  • Preparation of Nitrogen-Doped Carbon Catalyst to Oxygen Reduction Reaction
           and Influence of Protective Gas Flowing on Its Activity
    • Authors: Zhong-ping Xiong; Yu-jun Si, Hong Yu, Min-jiao Li Mao-xue Chen
      Abstract: A non-precious metal catalyst MnHMTA/C to oxygen reduction reaction was prepared by pyrolyzing a precursor from manganese chloride, hexamethylenetetramine and acetylene black in nitrogen gas atmosphere. The effect of heat treatmenttemperature and flowing of nitrogen gas were investigated. A catalyst with the highest activity can be obtained at 700 °C. Mn(II) ion was changed to MnO in heat treatment, which improved the catalytic activity of the catalyst. Hexamethylenetetramine takes part in the formation of active site of the catalyst as its decomposed gases. The flowing of protective gas takes the decomposed gases out of the tube furnace and brings negative effect on the catalytic activity of the MnHMTA/C catalyst.

  • Performances of Five Representative Force Fields on Gaseous Amino Acids
           with Different Termini
    • Authors: Xin Chen; Zi-jing Lin
      Abstract: There is a growing interest in the study of structures and properties of biomolecules in gas phase. Applications of force fields are highly desirable for the computational efficiency of the gas phase study. To help the selection of force fields, the performances of five representative force fields for gaseous neutral, protonated, deprotonated and capped amino acids are systematically examined and compared. The tested properties include relative conformationalenergies,energy differences between cis and trans structures, the number and strength of predicted hydrogen bonds, and the quality of the optimized structures. The results of BHandHLYP/6-311++G(d,p) are used as the references. GROMOS53A6 and ENCADS are found to perform poorly for gaseous biomolecules, while the performance of AMBER99SB, CHARMM27 and OPLSAA/L are comparable when applicable. Considering the general availability of the force field parameters, CHARMM27 is the most recommended, followed by OPLSAA/L, for the study of biomolecules in gas phase.

  • Tunneling Electron Induced Fluorescence from Single Porphyrin Molecules
           Decoupled by Striped-Phase Octanethiol Self-assembled Monolayer
    • Authors: Yan-min Kuang; Yun-jie Yu, Yang Luo, Jia-zhe Zhu, Yuan Liao, Yang Zhang Zhen-chao Dong
      Abstract: We investigate tunneling electron induced luminescence from isolated single porphyrin molecules that are decoupled by striped-phase self-assembledmonolayer of octanethiol from the underneath Au(111) substrate. Intrinsic single-moleculeelectroluminescence has been realized by such decoupling at both bias polarities. The photon emission intensity acquired from the molecular lobe is found stronger than that from the molecular center. These results provide useful information on the understanding of electroluminescent behavior and mechanism in molecular tunnel junctions.

  • Photocatalytic Activity Improvement of g-C3N4 under Visible Light by
           Optimizing Preparation Conditions
    • Authors: Jian-yang Hu; Guo-li Zhu
      Abstract: Graphite-like C3N4 (g-C3N4) is an efficient visible-light-driven photocatalyst which is commonly used in pollutant degradation. The photoreactivity of g-C3N4 depends on the preparation conditions to a large extent. In this work, we linked the preparation conditions of g-C3N4 to its stability and photocatalytic activity through dye photodegradation experiments and sensitivity mathematical analyses. The sensitivity mathematical analyses show that the effect of calcination temperature is more significant than calcination time on the photoreactivity of g-C3N4. The photocatalytic activity of optimized g-C3N4 in rhodamine B (RhB) degradation under visible light was 100 times higher than that of non-optimized one. The enhanced performance can be attributed to the increased specific surface area of g-C3N4 and the increased migration velocity of photogenerated electron-hole pairs on the surface. This work deepens the understanding of the relation between preparation conditions and the charateristics of g-C3N4, and provides an extremely simple method for significantly improving the photoreactivity of g-C3N4.

