  • Local atomic structure of gold nanoparticles in silica glasses by using to EXAFS and DFT modeling

    Plasmonic nanoparticles make it possible to localize the electromagnetic field at scales smaller than the optical wavelength. This property is useful for the application of same objects for the creation of nanodetectors, in the processes of energy conversion and storage, in the tasks of data processing and transmission. In particular, the creation of computer chips with plasmonic elements instead of traditional semiconductors will increase their performance and energy efficiency. Our main purpose is obtaining implanted in the matrix of glass the arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles with controlled optical properties. Their properties can be varied by changing the conditions of their synthesis and post-processing. Nanoparticles are created by UV-laser influence on the gold film, precipitated on the glass surface. One of the proposed methods is long-term heating at 300 ̊C of already synthesized samples. This research presents the results of the study of the effect of temperature treatment on the atomic structure of Au nanoparticles. The study of the nanoparticles atomic structure was performed by using EXAFS-spectroscopy at the Au L3-edge. EXAFS-functions were fitted by using Stepwise EXAFS fitting-code, obtained models of the NPs atomic structure were confirmed by using DFT-optimization. The fact, that the atomic structure of NPs before and afted thermal treatment is strongly dependent of the thickness of initial gold layer (6, 10 and 70nm), is established. These differencies can be explainde by different interaction between gold film & NPs and glass matryx.

  • Hydroacoustic system with complex signals for communication and positioning of underwater vehicles

    The method of local positioning of underwater vehicles by hydroacoustic system with linearly-frequency-modulated probing signals is considered. The method is based on measuring the range to the object and calculating the angles of arrival of echo signals on two or more spaced antennas. To increase energy and noise immunity signals with linear frequency modulation (LFM) are used. The scheme of towing an underwater vehicle with an acoustic beacon and the location of a hydroacoustic interferometer with two receiving antennas on a towing vessel are presented. The possibility of practical use of this method for high-precision measurement of the spatial position of an underwater towed or Autonomous vehicle relative to a surface vessel and, accordingly, the possibility of geographical reference of acoustic images and sea-bottom profilograms obtained by an underwater vehicle is experimentally shown. The results of full-scale tests of the experimental positioning system for its testing in the coastal zone of a small pond are presented. The block diagram of the local positioning equipment is presented. Examples of experimental distributions of the power module of echoes over the range are given for correlation processing of the acoustic beacon LFM signals.

  • Cathodic processes in intergranular corrosion of nickel-chrome stainless steel

    The nature of cathodic reactions occurring during intergranular corrosion (ICC) on stainless steel 08X18H10T in a solution of 0.5 M H2SO4 + 0.01 M KCNS is considered. Evaluation of the thermodynamic potential of various reactions with components of the solution showed that the ICC process in this system proceeds with mixed oxygen-hydrogen depolarization. When the temperature rises, an intensification of the cathode process occurs, which is associated with a decrease in the overvoltage of the reduction of oxidants. Forced medium movement at low temperatures also facilitates the cathodic process, and at elevated temperatures the effect of convective medium movement decreases. This is due to the decrease in the proportion of oxygen involved in the cathode process, since its concentration in solution increases with increasing temperature.

  • Features of technical risk assessment under non-deterministic stochastic parameters

    The quantitative methods of risk assessment of technological processes of manufacture and the analysis of level of deficiency of products in the conditions of nondeterministic stochastic parameters are considered. The properties defining reliability of process are its controllability, stability and reproducibility. The main methodical device by assessment and the analysis of these properties are provisions of standards on statistical methods of quality control. In the analysis and assessment of risk it is necessary to consider that borders of a tolerance zone of parameters of products and control limits of reliability of technological processes of its production are always considered as acceptable (admissible) risk levels. Overcoming these levels is considered a negative consequence in the form of increase in level of deficiency of products and decrease in accuracy of technological processes of its production. Technical solutions are always bound to risk as it is never impossible to be sure of the end estimated result in advance. To check whether this risk was justified, it is possible always only after realization of technical solution and approach of an undesirable event. Therefore technical activity in principle can't be completely free from any risk, and it is always necessary to go on necessary and justified risk consciously.
