    Three large LHC projects in which the Saclay laboratory has contributed in a major way have recently come to their successful completion: the LHC quadrupoles, the CMS solenoid and the ATLAS barrel toroid. These superconducting magnets were initially designed and partly prototyped in Saclay, their components manufactured in European industry, assembled and tested in industry or at CERN in the framework of large collaborations. The barrel toroid "Common Project" was conducted by the ATLAS project management and involved, in addition to the Saclay "Magnet Lab", the Italian LASA and CERN. You may recall the various steps which led to the commissioning of the barrel toroid in the cavern with full current in November of last year. The initial "race track" magnet was tested in Saclay where the B0 prototype coil was also built. The eight full size coils were assembled and individually tested in building 180 at CERN, before being lowered to the cavern and assembled. To mark these achievements, a happy gathering of m...

    The high energy behaviour of the s-channel Regge residues is inferred from three plausible requirements. The resulting s-channel helicity amplitudes allow-in a dual sense-the following t-channel interpretation: for -t>or=0.25 GeV/sup 2/ the flip amplitude has the form of a t-channel Regge pole, while the non-flip amplitude looks like a Regge cut. Finally, a quantitative comparison of the predictions with the data available for the set of SU(3) related processes pi N CEX, KN, KN CEX and pi /sup -/p to eta n is performed, covering the energy range 2Serpukhov energies) and the range of momentum transfer 0.25

    Low dose and non-targeted effect studies continue to attract the attention of a growing number of radiobiologists. Experimental setups based on light ion microbeams constitute a tool of choice for this kind of investigations. However, a careful attention must be given to experimental conditions, as setup-induced stress levels should be well below those induced by the irradiation itself. Here, we present the current status of the single-particle microbeam facility that has been developed these last years at the nuclear microprobe of Saclay. The driving idea was to build a facility in which local irradiation studies are performed in an environment close to cellular biology standards. This facility includes unique features, such as (i) a compact setup that allows easy access and vertical irradiation mode, (ii) a collimated beam that can be mechanically positioned under the desired cells at a very fast speed, avoiding the requirement of a focusing element and (iii) a controlled environment (temperature, CO{sub 2}, humidity) that allows performing of very long term experiments on cultured cells. Fluorescent techniques are implemented and permit in situ monitoring of cellular responses to irradiations. Several radiobiological studies are already underway and this will be illustrated with recent results regarding DNA damage and reactive oxygen species signaling time courses following targeted irradiations.

    This paper deals only with solid-state physics experiments carried out on outgoing beams: rather than giving a general review of the work performed, if refers to only a few of the most important studies or those nearest completion. These are being made with the experimental beams of the two Saclay reactors EL-2, with a central flux of 10{sup 13} n/cm{sup 2}, and - since 1958 - EL-3, whose central flux is equal ta 10{sup 14} n/cm{sup 2}. The experiments are being carried out by two separate groups of physicists, employing different techniques, namely neutron diffraction using a crystal spectrometer, and inelastic scattering using a time-of-flight spectrometer. (author) [French] Cet expose ne relate que des experiences de physique du solide faites sur des faisceaux sortis; plutot que de donner une revue de l'ensemble des travaux effectues, on ne cite que quelques etudes que l'on peut considerer comme plus essentielles ou mieux achevees. On utilise les faisceaux experimentaux des deux piles de Saclay, EL-2 dont le flux au centre est de 10{sup 13}n/cm{sup 2} et, depuis 1958, EL-3 pour laquelle il est egal a 10{sup 14} n/cm{sup 2}. Les experiences sont realisees par deux groupes de physiciens distincts, employant des techniques differentes, la diffraction des neutrons qui utilise un spectrometre a cristal, et la diffusion inelastique avec un spectrometre a temps de vol.

    We have studied the Cabibbo suppressed and color suppressed two body decays B to psi rho (psi omega or psi a sub 1). Using a data sample of 5.12 million B decays collected with the CLEO II detector we find the 90% confidence level upper limits for branching fractions of B sup 0 -> psi rho sup 0 and B sup 0 -> to be 2.5 x 10 sup - sup 4 and 2.7 x 10 sup - sup 4 , respectively. We also update the branching fraction B sup - -> psi pi sup - to be (5.6 +- 2.7) x 10 sup - sup 5.

    This annual report issued by the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland takes a look at work done at the institute in the year 2008. The institute's findings around the topics of superconductivity and magnetism revealed using neutron scattering and muon spin resonance are reported on. The use of the high spatial resolution of synchrotron light at the Swiss Light Source (SLS) made it possible to create new nano-structures and reveal microscopic details of the functioning of photo-catalysts, fuel cells and bio-molecules. Work performed in the biology, energy, and environmental sciences area is reported on. The dating of glacier ice, the enhancement of the NMR sensitivity for potential medical diagnosis, the development of efficient SPECT tracers and the assessment of long-term safety of radioactive waste repositories are dealt with. On the operational side of the PSI accelerators, two world records are noted. New facilities such as the X-ray Free Electron Laser planned at the PSI are discussed. Further topics discussed include user facilities and technology transfer. Finally, a comprehensive list of publications completes the report.

    This comprehensive report published by the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) on work done in 2007 presents selected highlights including work done on muon spin studies and investigations of polymer films, the chemical properties of element 112 as well as the anti-tumour effects of radionuclides. In its fifth year of operation, results from the SLS (Swiss Light Source) reported on include shedding light on superconductivity and understanding magnetism at the nanoscale level. In the energy research departments, progress is reported on that has been achieved in the conversion of biomass to methane fuel and work leading towards the generation of hydrogen by solar thermochemistry. Combustion research is reported on which, among other themes, focused on efficiency in gas turbine processes. Neutron studies deal with safety aspects of present nuclear reactors and thermal hydraulics with aspects concerning reactors of the future. Safety is also the issue as far as how ions migrate in waste repositories or in the operation of the MEGAPIE liquid metal target. The Competence Center Energy and Mobility of the ETH domain, for which PSI acts as the facilitator, started operation at the beginning of 2006, and several projects have been successfully launched. The reports in this volume represent only a fraction of the research undertaken at PSI in 2007. The report also deals with know-how transfer and includes a list of publications on the work done in the various areas of research.

    Selected highlights in this years report include muon spin studies and investigations of polymer films, the chemical properties of element 112 and the antitumour effects of radionuclides. In its fifth year of operation, results from the SLS include shedding light on superconductivity and understanding magnetism at the nanoscale. From the energy research departments we hear that progress has been achieved in the conversion of biomass to methane fuel, and towards the generation of hydrogen by solar thermochemistry. Combustion research, among other themes, focused on efficiency in gas turbine processes. Neutronic studies dealt with safety aspects of present nuclear reactors, thermal hydraulics with reactors of the future. safety is also the issue in how ions migrate in waste repositories or in the operation of the MEGAPIE liquid metal target. The Competence Center Energy and Mobility of the ETH domain, for which PSI acts as he facilitator, started operation at the beginning of 2006, and several projects have been successfully launched. The reports in this volume are only a fraction of the varied research undertaken at PSI in the past year; for more information visit our website www.psi.ch. (author)

  2. On photoproduction of psi -mesons

    Zakharov, V I; Okun, Lev Borisovich

    1975-01-01

    Possible causes of the smallness of the psi -meson photoproduction cross section are discussed: a) suppression due to smallness of the scattering cross section of a real psi -meson due to the small magnitude of the residue of the Pomeranchouk trajectory; b) suppression due to inability of a virtual psi -meson to produce a pomeron shower during a time E/sub gamma //m/sub psi //sup 2/ and hence the diffraction transition of a virtual psi with q/sup 2/=0 into a real one with q/sup 2/=m/sub psi //sup 2/ is small; c) suppression due to smallness of the transition psi to gamma ; in this case the vertex g/sub e/ psi /sub mu /e gamma /sub mu /e is primary and not due to a virtual photon. It is shown that a choice between these possibilities can be made by studying experimentally electroproduction of psi -mesons and their photoproduction by nuclei. (16 refs).

    Using data collected with the CLEO detector operating at the CESR e+e- collider at sqrt s = 3.97-4.26 GeV, we study 15 charmonium decay modes of the psi(4040), psi(4160), and Y(4260) resonances. We confirm, at 11$\\sigma$ significance, the BaBar Y(4260) --> pi+ pi- J/psi discovery, make the first observation of Y(4260) --> pi0 pi0 J/psi (5.1 sigma), and find the first evidence for Y(4260) --> K+ K- J/psi (3.7 sigma). We measure e+e- cross-sections at sqrt s = 4.26 GeV as sigma( pi+ pi- J/psi ) = 58 +12-10 +- 4 pb, sigma( pi0 pi0 J/psi ) = 23 +12 -8 +- 1 pb, and sigma( K+ K- J/psi ) = 9 +9 -5 +- 1 pb, in which the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. Upper limits are placed on other decay rates from all three resonances.

    This comprehensive report on the activities at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Switzerland reviews work done in 2010. Apart from reports on several projects being carried out at PSI, particular attention is given to the realization of the new Free-Electron Laser facility (SwissFEL) whose core was put into operation in 2010. The ability of the SwissFEL to rapidly initiate a catalytic process will allow the characterization of short-lived intermediate states and will aid in the development of more efficient catalysts. The various component parts of the facility are discussed in detail. Initial operation of the system and examples of the future use of the facility are discussed. The report goes on to report on research foci and selected highlights of work done. These include the Swiss Synchrotron Light Source which has seen another year of many highlights. Increasing experimental capabilities based on resonant soft X-ray absorption are described and four-dimensional measurements of the interface-kinetics of solid-liquid mixtures during coarsening are reported on. The handling of nano-volume crystallisation drops in the macromolecular crystallography beamline is described and the use of X-rays and neutrons at the micrometre scale to elucidate a metal artefact from the Bronze Age is discussed, as is the investigation of newly discovered iron-based superconductors with muons and neutrons. Neutron grating interferometry is reported on and over 14 years of successful operation of SINQ, PSI's Spallation Neutron Source, is looked back on, Fundamental muon physics is discussed and emergent magnetic monopoles that have been directly observed in a two-dimensional array of nanoscale magnets arranged in a honeycomb geometry is reported on. Nano field-emitter arrays as high-brightness electron beam sources are described. G protein-coupled receptors, the largest group of trans-membrane signal transducers in the human genome, as targets for pharmaceutical intervention are

    The construction of the third second-generation main quadrupole magnet prototype for LHC has been completed at CEA/Saclay in November 2000. The magnet was tested at 1.9 K. Similarly to the two first ones, this prototype has exceeded the operating current in one training step and exhibited excellent training memory after a thermal cycle. This paper describes the quench performance and quench start localization determined by means of voltage-taps and a quench antenna system developed in collaboration with KEK. As this magnet was equipped with capacitive gauges, the stresses during cool-down and powering have been recorded and are in agreement with FE computations. The newly designed quench heaters have improved efficiency and reproducibility compared to those of the first generation. Magnetic measurements have been performed at various stages. The cold measurements show minor differences with those at room temperature and are similar to those of the two first magnets of this design. These results prove that the...

    The production of rare radioactive ion beam (RIB) far from the valley of stability is one of the final purposes of the Spiral2 facility in Caen. The RIB will be produced by impinging a deuteron beam onto a carbon sample to produce a high neutron flux, which will interact with a uranium target. The primary deuteron beam is produced by an ion source based on ECR plasma generation. The deuteron source and the low energy beam transport (LEBT) has been assembled and tested at CEA Saclay. Diagnostics from other laboratories were implemented on the LEBT in order to characterize the deuteron beam produced and compare it to the initial simulations. The ion source has been based on a SILHI-type source, which has demonstrated good performances in pulsed and continuous mode, and also a very good reliability on long term operation. The 5 mA of deuteron beam required at the RFQ entrance is extracted from the plasma source at the energy of 40 kV. After a brief description of the experimental set-up, this article reports on the first beam characterization experiments.