  • Raman Spectra of Liquid Nitromethane under Singly Shocked Conditions
    • Authors: Ya-ping Wang; Fu-sheng Liu, Qi-jun Liu Ning-chao Zhang
      Abstract: Raman spectra of liquid nitromethane were measured in single-shock experiments using transient Raman scattering system with high sensitivity. The measurement system was combined with a two-stage light gas gun to interrogate the vibrational mode-dependent behaviors of shock-compressed nitromethane molecules. Up to 12 GPa, all Raman peaks were able to be clearly detected, and showed the shock-induced shifting and broadening, but no signs of chemical changes occurred in the sample. Thus, it is concluded that chemical reactions could not be initiated in singly-shocked nitromethane below 12 GPa.

  • Substituent Effects on Reduction Potentials of Meta-substituted and
           Para-substituted Benzylideneanilines
    • Authors: Lin-yan Wang; Chao-tun Cao Chen-zhong Cao
      Abstract: Effects of meta-substituent of 3,4′/4,3′/3,3′-substituted benzylideneanilines (XBAYs) on the electrochemical reduction potentials (E(Red)) were investigated, in which 49 samples of target compounds were synthesized, and their reduction potentials were measured by cyclic voltammetry. The substituent effects on the E(Red) of target compounds were analyzed and an optimality equation with four parameters (Hammett constant σ of X, Hammett constant σ of Y, excited-state substituent constant σCCex of X, and the substituent specific cross-interaction effect ΔσCCex 2 between X and Y) was obtained. The results show that the factors affecting the E(Red) of 3,4′/4,3′/3,3′-substituted XBAYs are different from those of 4,4′-substituted XBAYs. For 3,4′/4,3′/3,3′-substituted XBAYs, σ(X) and σ(Y) must be employed, and the contribution of ΔσCCex 2 is important and not negligible. Compared with 4,4′-substituted XBAYs, X group contributes less to 3,4′/4,3′/3,3′-substituted XBAYs, while Y group contributes more to them. Additionally, it was observed that either para-substituted XBAYs or meta-substituted XBAYs, the substituent effects of X are larger than those of Y on the E(Red) of substituted XBAYs.

  • Confinement Induced Ordering in Fluid of Hard Ellipsoids
    • Authors: Han Miao; Hong-ru Ma
      Abstract: The ordering configurations of a fluid of anisotropic ellipsoids under the confinement of two apposing impenetrable walls are studied by Monte Carlo simulations. The excess adsorption of the fluid on the walls with respect to the aspect ratio has a maximum at the critical aspect ratio of 2.9 in high-density ellipsoid fluids, indicating an orientational ordering in the adjacent region of the walls, which is confirmed by probing into the density configurations and the orientational order parameter in the adjacent region of the walls for varying aspect ratios. In addition, the orientational order parameter in the bulk fluid at the same density is calculated, and it indicates an isotropic state as the bulk density is still below the bulk isotropic-to-nematic transition. Therefore, it can be concluded that the anisotropic ordering near the walls in the ellipsoid fluid that exhibits isotropic in the bulk is induced by the confinement effect of the walls.

  • Laser Linewidth and Spectral Resolution in Infrared Scanning Sum Frequency
           Generation Vibrational Spectroscopy System
    • Authors: Feng Wei; Wen-xiu Xia, Zhong-jin Hu, Wen-hui Li, Ji-ying Zhang Wan-quan Zheng
      Abstract: Sum frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy (SFG-VS) is a robust technique for interfacial investigation at molecular level. The performance of SFG-VS mostly depends on the spectral resolution of the SFG system. In this research, a simplified function was deduced to calculate the spectral resolution of picosecond SFG system and the lineshape of SFG spectra based on the Guassian shaped functions of IR beam and visible beam. The function indicates that the lineshpe of SFG spectra from nonresonant samples can be calculated by the Guassian widths of both IR beam and visible beam. And the Voigt lineshape of SFG spectra from vibrational resonant samples can be calculated by the Homogeneous broadening (Lorentzian width) and Inhomogeneous broadening (Guassian width) of vibrational modes, as well as the Guassian widths of both IR beam and visible beam. Such functions were also applied to verify the spectral resolution of the polarization-resolved and frequency-resolved picosecond SFG-VS system which was developed by our group recently. It is shown that the linewidths of IR beams that generated from current laser system are about 1.5 cm−1. The calculated spectral resolution of current picosecond IR scanning SFG-VS system is about 4.6 cm−1, which is consist with he spctral resolution shown in the spectra of cholesterol monolayer (3.5–5 cm−1).

