The resulting core-hole states relax via various channels, including fluorescence and Auger decay [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2018-08-0718:46 [PUBDB-2018-02847] Dissertation / PhD Thesis Santra, R.

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.

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.