    The behavior of the fission metal cesium and the fission gases krypton and xenon in the Saclay Spitfire Loop SSL-1 test has been compared to that predicted using General Atomic reference data and computer code models. This is the first in a series of analyses planned in order to provide quantitative validation of HTGR fission product design methods. In this analysis, the first attempt to rigorously verify fission product design methods, the FIPERQ code was used to model the diffusion of cesium graphite and release to the coolant stream. The comparisons showed that the cesium profile shape in the graphite web and the partition coefficient between fuel rod matrix material and fuel element graphite were correctly modeled, although the overall release was significantly underpredicted. Uncertainties in the source term (fissile particle failure fraction) and total release to the coolant precluded an accurate appraisal of the validity of FIPERQ. However, several recommendations are presented to improve the applicability of future in-pile test data for the validation of fission metal release codes. The half-life dependence of fission gas release during irradiation was found to be in good agreement with the model used in the reference design materials, providing assurance that this aspect of the fission gas release predictions is properly modeled.

    The ARTEMIS facility in Saclay France measures, on average, 4500 samples a year for French organizations working in an array of fields, including environmental sciences, archeology and hydrology. In response to an increasing demand for the isolation of specific soil compounds and organic water fractions, we were motivated to evaluate our ability to reduce microgram samples using our standard graphitization lines and to measure the graphite thus obtained with our 3MV NEC Pelletron AMS. Our reduction facility consists of two fully automated graphitization lines. Each line has 12 reduction reactors with a reduction volume of 18 ml for the first line and 12 ml for the second. Under routine conditions, we determined that we could reduce the samples down to 10 {mu}g of carbon, even if the graphitization yield is consequently affected by the lower sample mass. Our results when testing different Fe/C ratios suggest that an amount of 1.5 mg of Fe powder was ideal (instead of lower amounts of catalyst) to prevent the sample from deteriorating too quickly under the Cs+ beam, and to facilitate pressing procedures. Several sets of microsamples produced from HOxI standard, international references and backgrounds were measured. When measuring {sup 14}C-free wood charcoal and HOxI samples we determined that our modern and dead blanks, due to the various preparation steps, were of 1.1 {+-} 0.8 and 0.2 {+-} 0.1 {mu}g, respectively. The results presented here were obtained for IAEA-C1, {sup 14}C-free wood, IAEA-C6, IAEA-C2 and FIRI C.

    From research activities focused on civil and military uses of nuclear energy and developed after the second world war, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) has been able to diversify its activities following 2 axis. First, the Gantry proton-therapy that is characterized by a compact equipment and an accurate 3-dimensional treatment of tumors (more than 260 patients have been treated by Gantry from 1996 to 2005). Secondly, new technologies in the fields of energy and transport. Nevertheless, PSI has been able to keep a high of valuation of its staff in nuclear engineering and materials that are the core of its activities. The main equipment of PSI are: -) SLS (Swiss Light Source): a synchrotron radiation source that is both a microscope and an X-ray source; -) SINQ: a neutron source based on spallation reactions; -)S{mu}S: a muon source; and -) the Philips accelerator that is used in radiochemistry and the production of isotopes used for the treatment of eye tumors. PSI has established a large cooperation with French research laboratories on issues like: nuclear reactor safety, synchrotron radiation, the transmutation of nuclear wastes, the design of a source of ultra-cold neutrons, or the development of a hydrogen-fueled light vehicle. The total budget of PSI for 2007 reached 174.2 million euros. (A.C.)

    Vallcorba, R.; Mayri, C.; Gastineau, B.; Maksoud, W. Abdel; Donati, A.; Genini, L.; Gibier, D.; Godon, P.; Lottin, J. P.; Mailleret, C.; Queinec, Y.

    The R3B-Glad magnet cold mass has been tested in the test facility at CEA Saclay previously used for testing W7X coils. This superconducting dipole has been cooled down by indirect cooling, and its 21 tons were maintained at around 4.8 K by means of helium thermosiphon. For this, the facility was adapted and connected to the cold mass to approximate actual conditions in its final configuration at GSI (Darmstadt, Germany). The magnet cooling down as well as the two-slope current ramping up to the nominal current of 3584 A was successfully achieved in December 2013. This paper presents the cryogenic distribution process, and shows the relevant results.

    We compute the effect on the J/psi production in nucleus-nucleus collisions of the absorption of the J/psi inside the colliding nuclei. Using a value of the absorptive J/psi-nucleon cross section which reproduces the A-dependence of the J/psi cross section in hadron-nucleus collisions, we obtain much less suppression than that measured by the NA38 Collaboration. The effect due to a strongly absorbed (A/sup 0.7/) component is also discussed. In order to explain the NA38 results one needs a very large contribution (50%) of the latter component.

    One possible application of Nb/sub 3/Sn, whose superconducting properties far exceed those of NbTi, is the fabrication of short and powerful quadrupole magnets for the interaction regions of large particle accelerators. In some projects, as in the future linear collider TESLA, the quadrupole magnets are inside the detector solenoid and must operate in its background field. This situation gives singular Lorentz force distribution in the ends of the magnet. To learn about Nb/sub 3/Sn technology, evaluate fabrication techniques and test the interaction with a solenoidal field, DAPNIA /SACM at CEA/Saclay has started the manufacturing of a 1-m-long, 56- mm-single-aperture quadrupole magnet model. The model relies on the same coil geometry as the LHC arc quadrupole magnets, but has no iron yoke. It will produce a nominal field gradient of 211 T/m at 11,870 A. The coils are wound from Rutherford-type cables insulated with glass fiber tape, before being heat-treated and vacuum-impregnated with epoxy resin. Laminated,...

    We present a precision study of the $\\psip\\to\\pi^0 J/\\psi$ and $\\eta J/\\psi$ decay modes. The measurements are obtained using $106\\times10^6$ $\\psi'$ events accumulated with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII $\\ee$ collider operating at a center-of-mass energy corresponding to the $\\psip$ mass. We obtain $\\mathcal{B}(\\psip\\to\\pi^0 J/\\psi)=(1.26\\pm0.02{\\rm (stat.)}\\pm0.03{\\rm (syst.)})\\times 10^{-3}$ and $\\mathcal{B}(\\psip\\to\\eta J/\\psi)=(33.75\\pm0.17{\\rm (stat.)}\\pm0.86{\\rm (syst.)})\\times 10^{-3}$. The branching fraction ratio $R=\\frac{\\mathcal{B}(\\psip\\to\\pi^0 J/\\psi)}{\\mathcal{B}(\\psip\\to\\eta J/\\psi)}$ is determined to be $(3.74\\pm0.06 {\\rm(stat.)}\\pm0.04 {\\rm(syst.)})\\times 10^{-2}$. The precision of these measurements of $\\mathcal{B}(\\psip\\to\\pi^{0} J/\\psi)$ and $R$ represent a significant improvement over previously published values.

    Describes the conception and installation of the hot laboratory in Saclay (CEA, France). The construction ended in 1958. The main aim of this laboratory is to examine fuel rods of EL2 and EL3 as well as nuclear fuel studies. It is placed in between both reactors. In a first part, the functioning and specifications of the hot lab are given. The different hot cells are described with details of the ventilation and filtration system as well as the waste material and effluents disposal. The different safety measures are explained: description of the radiation protection, decontamination room and personnel monitoring. The remote handling equipment is composed of cutting and welding machine controlled with manipulators. Periscopes are used for sight control of the operation. In a second part, it describes the equipment of the hot lab. The unit for an accurate measurement of the density of irradiated uranium is equipped with an high precision balance and a thermostat. The equipment used for the working of irradiated uranium is described and the time length of each operation is given. There is also an installation for metallographic studies which is equipped with a manipulation bench for polishing and cleaning surfaces and a metallographic microscope. X-ray examination of uranium pellets will also be made and results will be compared with those of metallography. The last part describes the hot cells used for the manipulation of plutonium salts. The plutonium comes from the reprocessing plant and arrived as a nitric solution. Thus these cells are used to study the preparation of plutonium fluorides from nitric solution. The successive operations needed are explained: filtration, decontamination and extraction with TBP, purification on ion exchangers and finally formation of the plutonium fluorides. Particular attention has been given to the description of the specifications of the different gloveboxes and remote handling equipment used in the different reaction steps and

    In this chapter I address both classical and quantum mechanical modeling approaches to psi phenomena including those pertaining to the role of psi phenomena such as the psi-mediated instrumental response (PMIR) and relative need-serving qualities of psi, psychokinesis as a primary psi process, and psi as a product of evolution via Darwinian theory. In addition, I address classical models including electromagnetic models, energy field models, and the zero-point field model. I address the assoc...

  12. Using neuroimaging to resolve the psi debate.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moulton, Samuel T; Kosslyn, Stephen M

    2008-01-01

    Abstract Parapsychology is the scientific investigation of apparently paranormal mental phenomena (such as telepathy, i.e., "mind reading"), also known as psi. Despite widespread public belief in such phenomena and over 75 years of experimentation, there is no compelling evidence that psi exists. In the present study, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used in an effort to document the existence of psi. If psi exists, it occurs in the brain, and hence, assessing the brain directly should be more sensitive than using indirect behavioral methods (as have been used previously). To increase sensitivity, this experiment was designed to produce positive results if telepathy, clairvoyance (i.e., direct sensing of remote events), or precognition (i.e., knowing future events) exist. Moreover, the study included biologically or emotionally related participants (e.g., twins) and emotional stimuli in an effort to maximize experimental conditions that are purportedly conducive to psi. In spite of these characteristics of the study, psi stimuli and non-psi stimuli evoked indistinguishable neuronal responses-although differences in stimulus arousal values of the same stimuli had the expected effects on patterns of brain activation. These findings are the strongest evidence yet obtained against the existence of paranormal mental phenomena.

  13. EDP Sciences Inclusive production of J/$\\psi$ and $\\psi'$ mesons at the LHC

    Cisek, Anna

    2016-11-29

    We discuss the prompt production of $J/\\psi$ mesons in proton-proton collisions at the LHC within a NRQCD $k_{t}$-factorization approach using Kimber-Martin-Ryskin (KMR) unintegrated gluon distributions (UGDF). We include both direct color-singlet production ($gg \\to J/\\psi$g) as well as a feed-down from $\\chi_{c} \\to J/\\psi \\gamma$ and $\\psi' \\to J/\\psi X$. The production of the decaying mesons ($\\chi_{c}$ or $\\psi'$)is also calculated within NRQCD $k_{t}$-factorization. The corresponding matrix elements for $gg \\to J/\\psi$, $gg \\to \\psi'$ and $gg \\to \\chi_{c}$ include parameters of the nonrelativistic spatial wave functions of quarkonia at $r=0$, which are taken from potential models from the literature. We get the ratio of the corresponding of the cross sections for $\\chi_{c}(2)$-to-$\\chi_{c}(1)$ much closer to experimental data than obtained in recent analyses. Differential distributions in rapidity of $J/\\psi$ and $\\psi'$ are calculated and compared to experimental data of the ALICE and LHCb collaboratio...

    The Mark III detector at the SPEAR e/sup +/e/sup -/ storage ring at SLAC has accumulated a data sample of 5.8 x 10/sup 6/ J/psi produced. The status of the xi(2230) observed in the radiative J/psi decay is described. The status of the glueball candidates eta(1440) (iota(1440)) and f/sub 2/(1720) (theta(1720)) are probed with a systematic comparison between the radiative and the hadronic decays of J/psi. Finally, an understanding of quark correlations is attempted from a systematic study of the J/psi decaying into Vector-Pseudoscalar, Vector-Tensor and Vector-Scalar nonets.

