  • About possibility of existence of black holes within the limits of the dynamical and stationary univers

    Idea of existence of black holes is the cornerstone of the set of the theories describing evolution of galaxies and stars. In spite of the fact that their existence at most of scientists does not raise doubts, formally these objects are considered as hypothetical. Many astrophysicists consider that our Universe arose from singularity which began to extend from the moment of the Big Bang, however, if black holes do not exist, then it, obviously, it is necessary to rethink the ideas. In this article the view, other than the hypothesis of the Big Bang, of the structure of the Universe and of the possibility of existence of black holes will be considered.

  • Photoelectron Scattering Phases And Amplitudes For The Determination Of Atomic Structure By EXAFS Spectroscopy

    The X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is a powerful tool for local atomic structure investigation of materials with different origin including nanocomposites. The extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (EXAFS) is very sensitive to the details of local environment of X-ray photon absorbing atom. In order to perform quantitative study of EXAFS data the preliminary calculations of scattering phases and amplitudes of photo-electron in the crystal are required. The quality of this calculation highly affects on precision of such results, such as inter-atomic distances and coordination numbers. An existing methods use iterative self-consisted approach for the estimation of interatomic potential which could be neglected using fixed potential value in interatomic region (“muffin-tin”-zero). The Hedin-Lundqvist exchange potential is commonly used. The paper presents the results of the development and testing of computer code HFampl for the first-principle calculation of scattering phases and amplitudes within “muffin-tin” approximation using exact Hartree-Fock (HF) exchange potential. The development using GNU compilers collection has allowed an execution of the codes in any compatible operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac). The atomic configurations were prepared for the most elements of the periodic table. The program tests performed on metals, oxides and iron-containing aqueous solutions demonstrated good applicability of the phases and amplitudes for the precise structural analysis, which allows accuracy up to 1% in interatomic distance calculation. Such accuracy in distances determination is as good as accuracy of common program packages. But values of other parameters (such as reduction factor and Debye-Waller parameter) are more realistic in case of application scattering phases and amplitudes obtained with HFampl code.

  • The analysis of the ice on the wires of power lines detection methods and their application for contact network

    Contact network work in winter conditions is much more difficult than usual. The most hard contact network mode of operation is the mode of ice with wind, which increase wind and ice load on wires and cables, reference and supporting structures. Ice loading on the wires and wind effects significantly impair the conditions of current pick-off and coupled with operational factors can cause an accident and lead to a trains stop. From this perspective the detection of glaze-ice and rime deposition in the early stages with its minimal thickness becomes of vital importance.
