Keywords: line–broadening, symmetric top, methylcyanide, line–contour, intermolecular interactions
Abstract >>
Calculated self and nitrogenbroadening coefficients of methylcyanide lines are presented. The calculations are performed at the room temperature (Ò = 296 K) for ~ 1 400 lines, rotational quantum numbers vary in ranges 0 ≤ J ≤ 70; 0 ≤ K ≤ 10. The temperature exponents for every value of broadening in the case of the Earth and Titan atmospheres temperature ranges are calculated. The calculations are made by a semiempirical method, which is a modification of impact theory, based on the use of measured values of line contour parameters. A good agreement is obtained with experimental data.

Keywords: continuum absorption, carbon dioxide, selfbroadening, spectral line wings
Abstract >>
The CO_{2} absorption was measured in the 7 000 and 8 000 cm^{–1} region. Calculations of the absorption coefficient were performed using the asymptotic line wing shape theory. Line contour parameters were associated with the classical potential governing the center–of–mass motion and with the quantum potential of two interacting molecules. They were found from fitting the calculated absorption coefficient to experiment. The calculated coefficient values agree well with the measured data. According to the line wing theory the absorption in the band wings is due to the wings of the strong lines of adjacent band. With these assumptions experimental and calculated data on the CO_{2} absorption coefficient in the band wings in the 7 000 and 8 000 cm^{–1} regions can provide information on the line shape at frequency detunings from several tens to several hundreds of halfwidths. The results obtained support the hypothesis that line shape parameters in the line wings related to the transitions with the same initial state appear to be close to each other. Deviations from the Lorentzian contour are defined for a set of CO_{2} bands. The former are found to be different for the wings of different bands.

Keywords: Bessel beam, vortex beam, optical radiation, atmospheric turbulence, coherence, ring dislocation
Abstract >>
The behavior of the degree of coherence of a coherent vortex Bessel optical beam propagating in a turbulent randomly inhomogeneous medium is theoretically considered. The influence of an optical vortex on the degree of coherence of the Bessel beam in a randomly inhomogeneous medium is studied. The analysis is based on the solution of the equation for the secondorder mutual coherence function of optical beam field. On the basis of this solution, the behavior of the module of the secondorder mutual coherence function (a degree of coherence), the vortex Bessel beam field is investigated. It is shown that at low levels of fluctuations in the turbulent atmosphere, in the central part of a twodimensional field of the degree of coherence of vortex Bessel beams, the ring dislocation is formed; the number of rings is equal to value of a topological charge of an optical beam. The structure of a ring dislocation of the degree of coherence of vortex Bessel optical beams in turbulent atmosphere is studied in detail. For this purpose, two characteristics of the ring dislocation are introduced: the spatial coordinate and width of a ring. The influence of parameters of an optical beam (a crosssection wave number and a topological charge) and atmospheric turbulence (a coherence radius of a plane optical wave) on these characteristics of the ring dislocation of the degree of coherence of a vortex Bessel optical beam is considered.

Abstract >>
The paper analyzes the structure parameter of the refractive index of optical waves C_{n}^{2} in the surface air layer calculated from the structure parameter of the air temperature C_{T}^{2}. The C_{n}^{2} estimates obtained from data of an optical differential turbulence meter and ultrasonic anemometerthermometers are compared. The systematic difference between these estimates at the high degree of correlation is noted. The diurnal mean profile of C_{n}^{2} in different seasons at territories with natural landscape and urban territory is obtained and analyzed.

Abstract >>
The results of numerical modeling of the light wave scattering near field (“photonic (nano)jet” — PNJ area) by radially symmetric nonabsorbing dielectric micronsized particles are presented. It is shown that the homogeneous silica microparticles of different spatial shape and orientation form PNJ with different dimensions and amplitude parameters. Photonic nanojet from hemispheres possesses high extent but moderate intensity. Using of microaxicons provides for a record increase in the PNJ length of the order of twenty laser wavelength.

Keywords: pulse–periodic discharge initiated of runaway electrons, blue and green mini jets in air, nitrogen and argon of average pressure
Abstract >>
Performed spectroscopic and amplitudetemporal studies of jets in discharges initiated by runaway electrons have been studied. Pulse–periodic discharge was used. It is show that the color of the part of jets observed during laboratory discharges is determined by the radiation on transitions of vapour metal electrodes. It is found that blue mini jets from an electrode with a small radius of curvature appear in the cases of stainless steel and aluminum electrodes and are caused by radiation of atomic transitions of these metals. Green mini jets observed near copper electrodes are mainly caused by radiation of coper atomic transitions at wavelengths of 521.8 and 522 nm. It is confirmed that the jets of different colors appeare due to the bright spots on electrodes, as well as sparks in the discharge.

Keywords: terawatt femtosecond laser, measurement of the energy characteristics, photoacoustic receiver
Abstract >>
To measure the energy of femtosecond laser pulses (248, 744, and 800 · 10^{–9} m), a photoacoustic receiver with a black body (as an absorbent element) and a condenser microphone (as a converter) placed in the enclosed volume with gas were tested. The device allows measurements of the energy of UV and IR laser pulses over a wide dynamic range (more than 80 dB with MK 221 microphone). The pulse repetition rate is up to 15 Hz, pulse duration, from 20 · 10^{–15} to 100 · 10^{–9} s, the threshold sensitivity, 10^{–9} J. High sensitivity of the receiver provides reliable measurements of energy of terawatt femtosecond laser pulses in the main absorption channel of radiation passing through the rotating mirror with a reflection coefficient close to 100%.

Abstract >>
It is represented the scheme of work and numerical modeling of a photoacoustic gas analyzer with IR–source and 1–st order interference filter for carbon isotope ratios analysis. An optimal spectral range for gaz analyzer operation is selected. In the selected wavelength range, the spectral characteristics of the atmosphere and some additional gazes are analyzed, which could affect the measurement results. The proposed gas analyzer allows us to measure carbon isotope ratios ^{13}Ñ/^{12}Ñ in CO_{2} samples with a minimal error of about 0.5‰, and could be useful for detection of such gases as SO_{2}, CO, NH_{3}, absorption lines of which exist in the selected spectral range.
