    Aliev, T M; Özpineci, A

    2002-01-01

    Octet baryon magnetic moments are calculated in framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. The analysis is carried for the general form of the interpolating currents for octet baryons. A comparison of our results on the magnetic moments of octet baryons with the predictions of other approaches and experimental data is presented.

  2. Magnetic moments of charm baryons in chiral perturbation theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetic moments of the charm baryons of the sextet and of the 3*-plet are re-evaluated in the framework of Heavy Hadron Chiral Perturbation Theory (HHCPT). NRQM and broken SU(4) unitary symmetry model are used to obtain tree-level magnetic moments. Calculations of a unitary symmetry part of one-loop contributions to magnetic moments of the charm baryons are performed in detail in terms of the SU(4) couplings of charm baryons to Goldstone bosons. The relations between the magnetic moments of the sextet 1/2 baryons with the one-loop corrections are shown to coincide with the NRQM relations. The correspondence between HHCPT results and those of NRQM and unitary symmetry model is discussed. It is shown that one-loop corrections can effectively be absorbed into the tree-level formulae for the magnetic moments of the charm baryons in the broken SU(4) unitary symmetry model and partially in the NRQM.

    2012-01-01

    Magnetic moments of octet baryons are parameterized to all orders of the flavor SU(3) breaking with the irreducible tensor technique in order to extract the contribution of each flavor quark to the magnetic moments of the octet baryons.The not-yet measured magnetic moment of Σ0 is predicted to be 0.649 μN.Our parameterized forms for the magnetic moments are explicitly flavor-dependent,and hence each flavor component of the magnetic moments can be evaluated directly via the flavor projection operator.It is fouud that the strange magnetic moment of the nucleon is suppressed due to the small isoscalar anomalous magnetic moment of the nucleon.In particular,the strange magnetic form factor of the nucleon turns out to be positive,(G(s)N) (0) =0.428 μN,which is consistent with recent data.

    2002-01-01

    An effective quark Lagrangian is derived from first principles through bilocal gluon field correlators. It is used to write down equations for baryons, containing both perturbative and nonperturbative fields. As a result one obtains magnetic moments of octet and decuplet baryons without the introduc

  5. Magnetic Moment Formulas of Baryons Determined by Quantum Numbers

    OpenAIRE

    Chang, Yi-Fang

    2008-01-01

    We propose that the magnetic moment formulas of baryons may be determined by quantum numbers, and obtain three formulas. This is a new type of magnetic moment formula, and agrees better with the experimental values. It is also similar to corresponding mass formulas of hadrons.

    Singh, Harpreet; Dahiya, Harleen

    2016-01-01

    We have calculated the in-medium magnetic moments of octet baryons in the presence of hot and dense symmetric nuclear matter. Effective magnetic moments of baryons have been derived from medium modified quark masses within chiral SU(3) quark mean field model.Further, for better insight of medium modification of baryonic magnetic moments, we have considered the explicit contributions from the valence as well as sea quark effects. These effects have been successful in giving the description of baryonic magnetic moments in vacuum. The magnetic moments of baryons are found to vary significantly as a function of density of nuclear medium.

  7. Magnetic moment of delta baryons with extended sea

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this we have constructed the baryon wave function with suitable quark-gluon Fock states for delta particles. In our study, the sea may be consisting of two gluons or a quark-antiquark pair along with a gluon. In our study, we constrain the sea with spin 0,1,2 and color singlet state for simplicity. We have calculated the magnetic moments for delta particles, after modification in valence quark wave function with due addition of sea component

  8. The magnetic moments and electromagnetic form factors of the decuplet baryons in chiral perturbation theory

    CERN Document Server

    Li, Hao-Song; Chen, Xiao-Lin; Deng, Wei-Zhen; Zhu, Shi-Lin

    2016-01-01

    We have systematically investigated the magnetic moments and magnetic form factors of the decuplet baryons to the next-to-next-leading order in the framework of the heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. Our calculation includes the contributions from both the intermediate decuplet and octet baryon states in the loops. We also calculate the charge and magnetic dipole form factors of the decuplet baryons. Our results may be useful to the chiral extrapolation of the lattice simulations of the decuplet electromagnetic properties.

  9. Measurement of Short Living Baryon Magnetic Moment using Bent Crystals at SPS and LHC

    CERN Document Server

    Burmistrov, L; Ivanov, Yu; Massacrier, L; Robbe, P; Scandale, W; Stocchi, A

    2016-01-01

    The magnetic moments of baryons containing u,d and s quarks have been extensively studied and measured. The experimental results are all obtained by a well-assessed method that consists in measuring the polarisation vector of the incoming particles and the precession angle when the particle is travelling through an intense magnetic field. The polarization is evaluated by analysing the angular distribution of the decay products. No measurement of magnetic moments of charm or beauty baryons (and τ leptons) has been performed so far. The main reason is the lifetimes of charm/beauty baryons, too short to measure the magnetic moment by standard techniques. Historically, the prediction of baryon magnetic moments was one of the striking successes of the quark model. The importance of the measurement of heavy quark magnetic moment is to test the possibility that the charmed and/or beauty quarks has an anomalous magnetic moment, arising if those quarks are composite objects. Measurements on magnetic moments of heav...

    CERN Document Server

    Aliev, T M; Barakat, T; Savcı, M

    2015-01-01

    Diagonal and transition magnetic moments of the negative parity, spin-1/2 heavy baryons are studied in framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. By constructing the sum rules for different Lorentz structures, the unwanted contributions coming from negative (positive) to positive (negative) parity transitions are removed. It is obtained that the magnetic moments of all baryons, except $\\Lambda_b^0$, $\\Sigma_c^+$ and $\\Xi_c^{\\prime +}$, are quite large. It is also found that the transition magnetic moments between neutral negative parity heavy $\\Xi_Q^{\\prime 0}$ and $\\Xi_Q^0$ baryons are very small. Magnetic moments of the $\\Sigma_Q \\to \\Lambda_Q$ and $ \\Xi_Q^{\\prime \\pm} \\to \\Xi_Q^\\pm$ transitions are quite large and can be measured in further experiments.

  13. Mass and magnetic dipole moment of negative parity heavy baryons with spin--3/2

    CERN Document Server

    Azizi, K

    2015-01-01

    We calculate the mass and residue of the heavy spin--3/2 negative parity baryons with single heavy bottom or charm quark by the help of a two-point correlation function. We use the obtained results to investigate the diagonal radiative transitions among the baryons under consideration. In particular, we compute corresponding transition form factors via light cone QCD sum rules which are then used to obtain the magnetic dipole moments of the heavy spin--3/2 negative parity baryons. We remove the pollutions coming from the positive parity spin--3/2 and positive/negative parity spin--1/2 baryons by constructing sum rules for different Lorentz structures. We compare the results obtained with the existing theoretical predictions.

  14. Octet Baryon Magnetic Moments from Lattice QCD: Approaching Experiment from the Three-Flavor Symmetric Point

    CERN Document Server

    Parreno, Assumpta; Tiburzi, Brian C; Wilhelm, Jonas; Chang, Emmanuel; Detmold, William; Orginos, Kostas

    2016-01-01

    Lattice QCD calculations with background magnetic fields are used to determine the magnetic moments of the octet baryons. Computations are performed at the physical value of the strange quark mass, and two values of the light quark mass, one corresponding to the SU(3) flavor-symmetric point, where the pion mass is ~ 800 MeV, and the other corresponding to a pion mass ~ 450 MeV. The moments are found to exhibit only mild pion-mass dependence when expressed in terms of appropriately chosen magneton units---the natural baryon magneton. This suggests that simple extrapolations can be used to determine magnetic moments at the physical point, and extrapolated results are found to agree with experiment within uncertainties. A curious pattern is revealed among the anomalous baryon magnetic moments which is linked to the constituent quark model, however, careful scrutiny exposes additional features. Relations expected to hold in the large-Nc limit of QCD are studied; and, in one case, the quark model prediction is sig...

  15. Masses and magnetic moments of triple heavy flavour baryons in hypercentral model

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Bhavin Patel; Ajay Majethiya; P C Vinodkumar

    2009-04-01

    Triple heavy flavour baryons are studied using the hypercentral description of the three-body system. The confinement potential is assumed as hypercentral Coulomb plus power potential with power index . The ground state ($J^{P} = \\dfrac{1}{2}^{+}$ and $\\dfrac{3}{2}^{+}$) masses of heavy flavour baryons are computed for different power index, starting from 0.5 to 2.0. The predicted masses are found to attain a saturated value with respect to variation in p beyond the power index > 1.0. Using the spin-flavour structure of the constituting quarks and by defining effective mass of the confined quarks within the baryons, the magnetic moments are computed with no additional free parameters.

  16. Magnetic moments of cascade baryons with strange sea in statistical model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Study of hadrons can help to enrich our knowledge of its structure. Various recent experimental facilities at BASE, COMPASS etc. have provided opportunities for measurements of hadronic properties with an additional strangeness degree of freedom and search for exotic particles. Experimentally, at present magnetic moments of Δ++, Δ0 and Ω- are known. Magnetic moments of decuplet particles have not been measured experimentally because the particles decay strongly and thus do not live long enough. The present work analyses the contribution of sea-quarks to magnetic moment of cascade baryons of JP=3/2+ decuplet. For this, the methodology is based on the statistical model presented. The results are compared with the predictions of other models

  17. Magnetic moments of JP = 3/2+ decuplet baryons using statistical model

    CERN Document Server

    Kaur, Amanpreet

    2015-01-01

    A suitable wave function for baryon decuplet is framed with inclusion of sea containing quark- gluon Fock states. Relevant operator formalism is applied to calculate magnetic moments of JP = 3 2 + baryon decuplet. Statistical model assumes decomposition of baryonic state in various quark-gluon Fock states such as jqqqijgi; jqqqijggi; jqqqijgggi with possibility gluon emitting qq pairs condensates due to the subprocesses like g , qq; g , gg and g , qg where qq = uu; dd; ss. Statistical approach and detailed balance principle in combination is used to find the relative probabilities of these Fock states in avor, spin and color space. The total number of partons (sea) in this formalism are restricted to three gluons due to limited free energy of gluon and suppressed number of strange quark-antiquark pairs. The combined approach is used to calculate the magnetic moments, importance of strangeness in the sea (scalar, vector and tensor). Our approach has confirmed the scalar-tensor sea dominancy over vector sea. Va...

  18. Magnetic moments of neutron stars composed of a real baryon gas

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A study is made in the London approximation of the thermodynamics of a rotating superfluid solution in the npe phase of a spherical neutron star composed of a real baryon gas. The drag of the superfluid protons by the rotating superfluid neutrons leads to the formation of a system of rectilinear neutron vortices parallel to the rotation axis. The inhomogeneous magnetic field /sup mm/ H(r) produced by this system leads when H > H /sub c1/ to the appearance of a nonuniform vortex lattice of unentrained protons with fluxes /phi/0. It is shown that the magnetic field of this lattice has a dipole nature. Integrated characteristics of the neutron star - the mass, radius, and total magnetic moment - are obtained as functions of the central density /rho/0. The magnetic moment of the star varies from 2 . 1027 G . cm3 to 1030 G . cm3. The conditions of occurrence of neutron and proton vortex filaments are considered with allowance for the spherical geometry of the star

  19. Magnetic monopoles and baryon decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The scattering of a non-relativistic quark from a GUT monopole is affected by the anomalous magnetic moment of the quark. In order that monopole catalysis of baryon decay can occur, it must be assumed that the anomalous magnetic moment decreases sufficiently rapidly below the QCD scale. (author)

  20. Chiral Magnetic Wave at Finite Baryon Density and the Electric Quadrupole Moment of the Quark-Gluon Plasma

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The chiral magnetic wave is a gapless collective excitation of quark-gluon plasma in the presence of an external magnetic field that stems from the interplay of chiral magnetic and chiral separation effects; it is composed of the waves of the electric and chiral charge densities coupled by the axial anomaly. We consider a chiral magnetic wave at finite baryon density and find that it induces the electric quadrupole moment of the quark-gluon plasma produced in heavy ion collisions: the 'poles' of the produced fireball (pointing outside of the reaction plane) acquire additional positive electric charge, and the 'equator' acquires additional negative charge. We point out that this electric quadrupole deformation lifts the degeneracy between the elliptic flows of positive and negative pions leading to v2(π+)2(π-), and estimate the magnitude of the effect.

  1. Electromagnetic moments of quasi-stable baryons

    OpenAIRE

    Ledwig, T.; Martin-Camalich, J.; Pascalutsa, V.; Vanderhaeghen, M.

    2011-01-01

    We address electromagnetic properties of quasi-stable baryons in the context of chiral extrapolations of lattice QCD results. For particles near their decay threshold we show that the application of a small external magnetic field changes the particle's energy in a non-analytic way. Conventional electromagnetic moments are only well-defined when the background field B satisfies |eB|/(2M_*|M_*-M-m|) where M_* is the mass of the resonance and M, m the masses of the decay products. An applicatio...

  2. Magnetic moments of the ${S_{11}(1535)}$ and ${S_{11}(1650)}$ resonances, and low-lying negative parity baryons

    CERN Document Server

    Sharma, Neetika; Khemchandani, K P; Dahiya, Harleen

    2012-01-01

    The magnetic moments of the negative parity S_{11}(1535) and S_{11}(1650) resonances have been calculated within the framework of the chiral constituent quark model. The explicit contributions coming from the spin and orbital angular momentum, including the effects of the configurations mixing between the states |N^2P_{1/2}> and |{N^4P_{1/2}}>, are obtained. The calculations have been further extended to determine the magnetic moment of the low-lying negative parity octet baryons. Since the chiral quark model incorporates the constituent quarks and Goldstone bosons as effective degrees of freedom, the effect of the presence of the meson cloud has also been discussed. Further, when the contributions of the "quark sea" to the spin and orbital angular momentum are added, we find interesting results.

  3. Hyperon polarization and magnetic moments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Inclusively produced hyperons with significant polarization were first observed at Fermilab about seventeen years ago. This and subsequent experiments showed that Λ degree were produced polarized while bar Λ degree had no polarization in the same kinematical region. This set the stage for many experiments which showed that most hyperons are produced polarized. Recent Fermilab experiments have showed that this phenomena is even more complex and theoretical understanding is still lacking. Nevertheless polarized hyperon beams have been an extremely useful experimental tool in measuring hyperon magnetic moments. Recently, magnetic moment precession of channeled particles in bent crystals has been observed. This opens the possibility of measuring the magnetic moments of charmed baryons

  4. The possibility to measure the magnetic moments of short-lived particles (charm and beauty baryons) at LHC and FCC energies using the phenomenon of spin rotation in crystals

    Science.gov (United States)

    Baryshevsky, V. G.

    2016-06-01

    The use of spin rotation effect in bent crystals for measuring the magnetic moment of short-lived particles in the range of LHC and FCC energies is considered. It is shown that the estimated number of produced baryons that are captured into a bent crystal grows as ∼γ 3 / 2 with increasing particle energy. Hence it may be concluded that the experimental measurement of magnetic moments of short-lived particles using the spin rotation effect is feasible at LHC and higher energies (for LHC energies, e.g., the running time required for measuring the magnetic moment of Λc+is 2 ÷ 16 hours).

  5. An experimental review of hyperon magnetic moments

  6. Fits combining hyperon semileptonic decays and magnetic moments and CVC

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have performed a test of CVC by determining the baryon charges and magnetic moments from the hyperon semileptonic data. Then CVC was applied in order to make a joint fit of all baryon semileptonic decay data and baryon magnetic moments for the spectrum generating group (SG) model as well as for the conventional (cabibbo and magnetic moments in nuclear magnetons) model. The SG model gives a very good fit with chi2/n/sub D/ = 25/20 approximately equals 21% C.L. whereas the conventional model gives a fit with chi2/n/sub D/ = 244/20

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Impulse approximation and pion-exchange current contributions to the trinucleon magnetic moments are calculated using wave functions generated by solving the configuration-space Faddeev equations for a variety of nucleon-nucleon force models. Careful attention is paid to the origin of important exchange current contributions. Numerical results are compared with previously published calculations and with the experimental data. An attempt is made to isolate and understand sources of discrepancy between our results and those previously published. Calculations which include both impulse and pion-exchange current contributions are in fairly good agreement with experiment, whereas calculations which include only the impulse approximation term are not

  9. Magnetic Moment of $^{59}$Cu

    CERN Multimedia

    2002-01-01

    Experiment IS358 uses the intense and pure beams of copper isotopes provided by the ISOLDE RILIS (resonance ionization laser ion source). The isotopes are implanted and oriented in the low temperature nuclear orientation set-up NICOLE. Magnetic moments are measured by $\\beta$-NMR. Copper (Z=29), with a single proton above the proton-magic nickel isotopes provides an ideal testground for precise shell model calculations of magnetic moments and their experimental verification. In the course of our experiments we already determined the magnetic moments of $^{67}$Ni, $^{67}$Cu, $^{68g}$Cu, $^{69}$Cu and $^{71}$Cu which provide important information on the magicity of the N=40 subshell closure. In 2001 we plan to conclude our systematic investigations by measuring the magnetic moment of the neutron-deficient isotope $^{59}$Cu. This will pave the way for a subsequent study of the magnetic moment of $^{57}$Cu with a complementary method.

  10. Octet magnetic Moments and their sum rules in statistical model

    2013-01-01

    The statistical model is implemented to find the magnetic moments of all octet baryons. The well-known sum rules like GMO and CG sum rules has been checked in order to check the consistency of our approach. The small discrepancy between the results suggests the importance of breaking in SU(3) symmetry.

  11. Magnetic form factors of the octet baryons from lattice QCD and chiral extrapolation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present a 2+1-flavor lattice QCD calculation of the electromagnetic Dirac and Pauli form factors of the octet baryons. The magnetic Sachs form factor is extrapolated at six fixed values of Q2 to physical pseudoscalar masses and infinite volume using a formulation based on heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory with finite-range regularization. We properly account for omitted disconnected quark contractions using a partially-quenched effective field theory formalism. The results compare well with the experimental form factors of the nucleon and the magnetic moments of the octet baryons.

  12. Lagrangian magnetic moment from polarization

    CERN Document Server

    Braghin, Fabio L

    2016-01-01

    An effective Lagrangian term for the electron magnetic moment, and more generally electromagnetic form factors, is calculated by considering the background field method. Two Fierz transformations are performed for a one-photon exchange interaction, and the ambiguity in doing such transformations is exploited. The resulting effective interaction may exhibit an approximated rotational chiral symmetry either for the scalar-pseudoscalar currents interaction or for the vector-axial currents interaction. The leading terms in the expansion of the fermion determinant yield the leading QED effective action with the complete one loop electromagnetic form factors. A model is proposed to produce the tree level magnetic moment term.

    The anomalous magnetic moment of anyons is calculated to leading order in a 1/N expansion. It is shown that the gyromagnetic ratio g remains 2 to the leading order in 1/N. This result strongly supports that obtained in \\cite{poly}, namely that g=2 is in fact exact.

  14. Updating neutrino magnetic moment constraints

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    B.C. Cañas

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available In this paper we provide an updated analysis of the neutrino magnetic moments (NMMs, discussing both the constraints on the magnitudes of the three transition moments Λi and the role of the CP violating phases present both in the mixing matrix and in the NMM matrix. The scattering of solar neutrinos off electrons in Borexino provides the most stringent restrictions, due to its robust statistics and the low energies observed, below 1 MeV. Our new limit on the effective neutrino magnetic moment which follows from the most recent Borexino data is 3.1×10−11μB at 90% C.L. This corresponds to the individual transition magnetic moment constraints: |Λ1|≤5.6×10−11μB, |Λ2|≤4.0×10−11μB, and |Λ3|≤3.1×10−11μB (90% C.L., irrespective of any complex phase. Indeed, the incoherent admixture of neutrino mass eigenstates present in the solar flux makes Borexino insensitive to the Majorana phases present in the NMM matrix. For this reason we also provide a global analysis including the case of reactor and accelerator neutrino sources, presenting the resulting constraints for different values of the relevant CP phases. Improved reactor and accelerator neutrino experiments will be needed in order to underpin the full profile of the neutrino electromagnetic properties.

  15. Minimal muon anomalous magnetic moment

    CERN Document Server

    Biggio, Carla

    2014-01-01

    We classify all possible one-particle (scalar and fermion) extensions of the Standard Model that can contribute to the anomalous magnetic moment of leptons. We review the cases already discussed in the literature and complete the picture by performing the calculation for a fermionic doublet with hypercharge -3/2. We conclude that, out of the listed possibilities, only two scalar leptoquarks and the pseudoscalar of a peculiar two-Higgs-doublet model could be the responsibles for the muon anomalous magnetic moment discrepancy. Were this the case, this particles could be seen in the next LHC run. To this aim, especially to test the leptoquark hypothesis, we suggest to look for final states with tops and muons.

    Wang, Guang-Juan; Ma, Li; Liu, Xiang; Zhu, Shi-Lin

    2016-01-01

    The magnetic moment of a baryon state is an equally important dynamical observable as its mass, which encodes crucial information of its underlying structure. According to the different color-flavor structure, we have calculated the magnetic moments of the hidden-charm pentaquark states with $J^P={\\frac{1}{2}}^{\\pm}$, ${\\frac{3}{2}}^{\\pm}$, ${\\frac{5}{2}}^{\\pm}$ and ${\\frac{7}{2}}^{+}$ in the molecular model, the diquark-triquark model and the diquark-diquark-antiquark model respectively. Although a good description for the pentaquark mass spectrum and decay patterns has been obtained in all the three models, different color-flavor structures lead to different magnetic moments, which can be used to pin down their inner structures and distinguish various models.

  17. On the photon anomalous magnetic moment

    CERN Document Server

    Villalba, S; Villalba, Selym; Rojas, Hugo Perez

    2006-01-01

    It is shown that due to radiative corrections a photon having a non vanishing component of its momentum perpendicular to it, bears a non-zero magnetic moment. All modes of propagation of the polarization operator in one loop approximation are discussed and in this field regime the dispersion equation and the corresponding magnetic moment are derived. Near the first thresholds of cyclotron resonance the photon magnetic moment has a peak larger than the electron anomalous magnetic moment. Related to this magnetic moment, the arising of some sort of photon "dynamical mass" and a gyromagnetic ratio are discussed. These latter results might be interesting in an astrophysical context.

    CERN Document Server

    Gonzalez-Martin, Gustavo R; Gonzalez, Javier G

    2004-01-01

    The magnetic moment of the proton is calculated using a geometric unified theory. The geometry determines a generalized Pauli equation showing anomalous terms due to the triplet proton structure. The theoretical result gives a bare anomalous Lande gyromagnetic g-factor close to the experimental value. The necessary radiative corrections should be included in the actual theoretical dressed value. The first order correction raises the value to 2(2.7796). Similarly we obtain for the neutron gyromagnetic g-factor the value 2(1.9267).

    The magnetic moment of the $\\Lambda \\to \\Sigma^0$ transition between negative parity, baryons is calculated in framework of the QCD sum rules approach, using the general form of the interpolating currents. The pollution arising from the positive--to--positive, and positive to negative parity baryons are eliminated by constructing the sum rules for different Lorentz structures. Nonzero value of the considered magnetic moment can be attributed to the violation of the $SU(3)$ symmetry.

  2. Theory of nuclear magnetic moments - LT-35

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purpose of these notes is to give an account of some attempts at interpreting the observed values of nuclear magnetic moments. There is no attempt at a complete summary of the field as that would take much more space than is used here. In many cases the arguments are only outlined and references are given for those interested in further details. A discussion of the theory of nuclear magnetic moments necessitates many excursions into the details of the nuclear models because the magnetic moments have a direct bearing on the validity of these models. However the main emphasis here is on those features which tend to explain the magnetic moments and other evidence is not discussed unless it has a direct bearing on the problem. In the first part of the discussion the Shell Model of the nucleus is used, as this model seems to correlate a large body of data relating to the heavier nuclei. Included here are the modifications proposed to explain the fact that the experimental magnetic moments do not fit quantitatively with the exact predictions of the Shell Model. The next sections deal with some of the more drastic modifications introduced to explain the large nuclear quadrupole moments and the effect of these modifications on the magnetic moments. Finally we turn to more detailed investigations of the light nuclei, in particular the - Conjugate nuclei. (author)

    We show how the concept of the magnetic dipole moment can be introduced in the same way as the concept of the electric dipole moment in introductory courses on electromagnetism. Considering a localized steady current distribution, we make a Taylor expansion directly in the Biot-Savart law to obtain, explicitly, the dominant contribution of the…

  4. Magnetic moment measurement of magnetic nanoparticles using atomic force microscopy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetic moment per unit mass of magnetic nanoparticles was found by using the atomic force microscope (AFM). The mass of the nanoparticles was acquired from the resonance frequency shift of the particle-attached AFM probe and magnetic force measurement was also carried out with the AFM. Combining with magnetic field strength, the magnetic moment per unit mass of the nanoparticles was determined as a function of magnetic field strength. (technical design note)

    NCI-H1650 lung cancer cell lines labeled with magnetic nanoparticles via the Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule (EpCAM) antigen were previously shown to be captured at high efficiencies by a microfabricated magnetic sifter. If fine control and optimization of the magnetic separation process is to be achieved, it is vital to be able to characterize the labeled cells’ magnetic moment rapidly. We have thus adapted a rapid prototyping method to obtain the saturation magnetic moment of these cells....

  9. Estimation of particle magnetic moment distribution for antiferromagnetic ferrihydrite nanoparticles

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetization as a function of applied magnetic field at different temperatures for antiferromagnetic nanoparticles of ferrihydrite is measured and analyzed considering a distribution in particle magnetic moment. We find that the magnetization of this nanoparticle system is affected by the presence of particle magnetic moment distribution. This particle magnetic moment distribution is estimated at different temperatures. - Highlights: • Magnetic behavior of a nanoparticle system is affected by the presence of particle magnetic moment distribution. • One can not get correct and physically meaningful fit parameters if the particle magnetic moment distribution is ignored. • This particle magnetic moment distribution using the magnetization data is estimated for 2 nm antiferromagnetic ferrihydrite particles

    2005-01-01

    The stringent limit on the electric dipole moment of the neutron forced the issue on the strong CP-problem. The most elegant solution of which is the axion field proposed by Peccei and Quinn. The current limit on the QCD parameter theta coming from the limit on the neutron EDM is of order 10-10. I am going to describe the present status on the neutron EDM searches and further prospects on getting down to theta_qcd sensitivity of 10-13 with the new deuteron EDM in storage rings proposal. For completeness the current status and prospects of the muon g-2 experiment will also be given.

    2003-01-01

    This paper describes the data analysis technique used for magnetic testing at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). Excellent results have been obtained using this technique to convert a spacecraft s measured magnetic field data into its respective magnetic dipole moment model. The model is most accurate with the earth s geomagnetic field cancelled in a spherical region bounded by the measurement magnetometers with a minimum radius large enough to enclose the magnetic source. Considerably enhanced spacecraft magnetic testing is offered by using this technique in conjunction with a computer-controlled magnetic field measurement system. Such a system, with real-time magnetic field display capabilities, has been incorporated into other existing magnetic measurement facilities and is also used at remote locations where transport to a magnetics test facility is impractical.

  12. Nucleon Magnetic Moments and Electric Polarizabilities

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    W Detmold, B C Tiburzi, A Walker-Loud

    2010-06-01

    Electromagnetic properties of the nucleon are explored with lattice QCD using a novel technique. Focusing on background electric fields, we show how the electric polarizability can be extracted from nucleon correlation functions. A crucial step concerns addressing contributions from the magnetic moment, which affects the relativistic propagation of nucleons in electric fields. By properly handing these contributions, we can determine both magnetic moments and electric po larizabilities. Lattice results from anisotropic clover lattices are presented. Our method is not limited to the neutron; we show results for the proton as well.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We investigate the general structure of the neutrino mass and magnetic matrices in the presence of an unbroken horizontal symmetry. In particular, we study the compatibility of masslessness induced by such a symmetry and a non-zero magnetic moment. We show that in this case at least two of the charged leptons must have equal masses. Furthermore, we give a general definition of Dirac neutrinos and demonstrate that they are not necessarily associated with a lepton number. (Author) 15 refs

    If the neutrino has a finite mass and a magnetic moment it would produce transition radiation when crossing the interface between two media. We found that the probability of transition radiation is larger by an order of magnitude using the quantum theory than that recently reported by one of us using classical electrodynamics, and that the energy spectrum of the radiation is nearly uniform.

    The relativistic and quantum theoretical explanations of the magnetic moment anomaly of the electron (or proton) show that it is a complicated function of the fine structure constant. In this work, a simple non-relativistic approach shows that the translational motion of the particle during its spin is responsible for the observed effects.

The model was employed to calculate nuclear magnetic moments. The results are in good agreement with experiment data. Now, we found this model is still interesting and illuminating.

  18. Interpreting magnetic data by integral moments

    Tontini, F. Caratori; Pedersen, L. B.

    2008-09-01

    The use of the integral moments for interpreting magnetic data is based on a very elegant property of potential fields, but in the past it has not been completely exploited due to problems concerning real data. We describe a new 3-D development of previous 2-D results aimed at determining the magnetization direction, extending the calculation to second-order moments to recover the centre of mass of the magnetization distribution. The method is enhanced to reduce the effects of the regional field that often alters the first-order solutions. Moreover, we introduce an iterative correction to properly assess the errors coming from finite-size surveys or interaction with neighbouring anomalies, which are the most important causes of the failing of the method for real data. We test the method on some synthetic examples, and finally, we show the results obtained by analysing the aeromagnetic anomaly of the Monte Vulture volcano in Southern Italy.

  19. Magnetic moment for the negative parity Λ→Σ0 transition in light cone QCD sum rules

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available The magnetic moment of the Λ→Σ0 transition between negative parity baryons is calculated in framework of the QCD sum rules approach by using the general form of the interpolating currents. The pollution arising from the positive-to-positive, and positive-to-negative parity baryons is eliminated by constructing the sum rules for different Lorentz structures. A comparison of our result with the predictions of the results of other approaches for the positive parity baryons is presented.

  20. Magnetic moment of iron in metallic environments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Rare-earth iron nitrides are emerging as an important class of magnetic materials. In certain rare-earth iron compounds, the insertion of small atoms such as nitrogen and boron has resulted in significant changes in the magnetic properties in the form of higher Curie temperatures, enhanced magnetic moments, and stronger anisotropies. In an attempt to understand some of the above, we have focused on two nitride phases of Fe, namely Fe4N (cubic) and Fe16N2 (tetragonal). For the Fe16N2 phase, the average Fe moment reported by different experimental groups varies over a wide range of values, from 2.3μB to 3.5μB. We will discuss some of the recent experiments and examine some related theoretical questions with regard to Fe having such an unusually large moment in a metallic environment. Employing a Hubbard-Stoner-like model in addition to local-density results, it is shown that an unusually large on-site Coulomb repulsion is necessary if one is to obtain a moment as large as 3.5μB.

    There is strong observational evidence for the presence of large-scale magnetic fields MF in galaxies and clusters, with strength $\\sim \\mu$G and coherence lenght on the order of Kpc. However its origin remains as an outstanding problem. One of the possible explanations is that they have been generated in the early universe. Recently, it has been proposed that helical primordial magnetic fields PMFs, could be generated during the EW or QCD phase transitions, parity-violating processes and predicted by GUT or string theory. Here we concentrate on the study of two mechanisms to generate PMFs, the first one is the $\

    We compute the power radiated per unit solid angle of a moving magnetic dipole moment, and its instantaneous radiated power, both non-relativistically and relativistically. This is then applied to various interesting situations: solar neutrons, electron synchrotrons and cosmological Dirac neutrinos. Concerning the latter, we show that hypothesized early-universe Big Bang conditions allow for neutrino radiation cooling and provide an energy loss-mechanism for subsequent neutrino condensation.

    The dependence of the magnetic moment of /sup 11/B on the characteristics of the nucleon-nucleon interaction is investigated in the framework of the shell model. This leads to the construction of a new central two-body interaction for use in variational calculations for nuclei in the second half of the p shell.

  9. The photon magnetic moment problem revisited

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The photon magnetic moment for radiation propagating in magnetized vacuum is defined as a pseudotensor quantity, proportional to the external electromagnetic field tensor. After expanding the eigenvalues of the polarization operator in powers of k2, we obtain approximate dispersion equations (cubic in k2), and analytic solutions for the photon magnetic moment, valid for low momentum and/or large magnetic field. The paramagnetic photon experiences a redshift, with opposite sign to the gravitational one, which differs for parallel and perpendicular polarizations. It is due to the drain of photon transverse momentum and energy by the external field. By defining an effective transverse momentum, the constancy of the speed of light orthogonal to the field is guaranteed. We conclude that the propagation of the photon non-parallel to the magnetic direction behaves as if there is a quantum compression of the vacuum or a warp of space-time in an amount depending on its angle with regard to the field.

  10. Unstable magnetic moments in Ce compounds

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The problems which are connected with the appearance or disappearance of local moments in metals are well reflected in the magnetic behaviour of Ce intermetallic compounds. This work describes experiments on two Ce compounds which are typical examples of unstable moment systems. The first of these is CeAl2 which at low temperatures, shows coexistence of antiferromagnetic order and the Kondo effect. Measurements are presented of the magnetization and the susceptibility in different magnetic field and temperature regions. An analysis of these measurements, using a model for the crystal field effects, shows the agreement between the measurements and the calculations to be reasonably good for CeAl2, but this agreement becomes worse upon decreasing Ce concentration. A phenomenological description of the observations is given. The second compound reported on is CeCu2Si2, the first 'heavy-fermion' superconductor to be investigated. The superconducting state is possibly formed by the quasi-particles of a non-magnetic many body singlet state, and not simply by the (sd) conduction electrons. This being a novel phenomenon, a number of experiments were performed to test this picture and to obtain a detailed description of the behaviour of CeCu2Si2. Measurements of the Meissner volume, confirmed the superconductivity to be intrinsic. (Auth.)

