We present a comprehensive survey of electronic and lattice-dynamical properties of crystalline antimony telluride (Sb2Te3). In a first step, the electronic structure and chemical bonding have been investigated, followed by calculations of the atomic force constants, phonon dispersion relationships and densities of states. Then, (macroscopic) physical(More)
A scientifically operated charge-coupled device detector combined with fluorescence quenching high-performance thin-layer chromatographic plates was employed for the detection of organic compounds, The plates were excited with 254 nm light from a mercury lamp, and quantitative information was obtained from organic compounds that absorbed the optimum(More)
The lattice dynamics of polycrystalline Mg(2)Ge and Mg(2)Si are compared using both microscopic and macroscopic measurements as well as theoretical calculations. The volume thermal expansion coefficient between 200 and 300 K was found to be 4.37(5) · 10(-5) K(-1) in Mg(2)Ge, compared to 3.69(5) · 10(-5) K(-1) in Mg(2)Si. Inelastic neutron scattering(More)
A high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) method using a scientifically operated charge-coupled device detector is described for the assay of tetracycline pharmaceutical products. Quantitative information can be obtained for all samples on a TLC plate within a few seconds. The separation efficiency and detection limits were determined on both(More)