    Full Text Available “How can Psi Chi best partner with international psychologists to expand the honor society world-wide?” This has been an important question since 2009, when the 1,100 chapters of Psi Chi in the United States voted to become “The International Honor Society in Psychology”. This report updates and expands on a unique symposium offered at the 120th meeting of the American Psychological Association in Orlando, Florida, in August of 2012 - the first symposium on the Presidential theme of “Building Bridges” between Psi Chi and international psychology [8]. Here, seven leaders in international psychology in North and South America join to address different aspects of this timely question--with many suggestions on how to “build bridges” to expand Psi Chi globally. It was in part due to this historic symposium that in 2013 Guatemala became the first nation in Latin America, and Russia the first nation in mainland Europe to launch a chapter of Psi Chi.

    The 1996 Radon Intercomparison Exercise at PSI was organized by the PSI Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements. A total of 14 laboratories, companies and institutions participated with radon gas detectors and measuring instruments. The detectors and instruments were exposed in the PSI radon chamber during seven days in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of about 6000 Bqm{sup -3}. Comparison of the results of electret ionization chambers, track etch detectors and measuring instruments with the PSI target value showed the criteria for traceability and reproducibility demanded by the Federal Office for Health for the acknowledgement of Swiss Radon Gas Measurement Laboratories to be fulfilled for all participants. Exposure of track etch detectors stored for more than one year demonstrated that this detector type can suffer sensitivity loss by a too long storage period. (author) figs., tabs., refs.

    The relative rates of B-meson decays into $J/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$ mesons are measured for the three decay modes in pp collisions recorded with the LHCb detector. The ratios of branching fractions ($\\mathcal{B}$) are measured to be \\begin{equation*} \\begin{array}{lll} \\frac{\\mathcal{B}( B^+ \\to \\psi(2S) K^+)}{\\mathcal{B}( B^+ \\to J/\\psi K^+ )} &=& 0.594 \\pm 0.006 (stat) \\pm 0.016 (syst) \\pm 0.015\\,(R_{\\psi}), \\\\ \\frac{\\mathcal{B}( B^0 \\to \\psi(2S) K^{*0})}{\\mathcal{B}( B^0 \\to J/\\psi K^{*0})} &=& 0.476 \\pm 0.014 (stat) \\pm 0.010 (syst) \\pm 0.012\\,(R_{\\psi}), \\\\ \\frac{\\mathcal{B}^{0}_{s}( B^0_s \\to \\psi(2S)\\phi)}{\\mathcal{B}( B^0_s \\to J/\\psi\\phi)} &=& 0.489 \\pm 0.026 (stat) \\pm 0.021 (syst) \\pm 0.012\\,(R_{\\psi}), \\end{array} \\end{equation*} where the third uncertainty is from the ratio of the $\\psi(2S)$ and $J/\\psi$ branching fractions to $\\mu\\mu$.

    Thin-target proton irradiations of actinides constitute the experimental ATHENA (actinide transmutation using high energy accelerators) programme at PSI related to accelerator-based transmutation. The purpose of the irradiations is to provide experimental data for the validation of high-energy fission models in nucleon-meson transport codes such as HETC, with emphasis on the mass yield distribution of spallation and fission products from actinides. The paper gives a summary of the analysis and calculational methods used at PSI and compares predictions of isobaric production cross-sections with values derived from {gamma}-spectroscopic measurements obtained in a first irradiation experiment with {sup 238}UO{sub 2}. An up-to-date status of the ATHENA programme is also given, including first results of a second irradiation experiment performed in February 1995. (author) 4 figs., 2 tabs., 12 refs.

    Long term tests of PSI membranes based on radiation-grafted FEP and ETFE films were carried out and FEP-based membranes were evaluated by monitoring the in-situ membrane area resistance measured by a current pulse method. By modifying our irradiation procedure and using the double crosslinking concept we obtain reproducible membrane cell lifetimes (in term of in-situ membrane resistance) of greater than 5000 hours at 60-65{sup o}C. Preliminary tests at 80-85{sup o}C with lifetimes of greater than 2500 demonstrate the potential long term stability of PSI proton exchange membranes based on FEP over the whole operating temperature range of low-temperature polymer electrolyte fuel cells. Radiation grafted PSI membranes based on ETFE have better mechanical properties than those of the FEP membranes. Mechanical properties are particularly important in large area cells and fuel cell stacks. ETFE membranes have been tested successfully for approximately 1000 h in a 2-cell stack (100 cm{sup 2} active area each cell). (author) 4 figs., 4 refs.

  6. Decays of J/psi (3100) to baryon final states

    1982-05-01

    We present results for the decays of psi(3100) into baryon and hyperon final states. The sample studied here consists of 1.3 million produced psi decays. The decays into nonstrange baryons agree well with currently established results, but with better statistics. In addition, significant resonance formation in multibody final states is observed. The decay psi ..-->.. anti pp..gamma.., the first direct photon decay of the psi involving baryons in the final state, is presented and the theoretical implications of the decays are briefly explored. Several new decays of the psi involving strange baryons are explored, including the first observations of three body final states involving hyperons. The I-spin symmetry of the strong decay psi ..-->.. baryons has clearly been observed. The reduced matrix elements for psi ..-->.. B anti B are presented for final states of different SU(3) content. The B/sub 8/ anti B/sub 8/ results are in excellent agreement with the psi being an SU(3) singlet as are the results for psi ..-->.. B/sub 10/ anti B/sub 10/. We present the first evidence for the SU(3) violating decays of the type psi ..-->.. B/sub 8/ anti B/sub 10/ + c.c.. Angular distributions for psi ..-->.. B/sub 8/ anti B/sub 8/ are presented and compared with theoretical predictions. Statistics are limited, but the data tends to prefer other than a 1 + Cos/sup 2/theta distribution.

    We present measurements of the branching fractions for J/Psi -> e+e- and mu+mu- using 3M Psi(2S) decays collected with the CLEO detector operating at the CESR e+e- collider. We obtain B(J/Psi -> e+e-) = (5.945 \\pm 0.059 \\pm 0.042)% and B(J/Psi -> mu+mu-) = (5.960 \\pm 0.059 \\pm 0.049)%, leading to an average of B(J/Psi -> l+l-) = (5.953 \\pm 0.042 \\pm 0.043)%$ and a ratio of B(J/Psi -> e+e-) / B(J/Psi -> mu+mu-) = (99.7 \\pm 1.1 \\pm 0.7)%$, all consistent with, but more precise than, previous measurements.

    The cross sections for inelastic photoproduction of J/{psi} and {psi}' mesons have been measured in ep collisions with the ZEUS detector at HERA, using an integrated luminosity of 468 pb{sup -1} collected in the period 1996-2007. The {psi}' to J/{psi} cross section ratio was measured in the range 0.55psi} cross sections were measured for 0.11 GeV. Theoretical predictions within the non-relativistic QCD framework including NLO colour-singlet and colour-octet contributions were compared to the data, as were predictions based on the k{sub T}-factorisation approach.

    Full Text Available This article aims to examine the interdisciplinary relations between History and psi knowledge, attempting to elaborate a comparative parallel between History of Mentalities, History of Imaginary, and also other historiographical modalities that interact with Psychology. The intention is to clarify some central aspects related to these fields of History and to discuss the historiography concerning each one of these modalities, in order to examine authors as Johannes Huizinga, Marc Bloch, Lucien Febvre, Robert Mandrou, Carlo Ginzburg, Philippe Ariès, Michel Vovelle, Georges Duby, Jacques Le Goff e Jean Delumeau, and at the same time discuss influences of Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Wilhelm Reich and others.

    The CMS experiment, to be installed at the future p-p collider LHC at CERN, foresees the use of Micro-Strip Gas Counters ( MSGC's) for the outer layers of its central tracker. Present developments focus on the reliability of MSGC's in the harsh radiation environment imposed by the LHC. This paper reports on tests of two baseline CMS MSGC's identical to those foreseen for the barrel part of the tracker, in a high intensity pion beam at the Paul Scherrer Institute ( PSI), in april 1999.

    The most recent results obtained by experiment NA50 show that the $J /\\psi$ cross-section per nucleon-nucleon collision in semi-peripheral Pb-Pb reactions is "normally" suppressed in the sense that it follows the trend already observed from p-p and up to the most central S-U reactions. A clear change of behaviour is observed for more central Pb-Pb collisions which could be due to the transition of normal nuclear matter to its predicted Quark-Gluon Plasma state

    One major objective of structural genomics efforts, including the NIH-funded Protein Structure Initiative (PSI), has been to increase the structural coverage of protein sequence space. Here, we present the target selection strategy used during the second phase of PSI (PSI-2). This strategy, jointly devised by the bioinformatics groups associated with the PSI-2 large-scale production centers, targets representatives from large, structurally uncharacterized protein domain families, and from structurally uncharacterized subfamilies in very large and diverse families with incomplete structural coverage. These very large families are extremely diverse both structurally and functionally, and are highly overrepresented in known proteomes. On the basis of several metrics, we then discuss to what extent PSI-2, during its first 3 years, has increased the structural coverage of genomes, and contributed structural and functional novelty. Together, the results presented here suggest that PSI-2 is successfully meeting its objectives and provides useful insights into structural and functional space.

  14. Radiative decays of PSI(3684). [Branching fraction, upper limits

    Whitaker, J.S.

    1976-09-01

    Results of studies of radiative decays of psi(3684) are presented. The data for this work were obtained with the Magnetic Detector at the electron-positron storage ring SPEAR. These results indicate the existence of three states chi, with masses 3415, 3500, and 3550 MeV, produced in radiative decays of psi'. There is evidence for a fourth state with mass either 3340 or 3455 MeV. From study of the psi(3684) inclusive photon spectrum, the branching fraction for psi(3684) ..-->.. ..gamma.. chi(3415) was determined to be 7.5 +- 2.6%. Branching fraction upper limits of 1 to 4% at the 90% confidence level were obtained for monochromatic photon production above 250 MeV by psi or psi'.

  15. Charmonium spectroscopy from inclusive photons in J/psi and psi' decays

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gaiser, J.E.

    1982-03-01

    Comparing our precise measurements for the E1 transitions psi' ..-->.. ..gamma.. chi/sub J/ with theory has underscored the importance of including (i) spin and relativistic corrections, (ii) variations in the 2P and 1S wave function shapes resulting from corrections, and (iii) coupling to closed and open decay channels. Considering our best measured total widths, i.e., GAMMA/sub tot/(eta/sub c) and GAMMA/sub tot(chi/sub o/), it appears that higher order QCD corrections are important and large. Our measurements for the E1 rates chi/sub J/ ..-->.. ..gamma.. J/sub psi/ suffer from the large errors in GAMMA/sub tot/(chi/sub J/); our best value is for GAMMA(chi/sub o/ ..-->.. ..gamma.. J/psi), and the agreement here is slightly better with the corrected theories. Both the potential models and the lowest order QCD derived predictions are capable of consistency with our observed HFS, although QCD radiative corrections appear to go in the wrong direction (less splitting than measured). For the best measured M1 allowed pseudoscalar transition, J/psi ..-->.. ..gamma.. eta/sub c/, the naive potential model and dispersion theory predictions are roughly a factor of 2 large. Perhaps corrections to the M1 formula are important.