  • Incorporation of Reactive Corrosion Inhibitor in Waterborne Acrylic
           Polyurethane Coatings and Evaluation of its Corrosion Performance
    • Authors: Lin Gu; Ji-heng Ding, Shuan Liu Hai-bin Yu
      Abstract: Hydroxyl-epoxy phosphate (HEP) as a reactive corrosion inhibitor was innovatively synthesized by the reaction of bisphenol A epoxy resin with phosphoric acid.HEP was mixed with hydroxyl acrylate resin, and crosslinked with waterborne isocyanate curing agent, which was used to form waterborne HEP/acrylic polyurethane composite (HEP-APU) coatings on Q235 steel surfaces. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and polarization curves were applied to analyze the corrosion behavior of the HEP-APU coatings in 3.5wt% NaCl solutions. The results indicated that the HEP-APU coatings show a superior passivation property and efficient corrosion protection of Q235 steel. The waterborne acrylic polyurethane coating containing 0.5wt% HEP exhibited the best corrosion performance among all the coating specimens. The improved flash-rust resistance can be attributed to the introduction of the phosphate group which could form phosphate film on the steel substrate.

      Abstract: A series of heterogemini imidazolium surfactants with two-methylene spacer groups ([Cm-2-Cnim]Br2, m, n=8, 10, 12, 14, 16; m≠n) have been synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR and ESI-MS spectroscopy. The effects of various reaction parameters, including stoichiometry, reaction temperature and time, were investigated. In addition, the surface activity study about heterogemini imidazolium surfactants was carried out and the influences of dissymmetric degree on the surface properties were also discussed.

  • Dynamics of Tripartite Entanglement and Intramolecular Energy in Symmetric
           Trimer Molecule
    • Authors: Di Yi; Xing-lin Jian Xi-wen Hou
      Abstract: The dynamics of tripartite entanglement and intramolecular energy for one harmonic- and two anharmonic-vibrational modes in a symmetric trimer molecule is studied for various initial states, where the entanglement is quantified in terms of concurrence and the interacting energy among three modes is calculated to establish a link between entanglement and energy. It is shown that the concurrence and the interacting energy behave dominantly positive correlation for the localized state in the anharmonic-vibrational mode, while they are dominantly anti-correlated for the localized state in the harmonic-vibrational mode. The relation between bipartite entanglement and the energy in a subsystem is discussed as well. Those are useful for quantum computing and quantum information in high dimensional states prepared in polyatomic molecules.

  • Response Ability to External Signal Enhanced by Biological Spatial
           Configuration in Coupled Hindmarsh-Rose Neural System
    • Authors: Shou-fang Huang; Ji-qian Zhang Mao-sheng Wang
      Abstract: The effect of realistic topology configuration of intercellular connections on the response ability in coupled cell system is numerically investigated by using the Hindmarsh-Rose model. For the proper coupling intensity, we set the control parameter to be near the critical value, and the external stimulus is introduced to the first cell in coupled system. It is found that, on one hand, when the cells are coupled with some proper topological structures, the external stimulus could transmit through the system, and shows better response ability and higher sensitivity. On the other hand, the influence of topological configuration on the synchronous ability and selection effect of neural system are also discussed. Our results display that the topology of coupled system may play an important role in the process of signal propagation, which could help us to understand the coordinated performance of cells in tissue.

  • Ab initio Study on Formation Mechanism of Spiro-Si-Heterocyclic Ring
           Compound Involving Ge from H2Ge=Si: and Formaldehyde
    • Authors: Xiu-hui Lu; Dang-sheng Wang Jing-jing Ming
      Abstract: H2Ge=Si: and its derivatives (X2Ge=Si:, X=H, Me, F, Cl, Br, Ph, Ar, …) are new species. Its cycloaddition reactions are new area for the study of silylene chemistry. The cycloaddition reaction mechanism of singlet H2Ge=Si: and formaldehyde has been investigated with the MP2/aug-cc-pVDZ method. From the potential energy profile, it could be predicted that the reaction has one dominant reaction pathway. The reaction rule is that two reactants firstly form a four-membered Ge-heterocyclic ring silylene through the [2+2] cycloaddition reaction. Because of the 3p unoccupied orbital of Si: atom in the four-membered Ge-heterocyclic ring silylene and the π orbital of formaldehyde forming a π→p donor-acceptor bond, the four-membered Ge-heterocyclic ring silylene further combines with formaldehyde to form an intermediate. Because the Si: atom in the intermediate undergoes sp3 hybridization after transition state, then the intermediate isomerizes to a spiro-Si-heterocyclic ring compound involving Ge via a transition state. The result indicates the laws of cycloaddition reaction between H2Ge=Si: or its derivatives (X2Ge=Si:, X=H, Me, F, Cl, Br, Ph, Ar, …) and asymmetric π-bonded compounds are significant for the synthesis of small-ring involving Si and Ge and spiro-Si-heterocyclic ring compounds involving Ge.

