    2014-01-01

    A study of the flavor-changing neutral current radiative $B^{\\pm} \\to K^{\\pm}\\pi^{\\mp}\\pi^{\\pm}\\gamma$ decays performed using data collected in proton-proton collisions with the LHCb detector at $7$ and $8\\,$TeV center-of-mass energies is presented. In this sample, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3\\,\\text{fb}^{-1}$, nearly $14\\,000$ signal events are reconstructed and selected, containing all possible intermediate resonances with a $K^{\\pm}\\pi^{\\mp}\\pi^{\\pm}$ final state in the $[1.1, 1.9]$\\,GeV/$c^{2}$ mass range. The distribution of the angle of the photon direction with respect to the plane defined by the final-state hadrons in their rest frame is studied in intervals of $K^{\\pm}\\pi^{\\mp}\\pi^{\\pm}$ mass and the asymmetry between the number of signal events found on each side of the plane is obtained. The first direct observation of the photon polarization in the $b \\to s\\gamma$ transition is reported with a significance of $5.2\\,\\sigma$.

    We have measured for the first time the asymmetry of the cross section for the reaction ..gamma..p..--> delta../sup + +/..pi../sup -/ on polarized protons. The measurements were made at E/sub ..gamma../ = 660 MeV in the range of pion emission angles 45--120/sup 0/ c.m.s. The experimental data obtained are compared with the theoretical predictions.

  3. Polarization of migrating monocytic cells is independent of PI 3-kinase activity.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Migration of mammalian cells is a complex cell type and environment specific process. Migrating hematopoietic cells assume a rapid amoeboid like movement when exposed to gradients of chemoattractants. The underlying signaling mechanisms remain controversial with respect to localization and distribution of chemotactic receptors within the plasma membrane and the role of PI 3-kinase activity in cell polarization. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We present a novel model for the investigation of human leukocyte migration. Monocytic THP-1 cells transfected with the alpha(2A-adrenoceptor (alpha(2AAR display comparable signal transduction responses, such as calcium mobilization, MAP-kinase activation and chemotaxis, to the noradrenaline homologue UK 14'304 as when stimulated with CCL2, which binds to the endogenous chemokine receptor CCR2. Time-lapse video microscopy reveals that chemotactic receptors remain evenly distributed over the plasma membrane and that their internalization is not required for migration. Measurements of intramolecular fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET of alpha(2AAR-YFP/CFP suggest a uniform activation of the receptors over the entire plasma membrane. Nevertheless, PI 3-kinase activation is confined to the leading edge. When reverting the gradient of chemoattractant by moving the dispensing micropipette, polarized monocytes--in contrast to neutrophils--rapidly flip their polarization axis by developing a new leading edge at the previous posterior side. Flipping of the polarization axis is accompanied by re-localization of PI-3-kinase activity to the new leading edge. However, reversal of the polarization axis occurs in the absence of PI 3-kinase activation. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Accumulation and internalization of chemotactic receptors at the leading edge is dispensable for cell migration. Furthermore, uniformly distributed receptors allow the cells to rapidly reorient and adapt to changes in the

    We have measured the polarization transfer asymmetries of the reaction p vectorp{yields}d vector{pi}{sup +} from the longitudinally polarized proton to the sideways polarized deuteron for deuteron center-of-mass angles from 25deg to 140deg. Our longitudinal to sideways polarization transfer data are best represented by the partial-wave amplitude fits of Bugg et al. while several model calculations are only in qualitative agreement.

  5. Single-spin asymmetry in electro-production of {pi}{sup +} {pi}{sup -} pairs from a transversely polarized proton target at the HERMES experiment

    In this thesis, the measurement of an azimuthal amplitude of the asymmetry in the lepto-production of {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} pairs at the HERMES experiment is reported. The experiment was carried out at DESY in Germany, utilizing the longitudinally polarized 27.6 GeV electron/positron beam of the HERA storage ring in combination with a longitudinally or transversely polarized gaseous target internal to the beam pipe. For the present measurement, the transversely polarized proton target was used and the beam polarization was averaged out in order to measure the asymmetry A{sub UT}. A Ring Imaging Cerenkov (RICH) detector allows the precise identification of pions, kaons and protons over essentially the entire momentum range of the experiment. The asymmetry A{sub UT} for {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} pair production was measured for the first time in the world by HERMES. The amplitudes are extracted as functions of different kinematic variables, which can facilitate the comparison with the theoretical models and the extraction of transversity with combination of the measurement of the dihadron fragmentation function.

  6. Measurement of polarization observables in the reaction {gamma}p{yields} p{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} using linearly polarized photons with the CBELSA/TAPS experiment

    The spectrum and the properties of baryon resonances can be studied using photons with energies appropriate to excite baryonic states. Double meson photoproduction allows access to cascading resonance decays via other excited states. Also, at higher energies the importance of the double meson photoproduction increases due to higher cross-sections in comparison to single meson photoproduction. To study baryon resonances, the measurement of polarization observables as well as the measurement of differential cross-sections plays a very important role. In this work the three-body polarization observables I{sup s}, I{sup c} and the respective twobody asymmetry {Sigma} were measured for the reaction {gamma}p {yields} p{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} in an incoming photon energy range of E{sub {gamma}} = 970 - 1650 MeV. The data were acquired with the CBELSA/TAPS experiment located at the ELSA accelerator in Bonn, using a linearly polarized photon beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. The observables I{sup s} and I{sup c} which occur in two-meson final states are measured for the first time in the reaction {gamma}p {yields} p{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}. The corresponding two-body asymmetry {Sigma} is measured in an extended energy range in comparison to already existing data. A comparison with theoretical models shows that the polarization observables provide valuable input to study resonance contributions and their decay modes. The D{sub 33}(1700) {yields} {Delta}{pi} decay is studied based on the comparison of the Bonn-Gatchina Partial Wave Analysis (PWA) predictions with the data. Furthermore, a comparison of the data with the Bonn-Gatchina PWA and the Fix isobar model predictions allows to distinguish between these two models. Additionally, band-like structures and peaks are observed in the mass ranges of {Delta}(1232), D{sub 13}(1520), F{sub 15}(1680), f{sub 0}(980) and f{sub 2}(1270) in the according Dalitz plots and invariant mass distributions.

    The exclusive channel polarized proton(polarized e,e prime p)pi0 was studied in the first and second nucleon resonance regions in the Q2 range from 0.187 to 0.770 GeV2 at Jefferson Lab using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS). Longitudinal target and beam-target asymmetries were extracted over a large range of center-of-mass angles of the pi0 and compared to the unitary isobar model MAID, the dynamic model by Sato and Lee, and the dynamic model DMT. A strong sensitivity to individual models was observed, in particular for the target asymmetry and in the higher invariant mass region. This data set, once included in the global fits of the above models, is expected to place strong constraints on the electrocoupling amplitudes A_{1/2} and S_{1/2} for the Roper resonance N(1400)P11, and the N(1535)S11 and N(1520)D13 states.

    The theory that describes the interaction of quarks is Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), but how quarks are bound inside a nucleon is not yet well understood. Pion photoproduction experiments reveal important information about the nucleon excited states and the dynamics of the quarks within it and thus provide a useful tool to study QCD. Detailed information about this reaction can be obtained in experiments that utilize polarized photon beams and polarized targets. Pion photoproduction in the γρ -> π0ρ reaction has been measured in the FROST experiment at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. In this experiment circularly polarized photons with electron-beam energies up to 3.082 GeV impinged on a transversely polarized frozen-spin target. Final-state protons were detected in the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer. Results of the polarization observables T and F have been extracted. The data generally agree with predictions of present partial wave analyses, but also show marked differences. The data will constrain further partial wave analyses and improve the extraction of proton resonance properties.

    The Collider-Accelerator Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory is building a high-brightness 500 mA capable Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) as one of its main R&D thrusts towards eRHIC, the polarized electron - hadron collider as an upgrade of the operating RHIC facility. The ERL is in final assembly stages, with injection commisioning starting in October 2012. The objective of this ERL is to serve as a platform for R&D into high current ERL, in particular issues of halo generation and control, Higher-Order Mode (HOM) issues, coherent emissions for the beam and high-brightness, high-power beam generation and preservation. The R&D ERL features a superconducting laser-photocathode RF gun with a high quantum efficiency photoccathode served with a load-lock cathode delivery system, a highly damped 5-cell accelerating cavity, a highly flexible single-pass loop and a comprehensive system of beam instrumentation. In this ICFA Beam Dynamics Newsletter article we will describe the ERL in a degree of detail that is not usually found in regular publications. We will discuss the various systems of the ERL, following the electrons from the photocathode to the beam dump, cover the control system, machine protection etc and summarize with the status of the ERL systems.

    The polarization parameter for the interactions anti pp ..-->.. ..pi../sup -/..pi../sup +/ and anti pp ..-->.. K/sup -/K/sup +/ was measured over essentially the full angular range at 11 momenta between 1.0 and 2.2 GeV/c. A proton target polarized perpendicular to the scattering plane was used. The experiment measured the angles and momenta of both outgoing particles using wire spark chambers and the field of the polarized target magnet. Between 1000 and 5300 ..pi../sup -/..pi../sup +/ events, and 140 and 1300 K/sup -/K/sup +/ events, were measured at each momentum. As a check, one obtained differential cross sections for anti pp ..-->.. ..pi../sup -/..pi../sup +/ which are in excellent agreement with previous results. The polarizations for both channels are very large and positive over much of the angular range. Preliminary results of a fit to the cross sections and asymmetries for anti pp ..-->.. ..pi../sup -/..pi../sup +/ show strong evidence for three new resonances at 2.14, 2.36, and 2.40 GeV/c/sup 2/.