    An ATLAS Barrel Toroid conductor was tested in the Saclay High Current Test Facility. The conductor is a Nb-Ti Rutherford cable imbedded in a high purity aluminum stabilizer. The conductor's width was reduced from 57 mm to 30 mm in order to be able to use an existing sample holder. We tried to measure the critical current in background fields of up to 3 T. The field was produced by a 0.8 m long superconducting dipole magnet. The test station was equipped with a superconducting transformer transferring maximum primary and secondary currents of respectively 174 A and 80 kA. The secondary current was measured with flux coils and with a superconducting Direct Control Current Transducer (DCCT), a modified version of the ``Macc+{''} 600 A commercial DCCT from Hitec, which was operated at currents of up to 57 kA. This paper reports on the performance of the test station, on the results of the quench current measurements performed on the stabilized ATLAS conductor and on the difficulties to measure the critical curre...

    Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Phi ({Phi}) and psi ({Psi}) angles determine sterile protective immunity. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Modified peptide's tendency to assume a regular conformation related to a PPII{sub L}. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Structural modifications in mHABPs induce Ab and protective immunity. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer mHABP backbone atom's interaction with HLA-DR{beta}1{sup Asterisk-Operator} is stabilised by H-bonds. -- Abstract: Modified HABP (mHABP) regions interacting with HLA-DR{beta}1{sup Asterisk-Operator} molecules have a more restricted conformation and/or sequence than other mHABPs which do not fit perfectly into their peptide binding regions (PBR) and do not induce an acceptable immune response due to the critical role of their {Phi} and {Psi} torsion angles. These angle's critical role was determined in such highly immunogenic, protection-inducing response against experimental malaria using the conformers (mHABPs) obtained by {sup 1}H-NMR and superimposed into HLA-DR{beta}1{sup Asterisk-Operator }-like Aotus monkey molecules; their phi ({Phi}) and psi ({Psi}) angles were measured and the H-bond formation between these molecules was evaluated. The aforementioned mHABP propensity to assume a regular conformation similar to a left-handed polyproline type II helix (PPII{sub L}) led to suggesting that favouring these conformations according to their amino acid sequence would lead to high antibody titre production and sterile protective immunity induction against malaria, thereby adding new principles or rules for vaccine development, malaria being one of them.

Responding to Law and Urry’s (2004) call for a more “messy” social science, we offer an impressionistic assemblage ethnography, where we pick up and consider the psy...... -disciplinary cogs that we happen upon in our everyday lives as lecturers in Australian initial teacher education. We offer an incomplete list of some of these cogs, and indicate the ways in which they uphold psy-disciplinary knowledges, and the psy- gaze, as relevant and significant.

  19. J/Psi Production from Electromagnetic Fragmentation in Z decay

    OpenAIRE

    Fleming, Sean

    1994-01-01

    The rate for $ Z^{0}\\to J/ \\psi + \\ell^{+}\\ell^{-} $ is suprisingly large with about one event for every million $Z^{0}$ decays. The reason for this is that there is a fragmentation contribution that is not suppressed by a factor of $M^{2}_{\\psi}/M^{2}_{Z}$. In the fragmentation limit $ M_{Z}\\to\\infty$ with $E_{\\psi}/M_{Z}$ fixed, the differential decay rate for $ Z^{0}\\to J/ \\psi + \\ell^{+}\\ell^{-} $ factors into electromagnetic decay rates and universal fragmentation functions. The fragment...

    Land-use changes (intensification, extensification and abandonment) in agriculture and forestry are considered to be the major driving forces for changes in ecosystem function and dynamics, and in landscape patterns in Europe. The aim of the EU project ECOMONT is to investigate the potential risks due to land-use change in the mountainous ecosystem. Fluxes of sensible and latent heat, water vapour, CO{sub 2} and pollutants between the vegetation and the atmosphere are sensitive and critical factors characterising landscape function. The Atmospheric Pollution Section of the PSI contributes to this project with the measurements of these fluxes. The measuring techniques, the experimental setup and first results are presented.

    Results on diffractive photoproduction of psi(2S) mesons are presented using data collected between 1996 and 2000 with the H1 detector at the HERA ep collider. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 77 pb^(-1). The energy dependence of the diffractive psi(2S) cross section is found to be similar to or possibly somewhat steeper than that for J/psi mesons. The dependences of the elastic and proton dissociative psi(2S) photoproduction cross sections on the squared momentum transfer t at the proton vertex are measured. The t-dependence of the elastic channel, parametrised as e^(bt), yields b_(el)^(psi(2S))=(4.31+-0.57+-0.46) GeV^(-2), compatible with that of the J/psi. For the proton dissociative channel the result b_(pd)^(psi(2S))=(0.59+-0.13+-0.12) GeV^(-2) is 2.3 standard deviations smaller than that measured for the J/psi. With proper account of the individual wavefunctions theoretical predictions based on perturbative QCD are found to describe the measurements well.

    Fifteen radon measurement services participated in the 2006 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 7th to 21st, 2006. Twelve of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurements. Radon gas detectors (etched-track, electronic and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 1090 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 366 kBqhm{sup -3}.

  7. J/psi production in pp collisions from ALICE

    CERN Multimedia

    CERN. Geneva

    2012-01-01

    The ALICE experiment studied J/psi production in the mu+mu- and e+e- decay channels. Inclusive cross sections were measured at both forward and central rapidity down to zero transverse momentum. The results are compared with NRQCD calculations and, for the pp sample collected at sqrt(s)=2.76 TeV, are used as a reference for the determination of nuclear effects on J/psi production in Pb-Pb. At central rapidity, the fraction of J/psi coming from B-decays has been evaluated down to p_T=1.3 GeV/c. In addition, the J/psi yield has been found to linearly increase as a function of the charged hadron multiplicity produced in the collision. Finally, the first LHC results on J/psi polarization, an essential observable for the understanding of the production mechanisms and for theory comparisons, will be presented.

    2017-12-01

    The Edwin B. Newman Graduate Research Award is sponsored jointly by Psi Chi, the national honor society in psychology, and the APA. The award is presented annually to the psychology graduate student who submits the best research paper that was published or presented at a national, regional, or state psychological association conference during the past calendar year. The Edwin B. Newman Graduate Research Award was established in 1979. The award was established to recognize young researchers at the beginning of their professional lives and to commemorate both the 50th anniversary of Psi Chi and the 100th anniversary of psychology as a science (dating from the founding of Wundt's laboratory). It was named for Dr. Edwin B. Newman, the first national president of Psi Chi (1929) and one of its founders. He was a prolific researcher and a long-time chair of the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. Newman was a member of APA's Board of Directors, served as recording secretary of the board from 1962 to 1967, and was parliamentarian for the APA Council of Representatives for many years. He served both Psi Chi and APA in a distinguished manner for half a century. The Edwin B. Newman Graduate Research Award is given jointly by Psi Chi and APA. Members of the 2017 Edwin B. Newman Award Committee were Shawn Carlton, PhD, Psi Chi representative; Christina Frederick-Recascino, PhD; John Norcross, PhD, APA representative; Karenna Malavanti, PhD, Psi Chi representative; Steven Kohn, PhD, Psi Chi representative; Warren Fass, PhD, Psi Chi representative; Chris Lovelace, PhD, Psi Chi representative; and Cathy Epkins, PhD, APA representative.

    Color-suppressed decays of $B$ mesons to final states with $\\psi(2S)$ mesons have been observed with the CLEO detector. The branching fractions for the decays $B^+ \\to \\psi(2S) K^+$, $B^+ \\to \\psi(2S) K^*(892)^+$, $B^0 \\to \\psi(2S) K^0$, and $B^0 \\to \\psi(2S) K^*(892)^0$ are measured to be (7.8 +- 0.7 +- 0.9) 10^{-4}$, (9.2 +- 1.9 +- 1.2) 10^{-4}$, (5.0 +- 1.1 +- 0.6) 10^{-4}$, and (7.6 +- 1.1 +- 1.0) 10^{-4}$, respectively, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The first measurement of the longitudinal polarization fraction is extracted from the angular analysis of the $B \\to \\psi(2S) K^*(892)$ candidates: $\\Gamma_L / \\Gamma = 0.45 +- 0.11 +- 0.04 $. Our measurements of the decays $B^0 \\to \\psi(2S) K^0$ and $B^+ \\to \\psi(2S) K^*(892)^+$ are first observations.

    Takeda, Y.

    1996-06-01

    The author describes work at PSI on thermohydraulics, thermal shock, and material tests for mechnical properties. In the presentation, the focus is on two main programs. (1) SINQ LBE target: The phase II study program for SINQ is planned. A new LBE loop is being constructed. The study has the following three objectives: (a) Pump study - design work on an electromagnetic pump to be integrated into the target. (b) Heat pipe performance test - the use of heat pipes as an additional component of the target cooling system is being considered, and it may be a way to futher decouple the liquid metal and water coolant loops. (c) Mixed convection experiment - in order to find an optimal configuration of the additional flow guide for window cooling, mixed convection around the window is to be studied. The experiment will be started using water and then with LBE. (2) ESS Mercury target: For ESS target study, the following experimental studies are planned, some of which are exampled by trial experiments. (a) Flow around the window: Flow mapping around the hemi-cylindrical window will be made for optimising the flow channels and structures, (b) Geometry optimisation for minimizing a recirculation zone behind the edge of the flow separator, (c) Flow induced vibration and buckling problem for a optimised structure of the flow separator and (d) Gas-liquid two-phase flow will be studied by starting to establish the new experimental method of measuring various kinds of two-phase flow characteristics.

  13. Muon Elastic Scattering with MUSE at PSI

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kohl M.

    Full Text Available The proton radius puzzle is the disagreement between the much more precise radius determined from muonic hydrogen spectroscopy and the numerous atomic hydrogen and electron scattering determinations. The puzzle has several possible resolutions, including physics beyond the Standard Model, missing conventional physics, and errors or underestimated uncertainties in the extraction of the radius from the data. New experiments are needed to confirm and / or resolve the puzzle. The MUon Scattering Experiment (MUSE recently approved at PSI has been designed to help resolve the puzzle by measuring the radius in a way not yet done. Similar to electron scattering, the radius will be extracted from the observed change of the charge form factor with momentum transfer. The experiment uses the πM1 beamline to provide a mixed secondary muon and electron (and pion beam of either positive or negative charge. The comparison of muon and electron scattering measured simultaneously determines the consistency of the form factors in the two cases with high precision. Comparison of yields from both charge signs will at the same time disentangle the effect of two-photon exchange. The proton charge radius can be extracted from each set of scattering data. The physics case and status of MUSE will be discussed.

    The J/ psi production in Pb-Pb interactions induced by 158 GeV/c incident Pb ions is studied as a function of centrality, as estimated from the neutral transverse energy or, alternatively, from the very forward hadronic energy of the collision. The J/ psi yield exhibits a similar pattern with a first drop for mid-peripheral collisions and a steady decrease for the most central reactions. Conventional hadronic models axe unable to fairly reproduce this trend which finds a natural explanation in a deconfined quark-gluon phase scenario. The J / psi transverse momentum distributions and their dependence with centrality are also reviewed in this presentation. (20 refs).

    This NMSBA-sponsored project involves the attachment of antibodies to polymeric silicon (p-Si) surfaces, with the ultimate goal of attaching antibodies to nanowires for Vista Therapeutics, Inc. (Santa Fe, NM). This presentation describes the functionalization of p-Si surfaces. the activation of terminal carboxylates on these surfaces, the conjugation of antibodies, and the analyses undertaken at each step. The results of this work show that antibody conjugation is possible on p-Si coatings using the well-known EDC/NHS activation chemistry.

