dynamics of two specific photoexcitation processes (X2 Σ+g → A2Σ+u) and (X2 Σ+g → B2 Πu) during the first 10 ps. We id...

We present a detailed investigation of the ground and lowest excited states of M-Ne dimers, for M=Li, Na, and K. We show that the potential energy curves of these Van der Waals dimers can be obtained accurately by considering the alkali neon systems as one-electron systems. Following previous authors, the model describes the evolution of the alkali...

We present a theoretical study of Na2+ solvation in an argon matrix Arn for n = 1 to a few tens. We use a model based on an explicit description of valence electron interaction with Na+ and Ar cores by means of core polarization pseudopotential. The electronic structure determination is thus reduced to a one-electron problem, which can be handled e...

the number of H+ + OD+ over D+ +
OH+ dissociations of 6.5 ± 0.5. Moreover, the
coincid...

Several different time scales compete in metal clusters, Mie plasmon oscillations, Landau damping, electronic collisions, and ionic motion. It is the aim of this contribution to disentangle these using a palette of different dynamical observables: optical absorption, photo-electron spectroscopy (in energy and angular distributions), and pump-and-pr...

We present a semi-classical description of non-linear electron dynamics, able to take into account the dynamical correlations in form of an Ühling–Uhlenbeck collision term. These correlations should become important in the case of strongly excited dense electron systems, like a metal cluster irradiated by an intense femtosecond laser pulse. We show...

We present a theoretical study of the angular distribution of emitted electrons of a sodium cluster, irradiated by short and intense laser pulses. While the polarization of the excitation field tends to focus a directional emission, the dynamical correlations tend to thermalize the electrons, giving rise to a more isotropic ionization. The competit...