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter contains the report of the 12th SSDL Scientific Committee (SSC) Meeting held at the IAEA Headquarters from 7-10 March 2006. The SSC conducts biennial reviews and evaluations of the Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics activities. Following each meeting, the report of the SSC is addressed to the Directors General of the IAEA and WHO and circulated subsequently to Member States through this Newsletter. The report is pending acceptance by the IAEA and WHO. The second article is a brief note on the polarity of electrometers. The IAEA has received many queries from SSDLs on the definitions used by manufacturers of ionization chambers concerning the sign of the polarity of the chamberelectrometer connecting systems. The lack of clarity has also induced mistakes in some dosimetry comparison exercises where inconsistent polarities were used by some participants. It is hoped that this note will help clarify the issue. The readers were informed in the SSDL Newsletter No. 51 on the extension of the calibration facilities at Seibersdorf. It is a pleasure to announce that less than one year later, the construction of the new wing was completed. The inauguration ceremony was held on June 1 2006

    Seeds of Arctium lappa, containing arctigenin and its glycoside arctiin as main constituents, have been used as a diuretic, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying agent in Chinese traditional medicine. In our preliminary study, arctigenin inhibited IKKβ and NF-κB activation in peptidoglycan (PGN)- or lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced peritoneal macrophages. To understand the anti-inflammatory effect of arctigenin, we investigated its anti-inflammatory effect in LPS-stimulated peritoneal macrophages and on LPS-induced systemic inflammation as well as 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis in mice. Arctigenin inhibited LPS-increased IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α expression in LPS-stimulated peritoneal macrophages, but increased LPS-reduced IL-10 and CD204 expression. Arctigenin inhibited LPS-induced PI3K, AKT and IKKβ phosphorylation, but did not suppress LPS-induced IRAK-1 phosphorylation. However, arctigenin did not inhibit NF-κB activation in LPS-stimulated PI3K siRNA-treated peritoneal macrophages. Arctigenin suppressed the binding of p-PI3K antibody and the nucleus translocation of NF-κB p65 in LPS-stimulated peritoneal macrophages. Arctigenin suppressed blood IL-1β and TNF-α level in mice systemically inflamed by intraperitoneal injection of LPS. Arctigenin also inhibited colon shortening, macroscopic scores and myeloperoxidase activity in TNBS-induced colitic mice. Arctigenin inhibited TNBS-induced IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-6 expression, as well as PI3K, AKT and IKKβ phosphorylation and NF-κB activation in mice, but increased IL-10 and CD204 expression. However, it did not affect IRAK-1 phosphorylation. Based on these findings, arctigenin may ameliorate inflammatory diseases, such as colitis, by inhibiting PI3K and polarizing M1 macrophages to M2-like macrophages. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

  6. INDAG newsletter. No. 4

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2004-09-01

    INDAG, so far, has been the only IAEA group to publish its Newsletter regularly before each General Conference Meeting. It is no doubt mainly this motivation for communication with complete transparency, coupled with expert advice, that led the independent panel for the evaluation of IAEA's nuclear desalination activities to highly commend INDAG for its actions. This time, INDAG brings you some concrete results of the International cooperation activities, strongly supported by INDAG and carried out under the aegis of IAEA's INT/4/134 programme: Thus, the Kalpakkam nuclear desalination complex in India is nearly completed, the Pakistani project for desalination with the Karachi nuclear power plant is now well on the way. At the same time, two technical and economic feasibility studies of nuclear desalination have also been completed. The final report on the feasibility of SMART + MED based integrated desalination system for the Madura island in Indonesia (Collaboration between South Korea and Indonesia) has already been published. That from the French -Tunisian collaboration, known as the TUNDESAL project, would come out as this Newsletter reaches you. As INDAG has consistently tried to communicate, these two studies have independently concluded that nuclear desalination is indeed a viable option for the future. The CRP on the economic assessment of site-specific cases, launched after INDAG's recommendation, continues to move forward. It was indeed the revised new models in DEEP that permitted the comprehensive economic evaluation of desalination costs in the two international feasibility studies

  7. Newsletter '77 in stereology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ondracek, G.

    1977-12-01

    There are three groups of contributions forming the present Newsletter in Stereology which are such of theoretical type, stereological activities in bio-sciences and quatitative image analysis in materials science. The report is introduced by two papers treating theoretical problems as the definition of particle size based on the total curvature and the definition of pattern recognition categories. It than follows a summarizing description and comparison of alternative techniques used to measure and conclude stereological parameters in bio-sciences. The discussion includes the sample preparation, semi- and complete automatic measuring procedures as well as the computation of primary data. The biological part ends by considering the use of those quantitative microscopical methods to investigate and classify foreign compounds inside the human liver stereologically. The materials science part reports about tests made on steel specimens to evaluate the accuracy of automatic microstructural analyses and about the use of image 'erosion' and 'dilatation' to measure microstructural parameters automatically. The last subject is part of a serie on morphology in quantitative metallography started in the previous Newsletter '76. The last paper on materials sciences considers the use of stereology and microstructural analysis in respect to a quality control, choosing WC-Co hardmetals as an example, where stereologically defined microstructural parameters do not serve only to describe microstructures quantitatively but also provide a usefull tool to determine properties indirectly.

  9. INDAG newsletter. No. 3

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2003-09-01

    This third issue of the Newsletter is characterised by the key words 'demonstration' and 'scientific maturity' as opposed to the 'winds of change' in the second issue. Nuclear desalination studies in the INDAG member countries have moved from the generic studies to site-specific (e.g. the CRP on economics) studies and now to demonstration projects. The demonstration project at KALPAKKAM (INDIA) is now going on at full speed. That of KANNUP (PAKISTAN) will begin soon. A Similar project for the MEDITERRANEAN region is currently under consideration in France. Similarly, in its latest call for proposals for its 6th Framework programme, the European Commission has launched an ambitious programme of research and technological development in the field of Management of scarce water resources and mitigation technologies. This programme specifically calls for research in desalination

The objective of this CRP is to develop specific guidance for the SSDLs to establish Quality Systems and to prepare appropriate Quality Manuals. The second article reports on the results of the 1997 intercomparison of ionization chamber calibration factors in the IAEA/WHO Network of SSDLs. Since January 1998, this service is offered to all Network members. The third article reports on a national quality audit programme for radiotherapy centers in Iran. This programme has been set up and run by the SSDL in Iran. It is worthwhile mentioning that many SSDL Network members have now started to run quality audit programmes for end users in their countries

The Charter follows a recommendation of the SSDL Scientific Committee during its Seventh Meeting, held at the IAEA Headquarters from 30 September to 4 October 1997, that the Agency develops an SSDL Charter detailing the responsibilities and tasks of the SSDL Network members. As a follow-up of this recommendation, a Consultant Meeting on this task was organized and held at the Agency in May 1997. For the development of the Charter, the consultants reviewed the IAEA publication ''Secondary Standard Dosimetry Laboratory: Development and trends'' (1985) and took into account the past 20 years experience of the Agency

  13. SSDL newsletter. No. 43

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2000-07-01

    The main article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter deals with the calibration of low energy photon sources and beta-ray brachytherapy sources. It contains guidelines to SSDLs and hospital physicists for the calibration of these sources. The report has been prepared in close collaboration with the ICRU Report Committee on this subject, who is also planning to publish a report on the calibration of these types of sources. During the sixties and seventies, the IAEA published documents on computerized radiotherapy dose calculations, such as TRS-8 on Single-Field Isodose Charts for High-Energy Radiation (1962) and the 4 Volumes of the ''Atlas of Radiation Dose Distributions'' (1965-1972). During the eighties and nineties, no document was published by the IAEA in this field, even if major developments had occurred in that period. Specifically, fast computers and powerful Monte Carlo systems and application codes, addressed to radiotherapy treatment planning, were developed with the aim to provide sufficiently accurate dose calculations and great increases in speed. A consultants' meeting was held at the IAEA with a group of experts in the field to discuss current needs and trends, and to make recommendations to the IAEA. The consultants emphasized the need for the IAEA to play an active role in this field. Their full report is the second article of this Newsletter. Four new SSDLs have recently joined our Network: these are from Germany, Greece, Ethiopia and Vietnam. They have been added to the database of the IAEA/WHO Network of SSDLs and are listed on pages 44-45 of Member Laboratories

    2001-01-01

    The first article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter is the report of the 9th SSDL Scientific Committee Meeting held from 13-17 November 2000. The editor wishes to draw the readers' attention to recommendations xviii, xxi and xxvi of the Scientific Committee, to evaluate the potential needs of SSDLs for the audit and calibration services in diagnostic radiology, brachytherapy and nuclear medicine metrology. For that purpose, the Secretariat of the IAEA/WHO network is preparing a survey form to be sent to all SSDLs of the network. It is hoped that the network members will fill in the questionnaire and return it to the Secretariat as soon as possible. The second article is a technical note prepared by the staff of the Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics Section that deals with the ''effect of humidity on measurements with a well type chamber''. Those SSDL members possessing a well type chamber are encouraged to conduct similar frequent constancy checks and submit their contributions to the editor for publication in a forthcoming issue of the Newsletter. Contributions will be duly acknowledged. The third article is a report of the Second Research Co-ordination Meeting (RCM) for the Co-ordinated Research Project (CRP E2.40.07) on ''the development of a quality assurance programme for radiation therapy dosimetry in developing countries'', held at IAEA Headquarters from 4-8 December 2000. The aim of the CRP is to establish national Quality Assurance (QA) networks for external quality audits for radiotherapy hospitals in developing countries. This is done by setting up national External Audit Groups (EAGs) with laboratory backup for operating TLD audits for radiotherapy dosimetry. The main results achieved under this CRP are included in the report. A new SSDL has recently joined our Network: the Laboratory of State Dosimetry Standards of the Belarussian State Institute of Metrology (Gosstandart). The SSDL has been added to the database of the IAEA/WHO Network of

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-09-01

    This second issue, you cannot fail to notice the winds of change: changes in the individual programmes of the Member States are now progressively moving from paper studies to realistic site specific investigations; changes in the very orientation of INDAG, in which the accent is now more and more on technical issues and discussions; and changes in the Newsletter itself - in this issue you have not one but three technical notes (see the insert: INDAG Technical Brief), summarising the presentations made during the last INDAG Meeting held from 10 to 12 July, 2002. Reflecting these changes, INDAG has recommended the organisation of Technical Meetings to take place in alternate years between INDAG meetings. Yet another domain where noticeable changes are apparent is the area of International collaborations, which have become realities from just ideas. The EURODESAL project is well underway. This is also the case for the collaboration between South Korea and Indonesia, between France and Tunisia and between France and Morocco, all three dealing with site-specific studies with a view to furnish technical and economic specifications for eventual, integrated nuclear desalination plants. The collaboration between Russia and Canada on a floating nuclear desalination facility continues at an advanced stage

    The International Nuclear Desalination Advisory Group, INDAG, was created following the 1996 General Conference Resolution (GC(40)/RES/14) requesting the IAEA to take the appropriate measures to assist Member States in the process of preparatory actions for nuclear desalination demonstration projects. This resolution was reiterated in the following IAEA General Conferences and INDAG is now in its second term, ending in 2004. From its very beginning, INDAG has actively contributed to the promotion and stimulation of nuclear desalination activities in IAEA Member States. Its achievements are numerous but they are perhaps relatively less well known to people outside IAEA and related organisations. INDAG, through its meetings, has provided common methodology, computer tools and activities which have encouraged other Member States to engage in nuclear desalination activities in a more coherent manner. Similarly, under INDAG recommendations and suggestions, IAEA has already implemented important activities for the promotion of the cause for nuclear desalination in the world launching of the Coordinated Research Program on 'Optimisation of the coupling of nuclear reactors and desalination systems' (1998-2003). This first issue of the Newsletter prepared by INDAG members brings not only a report of INDAG activities but presents the latest innovations and advances taking place in Member States in the field of nuclear desalination

    Ondracek, G.

