We propose a fluctuation model of the photochemical initiation of an explosive chain reaction in energetic materials. In accordance with the developed model, density fluctuations of photo-excited molecules serve as reaction nucleation sites due to the stochastic character of interactions between photons and energetic molecules. A further development of the(More)
Optical absorption measurements are combined with electronic structure calculations to explore photochemistry of an α-Al₂O₃-PETN interface formed by a nitroester (pentaerythritol tetranitrate, PETN, C₅H₈N₄O12) and a wide band gap aluminum oxide (α-Al₂O₃) substrate. The first principles modeling is used to deconstruct and interpret the α-Al₂O₃-PETN(More)
The article analyzes event-related potentials in the Go/NoGo test of patients with schizophrenia and schizotypal personality disorder in relation to healthy subjects. Differences identified in the group of patients with schizophrenia are consistent with previous studies and indicate disruption in processes associated with different stages of visual(More)