    We have considered a mechanism for inducing a time-reversal violating electric dipole moment (EDM) in atoms through the interaction of a nuclear EDM (d_N) with the hyperfine interaction, the "magnetic moment effect". We have derived the operator for this interaction and presented analytical formulas for the matrix elements between atomic states. Induced EDMs in the diamagnetic atoms 129Xe, 171Yb, 199Hg, 211Rn, and 225Ra have been calculated numerically. From the experimental limits on the atomic EDMs of 129Xe and 199Hg, we have placed the following constraints on the nuclear EDMs, |d_N(129Xe)|< 1.1 * 10^{-21} |e|cm and |d_N(199Hg)|< 2.8 * 10^{-24} |e|cm.

  13. Shuffle dislocation induced magnetic moment in graphene

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Graphene, a honeycomb arrangement of carbon atoms, is a promising material for nanoelectronics applications due to its unusual electronic properties. Recent experiments performed on suspended graphene indicate the existence of intrinsic defects on the samples. It is known that lattice defects such as vacancies or voids leaving unpaired atoms, lead to the formation of local magnetic moments (Vozmediano et al., 2005). The existence and ordering of these moments is largely determined by the bipartite character of the honeycomb lattice seen as two interpenetrating triangular sublattices. Dislocations made by pentagon-heptagon pairs or octagons with an unpaired atom have been studied recently and found to be stable in the graphene lattice (Carpio et al., 2008). These defects frustrate the sublattice structure and affect the magnetic properties of graphene. We study the magnetic properties of graphene in the presence of these defects. The system is described by a pz tight-binding model with electron-electron interactions modelled by a Hubbard term. Spin-polarized mean-field solutions are investigated within an unrestricted Hartree-Fock approximation.

The samples were fabricated and then measured using a vibrating sample magnetometer. Their magnetic moments were calibrated by tracing back to the NIST YIG sphere, SRM 2853. PMID:27096108

    We demonstrate a method to manipulate magnetic resonance data such that the moments of the signal spatial distribution are readily accessible. Usually, magnetic resonance imaging relies on data acquired in so-called k-space which is subsequently Fourier transformed to render an image. Here, via analysis of the complex signal in the vicinity of the centre of k-space we are able to access the first three moments of the signal spatial distribution, ultimately in multiple directions. This is demonstrated for biofouling of a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane module, rendering unique information and an early warning of the onset of fouling. The analysis is particularly applicable for the use of mobile magnetic resonance spectrometers; here we demonstrate it using an Earth\\'s magnetic field system.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study tunneling of the magnetic moment in a particle that has full rotational freedom. Exact energy levels are obtained and the ground-state magnetic moment is computed for a symmetric rotor. The effect of mechanical freedom on spin tunneling manifests itself in a strong dependence of the magnetic moment on the moments of inertia of the rotor. The energy of the particle exhibits quantum phase transitions between states with different values of the magnetic moment. Particles of various shapes are investigated and the quantum phase diagram is obtained. - Highlights: ► We obtain an exact analytical solution of a tunneling spin in a mechanical rotator. ► The quantum phase diagram shows magnetic moment dependence on rotator shape and size. ► Our work explains magnetic properties of free atomic clusters and magnetic molecules.

The energy of magnetic moment is deduced from a creation history of the current state in magnetic field both in the classical and quantum case. But taking this energy into account demolishes the agreement between theory and experiment. Impartial consideration of this problem discovers the contradiction both in theory and experiment.

  1. Sigma-lambda transition magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Primakoff effect was utilized in a measurement of the Σ0-Λ transition magnetic moment at the Fermilab neutral hyperon facility. A beam containing Λ's with average momenta of 150 GeV/c passed through a target. A small fraction of them interacted with the Coulomb field of the target nuclei to produce a Σ0 which subsequently decayed via the process:Σ0 → Λγ. A sample of 5 x 105 Λγ events were analyzed for 7 different targets, and yielded a total of 2028 +/- 139 Coulomb-produced Σ0's. The total Primakoff cross sections for Λ on beryllium, tin, and lead were determined to be σ/sub Be/ = 0.033 +/- 0.022 mb, σ/sub Sn/ = 3.28 +/- 0.34 mb, and σ/sub Pb/ = 9.20 +/- 0.81 mb. There is an additional 7% systematic uncertainty. The Primakoff formalism predicts σ proportional to Z2 μ/sub ΣΛ/ 2, where μ/sub Σλ/ is the Σ0-Λ transition magnetic moment. A least-squares fit of the experimental cross sections to this functional form yielded absolute value of μ/sub ΣΛ/ = (1.59 +/- 0.05 +/- 0.05) nuclear magnetons. This corresponds to a Σ0 lifetime of tau = (0.76 +/- 0.05 +/- 0.05) x 10-19 seconds or a radiative width of Gamma = (8.6 +/- 0.6 +/- 0.6) keV, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. An additional uncertainty due to approximations in the Primakoff formalism applies to these derived quantities: <5% on tau and Gamma, and <2.5% on absolute value of μ/sub ΣΛ/

  2. Higher moments of nucleon spin structure functions in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory and in a resonance model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The third moment d2 of the twist-3 part of the nucleon spin structure function g2 is generalized to arbitrary momentum transfer Q2 and is evaluated in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory (HBChPT) up to order Ο(p4) and in a unitary isobar model (MAID). We show how to link d2 as well as higher moments of the nucleon spin structure functions g1 and g2 to nucleon spin polarizabilities. We compare our results with the most recent experimental data, and find a good description of these available data within the unitary isobar model. We proceed to extract the twist-4 matrix element f2 which appears in the 1/Q2 suppressed term in the twist expansion of the spin structure function g1 for proton and neutron

    The fundamental assumptions of the adiabatic theory do not apply in presence of sharp field gradients as well as in presence of well developed magnetohydrodynamic turbulence. For this reason in such conditions the magnetic moment $\\mu$ is no longer expected to be constant. This can influence particle acceleration and have considerable implications in many astrophysical problems. Starting with the resonant interaction between ions and a single parallel propagating electromagnetic wave, we derive expressions for the magnetic moment trapping width $\\Delta \\mu$ (defined as the half peak-to-peak difference in the particle magnetic moment) and the bounce frequency $\\omega_b$. We perform test-particle simulations to investigate magnetic moment behavior when resonances overlapping occurs and during the interaction of a ring-beam particle distribution with a broad-band slab spectrum. We find that magnetic moment dynamics is strictly related to pitch angle $\\alpha$ for a low level of magnetic fluctuation, $\\delta B/B_0...

  4. Numerical modeling of higher order magnetic moments in UXO discrimination

    Sanchez, V.; Yaoguo, L.; Nabighian, M.N.; Wright, D.L.

    2008-01-01

    The surface magnetic anomaly observed in unexploded ordnance (UXO) clearance is mainly dipolar, and consequently, the dipole is the only magnetic moment regularly recovered in UXO discrimination. The dipole moment contains information about the intensity of magnetization but lacks information about the shape of the target. In contrast, higher order moments, such as quadrupole and octupole, encode asymmetry properties of the magnetization distribution within the buried targets. In order to improve our understanding of magnetization distribution within UXO and non-UXO objects and to show its potential utility in UXO clearance, we present a numerical modeling study of UXO and related metallic objects. The tool for the modeling is a nonlinear integral equation describing magnetization within isolated compact objects of high susceptibility. A solution for magnetization distribution then allows us to compute the magnetic multipole moments of the object, analyze their relationships, and provide a depiction of the anomaly produced by different moments within the object. Our modeling results show the presence of significant higher order moments for more asymmetric objects, and the fields of these higher order moments are well above the noise level of magnetic gradient data. The contribution from higher order moments may provide a practical tool for improved UXO discrimination. ?? 2008 IEEE.

    @@ Based on the density functional theory, we calculate the band structure of an armchair carbon nanotube in an axial magnetic field. The result shows that there are two kinds of magnetic moments with different symmetries. One is the Aharonov Bohm-type magnetic moment which can be easily understood with classical picture, the other belonging to the valence, and conduction sub-bands should be explained by quantum mechanics. We use an effective mass model to analyse the magnetic moments and by comparing with the result of first-principle calculation, we conclude that the effective mass model is reasonable to estimate the change of the band gap in magnetic fields.

  6. Numerical modeling of magnetic moments for UXO applications

    2006-01-01

    The surface magnetic anomaly observed in UXO clearance is mainly dipolar and, consequently, the dipole is the only magnetic moment regularly recovered in UXO applications. The dipole moment contains information about intensity of magnetization but lacks information about shape. In contrast, higher-order moments, such as quadrupole and octupole, encode asymmetry properties of the magnetization distribution within the buried targets. In order to improve our understanding of magnetization distribution within UXO and non-UXO objects and its potential utility in UXO clearance, we present a 3D numerical modeling study for highly susceptible metallic objects. The basis for the modeling is the solution of a nonlinear integral equation describing magnetization within isolated objects. A solution for magnetization distribution then allows us to compute magnetic moments of the object, analyze their relationships, and provide a depiction of the surface anomaly produced by different moments within the object. Our modeling results show significant high-order moments for more asymmetric objects situated at depths typical of UXO burial, and suggest that the increased relative contribution to magnetic gradient data from these higher-order moments may provide a practical tool for improved UXO discrimination.

    The experimental precision of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon has been improved to 0.5 part-per-million by the Brookhaven E821 experiment, similar to the theoretical uncertainty.

  8. Neutral fermion with magnetic moment in external electromagnetic fields

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Dirac-Pauli equation describes interaction of a substantial neutral fermion having μ magnetic dipole moment with the external electromagnetic field. One determined the precise solutions of that equation and the relevant spectrum of energies for the external magnetic field with axial symmetry. The spin-orbital interaction of a neutral fermion with magnetic moment is shown to govern both the specific features of quantum states and the spectrum of fermion energies. These are the bound states of neutral fermion with magnetic moment in some external electrical fields even if the Dirac-Pauli equation does not have a member with fermion mass

    Lensky, Vadim; Pascalutsa, Vladimir

    2014-01-01

    We obtain leading- and next-to-leading order predictions of chiral perturbation theory for several prominent moments of nucleon structure functions. These free-parameter free results turn out to be in overall agreement with the available empirical information on all of the considered moments, in the region of low-momentum transfer ($Q^2 < 0.3$ GeV$^2$). Especially surprising is the situation for the $\\delta_{LT}$ moment, which thus far was not reproducible for proton and neutron simultaneously in chiral perturbation theory. This problem, known as the "$\\delta_{LT}$ puzzle," is not seen in the present calculation.

    Studenikin, Alexander

    2014-01-01

    We consider a millicharged neutrino with nonzero magnetic moment in the presence of rotating and magnetized background matter. The exact solution of the corresponding modified Dirac equation for the neutrino wave function is found. The neutrino energy spectrum is obtained and the effect of neutrino energy quantization is discussed in details. We introduce a new kind of spin operator which is a superposition of longitudinal and transverse polarizations operators for description of the neutrino spin properties in the considered background environment. Within the quasi-classical approach to the problem, radius of the neutrino orbits is derived and the effective "matter induced Lorentz force" is introduced. It is shown that in the considered environment, and also in matter with nonzero gradient of density, neutrino moves with acceleration. In this case a new type of the electromagnetic neutrino radiation (termed "light of millicharged neutrino") can be produced. The considered problem is of interest for astrophys...

  11. Photoproduction of hermaphrodite baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is shown that photoexcitation of the lightest hermaphrodite baryons is strongly suppressed from proton targets but allowed from neutrons, a result that is reminiscent of a quark model selection rule due to Moorhouse (Phys. Rev. Lett.; 16:772 (1966)). This is consistent with suggestions that the P11(1710) is the lightest q3G baryon and eliminates the possibility that the Roper resonance is dominantly an hermaphrodite state. Magnetic moments do not constrain the possibility of considerable mixing of q3G into the nucleon and delta's Fock space wavefunctions. (author)

    α-Fe nanowire array has been electrodeposited into anodic aluminum oxide template. The magnetic moment distributions, in the interior and near the extremities of α-Fe nanowire with 60 nm in diameter, have been studied by means of transmission Mossbauer spectroscopy (MS), conversion electron Mossbauer spectroscopy (CEMS) and micromagnetic simulation. Transmission Mossbauer spectrum (MS) shows that the magnetic moments, inside the α-Fe nanowire array, are well parallel to nanowire, while conversion electron Mossbauer spectrum (CEMS) reveals that the magnetic moments, near the extremities of nanowire, diverge from the long axis of wire, and the average diverging angle calculated by the intensity ratio ofthe 2,5 peaks is about 24.0°. Moreover, the magnetic moment distributions of different depths to the top of wire are counted using micromagnetic simulation, which indicates that, the interior magnetic moments are strictly parallel to nanowire, and the closer the magnetic moment to the top of wire, the larger the diverging angle. Magnetic measurement shows that this α-Fe nanowire array represents a strong magnetic anisotropy.

    Apollo 15 subsatellite magnetic field observations have been used to measure both the permanent and the induced lunar dipole moments. Although only an upper limit of 1.3 x 10 to the 18th gauss-cubic centimeters has been determined for the permanent dipole moment in the orbital plane, there is a significant induced dipole moment which opposes the applied field, indicating the existence of a weak lunar ionosphere.

  14. Spacecraft Attitude Stabilization with Piecewise-Constant Magnetic Dipole Moment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Celani, Fabio

    2016-05-01

    In actual implementations of magnetic control laws for spacecraft attitude stabilization, the time in which Earth magnetic field is measured must be separated from the time in which magnetic dipole moment is generated. The latter separation translates into the constraint of being able to genere only piecewise-constant magnetic dipole moment. In this work we present attitude stabilization laws using only magnetic actuators that take into account of the latter aspect. Both a state feedback and an output feedback are presented, and it is shown that the proposed design allows for a systematic selection of the sampling period.

  17. Large-scale magnetic fields can explain the baryon asymmetry of the Universe

    CERN Document Server

    Fujita, Tomohiro

    2016-01-01

    Helical hypermagnetic fields in the primordial Universe can produce the observed amount of baryon asymmetry through the chiral anomaly without any ingredients beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. While they generate no $B-L$ asymmetry, the generated baryon asymmetry survives the spharelon washout effect, because the generating process remains active until the electroweak phase transition. Solving the Boltzmann equation numerically and finding an attractor solution, we show that the baryon asymmetry of our Universe can be explained, if the present large-scale magnetic fields indicated by the blazar observations have a negative helicity and existed in the early Universe before the electroweak phase transition. We also derive the upper bound on the strength of the helical magnetic field, which is tighter than the CMB constraint, to avoid the overproduction of baryon asymmetry.

    2016-01-01

    The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon is an important observable that tests radiative corrections of all three observed local gauge forces: electromagnetic, weak and strong interactions. High precision measurements reveal some discrepancy with the most accurate theoretical evaluations of the anomalous magnetic moment. We show in this note that the UV finite theory cannot resolve this discrepancy. We believe that more reliable estimate of the nonperturbative hadronic contribution and the new measurements can resolve the problem.

The results are based on the recent data reported by the L3 Collaboration at CERN LEP. Due to the stringent limit of the model mixing angle φ, the effect of this angle on the dipole moments is quite small

    1983-01-01

    The four measured planetary magnetic moments combined with a recent theoretical prediction for dynamo magnetic fields suggests that no dynamo exists in the moon's interior today. For the moon to have had a magnetic moment in the past of sufficient strength to account for at least some of the lunar rock magnetism, the rotation would have been about twenty times faster than it is today and the radius of the fluid, conducting core must have been about 750 km. The argument depends on the validity of the Busse solution to the validity of the MHD problem of planetary dynamos.

    Magnetic moments dilutely dispersed in a metallic host tend to be coupled through the conduction electrons of the metal. This indirect exchange coupling (IEC), known to occur for a variety of magnetic materials embedded in several different metallic structures, is of rather long range, especially for low-dimensional structures like carbon nanotubes. Motivated by recent claims that the indirect coupling between magnetic moments in precessional motion has a much longer range than its static counterpart, we consider here how magnetic atoms adsorbed to the walls of a metallic nanotube respond to a time-dependent perturbation that induces their magnetic moments to precess. By calculating the frequency-dependent spin susceptibility, we are able to identify resonant peaks whose respective widths provide information about the dynamic aspect of the IEC. We show that by departing from a purely static representation to another in which the moments are allowed to precess, we change from what is already considered a long-range interaction to another whose range is far superior. In other words, localized magnetic moments embedded in a metallic structure can feel each other's presence more easily when they are set in precessional motion. We argue that such an effect can have useful applications leading to large-scale spintronics devices.

    For a relativistic particle of mass m, energy E and anomalous magnetic moment μ, the spin-flip angle in a magnetic field B after a length L is φ=(2μBL)/hc((mc2)/E) in ultrarelativistic limit. Contrary to recent assertions, a magnetic moment of μ=10-10μO for the neutrino cannot solve the solar neutrino puzzle by spin-flip in a simple way. The reflection coefficient and other possible effects are also discussed. (author). 11 refs

    A new measurement of the Σ+ magnetic moment is reported. The measurement stems from 12 000 events of the reaction K-p→Σ+π- produced at beam momenta around 460 MeV/c in HYBUC, the hydrogen bubble chamber with an 11.5 T magnetic field. These events represent about 15% of the final statistics. The results from opposite field directions are in close agreement and yield an average value of 2.95 +- 0.31 nuclear magnetons for the total Σ+ magnetic moment. (Auth.)

  13. Determination of the magnetic moment of $^{140}$Pr

    We propose to measure the nuclear magnetic moment of the neutron-deficient isotope $^{140}$Pr using collinear laser spectroscopy at the COLLAPS experiment. This nuclide is one of two nuclear systems for which a modulated electron capture decay has been observed in hydrogen-like ions in a storage ring. The firm explanation of the observed phenomenon is still missing but some hypotheses suggest an interaction of the unpaired electron with the surrounding magnetic fields of the ring. In order to verify or discard these hypotheses the magnetic moment of $^{140}$Pr is required since this determines the energy of the 1s hyperfine splitting.

    1972-01-01

    A method for determining the magnetic moment of a spacecraft from magnetic field data taken in a limited region of space close to the spacecraft. The spacecraft's magnetic field equations are derived from first principles. With measurements of this field restricted to certain points in space, the near-field equations for the spacecraft are derived. These equations are solved for the dipole moment by a least squares procedure. A method by which one can estimate the magnitude of the error in the calculations is also presented. This technique was thoroughly tested on a computer. The test program is described and evaluated, and partial results are presented.

  15. The permanent and induced magnetic dipole moment of the moon

    Science.gov (United States)

    Russell, C. T.; Coleman, P. J., Jr.; Lichtenstein, B. R.; Schubert, G.

    1974-01-01

    Magnetic field observations with the Apollo 15 subsatellite have been used to deduce the components of both the permanent and induced lunar dipole moments in the orbital plane. The present permanent lunar magnetic dipole moment in the orbital plane is less than 1.3 times ten to the eighteenth power gauss-cu cm. Any uniformly magnetized near surface layer is therefore constrained to have a thickness-magnetization product less than 2.5 emu-cm per g. The induced moment opposes the external field, implying the existence of a substantial lunar ionosphere with a permeability between 0.63 and 0.85. Combining this with recent measures of the ratio of the relative field strength at the ALSEP and Explorer 35 magnetometers indicates that the global lunar permeability relative to the plasma in the geomagnetic tail lobes is between 1.008 and 1.03.

    The matrix 8-component Dirac-like form of the P-odd equations for boson fields of spin 1 and 0 are obtained and the GL(2,c) symmetry group of the equations is derived. We found exact solutions of the field equation for vector particles with arbitrary electric and magnetic moments in external constant and uniform electromagnetic fields. The differential probability of pair production of vector particles with electric dipole moments and anomalous magnetic moments by an external constant and uniform electromagnetic field has been found using exact solutions. We have calculated the imaginary and real parts of the electromagnetic field Lagrangian that takes into account the vacuum polarization of vector particles. (orig.)

  17. Electromagnetic structure of octet baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A numerical simulation of quenched QCD on a 24x12x12x24 lattice at β=5.9 is used to calculate the electric and magnetic form factors of the baryon octet. General forms of the baryon interpolating fields are considered. Magnetic moments, electric radii, magnetic radii, and magnetic transition moments are extracted from the form factors. The electric properties are found to be consistent with a quark-model picture involving spin-dependent forces. The lattice results for the magnetic properties show a mass and spin dependence of the effective quark moments which is not accounted for in conventional quark models. Lattice calculations underestimate the magnitude of electric radii, magnetic radii, and magnetic moments compared to experimental measurements. The finite volume of the periodic lattice may be responsible for the discrepancies. The pattern of electromagnetic radii in the lattice results are seen to be generally reproduced in the model results that are considered. The only exception is that of Ξ- which proves to be a sensitive probe of the quark dynamics. Lattice calculations indicate a positive value for the normalized square magnetic radius in Ξ- which contrasts Skyrme model results. Ratios of the magnetic moments allow a more detailed comparison with the experimental measurements. The lattice calculations are seen to better reproduce the experimental ratios than the model calculations

  18. Magnetic moment of constituent fermions in ground states with spontaneously broken translational invariance

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Spontaneous symmetry breaking gives rise to a nonzero order parameter or a ground state expectation value (GEV) of the scalar field that generates energy gaps or constituent masses for the fermions via Yukawa interactions. There are several physical situations in which the order parameters or GEVs of the scalar field (and therefore constituent masses) can become space varying. This can change the definitions of several important physical operators. We investigate and rederive the generalized magnetic moment operator for ‘constituent’ fermions that arises from a space varying order parameter or GEV. We especially consider the high baryon density π0 condensed phase, in which chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken, with space varying expectation values of the σ and π0 fields. This phase has a spin polarized Fermi sea as the ground state. We show that there is indeed generated a macroscopic magnetization in this phase, contrary to what one would have found, if one just used a primitive phenomenological magnetic moment formula for explicit/current fermion masses. This is important in the context of neutron stars, as such a high density state may be responsible for very high magnetic fields in the dense core of neutron stars

    We study baryons in an AdS/CFT model of QCD by Sakai and Sugimoto, realized as small instantons with fundamental string hairs. We introduce an effective field theory of the baryons in the five-dimensional setting, and show that the instanton interpretation implies a particular magnetic coupling. Dimensional reduction to four dimensions reproduces the usual chiral effective action, and in particular we estimate the axial coupling $g_A$ between baryons and pions and the magnetic dipole moments, both of which are proportional to $N_c$. We extrapolate to finite $N_c$ and discuss subleading corrections.

    Non-equilibrium properties of a model system comprised of a subsystem of magnetic moments strongly coupled to a selected Bose field mode and weakly coupled to a heat bath made of a plurality of Bose field modes was studied on the basis of non-equilibrium master equation approach combined with the approximating Hamiltonian method. A variational master equation derived within this approach is tractable numerically and can be readily used to derive a set of ordinary differential equations for various relevant physical variables belonging to the subsystem of magnetic moments. Upon further analysis of the thus obtained variational master equation, an influence of the macroscopic filling of the selected Bose field mode at low enough temperatures on the relaxation dynamics of magnetic moments was revealed.

    2004-01-01

    Neutrino emission drives neutron star cooling for the first several hundreds of years after its birth. Given the low energy ($\\sim$ keV) nature of this process, one expects very few nonstandard particle physics contributions which could affect this rate. Requiring that any new physics contributions involve light degrees of freedom, one of the likely candidates which can affect the cooling process would be a nonzero magnetic moment for the neutrino. To illustrate, we compute the emission rate for neutrino pair bremsstrahlung in neutron-neutron scattering through photon-neutrino magnetic moment coupling. We also present analogous differential rates for neutrino scattering off nucleons and electrons that determine neutrino opacities in supernovae. Employing current upper bounds from collider experiments on the tau magnetic moment, we find that the neutrino emission rate can exceed the rate through neutral current electroweak interaction by a factor two, signalling the importance of new particle physics input to ...

  3. Neutral current induced π0 production and neutrino magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have studied the total cross section, Q2, momentum and angular distributions for pions in the ν(ν) induced π0 production from nucleons. The calculations have been done for the weak production induced by the neutral current in the standard model and the electromagnetic production induced by neutrino magnetic moment. It has been found that with the present experimental limits on the muon neutrino magnetic moment μνμ, the electromagnetic contribution to the cross section for the π0 production is small. The neutrino induced neutral current production of π0, while giving an alternative method to study the magnetic moment of neutrino μνμ, does not provide any improvement over the present experimental limit on μνμ from the observation of this process in future experiments at T2K and NOνA.

    In this study we investigate the magnetic behavior of magnetic multi-core particles and the differences in the magnetic properties of multi-core and single-core nanoparticles and correlate the results with the nanostructure of the different particles as determined from transmission electron microscopy (TEM). We also investigate how the effective particle magnetic moment is coupled to the individual moments of the single-domain nanocrystals by using different measurement techniques: DC magnetometry, AC susceptometry, dynamic light scattering and TEM. We have studied two magnetic multi-core particle systems – BNF Starch from Micromod with a median particle diameter of 100 nm and FeraSpin R from nanoPET with a median particle diameter of 70 nm – and one single-core particle system – SHP25 from Ocean NanoTech with a median particle core diameter of 25 nm.

    2011-09-23

    We study dilute magnetic impurities and vacancies in two-dimensional frustrated magnets with noncollinear order. Taking the triangular-lattice Heisenberg model as an example, we use quasiclassical methods to determine the impurity contributions to the magnetization and susceptibility. Most importantly, each impurity moment is not quantized but receives nonuniversal screening corrections due to local relief of frustration. At finite temperatures, where bulk long-range order is absent, this implies an impurity-induced magnetic response of Curie form, with a prefactor corresponding to a fractional moment per impurity. We also discuss the behavior in an applied magnetic field, where we find a singular linear-response limit for overcompensated impurities. PMID:22026900

  8. From magnetic moment to general spin-isospin modes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Study of nuclear magnetic moments is historically reviewed. The first and second order configuration mixings, exhange currents, their interference and isobar currents are discussed. A unified view of the configuration mixings and the exchange currents is presented in connection with a single particle effective magnetic moment operator used in the shell model. Discussion is extended to general nuclear spin-isospin modes with finite energy momentum transfer. Emphasis is on the spin-isospin modes in the quasifree scattering region. Analyses of 40Ca(p→,p→) and 12C(p,n) at Ep = 500 MeV are reported. (orig.)

    The magnetic dipole moments of the D{sub 2}, and D{sub S{sub 2}}, B{sub 2}, and B{sub S{sub 2}} heavy tensor mesons are estimated in framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. It is observed that the magnetic dipole moments for the charged mesons are larger than that of its neutral counterpart. It is found that the SU(3) flavor symmetry violation is about 10 % in both b and c sectors. (orig.)

    2015-01-01

    We revisit the muon magnetic moment (g-2) in the context of Composite Higgs models and Technicolor, and provide general analytical expressions for computing the muon magnetic moment stemming from new fields such as, neutral gauge bosons, charged gauge bosons, neutral scalar, charged scalars, and exotic charged leptons type of particles. Under general assumptions we assess which particle content could address the $g-2_{\\mu}$ excess. Moreover, we take a conservative approach and derive stringent limits on the particle masses in case the anomaly is otherwise resolved and comment on electroweak and collider bounds. Lastly, for concreteness we apply our results to a particular Technicolor model.

    1997-01-01

    Neutrinos with a magnetic moment $\\mu$ change their helicity when interacting with an electromagnetic field. Various aspects of this effect have been described as spin precession, spin-flip scattering, and magnetic Cherenkov radiation. These perspectives are unified in an expression for the electromagnetic field distribution. Our general formula corrects a previous result and generalizes it to the case where the fields cannot be viewed as classical and where the momentum transfers need not be small. We evaluate our result explicitly for a relativistic QED plasma and determine the depolarization rate to leading order in the fine structure constant. Assuming that big-bang nucleosynthesis constraints do not allow a right-handed neutrino in equilibrium we derive the limit $\\mu<6.2\\EE{-11}\\mu_B$ on the neutrino magnetic moment. Bounds on $\\mu$ from a possible large scale magnetic fields are found to be more stringent even for very weak fields.

    2013-01-01

    The antiproton $(\\bar{p})$ magnetic moment $\\mu \\bar{p} = \\mu_{\\bar{p}} S/(\\bar{h}/2)$ is proportional to its spin $S$. A single trapped $\\bar{p}$ is used for the first time to measure the $\\bar{p}$ magnetic moment in nuclear magnetons, giving $\\mu_\\bar{p}/\\mu N = -2.792 845 \\pm 0.000 012$. The 4.4 parts per million (ppm) uncertainty is 680 times smaller than previously realized. Comparing to the proton moment $\\mu_{p} = \\mu_{p} S/\\bar{h}/2)$ measured using the same method and trap electrodes gives $\\mu_{\\bar{p}}/\\mu_{p} = -1.000 000 \\pm 0.000 005$ to 5 ppm, consistent with the prediction of the CPT theorem.

  13. Semiclassical description of anomalous magnetic moment and chiral anomaly

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is shown that the same term of a modified Bargmann-Michel-Telegdi equation which explains the first-order radiative correction to the electronic magnetic moment accounts for the helicity variation in the infinite momentum limit. (author). 6 refs

    2005-01-01

    We derive an inequality for the distribution of quarks with non-zero orbital angular momentum, and thus demonstrate, in a model-independent way, that a non-vanishing anomalous magnetic moment requires both a non-zero size of the target as well as the presence of wave function components with quark orbital angular momentum L_z>0.

  15. Composite scalar contributions to the anomalous magnetic moments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is shown that the composite scalars recently introduced to explain the high Z0 → e+e-γ rate contribute too much to the lepton anomalous magnetic moments, unless one uses very accurate chiral symmetry or composite models with two preonic scales. (Author)

  17. Neutrino emission in neutron matter from magnetic moment interactions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Neutrino emission drives neutron star cooling for the first several hundreds of years after its birth. Given the low-energy (∼keV) nature of this process, one expects very few nonstandard particle-physics contributions which could affect this rate. Requiring that any new physics contributions involve light degrees of freedom, one of the likely candidates which can affect the cooling process would be a nonzero magnetic moment for the neutrino. To illustrate, we compute the emission rate for neutrino pair bremsstrahlung in neutron-neutron scattering through photon-neutrino magnetic moment coupling. We also present analogous differential rates for neutrino scattering off nucleons and electrons that determine neutrino opacities in supernovae. Employing current upper bounds from collider experiments on the τ magnetic moment, we find that the neutrino emission rate can exceed the rate through neutral current electroweak interaction by a factor 2, signaling the importance of new particle physics input to a standard calculation of relevance to neutron star cooling. However, astrophysical bounds on the neutrino magnetic moment imply smaller effects

    We examine the nucleon strangeness magnetic moment mu(s) with a lowest order meson cloud model. We observe that (1) strangeness in the nucleon is a natural requirement of the empirical relation mu(p)/mu(n)similar or equal to-3/2, which favors an SU(3) octet meson cloud instead of merely the SU(2) pi

Realistic three-nucleon wavefunctions are taken, and long-range one-pion exchange current corrections are included. It is concluded that the model is compatible with the data. (orig.)

  1. Suppression of small baryonic structures due to a primordial magnetic field

    CERN Document Server

    Rodrigues, Luiz Felippe S; Opher, Reuven

    2010-01-01

    We investigate the impact of the existence of a primordial magnetic field on the filter mass, characterizing the minimum baryonic mass that can form in dark matter (DM) haloes. For masses below the filter mass, the baryon content of DM haloes are severely depressed. The filter mass is the mass when the baryon to DM mass ratio in a halo is equal to half the baryon to DM ratio of the Universe. The filter mass has previously been used in semianalytic calculations of galaxy formation, without taking into account the possible existence of a primordial magnetic field. We examine here its effect on the filter mass. For homogeneous comoving primordial magnetic fields of $B_0 \\sim 1$ or 2 nG and a reionization epoch that starts at a redshift $z_s=11$ and is completed at $z_r=8$, the filter mass is increased at redshift 8, for example, by factors 4.1 and 19.8, respectively. The dependence of the filter mass on the parameters describing the reionization epoch is investigated. Our results are particularly important for t...

  2. X-ray magnetic dichroism: from quantitative determination of magnetic moments to imaging of magnetization dynamics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this document, I use some results of my research activities of the last ten years to show the power of x-ray magnetic dichroism for determining magnetic properties of thin layers, multilayers and nano-structures. The use of sum rules for x-ray dichroism allows a quantitative determination of the spin and orbital contributions to the magnetic moment, for each element of a heterogeneous material separately. Used in a qualitative way, x-ray dichroism allows monitoring the magnetization of the different layers in a multilayer material as a function of applied field. In combination with the temporal structure of synchrotron radiation, it is possible to study fast magnetization reversal with element selectivity, which is important for devices like spin valves and magnetic tunnel junctions. Adding the spatial resolution of a photoelectron emission microscope (PEEM), it becomes possible to study all the details of the fast magnetization reversal in complex magnetic systems. (author)

    We investigate how the orbital magnetic moments of electron and hole states in a carbon nanotube quantum dot depend on the number of carriers on the dot. Low temperature transport measurements are carried out in a setup where the device can be rotated in an applied magnetic field, thus enabling...... accurate alignment with the nanotube axis. The field dependence of the level structure is measured by excited state spectroscopy and excellent correspondence with a single-particle calculation is found. In agreement with band structure calculations we find a decrease of the orbital magnetic moment with...... increasing electron or hole occupation of the dot, with a scale given by the band gap of the nanotube....