  • Crystallization Behavior and Properties of B-Doped ZnO Thin Films Prepared
           by Sol-Gel Method with Different Pyrolysis Temperatures
    • Authors: Bin Wen; Chao-qian Liu, Nan Wang, Hua-lin Wang, Shi-min Liu, Wei-wei Jiang, Wan-yu Ding, Wei-dong Fei Wei-ping Chai
      Abstract: Boron-doped zinc oxide transparent (BZO) films were prepared by sol-gel method. The effect of pyrolysis temperature on the crystallization behavior and properties was systematically investigated. XRD patterns revealed that the BZO films had wurtzite structure with a preferential growth orientation along the c-axis. With the increase of pyrolysis temperature, the particle size and surface roughness of the BZO films increased, suggesting that pyrolysis temperature is the critical factor for determining the crystallization behavior of the BZO films. Moreover, the carrier concentration and the carrier mobility increased with increasing the pyrolysis temperature, and the mean transmittance for every film is over 90% in the visible range.

  • Fast Photodegradation of Malachite Green using Nano-ZnO on Ceramic MgAl
           Carbonate Layered Double Hydroxides Support
    • Authors: Rui-qiang Yan; Gui-hua Liu, Qing-feng Wang, Wei Liu Chun-lin Song
      Abstract: The nanopowders of Mg-Al carbonate layered double hydroxides (MgAl-LDH) were prepared via coprecipitation process. ZnOnanoparticles were homogeneously coated on the ceramic MgAl-LDH surface. After calcination at 500 °C for 4 h, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy were employed to investigate the crystal structure and morphology, respectively. It was demonstrated that ZnOnanoparticles were successfully prepared on ceramic MgAl-LDH support. The obtained nano-ZnO photocatalyst showed a high photocatalytic degradation of malachite green. The enhanced photocatalytic property can be attributed to both high photocatalytic activity of ZnO and good adsorption behavior of ceramic MgAl-LDH, in which the flaky structure of MgAl-LDH plays an important role.

  • Preparation, Characterization and Photocatalytic Activity of Fe, La
           Co-doped Nanometer Titanium Dioxide Photocatalysts
    • Authors: Zhong-liang Shi; Man Guo, Lin-jun Wang Shu-hua Yao
      Abstract: A series of photocatalysts of un-doped, single-doped and co-doped nanometer titanium dioxide (TiO2) have been successfully prepared by template method using Fe(NO3)3·9H2O, La(NO3)3·6H2O, and tetrabutyl titanate as precursors and glucan as template. Scanning electron microscopy,X-ray diffraction, and N2 adsorption-desorption measurement were employed to characterize the morphology, crystal structure and surface structure of the samples. The photo-absorbance of the obtained catalysts was measured by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, and the photocatalytic activities of the prepared samples under UV and visible light were estimated by measuring the degradation rate of methyl orange in an aqueous solution. The characterizations indicated that the prepared photocatalysts consisted of anatase phase and possessed high surface area of ca. 163–176 m2/g. It was shown that the Fe and La co-doped nano-TiO2 could be activated by visible light and could thus be used as an effective catalyst in photo-oxidation reactions. The synergistic effect of Fe and La co-doping played an important role in improving the photocatalytic activity. In addition, the possibility of cyclic usage of co-doped nano-TiO2 was also confirmed, the photocatalytic activity of codoped nano-TiO2 remained above 89.6% of the fresh sample after being used four times.

