In this work, the temperature-jump (T-jump) of water induced by THz radiation is simulated for ten different THz frequencies in the range from 3 to 30 THz and five different pulse intensities in the range from 1 × 10$^{11}$ to 5 × 10$^{12}$ W/cm$^{2}$ employing both ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) and force field molecular dynamics (FFMD) approaches.

With guidance from a dedicated molecular dynamics simulation tool, we find that van der Waals bonding, the oligomer formation mechanism, and charge transfer among the cluster constituents significantly affect ionization dynamics induced by an XFEL pulse of moderate fluence [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-05-3114:00 [PUBDB-2018-02163] Journal Article Welsch, R.

The simulation of these interactions requires a parametrization of the permanent and induced dipole moments.

Collective resonances of atomic xenon from the linear to the nonlinear regime Journal of physics communications 2(4), 045024 - (2018) [10.1088/2399-6528/aab946]   XUV nonlinear spectroscopy has recently discovered that there is more than one collective dipole resonance state in the energy range of the giant dipole resonance (GDR) of atomic Xe. This resonance-state substructure, hidden in the linear regime, raises imminent questions regarding our understanding of the collective electronic behavior of Xe, which has been largely founded on linear spectroscopic studies [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-03-2710:12 [PUBDB-2018-01577] Journal Article et al Control of Nuclear Dynamics through Conical Intersections and Electronic Coherences Physical review letters 120(12), 123001 (2018) [10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.123001]   The effect of nuclear dynamics and conical intersections on electronic coherences is investigated employing a two-state, two-mode linear vibronic coupling model.

Multistep transition of diamond to warm dense matter state revealed by femtosecond X-ray diffraction Scientific reports 8, 5284 (2018) [10.1038/s41598-018-23632-8]   Diamond bulk irradiated with a free-electron laser pulse of 6100 eV photon energy, 5 fs duration, at the ~19–25 eV/atom absorbed doses, is studied theoretically on its way to warm dense matter state. Simulations with our hybrid code XTANT show disordering on sub-100 fs timescale, with the diffraction peak (220) vanishing faster than the peak (111).

Often this finding is interpreted in terms of an equilibration of internal energy into vibrational degrees of freedom after Auger decay. [...] Published on 2018-02-14.