    1990-01-01

    This paper investigates the dynamic behavior of the magnetic moment of a particle confined in a magnetic dipole field in the presence of a low-frequency electrostatic wave. It is shown that there exist two kinds of resonances (the bounce-E x B drift resonance and the wave-drift resonance) by which the adiabaticity of the magnetic moment is broken. The unstable conditions obtained by theoretical considerations showed good agreement with the numerical results.

    2013-01-01

    Magnetic moments of more than one hundred odd-odd spherical nuclei in ground and excited states are calculated within the self-consistent TFFS based on the EDF method by Fayans {\\it et al}. We limit ourselves to nuclei with a neutron and a proton particle (hole) added to the magic or semimagic core. A simple model of no interaction between the odd nucleons is used. In most the cases we analyzed, a good agreement with the experimental data is obtained. Several cases are considered where this simple model does not work and it is necessary to go beyond. The unknown values of magnetic moments of many unstable odd and odd-odd nuclei are predicted including sixty values for excited odd-odd nuclei.

We found exact solutions of the field equation for vector particles with arbitrary electric and magnetic moments in external constant and uniform electromagnetic fields. The differential probability of pair production of vector particles with the EDM and AMM by an external constant and uniform electromagnetic field has been found using the exact solutions. We have calculated the imaginary and real parts of the electromagnetic field Lagrangian that takes into account the vacuum polarization of vector particles.

  8. Nuclear magnetic and electric dipole moments of neon-19

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis presents a detailed discussion of a series of experiments designed to measure the magnetic and electric dipole moments of the β-emitting nucleus 19Ne. The 19Ne is generated in the reaction 19F(p,n)19Ne and is polarized by a ''stern-Gerlach'' magnet in a rare gas atomic beams machine. The atoms are stored in a cell for many seconds without depolarizing. The parity violating asymmetry in the β angular distribution is used to monitor the nuclear polarization. The polarized atoms are stored in a cell in a uniform magnetic field. The β-asymmetry is monitored by a pair of β-detectors located on either side of the cell. Transitions between the M/sub J/ = +1/2 and M/sub J/ = -1/2 spin states are induced by an rf field generated by a small Helmholtz coil pair surrounding the cell. Nuclear magnetic resonance lines are observed and the magnetic moment of 19Ne measured to be μ(19Ne) = -1.88542(8)μ/sub N/. A new magnet, cell and detectors were designed to give narrow resonance lines. The equipment is described in detail and several resonance line shapes are discussed. The narrowest resonance line achieved with this system was 0.043 Hz FWHM. This width is primarily due to the 19Ne lifetime. Pulsed NMR lineshapes were also observed. The narrow NMR lines observed in the previous experiment were then used as a probe to look for an electric dipole moment (EDM) in 19Ne. Any shift in the resonance frequency correlated with changes in an externally applied electric field would be evidence for an EDM. The EDM of the 19Ne atom was measured to (7.2 +/- 6.2 X 10-22 e-cm. This experiment and possible improvements are discussed in detail

    We report a lattice QCD calculation of the strange quark contribution to the proton's magnetic moment and charge radius. This analysis presents the first direct determination of strange electromagnetic form factors including the physical pion mass with chiral fermions. We perform a model-independent extraction of the strange magnetic moment and the strange charge radius from the electromagnetic form factors in the momentum transfer range of $0.051 \\,\\text{GeV}^2 \\lesssim Q^2 \\lesssim 1.31 \\,\\text{GeV}^2 $. The finite lattice spacing and finite volume corrections are included in a global fitting with $17$ valence quark masses on three lattices with different lattice spacings, different volumes, and three sea quark masses including one at the physical pion mass. We obtain the strange magnetic moment $G^s_M(0) = - 0.073(17)(08)\\, \\mu_N$. The 4-sigma precision in statistics is achieved partly due to the low-mode averaging of the quark loop and low-mode substitution of the nucleon source to improve the statistics ...

    2000-01-01

    We report here on an ongoing experimental program initiated at the ISOLDE facility at CERN for the measurement of magnetic moments of short-lived radionuclides, with the emphasis on magnetic moments of mirror nuclei in far-from-stability regions. The nuclei are polarized by the tilted foil technique and the resulting 0-180 degrees beta asymmetry is monitored as a function of RF frequency applied in an NMR setup. In order to achieve sufficiently high energy for transmission through the foils, the experimental setup is mounted on a high voltage platform. The first experiment in this program was the measurement of the beta asymmetry and the NMR resonance for the ground state of /sup 23/Mg (I=3/2, T/sub 1/2 /=11 3 S), yielding mu =-0.533(6) nm. Improvements to the experimental setup are presently being designed, to be used in conjunction with the new developments at ISOLDE for obtaining high charge-state ions from the EBIS (REX- ISOLDE) ion source. This will help pave the way for measurements of magnetic moments ...

  11. Magnetic moments and non-Fermi-liquid behavior in quasicrystals

    Andrade, Eric

    Motivated by the intrinsic non-Fermi-liquid behavior observed in the heavy-fermion quasicrystal Au51Al34Yb15, we study the low-temperature behavior of dilute magnetic impurities placed in metallic quasicrystals. We find that a large fraction of the magnetic moments are not quenched down to very low temperatures, leading to a power-law distribution of Kondo temperatures, accompanied by a non-Fermi-liquid behavior, in a remarkable similarity to the Kondo-disorder scenario found in disordered heavy-fermion metals. This work was supported by FAPESP (Brazil) Grant No. 2013/00681-8.

  13. Nuclear magnetic moments measured by nuclear magnetic resonance on oriented nuclei

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The configurations of nuclei near the shell closures N=40 and Z=40 were studied. The nuclear magnetic moments have been measured by nuclear magnetic resonance on oriented nuclei (NMR/ON). We have determined the ground state spin of 73Se and magnetic moments of isotopes 73Se(9/2+), 77Br3/2-) and 74Brm(4). The 9/2+ spin and parity assignment to the parent state of 73Se is perfectly compatible with the systematics of N + 39 and N = 41 isotones. The bromine moments around the shell closure N = 40, show a change in protonic configuration. In the second part of this work a precise hyperfine field value of zinc in iron has been determined. The relaxation constant of Zn in iron is established. The new hyperfine field value of zinc in iron allows a more precise reevaluation of the magnetic moments of 69Znm and 71Znm measured with NMR/ON

  14. The secular variation of pulsar magnetic dipole moments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The time dependences of the inertia tensor and of a dissipative torque caused by the nonleptonic weak interaction have been investigated for a certain class of pulsars with no solid core. Early in the life of the pulsar, the angular velocity vector is predicted to move with respect to fixed body axes in such a way that it becomes perpendicular to the magnetic dipole moment. During this motion, the solid outer shell suffers plastic deformation so that the dipole moment becomes approximately collinear with a principal axis. After 104 or 105 yr, the dissipative torque is negligibly small compared with the electromagnetic torque, the Euler equations are those for a simple rigid body, and alignment of spin and dipole moment occurs. If the dipole moment discussed by Lyne et al. (1975) is interpreted as being equal to the component perpendicular to the spin, its secular decay is a natural property of this model and is not a consequence of field decay through electrical resistivity.

  15. Calculated magnetic moments of Nd2Fe14B

    1991-04-01

    A self-consistent spin-polarized band-structure calculation has been performed for the technically important permanent magnet compound Nd2Fe14B. In contrast to earlier calculations, the localized 4f states on the Nd sites are treated in a consistent way. They are not allowed to contribute to the bonding, but they produce a local exchange field, felt by the valence electrons, which is calculated from first-principles local density theory. Assuming a Russel-Saunders coupled Nd 4f moment of 3.3μB/atom, the total magnetic moment is calculated to be 38.1μB/formula unit, to be compared with the experimental value 37.1μB/formula unit [Givord, Li, and Perrier de la Bathie, Solid State Commun. 51, 857 (1984)]. The calculated local Fe moments are quite different on the different crystallographic sites, varying from 2.1μB to 2.9μB/atom.

  17. Deuteron Magnetic Quadrupole Moment From Chiral Effective Field Theory

    Liu, C -P; Mereghetti, E; Timmermans, R G E; van Kolck, U

    2012-01-01

    We calculate the magnetic quadrupole moment (MQM) of the deuteron at leading order in the systematic expansion provided by chiral effective field theory. We take into account parity and time-reversal violation which, at the quark-gluon level, results from the QCD vacuum angle and dimension-six operators that originate from physics beyond the Standard Model. We show that the deuteron MQM can be expressed in terms of five low-energy constants that appear in the parity- and time-reversal-violating nuclear potential and electromagnetic current, four of which also contribute to the electric dipole moments of light nuclei. We conclude that the deuteron MQM has an enhanced sensitivity to the QCD vacuum angle and that its measurement would be complementary to the proposed measurements of light-nuclear EDMs.

    2009-01-01

    Based on the Anderson impurity model and self-consistent approach,we investigate the condition for the screening of a local magnetic moment by electrons in graphene and the influence of the moment on electronic properties of the system.The results of numerical calculations carried out on a finite sheet of graphene show that when the Fermi energy is above the single occupancy energy and below the double occupancy energy of the local impurity,a magnetic state is possible.A phase diagram in a parameter space spanned by the Coulomb energy U and the Fermi energy is obtained to distinguish the parameter regions for the magnetic and nonmagnetic states of the impurity.We find that the combined effect of the impurity and finite size effect results in a large charge density near the edges of the finite graphene sheet.The density of states exhibits a peak at the Dirac point which is caused by the appearance of the edge states localized at the zigzag edges of the sheet.

  19. Solar Neutrinos with Magnetic Moment Rates and Global Analysis

    2002-01-01

    A statistical analysis of the solar neutrino data is presented assuming the solar neutrino deficit to be resolved by the resonant interaction of the neutrino magnetic moment with the solar magnetic field. Four field profiles are investigated, all exhibiting a rapid increase across the bottom of the convective zone, one of them closely following the requirements from recent solar physics investigations. First a 'rates only' analysis is performed whose best fits appear to be remarkably better than all fits from oscillations. A global analysis then follows with the corresponding best fits of a comparable quality to the LMA one. Despite the fact that the resonant spin flavour precession does not predict any day/night effect, the separate SuperKamiokande day and night data are included in the analysis in order to allow for a direct comparison with oscillation scenarios. Remarkably enough, the best fit for rates and global analysis which is compatible with most astrophysical bounds on the neutrino magnetic moment i...

  20. Large orbital magnetic moment in Pt13 clusters

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present an extensive study of Pt13 clusters embedded in a Na-Y zeolite, by comparing calculations for isolated clusters to experimental data. We perform structural refinements for various geometries involving the isolated clusters and calculate the corresponding x-ray absorption and magnetic circular dichroism spectra, from the joint perspective of pseudopotential plane wave calculations and real space multiple scattering theory. Taking into account the spin–orbit coupling significantly improves the previous scalar relativistic predictions of magnetic properties. The ensemble of embedded Pt13 is found to be dominated by a non-magnetic cuboctahedral geometry. One of the implications is that the ground state of Pt13 clusters in the zeolite environment is different from that of isolated particles. We investigate several isomers that yield a magnetic signature. Furthermore, their abundance was estimated by direct comparison with experiment. We found that one third of the magnetic moment of Pt13 comes from the orbital contribution, in agreement with the experimental value. We therefore provide theoretical proof of the extraordinary orbital magnetization in Pt13 clusters. (paper)

    An ab initio calculation of atomic ionization of germanium (Ge) by neutrinos was carried out in the framework of multiconfiguration relativistic random phase approximation. The main goal is to provide a more accurate cross section formula than the conventional one, which is based on the free electron approximation, for searches of neutrino magnetic moments with Ge detectors whose threshold is reaching down to the sub-keV regime. Limits derived with both methods are compared, using reactor neutrino data taken with low threshold germanium detectors.

    2012-08-01

    We investigate the possibility of setting model independent limits for a nonstandard anomalous magnetic moment aτNP of the tau lepton, in future γγ colliders based on Compton backscattering. For a hypothetical collider we find that, at various levels of confidence, the limits for aτNP could be improved, compared to previous studies based on LEP1, LEP2 and SLD data. We show the results for a realistic range of the center of mass energy of the e+e- collider. As a more direct application, we also present the results of the simulation for the photon collider at the TESLA project.

    Magnetic moments of more than one hundred odd-odd spherical nuclei in ground and excited states are calculated within the self-consistent TFFS based on the EDF method by Fayans {\\it et al}. We limit ourselves to nuclei with a neutron and a proton particle (hole) added to the magic or semimagic core. A simple model of no interaction between the odd nucleons is used. In most the cases we analyzed, a good agreement with the experimental data is obtained. Several cases are considered where this s...

    Understanding hadron structure within the framework of QCD is an extremely challenging problem. Our purpose here is to explain the model-independent consequences of the approximated chiral symmetry of QCD for two famous results concerning the quark structure of the nucleon. We show that both the apparent success of the constituent quark model in reproducing the ratio of proton to neutron magnetic moments and the apparent success of the Foldy term in reproducing the observed charge radius of the neutron are coincidental. That is, a relatively small change of the current quark mass would spoil both results.

  5. Symmetry-related motional enhancement of exciton magnetic moment

    A dramatic motional enhancement of heavy- and light-hole exciton magnetic moment in zinc-blende semiconductors under a magnetic field applied parallel to the [001] direction has been put into evidence when the exciton moves along the same direction [J. J. Davies et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 187403 (2006)]. The authors of the paper assigned the effect to a mixing between the 1S and 2P exciton states arising from the cubic term in the Luttinger Hamiltonian expansion in momentum. Such exciton states do not take into account the exact crystal structure since they are just eigenstates of the angular momentum. In addition, the Luttinger Hamiltonian does not take into account the full magnetic-field effect since it does not include the gauge transformations under the symmetry operations of the structure under the field. By determining the exact symmetry of the exciton states, it is shown here that, under a field parallel to the [001] direction, the Zeeman Splitting value vanishes at the {gamma} point and, due to accidental quasi-degeneracy in energy between dark and bright exciton states, becomes finite when the exciton moves parallel to the field. A perturbation model allows fitting experimental data and explains the exciton magnetic-moment enhancement with kinetic energy. On the contrary, under a field parallel to the [110] direction with the exciton moving parallel to the field, no accidental degeneracy probably takes place between exciton states. As a consequence, the concept of Zeeman Splitting is not relevant since no energy level is degenerate. In addition, a possible quasi-degeneracy between the excitons recombining with the {sigma}{sup +} and {sigma}{sup -} polarizations, respectively, would not allow coupling their two states, hence would not change notably the experimental results.

    Full Text Available Theory of the generation of magnetic moment field from resonant interaction of three high frequency electromagnetic waves in un-magnetized dense electron plasma is developed including the relativistic change of electron mass. It is shown that the inclusion of relativistic effect enhances the magnetic moment field. For high intensity laser beams this moment field may be of the order of a few mega gauss. Such a high magnetic field can considerably affect the transport of electrons in fusion plasma

    2014-01-01

    We consider the contributions of individual new particles to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, utilizing the generic framework of simplified models. We also present analytic results for all possible one-loop contributions, allowing easy application of these results for more complete models which predict more than one particle capable of correcting the muon magnetic moment. Additionally, we provide a Mathematica code to allow the reader straightforwardly compute any 1-loop contribution. Furthermore, we derive bounds on each new particle considered, assuming either the absence of other significant contributions to $a_\\mu$ or that the anomaly has been resolved by some other mechanism. In summary we found the following particles capable of explaining the current discrepancy, assuming unit couplings: $2$TeV ($0.3$TeV) neutral scalar with pure scalar (chiral) couplings, $4$TeV doubly charged scalar with pure pseudoscalar coupling, $0.3-1$TeV neutral vector boson depending on what couplings are used (vector...

    The magnetic moments of Gd and Fe in gadolinium iron garnet (Gd3Fe5O12) were probed at 77 and 300 K by soft-X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (SXMCD) measurements at the GdMa4,5 and at the FeL2,3 absorption edges.

    The gravitational effects (precession of charge-less particles and deflection of light) in the gravitational field of a celestial body with magnetic charge and moment (CM)are investigated. We found that the magnetic charge always weakens the pure Schwarzschild effects, while the magnetic dipole moment deforms the effects in a more complicated way.

In order to further understand such peculiar temperature dependence, we have measured the magnetic properties of monodisperse hematite (α-Fe2O3) nanoparticles, grown using a microemulsion precipitation technique, which minimizes the impact of the particle moment distribution on the measured properties of the samples. Our measured results indicate that the net magnetization of these nanoparticles, when small, indeed increases linearly with increasing temperature. This is in sharp contrast to the bulk-like behavior of α-Fe2O3, which was observed in particles with size larger than 120 nm. [1] M. Seehra et al, Phys. Rev. B 61, 3513 (2000) [2] S. Mørup, C.

    Full Text Available Ab initio calculations of magnetic moments for icosahedral clusters contained in crystal structures Al10Mn3, Al5Co2, Al17Mn4 (Al13Cr4Si4-type fulfilled in the framework of Density Functional Theory. The AlMn cluster having the trigonal D3h symmetry with the triangle of Mn ions in the interior has the moment being equal to three magnetic moments of a single manganese ion (4.4 μB, the moment of the tetrahedral Td cluster with the Mn tetrahedron in the interior is equal approximately to twelve magnetic moments of the single manganese ion (15.5 μB. The magnetic moment of icosahedral Al-Co clusters having the same configuration is equal to zero. The magnetic moments of the rod assembled from the icosahedral clusters with the sequence Td D3h - Td was found to be 20.5 μB. This value permits to explain the giant magnetic moment of icosahedral and decagonal Al-Mn quasicrystals and gives the indirect evidence to the hierarchical model of the quasicrystals structure proposed by the authors recently. An arrangement of magnetic moment carriers in the interior of the aluminum shell of icosahedral clusters permits to suggest the interaction between contacting manganese ions as the main origin of the giant magnetic moment of the Al-Mn quasicrystals.

  13. Magnetic moments and hyperfine fields at Fe in 3d-transition metals

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The magnetic moments and hyperfine fields at Fe sites in 3d-transition metals are calculated using the first principle discrete variational method in local density approximation. Although a large positive moment is retained at each Fe site, the hyperfine fields varied from large negative to large positive values. It is concluded that the absence of Moessbauer magnetic splitting does not necessarily imply the absence of local magnetic moments. (orig.)

    We present our results for the leading-order hadronic quark-connected contributions to the electron, the muon, and the tau anomalous magnetic moments obtained with four dynamical quarks. Performing the continuum limit and an analysis of systematic effects, full agreement with phenomenological results is found. To estimate the impact of omitting the quark-disconnected contributions to the hadronic vacuum polarisation we investigate them on one of the four-flavour ensembles. Additionally, the light quark contributions on the four-flavour sea are compared to the values obtained for $N_f=2$ physically light quarks. In the latter case different methods to fit the hadronic vacuum polarisation function are tested.

  15. Charged point particles with magnetic moment in general relativity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Halbwachs Lagrangean formalism for the theory of charged point particles with spin (g = 2) is generalized and formulated in General Relativity for particles of arbitrary charge and magnetic moment. Equations are obtained, both corresponding to Frenkel's condition Ssub(μν)Xsup(ν) = 0 and to Nakano's condition Ssub(μν)Psup(ν) = 0. With the later condition the exact equations are highly coupled and non linear. When linearized in the electromagnetic and gravitational fields they coincide with de Groot-Suttorp equations for vanishing gravitational fields and with Dixon-Wald equations in the absence of electromagnetic field. The equations corresponding to Frenkel's condition, when linearized in Ssub(μν), coincide with Papapetrou's and Frenkel's equations in the corresponding limits

    The muon g-2 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory measures the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, $a_\\mu$, very precisely. This measurement tests the Standard Model theory. The analysis for the data collected in 2000 (a $\\mu^+$ run) is completed and the accuracy on $a_\\mu$ is improved to 0.7 ppm, including statistical and systematic errors. The data analysis was performed blindly between the precession frequency and the field analysis groups in order to prevent a possible bias in the $a_\\mu$ result. The observed difference between the theory and our most recent experimental result is quite important for further studies of the Standard Model theory. In 2001, we ran for the first time with $\\mu^-$ and the analysis of this data will provide $a_\\mu$ with similar statistical power.

  17. Rosenbluth scattering and Pauli's approach to anomalous magnetic moments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In standard QED particle interactions are evaluated using minimal coupling, coupling the particles solely through their (electric monopole) charges. The Direc Hamiltonian is used to describe the interaction of a single spin-1/2 particle with an electromagnetic field. Pauli suggested the addition of a further gauge-invariant term to the Dirac Hamiltonian where the coupling constant for this extra term should not be directly linked to the particle's electric charge. We study some of the effects of this additional term and show that for the scattering of electrons off protons, the first-order Pauli-Dirac analysis has at least as good agreement with experiment as previous analyses based on the Dirac Hamiltonian. We show that Rosenbluth used the incorrect sign on the anomalous magnetic moment of the proton. (author)

  18. Interfacial tuning of perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and spin magnetic moment in CoFe/Pd multilayers

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We report on a strong perpendicular magnetic anisotropy in [CoFe 0.4 nm/Pd t]6 (t=1.0–2.0 nm) multilayers fabricated by DC sputtering in an ultrahigh vacuum chamber. Saturation magnetization, Ms, and uniaxial anisotropy, Ku, of the multilayers decrease with increasing the spacing thickness; with a Ms of 155 emu/cc and a Ku of 1.14×105 J/m3 at a spacing thickness of t=2 nm. X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism measurements reveal that spin and orbital magnetic moments of Co and Fe in CoFe film decrease as a function of Pd thickness, indicating the major contribution of surface/interfacial magnetism to the magnetic properties of the film. - Highlights: • Strong perpendicular magnetic anisotropy essentially contributed by interfacial anisotropy. • Controllably magnetic properties with low Ms, high Ku, high P. • Interfacial magnetic moments modified by CoFe/Pd interfaces with strong spin–orbit coupling. • Narrow Bloch walls with Néel caps. • Superior magnetic characteristics for spin-torque applications

    The magnetized pure pion gradient ($\\mathcal{5}\\phi$) phase in the deconfined Sakai-Sugimoto model is explored at zero and finite temperature. We found that the temperature has very small effects on the phase. The thermodynamical properties of the phase shows that the excitations behave like a scalar solitonic free particles. By comparing the free energy of the pion gradient phase to the competing multiquark-pion gradient (MQ-$\\mathcal{5}\\phi$) phase, it becomes apparent that the pure pion gradient is less thermodynamically preferred than the MQ-$\\mathcal{5}\\phi$ phase. However, in the parameter space where the baryonic chemical potential is smaller than the onset value of the multiquark, the dominating magnetized nuclear matter is the pion gradient phase.

  20. Magnetic-Compton-scattering study of spin moments in UFe2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Spin moments were derived from the magnetic-Compton profile of UFe2, which was measured using 59.38-keV circularly polarized synchrotron radiation from the Accumulation Ring Source at KEK, Japan. Although the net moment on the uranium site is no more than a tenth of a Bohr magneton, the individual spin and orbital moments, which are coupled antiparallel, are much larger and it is the spin moment that can be determined in magnetic-Compton scattering. The data have been analyzed in terms of the U 5f, Fe 3d and delocalized spin moments. The observed uranium-5f spin moment is less than half (i.e., B) and the diffuse spin moment more than double (i.e., >0.20μB) those predicted from theory. These values compare favorably with those deduced from neutron measurements of the total magnetization. copyright 1997 The American Physical Society

    impurities 1/taus and their magnetic cross section sigmas are calculated. We find that single V surface impurities are magnetic while single Mo and Co impurities are non-magnetic. Co surface clusters are magnetic. In chapter 7, thin films of Na, K, Rb and Cs are quench condensed, then covered with 1/100 of a mono-layer of Ti and finally covered with the original host. The magnetization of the films is measured by means of the anomalous Hall effect. An anomalous Hall resistance RAHE is observed for Ti on the surface of K, Rb and Cs and for Ti inside of Cs. Essentially the RAHE varies linearly with the magnetic field and is inversely proportional to the inverse temperature. A small non-linearity of RAHE suggests a Ti moment of about 1microB.

    We investigate the quantum corrections of the anomalous magnetic moment (AMM) for fermions in the presence of a strong magnetic field using the Ritus's approach. At strong fields the particles get different AMM's depending on the LL's. This result is different from what is obtained with the Schwinger's approximation at weak field where the AMM is independent of the LL. We analyze the significance of the AMM contribution to the Equation of State (EoS) of the magnetized system, in the weak and strong field approximations.

  4. Measurement of the magnetic moment of the negative muon bound in different atoms

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Theoretical calculations show that the magnetic moment of the electron and the negative muon in the bound state in an atom should be different from the magnetic moment of the free particle due to their relativistic motion. There are also additional radiative corrections to the magnetic moment of a bound electron (muon) due to the presence of the strong Coulomb field of the atomic nucleus. The results of the measurements of the magnetic moment of the negative muon in carbon, oxygen, magnesium, silicon, sulfur, and zinc are presented. The accuracy of the measurements makes it possible to prove the dependence of the relativistic correction to the magnetic moment of a bound muon on Z of the atom

    The magnetic moment of a single impurity atom in a finite free electron gas is studied in a combined x-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopy and density functional theory study of size-selected free chromium-doped gold clusters. The observed size-dependence of the local magnetic moment can essentially be understood in terms of the Anderson impurity model. Electronic shell closure in the host metal minimizes the interaction of localized impurity states with the confined free electron gas and preserves the full magnetic moment of $\\unit[5]{\\mu_B}$ in $\\mathrm{CrAu}_{2}^{+}$ and $\\mathrm{CrAu}_{6}^{+}$ clusters. Even for open-shell species, large local moments are observed that scale with the energy gap of the gold cluster. This indicates that an energy gap in the free electron gas generally stabilizes the local magnetic moment of the impurity.

  6. Evaluation of orbital moment in Ni-Zn ferrites: A magnetic Compton scattering study

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Temperature dependent magnetic Compton profiles of Ni1-xZnxFe2O4 (x = 0.0, 0.1, 0.2) ferrites have been decomposed into component profiles to determine the site-specific magnetic moments. For a quantitative evaluation of orbital moment, the spin momentum density data have been combined with magnetization data. Interestingly, the orbital magnetic moment decreases from 0.25 ± 0.03 μB/f.u. (for x = 0.0) to 0.09 ± 0.03 μB/f.u. (for x = 0.2) which is in contrast to spin moment. A decrease in ratio of orbital to spin moments in Ni rich ferrites is explained on the basis of spin-orbit coupling and crystal field interaction.

    The magnetic properties of a metastable iron-mercury alloy have been investigated in the temperature range from 5 to 200 K by Mossbauer spectroscopy and magnetization measurements. At low temperature the magnetic moment per iron atom is larger than af alpha-Fe. The effective spontaneous magnetic...... moment for the iron-mercury alloy extrapolated to 0 K was found to be 2.40 Bohr magnetons per iron atom. By applying magnetic fields up to 12 T it was possible to further increase the magnetization. Mossbauer results showed that the high field susceptibility could not be explained by spin canting effects...

    2004-01-01

    We have used a model of magnetic accretion to investigate the rotational equilibria of magnetic cataclysmic variables (mCVs). The results of our numerical simulations demonstrate that there is a range of parameter space in the P_spin / P_orb versus mu_1 plane at which rotational equilibrium occurs. This has allowed us to calculate the theoretical histogram describing the distribution of magnetic CVs as a function of P_spin / P_orb. We show that this agrees with the observed distribution assuming that the number of systems as a function of white dwarf magnetic moment is distributed approximately according to N(mu_1) d mu_1 proportional to 1/mu_1 d mu_1. The rotational equilibria also allow us to infer approximate values for the magnetic moments of all known intermediate polars. We predict that intermediate polars with mu_1 > 5 x 10^33 G cm^3 and P_orb > 3h will evolve into polars, whilst those with mu_1 3h will either evolve into low field strength polars which are (presumably) unobservable, and possibly EUV ...

    2016-01-01

    A special electrochemical cell enabling in situ electrodeposition in a SQUID magnetometer is applied to study the magnetic moment of ultrathin Co films during growth on an Au(111) substrate. The in situ electrodeposition approach allows a total elimination of the magnetic background signal of the substrate, thus the magnetic moment which arises exclusively from the deposited Co film could be measured with monolayer sensitivity. The average thickness of the deposited Co films dav as determined from the transferred charge can be adjusted easily by varying the parameters of the electrodeposition. Hence, the magnetic moment of Co thin films could be determined in absolute terms as a function of the film thickness dav. For the first few atomic layers an enhancement of the magnetic moment per Co atom compared to the bulk could be observed, which increases steadily with lowering dav, reaching up to 40%.

    We investigate the degradation of the magnetic moment of a 300 nm thick FePt film induced by Focused Ion Beam (FIB) milling. A 1 μm × 8 μm rod is milled out of a film by a FIB process and is attached to a cantilever by electron beam induced deposition. Its magnetic moment is determined by frequency-shift cantilever magnetometry. We find that the magnetic moment of the rod is μ = 1.1 ± 0.1 × 10-12 Am2, which implies that 70% of the magnetic moment is preserved during the FIB milling process. This result has important implications for atom trapping and magnetic resonance force microscopy, which are addressed in this paper.

    Full Text Available In order to investigate the electronic and magnetic properties of a bcc Fe/Co (001 multilayer, we have performed electronic structure calculations employing the total energy full-potential linear muffin tin orbital method. The magnetic moments of the layers are calculated. Based on these results, the magnetization profiles and the microscopic origin of the enhancement of Fe moments in the multilayers of the same Co content but with different interface qualities are reported. Large enhancement of magnetic moment is observed in the Fe monolayer located at the interface, and an even greater increase is obtained for the multilayer with one monolayer of intermixing between Fe and Co layers. The Co atoms were found to have similar magnetic moments in the bulk and at the interface.

We present results from a systematic study of the hyperfine (HF) structure of antiprotonic helium where we have achieved a precision more than a factor of 10 better than our first measurement. A comparison between the experimental results and three-body quantum electrodynamic (QED) calculations leads to a new value for the antiproton magnetic moment μsp-bar=-2.7862(83)μN, which agrees with the magnetic moment of the proton within 2.9x10-3.

    We examine the physics of the early universe when neutrinos (electron neutrino, muon neutrino, tau neutrino) possess transition magnetic moments. These extra couplings beyond the usual weak interaction couplings alter the way neutrinos decouple from the plasma of electrons/positrons and photons. We calculate how transition magnetic moment couplings modify neutrino decoupling temperatures, and then use a full weak, strong, and electromagnetic reaction network to compute corresponding changes in Big Bang Nucleosynthesis abundance yields. We find that light element observational constraints and other cosmological constraints may allow probes of neutrino transition magnetic moments which are not directly available in the laboratory.

    Hypernuclear magnetic moment and ∧-N interaction in 17∧O has been studied within relativistic mean field theory.Without core polarization, the relativistic results are found to fit the Schmidt value well and not be sensitive to ∧-N interaction. The relativistic magnetic moment is enhanced with nearly equal contributions of the relativistic and free masses. When ∧ hyperon occupies the l = 0 or l = 1 orbit, the effect of ∧-N interaction on the magnetic moment of valence proton is different.

    2010-01-01

    The one-pion exchange current corrections to isoscalar and isovector magnetic moments of double-closed shell nuclei plus and minus one nucleon with $A=15,17,39$ and 41 have been studied in the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory and compared with previous relativistic and non-relativistic results. It has been found that the one-pion exchange current gives a negligible contribution to the isoscalar magnetic moments but a significant correction to the isovector ones. However, the one-pion exchange current doesn't improve the description of nuclear isovector magnetic moments for the concerned nuclei.

    The magnetic properties of a metastable iron-mercury alloy have been investigated in the temperature range from 5 to 200 K by Mossbauer spectroscopy and magnetization measurements. At low temperature the magnetic moment per iron atom is larger than af alpha-Fe. The effective spontaneous magnetic...... moment for the iron-mercury alloy extrapolated to 0 K was found to be 2.40 Bohr magnetons per iron atom. By applying magnetic fields up to 12 T it was possible to further increase the magnetization. Mossbauer results showed that the high field susceptibility could not be explained by spin canting effects....... It was found that the field-induced increase of the magnetic moment in the metastable iron-mecury alloy was about 0.06 Bohr magnetons per iron atom in the temperature range from 5 to 200 K for a field change from 6 to 12 T....

  18. Ultra-high Sensitivity Moment Magnetometry of Geological Samples Using Magnetic Microscopy

    CERN Document Server

    Lima, Eduardo A

    2016-01-01

    Paleomagnetically useful information is expected to be recorded by samples with moments up to three orders of magnitude below the detection limit of standard superconducting rock magnetometers. Such samples are now detectable using recently developed magnetic microscopes, which map the magnetic fields above room-temperature samples with unprecedented spatial resolutions and field sensitivities. However, realizing this potential requires the development of techniques for retrieving sample moments from magnetic microscopy data. With this goal, we developed a technique for uniquely obtaining the net magnetic moment of geological samples from magnetic microscopy maps of unresolved or nearly unresolved magnetization. This technique is particularly powerful for analyzing small, weakly magnetized samples such as meteoritic chondrules and terrestrial silicate crystals like zircons. We validated this technique by applying it to field maps generated from synthetic sources and also to field maps measured using a superco...

