The design of mirrors composed of multilayer stacks of dielectric films is considered. High reflectance over an extended spectral range is attained by positioning the stacks so that on a wavelength scale their high-reflectance bands are either contiguous or overlapping. Certain precautions must be taken in the choice of stacks to avoid deep-reflectance(More)
A family of M-VP (M = Ni, Co, Cd, Mn, Zn, Fe, Cu, Pb; VP = vinylphosphonate) and M-PVP (M = Co, Cd; PVP = phenylvinylphosphonate) materials have been synthesized by hydrothermal methods and characterized by FT-IR, elemental analysis, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Their structures were determined either by single crystal X-ray crystallography or from(More)
The ligand dependence of metal-metal bonding in the d(3)d(3) face-shared M(2)X(9)(n-) (M(III) = Cr, Mo, W; M(IV) = Mn, Tc, Re; X = F, Cl, Br, I) dimers has been investigated using density functional theory. In general, significant differences in metal-metal bonding are observed between the fluoride and chloride complexes involving the same metal ion,(More)