    1976-08-01

    The present newsletter on stereology deals with a brief outlook about stereological problems to be solved in the future, compares definitions in pattern recognition and stereology and exposes the main notions of mathematical morphology used in quantitative metallography. This includes the description of the main stereological equations relating the parameters describing the dimensional features to the parameters measured in plane sections as well as a special type of equation for practical uses by which the average fiber length in composite materials can be determined. In this context the methods of particle shape descriptions have been summarized and reviewed and an example is given, how particle size and shape distributions can be measured statistically by automatic feature analysis of morphometric sections. - The introduction of stereological microstructural parameters into microstructure - property equations opens the way to calculate the materials properties by a stereological microstructure analysis and extends the possibilities of the common microstructural quality control. This is demonstrated for WC-Co hard metals. (orig./GSC) [de

  8. SSDL newsletter. No. 46

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-01-01

    The first two articles of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter deal with guidelines for setting up the TLD based Quality Assurance (QA) network at the national level and propose a set of standardized procedures for onsite dosimetry review visits to hospitals for resolving discrepancies occurred in the TLD audits. The third article presents an analysis of the deviations identified through the IAEA/WHO TLD audit service. The fourth article is a short technical note on the results of a comparison conducted between the IAEA and the SSDL-STUK (Finland) of calibration coefficients of a well type chamber. This note is followed by an announcement on the publication of an update of the IAEA TECDOC-1079. The new document is published as IAEA TECDOC-1274. The fifth article is also a technical note on a pilot study to verify electrometer calibration coefficients. The note describes the procedures to be used and invites interested SSDLs of the IAEA/WHO network to participate in the pilot study. The IAEA Dosimetry Laboratory will participate in this pilot study. The verification of calibration coefficients of electrometers is of particular interest to SSDLs who have their reference ionization chamber calibrated alone (without the electrometer) in terms of air kerma or absorbed dose per unit charge or current collected. Before the chamber can be used with an electrometer, it is necessary to verify the calibration coefficient of the electrometer (in terms of charge or current). The sixth article was prepared by the Head of a new SSDL member, the Ionizing Radiation Metrology Laboratory (IRML) of South Africa, who has recently joined the network. It gives an overview of the facilities, activities and QA programme of the IRML. The last article is a short note prepared by the IAEA Secretariat on the use of calibration coefficients instead of calibration factors

  9. SSDL newsletter. No. 41

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1999-07-01

    The first article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter is a synopsis of the Ph.D. thesis submitted by Karen Rosser to the University of London in May 1996. If the reader would like the complete version of the thesis, he/she should contact the author at NPL. Readers are reminded that a second edition of the IAEA TRS-277 was published in 1997 (Spanish version in 1998) and the related changes together with the scientific manuscripts were also published as IAEA TECDOC-897. The update concerns primarily the dosimetry of kilovoltage x-rays. The second article presents the IAEA standards for radiation protection and diagnostic radiology. It is worthwhile mentioning that although about 80% of the SSDL laboratory members conduct both radiotherapy and radiation protection calibrations, only few protection level secondary standards are calibrated at the AlEA. During recent years, calibration of protection level secondary standards has represented only a few percent of the therapy level calibrations. It is hoped that this article will give some insight into the activities of the IAEA in the dissemination of standards at radiation protection level dosimetry where proper traceability of measurements with a defined level of uncertainty is as important as in radiotherapy. The last article is the report from a Consultants Meeting related to dosimetry in diagnostic radiology, held at the IAEA in May 1999. The consultants overviewed the scientific achievements in the field and made recommendations to the Agency on the need for further developments. The consultants emphasized the need to develop a Code of Practice which will provide guidance on the establishment of radiation qualities and on the calibration procedures for dosimetry in diagnostic radiology

  17. Luminescent systems based on the isolation of conjugated PI systems and edge charge compensation with polar molecules on a charged nanostructured surface

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ivanov, Ilia N.; Puretzky, Alexander A.; Zhao, Bin; Geohegan, David B.; Styers-Barnett, David J.; Hu, Hui

    2014-07-15

    A photoluminescent or electroluminescent system and method of making a non-luminescent nanostructured material into such a luminescent system is presented. The method of preparing the luminescent system, generally, comprises the steps of modifying the surface of a nanostructured material to create isolated regions to act as luminescent centers and to create a charge imbalance on the surface; applying more than one polar molecule to the charged surface of the nanostructured material; and orienting the polar molecules to compensate for the charge imbalance on the surface of the nanostructured material. The compensation of the surface charge imbalance by the polar molecules allows the isolated regions to exhibit luminescence.

    Producing a patient newsletter is a worthwhile venture if you're doing it for the right reasons. As one component of an overall internal marketing strategy, it demonstrates to patients that you are a concerned caregiver, not only during their visits to your practice but in between those visits. If it's a professional-looking publication with quality content and visuals, it will likely be appreciated by your patients. And as you well know, the dental profession is certainly not suffering from a surplus of appreciation.

    We determine the resonant substructure of {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}}{pi}{pi}{pi} decays, extracting the relative fractions and phases of the amplitudes contributing to the {ital K}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}, {ital {bar K}} {sup 0}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}, {ital K}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup 0}, and {ital {bar K}} {sup 0}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} final states. We find that two-body decay modes account for at least 75% of these decays. We obtain branching ratios for {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}a}{sub 1}(1260), {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *}{rho}, {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}}{sub 1}(1270){pi}, {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}}{sub 1}(1400){pi}, and {ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup 0}{omega} decay modes, as well as for several three- and four-body decay modes. In the case of {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}a}{sub 1}(1260) and {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *}{rho}, we obtain the branching ratios for all three possible isospin combinations, enabling us to extract the isospin-1/2 and -3/2 amplitudes, and their relative phases. We find that the isospin-3/2 amplitudes are suppressed relative to the isospin-1/2 amplitudes. This implies that the widths of the {ital D}{sup +} modes are suppressed relative to those of the {ital D}{sup 0}, confirming that an understanding of the lifetime difference of the {ital D}{sup 0} and {ital D}{sup +} depends on an understanding of two-body hadronic decays. For the {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *}{rho} decay modes, we obtain detailed information on the polarization of the {ital {bar K}} {sup *} and {rho}. This enables us to place constraints on the form factors for {ital D}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *} and {ital D}{r arrow}{rho} transitions.

    We present a measurement of the induced proton polarization P n in π 0 electroproduction on the proton around the Δ resonance. The measurement was made at a central invariant mass and a squared four-momentum transfer of W = 1231 MeV and Q 2 = 0.126 GeV 2 /c 2 , respectively. We measured a large induced polarization, P n = -0.397 ± 0.055 ± 0.009. The data suggest that the scalar background is larger than expected from a recent effective Hamiltonian model

    The authors present a Dalitz-plot analysis of charmless B{sup {+-}} decays to the final state {pi}{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup {-+}} using 210 fb{sup -1} of data recorded by the BABAR experiment at {radical}s = 10.58 GeV. We measure the branching fractions {Beta}(B{sup {+-}} {yields} {pi}{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup {+-}}{pi}{sup {-+}}) = (16.2 {+-} 1.2 {+-} 0.9) x 10{sup -6} and {Beta}(B{sup {+-}} {yields} {rho}{sup 0}(770){pi}{sup {+-}}) = (8.8 {+-} 1.0 {+-} 0.6{sub -0.7}{sup +0.1}) x 10{sup -6}. Measurements of branching fractions for the quasi-two-body decays B{sup {+-}} {yields} {rho}{sup 0}(1450){pi}{sup {+-}}, B{sup {+-}} {yields} f{sub 0}(980){pi}{sup {+-}} and B{sup {+-}} f{sub 2}(1270){pi}{sup {+-}} are also presented. They observe no charge asymmetries for the above modes, and there is no evidence for the decays B{sup {+-}} {yields} {chi}{sub c0}{pi}{sup {+-}}, B{sup {+-}} {yields} f{sub 0}(1370){pi}{sup {+-}} and B{sup {+-}} {yields} {sigma}{pi}{sup {+-}}.

    The reactions gamma gamma -> pi^+pi^-pi^+pi^- and gamma gamma -> pi^+pi^0pi^-pi^0 are studied with the L3 detector at LEP in a data sample collected at centre-of-mass energies from 161GeV to 209GeV with a total integrated luminosity of 698/pb. A spin-parity-helicity analysis of the rho^0 rho^0 and rho^+ rho^- systems for two-photon centre-of-mass energies between 1GeV and 3GeV shows the dominance of the spin-parity state 2+ with helicity 2. The contribution of 0+ and 0- spin-parity states is also observed, whereas contributions of 2- states and of a state with spin-parity 2+ and zero helicity are found to be negligible.

    Even as separate institutes, the EIR (Eidg. Institut fuer Reaktorforschung and the SIN (Schweiz. Institut fuer Nuklearforschung) made use of ionizing radiation and radioactivity in medical diagnosis and therapy. After their fusion into a national laboratory, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), these projects were combined with those of the Radiation Protection Group and the Life Sciences Department was formed. In equality with the departments of Nuclear and Particle Physics, Condensed Matter and Materials Sciences, and Energy Research and Engineering Sciences, the department of Life Sciences is one of the major pillars of the new center. The activities are divided into three areas: radiation medicine, radiopharmacy, and radiation protection. The goal of the first two is to develop social and economic uses of radioactivity and elementary particles. The Division of Radiation Medicine proposes to achieve this through the development of original, dynamic and conformal tumor therapy with charged particles and the Division of Radiopharmacy through the investigation into, and the production of, highly specific diagnostic systems for SPECT, PET and MRI and the investigation of the use of radionuclides in therapy. The third division, Radiation Protection, evaluates the risks of ionizing radiation in biology and the ecosphere and proposes adequate protection measures. The present report describes, in the first section, the outstanding scientific results of the past year and, in the second section, gives a progress report on the on-going programs. It is the first report in this style, but it can be considered as a continuation of the earlier Medical Newsletter of SIN. (author) 59 figs., 19 tabs., 61 refs

    A subroutine, SCATPI, was written which calculates ..pi../sup +/p elastic differential cross sections for incident pion kinetic energies between 90 and 310 MeV for ..pi../sup -/p. The calculation is based upon the phase shift analysis of Carter, Bugg, and Carter, and is reliable to about 2% for ..pi../sup +/p and 3% for ..pi../sup -/p differential cross sections. SCATPI also calculates other scattering parameters for the ..pi..+-p systems. The calculations are compared with the measurements used in the phase shift analysis, and with selected recent measurements. The use of SCATPI is described. 14 figures, 4 tables.