    We investigate many-body effects near the edge of a single-walled carbon nanotube and find it turns magnetic with quantized edge moment solely depends on the chiral vector, i.e. the topology of the carbon nanotube. The distribution of the edge moment reveals an approximate supersymmetry even in a realistic model. Our findings demonstrate crucial importance of the interplay between the electronic correlation and the edge morphology. The edge moment provides an excellent candidate for nanomagne...

  20. Cancellation of spin and orbital magnetic moments in δ-Pu: Theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Density functional theory (DFT), in conjunction with the fixed-spin-moment (FSM) method, spin-orbit coupling (SO), and orbital polarization (OP), is shown to retain key features of the conventional DFT treatment of δ-Pu while at the same time not producing the substantial net magnetic moments commonly predicted by this theory. It is shown that when a small adjustment of the spin moment (less than 20%) is allowed, a complete spin- and orbital-moment cancellation occurs which results in a zero net magnetic moment in δ-Pu. This minor modification, accomplished by the FSM method, is shown to have a very small effect on the calculated total energy as well as the electron density-of-states (DOS). The photoemission spectra (PES), obtained from the DOS of the present model, compares equal or better to measured spectra, than that of two other recent non-magnetic models for δ-Pu

    We have used a MHz lock-in x-ray spectromicroscopy technique to directly detect changes in magnetic moment of Cu due to spin injection from an adjacent Co layer. The elemental and chemical specificity of x rays allows us to distinguish two spin current induced effects. We detect the creation of transient magnetic moments of 3×10–5μB on Cu atoms within the bulk of the 28 nm thick Cu film due to spin accumulation. The moment value is compared to predictions by Mott’s two current model. We also observe that the hybridization induced existing magnetic moments at the Cu interface atoms are transiently increased by about 10% or 4×10–3μB per atom. As a result, this reveals the dominance of spin-torque alignment over Joule heat induced disorder of the interfacial Cu moments during current flow.

    2016-04-01

    We show that the S/F/S Josephson φ0 junction permits detection of macroscopic quantum tunneling and quantum oscillation of the magnetic moment by measuring the ac voltage across the junction. Exact expression for the tunnel splitting renormalized by the interaction with the superconducting order parameter is obtained. It is demonstrated that magnetic tunneling may become frozen at a sufficiently large φ0. The quality factor of quantum oscillations of the magnetic moment due to finite ohmic resistance of the junction is computed. It is shown that magnetic tunneling rate in the φ0 junction can be controlled by the bias current, with no need for the magnetic field.

    In 1832, Gauss made the first absolute measurements of magnetic fields and of magnetic moments in experiments that are straightforward and instructive to replicate. We show, using rare-earth permanent magnets and a variation of Gauss's technique, that the horizontal component of the ambient geomagnetic field, as well as the size of the magnetic moments of such magnets, can be found. The method shows the connection between the SI and cgs emu unit systems for these quantities and permits an absolute realization of the Ampere with considerable precision.

The implications of such a model have been investigated in detail for the effects of symmetry breaking and GP parameters pertaining to the two- and three-quark contributions. It is found that the CQM is successful in giving a quantitative and qualitative description of the quadrupole moments.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    X-ray magnetic diffraction experiments of a ferromagnetic rare-earth compound CeRh3B2 have been performed, and the spin and orbital magnetic form factors have been measured. Density distributions of the spin and orbital magnetic moments in real space have been obtained by using Maximum Entropy Method. Low peaks at Rh sites as well as high peaks at Ce sites are observed in these distribution maps. We have estimated the spin and orbital magnetic moments at the Ce and Rh sites in the distribution maps, and have obtained small but nonnegligible spin and orbital magnetic moments of Rh. This is probably the first experimental evidence showing existence of the spin and orbital moments of Rh in this compound.

    Effects of core polarization and tensor coupling on the magnetic moments in 13Λ C,17Λ O,and 41Λ Ca Λ-hypernuclei are studied by employing the Dirac equation with scalar,vector and tensor potentials.It is found that the effect of core polarization on the magnetic moments is suppressed by Λ tensor coupling.The Λ tensor potential reduces the spin-orbit splitting of PΛ states considerably.However,almost the same magnetic moments are obtained using the hyperon wavefunction obtained via the Dirac equation either with or without the Λ tensor potential in the electromagnetic current vertex.The deviations of magnetic moments for pΛ states from the Schmidt values are found to increase with nuclear mass number.

    2011-12-01

    The light flavour baryons are studied within the quark model using the hypercentral description of the three-body system. The confinement potential is assumed as hypercentral Coulomb plus power potential (hCPP ) with power index . The masses and magnetic moments of light flavour baryons are computed for different power indices, , starting from 0.5 to 1.5. The predicted masses and magnetic moments are found to attain a saturated value with respect to variation in beyond the power index > 1.0. Further, we computed transition magnetic moments and radiative decay width of light flavour baryons. The results are in good agreement with the known experimental as well as other theoretical models.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An approach that can be used to measure the magnetic moment of a magnetized nanoparticle or nanostructure from an electron-optical phase image is introduced. The measurement scheme is based on integration of the gradient of the measured phase image within a circular boundary that contains the structure of interest. The quantity obtained is found to be directly proportional to the magnetic moment of the particle, with a constant of proportionality that does not depend on the particle's shape or magnetization state. The measurement of magnetic moments from both simulated and experimental phase images is demonstrated, and strategies are presented that can be utilized to overcome sources of error associated with, for example, the presence of neighboring magnetic particles and the perturbation of the holographic reference wave.

    The experimental study of nuclear magnetic moments, using the Transient Field technique, makes use of spin-orbit hyperfine interactions to generate strong magnetic fields, above the kilo-Tesla regime, capable to create a precession of the nuclear spin. A theoretical description of such magnetic fields is still under theoretical research, and the use of parametrizations is still a common way to address the lack of theoretical information. In this contribution, a review of the main parametrizations utilized in the measurements of Nuclear Magnetic Moments will be presented, the challenges to create a theoretical description from first principles will be discussed.

Magnetization and quadrupole moment plateaus are observed for the antiferromagnetic couplings. Thermal negativity as a measure of quantum entanglement of the mixed spin system is calculated. Different behavior for the negativity is obtained for the various values of Heisenberg dipolar and quadrupole couplings. The intermediate plateau of the negativity has been observed at the absence of the single-ion anisotropy and quadrupole interaction term. When dipolar and quadrupole couplings are equal there is a similar behavior of negativity and quadrupole moment.

  20. Light-by-light scattering and muon's anomalous magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    implications of these results for mesons in both the light-quark sector and the charm-quark sector. In the second part of this thesis we develop the formalism to provide an improved estimate for the hadronic light-by-light (HLbL) correction to the muon's anomalous magnetic moment aμ, by considering single meson contributions beyond the leading pseudo-scalar mesons. This is motivated by the present 3σ deviation between the measurement of aμ and its estimate in the Standard Model. Furthermore, a forthcoming new experiment at Fermilab aims to improve the experimental precision by a factor of 4 which also requires a similar theoretical improvement. We incorporate available experimental input as well as constraints from light-by-light scattering sum rules to estimate the effects of axial-vector, scalar, and tensor mesons. We give numerical evaluations for the HLbL contribution of these states to aμ. The presented formalism allows to further improve on these estimates, once new data for such meson states will become available. In the last part of this work, we present a new dispersion formalism developed for the HLbL contribution to aμ and test the formalism for the case of scalar field theory. The new framework opens a unique possibility for a consistent incorporation of data from e+e- colliders for single- as well as multi-meson contributions. Furthermore, it allows to systematically control the HLbL uncertainty in the aμ which is a crucial step in searches of new physics using this precision quantity.

    Magnetism of capped nanoparticles, NPs, of non-magnetic substances as Au and ZnO is briefly reviewed. The source of the magnetization is discussed on the light of recent X-ray magnetic circular dichroism experiments. As magnetic dichroism analysis has pointed out impurity atoms bonded to the surface act as donor or acceptor of electrons that occupy the surface states. It is proposed that mesoscopic collective orbital magnetic moments induced at the surface states can account for the experimental magnetism characteristic of these nanoparticles. The total magnetic moment of the surface originated at the unfilled Fermi level can reach values as large as 10{sup 2} or 10{sup 3} Bohr magnetons.

    We consider the anomalous magnetic moment from an 'optical viewpoint' using an analogy between the motion of a particle with a magnetic moment in a magnetic field and the propagation of an optical pulse through an electro-optical crystal in an electric field. We show that an optical experiment similar to electron magnetic resonance is possible in some electro-optical crystals possessing the Faraday effect. This phenomenon is described by an analogue of the Pauli equation extracted from the Maxwell equation in the slowly varied amplitude approximation. In such an experiment the modulation by rotating fields plays a significant role. From the optical viewpoint the modulation assumes introducing the concept of a point rotation frame with the rotation axis at every point originated from the concept of the optical indicatrix (index ellipsoid). We discuss the connection between the non-classical transformation by transition from one such frame to another and an anomalous magnetic moment.

    We present here a recopilation of recent results about the possibility of detecting solar electron antineutrinos produced by solar core and convective magnetic fields. These antineutrinos are predicted by spin-flavor oscillations at a significant rate even if this mechanism is not the leading solution to the SNP. Using the recent Kamland results and assuming a concrete model for antineutrino production by spin-flavor precession in the convective zone based on chaotic magnetic fields,we obtain bounds on the flux of solar antineutrinos, on the average conversion neutrino-antineutrino probability and on intrinsic neutrino magnetic moment. In the most conservative case, $\\mu\\lsim 2.5\\times 10^{-11} \\mu_B$ (95% CL). When studying the effects of a core magnetic field, we find in the weak limit a scaling of the antineutrino probability with respect to the magnetic field profile in the sense that the same probability function can be reproduced by any profile with a suitable peak field value. In this way the solar ele...

    We use solar neutrino data to derive stringent bounds on Majorana neutrino transition moments (TMs). Such moments, if present, would contribute to the neutrino-electron scattering cross section and hence alter the signal observed in Super-Kamiokande. Using the latest solar neutrino data, combined with the results of the reactor experiment KamLAND, we perform a simultaneous fit of the oscillation parameters and TMs. Furthermore, we include data from the reactor experiments Rovno, TEXONO and MUNU in our analysis, improving significantly the current constraints on TMs. A comparison with previous works shows that our bounds are the strongest and most general results presented up to now. Finally, we perform a simulation of the future Borexino experiment and show that it will improve the bounds from today's data by order of magnitude.

    We study electron-neutrino and electron-antineutrino signals from a supernova with strong magnetic field detected by a 100 kton liquid Ar detector. The change of neutrino flavors by resonant spin-flavor conversions, matter effects, and neutrino self-interactions are taken into account. Different neutrino signals, characterized by neutronization burst event and the total event numbers of electron-neutrinos and electron-antineutrinos, are expected with different neutrino oscillation parameters and neutrino magnetic moment. Observations of supernova neutrino signals by a 100 kton liquid Ar detector would constrain oscillation parameters as well as neutrino magnetic moment in either normal and inverted mass hierarchies.

    The quantum dynamics of a moving particle with a magnetic quadrupole moment that interacts with electric and magnetic fields is introduced. By dealing with the interaction between an electric field and the magnetic quadrupole moment, it is shown that an analogue of the Coulomb potential can be generated and bound state solutions can be obtained. Besides, the influence of the Coulomb-type potential on the harmonic oscillator is investigated, where bound state solutions to both repulsive and attractive Coulomb-type potentials are achieved and the arising of a quantum effect characterized by the dependence of the harmonic oscillator frequency on the quantum numbers of the system is discussed

    We examine the magnetic properties of the localized states induced by lattice vacancies in bilayer graphene with an unrestricted Hartree-Fock calculation. We show that, with realistic values of the parameters and for experimentally accessible gate voltages, we can have magnetic switching between an unpolarized and a fully polarized system.

  15. Gamma-ray halos as a measure of intergalactic magnetic fields: a classical moment problem

    CERN Document Server

    Ahlers, Markus

    2011-01-01

    The presence of weak intergalactic magnetic fields can be studied by their effect on electro-magnetic cascades induced by multi-TeV gamma-rays in the cosmic radiation background. Small deflections of secondary electrons and positrons as the cascade develops extend the apparent size of the emission region of distant TeV gamma-ray sources. These gamma-ray halos can be resolvable in imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes and serve as a measure of the intergalactic magnetic field strength and coherence length. We present a method of calculating the gamma-ray halo for isotropically emitting sources by treating magnetic deflections in the cascade as a diffusion process. With this ansatz the moments of the halo follow from a set of simple diffusion-cascade equations. The reconstruction of the angular distribution is then equivalent to a classical moment problem. We present a simple solution using Pade approximations of the moment's generating function.

  16. Majorana neutrino magnetic moment and neutrino decoupling in big bang nucleosynthesis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vassh, N.; Grohs, E.; Balantekin, A. B.; Fuller, G. M.

    2015-12-01

    We examine the physics of the early universe when Majorana neutrinos (νe, νμ, ντ) possess transition magnetic moments. These extra couplings beyond the usual weak interaction couplings alter the way neutrinos decouple from the plasma of electrons/positrons and photons. We calculate how transition magnetic moment couplings modify neutrino decoupling temperatures, and then use a full weak, strong, and electromagnetic reaction network to compute corresponding changes in big bang nucleosynthesis abundance yields. We find that light element abundances and other cosmological parameters are sensitive to magnetic couplings on the order of 1 0-10μB. Given the recent analysis of sub-MeV Borexino data which constrains Majorana moments to the order of 1 0-11μB or less, we find that changes in cosmological parameters from magnetic contributions to neutrino decoupling temperatures are below the level of upcoming precision observations.

    2015-06-15

    The role of particle size distribution inherently present in magnetic nanoparticles (NPs) is examined in considerable detail in relation to the measured magnetic properties of oleic acid-coated maghemite (γ-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}) NPs. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of the sol–gel synthesized γ-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} NPs showed a log-normal distribution of sizes with average diameter 〈D〉=7.04 nm and standard deviation σ=0.78 nm. Magnetization, M, vs. temperature (2–350 K) of the NPs was measured in an applied magnetic field H up to 90 kOe along with the temperature dependence of the ac susceptibilities, χ′ and χ″, at various frequencies, f{sub m}, from 10 Hz to 10 kHz. From the shift of the blocking temperature from T{sub B}=35 K at 10 Hz to T{sub B}=48 K at 10 kHz, the absence of any significant interparticle interaction is inferred and the relaxation frequency f{sub o}=2.6×10{sup 10} Hz and anisotropy constant K{sub a}=5.48×10{sup 5} erg/cm{sup 3} are determined. For TT{sub B}, the data of M vs. H up to 90 kOe at several temperatures are analyzed two different ways: (i) in terms of the modified Langevin function yielding an average magnetic moment per particle μ{sub p}=7300(500) μ{sub B}; and (ii) in terms of log-normal distribution of moments yielding 〈μ〉=6670 µ{sub B} at 150 K decreasing to 〈μ〉=6100 µ{sub B} at 300 K with standard deviations σ≃〈μ〉/2. It is argued that the above two approaches yield consistent and physically meaningful results as long as the width parameter, s, of the log-normal distribution is less than 0.83. - Highlights: • Magnetic properties of γ-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanoparticles, size=7.04(0.78)nm, are reported. • Attempt frequency f{sub o}=2.6×10{sup 10} Hz and no interparticle interactions are inferred. • M vs. H above T{sub B} analyzed using modified Langevin yields µ{sub p}≈7300 µ{sub B} per particle. • M vs. H above T

    By combining high photon flux and chemical selectivity, X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) have been used to study the magnetism of CoPt and FePt clusters before and after their transition to the chemically ordered L10-like phase. Compared to the bulk, we find larger magnetic spin and orbital moments of Fe, Co and Pt atoms in nanoalloys. - Highlights: • Study of magnetism on well-defined CoPt and FePt clusters embedded in carbon matrix • X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) at each specific Fe, Co and Pt edges, before and after annealing to induce transition to the chemically L10-like phase. • Quantitative values of the spin and orbital magnetic moments of Co (resp.

    The Dirac equation for charged and neutral fermions with anomalous magnetic moments is solved in a uniform magnetic field. We find the relativistic wave functions and energy spectra. In the non-relativistic limit the wave functions and energy spectra of charged fermions agree with the known solutions of the Schroedinger equation.

    We study vacuum polarization effects in the model of Dirac fermions with additional interaction of an anomalous magnetic moment with an external magnetic field and fermion interaction with an axial-vector condensate. The proper time method is used to calculate the one-loop vacuum corrections with consideration for different configurations of the characteristic parameters of these interactions.

  2. Unusual temperature dependence of the magnetic moment in URu2Si2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The influence of the sample quality on the magnetic properties of the heavy-fermion superconductor URu2Si2 has been studied by elastic neutron scattering. Two single crystals prepared under identical conditions received different heat treatments. The as-grown crystal shows an unusual temperature dependence of the magnetic Bragg peak intensity. The annealed sample behaves normally. The low-temperature magnetic moment is identical for the two samples, showing that the small moment of 0.023 (3) μB is intrinsic. By varying the instrumental resolution, we show that the ordered moment as well as the limited correlation length (200-400 A) are of static origin. The finite correlation length appears related to defects. (author). 9 refs., 1 fig

  3. Magnetic moment interactions in the e--e+ system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have studied the possible existence of quasibound states of an electron-positron pair due to their magnetic interaction in the framework of the equations suggested by Barut et al. We derive radial equations for all angular quantum numbers of the e--e+ system and show, in detail, that Barut's equations does not give a consistent, physically satisfactory description of positronium, except in the non-relativistic approximation (up to terms of order m α2). Moreover, we do not find evidence that the effective potentials occurring in the radial equations support magnetic resonances of the e--e+ system at short particle distances ('micropositronium').

    The spin-magnetic moment of the proton $\\mu_p$ is a fundamental property of this particle. So far $\\mu_p$ has only been measured indirectly, analysing the spectrum of an atomic hydrogen maser in a magnetic field. Here, we report the direct high-precision measurement of the magnetic moment of a single proton using the double Penning-trap technique. We drive proton-spin quantum jumps by a magnetic radio-frequency field in a Penning trap with a homogeneous magnetic field. The induced spin-transitions are detected in a second trap with a strong superimposed magnetic inhomogeneity. This enables the measurement of the spin-flip probability as a function of the drive frequency. In each measurement the proton's cyclotron frequency is used to determine the magnetic field of the trap. From the normalized resonance curve, we extract the particle's magnetic moment in units of the nuclear magneton $\\mu_p=2.792847350(9)\\mu_N$. This measurement outperforms previous Penning trap measurements in terms of precision by a factor...

    Highlights: • The ions co-implantation induced some new Raman phonon modes. • All the samples were confirmed to be ferromagnetic at room temperature. • The colossal magnetic moment may be induced by the 3d–4f coupling. • Electrons are more effective than holes in facilitating the magnetic coupling. • Cr and Er ions play a complementary role in determining the magnetic anisotropy. - Abstract: Colossal magnetic moment up to 16.05 μ{sub B}/atom was found in GaN based diluted magnetic semiconductor films, which were fabricated by co-implantation with Cr and Er ions, followed by 800 °C annealing process. No secondary phase was detected in our samples within the detection limit of the high resolution X-ray diffractometer. Several new Raman peaks around 300, 360, 663 and 858 cm{sup −1} are observed in the implanted and annealed samples, which have been explained reasonably. The colossal magnetic moment may come from the 3d–4f coupling between Cr and Er ions and/or the interaction between bound magnetic polarons formed in our samples, which can be facilitated by higher electron concentration. Cr and Er ions play a complementary role in determining the magnetic anisotropy.

    2013-01-01

    We studied the ionization of hydrogen by scattering of neutrino magnetic moment, relativistic muon, and weakly-interacting massive particle with a QED-like interaction. Analytic results were obtained and compared with several approximation schemes often used in atomic physics. As current searches for neutrino magnetic moment and dark matter have lowered the detector threshold down to the sub-keV regime, we tried to deduce from this simple case study the influence of atomic structure on the the cross sections and the applicabilities of various approximations. The general features being found will be useful for cases where practical detector atoms are considered.

In all cases the neutrinos or antineutrinos are detected by scattering of electrons. We find that a large (20 MCurie) tritium source could improve the limit on the neutrino magnetic moment significantly, down to the level of a few $\\times 10^{-12}$ while low-energy beta-beams with sufficiently rapid production of ions could improve the li...

  9. Two Models Relevant to the Interaction of a Point Charge and a Magnetic Moment

    CERN Document Server

    Boyer, Timothy H

    2012-01-01

    An understanding of the interaction of a point charge and a magnetic moment is crucial for understanding the experiments involving electromagnetic momentum carried by permeable materials as well as the experimentally-observed Aharonov-Bohm and Aharonov-Casher phase shifts. Here we present two simple models for a magnetic moment which have vastly different interactions with a distant point charge. It is suggested that a satisfactory theoretical understanding of the interaction is still lacking and that the "hidden momentum" interpretation has been introduced into the textbook literature prematurely.

We have also analysed the moments of the spectrum of scattered electrons at SK. Another new feature in the analysis is that for the global analysis, we have replaced the spectrum by its centroid.

    We study the introduction of the internal dynamical variables for consituent quarks. These variables are related to the center-of-mass of a nucleon. The problem is connected with the description of spinorial properties of the quarks. The spinors must be artificially introduced in a harmonic oscillator (HO) model. Experimental values of the magnetic moment and the axial-vector coupling constant of a nucleon can be easily reproduced. The theoretical results are not sensitive to the theoretical details; they follow from the general properties of the quark structure of baryons. The connections with the relativistic HO models are also discussed. The case of a very small confinement radius is explored in the Appendix.

    We present determinations of the magnetic structures of NdNi2B2C and SmNi2B2C by means of x-ray resonant exchange scattering (XRES). The integrated intensity of a number of magnetic reflections was measured as a function of the Bragg angle and compared to model calculations for various magnetic structures. The two compounds were found to have the same magnetic modulation wave vector but different moment directions. A resonant feature observed below the Sm L3-absorption edge, similar to unexplained effects found in other light rare-earth compounds, is identified as quadrupolar XRES and is used to refine the details of the moment direction. copyright 1997 The American Physical Society

    An intracavity CO laser magnetic resonance spectrometer with homogeneous dc electric field applied via a pairof parallel Stark plates in the absorption cell is used to measure the electric dipole moments of free radicals.Taking advantage of the high sensitivity and high resolution of this technique and the Stark effect, highlyresolved saturated absorption spectra of the ν = 1 - 0 transition of 15 N16 O in the ground state X2 П3/2 have beensuccessfully observed in the presence of a low electric field. The electric dipole moment of NO in the electronicground state is determined asμ = 0.1566 ± 14D (Debye) from the analysis of the observed spectra, confirmingthat, combined with the Stark field, the laser magnetic resonance technique can be an effective and reliableapproach for the precise measurement of electric dipole moments of free radicals, especially unstable ones.

    The first investigation of a YBaCuO compound by polarised neutron diffraction (p.n.d.) on a YBa2Cu3O6.5 single crystal, has revealed the existence of a small magnetic moment on Cu(1). We report here on new p.n.d. results on a x = 6.4 single crystal. The magnetisation density demonstrates an induced magnetic moment on Cu(1), m = 0.02 μB slightly larger than for x = 6.5, in the same conditions of temperature and field (T = 1.7 K, H = 5 T). The temperature and field dependence of the induced moment are discussed in connection with a model of antiferromagnetically coupled spins on Cu(1)

This is carried out by introducing progressively small static magnetic field on the lattice and measuring the linear response of a hadron's mass shift.

    1994-11-01

    The local magnetic moment {mu} and hyperfine field B{sub hf} at Fe and V sites in hydrogenated iron and iron-vanadium were calculated using the discrete variational method. The variations in {mu} and B{sub hf} with H occupation of the octahedral (O) site were considered. It was found that when H occupies the O site neighbouring an Fe atom, both local moment and hyperfine field at this atom decrease linearly with increasing number of H atoms. The rate of decrease is larger for Fe in iron as compared to iron in vanadium. On the other hand, when H resides at an O site next neighbouring an Fe atom, whether in iron metal or in iron-vanadium, the Fe magnetic moment increases slowly, while the hyperfine field remains almost constant. The V moment in iron, which is negative ({approx} -0.83 {mu}{sub B}), becomes less negative ({approx} -0.30 {mu}{sub B}) as H occupies the neighboring O sites, whereas slight changes occur ({approx} -0.88 {mu}{sub B}) when H is at the next neighbouring O site. The net effect of H on Fe in iron is to decrease the average magnetic moment at a rate of {approx} 1.2 {mu}{sub B} per H/Fe for low H content. On the other hand, the average Fe moment in an iron-vanadium alloy increases if H resides at O sites which are immediate neigbours of V and next neighbours of Fe. This may explain the development of a magnetic state on hydrogenation of Fe-V alloys, which is exhibited by the specific heat and susceptibility measurements. The changes in the isomer shift were found to agree with experimental trends. (orig.)

    We use the Higgs coupling and the muon anomalous magnetic moment measurements to constrain the parameter space of the natural supersymmetry (SUSY) in the Generalized Minimal Supergravity (GmSUGRA) model. We scan the parameter space of the GmSUGRA model with small electroweak fine-tuning measure ($\\Delta_{\\rm EW} \\leq 100$). The parameter space after applying various sparticle mass bounds, Higgs mass bounds, B-physics bounds, the muon magnetic moment constraint, and the Higgs coupling constraint from measurements at HL-LHC, ILC, and CEPC, is shown in the planes of various interesting model parameters and sparticle masses. Our study indicates that the Higgs coupling and muon anomalous magnetic moment measurements can constrain the parameter space effectively. It is shown that $\\Delta_{\\rm EW}\\sim$ 30, consistence with all constraints, and having supersymmetric contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment within 1$\\sigma$ can be achieved.

    The current denstity generated by electrons in Russell-Saunders states within an l^n manifold comprises only even-parity multipoles: 'magnetic' dipoles, octopoles, etc. (L=1,3,...) and 'electric' quadrupoles, etc. (L=2,4,...). If inversion symmetry is broken, e.g., by an odd-parity order parameter, and hybridization between states of different parity becomes possible, odd-parity terms also emerge in the multipole expansion of the magnetic field. The L=1 'electric' term describes the field of toroidal currents, which can be modeled by a solenoid bent in a circle. The magnetic neutron scattering amplitude due to such toroidal currents (or, equivalently, ring-shaped magnetization patterns), has a distinct angular dependence on the scattering vector q. If data covering a sufficient variety of q vectors and neutron-spin orientations are available, magnetic and toroidal moments can be distinguished unambiguously. However, it can be shown that within a limited set of data, notably within a plane in q space, which contains the magnetic dipole moment that enables a satisfactory interpretation, a toroid moment can be found, which gives an equally satisfactory result. The possible relevance of this finding to the order parameter in URu2Si2 will be discussed.

  10. CeRh3B2: A ferromagnet with anomalously large Ce 5d spin and orbital magnetic moments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We report a high-energy magnetic-Compton-scattering study performed on the ferromagnet CeRh3B2. This technique solely measures the electron spin magnetic moments. In contrast to a number of Ce intermetallics with nonmagnetic elements, the Ce 5d spin moment is found to be large and parallel to the Ce 4f spin moment. Therefore the Kondo effect does not play a key role for CeRh3B2. The inferred large Ce 5d orbital magnetic moment is a signature of the strong spin-orbit interaction for the Ce 5d band. copyright 1998 The American Physical Society

    Ferromagnetism is investigated in high-quality Cu-doped AlN single crystal whiskers. The whiskers exhibit room-temperature ferromagnetism with a magnetic moment close to the results from first-principles calculations. High crys-tallinity and low Cu concentrations are found to be indispensable for high magnetic moments. The difference between the experimental and theoretical moment values is explored in terms of the infl uence of nitrogen vacancies. The calculated results demonstrate that nitrogen vacancies can reduce the magnetic moments of Cu atom.

  12. Electromagnetic Currents and Magnetic Moments in $\\chi$EFT

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2009-09-01

    A two-nucleon potential and consistent electromagnetic currents are derived in chiral effective field theory ($\\chi$EFT) at, respectively, $Q^{\\, 2}$ (or N$^2$LO) and $e\\, Q$ (or N$^3$LO), where $Q$ generically denotes the low-momentum scale and $e$ is the electric charge. Dimensional regularization is used to renormalize the pion-loop corrections. A simple expression is derived for the magnetic dipole ($M1$) operator associated with pion loops, consisting of two terms, one of which is determined, uniquely, by the isospin-dependent part of the two-pion-exchange potential. This decomposition is also carried out for the $M1$ operator arising from contact currents, in which the unique term is determined by the contact potential. Finally, the low-energy constants (LEC's) entering the N$^2$LO potential are fixed by fits to the $np$ S- and P-wave phase shifts up to 100 MeV lab energies. Three additional LEC's are needed to completely specify the $M1$ operator at N$^3$L

    We use the Higgs coupling and the muon anomalous magnetic moment measurements to constrain the parameter space of the natural supersymmetry in the generalized minimal supergravity (GmSUGRA) model. We scan the parameter space of the GmSUGRA model with small electroweak fine-tuning measure (ΔEW≤100 ). The parameter space after applying various sparticle mass bounds; Higgs mass bounds; B-physics bounds; the muon magnetic moment constraint; and the Higgs coupling constraint from measurements at HL-LHC, ILC, and CEPC is shown in the planes of various interesting model parameters and sparticle masses. Our study indicates that the Higgs coupling and muon anomalous magnetic moment measurements can constrain the parameter space effectively. It is shown that ΔEW˜30 , consistent with all constraints, and having supersymmetric contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment within 1 σ can be achieved. The precision of kb and kτ measurements at CEPC can bound mA to be above 1.2 TeV and 1.1 TeV respectively. The combination of the Higgs coupling measurement and muon anomalous magnetic moment measurement constrain the e˜R mass to be in the range from 0.6 TeV to 2 TeV. The range of both e˜L and ν˜e masses is 0.4 TeV-1.2 TeV. In all cases, the χ˜10 mass needs to be small (mostly ≤400 GeV ). The comparison of bounds in the tan β -mA plane shows that the Higgs coupling measurement is complementary to the direct collider searches for heavy Higgs when constraining the natural SUSY. A few mass spectra in the typical region of parameter space after applying all constraints are shown as well.

    We present results from the QCDSF/UKQCD collaboration for hyperon electromagnetic form factors and axial charges obtained from simulations using N{sub f}=2+1 flavours of O(a)-improved Wilson fermions. We also consider matrix elements relevant for hyperon semileptonic decays. We find flavour-breaking effects in hyperon magnetic moments which are consistent with experiment, while our results for the connected quark spin content indicates that quarks contribute more to the spin of the {Xi} baryon than they do to the proton.

  17. Heavy baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We review the experimental and theoretical status of baryons containing one heavy quark. The charm and bottom baryon states are classified and their mass spectra are listed. The appropriate theoretical framework for the description of heavy baryons is the Heavy Quark Effective Theory, whose general ideas and methods are introduced and illustrated in specific examples. We present simple covariant expressions for the spin wave functions of heavy baryons including p-wave baryons. The covariant spin wave functions are used to determine the Heavy Quark Symmetry structure of flavour-changing current-induced transitions between heavy baryons as well as one-pion and one-photon transitions between heavy baryons of the same flavour. We discuss 1/mQ corrections to the current-induced transitions as well as the structure of heavy to light baryon transitions. Whenever possible we attempt to present numbers to compare with experiment by making use of further model-dependent assumptions as e.g. the constituent picture for light quarks. We highlight recent advances in the theoretical understanding of the inclusive decays of hadrons containing one heavy quark including polarization. For exclusive semileptonic decays we discuss rates, angular decay distributions and polarization effects. We provide an update of the experimental and theoretical status of lifetimes of heavy baryons and of exclusive nonleptonic two body decays of charm baryons. (orig.)

    1999-01-01

    The scattering of solar neutrinos on electrons is sensitive to the neutrino magnetic moments through an interference of electromagnetic and weak amplitudes in the cross section. We show that future low-energy solar neutrino experiments with good angular resolution can be sensitive to the resulting azimuthal asymmetries in event number and should provide useful information on non-standard neutrino properties such as magnetic moments. We compare asymmetries expected at HELLAZ (mainly pp neutrinos) with those at the Kamiokande and Super-Kamiokande experiments (Boron neutrinos), both for the case of Dirac and Majorana neutrinos and discuss the advantages of low energies. Potentially interesting information on the solar magnetic fields may be accessible

  19. Moment Approach to Deriving a Unified Parallel Viscous Stress in Magnetized Plasmas

    Ji, Jeong-Young; Held, Eric D.

    2009-06-01

    In the moment approach, a parallel heat flux and a viscous stress are derived for arbitrary collisionality, which is becoming increasingly important in emerging concept devices. This derivation improves upon previous derivations by using the full linearized collision operators instead of the pitch-angle scattering operator and also by including the ion-electron collision operator. The parallel viscous stress can be computed by integrating thermodynamic drives along a magnetic field line weighted by kernel functions that are simple linear combinations of exponential functions. The convergence of the ion viscous stress is verified for sinusoidally varying drives with increasing number of moments.

