In the present work, we studied the photoinduced ion chemistry of the halogenated pyrimidines, a class of prototype radiosensitizing molecules, in the energy region 9-15 eV. The work was stimulated by previous studies on inner shell site-selective fragmentation of the pyrimidine molecule, which have shown that the fragmentation is governed by the(More)
Circular dichroism in the angular distribution of valence photoelectrons emitted from randomly oriented 3-hydroxytetrahydrofuran enantiomers (ThS and ThR) has been observed in gas-phase experiments using circularly polarized vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) light. The measured dichroism for both ThS and ThR, acquired at the single magic angle theta=234.73 degrees(More)
Asymmetric molecular and supramolecular systems are characterized by: i. the circular dicroism in the angular distribution of valence photoelectrons emitted from randomly oriented chiral molecules by their interaction with circularly polarized VUV light; ii. the different stability and reactivity of diastereomeric aggregates. Both these aspects may have(More)
The formation of 2D chiral monolayers obtained by self-assembly of chiral molecules on surfaces has been widely reported in the literature. Control of chirality transfer from a single molecule to surface superstructures is a challenging and important aspect for tailoring the properties of 2D nanostructures. However, despite the wealth of investigations(More)
A sizable enhancement of the circular dichroism in photoelectron spectroscopy has been measured and computed for the metal complex Δ-cobalt(III) tris-acetylacetonate highest occupied molecular orbital state in the region of the Co 3p→3d Fano resonance. In the resonance the dichroism reaches the maximum value of 5% and even changes its sign as compared to(More)
A photoelectron circular dichroism (CD) study of the valence states of 2-amino-1-propanol (alaninol) in the gas phase is presented. The aim of the investigation is to reveal conformer population effects in the valence-state photoelectron spectrum. The experimental dispersion of the dichroic D parameter of valence states as a function of the photon(More)
The dynamical behavior of circular dichroism for valence photoionization processes in pure enantiomers of randomly oriented methyl-oxirane molecules has been studied by circularly polarized synchrotron radiation. Experimental results of the dichroism coefficient obtained for valence photoionization processes as a function of photon energy have been compared(More)
Low-energy (5-15 eV) electron- and photon-stimulated desorption of KI(100) yields I2P3/2 and 2P1/2 with hyperthermal (0.3 eV) and thermal velocity components. The desorption threshold for both components is 5.3 eV and is correlated with the gamma3/2-exciton long-wavelength edge. Exciton decay at the surface directly produces I2P3/2 and 2P1/2 with(More)
Leveraging the concept of controlled node mobility in this paper we develop an algorithm for tracking and controlling proximity malware propagation in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Our proposal aims at: (i) notifying the nodes of malwarepropagation, (ii) leading a flying robot along a path in the WSNthat guarantees the minimum recovery time to (iii) heal(More)
