Highly oxygenated organic molecules are a key component of atmospheric secondary organic aerosol. However, the origin and formation mechanism of highly oxygenated organic molecules with high unsaturation (HU-HOMs), remain unknown. But now an international team of researchers has found that photooxidation of large polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) on soot by singlet oxygen and superoxide anion radicals can be an important source of the unexplained HU-HOMs widely observed in the atmosphere. The team was led by Yafang Cheng from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and Chuncheng Chen from the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Their results are based on molecular-level investigations of the photochemical aging of soot by O2. The PAH-derived HU-HOMs exhibit lactone and anhydride functional groups and can substantially increase the hydrophilicity of soot.

17:03 Phys.org Photonic spin Hall effect: Fundamentals and emergent applications

When a beam is reflected (or refracted) at optical interface or propagating through an inhomogeneous medium, photons with opposite spin angular momenta will separate with each other, resulting in a spin-dependent splitting of light, and this phenomenon is called the photonic spin Hall effect (SHE). The photonic SHE is a fundamental physical effect that originates from the spin-orbit interaction of light. It can be regarded as an analog of the spin Hall effect in electronic systems: the right-handed and left-handed circular polarization components of light play the role of spin-up and spin-down electrons, respectively, and the refractive index gradient plays the role of the potential gradient. The unique physical properties of photonic SHE and its powerful ability to manipulate photons have made it a hot spot in modern optics, with wide application prospects in precise metrology, analog optical processing, quantum imaging, and microscopy imaging.