  16. Bridging the PSI Knowledge Gap: A Multi-Scale Approach

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2015-01-08

    Plasma-surface interactions (PSI) pose an immense scientific hurdle in magnetic confinement fusion and our present understanding of PSI in confinement environments is highly inadequate; indeed, a recent Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee report found that 4 out of the 5 top five fusion knowledge gaps were related to PSI. The time is appropriate to develop a concentrated and synergistic science effort that would expand, exploit and integrate the wealth of laboratory ion-beam and plasma research, as well as exciting new computational tools, towards the goal of bridging the PSI knowledge gap. This effort would broadly advance plasma and material sciences, while providing critical knowledge towards progress in fusion PSI. This project involves the development of a Science Center focused on a new approach to PSI science; an approach that both exploits access to state-of-the-art PSI experiments and modeling, as well as confinement devices. The organizing principle is to develop synergistic experimental and modeling tools that treat the truly coupled multi-scale aspect of the PSI issues in confinement devices. This is motivated by the simple observation that while typical lab experiments and models allow independent manipulation of controlling variables, the confinement PSI environment is essentially self-determined with few outside controls. This means that processes that may be treated independently in laboratory experiments, because they involve vastly different physical and time scales, will now affect one another in the confinement environment. Also, lab experiments cannot simultaneously match all exposure conditions found in confinement devices typically forcing a linear extrapolation of lab results. At the same time programmatic limitations prevent confinement experiments alone from answering many key PSI questions. The resolution to this problem is to usefully exploit access to PSI science in lab devices, while retooling our thinking from a linear and de

It is found that the results arrived at with this main working approach here is fairly in good agreement with both the measured data and the results obtained on the basis of some other models of the `standard' variety. Impact and implications of this comparative study have also been precisely highlighted in...

    On September 17, 2009, a radiological emergency management exercise took place on the site of Saclay site of the French Atomic Energy Commission. The selected scenario was the in-air melting of a fuel element from the nuclear research reactor 'Osiris'. The aim of the exercise was to reach a level of releases leading to the distribution of stable iodine in Villiers-le-Bacle. In order to optimize the exercise, it was important to simulate all the measuring devices used by the actors, at any place and any time during the crisis. Considering the large amount of data to provide in real time, it was unrealistic to use computation software, such as atmospheric dispersion code, the day of the exercise. Current software response delay is not compatible with the operational aspect of an exercise. It was therefore decided to develop a method to quickly answer each actor's request, whatever the measurement, time or location. This article describes the method and the tools, referencing the scenario, which allowed the simulation of these quantities. Twelve measurements were simulated at 1000 points, in a spatial area of 60 km{sup 2} and for 18 calculation times. All of the data represents more than 200 000 values, and the preparation took 6 weeks. This made it possible for the scenario writers to respond to all actors' requests in a very short time. The participants used approximately 250 simulated measurements (location and time), representing about 1000 values. (authors)

  19. $J/\\Psi$ mass shift in nuclear matter

    The $J/\\Psi$ mass shift in cold nuclear matter is computed using an effective Lagrangian approach. The mass shift is computed by evaluating $D$ and $D^*$ meson loop contributions to the $J/\\Psi$ self-energy employing medium-modified meson masses. The modification of the $D$ and $D^*$ masses in nuclear matter is obtained using the quark-meson coupling model. The loop integrals are regularized with dipole form factors and the sensitivity of the results to the values of form-factor cutoff masses is investigated. The $J/\\Psi$ mass shift arising from the modification of the $D$ and $D^*$ loops at normal nuclear matter density is found to range from $-16$~MeV to $-24$~MeV under a wide variation of values of the cutoff masses. Experimental perspectives for the formation of a bound state of $J/\\Psi$ to a nucleus are investigated.

    We present an evaluation of the strong couplings JD^(*)D^(*) and JD^(*)D^(*)pi by an effective field theory of quarks and mesons. These couplings are necessary to calculate pi+J/psi --> D^(*)+barD^(*) cross sections, an important background to the J/psi suppression signal in the quark-gluon plasma. We write down the general effective lagrangian and compute the relevant couplings in the soft pion limit and beyond.

    Twelve radon measurement services participated in the 2004 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 5{sub th} to 16{sub th}, 2004. Ten of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurement. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 5516 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 1458 kBqhm{sup -3}. This exposure was above the measuring range of participating LST electret ionisation chambers. Thus, these detector were exposed for a shorter period leading to a radon gas exposure of 401 kBqhm{sup -3} at an average radon gas concentration of 5538 Bqm{sup -3}. Additional five etched-track detectors of an approved measuring service were purchased by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health for a spot check. Two of these were exposed over the complete exposure interval, two were removed from the exposure chamber together with the LST electret ionisation chambers and another was used as transport detector. The results of these detectors showed an even larger difference to the target value and a larger standard deviation than the detectors submitted for the intercomparison exercise by the measuring service.

Ten of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurement. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 3467 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 914 kBqhm{sup -3}. This exposure was above the measuring range of participating LST electret ionisation chambers. Thus, these detector were exposed for a shorter period leading to a radon gas exposure of 416 kBqhm{sup -3} at an average radon gas concentration of 3472 Bqm{sup -3}. Additional six electret ionisation chamber detectors of an approved measuring service were purchased by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health for a spot check.

    Twelve radon measurement services participated in the 2003 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 13th to 24th, 2003. Ten of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurement. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 1950 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 517 kBqhm{sup -3}. Additional five electret-detectors of an approved measuring service were purchased by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health for a spot check. Two of these were exposed as described above, two had an exposure of 247 kBqhm{sup -3} at an average radon concentration of 1960 Bqm{sup -3} and another was used as transport detector. The results of these detectors showed a larger difference to the target value and a larger standard deviation than the detectors submitted for the intercomparison exercise by the measuring service. The unexposed transport detector showed a notedly too high signal. For the first time in this series of intercomparisons, no open etched-track detectors participated. Thus, the generation of aerosol particles with burning candles was not necessary. (author)

    Charmonium production by 350 GeV/c negative pions incident on tungsten, copper and silicon has been studied in the WA92 experiment. J/psi and psi' mesons are identified through their decays into muon pairs and are selected in the Feynman-chi range chi sub F > 0. Inclusive J/psi and psi' cross-sections and J/psi differential cross-sections as functions of chi sub F and p sub T sup 2 are measured. Assuming the relation sigma sigma sub 0 A supalpha between the nuclear cross-section, sigma, and the atomic mass, A, of a target nucleus, a fit to J/psi data for different targets yields alpha = 0.87 +- 0.05 +- 0.04. Taking alpha = 0.87, the cross-sections per nucleon for J/psi and psi' are sigma sub 0 (J/psi) 216 +- 5 +- 13 nb and sigma sub 0 (psi') = 28 +- 8 +- 11 nb, and their ratio is sigma sub 0 (psi')/sigma sub 0 (J/psi) = 0.13 +- 0.05 +- 0.01. The measurements of charmonium production are compared with results on open-charm production previously obtained in the same experiment. The ratio between the J/psi cross...

    Between Nov 14 and Nov 20, 1997, the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut performed the 1997 Radon Intercomparison Exercise. Radon gas detectors and instruments were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber during seven days in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 3860 Bqm{sup -3}. The majority of the participants at this intercomparison were Swiss Radon Gas Measurement Laboratories acknowledged by the Swiss Federal Office for Health. Criteria for this acknowledgement are a deviation of the measurement results to the reference value below 15% (traceability criterion) and a standard deviation of the mean of five detector measurement results below 15% (reproducibility criterion). With the exception of three participants, the results of electret ionisation chambers, track etch detectors and measuring instruments fulfilled the demanded traceability and reproducibility criteria.

    Fifteen radon measurement services participated in the 2002 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 7th to 18th, 2002. Eleven of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant traceability to national or international standards. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers, scintillation cells and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 2700 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 700 kBqhm{sup -3}. Additional five detectors of an approved measuring service were purchased by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health for a spot check. Two of these were exposed as described above, two had an exposure of 380 kBqhm{sup -3} at an identical average radon concentration and another was used as transport detector. The results of these detectors showed a larger difference to the target value and a larger standard deviation than the detectors submitted for the intercomparison exercise by the measuring service. Similar to the intercomparison exercises of 1998, 1999 and 2000 aerosol particles were generated continuously during the intercomparison with a burning candle to increase the equilibrium factor F between radon progeny and radon gas to values observed under living conditions. Nevertheless, open etched-track detectors showed a significant deviation to the target value. The relative air humidity in the radon chamber during the intercomparison was 70% due to water vapour production by the burning candles. As was observed in the past, one electret detector showed a result much higher than the target radon concentration. The cause may be a discharge across the surface of the

    Using the data for 24.5x10^6 psi(2S) produced in e^+e^- annihilations at sqrt{s}=3686 MeV at the CESR-c e^+e^- collider and 8.6x10^6 J/psi produced in the decay psi(2S)->pi^+pi^-J/psi, the branching fractions for psi(2S) and J/psi decays to pairs of pseudoscalar mesons, pi^+pi^-, K^+K^-, and K_S K_L, have been measured using the CLEO-c detector. We obtain branching fractions Br(psi(2S)->pi^+pi^-)=(7.6+-2.5+-0.6)x10^-6, Br(psi(2S)->K^+K^-)=(74.8+-2.3+-3.9)x10^-6, Br(psi(2S)->K_S K_L)=(52.8+-2.5+-3.4)x10^-6, and Br(J/psi->pi^+pi^-)=(1.47+-0.13+-0.13)x10^-4, Br(J/psi->K^+K^-)=(2.86+-0.09+-0.19)x10^-4, Br(J/psi+-K_S K_L)=(2.62+-0.15+-0.14)x10^-4, where the first errors are statistical and the second errors are systematic. The phase differences between the amplitudes for electromagnetic and strong decays of psi(2S) and J/psi to 0^{-+} pseudoscalar pairs are determined by a Monte Carlo method to be \\delta(psi(2S)_{PP}=(110.5^{+16.0}_{-9.5})^o and \\delta(J/psi)_{PP}=(73.5^{+5.0}_{-4.5})^o. The difference between the...

  13. J/{psi} production and decay at the Z resonance

    1994-10-13

    In the Large Electron Positron collider (LEP) bunches of electrons and positrons are brought in collision. At a collision energy of 91.2 GeV the Z resonance is excited. The Z boson, the uncharged mediator of the weak force, decays into a particle and an antiparticle almost instantaneously. The probability that in this process heavy quarks charm-anticharm(c anti c) and bottom-antibottom(b anti b) are formed is {approx}12% and {approx}15% respectively. Thus, LEP provides an ideal environment to make precision measurements in the heavy quark sector. The data for this thesis was collected with the L3 detector from 1990-1992. L3 is one of the four experiments at LEP. The integrated luminosity collected by L3 in this period is 43.5 pb{sup -1}. The L3 detector was designed to measure e{sup +}e{sup -} collisions up to 200 GeV with special emphasis on high resolution measurements of photons, electrons and muons. The detector is installed within a magnet providing 0.5 T field. It consists of subdetectors to detect and measure the direction and momentum/energy of charged particles, electromagnetic particles, hadrons and muons. In this thesis the production of the 1{sup 3} S{sub 1} (the j/{psi} meson) and the 2{sup 3} S{sub 1} (the {psi}` meson) and the c anti c bound states are investigated. The leptonic decays of the two mesons (J/{psi}, {psi}`{yields}l{sup +}l{sup -}, l=e, {mu}) provide the cleanest signals of heavy quarks. In this thesis, the {psi}` and J/{psi} mesons have been tagged via their decay into a muon pair. From the invariant mass distribution of the {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} pairs the branching ratio for J/{psi} production at the Z, Br(Z{sup 0}{yields}J/{psi}+X), was determined to be 4.0{+-}0.6(stat.){+-}0.4(sys.)x10{sup -3} while the branching ratio for {psi}` production at the Z is smaller than <2x10{sup -3}.