  6. Extraction of the $\\pi^+\\pi^-$ Subsystem in Diffractively Produced $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ at COMPASS

    CERN Document Server

    Krinner, Fabian

    2017-01-01

    The COMPASS experiment at CERN has collected a large data sample of 50 million diffractively produced $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ events using a $190\\,$GeV$/c$ negatively charged hadron beam. The partial-wave analysis (PWA) of these high-precision data reveals previously unseen details. The PWA, which is currently limited by systematic uncertainties, is based on an isobar model, where multi-particle decays are described as subsequent two-body decays and where a prior-knowledge parametrization for the intermediate two-pion resonances has to be assumed -- usually a Breit-Wigner amplitude -- thus increasing systematic uncertainties, due to the concrete choice of the parametrization. We present a novel method, which allows to extract isobar amplitudes directly from the data in a less biased way. The focus lies on the scalar $\\pi^+\\pi^-$ subsystem, where a previous analysis found a signal for a new axial-vector state $a_1(1420)$ decaying into $f_0(980)\\pi$.

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter (No. 66) is the first one published only in electronic form. This change in format will open new possibilities by allowing us to use more interactive materials in the future. We would like also to increase the interaction between the members of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network and thus invite all members to send new ideas and articles for the Newsletter. One of our services is to organize comparisons for members of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network. We provide comparison services for standards used for radiation therapy, diagnostic radiology and radiation protection calibrations. To be able to provide these services, we also have to take part in comparisons to support our calibration and measurement capabilities. The first article of this newsletter is one example of this kind of comparison and provides comparison results of the radiation therapy level standards of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the IAEA. In this newsletter, we have included several reports from different meetings and courses. The article starting from page 9 provides a comprehensive information package for countries establishing and developing dosimetry audit centres. The article that follows introduces a new publication in progress for establishing an SSDL. Training courses about radiation protection calibrations and preparing a quality management system for SSDLs were both organized under IAEA technical cooperation. The uncertainty workshop organised in April by DMRP had more than 80 participants and, in addition to the guidance on uncertainty estimations, it provided the participants a good opportunity to meet other dosimetry experts

  18. Animal production and health newsletter. No. 41

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2004-12-01

    In the June 2004 Newsletter, we focused on the topic of molecular diagnostic technologies and the way forward. It is clear from the feedback, that there is a strong desire for having reliable, definitive, sensitive, specific, cost effective and on-site diagnostic tests, in parallel with so-called herd or population surveillance tests. This will allow for the implementation of more effective disease control strategies. It is indeed exciting to consider the current technological explosion and its consequences and what potential advantages might be in store for many of our Member States. This will also help to ensure that we keep abreast of new developments and employ the most appropriate tools.The conclusions and recommendations will be placed on the web as soon as they are available and published in the next Newsletter. The second topic under discussion in this Newsletter will focus on the management of animal genetic resources. Both past and future activities are described in further detail in this issue

    Bailey, David H.; Borwein, Jonathan M.; Borwein, Peter B.; Plouffe, Simon

    1996-01-01

    This article gives a brief history of the analysis and computation of the mathematical constant Pi=3.14159 ..., including a number of the formulas that have been used to compute Pi through the ages. Recent developments in this area are then discussed in some detail, including the recent computation of Pi to over six billion decimal digits using high-order convergent algorithms, and a newly discovered scheme that permits arbitrary individual hexadecimal digits of Pi to be computed.

    The number Pi (approximately 3.14159) is defined to be the ratio C/d of the circumference (C) to the diameter (d) of any given circle. In particular, Pi measures the circumference of a circle of diameter d = 1. Historically, the Greek mathematician Archimedes found good approximations for Pi by inscribing and circumscribing many-sided polygons…

    The COMPASS collaboration at CERN has investigated the $\\pi^-\\gamma \\to \\pi^-\\pi^-\\pi^+$ reaction at center-of-momentum energy below five pion masses, $\\sqrt{s} \\lt 5m_\\pi$ , embedded in the Primakoff reaction of 190 GeV pions impinging on a lead target. Exchange of quasi-real photons is selected by isolating the sharp Coulomb peak observed at smallest momentum transfers, $t' \\lt 0.001 GeV^2/c^2$. Using partial-wave analysis techniques, the scattering intensity of Coulomb production described in terms of chiral dynamics and its dependence on the 3pi-invariant mass $m_{3\\pi} = \\sqrt{s}$ were extracted. The absolute cross section was determined in seven bins of $\\sqrt{s}$ with an overall precision of 20%. At leading order, the result is found to be in good agreement with the prediction of chiral perturbation theory over the whole energy range investigated.

  10. $B \\to \\pi \\pi$ Decay in QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Khodjamirian, Alexander

    2001-01-01

    A new method is suggested to calculate the $B\\to \\pi\\pi$ hadronic matrix elements from QCD light-cone sum rules. To leading order in $\\alpha_s$ and $1/m_b$, the sum rule reproduces a factorizable matrix element, in accordance with the prediction of the QCD factorization approach. Whereas the QCD factorization can only take into account the nonfactorizable corrections induced by hard-gluon exchanges, the method suggested here also allows a systematic inclusion of soft-gluon effects. In this paper, I concentrate on the latter aspect and present a calculation of the nonfactorizable soft-gluon exchange contributions to $B\\to \\pi\\pi$. The result, including twist 3 and 4 terms, is suppressed by one power of $1/m_b$ with respect to the factorizable amplitude. Despite its numerical smallness, the soft effect is at the same level as the $O(\\alpha_s)$ correction to the QCD factorization formula for $B\\to \\pi\\pi$. The method suggested here can be applied to matrix elements of different topologies and operators and to va...

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2017-12-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter (No. 67) is a special issue dedicated to the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network. The SSDL Network was established in 1976 and its main aim is to support Member States to maintain the traceability of their dose measurements. The first article of this newsletter is a historical review of the SSDL Network. The SSDL Charter explains the privileges, rights and duties of the Network members and it was originally drawn up and published in 1999. The original SSDL Charter has now been reviewed and updated and electronic version of the 2nd edition is available on our website. The second article of this Newsletter is the foreword of the new Charter. It describes the new edition of the Charter and explains how the requirements for the Network members have changed. One of the requirements of a full SSDL Network member is to fill out and submit the annual report form. This data has been gathered from 2015 and 2016 annual reports and a summary is given in the third article. The article gives a statistical overview of the services provided by the SSDL Network members. In the future, we would like to share this data with you. We are creating a new database called Dosimetry Laboratory Network i.e. DOLNET. The preliminary version of this database is currently available on our new website. However, we are currently working on revising and upgrading it to be able to provide more information about the services available at the SSDLs of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-12-01

    This issue focuses on the specific biotechnological methods that have the greatest potential for livestock production and health in developing countries, and which of these require nuclear and related techniques? The consultants' meeting that we held during 2001 (http://www.iaea.org/programmes/nafa/d3/public/ gene-technologies.pdf) provided us with the answers. We have subsequently discussed these concepts further with FAO, ILRI and other partners, and have planned a series of activities over the next two years to facilitate the transition of our Sub-programme. The first is an FAO/IAEA International Symposium on 'Applications of Gene Based Technologies for Improving Animal Production and Health in Developing Countries' which will be held here in Vienna from 6 to 10 October 2003. The official announcement is included in this Newsletter. This will be followed by three inter-regional training courses, to be held during 2004 and 2005, to train scientists in developing countries on the molecular techniques currently being used in the fields of animal nutrition, genetics and disease diagnosis. Subsequently, four new CRPs will be initiated during 2005-2006, dealing with (a) rumen molecular techniques for predicting and enhancing productivity; (b) manipulation of nutrition in utero to alter gene expression; (c) characterization of small ruminant genetic resources aimed at selection for parasite resistance; and (d) improvement of diagnostic tests for African Swine Fever to assist in molecular epidemiology. The announcements for the first two have already appeared in previous Newsletters and that for the third will be in the next issue. The projects that have been approved for implementation during the next biennium (2003-2004) are listed in this Newsletter

  9. The Story of PI

    Science.gov (United States)

    Apostol, Tom M. (Editor)

    1989-01-01

    The early history and the uses of the mathematical notation - pi - are presented through both film footage and computer animation in this 'Project Mathematics' series video. Pi comes from the first letter in the Greek word for perimeter. Archimedes, and early Greek mathematician, formulated the equations for the computation of a circle's area using pi and was the first person to seriously approximate pi numerically, although only to a few decimal places. By 1985, pi had been approximated to over one billion decimal places and was found to have no repeating pattern. One use of pi is the application of its approximation calculation as an analytical tool for determining the accuracy of supercomputers and software designs.

    Quantum-correlated $\\psi(3770) \\to D\\bar{D}$ decays collected by the CLEO-c experiment are used to perform a first measurement of $F_+^{4\\pi}$, the fractional $CP$-even content of the self-conjugate decay $D \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$, obtaining a value of $0.737 \\pm 0.028$. An important input to the measurement comes from the use of $D \\to K^0_{\\rm S}\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and $D \\to K^0_{\\rm L}\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays to tag the signal mode. This same technique is applied to the channels $D \\to\\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^0$ and $D \\to K^+K^-\\pi^0$, yielding $F_+^{\\pi\\pi\\pi^0} = 1.014 \\pm 0.045 \\pm 0.022$ and $F_+^{KK\\pi^0} = 0.734 \\pm 0.106 \\pm 0.054$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. These measurements are consistent with those of an earlier analysis, based on $CP$-eigenstate tags, and can be combined to give values of $F_+^{\\pi\\pi\\pi^0} = 0.973 \\pm 0.017$ and $F_+^{KK\\pi^0} = 0.732 \\pm 0.055$. The results will enable the three modes to be included in a model-independent manner in measurements of the ...