    In this thesis, experimental results on the ground state nuclear magnetic moments of europium and gadolinium isotopes are presented. The nuclear orientation experiments were performed on europium and gadolinium nuclei embedded in several host lattices. Attention is paid to the hyperfine interactions of the ions. Nuclear moments are discussed in the context of nuclear shell model. The theoretical framework is described for nuclear structure and low temperature nuclear orientation. Furthermore, the experimental techniques, the technical arrangement of the orientation apparatus, the methods for radiative detection and the use of nuclear orientation thermometry are described.

  1. Decoherence-governed magnetic-moment dynamics of supported atomic objects

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Due to the quantum evolution of molecular magnetic moments, the magnetic state of nanomagnets can suffer spontaneous changes. This process can be completely quenched by environment-induced decoherence. However, we show that for typical small supported atomic objects, the substrate-induced decoherence does change the magnetic-moment evolution but does not quell it. To be specific and to compare with experiment, we analyze the spontaneous switching between two equivalent magnetization states of atomic structures formed by Fe on Cu2N/Cu (1 0 0), measured by Loth et al (2012 Science 335 196–9). Due to the substrate-induced decoherence, the Rabi oscillations proper to quantum tunneling between magnetic states are replaced by an irreversible decay of long characteristic times leading to the observed stochastic magnetization switching. We show that the corresponding switching rates are small, rapidly decreasing with system’s size, with a 1/T thermal behavior and in good agreement with experiments. Quantum tunneling is recovered as the switching mechanism at extremely low temperatures below the μK range for a six-Fe-atom system and exponentially lower for larger atomic systems. The unexpected conclusion of this work is that experiments could detect the switching of these supported atomic systems because their magnetization evolution is somewhere between complete decoherence-induced stability and unobservably fast quantum-tunneling switching.

  3. Interaction and local magnetic moments of metal phthalocyanine and tetraphenylporphyrin molecules on noble metal surfaces

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order to understand the Kondo effect observed in molecular systems, first-principles calculations have been widely used to predict the ground state properties of molecules on metal substrates. In this work, the interaction and the local magnetic moments of magnetic molecules (3d-metal phthalocyanine and tetraphenylporphyrin molecules) on noble metal surfaces are investigated based on the density functional theory. The calculation results show that the dz2 orbital of the transition metal atom of the molecule plays a dominant role in the molecule—surface interaction and the adsorption energy exhibits a simple declining trend as the adsorption distance increases. In addition, the Au(111) surface generally has a weak interaction with the adsorbed molecule compared with the Cu(111) surface and thus serves as a better candidate substrate for studying the Kondo effect. The relation between the local magnetic moment and the Coulomb interaction U is examined by carrying out the GGA+U calculation according to Dudarev's scheme. We find that the Coulomb interaction is essential for estimating the local magnetic moment in molecule—surface systems, and we suggest that the reference values of parameter U are 2 eV for Fe and 2–3 eV for Co.

    In this article we review the exotic magnetism of nanoparticles (NPs) formed by substances that are not magnetic in bulk as described with generality in Section 1. In particular, the intrinsic character of the magnetism observed on capped Au and ZnO NPs is analysed. X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) analysis has shown that the magnetic moments are intrinsic and lie in the Au and Zn atoms, respectively, as analysed in Section 2, where the general theoretical ideas are also revisited. Since impurity atoms bonded to the surface act as donor or acceptor of electrons that occupy the surface states, the anomalous magnetic response is analysed in terms of the surface band in Section 3. Finally, Section 4 summarizes our last theoretical proposal. (Copyright copyright 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim)

    We studied L1(0) ordered Fe50Pt50-xNdx alloy films, which showed a large enhancement (similar to 18.4% at room temperature and similar to 11.7% at 10 K) of magnetic moment with 6 atomic % of Nd. Analysis of the x-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectra at the Fe L-3,L-2 edges and Nd M-5,M-4 edges in Fe50Pt44Nd6 films indicated a significant contribution of the Nd orbital moment. The origin of the large enhancement of magnetic moment was attributed to the effect of ferromagnetic coupling of the total magnetic moments between Fe and Nd. Density functional theory based first principles calculations supported the experimental observations of increasing moment due to Nd substitution of Pt.

  6. Magnetic moments in a helical edge can make weak correlations seem strong

    2016-06-01

    We study the effect of localized magnetic moments on the conductance of a helical edge. Interaction with a local moment is an effective backscattering mechanism for the edge electrons. We evaluate the resulting differential conductance as a function of temperature T and applied bias V for any value of V /T . Backscattering off magnetic moments, combined with the weak repulsion between the edge electrons, results in a power-law temperature and voltage dependence of the conductance; the corresponding small positive exponent is indicative of insulating behavior. Local moments may naturally appear due to charge disorder in a narrow-gap semiconductor. Our results provide an alternative interpretation of the recent experiment by Li et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 136804 (2015)], 10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.136804 where a power-law suppression of the conductance was attributed to strong electron repulsion within the edge, with the value of Luttinger-liquid parameter K fine tuned close to 1 /4 .

  7. Temperature dependent electronic structure and magnetism of metallic systems with localized moments. Application on gadolinium

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis focuses on the theoretical investigation of the temperature dependent electronic and magnetic properties of metallic 4f-systems with localized magnetic moments. The presented theory is based on the Kondo-lattice model, which describes the interaction between a system of 4f-localized magnetic moments and the itinerant conduction band electrons. This interaction is responsible for a remarkable temperature dependence of the electronic structure mainly induced by the subsystem of 4f-localized moments. The many-body problem provoked by the Kondo-lattice model is solved by using a moment conserving Green function technique, which takes care of several special limiting cases. This method reproduces the T=0-exact solvable limiting case of the ferromagnetically saturated semiconductor. The temperature dependent magnetic properties of the 4f-localized subsystem are evaluated by means of a modified Rudermann-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY) type procedure, which together with the solution of the electronic part allows for a self-consistent calculation of all the electronic and magnetic properties of the model. Results of model calculations allow to deduce the conditions for ferromagnetism in dependence of the electron density n, exchange coupling J and temperature T. The self-consistently calculated Curie temperature TC is presented and discussed in dependence of relevant parameters (J, n, and W) of the model. The second part of the thesis is concerned with the investigation of the temperature dependence of the electronic and magnetic properties of the rare-earth metal Gadolinium (Gd). The original Kondo-lattice model is extended to a multi-band Kondo-lattice model and combined with an ab-initio band structure calculation to take into account for the multi-bands in real systems. The single-particle energies of the model are taken from an augmented spherical wave (ASW) band structure calculation. The proposed method avoids the double counting of relevant interactions by

    Correlated band theory is employed to investigate the magnetic and electronic properties of different arrangements of oxygen di- and tri-vacancy clusters in SrTiO{sub 3}. Hole and electron doping of oxygen deficient SrTiO{sub 3} yields various degrees of magnetization as a result of the interaction between localized magnetic moments at the defect sites. Different kinds of Ti atomic orbital hybridization are described as a function of the doping level and defect geometry. We find that magnetism in SrTiO{sub 3−δ} is sensitive to the arrangement of neighbouring vacancy sites, charge carrier density, and vacancy-vacancy interaction. Permanent magnetic moments in the absence of vacancy doping electrons are observed. Our description of the charged clusters of oxygen vacancies widens the previous descriptions of mono- and multi-vacancies and points out the importance of the controlled formation at the atomic level of defects for the realization of transition metal oxide based devices with a desirable magnetic performance.

    2015-12-01

    The arising of geometric quantum phases in the wave function of a moving particle possessing a magnetic quadrupole moment is investigated. It is shown that an Aharonov-Anandan quantum phase (Aharonov and Anandan, 1987) can be obtained in the quantum dynamics of a moving particle with a magnetic quadrupole moment. In particular, it is obtained as an analogue of the scalar Aharonov-Bohm effect for a neutral particle (Anandan, 1989). Besides, by confining the quantum particle to a hard-wall confining potential, the dependence of the energy levels on the geometric quantum phase is discussed and, as a consequence, persistent currents can arise from this dependence. Finally, an analogue of the Landau quantization is discussed.

    Magnetic dipole moment and mean-square charge radius of $^{199}$Pt ($I^{\\pi}=$ 5/2$^-$) have been evaluated for the first time from the investigation of the hyperfine splitting of the $\\lambda_1=$ 248.792 nm transition by in-gas-cell laser ionization spectroscopy. Neutron-rich nucleus $^{199}$Pt was produced by multi-nucleon transfer reaction at the KISS where the nuclear spectroscopy in the vicinity of $N=$ 126 is planed from the aspect of an astrophysical interest as well as the nuclear structure. Measured magnetic dipole moment $+$0.63(13)$\\mu_{\\rm N}$ is consistent with the systematics of those of nuclei with $I^{\\pi}=$ 5/2$^-$. The deformation parameter $|^{1/2}|$ evaluated from the isotope shift indicates the gradual shape change to spherical shape of platinum isotopes with increasing neutron number toward $N=$ 126.

    We compare the prospects for detecting a neutrino magnetic moment by the measurement of neutrinos from a tritium source, reactors and low-energy beta-beams. In all cases the neutrinos or antineutrinos are detected by scattering of electrons. We find that a large (20 MCurie) tritium source could improve the limit on the neutrino magnetic moment significantly, down to the level of a few $\\times 10^{-12}$ while low-energy beta-beams with sufficiently rapid production of ions could improve the limits to the level of a few $\\times 10^{-11}$. The latter would require ion production at the rate of at least $10^{15}$ s$^{-1}$.

    In the framework of a two Higgs doublet model of type I, II and III and a neutrino specific scenario, we calculate the magnetic dipole moment for the different types of neutrino, and compare it with the experimental bounds of their magnetic dipole moments. This is carried out by analyzing diagrams of Cherenkov neutrino decays with a charged Higgs into the loop. The analysis was performed by sweeping the charged Higgs mass and taking into account the experimental constraints for relevant parameters in these 2HDMs; obtaining contributions close to the experimental thresholds for tau neutrinos in the type II case and the neutrino specific scenario above the contribution of standard model, while for electron and muon neutrino the relevant contribution should come from the SM and neutrino specific scenario but keeps out of the reach of forthcoming experiments.

    In this work, disordered-IrMn3/insulating-Y3Fe5O12 exchange-biased bilayers are studied. The behavior of the net magnetic moment ΔmAFM in the antiferromagnet is directly probed by anomalous and planar Hall effects, and anisotropic magnetoresistance. The ΔmAFM is proved to come from the interfacial uncompensated magnetic moment. We demonstrate that the exchange bias and rotational hysteresis loss are induced by partial rotation and irreversible switching of the ΔmAFM. In the athermal training effect, the state of the ΔmAFM cannot be recovered after one cycle of hysteresis loop. This work highlights the fundamental role of the ΔmAFM in the exchange bias and facilitates the manipulation of antiferromagnetic spintronic devices.

The lifetime of the latter state was determined simultaneously. A special detection geometry was designed to improve the experimental γ-ray anisotropy measured with finite-size detectors. For 20Ne also a time-integral measurement with charge-state separation was performed. The necessary electronics circuitry built to perform these complicated measurements and the plunger assembly with laser interferometer are also described. A magnetic moment measurement of 22Ne(21+) with tau=5.0 ps and transient field measurements at low and high recoil velocities are reported. A discussion of possible extensions of the techniques are given. (Auth.)

    We investigate finite-volume effects in the hadronic vacuum polarization, with an eye toward the corresponding systematic error in the muon anomalous magnetic moment. We consider both recent lattice data as well as lowest-order, finite-volume chiral perturbation theory, in order to get a quantitative understanding. Even though leading-order chiral perturbation theory does not provide a good description of the hadronic vacuum polarization, it turns out that it gives a good representation of finite-volume effects. We find that finite-volume effects cannot be ignored when the aim is a few percent level accuracy for the leading-order hadronic contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, even when using ensembles with mπL ≳4 and mπ˜200 MeV .

  1. Bounds on radii and magnetic dipole moments of quarks and leptons from LEP, SLC and HERA

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Leptons, quarks and gauge bosons are assumed to be pointlike particles in the Standard Model. Stringent bounds on the radii of quarks and leptons and their weak anomalous magnetic moments can be derived from the high-precision measurements at LEP and SLC. We find a model-independent bound of R-17 cm for quark and lepton radii. HERA will provide complementary information on the electromagnetic static properties of the quarks and the parameters of the charged quark currents. (orig.)

  2. The spin and the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron in stochastic electrodynamics

    It is proposed that the zitterbewegung induced on a harmonically bound electron by the zero-point radiation field accounts for the spin of the electron. Assuming that the measurement of a spin projection may be taken into account phenomenologically by considering the action of only the subensemble of the zero-point field with the corresponding circular polarization, the theory gives a satisfactory account of both the spin projection and the anomalous magnetic moment.

A 51, 2611 (1995)], the Landau quantization associated with an atom with a magnetic quadrupole moment is introduced, and then, rotating effects on this analogue of the Landau quantization is investigated. It is shown that rotating effects can modify the cyclotron frequency and breaks the degeneracy of the analogue of the Landau levels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An N=1-supersymmetric version of the Cremmer-Scherk-Kalb-Ramond model with non-minimal coupling to matter is built up both in terms of superfields and in a component field formalism. By adopting a dimensional reduction procedure, the N=2-D=3 counterpart of the model comes out, with two main features: a genuine (diagonal) Chern-Simons term and an anomalous magnetic moment coupling between matter and the gauge potential.

  8. Magnetic moments in present relativistic nuclear theories: a mean-field problem

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We show that the magnetic moments of LS closed shell nuclei plus or minus one nucleon derived from non-relativistic Hartree-Fock mean-fields are as bad as those obtained in relativistic approaches of nuclear structure. Deviations with respect to more complete results in both cases are ascribed to the mean-field approximation which neglects some degrees of freedom in the nucleus description. 18 refs

  10. Nuclear magnetic moments and the spin-orbit current in the relativistic mean field theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Dirac magnetic moments in the relativistic mean field theory are affected not only by the effective mass, but also by the spin-orbit current related to the spin-orbit force through the continuity equation. Previous arguments on the cancellation of the effective-mass effect in nuclear matter are not simply applied to finite nuclei to obtain the Schmidt values. Effects of the spin-orbit current on (e, e') response functions are also mentioned. (orig.)

  11. Precise determination of the magnetic moment of helium in its 23S1 metastable state

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The electronic magnetic moment of helium was measured by the atomic beam magnetic resonance method using separated oscillating fields. Actually, the magnetic moment of helium relative to that of rubidium was measured. The result was combined with the ratio g/sub J/(Rb)/g/sub J/(H) to get R = g/sub J/(He, 23S1)/g/sub J/(H,2S/sub 1/2/) = 1 - (23.19 +- 0.1) x 10-6. The motivation for this Zeeman measurement was to provide as sensitive a test of the theory of atomic magnetism for a multielectron atom as possible. In particular, the experiment provides a test of the relativistic corrections to the Zeeman effect. The experiment also tests the additivity of the radiative corrections to the magnetic moments of the two electrons. Another motivation concerns the determination of the fine structure constant α from measurements of the 23P fine structure intervals of 4He; namely, the understanding of the 23S states contributes to the knowledge of the theoretical expressions for the 23P intervals. For the chosen magnetic field of 9.5 kG, the helium resonance frequency was 26.8 GHz, the rubidium frequency, 26.4 GHz. The linewidth associated with the microwave double loop was 25 KHz. Thus it was necessary to pick the resonance line centers to only 1 part in 10 to achieve a 0.1 ppM accuracy. This result is in excellent agreement with the latest theoretical value, R = 1 - 23.21 x 10-6; and with earlier, less precise atomic beam measurements; and with the latest, comparably accurate optical pumping value. Many possible sources of error were investigated. The quoted error is based on analysis of residual systematic effects

    We have synthesized transparent, conducting, paramagnetic stannate thin films via rare-earth doping of BaSnO3. Gd3+ (4f7) substitution on the Ba2+ site results in optical transparency in the visible regime, low resistivities, and high electron mobilities, along with a significant magnetic moment. Pulsed laser deposition was used to stabilize epitaxial Ba0.96Gd0.04SnO3 thin films on (001) SrTiO3 substrates, and compared with Ba0.96La0.04SnO3 and undoped BaSnO3 thin films. Gd as well as La doping schemes result in electron mobilities at room temperature that exceed those of conventional complex oxides, with values as high as 60 cm2/V.s (n = 2.5 × 1020 cm-3) and 30 cm2/V.s (n = 1 × 1020 cm-3) for La and Gd doping, respectively. The resistivity shows little temperature dependence across a broad temperature range, indicating that in both types of films the transport is not dominated by phonon scattering. Gd-doped BaSnO3 films have a strong magnetic moment of ˜7 μB/Gd ion. Such an optically transparent conductor with localized magnetic moments may unlock opportunities for multifunctional devices in the design of next-generation displays and photovoltaics.

    Crystal symmetry governs the nature of electronic Bloch states. For example, in the presence of time-reversal symmetry, the orbital magnetic moment and Berry curvature of the Bloch states must vanish unless inversion symmetry is broken1. In certain two-dimensional electron systems such as bilayer graphene, the intrinsic inversion symmetry can be broken simply by applying a perpendicular electric field2,3. In principle, this offers the possibility of switching on/off and continuously tuning the magnetic moment and Berry curvature near the Dirac valleys by reversible electrical control4,5. Here we investigate this possibility using polarization-resolved photoluminescence of bilayer MoS2, which has the same symmetry as bilayer graphene but has a bandgap in the visible spectrum6,7 allowing direct optical probing5,8 12. We find that in bilayer MoS2 the circularly polarized photoluminescence can be continuously tuned from 15% to 15% as a function of gate voltage, whereas in structurally non-centrosymmetric monolayer MoS2 the photoluminescence polarization is gate independent. The observations are well explained as resulting from the continuous variation of orbital magnetic moments between positive and negative values through symmetry control.

  15. Self-organization of magnetic moments in dipolar chains with restricted degrees of freedom

    Pshenichnikov, Alexander F.; Kuznetsov, Andrey A.

    2015-10-01

    Equilibrium behavior of a single chain of dipolar spheres is investigated by the method of molecular dynamics in a wide range of the dipolar coupling constant λ . Two cases are considered: rodlike and flexible chains. In the first case, particle centers are immovably fixed on one axis, but their magnetic moments retain absolute orientational freedom. It has been found that at λ ≳1.5 particle moments are chiefly aligned parallel to the chain axis, but the total moment of the chain continuously changes its sign with some mean frequency, which exponentially decreases with the growth of λ . Such behavior of the rodlike chain is analogous to the Néel relaxation of a superparamagnetic particle with a finite energy of magnetic anisotropy. In the flexible chain particles are able to move in the three-dimensional space, but the distance between centers of the first-nearest neighbors never exceeds a given limiting value rmax. If rmax≃d (d is the particle diameter) then the most probable shape of the chain of five or more particles at λ ≳6 is that of a ring. The behavior of chains with rmax≥2 d is qualitatively different: At λ ≃4 long chains collapse into dense quasispherical globules and at λ ≳8 these globules take toroidal configuration with a spontaneous azimuthal ordering of magnetic dipoles. With the increase of rmax to larger values (rmax>10 d ) globules expand and break down to form separate rings.

    The hadronic leading-order (hlo) contribution to the lepton anomalous magnetic moments alhlo of the Standard Model leptons still accounts for the dominant source of the uncertainty of the Standard Model estimates. We present the results of an investigation of the hadronic leading order anomalous magnetic moments of the electron, muon and tau lepton from first principles in twisted mass lattice QCD. With lattice data for multiple pion masses in the range 230MeV ≲ mPS ≲ 490 MeV, multiple lattice volumes and three lattice spacings we perform the extrapolation to the continuum and to the physical pion mass and check for all systematic uncertainties in the lattice calculation. As a result we calculate alhlo for the three Standard Model leptons with controlled statistical and systematic error in agreement with phenomenological determinations using dispersion relations and experimental data. In addition, we also give a first estimate of the hadronic leading order anomalous magnetic moments from simulations directly at the physical value of the pion mass.

  17. Magnetic moment of square Josephson SIS nets. Self-organized criticality

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The dependences of the magnetic moment of the square Josephson nets with the SIS-type transitions on the magnetic field and temperature are experimentally studied. Two temperature areas with different character of the magnetization curves were observed. The magnetic flux avalanches were identified in the low-temperature area. The statistic analysis of the avalanches A amplitudes showed that their distribution by sizes changes by the stepwise law, P∝An with the crossover, when the degree indicator n changes from n=-0.7 by small sizes of the avalanches up to n=-6 by their large sizes, and the frequency spectrum - by the 1/fα law. Such a behaviour is interpreted as the manifestation of the self-organized criticality

  18. Lifting particle coordinate changes of magnetic moment type to Vlasov-Maxwell Hamiltonian dynamics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Techniques for coordinate changes that depend on both dependent and independent variables are developed and applied to the Maxwell-Vlasov Hamiltonian theory. Particle coordinate changes with a new velocity variable dependent on the magnetic field, with spatial coordinates unchanged, are lifted to the field theoretic level, by transforming the noncanonical Poisson bracket and Hamiltonian structure of the Vlasov-Maxwell dynamics. Several examples are given including magnetic coordinates, where the velocity is decomposed into components parallel and perpendicular to the local magnetic field, and the case of spherical velocity coordinates. An example of the lifting procedure is performed to obtain a simplified version of gyrokinetics, where the magnetic moment is used as a coordinate and the dynamics is reduced by elimination of the electric field energy in the Hamiltonian.

    A strong magnetic field significantly affects the intrinsic magnetic moment of fermions. In quantum electrodynamics, it was shown that the anomalous magnetic moment of an electron arises kinematically, while it results from a dynamical interaction with an external magnetic field for hadrons (proton). Taking the anomalous magnetic moment of a fermion into account, we find an exact expression for the boundstate energy and the corresponding eigenfunctions of a two-dimensional nonrelativistic spin-1/2 harmonic oscillator with a centripetal barrier (known as the isotonic oscillator) including an Aharonov-Bohm term in the presence of a strong magnetic field. We use the Laplace transform method in the calculations. We find that the singular solution contributes to the phase of the wave function at the origin and the phase depends on the spin and magnetic flux.

    In this work we use a combination of x-ray magnetic circular and linear dichroism (XMCD and XMLD) techniques to examine the formation of local moments in Heusler alloys of the composition Co{sub 2}MnX (where X=Si or Al). The existence of local moments in a half-metallic system is reliant upon the band gap in the minority-spin states. By utilizing the element-specific nature of x-ray techniques we are able to explore the origin of the minority-spin band gap in the partial density of states (PDOS), via the degree of localization of moments on Co and Mn atoms. We observe a crucial difference in the localization of the Co moment when comparing Co{sub 2}MnSi (CMS) and Co{sub 2}MnAl (CMA) films that is consistent with the predicted larger minority-spin gap in the Co PDOS for CMS. These results provide important evidence for the dominant role of the Co minority-spin states in realizing half-metallic ferromagnetism (HMF) in these Heusler alloys. They also demonstrate a direct method for measuring the degree of interfacial HMF in the raw materials without the need for fabricating spin-transport devices.

  3. Bounds on the magnetic moment and the electric dipole moment of the τ neutrino via the process e+e-→νν-barγ

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Bounds on the anomalous magnetic moment and the electric dipole moment of the τ neutrino are calculated through the reaction e+e-→νν-barγ at the Z1 pole, and in the framework of a left-right symmetric model. The results are based on the recent data reported by the L3 Collaboration at CERN e+e- collider LEP. We find that the bounds are almost independent of the mixing angle φ of the model in the allowed experimental range for this parameter. In addition, the analytical and numerical results for the cross section have never been reported in the literature before

Magnetic properties of the samples are investigated by mean of vibrating sample magnetometer, transmission Mössbauer spectroscopy and conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy at room temperature. It is found that the nanowire arrays have obvious perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and are ferromagnetic at room temperature, with its Mössbauer spectra consisting of six broad lines. The average angles between the Fe magnetic moment and the wire axis are about 14° inside and 28° at the end of the amorphous Fe89.7P10.3 alloy nanowire arrays, respectively. The magnetic behaviour is decided by the shape anisotropy and the dipolar interaction between wires.

    2016-06-01

    In this work, we have performed an ab initio theoretical investigation of substitutional cobalt atoms in the graphene bilayer supported on the Cu(111) surface (Co/GBL/Cu). Initially, we examined the separated systems, namely, graphene bilayer adsorbed on Cu(111) (GBL/Cu) and a free standing Co-doped GBL (Co/GBL). In the former system, the GBL becomes n -type doped, where we map the net electronic charge density distribution along the GBL-Cu(111) interface. The substitutional Co atom in Co/GBL lies between the graphene layers, and present a net magnetic moment mostly due to the unpaired Co-3 dz2 electrons. In Co/GBL/Cu, we found that the Cu(111) substrate rules (i) the energetic stability, and (ii) the magnetic properties of substitutional Co atoms in the graphene bilayer. In (i), the substitutional Co atom becomes energetically more stable lying on the GBL surface, and in (ii), the magnetic moment of Co/GBL has been quenched due to the Cu(111) → Co/GBL electronic charge transfer. We verify that such a charge transfer can be tuned upon the application of an external electric field, and thus mediated by a suitable change on the electronic occupation of the Co-dz2 orbitals, we found a way to switch-on and -off the magnetization of the Co-doped GBL adsorbed on the Cu(111) surface.

    Electromagnetic moments of nuclei have always played an important role in determining details of nuclear structure. Recent measurements of magnetic moments by a technique combining Coulomb excitation in inverse kinematics and the transient field approach have yielded data of very high precision. These data have consequently established very stringent limits on the models and interactions used to describe the microscopic wave functions of the low-lying states of nuclei. The interpretation of new measurements of magnetic moments of the 21+ states in 46,48,50Ti, 50,52Cr, and 54Fe in terms of shell model calculations exhibits high sensitivity to the type of interaction (FDP6, KB3, FPY or VHG) used and to the model space. These results will be presented as well as new results in heavier nuclei such as the stable isotopes of Kr, Zr, Xe, and Nd. In these heavier nuclei the single particle neutron configurations exert a major influence on the structure for even the lowest spins. The techniques described in this talk will be particularly useful for future measurements on beams of radioactive isotopes.

    High-frequency applications of magnetic nanoparticles, such as therapeutic hyperthermia and magnetic particle imaging, are sensitive to nanoparticle size and dipole moment. Usually, it is assumed that magnetic nanoparticles with a log-normal distribution of the physical size also have a log-normal distribution of the magnetic dipole moment. Here, we test this assumption for different types of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles in the 5–20 nm range, by multimodal fitting of magnetization curves using the MINORIM inversion method. The particles are studied while in dilute colloidal dispersion in a liquid, thereby preventing hysteresis and diminishing the effects of magnetic anisotropy on the interpretation of the magnetization curves. For two different types of well crystallized particles, the magnetic distribution is indeed log-normal, as expected from the physical size distribution. However, two other types of particles, with twinning defects or inhomogeneous oxide phases, are found to have a bimodal magnetic distribution. Our qualitative explanation is that relatively low fields are sufficient to begin aligning the particles in the liquid on the basis of their net dipole moment, whereas higher fields are required to align the smaller domains or less magnetic phases inside the particles. - Highlights: • Multimodal fits of dilute ferrofluids reveal when the particles are multidomain. • No a priori shape of the distribution is assumed by the MINORIM inversion method. • Well crystallized particles have log-normal TEM and magnetic size distributions. • Defective particles can combine a monomodal size and a bimodal dipole moment.

  9. Electric and anomalous magnetic dipole moments of the muon in the MSSM

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the electric dipole moment (EDM) and the anomalous magnetic dipole moment (MDM) of the muon in the CP-violating Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). We take into account the contributions from the chargino- and neutralino-mediated one-loop graphs and the dominant two-loop Higgs-mediated Barr-Zee diagrams. We improve earlier calculations by incorporating CP-violating Higgs-boson mixing effects and the resummed threshold corrections to the Yukawa couplings of the charged leptons as well as that of the bottom quark. The analytic correlation between the muon EDM and MDM is explicitly presented at one- and two-loop levels and, through several numerical examples, we illustrate its dependence on the source of the dominant contributions. We have implemented the analytic expressions for the muon EDM and MDM in an updated version of the public code CPsuperH2.0.

    The motivating question for this dissertation was to identify the minimal requirements for fluid models of plasma to allow converged simulations that agree well with converged kinetic simulations of fast magnetic reconnection. We show that truncation closure for the deviatoric pressure or for the heat flux results in singularities. Due to the strong pressure anisotropies that arise, we study magnetic reconnection with a Gaussian-moment two-fluid MHD with isotropization of the pressure tensor. For the GEM magnetic reconnection challenge problem, our deviatoric pressure tensor agrees well with published kinetic simulations at the time of peak reconnection, but sometime thereafter the numerical solution becomes unpredictable and develops near-singularities that crash the simulation unless positivity limiters are applied. To explain these difficulties, we show that steady reconnection requires heat flux. Specifically, for two-dimensional problems invariant under 180-degree rotation about the X-point, entropy prod...

    In this study, the correlation between magnetic, structure, and electronic properties of Ag-Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} hetero nanostructures are presented. These nanostructures were prepared using a two-step new chemical approach. Three different nanoparticle systems with different Ag concentrations have been prepared and characterized using high resolution transmission electron microscopy, dc magnetization (magnetization and coercive field as a function of temperature), X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy, and magnetic circular dichroism studies (XMCD). From the correlation between XMCD and dc magnetic measurements (Verwey transition) the presence of non-stoichiometric magnetite in Ag-Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanoparticle systems was confirmed. From the spin and orbital contribution to the total magnetic moment, we conclude that the sample with less Ag seeds particle concentration presents a non-quenched orbital contribution. These phenomena were analyzed based on the actual models and correlated with dc magnetic properties. From these, we conclude that the enhancement on the orbital contribution increases the spin orbital interaction, also increasing the magnetocrystalline anisotropy reflected on the dc magnetic properties.

  13. Experimental investigations on the splitting of coherent population trapping resonances by the nuclear magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Coherent population trapping (CPT) is a resonance phenomenon due to a quantum mechanical interference effect within an atomic system. The resonantly driven atomic level population is being trapped into a superpositional dark state, yielding the atomic medium transparent for the exciting electromagnetic fields. The observation of this effect requires a special electronic structure (Λ-System) and suitable lifetimes which can be found e.g. in alkali atoms. In the experiments transitions are excited by a bi-chromatic laser radiation within the manifold of the D1-line of 87Rb . If a magnetic field is applied, a dark resonance spectrum of several Zeeman components appears as a result of the sublevel structure of the D1-line. An additional splitting of CPT resonances is observable by virtue of a lifted degeneracy with respect to the nuclear magnetic moment even before the Paschen-Pack regime is reached. We present experimental investigations on the behavior of the CPT resonances split by the nuclear magnetic moment under different external magnetic fields, laser polarizations and laser intensities. We focus our considerations on a special type of the Λ-System formation. In this case the center of gravity of the pair of split CPT resonances (called pseudoresonance) is sensitive to external magnetic fields only to second order in the magnetic field strength. The short term frequency stability of this pseudoresonance approaches the level of 10-14/ √τ making this standard as a good candidate for applications in compact atomic clocks used e.g. in GPS receivers and satellites.

    In the large N limit cold dense nuclear matter must be in a lattice phase. This applies also to holographic models of hadron physics. In a class of such models, like the generalized Sakai-Sugimoto model, baryons take the form of instantons of the effective flavor gauge theory that resides on probe flavor branes. In this paper we study the phase structure of baryonic crystals by analyzing discrete periodic configurations of such instantons. We find that instanton configurations exhibit a serie...

  15. Electromagnetic and axial structures of Baryon ground and resonant states

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis is devoted to the investigation of the electroweak structures of baryons. One performs a comprehensive study of the electromagnetic and axial form factors of baryon ground states with flavors 'up', 'down', and 'strange'; regarding baryon resonances the axial charges are investigated. The dynamics for the description of baryons is furnished by the relativistic constituent-quark model, of which three different variants are applied here. The calculations are performed in the framework of relativistic quantum mechanics, where the electromagnetic and axial current operators are constructed along a spectator model in the point-form.While the evaluations of the electroweak form factors are based on an already established formalism, one develops a generally valid formulation for the axial charges. Thereby it becomes possible to calculate these quantities for arbitrary baryon states and completely general interaction models.It turns out that relativistic constituent-quark models can describe in the framework of a Poincare-invariant formalism not only the electromagnetic but also the axial form factors, which are calculated here for the first time for all baryons. Globally, a good agreement with experiment is achieved up to momentum transfers of about 4 GeV/c. With regard to the particularly sensitive quantities, like the electric radii and magnetic moments, the constituent-quark model based on Goldstone-boson exchange yields the best results. In cases, where no experimental data exist, the predictions agree well with results from lattice quantum chromodynamics. The analogue is true for the axial charges of baryon ground and resonant states. Except for some special cases, their values are presented here for the first time comprehensively and consistently.