  • Electronic and Optical Properties of O-Terminated Armchair Graphene
    • Authors: Dao-bang Lu; Chang-geng Luo, Yu-ling Song, Qun-na Pan Chun-ying Pu
      Abstract: The structure,electromagnetic and optical properties of the O-terminated graphenenanoribbons with armchair edge are studied using first-principles theory. The results show that the O-terminated armchair edge are more stable than the H-terminated ribbons and show metallic character. Spin-polarized calculations reveal that the antiferromagnetic state are more stable than the ferromagnetic state. The energy band and density of states analyses show that the O-terminated armchair edge are antiferromagneticsemiconductors. Because of the terminated O atoms, the dielectric function has an evident red shift and the first peak is the strongest with its main contribution derived from the highest valence band. The peaks of the dielectric function, reflection, absorption, energy loss are related to the transition of electrons. Our results suggest that the O-terminated graphenenanoribbons have potential applications in nanoelectronics, opto-electric devices.

  • First Principles Investigation of Electronic Property and High Pressure
           Phase Stability of SmN
    • Authors: Ai-min Hao; Jing Bai, Shao-hua Luo Xi-wei Qi
      Abstract: An investigation of electronic property and high pressurephase stability of SmN has been conducted using first principles calculations based on density functional theory. The electronic properties of SmN show a striking feature of a half metal, the majority-spin electrons are metallic and the minority-spin electrons are semiconducting. It was found that SmN undergoes a pressure-induced phase transition from NaCl-type (B1) to CsCl-type structure (B2) at 117 GPa. The elastic constants of SmN satisfy Born conditions at ambient pressure, indicating that B1 phase of SmN is mechanically stable at 0 GPa. The result of phonon spectra shows that B1 structure is dynamically stable at ambient pressure, which agrees with the conclusion derived from the elastic constants.

  • Electronic Transport Through N24B24 Molecular Junction
    • Authors: Mojtaba Yaghobi; Mohammad Ali Ramzanpour Mohammad Reza Nyazian
      Abstract: We have investigated the electron transport properties of a N24B24 molecule coupled to two metallic contacts with a combination of GW approximation and the non-equilibrium Green's-function technique. The calculations indicate that the four and three resonant tunneling peaks are seen for the density of states (DOS) curves in the cases of single and multiple atomic contacts, respectively. The off state and negative differential resistance(NDR) effect are observed in the I-V characteristics of the N24B24 molecule. The NDR behavior is also observed in voltages of about ∓4.5, ∓4, ∓4.6, and ∓4.3 V for one, four, six, and eight atomic contacts. Also, the I-V characteristics of N24B24 are in off state at low voltages that is independent of the contact types. The current curves against the gate voltage depend on contact types and indicate that N24B24 molecule behaves as a semiconductor.

  • Ion Product of Pure Water Characterized by Physics-Based Water Model
    • Authors: Bin-bin Jie; Chihtang Sah
      Abstract: Pure water has been characterized for nearly a century, by its dissociation into hydronium (H3O)1+ and hydroxide (HO)1− ions. As a chemical equilibrium reaction, the equilibrium constant, known as the ion product or the product of the equilibrium concentration of the two ion species, has been extensively measured by chemists over the liquid water temperature and pressure range. The experimental data have been nonlinear least-squares fitted to chemical thermodynamic-based equilibrium equations, which have been accepted as the industrial standard for 35 years. In this study, a new and statistical-physics-based water ion product equation is presented, in which, the ions are the positively charged protons and the negatively charged proton-holes or prohols. Nonlinear least squares fits of our equation to the experimental data in the 0–100 °C pure liquid water range, give a factor of two better precision than the 35-year industrial standard.

  • Structural and Magnetic Properties of Chemically Synthesized Pd-Modified
           NiFe2O4 Nanoparticles
    • Authors: Shahid Atiq; Shahid M. Ramay, Asif Mahmood, Saira Riaz Shahzad Naseem
      Abstract: Magnetic nanoparticles of NiFe2O4-Pd composites have been synthesized using a simple, low cost, sol-gel auto-combustion method. As-prepared samples were sintered at 800 °C for 6 h in order to develop the crystalline phase. X-ray diffraction confirmed the spinel structure of the ferrite samples. Structural morphology and size of the nanoparticles were evaluated using a field emission scanning electron microscope. Magnetic hysteresis loops were obtained at 300 and 100 K using a physical properties measurement system. The value of saturation magnetization was observed to decrease at the temperatures with the increase of Pd contents up to 5% but then a sudden rise in saturation magnetization was observed for the addition of 10% Pd in NiFe2O4.