  16. Evaluation of a public health newsletter intended for travel agents.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Provost, Sylvie

    2003-01-01

    Travel agents are in a key position to encourage travelers to seek consultation in travel clinics. Since the beginning of the year 2000, a newsletter specifically designed to sensitize travel agents to travel health has been published by the public health authorities and distributed to all travel agencies in Quebec. This study was undertaken to evaluate the utilization and appreciation of the newsletter by travel agents and its impact on preventive practices. During the autumn of 2001, a cross-sectional descriptive survey was carried out among travel agencies in Quebec. Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire sent by fax with a postal follow-up. A total of 252 of the 950 travel agencies contacted (27%) answered our questionnaire. In all, 78% of respondents said their agency receives the newsletter. Among these agencies, the majority of respondents considered that the subjects discussed in the newsletter are interesting (often or in general: 96%), that the subjects and preventive recommendations for travel destinations are useful in the travel agent's practice (often or in general: 89%), and generally presented in an adequate way (96%). According to the respondents, the newsletter encouraged them, often or very often, to inform travelers about travel-related health problems (70%) or to recommend a consultation in a travel clinic (63%). The impact of the newsletter on the recommendation to consult was greater among agents having more than 10 years' experience (odds ratio [OR] 3.2). When asked about the best way to send them the newsletter, only 31% identified bulk mailing, which was the current mode of distribution. Satisfaction rate with the newsletter appears to be high among respondents who receive it. However, the low response rate to the survey may indicate that as a whole, the travel agents' interest in the newsletter is mitigated. Despite the limitations of this study, the results will allow us to modify some aspects of the publication

    We report a study of the suppressed $B^{-}\\to DK^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and favored $B^-\\to D\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays, where the neutral $D$ meson is detected through its decays to the $K^{\\mp}\\pi^{\\pm}$ and $CP$-even $K^+K^-$ and $\\pi^+\\pi^-$ final states. The measurement is carried out using a proton-proton collision data sample collected by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$. We observe the first significant signals in the $CP$-even final states of the $D$ meson for both the suppressed $B^{-}\\to DK^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and favored $B^-\\to D\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ modes, as well as in the doubly Cabibbo-suppressed $D\\to K^+\\pi^-$ final state of the $B^-\\to D\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decay. Evidence for the ADS suppressed decay $B^{-}\\to DK^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$, with $D\\to K^+\\pi^-$, is also presented. From the observed yields in the $B^{-}\\to DK^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$, $B^-\\to D\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and their charge conjugate decay modes, we measure the value of the weak phase to be $\\gamma=(74^{+20}_{-18})^{\\rm o}$.

One is most familiar with many of its applications to geometry, analysis, probability, and number theory. This paper demonstrates several examples of how…

  1. AgPi: Agents on Raspberry Pi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tushar Semwal

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available The Raspberry Pi and its variants have brought with them an aura of change in the world of embedded systems. With their impressive computation and communication capabilities and low footprint, these devices have thrown open the possibility of realizing a network of things in a very cost-effective manner. While such networks offer good solutions to prominent issues, they are indeed a long way from being smart or intelligent. Most of the currently available implementations of such a network of devices involve a centralized cloud-based server that contributes to making the necessary intelligent decisions, leaving these devices fairly underutilized. Though this paradigm provides for an easy and rapid solution, they have limited scalability, are less robust and at times prove to be expensive. In this paper, we introduce the concept of Agents on Raspberry Pi (AgPi as a cyber solution to enhance the smartness and flexibility of such embedded networks of physical devices in a decentralized manner. The use of a Multi-Agent System (MAS running on Raspberry Pis aids agents, both static and mobile, to govern the various activities within the network. Agents can act autonomously or on behalf of a human user and can collaborate, learn, adapt and act, thus contributing to embedded intelligence. This paper describes how Tartarus, a multi-agent platform, embedded on Raspberry Pis that constitute a network, can bring the best out of the system. To reveal the versatility of the concept of AgPi, an application for a Location-Aware and Tracking Service (LATS is presented. The results obtained from a comparison of data transfer cost between the conventional cloud-based approach with AgPi have also been included.

    The ratio R_{\\eta}=\\Gamma(\\eta -> \\pi^+\\pi^-\\gamma)/\\Gamma(\\eta -> \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^0) has been measured by analyzing 22 million \\phi \\to \\eta \\gamma decays collected by the KLOE experiment at DA\\PhiNE, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 558 pb^{-1}. The \\eta \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\gamma proceeds both via the \\rho resonant contribution, and possibly a non-resonant direct term, connected to the box anomaly. Our result, R_{\\eta}= 0.1856\\pm 0.0005_{stat} \\pm 0.0028_{syst}, points out a sizable contribution of the direct term to the total width. The di-pion invariant mass for the \\eta -> \\pi^+\\pi^-\\gamma decay could be described in a model-independent approach in terms of a single free parameter, \\alpha. The determined value of the parameter \\alpha is \\alpha = (1.32 \\pm 0.08_{stat} +0.10/-0.09_{syst}\\pm 0.02_{theo}) GeV^{-2}

If you are interested in some of the stories then the ‘News’ link on the NDS web page (https://www-nds.iaea.org/) provides further details. To try and capture the spirit of this really interesting event we include some photographs here. In the week that followed, the 30th INDC meeting was held where we reviewed the recent work and heard excellent advice about our plans for the next biennium. INDC also reached the milestone of thirty meetings stretching back to the founding of the Section. As you can see in the newsletter there have been many meetings held showing the wide scope of the work we do

    This issue of the Soils Newsletter summarises the activities of the Soil and Water Management and Crop Nutrition Section of the IAEA during 1998. A total of six Research Co-ordination Meetings (RCMs) were held during 1998, four at HQ in Vienna, one in Bucharest, Romania, and one in Oeiras, Portugal. Of the meetings held at HQ, two were final meetings (CRPs on 'Irrigated Wheat' and 'Phosphatic Fertilizers'), while another was the first (CRP on 'Rainfed Agriculture'). A Consultants' Meeting was also held at HQ on 'The Comparison of Three Soil Water Content Assessment Methods'. Another significant meeting in 1998 was Workshop D at the 16th World Congress of Soil Science in Montpellier, France ('The Use of Nuclear Techniques for Developing Sustainable Soil, Water and Nutrient Management Practices') which was sponsored by the Joint FAO/IAEA Division. A Workshop or Symposium convened by the Sub-programme has become a regular event at the World Congress of Soil Science which is held every four years. Details of all Meetings are given in the Newsletter. Four RCMs are planned for 1999, one at HQ (first RCM in 'Agroforestry'), one in Barcelona, Spain (third RCM in 'Soil Erosion'), one in Rabat, Morocco (third RCM in 'Organic Matter') and one in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (final RCM in 'Irradiated Sewage Sludge'). In addition, a Consultants' Meeting to plan for a new CRP on 'Acid Soils' will be held in Vienna early in 1999. Detailed planning for an International Symposium on Nuclear Techniques for Developing Sustainable Soil, Water and Nutrient Management Practice, to be held at HQ in October 2000, will also be initiated early in 1999

  16. Zeros of the pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/ to pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/ amplitude (from data on pp to pi /sup -/ pi /sup +/)

    CERN Document Server

    Bugg, D V

    1974-01-01

    Recent data on the reaction pp to pi /sup -/ pi /sup +/ show four conspicuous dips in the angular distribution at fixed values of nu =t- u. The conjecture is made that the channel pi /sup -/ pi /sup +/ to pi /sup -/ pi /sup +/ has zeros at the same nu values. Using data of the CERN-Munich group, one can follow the zeros through the whole Mandelstam plane. The zeros pass through the intersections of s and t channel poles, as the Veneziano model predicts; however, away from these intersections, they propagate in a fashion systematically quite different from Veneziano's ansatz.

    We study the process e+e- -> pi+pi-pi+pi-gamma, with a photon emitted from the initial-state electron or positron, using 454.3 fb^-1 of data collected with the BABAR detector at SLAC, corresponding to approximately 260,000 signal events. We use these data to extract the non-radiative sigma(e+e- ->pi+pi-pi+pi-) cross section in the energy range from 0.6 to 4.5 Gev. The total uncertainty of the cross section measurement in the peak region is less than 3%, higher in precision than the corresponding results obtained from energy scan data.

    Abstract—This paper presents the design and performance evaluation of an inexpensive testbed for network coding protocols composed of Raspberry Pis. First, we show the performance of random linear network coding primitives on the Raspberry Pi in terms of processing speed and energy consumption...... under a variety of configuration setups. Our measurements show that processing rates of up to 230 Mbps are possible with the Raspberry Pi. Also, the energy consumption per bit can be as small as 3 nJ/bit, which is several orders of magnitude smaller than the transmission/reception energy use....... Surprisingly, overclocking the Raspberry Pi from 700 MHz to 1000 MHz not only produces an increase in processing speed of up to 68 % for large generation sizes, but also provides a reduction of 64 % in the processing energy per bit for most tested scenarios. Then, we show Raspberry Pi as an inexpensive, viable...

  1. The $2\\pi$ Subsystem in Diffractively Produced $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ at COMPASS

    CERN Document Server

    Krinner, Fabian

    2016-05-25

    The COMPASS experiment at CERN has collected a large dataset of $50$ million $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ events produced diffractively from a proton target using a $190\\,\\mathrm{GeV}/c$ pion beam. The partial-wave analysis (PWA) of these high-precision data reveals previously unseen details but is limited in parts by systematic effects. The PWA is based on the isobar model, in which multi-particle decays are described as a chain of subsequent two-body decays. Here, fixed mass distributions for the appearing intermediate resonances, the so-called isobars, are assumed. These shapes, which e.g. may be parametrized by Breit-Wigner amplitudes, represent prior knowledge that has to be put into the analysis model and may therefore introduce a model dependence, thus increasing systematic uncertainties. We present a novel method, which allows to extract isobar amplitudes directly from the data in a more model-independent way. As a first application, diffractively produced $\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ events are analyzed. Here, the focus l...

The measurements are performed with the LHCb detector using 35~${\\rm pb^{-1}}$ of data collected at $\\sqrt{s}=7$~TeV. The ratios of branching fractions are measured to be \\begin{eqnarray*} {{\\cal{B}}(\\overline{B^0}\\to D^+\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-)\\over{\\cal{B}}(\\overline{B^0}\\to D^+\\pi^-)} = 2.38\\pm0.11\\pm0.21 \

    The $K_{S} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}e^{+}e^{-}$ decay mode was investigated using the data collected in 2002 by the NA48/1 collaboration. With about 23,k $K_{S} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}e^{+}e^{-}$ events and 59,k $K_{L} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}\\pi^{0}_{D}$ normalization decays, the $K_{S} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}e^{+}e^{-}$ branching ratio relative to the $K_{L}\\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}\\pi^{0}_{D}$ one was determined to be BR($K_{S} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}e^{+}e^{-}$)/BR($K_{L} \\rightarrow \\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}\\pi^{0}_{D}$) = $ (3.28 \\pm 0.06_{stat}\\pm 0.04_{syst})\\times 10^{-2}$.

    The goal of the CBELSA/TAPS-experiment is the investigation of the nucleon-resonance-structure. It turns out that the measurement of polarisation-observables is indispensable. These observables are measured using linearly or circularly polarised photons and a polarised target. The preparation and characterisation of linearly polarised photons was part of this work. Linearly polarised photons were produced by coherent bremsstrahlung from an accurately aligned diamond crystal at deliberately chosen photon energies and polarisation planes. The degree of polarisation was determined with a maximum relative uncertainty of 5% in a wide energy-range. The precision of the determined degree of linear polarisation could be verified by the extraction of the polarisation observable {Sigma} in the reaction {gamma}p {yields} p{pi}{sup 0}. Furthermore the double-polarisation-observable G was determined by the investigation of this reaction using linearly polarised photons and a longitudinally polarised target. The results for the observable G better constrain resonance properties contributing to this channel than it was possible before. The main focus of this thesis was the investigation of the reaction {gamma}p {yields} p{omega}. For this purpose the observables {Sigma} and {Sigma}{sub {pi}} as well as for the first time the double-polarisation-observables G, G{sub {pi}} and E were determined. In particular the results for the high-statistics measurements of the observable E provide strong evidence for the production of the {omega}-meson via the decay of resonances in the s-channel.