    We report here on the first measurement in an experimental program initiated at the ISOLDE facility at CERN for the measurement of magnetic moments of short-lived radionuclides. The 60~keV ISOLDE beam from the GPS separator is boosted in energy by a 200~kV high-voltage platform, on which the whole experiment is mounted, in order to achieve sufficiently high energy for transmission through the foils of a tilted-foil setup. The 520~keV $^{23}$Mg(2$^+$) nuclei are polarized by the tilted foil technique and the resulting 0$^o$ - 180$^o$ $\\beta$- asymmetry is monitored as a function of the frequency of an rf-applied perturbing magnetic field in an NMR setup.\\\\ In this experiment, earlier asymmetry measurements were confirmed and an NMR resonance was observed, corresponding to a preliminary value of the magnetic moment of 0.533(6) n.m., in agreement with a previous measurement. The measured asymmetry as function of NMR frequency and the fitted resonance curve are presented in the figure. During the e...

    We develop a self-consistent relativistic disordered local moment (RDLM) scheme aimed at describing finite-temperature magnetism of itinerant metals from first principles. Our implementation in terms of the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker multiple-scattering theory and the coherent potential approximation allows us to relate the orientational distribution of the spins to the electronic structure, thus a self-consistent treatment of the distribution is possible. We present applications for bulk bcc Fe, L10-FePt, and FeRh ordered in the CsCl structure. The calculations for Fe show significant variation of the local moments with temperature, whereas according to the mean-field treatment of the spin fluctuations the Curie temperature is overestimated. The magnetic anisotropy of FePt alloys is found to depend strongly on intermixing between nominally Fe and Pt layers, and it shows a power-law behavior as a function of magnetization for a broad range of chemical disorder. In the case of FeRh we construct a lattice constant vs temperature phase diagram and determine the phase line of metamagnetic transitions based on self-consistent RDLM free-energy curves.

    An absolute shielding scale is proposed for (207)Pb nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. It is based on ab initio calculations performed on an isolated tetramethyllead Pb(CH3)4 molecule and the assignment of the experimental resonance frequency from the gas-phase NMR spectra of Pb(CH3)4, extrapolated to zero density of the buffer gas to obtain the result for an isolated molecule. The computed (207)Pb shielding constant is 10 790 ppm for the isolated molecule, leading to a shielding of 10799.7 ppm for liquid Pb(CH3)4 which is the accepted reference standard for (207)Pb NMR spectra. The new experimental and theoretical data are used to determine μ((207)Pb), the nuclear magnetic dipole moment of (207)Pb, by applying the standard relationship between NMR frequencies, shielding constants and nuclear moments of two nuclei in the same external magnetic field. Using the gas-phase (207)Pb and (reference) proton results and the theoretical value of the Pb shielding in Pb(CH3)4, we find μ((207)Pb) = 0.59064 μN. The analysis of new experimental and theoretical data obtained for the Pb(2+) ion in water solutions provides similar values of μ((207)Pb), in the range of 0.59000-0.59131 μN. PMID:27265668

  1. Strong impact of lattice vibrations on electronic and magnetic properties of paramagnetic Fe revealed by disordered local moments molecular dynamics

    We study the impact of lattice vibrations on magnetic and electronic properties of paramagnetic bcc and fcc iron at finite temperature, employing the disordered local moments molecular dynamics (DLM-MD) method. Vibrations strongly affect the distribution of local magnetic moments at finite temperature, which in turn correlates with the local atomic volumes. Without the explicit consideration of atomic vibrations, the mean local magnetic moment and mean field derived magnetic entropy of paramagnetic bcc Fe are larger compared to paramagnetic fcc Fe, which would indicate that the magnetic contribution stabilizes the bcc phase at high temperatures. In the present study we show that this assumption is not valid when the coupling between vibrations and magnetism is taken into account. At the γ -δ transition temperature (1662 K), the lattice distortions cause very similar magnetic moments of both bcc and fcc structures and hence magnetic entropy contributions. This finding can be traced back to the electronic densities of states, which also become increasingly similar between bcc and fcc Fe with increasing temperature. Given the sensitive interplay of the different physical excitation mechanisms, our results illustrate the need for an explicit consideration of vibrational disorder and its impact on electronic and magnetic properties to understand paramagnetic Fe. Furthermore, they suggest that at the γ -δ transition temperature electronic and magnetic contributions to the Gibbs free energy are extremely similar in bcc and fcc Fe.

    We extended the standard model with a fourth generation of fermions to explain the discrepancy in the muon magnetic moment and to describe the positron excess observed by AMS-02 experiment. We introduce a gauged $SU(2)_{HV}$ horizontal symmetry between the muon and the 4th generation lepton families and identified the 4th generation right-handed neutrino as the dark matter with mass $\\sim 700$ GeV. The dark matter annihilates through $SU(2)_{HV}$ gauge boson into final states $(\\mu^+ \\mu^-)$ and $(\

    2011-01-01

    We study phenomenological aspects of the MSSM with extra U(1) gauge symmetry. We find that the lightest Higgs boson mass can be increased up to 125GeV without introducing a large SUSY scale or large A-terms, in the frameworks of the CMSSM and gauge mediated SUSY breaking (GMSB) models. This scenario can simultaneously explain the discrepancy of the muon anomalous magnetic moment (muon g-2) at the 1 sigma / 2 sigma level for U(1)-extended CMSSM / GMSB models. In the CMSSM case, the dark matter abundance can also be explained.

  4. Influence of the electron's anomalous magnetic dipole moment on high-atomic number atoms

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Super heavy atoms ( Z > 100 ) are usually studied in the context of the so-called Quantum Electrodynamics of Strong Fields. In this theory the problem of the singularity in the electron energy whenever Z > 137 is overcome. This is done by considering the finite size of the nucleus and leads to interesting phenomena, such as the spontaneous production of positrons. Here, we show that, taking into account the contribution from the Anomalous Magnetic Dipole Moment of the electron ( by means of an effective theory ), within a point nucleus model, is a sufficient condition to obtain regular wave functions and physically acceptable energy values for Z > 137.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present status of the neutrino magnetic moment solutions of the solar neutrino problem is summarized. After a brief review of the basics of the neutrino spin and spin-flavor precession I discuss the experimental data and show how the neutrino resonant spin-flavor precession (RSFP) mechanism can naturally account for sizeable time variations in the Homestake signal and no observable time variations in the Kamiokande and gallium experiments. Fits of the existing data and predictions for the forthcoming solar neutrino experiments are also discussed. In the last section I summarize the objections to the RSFP mechanism that are frequently put forward and comment on them. (author). 69 refs, 3 figs

    We compute the next-to-next-to-leading order hadronic contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment originating from the photon vacuum polarization. The corresponding three-loop kernel functions are calculated using asymptotic expansion techniques which lead to analytic expressions. Our final result, aμhad,NNLO=1.24±0.01×10−10, has the same order of magnitude as the current uncertainty of the leading order hadronic contribution and should thus be included in future analyses

    2016-04-01

    A general formula for the orbital magnetic moment of interacting electrons in solids is derived using the many-electron Green's function method. The formula factorizes into two parts, a part that contains the information about the one-particle band structure of the system and a part that contains the effects of exchange and correlations carried by the Green's function. The derived formula provides a convenient yet rigorous means of including the effects of exchange and correlations beyond the commonly used local density approximation of density functional theory.

  8. Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment and Gauge Symmetry in the Standard Model

    CERN Document Server

    Tsai, Er-Cheng

    2014-01-01

    No gauge invariant regularization is available for the perturbative calculation of the standard model. One has to add finite counter terms to restore gauge symmetry for the renormalized amplitudes. The muon anomalous magnetic moment can be accurately measured but the experimental result does not entirely agree with the theoretical calculation from the standard model. This paper is to compute the contributions to the muon gyromagnetic ratio $g_{\\mu}$ due to the finite counter terms. The result obtained is found to be far from sufficient to explain the discrepancy between theory and experiment.

  9. Magnetic moments of lanthanide 3-, 4-nitrobenzoates and 3,4-dinitrobenzoates

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The magnetic moments for lanthanide 3-nitro and 4-nitrobenzoates were determined at 298 K and those for 3,4-dinitrobenzoates of rare earth elements over the temperature range 77 - 296 K. The complexes of 3,4-dinitrobenzoates of rare earth were found to obey the Curie-Weiss law. The values of μ calculated for all complexes (except that for europium 3,4-dinitrobenzoates) are close to those obtained for Ln3+ ions by Hund and Van Vleck. The results reveal that irrespective of the kind of ligands (3-nitro, 4-nitro or 3,4-dinitrobenzoates) no influence of their field on lanthanide ions occurs. (author)

  10. Solar neutrino variations: a manifestation of nonzero neutrino mass and magnetic moment, and mixing

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Time variations of solar neutrino flux are investigated for more that two solar cycles (1970-1994). For each solar neutrino run n, the effective Earth's helio-latitude, the effective sunspots number, the effective latitude of sunspots distribution, and the effective surfaces of sunspots are determined. The correlation of solar electron neutrino fluxes with these parameters for different periods of solar activity are considered. It is found that correlation coefficients change the sign in different periods of solar activity. The obtained information indicate that neutrino should have nonzero mass and nonzero magnetic moment

  11. Topcolour-assisted technicolour models and the muon anomalous magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss and estimate the contributions of the new particles predicted by topcolour-assisted technicolour (TC2) models to the muon anomalous magnetic moment aμ. Our results show that the contributions of pseudo-Goldstone bosons are very small and can be safely ignored. The main contributions come from the ETC gauge boson xμ and topcolour gauge boson Z'. If we demand that the mass of Z' is consistent with other experimental constraints, its contributions are smaller than that of xμ. With reasonable values of the parameters in TC2 models, the observed BNL results for aμ could be explained. (author)

    Recent determinations of the white dwarf luminosity function (WDLF) from very large surveys have extended our knowledge of the WDLF to very high luminosities. This, together with the availability of new full evolutionary white dwarf models that are reliable at high luminosities, have opened the possibility of testing particle emission in the core of very hot white dwarfs, where neutrino processes are dominant. We use the available WDLFs from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey to constrain the value of the neutrino magnetic dipole moment ($\\mu_\

    Effective supersymmetry(SUSY) where stop is the lightest squark may run into a two-loop tachyonic problem in some Z' mediation models. In addition, a large A term or/and a large stop mass are needed to have about a 126 GeV Higgs boson with three families of quarks and leptons. Thus, we suggest an inverted effective SUSY(IeffSUSY) where stop mass is larger compared to those of the first two families. In this case, it is possible to have a significant correction to the anomalous magnetic moment...

  20. Comparison of multi-fluid moment models with particle-in-cell simulations of collisionless magnetic reconnection

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We introduce an extensible multi-fluid moment model in the context of collisionless magnetic reconnection. This model evolves full Maxwell equations and simultaneously moments of the Vlasov-Maxwell equation for each species in the plasma. Effects like electron inertia and pressure gradient are self-consistently embedded in the resulting multi-fluid moment equations, without the need to explicitly solving a generalized Ohm's law. Two limits of the multi-fluid moment model are discussed, namely, the five-moment limit that evolves a scalar pressures for each species and the ten-moment limit that evolves the full anisotropic, non-gyrotropic pressure tensor for each species. We first demonstrate analytically and numerically that the five-moment model reduces to the widely used Hall magnetohydrodynamics (Hall MHD) model under the assumptions of vanishing electron inertia, infinite speed of light, and quasi-neutrality. Then, we compare ten-moment and fully kinetic particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations of a large scale Harris sheet reconnection problem, where the ten-moment equations are closed with a local linear collisionless approximation for the heat flux. The ten-moment simulation gives reasonable agreement with the PIC results regarding the structures and magnitudes of the electron flows, the polarities and magnitudes of elements of the electron pressure tensor, and the decomposition of the generalized Ohm's law. Possible ways to improve the simple local closure towards a nonlocal fully three-dimensional closure are also discussed

  1. Magnetic dipole moment of a spherical shell with TRM acquired in a field of internal origin. [Thermoremanent Magnetization implications for lunar magnetic field

    Science.gov (United States)

    Srnka, L. J.

    1976-01-01

    The acquisition of thermoremanent magnetization (TRM) by a cooling spherical shell is studied for internal magnetizing dipole fields, using Runcorn's (1975) theorems on magnetostatics. If the shell cools progressively inward, inner regions acquire TRM in a net field composed of the dipole source term plus a uniform field due to the outer magnetized layers. In this case, the global dipole moment and external remanent field are nonzero when the whole shell has cooled below the Curie point and the source dipole has disappeared. The remanent field outside the shell is found to depend on the thickness, radii, and cooling rate of the shell, as well as the coefficient of TRM and the intensity of the magnetizing field. Some implications for the moon's remanent dipole moment are discussed.

  2. Why baryons are Yang-Mills magnetic monopoles, validated by nuclear binding energies and proton and neutron masses

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yablon, Jay R.

    2013-10-01

    Evidence is summarized from four recent papers that baryons including protons and neutrons are magnetic monopoles of non-commuting Yang-Mills gauge theories: 1) Protons and neutrons are ``resonant cavities'' with binding energies determined strictly by the masses of the quarks they contain. This is proven true at parts-per million accuracy for each of the 2H, 3H,3He, 4He binding energies and the neutron minus proton mass difference. 2) Respectively, each free proton and neutron contains 7.64 MeV and 9.81 MeV of mass/energy used to confine its quarks. When these nucleons bind, some, never all, of this energy is released and the mass deficit goes into binding. The balance continues to confine quarks. 56Fe releases 99.8429% of this energy for binding, more than any other nuclide. 3) Once we consider the Fermi vev one also finds an entirely theoretical explanation of proton and neutron masses, which also connects within experimental errors to the CKM quark mixing angles. 4) A related GUT explains fermion generation replication based on generator loss during symmetry breaking, and answers Rabi's question ``who ordered this?'' 5) Nuclear physics is governed by combining Maxwell's two classical equations into one equation using non-commuting gauge fields in view of Dirac theory and Fermi-Dirac-Pauli Exclusion. 6) Atoms themselves are core magnetic charges (nucleons) paired with orbital electric charges (electrons and elusive neutrinos), with the periodic table itself revealing an electric/magnetic symmetry of Maxwell's equations often pondered but heretofore unrecognized for a century and a half.

  3. What can nuclear magnetic moments reveal about the microscopic nature of tunnelling systems in glasses?

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    More than thirty years ago anomalies in glasses at low temperatures were successfully explained by introducing atomic tunnelling systems (TS), described by the phenomenological standard tunnelling model. However, the universal behaviour of glasses prevented the experimental investigation of the microscopic nature of these TSs. Recently, unexpected magnetic field effects of the dielectric constant and of the two pulse polarisation echo amplitude, observed in non-magnetic glasses, turned out to be a proper experimental tool to investigate the microscopics of TSs. The echo experiments, done on glycerol and deuterated glycerol, prove that the interaction of nuclear quadrupole moments with local electric field gradients as well as interacting nuclear magnetic dipoles cause the observed magnetic field effects. Interestingly, the magnitude of the echo amplitude variations in magnetic fields is governed by the motion of the TSs. We present the measured effects together with numerical calculations based on the mentioned interactions which enable us to derive details of the TS's microscopic motions in glycerol. These calculations were done without considering dissipative processes acting at finite temperatures and, therefore, are strictly valid only at T=0. An analysis of the measured echo decay at different temperatures suggests that this quantum behaviour is observed, on the time scale of our measurements, at temperatures below 5mK.

We find that a large fraction of the magnetic moments are not quenched down to very low temperatures T , leading to a power-law distribution of Kondo temperatures P (TK)˜TKα -1, with a nonuniversal exponent α , in a remarkable similarity to the Kondo-disorder scenario found in disordered heavy-fermion metals. For α <1 , the resulting singular P (TK) induces non-Fermi-liquid behavior with diverging thermodynamic responses as T →0 .

  5. New Measurement of the Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Positive Muon

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The muon anomalous magnetic moment has been measured in a new experiment at Brookhaven. Polarized muons were stored in a superferric ring, and the angular frequency difference, ωa , between the spin precession and orbital frequencies was determined by measuring the time distribution of high-energy decay positrons. The ratio R of ωa to the Larmor precession frequency of free protons, ωp , in the storage-ring magnetic field was measured. We find R=3.707 220(48)x10-3 . With μμ/μp=3.183 345 47(47) this gives aμ+=1 165 925(15)x10-9 (±13 ppm ), in good agreement with the previous CERN measurements for μ+ and μ- and of approximately the same precision. copyright 1999 The American Physical Society

    Phonon coupling (PC) corrections to magnetic moments of odd neighbors of magic and semi-magic nuclei are analyzed within the self-consistent Theory of Finite Fermi Systems (TFFS) based on the Energy Density Functional by Fayans et al. The perturbation theory in g_L^2 is used where g_L is the phonon-particle coupling vertex. A model is developed with separating non-regular PC contributions, the rest is supposed to be regular and included into the standard TFFS parameters. An ansatz is proposed to take into account the so-called tadpole term which ensures the total angular momentum conservation with g_L^2 accuracy. An approximate method is suggested to take into account higher order terms in g_L^2. Calculations are carried out for four odd-proton chains, the odd Tl, Bi, In and Sb ones. Different PC corrections strongly cancel each other. In the result, the total PC correction to the magnetic moment in magic nuclei is, as a rule, negligible. In non-magic nuclei considered it is noticeable and, with only one exce...

  8. Magnetic moments of nuclei near Z=40, 50 and 82 measured by nuclear orientation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetic moments of ground and isomeric states by static nuclear orientation at low temperature are measured. The following nuclei, standing near Z=40, 50 and 82, 87Y, 93 Mosup(m), 93-94Tc, 110Insup(m) 106Agsup(m), 189-191Pt have been studied. Results are compared with single particle predictions for (1g9/2) and (3p3/2) orbitals of the shell model, corrected for mesonic and core-polarization effects. A number of multipole mixing ratios of transitions in the daughter nuclei have been determined. Experiments have been done with the first top loading, rapid access 3He-4He dilution refrigator. This feature enlarges the field of the method to shorter lifetimes nuclei. Formal development of nuclear orientation coefficients are also presented with both, a randomly oriented electric quadrupole interaction and a polarized magnetic dipole interaction, acting in the oriented state. The numerical results are put in a table for all spins from I=1 to 8, a wide range of temperature and ratio of quadrupole to dipole interactions strenghts values. These calculations enable to get electric quadrupole moments of long lived nuclei from low temperature nuclear orientation in non-cubic polycristalline samples

    The hadronic leading-order (hlo) contribution to the lepton anomalous magnetic moments $a_l^\\mathrm{hlo}$ of the Standard Model leptons still accounts for the dominant source of the uncertainty of the Standard Model estimates. We present the results of an investigation of the hadronic leading order anomalous magnetic moments of the electron, muon and tau lepton from first principles in twisted mass lattice QCD. With lattice data for multiple pion masses in the range $230 \\mathrm{~MeV} \\lesssim m_{PS} \\lesssim 490 \\mathrm{~MeV}$, multiple lattice volumes and three lattice spacings we perform the extrapolation to the continuum and to the physical pion mass and check for all systematic uncertainties in the lattice calculation. As a result we calculate $a_{l}^\\mathrm{hlo}$ for the three Standard Model leptons with controlled statistical and systematic error in agreement with phenomenological determinations using dispersion relations and experimental data. In addition, we also give a first estimate of the hadronic...

    Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) in Heusler alloy Co2FeAl thin films sharing an interface with a MgO layer is investigated by angular-dependent x-ray magnetic circular dichroism. Orbital and spin magnetic moments are deduced separately for Fe and Co 3d electrons. In addition, the PMA energies are estimated using the orbital magnetic moments parallel and perpendicular to the film surfaces. We found that PMA in Co2FeAl is determined mainly by the contribution of Fe atoms with large orbital magnetic moments, which are enhanced at the interface between Co2FeAl and MgO. Furthermore, element specific magnetization curves of Fe and Co are found to be similar, suggesting the existence of ferromagnetic coupling between Fe and Co PMA directions.

    We derive the exchange currents of pseudoscalar, vector, and scalar mesons from Feynman diagrams, and use them to calculate the magnetic form factors of nucleon and △(1232). The magnetic moments and electromagnetic radii are obtained by using those form factors and the parameters determined from the masses of nucleon and △(1232).We find the magnetic moments and electromagnetic radii of nucleon and △(1232) can be produced very well in the extended Goldstone-Boson-exchange model in which all of pseudoscalar, vector, and scalar meson nonet are included.The magnetic moments of △(1232) are closer to experiment values and results from lattice calculation than the results obtained by the model without other mesons except for pion and sigma.

  15. Emergence of Magnetic Field due to Spin-Polarized Baryon Matter in Neutron Stars

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A model of the ferromagnetic origin of magnetic fields of neutron stars is considered. In this model, the magnetic phase transition occurs inside the core of neutron stars soon after formation. However, due to the high electric conductivity the core magnetic field is initially fully screened. We study how this magnetic field emerges for an outside observer. After some time, the induced field which screens the ferromagnetic field decays enough to uncover a detectable fraction of the ferromagnetic field. We calculate the time scale of decay of the screening field and study how it depends on the size of the ferromagnetic core. We find that the same fractional decay of the screening field occurs earlier for larger cores. We conjecture that weak fields of millisecond pulsars, B ∼ 108-109 G, could be identified with ferromagnetic fields of unshielding fraction ε ∼ 10-4-10-3 due to decay of screening fields by a factor 1-ε in ∼ 108 years since their birth.

    We intercalate a van der Waals heterostructure of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride with Au, by encapsulation, and show that the Au at the interface is two dimensional. Charge transfer upon current annealing indicates the redistribution of the Au and induces splitting of the graphene band structure. The effect of an in-plane magnetic field confirms that the splitting is due to spin splitting and that the spin polarization is in the plane, characteristic of a Rashba interaction with a magnitude of approximately 25 meV. Consistent with the presence of an intrinsic interfacial electric field we show that the splitting can be enhanced by an applied displacement field in dual gated samples. A giant negative magnetoresistance, up to 75%, and a field induced anomalous Hall effect at magnetic fields <1 T are observed. These demonstrate that the hybridized Au has a magnetic moment and suggests the proximity to the formation of a collective magnetic phase. These effects persist close to room temperature.

    2016-01-01

    The extraction of the magnetic form factor of the nucleon at zero momentum transfer is usually performed by adopting a parametrization for its momentum dependence and fitting the results obtained at finite momenta. We present a position space method that allows to remove the momentum prefactor in the form factor decomposition and hence compute the magnetic form factor directly at zero momentum without the need to assume a functional form for its momentum dependence. The method is explored on one ensemble using $N_f=2+1+1$ Wilson twisted mass fermions with a light quark mass corresponding to $M_\\pi\\approx373\\mathrm{GeV}$ and a lattice spacing of $a\\approx0.082\\mathrm{fm}$. For the isovector magnetic form factor we obtain $G_M^\\mathrm{isov}=4.45(17)_\\mathrm{stat}(07)_\\mathrm{sys}$ as our final result, closer to the experimental value than the results obtained from a standard dipole fit ansatz. In addition, we obtain estimates for the magnetic moment of the proton and the neutron, leading to $G_M^\\mathrm{p}=2.73...

    One of the main challenges of nowadays low-energy physics remains the description of the internal structure of hadrons, strongly connected to the electromagnetic properties of matter. In this vein, the success of the relativistic quark model in the analysis of the hadron structure constitutes a solid motivation for the study carried out throughout this work. The relativistic quark model is extended to the investigation of static electromagnetic properties of both heavy and light baryons. The bare contributions to the magnetic moments of the single-, double- and triple-heavy baryons are calculated. Moreover, the relativistic quark model allows the study of the electromagnetic properties of the light baryon octet incorporating meson cloud contributions in a perturbative manner. The long disputed values of the multipole ratios E2/M1 and C2/M1 and the electromagnetic form factors of the N{yields}{delta}{gamma} transition are successfully reproduced. The relativistic quark model can be viewed as a quantum field theory approach based on a phenomenological Lagrangian coupling light and heavy baryons to their constituent quarks. In our approach the baryon is a composite object of three constituent quarks, at least in leading order. The effective interaction Lagrangian is written in terms of baryon and constituent quark fields. The effective action preserves Lorentz covariance and gauge invariance. The main ingredients of the model are already introduced at the level of the interaction Lagrangian: the three-quark baryon currents, the Gaussian distribution of the constituent quarks inside the baryon and the compositeness condition which sets an upper limit for the baryon-quark vertex. The S-matrix elements are expressed by a set of Feynman quark-diagrams. The model contains only few parameters, namely, the cut-off parameter of the Gaussian quark distribution and the free quark propagator, which are unambiguously determined from the best fit to the data.

    2014-05-09

    In this work, we have studied the chemical and magnetic interactions of Fen (n=1–6) clusters with vacancy defects (monovacancy to correlated vacancies with six missing C atoms) in a graphene sheet by ab initio density functional calculations combined with Hubbard U corrections for correlated Fe-d electrons. It is found that the vacancy formation energies are lowered in the presence of Fe, indicating an easier destruction of the graphene sheet. Due to strong chemical interactions between Fe clusters and vacancies, a complex distribution of magnetic moments appear on the distorted Fe clusters which results in reduced averaged magnetic moments compared to the free clusters. In addition to that, we have calculated spin-dipole moments and magnetic anisotropy energies. The calculated spin-dipole moments arising from anisotropic spin density distributions vary between positive and negative values, yielding increased or decreased effective moments. Depending on the cluster geometry, the easy axis of magnetization of the Fe clusters shows in-plane or out-of-plane behavior.

    Full Text Available Double-gimbal magnetically suspended CMG is a novel attitude control actuator for the agile maneuver spacecraft. Taking the double-gimbal magnetically suspended control moment gyro used on agile maneuver spacecraft as the research object, the dynamic model of the magnetically suspended rotor, the inner gimbal, and the outer gimbal of double-gimbal magnetically suspended control moment gyro is built. The nonlinear coupling characteristic between the rotor, the gimbal, and the spacecraft is given. It can be seen that the motion of magnetically suspended rotor does not only rely on magnetic bearing force but also suffer from the influence of gimbal servo system and spacecraft motion. The coupling torque includes the gyro coupling torque and the inertial coupling torque. The work in this paper provides the foundation for further studies.

    We report on the measurement of a Larmor frequency shift proportional to the electric-field strength for $^{199}{\\rm Hg}$ atoms contained in a volume permeated with aligned magnetic and electric fields. This shift arises from the interplay between the inevitable magnetic field gradients and the motional magnetic field. The proportionality to electric-field strength makes it apparently similar to an electric dipole moment (EDM) signal, although unlike an EDM this effect is P- and T-conserving....

  4. Relativistic energy correction of the hydrogen atom with an anomalous magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The electron is known to possess an anomalous magnetic moment, which interacts with the gradient of the electric field. This makes it necessary to compute its effects on the energy spectrum. Even though the Coulomb Dirac equation can be solved in closed form, this is no longer possible when the anomalous magnetic moment is included. In fact the interaction due to this term is so strong that it changes the domain of the Hamiltonian. From a differential equation point of view, the anomalous magnetic moment term is strongly singular near the origin. As usual, one has to resort to perturbation theory. This, however, only makes sense if the eigenvalues are stable. To prove stability is therefore a challenge one has to face before actually computing the energy shifts. The first stability results in this line were shown by Behncke for angular momenta κ≥3, because the eigenfunctions of the unperturbed Hamiltonian decay fast enough near the origin. He achieved this by decoupling the system and then using the techniques available for second order differential equations. Later, Kalf and Schmidt extended Behncke's results basing their analysis on the Pruefer angle technique and a comparison result for first order differential equations. The Pruefer angle method is particularly useful because it shows a better stability and because it obeys a first order differential equation. Nonetheless, Kalf and Schmidt had to exclude some coupling constants for κ>0. This I believe is an artefact of their method. In this study, I make increasing use of asymptotic integration, a method which is rather well adapted to perturbation theory and is known to give stability results to any level of accuracy. Together with the Pruefer angle technique, this lead to a more general stability result and even allows for an energy shifts estimate. Hamiltonians traditionally treated in physics to describe the spin-orbit effect are not self adjoint i.e. they are not proper observables in quantum

  5. Baryon structure

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A brief review on the theoretical and experimental situation of baryon spectroscopy is first given. Then, the radial structure of baryons, related to the ground state form factors and the baryonic compressibility, is discussed. An experiment has been performed at Saturne laboratory (France) in which for the first time a compression of the nucleon is observed, exciting the P11 (1440 MeV) resonance (Roper resonance) by α-particles. The analysis of the data indicates that this excitation covers a large fraction of the available monopole strength in the nucleon. The derived compressibility is discussed as well as the consequence for other fields, as nuclear medium effects on baryon properties, high density phenomena in nuclear collisions as well as colour transparency. In the last point the spin-flip structure of the P11 (1440 MeV) resonance is discussed. The possibility to determine isoscalar spin-flip strength by polarized deuteron scattering is contrasted with first preliminary results from photon-induced reactions studied at Mainz which indicate a non-negligible M1 excitation of the Roper resonance.

  6. Muon anomalous magnetic moment in a $SU(4) \\otimes U(1)_N$ model without exotic electric charges

    CERN Document Server

    Cogollo, D

    2014-01-01

    We study an electroweak gauge extension of the standard model, so called 3-4-1 model, which does not contain exotic electric charges and it is anomaly free. We discuss phenomenological constraints of the model and compute all the corrections to the muon magnetic moment. Mainly, we discuss different mass regimes and their impact on this correction, deriving for the first time direct limits on the masses of the neutral fermions and charged vector bosons. Interestingly, the model could address the reported muon anomalous magnetic moment excess, however it would demands a rather low scale of symmetry breaking, far below the current electroweak constraints on the model. Thus, if this excess is confirmed in the foreseeable future by the g-2 experiment at FERMILAB, this 3-4-1 model can be decisively ruled out since the model cannot reproduce a sizeable and positive contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment consistent with current electroweak limits.

  7. An interpolation of the vacuum polarization function for the evaluation of hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We propose a simple parameterization of the two-point correlator of hadronic electromagnetic currents for the evaluation of the hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment. The parameterization is explicitly done in the Euclidean domain. The model function contains a phenomenological parameter which provides an infrared cutoff to guarantee the smooth behavior of the correlator at the origin in accordance with experimental data in e+e- annihilation. After fixing a numerical value for this parameter from the leading order hadronic contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, the next-to-leading order results related to the vacuum polarization function are accurately reproduced. The properties of the four-point correlator of hadronic electromagnetic currents as for instance the so-called light-by-light scattering amplitude relevant for the calculation of the muon anomalous magnetic moment are briefly discussed.

    The deuteron magnetic moment is calculated using two model wave functions obtained from 2007 high precision fits to $np$ scattering data. Included in the calculation are a new class of isoscalar $np$ interaction currents which are automatically generated by the nuclear force model used in these fits. After normalizing the wave functions, nearly identical predictions are obtained: model WJC-1, with larger relativistic P-state components, gives 0.863(2), while model WJC-2 with very small P-state components gives 0.864(2) These are about 1\\% larger than the measured value of the moment, 0.857 n.m., giving a new prediction for the size of the $\\rho\\pi\\gamma$ exchange, and other purely transverse interaction currents that are largely unconstrained by the nuclear dynamics.

  10. Magnetic moments of high spin rotational states in 158Dy and 164Dy+

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For the study of their magnetic moments yrast states in 158Dy and 164Dy were excited via the multiple-Coulomb excitation by a 4.7 MeV/u 208Pb beam. Hereby especially the question was of interest, how the one-particle effects in the nuclear structure in the region of the backbending anomaly in 158Dy take effects on the g-factors of the high spin states in this region. The particle-γ angular correlations perturbed in the transient magnetic field during the passing of the excited Dy ions through a thin magnetized iron foil were measured. By the selective position-sensitive detection of Dy recoil ions and Pb projectiles under forward angles it was possible to determine additionally to the g-factors in the backbending region also g-factors in the spin region I 158Dy and 164Dy by detection of the particle-γ correlations precessing in the static hyperfine field after implantation in iron. The static hyperfine field was at the 4+ state in 164Dy determined to B (Dy,Fe) = 245+-25 T. The g-factors were determined by comparison of the experimental results with calculations of the perturbed angular correlations by time-differential regarding of the population and de-excitation of the yrast states as well as by precession and hyperfine-relaxation effects during the flight of the Dy ions in the vacuum.

    We present size dependent spin and orbital magnetic moments of cobalt (Co{sub n}{sup +}, 8 ≤ n ≤ 22), iron (Fe{sub n}{sup +}, 7 ≤ n ≤ 17), and nickel cluster (Ni{sub n}{sup +}, 7 ≤ n ≤ 17) cations as obtained by X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectroscopy of isolated clusters in the gas phase. The spin and orbital magnetic moments range between the corresponding atomic and bulk values in all three cases. We compare our findings to previous XMCD data, Stern-Gerlach data, and computational results. We discuss the application of scaling laws to the size dependent evolution of the spin and orbital magnetic moments per atom in the clusters. We find a spin scaling law “per cluster diameter,” ∼n{sup −1/3}, that interpolates between known atomic and bulk values. In remarkable contrast, the orbital moments do likewise only if the atomic asymptote is exempt. A concept of “primary” and “secondary” (induced) orbital moments is invoked for interpretation.

    We present a four-flavour lattice calculation of the leading-order hadronic vacuum polarisation contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, $a_{\\mu}^{\\rm hvp}$, arising from quark-connected Feynman graphs. It is based on ensembles featuring $N_f=2+1+1$ dynamical twisted mass fermions generated by the European Twisted Mass Collaboration (ETMC). Several light quark masses are used in order to yield a controlled extrapolation to the physical pion mass. We employ three lattice spacings to examine lattice artefacts and several different volumes to check for finite-size effects. Including the complete first two generations of quarks allows for a direct comparison with phenomenological determinations of $a_{\\mu}^{\\rm hvp}$. Our final result involving an estimate of the systematic uncertainty $$a_{\\mathrm{\\mu}}^{\\rm hvp} = 6.74(21)(18) \\cdot 10^{-8}$$ shows a good overall agreement with these computations.