  • Laser Ablation Atomic Beam Apparatus with Time-Sliced Velocity Map Imaging
           for Studying State-to-State Metal Reaction Dynamics†
    • Authors: Chang-wu Dong; Jia-xing Liu, Fang-fang Li Feng-yan Wang
      Abstract: We report a newly constructed laser ablation crossed molecular beam apparatus, equipped with time-sliced velocity map imaging technique, to study state-to-state metal atom reaction dynamics. Supersonic metal atomic beam is generated by laser vaporization of metal rod, and free expansion design without gas flow channel has been employed to obtain a good quality of metal atomic beam. We have chosen the crossed-beam reaction Al+O2 to test the performance of the new apparatus. Two-rotational-states selected AlO(X 2∑+, v=0, N and N+14) products can be imaged via P(N) and R(N+14) branches of the Δv=1 band at the same wavelength, during (1+1) resonance-enhanced multi-photon ionization through the AlO(D 2∑+) intermediate state. In our experiment at 244.145 nm for simultaneous transitions of P(15) and R(29) branch, two rings in slice image were clearly distinguishable, corresponding to the AlO(v=0, N=15) and AlO(v=0, N=29) states respectively. The energy difference between the two rotational levels is 403 cm−1. The success of two states resolved in our apparatus suggests a better collisional energy resolution compared with the recent research study [J. Chem. Phys. 140, 214304 (2014)].

  • Efficient Separation of Ar and Kr from Environmental Samples for Trace
           Radioactive Noble Gas Detection†
    • Authors: Le-yi Tu; Guo-min Yang, Xiang-yang Zhang Shui-ming Hu
      Abstract: Radioactive noble-gas isotopes, 85Kr (half-life t 1/2=10.8 y), 39Ar (t 1/2=269 y), and 81Kr (t 1/2=229,000 y), are ideal tracers and can be detected by atom trap trace analysis (ATTA), a laser-based technique, from environmental samples like air and groundwater. Prior to ATTA measurements, it is necessary to efficiently extract krypton and argon gases from samples. Using a combination of cryogenic distillation, titanium chemical reaction and gas chromatography, we demonstrate that we can recover both krypton and argon gases from 1–10 L “air-like” samples with yields in excess of 90% and 98%, respectively, which meet well the requirements for ATTA measurements. A group of testing samples are analyzed to verify the performance of the system, including two groundwater samples obtained from north China plain.

  • High-Resolution Threshold Photoelectron Spectroscopy by Vacuum Ultraviolet
           Laser Velocity-Map-Imaging Method†
    • Authors: Zhou Lu; Hong Gao, Yun-tao Xu, Lei Yang, Chow-Shing Lam, Yanice Benitez C. Y. Ng
      Abstract: We have obtained the high-resolution threshold photoelectron (TPE) spectra of chlorobenzene C6H5Cl (X 1A1), propargyl radical C3H3 (X 2B1), and allyl radical C3H5 (X 2A1) by employing the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser velocity-map-imaging-TPE (VUV-VMI-TPE) method. The photoelectron energy resolution of 1–2 cm−1 observed for the VUV-VMI-TPE method is comparable to that achieved in VUV laser pulsed-field ionization-photoelectron (VUV-PFI-PE) measurements. Similar to VUV-PFI-PE measurements, the energy resolutions for VUV-VMI-photoelectron (VUV-VMI-PE) and VUV-VMI-TPE measurements are found to depend on the dc electric field F in V/cm used at the photoionization region for electron extraction. The decrease of the ionization thresholds of C6H5Cl and C3H3 observed as a function of F shows that the Stark shift correction for VUV-VMI-TPE measurements is governed by the formula − 3.1 F in cm−1, which is half of the classical prediction of − 6.1 F in cm−1. We have also measured the VUV-VMI-PE spectra of C6H5Cl and C3H5 at VUV energies near their ionization thresholds. The cationic vibrational bands observed in the VUV-VMI-PE measurements were assigned to be the vibrational progression, nv 7 + (n=0–3), for C3H+ 5. The higher experimental sensitivity and similar energy resolutions achieved in VUV-VMI-TPE compared to VUV-PFI-PE measurements make the VUV-VMI-TPE method an excellent alternative for high-resolution VUV-PFI-PE measurements.