  14. A measurement of the {psi}' to J/{psi} production ratio in 920 GeV proton-nucleus interactions

    Ratios of the {psi}' over the J/{psi} production cross sections in the dilepton channel for C, Ti and W targets have been measured in 920 GeV proton-nucleus interactions with the HERA-B detector at the HERA storage ring. The {psi}' and J/{psi} states were reconstructed in both the {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} and the e{sup +}e{sup -} decay modes. The measurements covered the kinematic range -0.35{<=}x{sub F}{<=}0.1 with transverse momentum p{sub T}{<=}4.5 GeV/c. The {psi}' to J/{psi} production ratio is almost constant in the covered x{sub F} range and shows a slow increase with p{sub T}. The angular dependence of the ratio has been used to measure the difference of the {psi}' and J/{psi} polarization. All results for the muon and electron decay channels are in good agreement: their ratio, averaged over all events, is R{sub {psi}}{sub '}({mu})/R{sub {psi}}{sub '}(e)=1.00{+-}0.08{+-}0.04. This result constitutes a new, direct experimental constraint on the double ratio of branching fractions, (B'({mu}).B(e))/(B({mu}).B'(e)), of {psi}'' and J/{psi} in the two channels. (orig.)

    Nominally undoped ZnO films were deposited by reactive sputtering on the lightly boron-doped (p-) and heavily boron-doped (p+) silicon substrates. The sputtered ZnO films were identified to be highly ⟨002⟩ oriented in crystallinity and n type in electrical conductivity. The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics revealed that the ZnO /p--Si heterojunction exhibited well-defined rectifying behavior while the ZnO /p+-Si heterojunction did not possess rectifying function. As for the ZnO /p+-Si heterojunction, it was electroluminescent to a certain extent in the visible region under sufficient forward bias with the positive voltage on the silicon substrate, while it emitted ultraviolet light characteristics of near-band-edge emission of ZnO under the reverse bias, which significantly dominated the visible emission. In contrast to the ZnO /p+-Si heterojunction, the ZnO /p--Si heterojunction did not exhibit detectable electroluminescence (EL) under either forward or reverse bias. The I-V characteristics and EL mechanism of the above-mentioned heterojunctions have been tentatively explained in terms of the energy-band structures of the heterojunctions.

    Exclusive $J/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$ vector meson production has been observed in the dimuon channel using the LHCb detector. The cross-section times branching fractions to two muons with pseudorapidities between 2.0 and 4.5 are measured to be \\begin{equation*} \\sigma_{pp\\rightarrow J/\\psi (\\rightarrow \\mu^{+} \\mu^{-})} (2.0 <\\eta_{\\mu^{\\pm}}< 4.5) = 307 \\pm 21 \\pm 36~\\text{pb}, \\end{equation*} \\begin{equation*} \\sigma_{pp\\rightarrow \\psi(2S) (\\rightarrow \\mu^{+} \\mu^{-})} (2.0 <\\eta_{\\mu^{\\pm}}< 4.5) = 7.8 \\pm 1.3 \\pm 1.0~\\text{pb}, \\end{equation*} where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic. The measurements are found to be in good agreement with results from previous experiments and theoretical predictions. The $J/\\psi$ photoproduction cross-section has been measured as a function of the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy. The results are consistent with measurements obtained at HERA and confirm a similar power law behaviour for the photoproduction cross-se...

    We present the x{sub F} and p{sub T} differential cross sections of J/{psi} and {psi}{sup {prime}}, respectively, in the ranges {minus}0.05{lt}x{sub F}{lt}0.25 and p{sub T}{lt}3.5 GeV/c. The data samples are constituted by about 12000 J/{psi} and 200 {psi}{sup {prime}} produced in proton-silicon interactions at 800 GeV/c and decaying into opposite sign muons. The x{sub F} and p{sub T} distributions are compared with recent results from experiments E789 at the same energy and to leading order QCD predictions using the MRS D0 parametrization for the parton structure function. The measured shapes of the differential cross sections, except for the d{sigma}/dx{sub F} at small x{sub F}, agree very well with the prediction, even though their value is quite a bit larger than the prediction. We also present the cos{theta} differential cross section of the J/{psi} which indicates unpolarized production in contrast with color octet models predictions. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

  1. Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI Technique for Landslide Characterization and Monitoring

    Full Text Available : The measurement of landslide superficial displacement often represents the most effective method for defining its behavior, allowing one to observe the relationship with triggering factors and to assess the effectiveness of the mitigation measures. Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI represents a powerful tool to measure landslide displacement, as it offers a synoptic view that can be repeated at different time intervals and at various scales. In many cases, PSI data are integrated with in situ monitoring instrumentation, since the joint use of satellite and ground-based data facilitates the geological interpretation of a landslide and allows a better understanding of landslide geometry and kinematics. In this work, PSI interferometry and conventional ground-based monitoring techniques have been used to characterize and to monitor the Santo Stefano d’Aveto landslide located in the Northern Apennines, Italy. This landslide can be defined as an earth rotational slide. PSI analysis has contributed to a more in-depth investigation of the phenomenon. In particular, PSI measurements have allowed better redefining of the boundaries of the landslide and the state of activity, while the time series analysis has permitted better understanding of the deformation pattern and its relation with the causes of the landslide itself. The integration of ground-based monitoring data and PSI data have provided sound results for landslide characterization. The punctual information deriving from inclinometers can help in defining the actual location of the sliding surface and the involved volumes, while the measuring of pore water pressure conditions or water table level can suggest a correlation between the deformation patterns and the triggering factors.

    We briefly review recent results which we have obtained in the study of J/psi+Z production at the LHC. Considering our NLO computation in the Colour Evaporation Model (CEM) as an upper theory limit for the single-parton-scattering contributions, we claim that the existing data set from ATLAS points at a dominant double-parton-scattering contribution with an effective cross section smaller than that for jet-related observables. As a side product of our analysis, we have computed, for the first time, the one-loop QCD corrections to the J/psi P_T-differential cross section in the CEM.

    Fifteen radon measurement services participated in the 2001 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 2nd to 11th, 2001. Eleven of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant traceability to national or international standards. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionization chambers) and instruments (ionization chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 6100 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 1300 kBqhm{sup -3}. Due to the low aerosol concentration during this intercomparison exercise, etched-track detectors without diffusion chamber showed a significant deviation to the reference exposure and an increase of the standard deviation of an ensemble of five detectors compared to intercomparisons with aerosol concentration in the specified range of these detectors. Radon monitors with electrostatic precipitation, which were recently introduced on the Swiss market, showed insufficient factory calibration and correction of the influence of air humidity on the measured radon gas activity concentrations.

    The branching ratio of J/psi-->K_S K_L is measured with improved precision to be B(J/psi-->K_S K_L) = (1.82\\pm 0.04\\pm 0.13)\\times 10^{-4}. using J/psi data collected with the Beijing Spectrometer (BESII) at the Beijing Electron-Positron Collider. This result is used to test the perturbative QCD ``12%'' rule between psi(2S) and J/psi decays and to investigate the relative phase between the three-gluon and one-photon annihilation amplitudes in J/psi decays.

  14. Intercomparison of radon gas detectors 1998 at PSI; Die Vergleichsmessung 1998 fuer Radongasmessgeraete am PSI

    The Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut performed the 1998 Radon Intercomparison Exercise. During Oct 23rd to 29th, 1998, radon gas detectors and instruments were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 2100 Bqm{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 290 kBqhm{sup -3}. The aim of this intercomparison exercise was to check the performance of electret ionisation chambers, track etch detectors and measuring instruments at a rather low radon gas exposure. Limits expected to befulfilled were a deviation of the measurement results to the reference radon gas concentration value of less than 15% (traceability criterion) and a standard deviation of the mean of five detector measurement results of less than 15% (reproducibility criterion). The mean value of five measuring results delivered by each measurement laboratory participating with detectors as well as each measuring instrument result lay within the traceability limits given above; an exceeding of the allowed reproducibility of 15 % for a few samples of five detector measuring results was partly due to single results to be regarded as outliers. Participants were asked in this intercomparison to estimate the uncertainty at the 95% confidence level for a single detector measuring result. Compared with results from other methods used to estimate this uncertainty, reported uncertainty values were low. Taking extended field tests delivering realistic uncertainty estimates as basis, uncertainty estimates derived from exposures in controlled chamber conditions showed to be too small. (author)

  15. J/psi and psi(2S) production in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV

    2012-02-01

    A measurement of the J/psi and psi(2S) production cross sections in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC is presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 37 inverse picobarns. Using a fit to the invariant mass and decay length distributions, production cross sections have been measured separately for prompt and non-prompt charmonium states, as a function of the meson transverse momentum in several rapidity ranges. In addition, cross sections restricted to the acceptance of the CMS detector are given, which are not affected by the polarization of the charmonium states. The ratio of the differential production cross sections of the two states, where systematic uncertainties largely cancel, is also determined. The branching fraction of the inclusive B to psi(2S) X decay is extracted from the ratio of the non-prompt cross sections to be: BR(B to psi(2S) X) = (3.08 +/- 0.12(stat.+syst.) +/- 0.13(theor.) +/- 0.42(BR[PDG])) 10^-3

    A measurement of the J/$\\psi$ and psi(2S) production cross sections in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$=7 TeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC is presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 37 inverse picobarns. Using a fit to the invariant mass and decay length distributions, production cross sections have been measured separately for prompt and non-prompt charmonium states, as a function of the meson transverse momentum in several rapidity ranges. In addition, cross sections restricted to the acceptance of the CMS detector are given, which are not affected by the polarization of the charmonium states. The ratio of the differential production cross sections of the two states, where systematic uncertainties largely cancel, is also determined. The branching fraction of the inclusive B to psi(2S) X decay is extracted from the ratio of the non-prompt cross sections to be: $BR(B \\to \\psi(2S) X) = (3.08 \\pm 0.12(stat.+syst.) \\pm 0.13(theor.) \\pm 0.42(BR_{PDG}))\\times 10^{-3}$.

    With 1.06 x 10(8) psi(3686) events collected with the BESIII detector, the branching fraction of psi(3686) -> omega K+K- is measured to be (1.54 +/- 0.04 +/- 0.11) x 10(-4). This is the most precise result to date, due to the largest psi(3686) sample, improved signal reconstruction efficiency, good

    To understand the direct J/{psi}+X{sub non-c} {sub anti} {sub c} production mechanism in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation, in this work, we propose to measure the inclusive J/{psi} plus light hadrons (LH) production at B-factories and present a detailed study on its QED production due to {psi}(2S) feed-down, where the {psi}(2S) are produced in e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}{psi}(2S)+{gamma} and e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}{psi}(2S) +f anti f, f = lepton, lightquark, and QED contribution to direct J/{psi}+q anti q production with q = u, d, s quark. We find that the QED contribution is huge in the whole phase space region, but can be reduced largely and is in the same order as the QCD contribution when a suitable cut on the angel {theta}{sub J/{psi}} between J/{psi} and the e{sup +}e{sup -} beam is made. In this way, the cross section of J/{psi} + LH QCD production % which was predicted theoretical at next-to-leading order QCD together with relativistic correction, can be obtained by subtracting the QED contribution from the experimental measurement on inclusive J/{psi} plus light hadrons. To help to remove the QED background, we also calculate the angular and momentum distribution of J/{psi} in the QED contribution.