    The MUNU detector was designed to study {nu}-bar {sub e}e{sup -} elastic scattering at low energy. The central component is a Time Projection Chamber filled with CF{sub 4} gas, surrounded by an anti-Compton detector. The experiment was carried out at the Bugey (France) nuclear reactor. In this Letter we present the final analysis of the data recorded at 3 bar and 1 bar pressure. Both the energy and the scattering angle of the recoil electron are measured. From the 3 bar data a new upper limit on the neutrino magnetic moment {mu}{sub e}{sup short}<9x10{sup -11}{mu}{sub B} at 90% CL was derived. At 1 bar electron tracks down to 150 keV were reconstructed, demonstrating the potentiality of the experimental technique for future applications in low energy neutrino physics.

The detector, a gas Time Projection Chamber immersed in a tank filled with liquid scintillator serving as veto, is situated at 18 m from the reactor. Data, corresponding to 66.6 days reactor-on and 16.7 days reactor-off, have been analysed using a visual scanning method. A new limit for the neutrino magnetic moment was derived to: {mu}{sub {nu}} < 1.0x10{sup -10}{mu}{sub B}. An automatic scanning involving a neural network method, used to extend the analysis at low energy (400 keV), is also discussed.

    We study the ${\\rm{2HDM}}$ contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment $a_\\mu$ and present the complete two-loop result, particularly for the bosonic contribution. We focus on the Aligned ${\\rm{2HDM}}$, which has general Yukawa coupling constants and is more general than the type I, II, X, Y models. The result is expressed with physical parameters: three Higgs boson masses, Yukawa couplings, two mixing angles, and one quartic potential parameter. We show that the result can be split into several parts, each of which has a simple parameter dependence, and we document the general behavior. Taking into account constraints on parameters, we find that the full ${\\rm{2HDM}}$ contribution to $a_\\mu$ can accommodate the current experimental value, and the complete two-loop bosonic result contribution can amount to $(2\\cdots 4)\\times 10^{-10}$, more than the future experimental uncertainty.

  20. MeV scale leptonic force for cosmic neutrino spectrum and muon anomalous magnetic moment

    CERN Document Server

    2015-01-01

    Characteristic patterns of cosmic neutrino spectrum reported by the IceCube collaboration and long-standing inconsistency between theory and experiment in muon anomalous magnetic moment are simultaneously explained by an extra leptonic force mediated by a gauge field with a mass of the MeV scale. With different assumptions for redshift distribution of cosmic neutrino sources, diffuse neutrino flux is calculated with the scattering between cosmic neutrino and cosmic neutrino background through the new leptonic force. Our analysis sheds light on a relation among lepton physics at the three different scales, PeV, MeV, and eV, and provides possible clues to the distribution of sources of cosmic neutrino and also to neutrino mass spectrum.

    We analyze neutron-antineutron oscillation in detail, developing a Hamiltonian describing the system in the presence of electromagnetic fields. While magnetic fields can couple states of different spin, we show that, because of Fermi statistics, this coupling of different spin states does not involve baryon-number--changing transitions and, therefore, a two-state analysis ignoring spin is sufficient even in the presence of electromagnetic fields. We also enumerate the conditions necessary for...

    Phonon coupling (PC) corrections to magnetic moments of odd neighbors of magic and semimagic nuclei are analyzed within the self-consistent Theory of Finite Fermi Systems (TFFS) based on the Energy Density Functional by S. A. Fayans et al. The perturbation theory in g {/L 2} is used where g L is the phonon-particle coupling vertex. A model is developed with separating non-regular PC contributions, the rest is supposed to be regular and included into the standard TFFS parameters. An ansatz is proposed to take into account the so-called tadpole term which ensures the total angular momentum conservation with g {/L 2} accuracy. An approximate method is suggested to take into account higher-order terms in g {/L 2}. Calculations are carried out for four odd-proton chains, the odd Tl, Bi, In, and Sb ones. Different PC corrections strongly cancel each other. In the result, the total PC correction to the magnetic moment in magic nuclei is, as a rule, negligible. In non-magic nuclei considered it is noticeable and, with only one exception, negative. On average it is of the order of -(0.1-0.5) µ N and improves the agreement of the theory with the data. Simultaneously we calculated the gyromagnetic ratios g {/L ph} of all low-lying phonons in 208Pb. For the 3{1/-} state it is rather close to the Bohr-Mottelson model prediction whereas for other L phonons, two 5- and six positive parity states, the difference from the Bohr-Mottelson values is significant.

    The experimental study of magnetic moments for nuclear states near the ground state, $I \\ge 2$, provides a powerful tool to test nuclear structure models. The study of magnetic moments in nuclei far away from the stability line is the next frontier in such studies. Two techniques have been utilized to populated low-spin states in radioactive nuclei: coulomb excitation reactions using radioactive nuclei, and the transfer of $\\alpha$ particles to stable beams to populate low spin states in radioactive nuclei. A presentations of these two techniques, along with the experimental challenges presented for future uses with nuclei far away from the stability line, will be presented.

  4. Magnetic moment enhancement and spin polarization switch of the manganese phthalocyanine molecule on an IrMn(100) surface

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The geometric, electronic, and magnetic structures of a manganese phthalocyanine (MnPc) molecule on an antiferromagnetic IrMn(100) surface are studied by density functional theory calculations. Two kinds of orientation of the adsorbed MnPc molecule are predicted to coexist due to molecular self-assembly on the surface—a top-site geometry with the Mn–N bonds aligned along the 〈100〉 direction, and a hollow-site orientation in which the Mn–N bonds are parallel to the 〈110〉 direction. The MnPc molecule is antiferromagnetically coupled to the substrate at the top site with a slight reduction in the magnetic moment of the Mn atom of the MnPc molecule (Mnmol). In contrast, the magnetic moment of the Mnmol is enhanced to 4.28 μB at the hollow site, a value larger than that in the free MnPc molecule (3.51 μB). Molecular distortion induced by adsorption is revealed to be responsible for the enhancement of the magnetic moment. Furthermore, the spin polarization of the Mnmol atom at around the Fermi level is found to change from negative to positive through an elongation of the Mn–N bonds of the MnPc. We propose that a reversible switch of the low/high magnetic moment and negative/positive spin polarization might be realized through some mechanical engineering methods

    The search for particle electric dipole moments (edm) is one of the best places to look for physics beyond the standard model because the size of time reversal violation predicted by the standard model is incompatible with present ideas concerning the creation of the Baryon-Antibaryon asymmetry. As the sensitivity of these edm searches increases more subtle systematic effects become important. We develop a general analytical approach to describe a systematic effect recently observed in an ele...

  7. Estimation of breast density: An adaptive moment preserving method for segmentation of fibroglandular tissue in breast magnetic resonance images

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Purpose: Breast density has been found to be a potential indicator for breast cancer risk. The estimation of breast density can be seen as a segmentation problem on fibroglandular tissues from a breast magnetic resonance image. The classic moment preserving is a thresholding method, which can be applied to determine an appropriate threshold value for fibroglandular tissue segmentation. Methods: This study proposed an adaptive moment preserving method, which combines the classic moment preserving and a thresholding adjustment method. The breast MR images are firstly performed to extract the fibroglandular tissue from the breast tissue. The next step is to obtain the areas of the fibroglandular tissue and the whole breast tissue. Finally, breast density can be estimated for the given breast. Results: The Friedman test shows that the qualities of segmentation are insignificant with p < 0.000 and Friedman chi-squared = 1116.12. The Friedman test shows that there would be significant differences in the sum of the ranks of at least one segmentation method. Average ranks indicate that the performance of the four methods is ranked as adaptive moment preserving, fuzzy c-means, moment preserving, and Kapur's method in order. Among the four methods, adaptive moment preserving also achieves the minimum values of MAE and RMSE with 9.2 and 12. Conclusion: This study has verified that the proposed adaptive moment preserving can identify and segment the fibroglandular tissues from the 2D breast MR images and estimate the degrees of breast density.

    We study the nucleon, Sigma and cascade octet baryon electromagnetic form factors and the effects of SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking from 2+1-flavor lattice calculations. We find that electric and magnetic radii are similar; the maximum discrepancy is about 10\\%. In the pion-mass region we explore, both the quark-component and full-baryon moments have small SU(3) symmetry breaking. We extrapolate the charge radii and the magnetic moments using three-flavor heavy-baryon chiral perturbation theory (HBXPT). The systematic errors due to chiral and continuum extrapolations remain significant, giving rise to charge radii for $p$ and $\\Sigma^-$ that are 3--4 standard deviations away from the known experimental ones. Within these systematics the predicted $\\Sigma^+$ and $\\Xi^-$ radii are 0.67(5) and 0.306(15)~fm$^2$ respectively. When the next-to-next-to-leading order of HBXPT is included, the extrapolated magnetic moments are less than 3 standard deviations away from PDG values, and the d

    Fe60Co40 alloy nanoparticles with an average particle size of 30 nm were successfully synthesized in gram scale batches using the modified polyol process. The X-ray diffraction and microstructure studies clearly show the formation of the alloy nanoparticles. The saturation magnetization for the gram scale synthesized Fe60Co40 alloy nanoparticles is in the range of 190-205 emu/g at room temperature. The as-synthesized nanoparticles were used to fabricate transmission lines on FR4 substrate to perform radio frequency (RF) characterization of the nanoparticles at ISM RF bands of interest (all in GHz range). The complex permeability extraction of composite Fe60Co40 nanoparticles were performed using perturbation technique applied to microstrip transmission lines by relative measurement of full two port scattering parameter with respect to a baseline FR4 substrate. The extracted results show attractive characteristics for small size antennas and filters.

  10. KamLAND Bounds on Solar Antineutrinos and neutrino transition magnetic moments

    CERN Document Server

    Torrente-Lujan, E

    2003-01-01

    We investigate the possibility of detecting solar antineutrinos with the KamLAND experiment. These antineutrinos are predicted by spin-flavor oscillations at a significant rate even if this mechanism is not the leading solution to the SNP. The recent evidence from SNO shows that the solar flux could contain a residual component including sterile neutrinos and/or the antineutrinos of the active flavors. KamLAND is sensitive to antineutrinos originated from solar ${}^8$B neutrinos. From KamLAND negative results after 145 days of data taking, we obtain model independent limits on the total flux of solar antineutrinos $\\Phi({}^8 B)< 1.1-3.5\\times 10^4 cm^{-2} s^{-1}$, more than one order of magnitude smaller than existing limits,and on their appearance probability $P<0.15%$ (95% CL). Assuming a concrete model for antineutrino production by spin-flavor precession, this upper bound implies an upper limit on the product of the intrinsic neutrino magnetic moment and the value of the solar magnetic field $\\mu B&...

  11. Correlation of magnetic moments and angular momenta for stars and planets

    2016-01-01

    The observed correlation of the angular momenta $L^{ik}$ and magnetic moments $\\mu_{lm}$ of celestial bodies (the Sun, planets and stars) was discussed by many authors but without any explanation. In this paper a possible explanation of this phenomenon is suggested. It is shown that the function $\\Phi_{lm} =(\\eta/r_g)L^{ik}R_{iklm}$ satisfy Maxwell equations and can be considered as a function which determine the electro-magnetic properties of rotating heavy bodies. The $R_{iklm}$ is the Riemann tensor, which determines the gravitational field of the body, $r_g$ is the gravitational radius of the body, and $\\eta$ is the constant which has to be determined by observations. The field $\\Phi_{lm}$ describe the observed $\\mu \\leftrightarrow L$ correlation. In particular the function $\\Phi_{l0}$ describe the electric field created by rotating heavy bodies. It is possible that the observed electric field of the Earth is created by the Earth rotation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have measured magnetic susceptibility of dilute Ce impurities in the f-band metal α-U. The data show Curie-Weiss behaviour in the temperature range 4.2-300 K yielding a magnetic moment of ∝2μB/Ce and a spin fluctuation temperature TSF of SF value, in the small unit cell of U lattice, deviates strongly from the systematics of Ce magnetism in sp- and d-band metal hosts. The results indicate that magnetism of spin fluctuation of Ce in U is strongly influenced by the host f-band electrons. (orig.)

    2010-07-01

    It has been shown that the orbital magnetic moments of Co clusters can be exceptionally large on a platinum substrate. Together with a strong induced spin-orbit-coupling this leads to a high magnetic anisotropy. We examine the magnetic moments of transition metal elements in small, mass selected alloy clusters on ferromagnetic substrates with the method of X-ray circular magnetic dichroism (XMCD). The measurements are performed at the storage ring of the synchrotron radiation source Bessy II in Berlin. Starting with Co{sub x}Pt{sub y} clusters we proceeded with the investigation of Co{sub x}Pd{sub y} clusters. We will classify the results in the light of the previous measurements also including pure Co{sub x} clusters as a reference.

  14. Accessing interior magnetic field vector components in neutron electric dipole moment experiments via exterior measurements, I. Boundary-value techniques

    CERN Document Server

    Plaster, B

    2013-01-01

    We propose a new concept for determining the interior magnetic field vector components in neutron electric dipole moment experiments. If a closed three-dimensional boundary surface surrounding the fiducial volume of an experiment can be defined such that its interior encloses no currents or sources of magnetization, each of the interior vector field components and the magnetic scalar potential will satisfy a Laplace equation. Therefore, if either the vector field components or the normal derivative of the scalar potential can be measured on the surface of this boundary, thus defining a Dirichlet or Neumann boundary-value problem, respectively, the interior vector field components or the scalar potential (and, thus, the field components via the gradient of the potential) can be uniquely determined via solution of the Laplace equation. We discuss the applicability of this technique to the determination of the interior magnetic field components during the operating phase of neutron electric dipole moment experim...

  15. Review- Numerical simulation of chainlike cluster movement of feeble magnetic particles by induced magnetic dipole moment under high magnetic fields

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tsutomu Ando, Noriyuki Hirota and Hitoshi Wada

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, the motion of a chainlike cluster of feeble magnetic particles induced by high magnetic field is discussed on the basis of the results of numerical simulations. The simulations were performed on glass particles with a diameter of 0.8 mm; and the viscosity, applied magnetic field and magnetic properties of the surrounding medium were changed. In addition to the magnetic field and the difference in magnetic susceptibility between the particles and the surrounding medium, the obtained results indicate that the viscosity is an essential factor for the formation of the chainlike alignment of feeble magnetic particles. We also carried out simulations using glass particles with a smaller diameter of 0.1 mm. Chainlike clusters were produced similar to those of ferromagnetic particles formed in a ferromagnetic fluid.

    The quark-line disconnected diagram is a potentially important ingredient in lattice QCD calculations of the hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. It is also a notoriously difficult one to evaluate. Here, for the first time, we give an estimate of this contribution based on lattice QCD results that have a statistically significant signal, albeit at one value of the lattice spacing and an unphysically heavy value of the u /d quark mass. We use HPQCD's method of determining the anomalous magnetic moment by reconstructing the Adler function from time moments of the current-current correlator at zero spatial momentum. Our results lead to a total (including u , d and s quarks) quark-line disconnected contribution to aμ of -0.15 % of the u /d hadronic vacuum polarization contribution with an uncertainty which is 1% of that contribution.

We explain the difference between the hidden local symmetry and full VMD pion loop and discuss leading logarithms in the anomalous sector of 2-flavour chiral perturbation theory.

  2. Electronic structures and magnetic moments of Co3FeN thin films grown by molecular beam epitaxy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We evaluated electronic structures and magnetic moments in Co3FeN epitaxial films on SrTiO3(001). The experimentally obtained hard x-ray photoemission spectra of the Co3FeN film have a good agreement with those calculated. Site averaged spin magnetic moments deduced by x-ray magnetic circular dichroism were 1.52 μB per Co atom and 2.08 μB per Fe atom at 100 K. They are close to those of Co4N and Fe4N, respectively, implying that the Co and Fe atoms randomly occupy the corner and face-centered sites in the Co3FeN unit cell

    The structure and magnetic phase transitions of the Gd2Fe17 compound are investigated by using a differential thermal/thermogravimetric analyzer, x-ray diffraction, and magnetization measurements. The result shows that there are two phase structures for the Gd2Fe17 compound: the hexagonal Th2Ni17-type structure at high tem-peratures (above 1243℃), and the rhombohedrai Th2Zn17-type structure, respectively. A method to measure the magnetic moments of the Gd-sublattice and the Fe-sublattice in the Gd2Fe17 compound is presented. The moments of the Gd-sublattice and the Fe-sublattice in the Gd2Fe17 compound from 77 to 500 K are measured in this way with a vibrating sample magnetometer. A detailed discussion is presented.

Comparison of the 1-proton-particle excitations in Sb to 1-proton-hole states in In nuclei will shed light on differences between particle and hole excitations as understood within the present model.

    Investigations of CP violation in the hadron sector may be done using measurements in the ThO molecule. Recent measurements in this molecule improved the limit on the electron electric dipole moment (EDM) by an order of magnitude. Another time-reversal (T) and parity (P)-violating effect in 229ThO is induced by the nuclear magnetic quadrupole moment. We perform nuclear and molecular calculations to express this effect in terms of the strength constants of T, P-odd nuclear forces, neutron EDM, QCD vacuum angle θ, quark EDM, and chromo-EDM.

    The Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment (BASE) aims at performing a stringent test of the combined charge parity and time reversal (CPT) symmetry by comparing the magnetic moments of the proton and the antiproton with high precision. Using single particles in a Penning trap, the proton/antiproton $g$-factors, i.e. the magnetic moment in units of the nuclear magneton, are determined by measuring the respective ratio of the spin-precession frequency to the cyclotron frequency. The spin precession frequency is measured by non-destructive detection of spin quantum transitions using the continuous Stern-Gerlach effect, and the cyclotron frequency is determined from the particle's motional eigenfrequencies in the Penning trap using the invariance theorem. By application of the double Penning-trap method we expect that in our measurements a fractional precision of $\\delta g/g$ 10$^{-9}$ can be achieved. The successful application of this method to the antiproton will represent a factor 1000 improvement in the frac...

  7. New evaluation of hadronic contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of charged leptons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A re-evaluation of the lowest-order hagronic vacuum-polarization contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron, muon and tau-lepton with a higher precision in comparison with previous estimates is carried out. The latter is achieved because new data on some exclusive processes have appeared recently, more accomplished models for a description of the pion and kaon electromagnetic structure have been developed and the revised (due to a new value of the coefficient of the third power of αs) QCD formula for R=σtot (e+e-→had)/σtot (e+e-→μ+μ-) with electroweak corrections has been applied to analyze all existing data in a proper way. The final results are ae(2)had=(1.810±0.011±0.002)x10-12 aμ(2)had=(6.986±0.042±0.016)x10-8 and aτ(2)had=(3.436±0.024±0.024)x10-6. 19 refs.; 2 figs.; 3 tabs

  8. Conservation of energy and magnetic moment in neoclassical calculations for optimized stellarators

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In neoclassical calculations for stellarators, it is customary to retain poloidal E × B precession in the kinetic equation, but to neglect other electric field terms of the same formal magnitude, causing non-conservation of total energy (kinetic plus potential) and magnetic moment. Here we consider the effects of retaining these terms in several types of optimized stellarators. It is challenging to maintain the full conservation laws in analytical calculations for a finite temperature gradient, but it is possible for low collisionality in the case of perfectly quasisymmetric plasmas, or more generally, for omnigenous plasmas. For the omnigenous calculation, we develop a new ordering that allows an expansion about the quasisymmetric solution. Even though canonical angular momentum is not conserved in an omnigenous nonsymmetric plasma, it is still possible to define an effective canonical angular momentum for a corresponding quasisymmetric system, and this quantity is useful as a radial variable in the analysis of the omnigenous plasma. Applying these observations and techniques to the drift-kinetic equation, electric-field-driven modifications to the omnigenous distribution function are derived, including a new term which has no analogue in previous neoclassical calculations for omnigenous or quasisymmetric stellarators.

    We present theoretical analyses of anisotropic lattice diamagnetism, magnetization due to magnetic ions and carrier spin-polarization in the diluted magnetic semiconductor, Pb1-EuTe. The lattice diamagnetism results from orbital susceptibility due to inter band effects and spin-orbit contributions. The spin-orbit contribution is found to be dominant. However, both the contributions show pronounced anisotropy. With increase inx, the diamagnetism decreases. We consider contributions from randomly distributed isolated magnetic ions and clusters of pairs and triads for the local moment magnetization. The isolated magnetic-ion contribution is the dominant one. We calculate the magnetization for two typical magnetic ion concentrations: = 0.03 and = 0.06. Temperature dependence of the magnetization is also considered. Apart from lattice and localized magnetic ions, the carrier contribution to the spin-density is also calculated for a carrier density of = 1018 cm-3. The relative spin-density of carriers increases with increase in the magnetic field strength and magnetic ion concentration. The agreement with experiment where available is reasonably good.

  10. Baryonic Popcorn

    2012-01-01

    In the large N limit cold dense nuclear matter must be in a lattice phase. This applies also to holographic models of hadron physics. In a class of such models, like the generalized Sakai-Sugimoto model, baryons take the form of instantons of the effective flavor gauge theory that resides on probe flavor branes. In this paper we study the phase structure of baryonic crystals by analyzing discrete periodic configurations of such instantons. We find that instanton configurations exhibit a series of "popcorn" transitions upon increasing the density. Through these transitions normal (3D) lattices expand into the transverse dimension, eventually becoming a higher dimensional (4D) multi-layer lattice at large densities. We consider 3D lattices of zero size instantons as well as 1D periodic chains of finite size instantons, which serve as toy models of the full holographic systems. In particular, for the finite-size case we determine solutions of the corresponding ADHM equations for both a straight chain and for a 2...

  11. First principles density functional calculation of magnetic moment and hyperfine fields of dilute transition metal impurities in Gd host

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present first principles calculations of electronic structure and magnetic properties of dilute transition metal (3d, 4d and 5d) impurities in a Gd host. The calculations have been performed within the density functional theory using the full potential linearized augmented plane wave technique and the GGA+U method. The spin and orbital contributions to the magnetic moment and the hyperfine fields have been computed. We find large magnetic moments for 3d (Ti–Co), 4d (Nb–Ru) and 5d (Ta–Os) impurities with magnitudes significantly different from the values estimated from earlier mean field calculation [J. Magn. Magn. Mater. 320 (2008) e446–e449]. The exchange interaction between the impurity and host Gd moments is found to be positive for early 3d elements (Sc–V) while in all other cases an anti-ferromagnetic coupling is observed. The trends for the magnetic moment and hyperfine field of d-impurities in Gd show qualitative difference with respect to their behavior in Fe, Co and Ni. The calculated total hyperfine field, in most cases, shows excellent agreement with the experimental results. A detailed analysis of the Fermi contact hyperfine field has been made, revealing striking differences for impurities having less or more than half filled d-shell. The impurity induced perturbations in host moments and the change in the global magnetization of the unit cell have also been computed. The variation within each of the d-series is found to correlate with the d–d hybridization strength between the impurity and host atoms. - Highlights: • Detailed study of transition metal impurities in ferromagnetic Gd has been carried out. • The trends in impurity magnetic moment are qualitatively different from Fe, Co and Ni. • The variation within each of the d-series is found to correlate with the d–d hybridization strength between the impurity and host atoms. • Experimental trend in a hyperfine field has been reproduced successfully

  12. Investigating orbital magnetic moments in spinel-type MnV2O4 using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Element-specific magnetic structures, particularly orbital magnetic moments, of spinel-type MnV2O4 were investigated using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). X-ray absorption and XMCD spectra clearly reveal that the Mn2+ (d5) and V3+ (d2) states are coupled antiferromagnetically. Analyses of XMCD spectra using magneto optical sum rules revealed that small but finite orbital magnetic moments remain in both V and Mn 3d states, which accounts for the antiferro-type orbital ordering in the V sites of MnV2O4 with coexisting complex and real orbital states. Additionally, the Cr doping effect in MnV2O4 was examined. The XMCD spectra of Cr3+ (d3) L-edges exhibited the substitution of Cr ions to the V sites ferromagnetically, with low conductivity through the suppression of the orbital ordering. (author)

    The structural, electronic and magnetic properties of zinc-blende TiBi are investigated by using the first-principles full-potential linearized augmented plane-wave method. It is found that zinc-blende TiBi exhibits half-metallic ferromagnetism with the energy gap of 1.39 eV in the minority-spin channel. The calculated total magnetic moment of 1.00 µ{sub B} per formula unit mainly originates from the Ti atom. We also show that the half-metallicity of zinc-blende TiBi can be maintained up to 3% compression and 5% expansion of lattice constant with respect to the equilibrium lattice, and zinc-blende TiBi is still half-metallic when the spin–orbit coupling is considered. The robust half-metallicity and low magnetic moment make zinc-blende TiBi a potential candidate for spintronic applications. - Highlights: • Half-metallic ferromagnetism in zinc-blende TiBi. • Zinc-blende TiBi has low magnetic moment of 1.00 µ{sub B}/f.u. • Spin–orbit coupling does not destroy the half-metallicity of zinc-blende TiBi.

    We report on the measurement of a Larmor frequency shift proportional to the electric-field strength for $^{199}{\\rm Hg}$ atoms contained in a volume permeated with aligned magnetic and electric fields. This shift arises from the interplay between the inevitable magnetic field gradients and the motional magnetic field. The proportionality to electric-field strength makes it apparently similar to an electric dipole moment (EDM) signal, although unlike an EDM this effect is P- and T-conserving. We have used a neutron magnetic resonance EDM spectrometer, featuring a mercury co-magnetometer and an array of external cesium magnetometers, to measure the shift as a function of the applied magnetic field gradient. Our results are in good agreement with theoretical expectations.

    In the large N c limit cold dense nuclear matter must be in a lattice phase. This applies also to holographic models of hadron physics. In a class of such models, like the generalized Sakai-Sugimoto model, baryons take the form of instantons of the effective flavor gauge theory that resides on probe flavor branes. In this paper we study the phase structure of baryonic crystals by analyzing discrete periodic configurations of such instantons. We find that instanton configurations exhibit a series of "popcorn" transitions upon increasing the density. Through these transitions normal (3D) lattices expand into the transverse dimension, eventually becoming a higher dimensional (4D) multi-layer lattice at large densities. We consider 3D lattices of zero size instantons as well as 1D periodic chains of finite size instantons, which serve as toy models of the full holographic systems. In particular, for the finite-size case we determine solutions of the corresponding ADHM equations for both a straight chain and for a 2D zigzag configuration where instantons pop up into the holographic dimension. At low density the system takes the form of an "abelian anti- ferromagnetic" straight periodic chain. Above a critical density there is a second order phase transition into a zigzag structure. An even higher density yields a rich phase space characterized by the formation of multi-layer zigzag structures. The finite size of the lattices in the transverse dimension is a signal of an emerging Fermi sea of quarks. We thus propose that the popcorn transitions indicate the onset of the "quarkyonic" phase of the cold dense nuclear matter.

The bulk modulus was found to be 9.56 % higher for LaB6 and 2.4% lower for CeB6 compared to the experimental results Gupta et al. [4] and Ogita et al [5], Magnetic moments for LaB6, CeB6 were found in qualitative agreement with the earlier reported results. The results based on generalized gradient approximation (GGA) were found and compared with local spin density approximation (LSDA) results for CeB6 and SmB6 as well.

    2016-04-01

    Background: The structure of the semimagic 50Sn isotopes were previously studied via measurements of B (E 2 ;21+→01+ ) and g factors of 21+ states. The values of the B (E 2 ;21+ ) in the isotopes below midshell at N = 66 show an enhancement in collectivity, contrary to predictions from shell-model calculations. Purpose: This work presents the first measurement of the 2 1+ and 4 1+ states' magnetic moments in the unstable neutron-deficient 110Sn. The g factors provide complementary structure information to the interpretation of the observed B (E 2 ) values. Methods: The 110Sn nuclei have been produced in inverse kinematics in an α -particle transfer reaction from 12C to 106Cd projectiles at 390, 400, and 410 MeV. The g factors have been measured with the transient field technique. Lifetimes have been determined from line shapes using the Doppler-shift attenuation method. Results: The g factors of the 21+ and 41+ states in 110Sn are g (21+) = +0.29(11) and g (41+) = +0.05(14), respectively. In addition, the g (41+) = +0.27(6) in 106Cd has been measured for the first time. A line-shape analysis yielded τ (110Sn ; 21+) = 0.81(10) ps and a lifetime of τ (110Sn ; 31-) = 0.25(5) ps was calculated from the fully Doppler-shifted γ line. Conclusions: No evidence has been found in 110Sn that would require excitation of protons from the closed Z =50 core.

  19. Transmission electron microscopy/electron energy loss spectroscopy measurements and ab initio calculation of local magnetic moments at nickel grain boundaries

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have determined local magnetic moments at nickel grain boundaries using a transmission electron microscopy/electron energy loss spectroscopy method assuming that the magnetic moment of Ni atoms is a linear function of the L3/L2 (white-line ratio) in the energy loss spectrum. The average magnetic moment measured in the grain interior was 0.55 μB, which agrees well with the calculated magnetic moment of pure nickel (0.62 μB). The local magnetic moments at the grain boundaries increased up to approximately 1.0 μB as the mis-orientation angle increased, and showed a maximum around 50°. The respective enhancement of local magnetic moments at the Σ5 (0.63 μB) and random (0.90 μB) grain boundaries in pure nickel was approximately 14 and 64% of the grain interior. In contrast, the average local magnetic moment at the (111) Σ3 grain boundary was found to be 0.55 μB and almost the same as that of the grain interior. These results are in good agreement with available ab initio calculations. (paper)

    A simple version of the cranked Hartree Fock Bogoliubov (CHFB) scheme that has been applied in the present research work is viewed to understand the level systematics in several nuclei. However the transition rates, static quadrupole and magnetic moments are not feasible in this scheme as angular momentum is generated on average in CHFB approach. But the gyromagnetic ratio (g) that is the expectation value of the orbital and spin angular momentum vectors can be calculated within this scheme

  1. Measurement of the antiproton magnetic moment and a determination of the LS-term for the antiproton-nucleus-interaction

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The subjects of this thesis are a measurement of the antiproton magnetic moment, a particle property, with the aim of testing the CPT-theorem for the strong interaction and the investigation of a possible spin-orbit-term of the anti p-nucleus-interaction. For both aspects the information is given in the finestructure-splitting of antiprotonic X-ray-transitions from heavy nuclei, since only for those the splitting is observable. From the finestructure-splitting of the transition 11→10 in 208Pb the magnetic moment of the antiproton can be calculated. The result of this best measurement up to now is μ sub anti p = (-2.8007±0.0091)μN. In between the error bars it confirms the CPT-Theorem and the new average value for the difference of the antiproton magnetic moment from the proton magnetic moment is (μp-anti μ sub anti p)/average = (-2.5±3).10-3. At the same time the limits of our detectors are described and other possibilities are discussed. In 174Yb one observes a splitting of the last observable transition 9→8, which is influenced by the strong interaction. From our measurement we find that the measured splitting is different from the calculated electromagnetic value and the Lorentz-widths of both line components are different as well. It is ΔEsw = 58±25±13 eV and ΔΓ = 195±58±20 eV. As result we find a sign for the existence of a spin-orbit-term of the antiproton-nucleus-interaction. Nevertheless is has to be confirmed in further experiments. (orig./HSI)

  2. Electromagnetic excitation of baryonic resonances up to 2 GeV in the constituent quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present thesis describes the electromagnetic excitation of baryonic resonances up to 2 GeV in the constituent quark model. A given baryon spectrum is tested in exclusive two-particle reactions and cross sections as well as polarization observables are calculated. For this a formalism for the calculation of general polarization observables in exclusive two-particle reaction is presented and applied to the photoproduction of pseudoscalar mesons and the Compton scattering. Resonant and non-resonant contributions to the scattering amplitude are derived in the framework of a Feshbach projection formalism and by this calculated consistently with the baryon spectrum. For photoinduced reactions a multipole analysis is performed and characteristic angular distributions of the cross section and simple polarization observables are studied. The photon-baryon vertex function is derived from the simple photon-quark vertex and decomposed in transverse and longitudinal quark momenta. The magnetic quark moment is modified by addition of vector-dominance contributions, and the spin-orbit correction terms are calculated. The results for two differnt baryon spectra are shown and discussed. (HSI)

    The magnetic properties of the (FeRh){sub 100-y}B{sub y}(y=20,25) amorphous system have been investigated by AC susceptibility, DC magnetization and {sup 57}Fe Moessbauer spectroscopy. The experimental data give strong evidence for the presence of a sizable moment on Rh. Our data suggest that the moment on Rh evolves discontinuously, existing only when it has at least four Fe nearest neighbours. While the condition for the appearance of the moment on Rh is identical in both the a-(FeRh){sub 75}B{sub 25} and a-(FeRh){sub 80}B{sub 20} systems, the magnitude of the induced moment decreases despite an enhancement in the average ferromagnetic exchange in the Boron-rich system. We show that the induced Rh moment is correlated to the Fe-Rh exchange and there are indications of induced moment on Rh even in the paramagnetic state.

