Investigation of intense femto-second laser ionization and dissociation of methane with time-dependent density-functional approach, Article Chemical Physics Letters ; Vol. 604 , 2014 , Pages 60-67 ; ISSN: 00092614 ; Sadighi Bonabi, R ; Anvari, A ; Sharif University of Technology
Three dimensional calculations of electronic dynamics of CH4 in a strong laser field are presented with time-dependent density-functional theory. Time evolution of dipole moment and electron localization function is presented. The dependence of dissociation rate on the laser characters is shown and optimal effective parameters are evaluated. The optimum field leads to 76% dissociation probability for Gaussian envelope and 40 fs (FWHM) at 10 16 W cm-2. The dissociation probability is calculated by optimum convolution of dual short pulses. By combining of field assisted dissociation process and Ehrenfest molecular dynamics, time variation of bond length, velocity and orientation effect are...

Adsorption and dissociation of NO on RhxCu4-x(x = 0–4) nano clusters were investigated using density functional theory. Adsorption energy, total charge on NO, NO bond length, and NO vibrational frequency for various modes of NO adsorption were analyzed. Adsorption from the nitrogen end of NO on the Rh atom(s) of the clusters are more favored and adsorption energies are in the −1.02 eV to −2.59 eV range. NO binds stronger to Rh-Cu mixed clusters compared to pure Cu4 cluster, so N[sbnd]O bond is significantly weakened upon adsorption on the former. NO binding to more atoms of the clusters results in a corresponding decrease of the N[sbnd]O vibrational frequency. Dissociation of NO was also...

(GraphPresented) The quantum optimal control theory in conjunction with time dependent density functional theory is used to optimize the laser pulse shape for dissociation of nitrogen molecule. For several initial peak intensities and frequency ranges, the optimum shapes are produced and compared to determine the most efficient pulse. Ehrenfest molecular dynamics model is also used to test the dissociation process. The corresponding snapshots of density and time dependent electron localization function are presented. It is noticed that when the frequency ranges of laser pulses are doubled, it leads to 60% faster dissociation of N2 molecule