    The data sample of $\\Lambda_b^0\\to J/\\psi p K^-$ decays acquired with the LHCb detector from 7 and 8~TeV $pp$ collisions, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$, is inspected for the presence of $J/\\psi p$ or $J/\\psi K^-$ contributions with minimal assumptions about $K^- p$ contributions. It is demonstrated at more than 9 standard deviations that $\\Lambda_b^0\\to J/\\psi p K^-$ decays cannot be described with $K^- p$ contributions alone, and that $J/\\psi p$ contributions play a dominant role in this incompatibility. These model-independent results support the previously obtained model-dependent evidence for $P_c^+\\to J/\\psi p$ charmonium-pentaquark states in the same data sample.

    Using data samples collected at sqrt(s) = 3.686GeV and 3.650GeV by the BESII detector at the BEPC, the branching fraction of psi(2S) -> 3(pi+pi-) is measured to be [4.83 +- 0.38(stat) +- 0.69(syst)] x 10^-4, and the relative branching fraction of J/psi -> 2(pi+pi-) to that of J/psi -> mu+mu- is measured to be [5.86 +- 0.19(stat) +- 0.39(syst)]% via psi(2S) -> (pi+pi-)J/psi, J/psi -> 2(pi+pi-). The electromagnetic form factor of 3(pi+pi-) is determined to be 0.21 +- 0.02 and 0.20 +- 0.01 at sqrt(s) = 3.686GeV and 3.650GeV, respectively.

    Full Text Available The turbulent transport in the edge of fusion reactors can be conveniently simulated by linear plasma devices with long duty cycles. At high input power steady state plasma discharges at PSI-2 exhibit intermittent fluctuations similar to the edge of toroidal plasma devices. As their influence on erosion predictions is obscured by time-averaged measurements a time-resolved Thomson scattering setup is installed and tested at PSI-2. Aided by a fast CMOS camera and conditional averaging a time resolution of 3 µs was achieved for temperature and density profile evolution in Argon and Deuterium discharges. A 40 kHz, m = 1 oscillation with 50 µs coherence time and 1 eV electron temperature amplitude was identified in Argon, while in Deuterium intermittent events were associated with a 4 eV rise in edge temperature and a 10% reduction of bulk density.

    CP violation in the interference between mixing and decay of $B_{s}\\to J/\\psi ~\\phi$ is characterised by the weak phase $\\Phi$ which is predicted to be $-2\\beta_s$ in the SM. A deviation in $\\Phi$ from $-2\\beta_s$ is an indicator of new physics entering into $B_{s}/\\bar{B}_{s}$ mixing. LHCb will yield a competitive measurement of the phase $\\Phi$ in less than one year of data taking.

  9. Puzzles of J/{Psi} production off nuclei

    Nuclear effects for J/{Psi} production in pA collisions are controlled by the coherence and color transparency effects. Color transparency onsets when the time of formation of the charmonium wave function becomes longer than the inter-nucleon spacing. In this energy regime the effective break-up cross section for a c-barc dipole depends on energy and nuclear path length, and agrees well with data from fixed target experiments, both in magnitude and energy dependence. At higher energies of RHIC and LHC coherence in c-barc pair production leads to charm quark shadowing which is a complement to the high twist break up cross section. These two effects explain well with no adjusted parameters the magnitude and rapidity dependence of nuclear suppression of J/{Psi} observed at RHIC in dAu collisions, while the contribution of leading twist gluon shadowing is found to be vanishingly small. A novel mechanism of double color filtering for c-barc dipoles makes nuclei significantly more transparent in AA compared to pA collisions. This is one of the mechanisms which make impossible a model independent 'data driven' extrapolation from pA to AA. This effect also explains the enhancement of nuclear suppression observed at forward rapidities in AA collisions at RHIC, what hardly can be related to the produced dense medium. J/{Psi} is found to be a clean and sensitive tool measuring the transport coefficient characterizing the dense matter created in AA collisions. RHIC data for p{sub T} dependence of J/{Psi} production in nuclear collisions are well explained with the low value of the transport coefficient q-hat{sub 0}<0.5 GeV{sup 2}/fm.

    We report on the possibilities of measuring charmonia and beauty productions with the LHCb experiment. Using reconstructed $J/psi$ decays to $/mu^+mu^-$, both the prompt $J/psi$ and the $b-)J/psi$ production cross sections in p-p collisions at LHC energies will be determined in the $J/psi$ eta range 2-5. Due to the very large statistics, this analysis will be possible very early after the LHC start. Other charmonia related measurements will also be discussed, such as that of the $J/psi$ polarization at production or of the production of some of the new X, Y and Z states.

    The overarching goal of energy research at PSI is to provide scientific nd technical solutions for the development of cost-effective, reliable, socially acceptable and environmentally sustainable energy. his research is done within two departments: General Energy and nuclear Energy and Safety, their research highlights from 2005 are documented in the following chapter. Major accomplishments of the past year include: a pioneer solar power-plant; improvements in catalysts and processes for the production of methane from wood; development of characterization tools to improve combustion processes; fuel cells, and batteries under operating conditions; carbon dioxide in forests; and a new dating method for glacial ice. Progress was made in determining the suitability of opalinus clay to store radioactive waste and how iodine exposure could be reduced under normal operation and in the event of a severe accident at a nuclear power-plant. Systems analysis research also included a report on the external environmental costs of electricity and whether the Swiss population are willing to pay for renewable energy. This report only highlights a selection of the work done at PSI in the past year; information about many other ongoing projects can be accessed through our website, (www.psi.ch). (author)

    The decay psi(2S)-->K(0)(S)K(0)(L) is observed using psi(2S) data collected with the Beijing Spectrometer at the Beijing Electron-Positron Collider; the branching fraction is determined to be B(psi(2S)-->K(0)(S)K(0)(L))=(5.24+/-0.47+/-0.48)x10(-5). Compared with J/psi-->K(0)(S)K(0)(L), the psi(2S) branching fraction is enhanced relative to the prediction of the perturbative QCD "12%" rule. The result, together with the branching fractions of psi(2S) decays to other pseudoscalar meson pairs (pi(+)pi(-) and K+K-), is used to investigate the relative phase between the three-gluon and the one-photon annihilation amplitudes of psi(2S) decays.

    The decay psi(2S)-->K_S K_L is observed for the first time using psi(2S) data collected with the Beijing Spectrometer (BESII) at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC); the branching ratio is determined to be B(psi(2S)-->K_S K_L) = (5.24\\pm 0.47 \\pm 0.48)\\times 10^{-5}. Compared with J/psi-->K_S K_L, the psi(2S) branching ratio is enhanced relative to the prediction of the perturbative QCD ``12%'' rule. The result, together with the branching ratios of psi(2S) decays to other pseudoscalar meson pairs (\\pi^+\\pi^- and K^+K^-), is used to investigate the relative phase between the three-gluon and the one-photon annihilation amplitudes of psi(2S) decays.

    Sixteen radon measurement services participated in the 2008 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) during August 28{sup th} to September 7{sup th}, 2008 on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Twelve of these laboratories were approved by the FOPH and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurement. Radon gas dosemeters (etched-track, electronic and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionization chambers) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 627 Bq m{sup -3} leading to a radon gas exposure of 155 kBq h m{sup -3}. One measuring instrument participating for testing purposes stored values for part of the exposure interval (30.8. - 7.9.2008). The exposure during this partial interval was 117 kBq h m{sup -3} at an average radon gas concentration of 624 Bq m{sup -3}. The exposure of 155 kBq h m{sup -3} was the lowest used at the PSI intercomparisons down to the present day. Especially the LLT electret ionisation chambers used by some of the laboratories reached the lower end of their measurement range with this exposure. Unexpected deviations of instruments of the same model seem to show a dependence on the serial number and thus production date. (authors)

    The double-differential cross sections of promptly produced $\\mathrm{J}/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$ mesons are measured in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV, as a function of transverse momentum $p_\\mathrm{T}$ and absolute rapidity $|y|$. The analysis uses $\\mathrm{J}/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$ dimuon samples collected by CMS, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 4.55 and 4.90 fb$^{-1}$, respectively. The results are based on a two-dimensional analysis of the dimuon invariant mass and decay length, and extend to $p_\\mathrm{T}$ = 120 and 100 GeV for the $\\mathrm{J}/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$, respectively, when integrated over the interval $|y|$ lower than 1.2. The ratio of the $\\psi(2S)$ to $\\mathrm{J}/\\psi$ cross sections is also reported for $|y|$ lower than 1.2, over the range of $p_\\mathrm{T}$ between 10 and 100 GeV. These are the highest-$p_\\mathrm{T}$ values for which the cross sections and ratio have been measured.

    The results of searches for $B^0_{(s)} \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}$ and $B^+ \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}\\pi^+$ decays are reported. The analysis is based on a data sample, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions, collected with the LHCb detector. An excess with 2.8 $\\sigma$ significance is seen for the decay $B^0_{s} \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}$ and an upper limit on the branching fraction is set at the 90% confidence level: $B(B^0_s \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}) \\lt$ 4.8 x 10$^{-6}$, which is the first such limit. No significant signals are seen for $B^0 \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}$ and $B^+ \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}\\pi^+$ decays, for which the corresponding limits are set: $B(B^0 \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}) \\lt$ 5.2 x 10$^{-7}$, which significantly improves the existing limit; and $B(B^+ \\to J/\\psi p\\bar{p}\\pi^+) \\lt$ 5.0 x 10$^{-7}$, which is the first limit on this branching fraction.

    The effects of chilling-light stress combined with additional stress on PSI and PSII photoinhibition and their interrelationship have not been known. To explore whether NaCl affects the PSI and PSII photoinhibition and their interrelationship under chilling-light treatment, the PSI and PSII activities were studied under chilling-light with or without NaCl treatment. The results showed that the extent of PSI and PSII photoinhibition both increased under chilling-light, while NaCl aggravated PSII photoinhibition and severely damaged cytochrome b₆/f complex but alleviated PSI photoinhibition. Moreover, DCMU had a similar effect as NaCl in this study, which indicates that NaCl alleviated PSI photoinhibition through reducing electrons transported to PSI. It was also showed that the increased damage to PSII by NaCl did not depend on the inhibition of PSII repair and PSI electron transportation. In conclusion, NaCl alleviated PSI photoinhibition by inhibiting electron transport from PSII under chilling-light conditions. In addition, PSII photoinhibition was not affected by PSI photoinhibition because of a full inhibition of PSII repair by chilling-light treatment. We also speculate that NaCl aggravates PSII photoinhibition by enhancing the damage instead of inhibiting the repair of it under chilling-light conditions. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    The NA60 experiment has studied J/psi production in p-A collisions at 158 and 400 GeV, at the CERN SPS. Nuclear effects on the J/psi yield have been estimated from the A-dependence of the production cross section ratios sigma_{J/psi}^{A}/sigma_{J/psi}^{Be} (A=Al, Cu, In, W, Pb, U). We observe a significant nuclear suppression of the J/psi yield per N-N collision, with a larger effect at lower incident energy, and we compare this result with previous observations by fixed-target experiments. By studying, at the two energies, the dependence of nuclear effects on x_2, the fraction of nucleon momentum carried by the interacting parton from the target nucleus, we conclude that a combination of nuclear shadowing and break-up by target nucleons cannot be the only source of nuclear suppression of the J/psi.

