Theoretical description of nuclear collective excitations
Repko, Anton ; Kvasil, Jan (advisor) ; Knapp, František (referee) ; Mareš, Jiří (referee)
Density functional theory is a preferred microscopic method for calculation of nuclear properties over the whole nuclear chart. Besides ground-state properties, which are calculated by Hartree-Fock theory, nuclear excitations can be described by means of Random Phase Approximation (RPA). The main objective of the present work is to give the RPA formalism for spherically symmetric nuclei, using the techniques of angular-momentum coupling. Various auxiliary topics, such as Hartree-Fock theory, Coulomb integral, center-of-mass corrections and pairing, are treated as well. RPA method is derived also for axially deformed nuclei. The derived formulae are then implemented in the computer code and utilized for calculation of some physical results. After thorough investigation of the precision aspects of the calculation, the following topics are treated as examples: toroidal nature of the low-energy (pygmy) part of the E1 resonance, giant resonances of various multipolarities in deformed nucleus 154Sm, and magnetic dipole (M1) transitions in deformed 50Cr.

Preparation of magnetic nanoparticles by hydrothermal method

Hydrothermal method of nanoparticle preparation, involving oleic acid, has received certain attention in the last years. However, the published works lack systematic approach to the subject, and the mechanism was not thoroughly investigated, so as to achieve a predictable outcome of the synthesis. The present work investigated the influence of composition of organic and water phase on the synthesis of cobalt ferrite (cobalt(II)-iron(III) oxide) and magnetite nanoparticles, and the mechanism of nanoparticle formation was proposed. Organic phase was based on pentanol, octanol or toluene, containing the precursor - metal oleate. Besides hydrophobic particles, it was even possible to directly prepare hydrophilic oleate-coated particles by using water phase with sodium oleate. Synthetic procedure was then simplified by a separate preparation of cobalt-iron oleate, which led also to a product of narrower size distribution and better phase purity. Size control in the range of 6-11 nm and a batch yield of ca. 500 mg was achieved. Attention was given also to the surface modification of the particles, thus imparting them hydrophilicity. Small di- or tricarboxylic acids were utilized, as well as carboxylmethyl dextran and titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide required additional protection with...

Title: Preparation of magnetic and optical nanoparticles Author: Anton Repko Department: Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Charles University of Prague Supervisor: RNDr. Daniel Nižňanský, Ph.D. Supervisor's e-mail address: niznansk@natur.cuni.cz Abstract: In the present work we study methods of preparation of magnetic and optical nanoparticles by hydrothermal method. Specifically, we prepared particles of cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) and sodium yttrium fluoride (NaYF4) doped by Yb3+ a Er3+ from corresponding nitrates in the system of water - ethanol - oleic acid, and in modified systems. By this method, it is possible to prepare particles of narrow size distribution (monodisperse particles). Pre- pared particles of ferrite show superparamagnetism and particles of NaYF4 up-conversion, i.e. conversion of infrared (980 nm) to visible light. Keywords: nanocrystals, superparamagnetism, up-conversion, CoFe2O4, NaYF4, hydrothermal synthesis
Gigantické rezonance v atomových jádrech
Repko, Anton ; Kvasil, Jan (advisor) ; Knapp, František (referee)
Skyrme functional is commonly used for the description of ground-state and dynamical properties of atomic nuclei. To describe the dynamical properties in the microscopic self-consistent way, we employed Separable Random Phase Approximation (SRPA) based on Skyrme functional. This work describes theory of Skyrme Hartree-Fock and SRPA and presents numerical calculation of E1 and M1 giant resonances in spherical nuclei Ca-40 - Fe-56. There is some evidence for non-zero ground-state deformation of the nucleus Fe-56, so it is treated also with such assumption. The results obtained for various parametrizations are compared to the experimental data.