These equations for the average values of the translational and spin degrees of freedom are derived from the Schr\\"odinger-Pauli wave equation and they form a set of nine coupled nonlinear evolution equations. The numerical and analytic solutions of these equations are obtained for the combination of the rotating magnetic field of a wave carrying orbital angular momentum and a static magnetic field. The running wave traps the atom only in the transverse direction while the standing wave traps the atom also in the direction of the beam.

Physics of monopole catalysis becomes much simpler in holographic description as it occurs due to the violation of the Bianchi identity for the 5D gauge symmetry when magnetic monopole is present. In holographic QCD we find a unified picture of the baryon number violation under magnetic monopole or electroweak sphaleron, giving a new mechanism of baryon number violation. We also embed our set-up in the string theory model by Sakai and Sugimoto. (author)

  8. Spins, charge radii and magnetic moments of neutron-rich Mn isotopes measured with bunched beam Collinear Laser Spectroscopy

    CERN Document Server

    AUTHOR|(CDS)2085887; Heylen, Hanne

    In this work, the odd-even $^{51–63}$Mn isotopes have been analyzed using collinear laser spectroscopy, from which the magnetic dipole moment and the change in change in mean square charge radius can be determined. The magnetic moment is very sensitive to the composition of the total nuclear wave function, while the charge radius gives information about the relative size and degree of deformation of the nucleus. An additional advantage of collinear laser spectroscopy is the possibility of direct measurement of the nuclear spin. The main motivation behind the study of these isotopes is to investigate the change in nuclear structure when approaching neutron number N = 40. This region is of interest due to the apparent doubly magic nature of $^{68}$Ni , which is not seen in the N = 40 isotopes of $^{26}$Fe and $^{24}$Cr. Mn, situated between these elements, offers another perspective due to its uncoupled proton. Based on the observed spectra and extracted moments, spins were assigned to $^{59,61,63}$Mn. The ex...

  9. Baryonic and Non-Baryonic Dark Matter

    OpenAIRE

    Carr, Bernard

    2000-01-01

    Cosmological nucleosynthesis calculations imply that there should be both non-baryonic and baryonic dark matter. Recent data suggest that some of the non-baryonic dark matter must be "hot" (i.e. massive neutrinos) and there may also be evidence for "cold" dark matter (i.e. WIMPs). If the baryonic dark matter resides in galactic halos, it is likely to be in the form of compact objects (i.e. MACHOs) and these would probably be the remnants of a first generation of pregalactic or protogalactic P...

    We developed a highly sensitive AC/DC magnetometer using a high-temperature superconductor superconducting quantum interference device for the evaluation of magnetic nanoparticles in solutions. Using the developed system, we investigated the distribution of magnetic moments of iron oxide multi-core particles of 100 nm at various iron concentrations that are lower than 96 μg/ml by analyzing the measured magnetization curves. Singular value decomposition and non-regularized non-negative least-squares methods were used during the reconstruction of the distribution. Similar distributions were obtained for all concentrations, and the iron concentration could be determined from the measured magnetization curves. The measured harmonics upon the excitation of AC and DC magnetic fields curves agreed well with the harmonics simulated based on the reconstructed magnetization curves, implying that the magnetization curves of magnetic nanoparticles were successfully obtained as we will show in the article. We compared the magnetization curves between multi-core particles of 100 nm and 130 nm, composed of 12-nm iron oxide nanoparticles. A distinctive magnetic property between the 100 nm and 130 nm particles in low-concentration solutions was successfully characterized. The distribution characteristic of magnetic moments suggests that the net magnetic moment in a multi-core particle is affected by the size of the magnetic cores and their degree of aggregation. Exploration of magnetic properties with high sensitivity can be expected using the developed system.

  12. Analytic treatment of a linear electric field frequency shift induced in confined gases by a magnetic field gradient: Implications for neutron electric dipole moment experiments

    2004-01-01

    The search for particle electric dipole moments (edm) is one of the best places to look for physics beyond the standard model because the size of time reversal violation predicted by the standard model is incompatible with present ideas concerning the creation of the Baryon-Antibaryon asymmetry. As the sensitivity of these edm searches increases more subtle systematic effects become important. We develop a general analytical approach to describe a systematic effect recently observed in an electric dipole moment experiment using stored particles \\cite{JMP}. Our approach is based on the relationship between the systematic frequency shift and the velocity autocorrelation function of the resonating particles. Our results, when applied to well-known limiting forms of the correlation function, are in good agreement with both the limiting cases studied in recent work that employed a numerical/heuristic analysis. Our general approach explains some of the surprising results observed in that work and clarifies several ...

  13. Chiral dynamics of baryons in the perturbative chiral quark model

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Pumsa-ard, K.

    2006-07-01

    In this work we develop and apply variants of a perturbative chiral quark model (PCQM) to the study of baryonic properties dominantly in the low-energy region. In a first step we consider a noncovariant form of the PCQM, where confinement is modelled by a static, effective potential and chiral corrections are treated to second order, in line with similar chiral quark models. We apply the PCQM to the study of the electromagnetic form factors of the baryon octet. We focus in particular on the low-energy observables such as the magnetic moments, the charge and magnetic radii. In addition, the electromagnetic N-delta transition is also studied in the framework of the PCQM. In the chiral loop calculations we consider a quark propagator, which is restricted to the quark ground state, or in hadronic language to nucleon and delta intermediate states, for simplicity. We furthermore include the low-lying excited states to the quark propagator. In particular, the charge radius of the neutron and the transverse helicity amplitudes of the N-delta transition are considerably improved by this additional effect. In a next step we develop a manifestly Lorentz covariant version of the PCQM, where in addition higher order chiral corrections are included. The full chiral quark Lagrangian is motivated by and in analogy to the one of Chiral Perturbation Theory (ChPT). This Lagrangian contains a set of low energy constants (LECs), which are parameters encoding short distance effects and heavy degrees of freedom. We evaluate the chiral Lagrangian to order O(p{sup 4}) and to one loop to generate the dressing of the bare quark operators by pseudoscalar mesons. In addition we include the vector meson degrees of freedom in our study. Projection of the dressed quark operators on the baryonic level serves to calculate the relevant matrix elements. In a first application of this scheme, we resort to a parameterization of the valence quark form factors in the electromagnetic sector. Constraints

    2016-07-01

    The ground state magnetic moments and the low-lying magnetic dipole (Ml) transitions from the ground to excited states in heavy deformed odd-mass 181Ta have been microscopically investigated on the basis of the quasiparticle-phonon nuclear model (QPNM). The problem of the spurious state mixing in M1 excitations is overcome by a restoration method allowing a self-consistent determination of the separable effective restoration forces. Due to the self-consistency of the method, these effective forces contain no arbitrary parameters. The results of calculations are compared with the available experimental data, the agreement being reasonably satisfactory.

    A search for the muon neutrino magnetic moment was conducted using the Mini-BooNE low energy neutrino data. The analysis was performed by analyzing the elastic scattering interactions of muon neutrinos on electrons. The analysis looked for an excess of elastic scattering events above the Standard Model prediction from which a limit on the neutrino magnetic could be set. In this thesis, we report an excess of 15.3 {+-} 6.6(stat){+-}4.1(syst) {nu}{sub {mu}e} events above the expected background. At 90% C.L., we derived a limit on the muon neutrino magnetic moment of 12.7 x 10{sup -10} {micro}{sub B}. The other analysis reported in this thesis is a measurement of charged current single pion production (CC{pi}{sup +}) to charged current quasi elastic (CCQE) interactions cross sections ratio. This measurement was performed with two different fitting algorithms and the results from both fitters are consistent with each other.

  17. Two-cascade magnetic field stabilizer on an installation for the measurement of the neutron electric dipole moment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A two-cascade magnetic field stabilizer for apparatus for the measurement of the neutron electric dipole moment (EDM) using ultracold neutrons was constructed and tested. Quantum cesium magnetometers (QCM) employing optical pumping and placed inside a multilayer magnetic screen were used as the magnetic field sensors. A static stabilization coefficient of 4 x 105 in the presence of magnetic noise of amplitude up to 50 nT was obtained using QCM employing the Ssub(z)-signal in the inner and outer cascades, their transfer ratios being 300 and 600, respectively. The mean square amplitude of the operating magnetic field fluctuations was 0.1 pT in the interval 10-4-10-2 Hz. Stabilization over a wider frequency band was obtained using QCM of the Ssub(z)-type in the inner cascade and of the Ssub(x)-type in the outer one. In particular, the mean square amplitude of the magnetic field fluctuations in the interval 0.1-1 Hz and 1-10 Hz were 1 pT and 15 pT, respectively. (orig.)

    We have synthesized transparent, conducting, paramagnetic stannate thin films via rare-earth doping of BaSnO{sub 3}. Gd{sup 3+} (4f{sup 7}) substitution on the Ba{sup 2+} site results in optical transparency in the visible regime, low resistivities, and high electron mobilities, along with a significant magnetic moment. Pulsed laser deposition was used to stabilize epitaxial Ba{sub 0.96}Gd{sub 0.04}SnO{sub 3} thin films on (001) SrTiO{sub 3} substrates, and compared with Ba{sub 0.96}La{sub 0.04}SnO{sub 3} and undoped BaSnO{sub 3} thin films. Gd as well as La doping schemes result in electron mobilities at room temperature that exceed those of conventional complex oxides, with values as high as 60 cm{sup 2}/V·s (n = 2.5 × 10{sup 20 }cm{sup −3}) and 30 cm{sup 2}/V·s (n = 1 × 10{sup 20 }cm{sup −3}) for La and Gd doping, respectively. The resistivity shows little temperature dependence across a broad temperature range, indicating that in both types of films the transport is not dominated by phonon scattering. Gd-doped BaSnO{sub 3} films have a strong magnetic moment of ∼7 μ{sub B}/Gd ion. Such an optically transparent conductor with localized magnetic moments may unlock opportunities for multifunctional devices in the design of next-generation displays and photovoltaics.

  20. (In-)Significance of the Anomalous Magnetic Moment of Charged Fermions for the Equation of State of a Magnetized and Dense Medium

    We investigate the effects of the anomalous magnetic moment (AMM) in the equation of state (EoS) of a system of charged fermions at finite density in the presence of a magnetic field. In the region of strong magnetic fields (eB>m^2) the AMM is found from the one-loop fermion self-energy. In contrast to the weak-field AMM found by Schwinger, in the strong magnetic field region the AMM depends on the Landau level and decreases with it. The effects of the AMM in the EoS of a dense medium are investigated at strong and weak fields using the appropriate AMM expression for each case. In contrast with what has been reported in other works, we find that the AMM of charged fermions makes no significant contribution to the EoS at any field value.

We consider such corrections and present a calculation of the four-loop light-by-light-type corrections where the external photon couples to a closed electron or muon loop. We perform an asymptotic expansion in the ratio of electron and muon mass and reduce the resulting integrals to master integrals which we evaluate using analytical and numerical methods. We confirm the results present in the literature which are based on different computational methods.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A simple formulation for calculating the magnetic field external to an extended nonpermeable conducting body due to thermal current fluctuations within the body is developed, and is applied to a recent experimental search for the atomic electric-dipole moment (EDM) of 199Hg. It is shown that the thermal fluctuation field is only slightly smaller in magnitude than other noise sources in that experiment. The formulation is extended to permeable bodies, and the implications for general EDM experiments are discussed. copyright 1999 The American Physical Society

    Trapped ultracold neutrons (UCN) have for many years been the mainstay of experiments to search for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron, a critical parameter in constraining scenarios of new physics beyond the Standard Model. Because their energies are so low, UCN preferentially populate the lower region of their physical enclosure, and do not sample uniformly the ambient magnetic field throughout the storage volume. This leads to a substantial increase in the rate of depolarization, as well as to shifts in the measured frequency of the stored neutrons. Consequences for EDM measurements are discussed.

    The anomalous magnetic moment of muon, $g-2$, is a very precisely measured quantity. However, the current measurement disagrees with standard model by about 3 standard deviations. Hadronic vacuum polarization and hadronic light by light are the two types of processes that contribute most to the theoretical uncertainty. I will describe how lattice methods are well-suited to provide a first-principle's result for the hadronic light by light contribution, the various numerical strategies that are presently being used to evaluate it, our current results and the important remaining challenges which must be overcome.

Summing over the infinite series composed by the KK towers, we verify the final results satisfying the decoupling theorem in the limit R−1 → ∞. For the compactification scale R−1 = 300 GeV, we obtain the electroweak radiative corrections from the KK modes to the muon MDM amount to 6.72 × 10−12 at one loop level

    Existence of collective effects in magnetic coupling in ionic solids is studied by mapping spin eigenstates of the Heisenberg and exact nonrelativistic Hamiltonians on cluster models representing KNiF3, K2NiF4, NiO, and La2CuO4. Ab initio techniques are used to estimate the Heisenberg constant J. For clusters with two magnetic centers, the values obtained are about the same for models having more magnetic centers. The absence of collective effects in J strongly suggests that magnetic interactions in this kind of ionic solids are genuinely local and entangle only the two magnetic centers involved.

    We describe a new technique (published in Phys. Rev. D89 114501) to determine the contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon coming from the hadronic vacuum polarisation using lattice QCD. Our method uses Pad\\'e approximants to reconstruct the Adler function from its derivatives at $q^2=0$. These are obtained simply and accurately from time-moments of the vector current-current correlator at zero spatial momentum. We test the method using strange quark correlators calculated on MILC Collaboration's $n_f = 2+1+1$ HISQ ensembles at multiple values of the lattice spacing, multiple volumes and multiple light sea quark masses (including physical pion mass configurations). We find the (connected) contribution to the anomalous moment from the strange quark vacuum polarisation to be $a^s_\\mu=53.41(59)\\times 10^{-10}$, and the contribution from charm quarks to be $a^c_\\mu=14.42(39)\\times 10^{-10}$ - 1% accuracy is achieved for the strange quark contribution.

    1988-01-01

    The problem of determining the forces and moments acting on a wind tunnel model suspended in a Magnetic Suspension and Balance System is addressed. Two calibration methods were investigated for three types of model cores, i.e., Alnico, Samarium-Cobalt, and a superconducting solenoid. Both methods involve calibrating the currents in the electromagnetic array against known forces and moments. The first is a static calibration method using calibration weights and a system of pulleys. The other method, dynamic calibration, involves oscillating the model and using its inertia to provide calibration forces and moments. Static calibration data, found to produce the most reliable results, is presented for three degrees of freedom at 0, 15, and -10 deg angle of attack. Theoretical calculations are hampered by the inability to represent iron-cored electromagnets. Dynamic calibrations, despite being quicker and easier to perform, are not as accurate as static calibrations. Data for dynamic calibrations at 0 and 15 deg is compared with the relevant static data acquired. Distortion of oscillation traces is cited as a major source of error in dynamic calibrations.

  11. Electric dipole and magnetic quadrupole moments of the W boson via a CP-violating HWW vertex in effective Lagrangians

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The possibility of nonnegligible W electric dipole (μ-tildeW) and magnetic quadrupole (Q-tildeW) moments induced by the most general HWW vertex is examined via the effective Lagrangian technique. It is assumed that new heavy fermions induce an anomalous CP-odd component of the HWW vertex, which can be parametrized by an SUL(2)xUY(1)-invariant dimension-six operator. This anomalous contribution, when combined with the standard model CP-even contribution, leads to CP-odd electromagnetic properties of the W boson, which are characterized by the form factors Δκ-tilde and ΔQ-tilde. It is found that Δκ-tilde is divergent, whereas ΔQ-tilde is finite, which reflects the fact that the latter cannot be generated at the one-loop level in any renormalizable theory. Assuming reasonable values for the unknown parameters, we found that μ-tildeW∼3-6x10-21 e·cm, which is 8 orders of magnitude larger than the SM prediction and close to the upper bound derived from the neutron electric dipole moment. The estimated size of the somewhat less-studied Q-tildeW moment is of the order of -10-36 e·cm2, which is 15 orders of magnitude above the SM contribution

    The magnetization reversal of a ferromagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticle with a volume of the order of several thousands of cubic nanometers under the influence of spin-polarized current has been investigated on a high-vacuum scanning tunneling microscope, where one of the electrodes is a magnetized iron wire needle and the second electrode is a ferromagnetic nanoparticle on a graphite substrate. The measured threshold current of magnetization reversal, i.e., the lowest value of the current corresponding to the magnetization reversal, is found to be I thresh ≈ 9 nA. A change in the magnetization of a nanoparticle is revealed using the giant magnetoresistance effect, i.e., the dependence of the weak polarized current ( I < I thresh) on the relative orientation of the magnetizations of the electrodes.

  13. Bound states, resonances, and symmetries of a neutral Dirac particle with anomalous magnetic moment, coupled to a fixed monopole

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For the system consisting of a neutral Dirac particle with anomalous magnetic moment, interacting with a fixed magnetic monopole, zero-energy bound states are constructed for each possible value of the total angular momentum. Results of Kazama and Yang for the charge--monopole system are used to deduce the existence of other bound states for this system, when the mass of the bound particle is nonzero. In the zero-mass case, there are no other bound states, but there are resonant states, and these are determined exactly. A noncompact, so(3,2) symmetry algebra of the zero-energy bound states is given for the finite-mass case and for the zero-mass case. In each case the infinite number of such states is associated with an irreducible Majorana representation of the algebra

AC susceptibility and magnetization show paramagnetic behavior down to 6.5 K, with the values θ=-5(5) K and μeff=7.7(1) μB, compatible with those of the end compounds, and indicate possible cooperative phenomena at lower temperatures. The observed paramagnetism, at variance with antiferromagnetic ordering in (Pr0.50Dy0.50)Ni2B2C, is attributed to a directional frustration of the magnetic moments on the (U,Dy) site

    Buffer-free and epitaxial α-Fe and α′-Fe{sub 8}N{sub x} thin films have been grown by RF magnetron sputtering onto MgO (100) substrates. The film thicknesses were determined with high accuracy by evaluating the Kiessig fringes of X-ray reflectometry measurements allowing a precise volume estimation. A gradual increase of the nitrogen content in the plasma led to an expansion of the iron bcc unit cell along the [001] direction resulting finally in a tetragonal distortion of about 10% corresponding to the formation of α′-Fe{sub 8}N. The α-Fe lattice expansion was accompanied by an increase in magnetic moment to 2.61 ± 0.06μ{sub B} per Fe atom and a considerable increase in anisotropy. These experiments show that—without requiring any additional ordering of the nitrogen atoms—the lattice expansion of α-Fe itself is the origin of the increased magnetic moment in α′-Fe{sub 8}N.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A search of neutrino magnetic moments was carried out at the Kuo-Sheng nuclear power station at a distance of 28 m from the 2.9 GW reactor core. With a high purity germanium detector of mass 1.06 kg surrounded by scintillating NaI(Tl) and CsI(Tl) crystals as anti-Compton detectors, a detection threshold of 5 keV and a background level of 1 kg-1 keV-1 day-1 near threshold were achieved. Details of the reactor neutrino source, experimental hardware, background understanding, and analysis methods are presented. Based on 570.7 and 127.8 days of Reactor ON and OFF data, respectively, at an average Reactor ON electron antineutrino flux of 6.4x1012 cm-2 s-1, the limit on the neutrino magnetic moments of μνe-11μB at 90% confidence level was derived. Indirect bounds on the νe radiative decay lifetimes were inferred

  2. Anomalous magnetic moments in Fe-Pt and Fe-Pd Invar alloys under high pressure

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetization measurements have been carried out for disordered Fe72Pt28, Fe66Pd34, and Fe68Pd32 Invar alloys under high pressure using a technique combining a pressure-clamp-type Drickamer cell and a pulse magnet. In Fe72Pt28 at room temperature, the magnetization decreased rapidly with increasing pressure up to 2.5 GPa, but above 2.5 GPa the rate of decrease became small and remained at a small value up to 5.6 GPa. In Fe-Pd Invar alloys at room temperature, the magnetization decreased linearly with increasing pressure. But, at 4.2 K, the change of magnetization with pressure was small in Fe66Pd34, which means that Fe66Pd34 behaves as a strong ferromagnet

    Ferrofluids belonging to the series, NiFe1−Fe2O4 and ZnFe1−Fe2O4, were synthesized using cold co-precipitation. Liquid films of these ferrofluids were prepared by encapsulating the ferrofluids in between two optically smooth and ultrasonically cleaned glass plates. Magnetic field induced laser transmission through these ferrofluid films has been investigated. Magnetic field values can be calibrated in terms of output laser power in the low field region in which the variation is linear. This set up can be used as a cheap optical gaussmeter in the low field regime. Using the same set-up, the saturation magnetization of the sample used can also be calculated with a sample that is pre-characterized. Hence both magnetization of the sample, as well as applied magnetic field can be sensed and calculated with a precalibrated sample.

  4. Effective field theories of baryons and mesons, or, what do quarks do?

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis is an attempt to understand the properties of the protons, pions and other hadrons in terms of their fundamental building blocks. In the first chapter the author reviews several of the approaches that have already been developed. The Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model offers the classic example of a derivation of meson properties from a quark Lagrangian. The chiral quark model encodes much of the intuition acquired in recent decades. The author also discusses the non-linear sigma model, the Skyrme model, and the constituent quark model, which is one of the oldest and most successful models. In the constituent quark model, the constituent quark appears to be different from the current quark that appears in the fundamental QCD Lagrangian. Recently it was proposed that the constituent quark is a topological soliton. In chapter 2 the author investigates this soliton, calculating its mass, radius, magnetic moment, color magnetic moment, and spin structure function. Within the approximations used, the magnetic moments and spin structure function cannot simultaneously be made to agree with the constituent quark model. In chapter 3 the author uses a different plan of attack. Rather than trying to model the constituents of the baryon, he begins with an effective field theory of baryons and mesons, with couplings and masses that are simply determined phenomenologically. Meson loop corrections to baryon axial currents are then computed in the 1/N expansion. It is already known that the one-loop corrections are suppressed by a factor 1/N; here it is shown that the two-loop corrections are suppressed by 1/N2. To leading order, these corrections are exactly the same as would be calculated in the constituent quark model. This method therefore offers a different approach to the constituent quark

    We show that maximally helical hypermagnetic fields produced during pseudoscalar inflation can generate the observed baryon asymmetry of the universe via the B+L anomaly in the Standard Model. We find that most of the parameter space of pseudoscalar inflation that explains the cosmological data leads to baryon overproduction, hence the models of natural inflation are severely constrained. We also point out a connection between the baryon number and topology of the relic magnetic fields. Both the magnitude and sign of magnetic helicity can be detected in future diffuse gamma ray data. This will be a smoking gun evidence for a link between inflation and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe.

  9. Phenomenological sizes of confinement regions in baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Standard order of magnitude estimates from QCD indicate that the radius of the quark-gluon core in the nucleon is Λ-1QCD > or approx. 1 fm. However, in work with the chiral bag model, we have found that the effective confinement size for low energy reactions can be as small as ≅ 1/2 fm or smaller. This shrinking of the effective confinement size has been attributed to the pressure of the pion cloud surrounding the quark core. The concept of confinement size is evidently subtle in light-quark systems, due to the chiral vacuum structure. This is indicated by the 'Cheshire Cat' phenomenon, in which physical observables tend to be insensitive to the bag radius R. We suggest that when strange quarks are present, a qualitative change occurs in the Cheshire Cat picture; in particular, we propose that strangeness provides an obstruction to this picture. We present a phenomenological indication that when strange quarks are present, the bag radius R is frozen at a value substantially larger than 0.5 fm by as much as a factor of two. Roughly speaking, the Cheshire Cat picture emerges from a near cancellation between repulsive quark kinetic and attractive pion-cloud energies in the case of the nucleon. In the Λ and Σ particles, however, replacement of one up or down quark by a strange quark removes ≅ 1/Nc of the attraction from the coupling of the quarks to the pion cloud. This upsets the balance needed for the Cheshire Cat phenomenon and makes larger strange baryons more favorable energetically than the 0.5 fm ones appropriate for pure u- and d-systems. We find that magnetic moments of strange baryons favor a bag radius R ≅ 1.1 fm. We find that the excited states of the Λ-hyperons favor similarly large bag radii. Somewhat less convincingly, we argue that - due to perturbative effects - the bag radius appropriate to the Δ(1232) lies intermediate between that of the nucleon and of the strange baryons. (orig.)

    The Surrounding Field Compensation (SFC) system described in this work is installed around the four-layer Mu-metal magnetic shield of the neutron electric dipole moment spectrometer located at the Paul Scherrer Institute. The SFC system reduces the DC component of the external magnetic field by a factor of about 20. Within a control volume of approximately 2.5m x 2.5m x 3m disturbances of the magnetic field are attenuated by factors of 5 to 50 at a bandwidth from $10^{-3}$ Hz up to 0.5 Hz, which corresponds to integration times longer than several hundreds of seconds and represent the important timescale for the nEDM measurement. These shielding factors apply to random environmental noise from arbitrary sources. This is achieved via a proportional-integral feedback stabilization system that includes a regularized pseudoinverse matrix of proportionality factors which correlates magnetic field changes at all sensor positions to current changes in the SFC coils.

    The mechanisms that give rise to the sun's large-scale poloidal magnetic field are explored in the framework of the Babcock-Leighton (BL) model. It is shown that there are in general two quite distinct contributions to the generation of the 'alpha effect': the first is associated with the axial tilts of the bipolar magnetic regions as they erupt at the surface, while the second arises through the interaction between diffusion and flow as the magnetic flux is dispersed over the surface. The general relationship between flux transport and the BL dynamo is discussed.

    Co-Fe alloy films have such properties as high saturation magnetization, high Curie temperature and low coercive force. It is of importance to study the origin of high saturation magnetization in these alloys. In this paper, we study the spin (ms) and orbital moments (mo) of Fe and Co in the Co0.9Fe0.1 film by using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) and SQUID magnetometry. The ms and mo for Co are 1.58 and 0.31μB, and for Fe are 1.63 and 0.36 μB respectively. The average magnetic moment (1.90μB) determined by XMCD is in agreement with that obtained from SQUID measurements. The total magnetic moment ratio of Fe to Co is 10.5:89.5, while the ratio of the spin to orbital moment is 83.4:16.6. Considering the separation of the spin and orbital moment, an outcome of mFe-spin : mFe-orbit : mCo-spin : mCo-orbit = 8.6:1.9:74.8:14.7 is obtained.

  14. First-principle electronic structure calculations for magnetic moment in iron-based superconductors: An LSDA + negative U study

    In order to resolve a discrepancy of the magnetic moment on Fe between the experimental and calculation results, we perform first-principle electronic structure calculations for iron-based superconductors LaFeAsO1-x and LiFeAs also show similar SDW. So far, the first-principle calculations on LaFeAsO actually predicted the SDW state as a ground state. However, the predicted magnetic moment (∼2 μB) per an Fe atom is much larger than the observed one (∼0.35 μB) in experiments [2,4]. The authors suggested that the discrepancy can be resolved by expanding U into a negative U range within LSDA + U framework. In this paper, we revisit the discrepancy and clarify why the negative correction is essential in these compounds. See Ref. [5] for the details of calculation data by LSDA + negative U. In the first-principle calculation on compounds including transition metals, the total energy is frequently corrected by “LSDA + U” approach. The parameter U is theoretically re-expressed as U(≡U-J), where U is the on-site Coulomb repulsion (Hubbard U) and J is the atomic-orbital intra-exchange energy (Hund’s coupling parameter) [6]. The parameter U employed in the electronic structure calculations is usually positive. The positivity promotes the localized character of d-electrons and enhances the magnetic moment in the cases of magnetically ordered compounds. Normally, this positive correction successfully works. In choosing the parameter, one can principally extend the parameter U range to a negative region. The negative case [7] is not popular, but it can occur in the following two cases [8]: (i) the Hubbard U becomes negative and (ii) the intra-exchange J is effectively larger than the Hubbard U. The case (i) has been suggested by many authors based on various theoretical considerations. Here, we note that U should be estimated once screening effects on the long-range Coulomb interaction are taken into account. In fact, small U has been reported [9]. Thus, when the

    Magnetization measurements have been carried out for disordered Fe sub 7 sub 2 Pt sub 2 sub 8 , Fe sub 6 sub 6 Pd sub 3 sub 4 , and Fe sub 6 sub 8 Pd sub 3 sub 2 Invar alloys under high pressure using a technique combining a pressure-clamp-type Drickamer cell and a pulse magnet. In Fe sub 7 sub 2 Pt sub 2 sub 8 at room temperature, the magnetization decreased rapidly with increasing pressure up to 2.5 GPa, but above 2.5 GPa the rate of decrease became small and remained at a small value up to 5.6 GPa. In Fe-Pd Invar alloys at room temperature, the magnetization decreased linearly with increasing pressure. But, at 4.2 K, the change of magnetization with pressure was small in Fe sub 6 sub 6 Pd sub 3 sub 4 , which means that Fe sub 6 sub 6 Pd sub 3 sub 4 behaves as a strong ferromagnet.

    The higher order moments of the net-baryon distributions in relativistic heavy ion collisions are useful probes for the QCD critical point and fluctuations. We study the net-proton distributions and their moments in a simple model which considers the baryon stopping and pair production effects in the processes. It is shown that a single emission source model can explain the experimental data well. Centrality and energy dependence of the distributions and higher moments is discussed.

    The cryoEDM neutron electric dipole moment experiment requires a SQUID magnetometry system with pick-up loops inside a magnetically shielded volume connected to SQUID sensors by long (up to 2 m) twisted-wire pairs (TWPs). These wires run outside the main shield, and therefore must run through superconducting capillaries to screen unwanted magnetic pick-up. We show that the average measured transverse magnetic pick-up of a set of lengths of TWPs is equivalent to a loop area of 5.0×10{sup −6} m{sup 2}/m, or 14 twists per metre. From this we set the requirement that the magnetic shielding factor of the superconducting capillaries used in the cryoEDM system must be greater than 8.0×10{sup 4}. The shielding factor—the ratio of the signal picked-up by an unshielded TWP to that induced in a shielded TWP—was measured for a selection of superconducting capillaries made from solder wire. We conclude the transverse shielding factor of a uniform capillary is greater than 10{sup 7}. The measured pick-up was equal to, or less than that due to direct coupling to the SQUID sensor (measured without any TWP attached). We show that discontinuities in the capillaries substantially impair the magnetic shielding, yet if suitably repaired, this can be restored to the shielding factor of an unbroken capillary. We have constructed shielding assemblies for cryoEDM made from lengths of single core and triple core solder capillaries, joined by a shielded Pb cylinder, incorporating a heater to heat the wires above the superconducting transition as required.

    2016-03-01

    We have investigated the effect of epitaxial strain on the magnetic properties and B -site cation ordering in multiferroic Bi2FeCrO6 (001) thin films using a density-functional theory approach. We find that in thin films with rock-salt ordering of Fe and Cr the ground state is characterized by C-type antiferromagnetic (AFM) order. This is in contrast to the bulk form of the material, which was predicted to be a ferrimagnet with G-type AFM order. Furthermore, the cation-ordered thin films undergo a transition with epitaxial strain from C- to A-type AFM order. Other magnetic orders appear as thermally accessible excited states. We also find that B -site cation-disordered structures are more stable in coherent epitaxial strains, thereby explaining the lowered magnetic moments observed in these samples at room temperature. Strain varies both the sign and strength of the Fe-Cr superexchange coupling, resulting in a very interesting phase diagram for Bi2FeCrO6 thin films.

    Complex ac susceptibility, χ =χ'-iχ'', measurements of the clathrate compound Pr3Pd20Ge6 were performed in static fields up to 10 mT for H ∥[001] and at temperatures down to 500 μK. Praseodymium (Pr) nuclear magnetic moments at the 8c site, where quadrupole moments of 4f electrons order at TQ1=250 mK, were found to order antiferromagnetically at 9 mK, as shown by a peak in χ' and a substantial increase in thermal relaxation time. The large enhancement factor (1+K8c) obtained by calculation of the hyperfine-enhanced nuclear susceptibility of Pr at the 8c site accounts for the high transition temperature of Pr nuclear magnetic moments and the large χ' below 30 mK. From analysis of the crystalline electric field and the mean-field approximation, we conclude that a χ peak at 77 mK can be ascribed to an antiferromagnetic ordering of magnetic moments of 4f electrons at the 4a site. We found that nuclear and f-electron moments order separately on two sublattices in this compound. The temperature and magnetic field dependence of χ' and χ'' between 30 and 60 mK are discussed in terms of dissipation phenomena.

  20. Extracting the Omega- electric quadrupole moment from lattice QCD data

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    G. Ramalho, M.T. Pena

    2011-03-01

    The Omega- has an extremely long lifetime, and is the most stable of the baryons with spin 3/2. Therefore the Omega- magnetic moment is very accurately known. Nevertheless, its electric quadrupole moment was never measured, although estimates exist in different formalisms. In principle, lattice QCD simulations provide at present the most appropriate way to estimate the Omega- form factors, as function of the square of the transferred four-momentum, Q2, since it describes baryon systems at the physical mass for the strange quark. However, lattice QCD form factors, and in particular GE2, are determined at finite Q2 only, and the extraction of the electric quadrupole moment, Q_Omega= GE2(0) e/(2 M_Omega), involves an extrapolation of the numerical lattice results. In this work we reproduce the lattice QCD data with a covariant spectator quark model for Omega- which includes a mixture of S and two D states for the relative quark-diquark motion. Once the model is calibrated, it is used to determine Q_Omega. Our prediction is Q_Omega= (0.96 +/- 0.02)*10^(-2) efm2 [GE2(0)=0.680 +/- 0.012].
