We report vibrationally resolved spectra of the S1 S0 transition of bromobenzene using resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) spectroscopy. We study bromobenzene h5 as well as its perdeuterated isotopologue, bromobenzene d5. The form of the vibrational modes between the isotopologues and also between the S0 and S1 electronic states are discussed for each species, allowing […]

In this method the aircraft dynamics model is used to generate a number of feasible flight trajectories that also satisfy the GNSS integrity constraints. The feasible trajectories are calculated by initialising the aircraft dynamics model with a manoeuvre identification algorithm. The performance of the proposed GNSS integrity augmentation and trajectory optimisation algorithms was evaluated in […]

Some of the new approaches have started to revolutionize scientific drilling in ancient lakes, but at the same time, they also add a new layer of complexity to the generation and analysis of sediment core data. The enhanced opportunities presented by new scientific approaches to study the paleolimnological history of these lakes, therefore, come at […]
