Abstract

The rotational and translational dynamics of molecular hydrogen trapped within β-hydroquinone clathrate (H_{2}@β-HQ)-a practical example of a quantum particle trapped within an anisotropic confining potential-were investigated using inelastic neutron scattering and Raman spectroscopy. High-resolution vibrational spectra, including those collected from the VISION spectrometer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, indicate relatively strong attractive interaction between guest and host with a strikingly large splitting of rotational energy levels compared with similar guest-host systems. Unlike related molecular systems in which confined H_{2} exhibits nearly free rotation, the behavior of H_{2}@β-HQ is explained using a two-dimensional (2D) hindered rotor model with barrier height more than 2 times the rotational constant (-16.2  meV).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 63. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 December 2018.
All research outputs
#231,460
of 12,372,633 outputs
Outputs from Physical Review Letters
#908
of 25,616 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#11,982
of 274,178 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Physical Review Letters
#66
of 620 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,372,633 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 25,616 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.8. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 274,178 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 620 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