    A measurement of the direct CP violating charge asymmetries of the Dalitz plot linear slopes $A_g=(g^+-g^-)/(g^++g^-)$ in $K^\\pm\\to\\pi^\\pm\\pi^+\\pi^-$ and $K^\\pm\\to\\pi^\\pm\\pi^0\\pi^0$ decays by the NA48/2 experiment at CERN SPS is presented. A new technique of asymmetry measurement involving simultaneous $K^+$ and $K^-$ beams and a large data sample collected allowed a result of an unprecedented precision. The charge asymmetries were measured to be $A^c_g=(-1.5\\pm2.1)\\times10^{-4}$ with $3.11\\times 10^9$ $K^{\\pm}\\to\\pi^\\pm\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays, and $A^n_g=(1.8\\pm1.8)\\times10^{-4}$ with $9.13\\times 10^7$ $K^{\\pm}\\to\\pi^\\pm\\pi^0\\pi^0$ decays. The precision of the results is limited mainly by the size of the data sample.

    A search for $CP$ violation in the phase-space structures of $D^{0}$ and $\\bar{D^{0}}$ decays to the final states $K^{-}K^{+}\\pi^{-}\\pi^{+}$ and $\\pi^{-}\\pi^{+}\\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}$ is presented. The search is carried out with a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{−1}$ collected in 2011 by the LHCb experiment in $pp$ collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. For the $K^{-}K^{+}\\pi^{-}\\pi^{+}$ final state, the four-body phase space is divided into 32 bins, each bin with approximately 1800 decays. The $p$-value under the hypothesis of no $CP$ violation is 9.1 %, and in no bin is a $CP$ asymmetry greater than 6.5 % observed. The phase space of the $\\pi^{-}\\pi^{+}\\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}$ final state is partitioned into 128 bins, each bin with approximately 2500 decays. The p-value under the hypothesis of no $CP$ violation is 41 %, and in no bin is a $CP$ asymmetry greater than 5.5 % observed. All results are consistent with the hypothesis of no $CP$ violation at the current sensitivity.

    The authors present preliminary results of improved measurements of the CP-violating asymmetries and branching fractions in the decays B{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, B{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, and B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}. This update includes all data taken at the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance by the BABAR experiment at the asymmetric PEP-II B-meson factory at SLAC, corresponding to 467 {+-} 5 million B{bar B} pairs. They find S{sub {pi}{pi}} = -0.68 {+-} 0.10 {+-} 0.03, C{sub {pi}{pi}} = -0.25 {+-} 0.08 {+-} 0.02, {Alpha}{sub K{sub {pi}}} = -0.107 {+-} 0.016{sub -0.004},{sup +0.006}, C{sub {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}} = -0.43 {+-} 0.26 {+-} 0.05, {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}) = (1.83 {+-} 0.21 {+-} 0.13) x 10{sup -6}, {Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}) = (10.1 {+-} 0.6 {+-} 0.4) x 10{sup -6}, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. They observe CP violation with a significance of 6.7{sigma} in B{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup -} and 6.1{sigma} in B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup +}{pi}{sup -}. Constraints on the Unitarity Triangle angle {alpha} are determined from the isospin relation between all B {yields} {pi}{pi} rates and asymmetries.

    Implementation of a new CRP on Physical mapping technologies for the identification and characterization of mutated genes contributing to crop quality, organization of mutant germplasm database and repository, implementation of new TC projects and activation of work on molecular characterization of Musa putative germplasm as well as sequencing of BAC clones were the major activities of our sub-Programme on Plant Breeding and Genetics during the last six months. A lot of work has been concentrated on organizing a mutant germplasm repository. The first collections of rice and linseed mutants have already arrived and their descriptions have been introduced into the mutated germplasm database. We found this activity especially important to stimulate exchange of crop germplasm among plant breeders. Similarly there is an urgent need to collect mutants of various crops as necessary material for functional genomics and germplasm enhancement. Nevertheless, many crop research institutes are initiating large-scale mutation programmes with the use of their own plant material. To help them in selecting the mutagen, doses and mutation treatment procedure, we published the third issue of Mutation Breeding Newsletter Index of No. 21-44. The Index is also available through our website http://www.iaea.org/programmes/nafa/d2/index.html. The numerous requests for issues of the Mutation Breeding Newsletter already received from various countries indicate the value of this 80-page index for plant breeders and research institutes. We were invited to present the activities, achievements and trends of our sub-Programme at two very important, international meetings: The International Conference on the Status of Plant and Animal Genome Research, known as the Plant and Animal Genome (PAG XI), and The International Congress on 'In the Wake of the Double Helix - From the Green Revolution to the Gene Revolution'. At this last meeting, an initiative was taken to organize the Crop Root Research

    The most important event related to the activity of the Plant Breeding and Genetics sub-programme in the past six months was the 2nd FAO/IAEA Interregional Training Course on 'Mutant Germplasm Characterization using Molecular Markers' which was held at Seibersdorf, 4-29 November 2002. In addition to basic molecular and marker techniques, which were also a subject of the first training course last year, fluorescence in situ hybridisation methods were included in the teaching and demonstration programme. As we informed you in the last edition of this Newsletter, a laboratory manual was published with detailed protocols on molecular markers techniques entitled 'Mutant germplasm characterization using molecular markers. A Manual'. (IAEA Training Course Series No. 19). (available for free distribution under conditions provided on page 11 of this Newsletter). We have also finished editing a book on 'Doubled haploid production in crop plants. A Manual.' This book was prepared in close collaboration with EU COST 851 activities. Ken Kasha (Canada), Brian Forster (UK) and lwona Szarejko (Poland) helped to edit more than 40 protocols for doubled haploid production in at least 23 crop species. The preparation of this manual reflects our our interest in the development and application of this technology for crop improvement. Two CRPs and numerous Technical Co-operation projects greatly contributed to the development of doubled haploid methods and also to implementation of this technology in crop improvement programmes of many countries. Numerous other important activities have been undertaken by the Plant Breeding and Genetics sub-programme during the last 6 months. A consultants meeting on 'Low cost technology in plant tissue culture' was held in Vienna and its results will be summarized in the form of an IAEA-TECDOC which is now in the final stage of preparation. In addition to the implementation of five Co-ordinated Research Projects, nine workshops and national or regional

    2006-10-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter starts with a brief review of changes of airkerma standards of the BIPM and primary standards dosimetry laboratories, and their implications for IAEA calibrations. The IAEA policy on implementing changes in its radiation standards is spelled out in the report. SSDL members are advised to adopt a documented policy on the way to implement changes in their reference standards and on the process of communicating the impact of the changes to their end-users. The second article is a report on the second research coordination meeting on the Coordinated Research Project E2.40.12, which deals with the development of TLD-based quality audits for radiotherapy dosimetry in non-reference conditions. The secretariat of the IAEA/WHO SSDL network is pleased to inform its members about the extension of its calibration facilities in Seibersdorf. The new facilities will host a new therapy level 60 Co unit and an X-ray machine for diagnostic x-ray calibrations. The existing facilities will be devoted to radiation protection level calibration and training of IAEA sponsored fellows. The construction of the new facilities will be completed by the end of this year

    2009-10-01

    From modest beginnings on its establishment in 1995, the ALMERA (Analytical Laboratories for the Measurement of Environmental Radioactivity) network has expanded to include 118 laboratories, representing 73 of our Member States. ALMERA initially started as a platform for data comparison and analysis in the field of environmental radioactivity, coordinated by the International Atomic Energy Agency laboratories in Seibersdorf (Austria). ALMERA network members are nominated by their countries for their ability to provide reliable and timely analysis of environmental samples in the event of an accidental or intentional release of radioactivity. Today, network activities include annual coordination meetings and proficiency tests, as well as sample collection intercomparison exercises, and development of standard analytical procedures for network members. The network is a voluntary and cooperative effort to achieve global standards and cohesive guidelines in issues related to environmental radioactivity. Among some of the network's objectives are: achieving comparable analytical results traceable to the SI system, preparing guidelines for sampling and analysis methods for use by laboratories worldwide, and being a source of reliable and consistent information and advice for government bodies in their services to the public. This newsletter reflects your demand for news and information on this important topic. We look forward to your continued participation in our activities

    The first article of this newsletter describes some aspects of the role of hydrogen in energy transition. It outlines the sensitivity of the production cost to the business model, the great number of applications of hydrogen as a chemical product and as an energy vector, the promising applications in mobility and transport, the good public image of this product, and the role hydrogen could play in energy transition. The second article comments the recent evolutions of the uranium market and outlines the perspective of concentration of mining companies, notably state companies. The third article proposes a comparative analysis of public policies in favour of solar photovoltaic development between Germany and China (in terms of objectives, of inputs and results, of production and installations). It also highlights the interactions between the photovoltaic policy strategies of both countries. The next article addresses the project development of two EPR nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point in the UK with the favourable recommendation of the European Competition Commission. Some brief news are then proposed (mainly about recent international meetings on energy and on uranium non conventional resources)

  18. Insect pest control newsletter. No. 61

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2003-07-01

    In the past years it has often been pointed out that the name of the Insect and Pest Control Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division, and the name of this newsletter (Insect and Pest Control Newsletter) create confusion and expectations for control of rats, birds, weeds and other non-insect pests but which are not within our mandate. All work within the Subprogramme has been on insect pests, and in 1999 an external review recommended a change to Insect Pest Control Subprogramme since this is simpler, reduces confusion and retains the good recognition and high reputation that already exists. The IAEA management implemented this recommendation and consequently, as of this issue this newsletter is entitled Insect Pest Control Newsletter. There was a very constructive consultant's meeting recently held in Vienna on the development of genetic sexing strains for the codling moth, for which the demand for SIT application is significantly increasing. Based on the discussions during this meeting a real opportunity seems now to exist to move the field of Lepidoptera genetic sexing forward. The possibility of using an allele of a dominant lethal mutation, such as the temperature sensitive Notch, in the development of a genetic sexing system for codling moth is very exciting. As emerged during the meeting, if an appropriate allele of this mutation can be inserted onto the female determining chromosome of codling moth, through transformation, then it may be possible to kill female embryos with a cold temperature treatment. Another approach could be to translocate an autosomal insertion of the gene onto the female determining chromosome. If the insert of the dominant lethal mutation also included a gene expressing a fluorescent protein then the strain would also have a visible marker for the sexing procedure. This latter is very important for any use of a sexing strain in mass rearing. There appear to be few technical constraints to demonstrating 'proof of principle' for

    1998-06-01

    As we move into the second half of 1998, it is appropriate to look forward to 1999 which will see the commencement of four new FAO/IAEA Co-ordinated Research Projects (CRP) and the initiation of new round of biennium support for the Agency's programme of Technical C-operation (TC). The technical direction of support through these two activities reflects the process that was begun with the external review of the animal production and heath Sub-programme in 1996. Thus in the animal health field this year we have started three new CRPs on rinderpest, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) and Newcastle Disease, and in 1999 we will start a new CRP on developing techniques for separating foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccinated animals from those naturally infected. In the animal production field we will start new CRPs in 1999 on purine derivative analysis in urine, and on tannins whilst in veterinary drug residue analysis the first CRP will commence, again in 1999. Further information on these activities is contained in this Newsletter

    Berggren, Lennart; Borwein, Peter

    2004-01-01

    This book documents the history of pi from the dawn of mathematical time to the present. One of the beauties of the literature on pi is that it allows for the inclusion of very modern, yet accessible, mathematics. The articles on pi collected herein include selections from the mathematical and computational literature over four millennia, a variety of historical studies on the cultural significance of the number, and an assortment of anecdotal, fanciful, and simply amusing pieces. For this new edition, the authors have updated the original material while adding new material of historical and cultural interest. There is a substantial exposition of the recent history of the computation of digits of pi, a discussion of the normality of the distribution of the digits, new translations of works by Viete and Huygen, as well as Kaplansky's never-before-published "Song of Pi." From the reviews of earlier editions: "Few mathematics books serve a wider potential readership than does a source book and this particular on...

  8. Nuclear Information Newsletter. No. 17, October 2015. 45th INIS Anniversary Newsletter

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2015-10-01

    This year marks the 45th anniversary since the creation of INIS. INIS has come a long way since the IAEA Board of Governors approved the International Nuclear Information System in 1969. Officially, INIS started operations in January 1970, but it wasn’t until May 1970 that its first product, the INIS Atomindex, was issued. This date is considered the ‘birth’ of INIS. This special issue of the Nuclear Information Newsletter is devoted to the first forty-five years of INIS. INIS was designed as an international cooperative venture, requiring the active participation of its members, who, over the years, compiled a remarkable collection consisting of more than 3.8 million bibliographic records, making it one of the world's largest collections of published information on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. This spirit of international cooperation is reflected in this issue of the Newsletter. Articles written by many INIS Members, as well as former and current INIS Secretariat staff, bring to light some of the known, and hidden, moments in the history of INIS. Put together, these articles shed light on some of those treasured moments that made INIS what it is today

    Supporting parents in the first three years of a child's life has the potential to produce successful outcomes. Present government initiatives such as Sure Start focus on this age group. An American educational intervention, in the style of a monthly newsletter, was adapted for use in the UK for parents of young children. Topics were presented in an easy-to-read format and focused on infant emotional development, parent interaction and play. Newsletters, called Baby Express were posted at monthly intervals to the family home providing age-paced information which could meet the specific needs of parents at that stage of their child's life. The aim of the study was to determine the applicability of the newsletter to UK parents and evaluate their satisfaction. Sixty home-based interviews were conducted and 95 per cent of mothers reported reading all or part of the newsletter. Changes in parenting style were spontaneously reported by 28 per cent of mothers. This study found that an aged-paced parenting newsletter was an acceptable and useful method of supporting parents in the early months of a child's life and promotes positive changes in parenting behaviour.

    We report the results of a CP violation analysis of the decay B{+/-}-->D{pi{+}pi{-}pi;{0}}K{+/-}, where D{pi{+}pi{-}pi{0}} indicates a neutral D meson detected in the final state pi{+}pi{-}pi{0}, excluding K{S}{0}pi{0}. The analysis makes use of 324 x 10{6}e{+}e{-}-->BB[over ] events recorded by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II e;{+}e;{-} storage ring. Analyzing the pi;{+}pi;{-}pi;{0} Dalitz plot distribution and the B{+/-}-->D{pi{+}pi{-}pi{0}}K{+/-} branching fraction and decay rate asymmetry, we find the following one-standard-deviation constraints on the amplitude ratio and on the weak and strong phases: 0.06pi{+}pi{-}pi{0} decay amplitude.

    We determine the resonant substructure of {ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}} decays using a five-dimensional maximum-likelihood technique to extract the relative fractions and phases of the amplitudes contributing to this final state. We find that two-body decay modes account for at least 76% of all decays. We obtain branching ratios for several decay modes including {ital B}({ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sup {minus}}{ital a}{sub 1}{sup +}) =(9.0{plus minus}0.9{plus minus}1.7)%, {ital B}({ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *0}{rho}{sup 0})=(1.9{plus minus}0.3{plus minus}0.7)%, and {ital B}({ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital K}{sub 1}(1270){sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}) =(1.8{plus minus}0.5 {plus minus}0.8)%. For the decay mode {ital D}{sup 0}{r arrow}{ital {bar K}} {sup *0}{rho}{sup 0}, the {ital {bar K}} {sup *0} and {rho}{sup 0} are found to be polarized with their spins oriented in the direction of their motion as seen from the {ital D}{sup 0} frame.

  12. Virtual Photon Correction to the $K^+\\to\\pi^+\\pi^0\\pi^0$ Decay

    We consider electromagnetic corrections to the non-leptonic kaon decay, $K^+\\to\\pi^+\\pi^0\\pi^0$, due to explicit virtual photons only. The decay amplitude is calculated at one-loop level in the framework of Chiral Perturbation Theory. The interest in this process is twofold: It is actually measured by the NA48 collaboration from one side, and, the value of the amplitude at the $\\pi\\pi$ threshold gives access to $\\pi\\pi$ scattering lengths from the other side. We found that the present correct...

    The decay $B_c^+\\to J/\\psi \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^+$ is observed for the first time, using 0.8 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV collected by the LHCb experiment. The ratio of branching fractions ${\\cal B}(B_c^+\\to J/\\psi \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^+)/{\\cal B}(B_c^+\\to J/\\psi \\pi^+)$ is measured to be $2.41\\pm0.30\\pm0.33$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. The result is in agreement with theoretical predictions.

    We report the measurement of the ratio $\\Gamma(\\eta \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\gamma)/\\Gamma(\\eta \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^0)$ analyzing a large sample of $\\phi \\to \\eta \\gamma$ decays recorded with the KLOE experiment at the DA$\\Phi$NE $e^+ e^-$ collider, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 558 pb$^{-1}$. The $\\eta \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\gamma$ process is supposed to proceed both via a resonant contribution, mediated by the $\\rho$ meson, and a non resonant direct term, connected to the box anomaly. The presence of the direct term affects the partial width value. Our result $R_{\\eta}=\\Gamma(\\eta \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- \\gamma)/\\Gamma(\\eta \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^- \\pi^0)= 0.1838\\pm 0.0005_{stat} \\pm 0.0030_{syst}$ is in agreement with a recent CLEO measurement, which differs by more 3 $\\sigma$ from the average of previous results.

  17. Empirical parameterization of the $K^{+-} \\to \\pi^{+-}\\pi^{0}\\pi^{0}$ decay Dalitz plot

    CERN Document Server

    Batley, J R

    2010-01-01

    As first observed by the NA48/2 experiment at the CERN SPS, the $\\pi^{0}\\pi^{0}$ invariant mass ($M_{00}$) distribution from $K^{\\+-} -> \\pi^{+-}\\pi^{0}\\pi^{0}$ decay shows a cusp-like anomaly at $M_{00}=2m_{+}$, where $m_+$ is the charged pion mass. An analysis to extract the $\\pi\\pi$ scattering lengths in the isospin $I=0$ and $I=2$ states, $a_0$ and $a_2$, respectively, has been recently reported. In the present work the Dalitz plot of this decay is fitted to a new empirical parameterization suitable for practical purposes, such as Monte Carlo simulations of $K^{+-}->\\pi^{+-}\\pi^{0}\\pi^{0}$ decays.

    We report updated branching fraction measurements of the color-suppressed decays {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, D*{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}, D{sup 0}{eta}, D*{sup 0}{eta}, D{sup 0}{omega}, D*{sup 0}{omega}, D{sup 0}{eta}', and D*{sup 0}{eta}'. We measure the branching fractions (x10{sup -4}): {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}) = 2.69 {+-} 0.09 {+-} 0.13, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}) = 3.05 {+-} 0.14 {+-} 0.28, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup 0}{eta}) = 2.53 {+-} 0.09 {+-} 0.11, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup 0}{eta}) = 2.69 {+-} 0.14 {+-} 0.23, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup 0}{omega}) = 2.57 {+-} 0.11 {+-} 0.14, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup 0}{omega}) = 4.55 {+-} 0.24 {+-} 0.39, {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D{sup 0}{eta}') = 1.48 {+-} 0.13 {+-} 0.07, and {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup 0}{eta}') = 1.49 {+-} 0.22 {+-} 0.15. We also present the first measurement of the longitudinal polarization fraction of the decay channel D*{sup 0}{omega}, f{sub L} = (66.5 {+-} 4.7 {+-} 1.5)%. In the above, the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The results are based on a sample of (454 {+-} 5) x 10{sup 6} B{bar B} pairs collected at the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance, with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage rings at SLAC. The measurements are the most precise determinations of these quantities from a single experiment. They are compared to theoretical predictions obtained by factorization, Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) and perturbative QCD (pQCD). We find that the presence of final state interactions is favored and the measurements are in better agreement with SCET than with pQCD.

    The observation of hydrogen-like $\\pi K$ atoms, consisting of $\\pi^- K^+$ or $\\pi^+ K^-$ mesons, is presented. The atoms have been produced by 24 GeV/$c$ protons from the CERN PS accelerator, interacting with platinum or nickel foil targets. The breakup (ionisation) of $\\pi K$ atoms in the same targets yields characteristic $\\pi K$ pairs, called ``atomic pairs'', with small relative momenta in the pair centre-of-mass system. The upgraded DIRAC experiment has observed $349\\pm62$ such atomic $\\pi K$ pairs, corresponding to a signal of 5.6 standard deviations.

  4. Nuclear Data Newsletter, No. 52, November 2011

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2011-11-01

    The Nuclear Data Section was active at the recent IAEA General Conference introducing the importance of nuclear data and stressing how the Nuclear Data Section web site is the ideal place to access such data. As you will see in this newsletter, we are focusing on one of our core activities - the EXFOR database of experimental reaction data. In many ways this part of our work encapsulates all that we do; through our coordination of the NRDC we ensure that scarce resources are used most efficiently, we define the data formats to keep them relevant for new kinds of data, we are part of the technical work of compilation and we organise the training of new compilers. But perhaps our most important role is through our web site; by investing in a wide range of software tools the user is easily able to retrieve the relevant data and display them in many different ways. A new feature is the ability to renormalize or correct the data so that they are kept up to date. I hope that after reading about some of the recent advances in EXFOR you will be inspired to visit the EXFOR part of our web site and try out the new features. As always we welcome feedback or suggestions for improvements, we rely on these to keep the web site fresh and relevant. This newsletter is the last of the current biennium, the two year period that the IAEA uses for its programme and budget planning. It has unfortunately been dominated over the last nine months by the disaster at Fukushima, and the IAEA is looking at the many ways that it can improve the situation and help ensure that such an event is even more unlikely in the future. One thing that was obvious was the need for information relevant to such an event, by experts and laypersons alike, and we are currently looking at ways that such information can be made more accessible. Some of the more important products from the last two years have been RIPL-3 (library of parameters needed for theoretical calculations), new decay data files for actinides

  6. Insect and pest control newsletter. No. 58

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-01-01

    This issue of the Newsletter announces the development of a draft international standard to facilitate the transboundary shipment of sterile insects stands out. This was developed in response to requests from Member States and the private sector for regulation of the shipping of sterile insects. The draft standard will be considered, reviewed and hopefully endorsed over the next years by the Interim Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (ICPM), the governing body of the International Plant protection Convention (IPPC). Also of significance are the Fruit Fly Trapping Guidelines that have been developed to support the harmonization of monitoring procedures for these pest insects in view of the increasing fruit fly related transboundary interactions resulting from the rapidly growing trade in agricultural commodities, as well as travel, transport and tourism. An upcoming event also in the normative area is an FAO/IAEA Expert Meeting on 'Risk Assessment of Transgenic Arthropods' to be held at FAO, Rome from 8-12 April, 2002. The objective of the meeting are to a) assess current status of transgenesis in pest arthropods; b) to assess biosafety concerns for transgenic arthropod release; c) to provide guidance for future risk assessment protocols for case by case analysis; and d) to assess the possibility of establishing a working group under IPPC for setting guidelines for development and use of transgenic insect technology. An important event at the end of 2001 was the Resolution on the Pan African Tsetse and Trypanosomosis Eradication Campaign (PATTEC) adopted by the FAO Conference held in Rome, 2-13 November 2001 (for the full text of the resolution see page 39).. The resolution acknowledges the severity of the trypanosomosis problem in sub-Saharan Africa, and the potential benefits of tsetse elimination, and calls upon affected member nations to include tsetse eradication in their Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers and for the FAO to support them in their efforts to

  7. SSDL newsletter. No. 53, January 2007

    2007-01-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter contains three contributions. The first contribution is a presentation of the SSDL of South Africa (a member of the IAEA/WHO Network since 2001), which has also been nominated as a Regionally Designed Centre for calibration activities in Africa. The second contribution is a brief note on a recently published IAEA guidance document, Technical Reports Series No. 454, on 'Quality Assurance for Radioactivity Measurement in Nuclear Medicine'. The document is currently available on-line at the IAEA Publications Website and in hardcopy. The third contribution is a brief note on the IAEA calibration and Measurement Capabilities (CMCs) and related Quality Management System (QMS). The IAEA CMCs were published in Appendix C of the BIPM Key Comparison Database in June 2002. The IAEA QMS, which is based on ISO/IEC 17025, was peer-reviewed by a panel of four independent experts in 2004. At the invitation of the International Committee of Weights and Measures (CIPM), the IAEA QMS was presented for review by a panel of experts identified by the Regional Metrology Organizations (RMOs). The Joint Committee of the Regional Metrology Organizations and the BIPM JCRB approved the IAEA QMS on 6 October 2006. The IAEA QMS is reviewed every four years by a panel of independent experts, and every two years by selected external members of the IAEA/WHO Standing Advisory Committee. The IAEA will, whenever possible and if resources permit, support SSDL members in the establishment of a QMS based on ISO/IEC 17025

    2013-11-01

    Since the previous newsletter there has been a major effort to restore the functioning of the NDS web pages and to ensure that users have access to the full range of services. This has essentially been achieved and in the process several applications such as IBANDL and LiveChart have been rewritten to improve security and functionality. Although the move of servers from the IAEA data centre to the 'cloud' is transparent to users, the actual availability has recently become superior to what could have been pro- vided on the IAEA network. Automated procedures ensure that the site is updated regularly. While a few niggles remain, we are proud of the service we can now provide. Parts of the webpage are mirrored on sites in India, and recently China, giving flexibility to the many users in these two regions. Another achievement has been the release of an Android app, Isotope Browser, suitable for tablets and smartphones which provides summary information on over 4,000 nuclides. While information from this app is not in the detail available in LiveChart, it is suitable as a summary reference when no internet access is possible or where it is slow. Please visit http://play.google.com/store/apps and search for 'isotope browser' to be able to see all the features available and if you have an Android device, to download the app. There have been several recent staff changes, Rosalinda Rangel Alvarez became the Section Secretary and Andras Vasaros becoming the IT Systems Engineer. Andrej Trkov has been confirmed as a new member of the Nuclear Data Development Unit and we expect him to start in the New Year

They present the first measurement of the ratio of branching fractions {Beta}(B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} D{sub s}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -})/{Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} D{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}) = 1.05 {+-} 0.10(stat.) {+-} 0.22(syst.). They also update their measurement of {Beta}(B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} D{sub s}{sup -} {pi}{sup +})/{Beta}(B{sup 0} {yields} D{sup -} {pi}{sup +}) to 1.13 {+-} 0.08(stat.) {+-} 0.23(syst.) improving the statistical uncertainty by more than a factor of two. They find {Beta}(B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} D{sub s}{sup -} {pi}{sup +}) = [3.8 {+-} 0.3(stat.) {+-} 1.3(syst.)] x 10{sup -3} and {Beta}(B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} D{sub s}{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}) = [8.4 {+-} 0.8(stat.) {+-} 3.2(syst.)] x 10{sup -3}.

    We report on a study of the decay {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +}{omega}{pi}{sup -} with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B-factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Based on a sample of 232 million B{bar B} decays, we measure the branching fraction {Beta}({bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +}{omega}{pi}{sup -}) = (2.88 {+-} 0.21(stat.) {+-} 0.31(syst.)) x 10{sup -3}. We study the invariant mass spectrum of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} system in this decay. This spectrum is in good agreement with expectations based on factorization and the measured spectrum in {tau}{sup -} {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -} {nu}{sub {tau}}. We also measure the polarization of the D*{sup +} as a function of the {omega}{pi}{sup -} mass. In the mass region 1.1 to 1.9 GeV we measure the fraction of longitudinal polarization of the D*{sup +} to be {Lambda}{sub L}/{Lambda} = 0.654 {+-} 0.042(stat.) {+-} 0.016(syst.). This is in agreement with the expectations from heavy-quark effective theory and factorization assuming that the decay proceeds as {bar B}{sup 0} {yields} D*{sup +}{rho}(1450), {rho}(1450) {yields} {omega}{pi}{sup -}.

    pi-N and pi-pi interactions near threshold are uniquely sensitive to the chiral symmetry breaking part of the strong interaction. The pi-N sigma-term value with its implications for nucleon quark structure and the recent controversy concerning the size of the scalar quark condensate have renewed the experimental interest in these two fundamental systems. We report new differential cross sections for the reaction $pi^-p \\to \\pi^0n$ at 27.5 MeV pion incident kinetic energy, measured between $\\t...

    We present an analysis of J/{psi}{yields}{gamma}f{sub 1}(1285), f{sub 1}(1285){yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, using the Mark III detector at SPEAR, based on 5.8x10{sup 6} produced J/{psi} events. We measure B(J/{psi}{yields}{gamma}f{sub 1}(1285), f{sub 1}(1285){yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -})=(4.8{+-}1.3{+-}0.9)x10{sup -5}. We obtain a new measurement of the absolute branching ratio of J/{psi}{yields}{gamma}f{sub 1}(1285). The mixing angle of the f{sub 1}(1285) and the f{sub 1}(1420) in the 1{sup ++} nonet is determined. (orig.).

    We report the results from a study of the full sample of $~6.031 x 10^{7} K^{\\pm} \\to \\pi^{\\pm} \\pi^{0} \\pi^{0}$ decays recorded by the NA48/2 experiment at the CERN SPS. As first observed in this experiment, the $\\pi^{0} \\pi^{0}$ invariant mass (M_00) distribution shows a cusp-like anomaly in the region around $M_{00} = 2m_{+}$, where m_{+} is the charged pion mass. This anomaly has been interpreted as an effect due mainly to the final state charge exchange scattering process $\\pi^{+}\\pi^{-} \\to \\pi^{0} \\pi^{0}$ in $K^{\\pm} \\to \\pi^{\\pm} \\pi^{+} \\pi^{-}$ decay. Fits to the M_{00} distribution using two different theoretical models provide the presently most precise determination of $a_{0}-a_{2}$, the difference between the pi pi S-wave scattering lengths in the isospin I = 0 and I = 2 states. Higher-order pi pi rescattering terms, included in the two models, allow also an independent, though less precise, determination of a_2.

    Pi In The Sky (PITS) consists of a loose collection of virtual globe (VG) activities with a slight mathematical twist, wherein students search for interesting circular structures on the surface of Earth (Moon or other planets) and measure the circumference C and diameter D of each structure, using the built-in VG measure tool, in order to determine experimental values of pi from the C/D ratios. Examples of man-made circular structures visible using VG browsers include Fermilab and l"Arc de Triomphe roundabout; quasi-circular natural structures include certain volcano calderas and impact craters. Since a circle is but a special case of an ellipse, a natural extension of the activity involves making similar measurements of perimeter P, semi-major axis a, and semi-minor axis b of a visible elliptical structure (such as one of the thousands of elliptical Carolina bays, enigmatic depressions on the Atlantic Coast of North America) and solving for pi using Ramanujan's first approximation for the dependence of the perimeter of an ellipse on a and b. PITS exercises can be adapted to a wide range of student ages and teaching goals. For instance, K-6 students could measure C and D of the huge irrigation circles near Circle, Texas, to discover pi in the same way they might infer pi from measurements of coffee-can lids in math class. Middle school and high school students could move beyond man-made circles to consider the near-circularity of certain volcano calderas and impact craters in earth science units, make measurements for Olympus Mons on Mars or Crater Kepler on the moon in astronomy units, or search for circularity among Arctic thermokarst lakes as an introduction to climate change in tundra environments in environmental science units; such studies might ignite student curiosity about planetary processes. High school students of analytic geometry could examine several elliptical Carolina bays and calculate not only values of pi (as noted above) but also determine the