    The decays $B^+\\rightarrow J/\\psi 3\\pi^+ 2\\pi^-$ and $B^+\\rightarrow \\psi(2S) \\pi^+\\pi^+\\pi^-$ are observed for the first time using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0fb^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at the centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fractions relative to that of $B^+ \\rightarrow \\psi(2S)K^+$ are measured to be \\begin{eqnarray*} \\frac {\\mathcal{B}\\left( B^+\\rightarrow J/\\psi 3\\pi^+ 2\\pi^- \\right)} {\\mathcal{B}\\left( B^+ \\rightarrow \\psi(2S)K^+ \\right)} & = & \\left( 1.88\\pm0.17\\pm0.09\\right)\\times10^{-2}, \\\\ \\frac {\\mathcal{B}\\left( B^+\\rightarrow \\psi(2S) \\pi^+\\pi^+\\pi^- \\right)} {\\mathcal{B}\\left( B^+ \\rightarrow \\psi(2S)K^+ \\right) } & = & \\left( 3.04\\pm0.50\\pm0.26\\right)\\times10^{-2}, \\end{eqnarray*} where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic.

    The decays $B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi D_s^+$ and $B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi D_s^{*+}$ are observed for the first time using a dataset, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3$fb^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of $\\sqrt{s}$=7 and 8 TeV. The statistical significance for both signals is in excess of 9 standard deviations. The following ratios of branching fractions are measured to be \\begin{equation*}BR( B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi D_s^+)/BR( B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi+ ) = 2.90 \\pm 0.57 \\pm 0.24$,\\end{equation*} \\begin{equation*}BR( B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi D_s^{*+} ) / BR ( B^+_c \\rightarrow J/\\psi D_s^+ ) = 2.37 \\pm 0.56 \\pm 0.10, \\end{equation*} where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic.

    Differential cross-sections are presented for the prompt and non-prompt production of the hidden-charm states $X(3872)$ and $\\psi(2S)$, in the decay mode $J/\\psi\\pi^+\\pi^-$, measured using 11.4 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV taken by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The ratios of these cross-sections are also shown, separately for prompt and non-prompt components, as well as the non-prompt fractions of $X(3872)$ and $\\psi(2S)$. The non-prompt production of $X(3872)$ was separated into short-lived and long-lived contributions, from which the ratio of the branching fractions $R_B = \\frac{Br(B \\rightarrow X(3872)) Br(X(3872) \\rightarrow J/\\psi\\pi^+\\pi^-)}{Br(B \\rightarrow \\psi(2S)) Br(\\psi(2S) \\rightarrow J/\\psi\\pi^+\\pi^-)}$ was found to be $(3.57 \\pm 0.33 \\mathrm{(stat)} \\pm 0.11\\mathrm{(sys)})\\%$. Under the assumption that the short-lived component is due to $B_c$ decays, the fraction of non-prompt $X(3872)$ production proceeding via $B_c$ decays for $p_{T}(X(3872)) > 10$ GeV is found to be $...

    The exclusive deep inelastic electroproduction of $\\psi(2S)$ and $J/\\psi(1S)$ at an $ep$ centre-of-mass energy of 317 GeV has been studied with the ZEUS detector at HERA in the kinematic range $2 < Q^2 < 80$ GeV$^2$, $30 < W < 210$ GeV and $|t| < 1$ GeV$^2$, where $Q^2$ is the photon virtuality, $W$ is the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy and $t$ is the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex. The data for $2 < Q^2 < 5$ GeV$^2$ were taken in the HERA I running period and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 114 pb$^{-1}$. The data for $5 < Q^2 < 80$ GeV$^2$ are from both HERA I and HERA II periods and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 468 pb$^{-1}$. The decay modes analysed were $\\mu^+\\mu^-$ and $J/\\psi(1S) \\pi^+\\pi^-$ for the $\\psi(2S)$ and $\\mu^+\\mu^-$ for the $J/\\psi(1S)$. The cross-section ratio $\\sigma_{\\psi(2S)}/\\sigma_{J/\\psi(1S)}$ has been measured as a function of $Q^2, W$ and $t$. The results are compared to predictions of QCD-inspired models of...

    The production and absorption of J/ psi at SPS energies in p-A and A- A collisions have been simulated by using the General Cascade Program (GCP). The nucleon absorption mechanism and comover absorption mechanism are considered in investigating J/ psi suppression. The results agree well with the experimental data of J/ psi production, except for the data in Pb-Pb collisions. (16 refs).

    Phytoene synthase (PSY) has been shown to catalyze the first committed and rate-limiting step of carotenogenesis in several crop species, including Brassica napus L. Due to its pivotal role, PSY has been a prime target for breeding and metabolic engineering the carotenoid content of seeds, tubers, fruits and flowers. In Arabidopsis thaliana, PSY is encoded by a single copy gene but small PSY gene families have been described in monocot and dicotyledonous species. We have recently shown that PSY genes have been retained in a triplicated state in the A- and C-Brassica genomes, with each paralogue mapping to syntenic locations in each of the three "Arabidopsis-like" subgenomes. Most importantly, we have shown that in B. napus all six members are expressed, exhibiting overlapping redundancy and signs of subfunctionalization among photosynthetic and non photosynthetic tissues. The question of whether this large PSY family actually encodes six functional enzymes remained to be answered. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to: (i) isolate, characterize and compare the complete protein coding sequences (CDS) of the six B. napus PSY genes; (ii) model their predicted tridimensional enzyme structures; (iii) test their phytoene synthase activity in a heterologous complementation system and (iv) evaluate their individual expression patterns during seed development. This study further confirmed that the six B. napus PSY genes encode proteins with high sequence identity, which have evolved under functional constraint. Structural modeling demonstrated that they share similar tridimensional protein structures with a putative PSY active site. Significantly, all six B. napus PSY enzymes were found to be functional. Taking into account the specific patterns of expression exhibited by these PSY genes during seed development and recent knowledge of PSY suborganellar localization, the selection of transgene candidates for metabolic engineering the carotenoid content of oilseeds

    The exclusive charmonium production process anti pp {yields} {pi}{sup 0} + J/{Psi} is investigated for the planned anti pp experiment with the PANDA detector at GSI/FAIR. The measured exclusive cross section of this reaction was reported first by the E760 and E835 collaborations at Fermilab, in the energy range (3525 MeV) of charmonium state h{sub c} production. The recent measurements of the charmonium decay widths reported by the CLEO and BES collaborations allow one to make constraints on model assumptions. (orig.)

    Yeast [PSI(+)] prion is one of the most suitable and well characterized system for the investigation of the prion phenomenon. However, until recently, the lack of data on the 3D arrangement of Sup35p prion fibrils hindered progress in this area. The recent arrival in this field of new experimental techniques led to the parallel and in-register superpleated β-structure as a consensus model for Sup35p fibrils. Here, we analyzed the effect of amino acid substitutions of the Sup35 protein through the prism of this structural model. Application of a newly developed computational approach, called ArchCandy, gives us a better understanding of the effect caused by mutations on the fibril forming potential of Sup35 protein. This bioinformatics tool can be used for the design of new mutations with desired modification of prion properties. Thus, we provide examples of how today, having progress toward elucidation of the structural arrangement of Sup35p fibrils, researchers can advance more efficiently to a better understanding of prion [PSI(+)] stability and propagation.

    An analysis of inelastic photoproduction of J/Psi mesons is presented using data collected at the ep collider HERA corresponding to an integrated luminosity of above 80pb-1. Differential and double differential cross sections are measured in a wide kinematic region: 60Psi meson in the rest frame of the target proton. Cross sections at z<0.3 are presented for the first time. Theoretical calculations within the Colour Singlet Model at NLO for direct photon processes are shown to give a good description of the data in the medium z region (0.3

    Twelve radon measurement services participated in the 2003 Radon Intercomparison Exercise performed at the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) during March 13th to 24th, 2003. Ten of these laboratories were approved by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and their participation in the intercomparison exercise was a requirement to warrant quality of measurement. Radon gas detectors (etched-track and electret ionisation chambers) and instruments (ionisation chambers and electrostatic precipitation) were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in a reference atmosphere with an average radon gas concentration of 1950 Bqm sup - sup 3 leading to a radon gas exposure of 517 kBqhm sup - sup 3. Additional five electret-detectors of an approved measuring service were purchased by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health for a spot check. Two of these were exposed as described above, two had an exposure of 247 kBqhm sup - sup 3 at an average radon concen...

    The large hadron collider (LHC) at Conseil European Pour Recherches Nucleaires (CERN) in Geneva is the largest particle physics accelerator. Protonproton collisions up to a center-of-mass energy of 14 TeV to be produced at the LHC will offer great opportunity to address most fundamental questions in physics. The LHCb experiment is one of the four main experiments at the LHC. Dedicated to b physics studies, the primary goal of the LHCb experiment is to explore possible New Physics beyond the Standard Model through the studies of rare decays of charm and beauty-flavoured hadrons and precision measurements of CP-violating observables. Even at its first running phase, the enormous number of $J/\\psi$ particles to be collected by the LHCb detector will allow us to realize some very interesting physics studies on charmonium productions. The measurement may shed new light on the long standing puzzle in understanding the mechanism of quarkonia production in hadron-hadron collisions. In this thesis, studies of $J/\\psi$...

    2001-01-01

    We briefly present the motivation for studying the processes mediated by the QCD pomeron at high energy e+e- colliders. We describe the behaviour of the cross-section for the reaction gamma gamma to J/psi J/psi obtained from the BFKL equation with dominant non-leading corrections. We give the predictions for the rates of anti-tagged e+e- to e+e- J/psi J/psi events in TESLA and conclude that such reactions may be excellent probes of the hard pomeron.

  17. The Personality Psychopathology-Five (PSY-5): recent constructive replication and assessment literature review.

    2012-06-01

    The Personality Psychopathology-Five (PSY-5; Harkness & McNulty, 1994) is a model of individual differences relevant to adaptive functioning in both clinical and non-clinical populations. In this article, we review the development of the PSY-5 model (Harkness, 1992; Harkness & McNulty, 1994) and discuss the ways in which the PSY-5 model is related to and distinct from other 5-factor models. Using different methods and measures, the dimensions of the PSY-5 model have been constructively replicated (Lykken, 1968) by Tackett, Silberschmidt, Krueger, and Sponheim (2008) and by Watson, Clark, and Chmielewski (2008), and dimensions congruent with the PSY-5 have even been suggested for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; Krueger et al., 2011). PSY-5 Scales can be scored from the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2; Butcher et al., 2001), the MMPI-Adolescent version (MMPI-A; Butcher et al., 1992), and the Restructured Form of the MMPI-2 (MMPI-2-RF; Ben-Porath & Tellegen, 2008). Because the largest body of research exists for the MMPI-2-based scales, we focus our review of the literature on the MMPI-2-based PSY-5 scales (Harkness, McNulty, & Ben-Porath, 1995), but we briefly cover the small, but growing, body of MMPI-A and MMPI-2-RF PSY-5 scales research. We show that the PSY-5 research literature includes a wide variety of psychometric methodologies as well as diverse samples and clinical problems. An integrative summary reprises the theory behind each PSY-5 construct and links it to the reviewed literature. Advantages and limitations of MMPI-2-based PSY-5 scales are discussed.

    Using $pp$ collision data collected by LHCb at center-of-mass energies $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$, the ratio of the branching fraction of the $B_c^+ \\rightarrow \\psi(2S)\\pi^+$ decay relative to that of the $B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi\\pi^+$ decay is measured to be 0.268 $\\pm$ 0.032 (stat) $\\pm$ 0.007 (syst) $\\pm$ 0.006 (BF). The first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the uncertainties on the branching fractions of the $J/\\psi \\rightarrow \\mu^+\\mu^-$ and $\\psi(2S) \\rightarrow \\mu^+\\mu^-$ decays. This measurement is consistent with the previous LHCb result, and the statistical uncertainty is halved.

  19. Observation of a peaking structure in the J/$\\psi\\phi$ mass spectrum from $B^\\pm \\to J/\\psi \\phi K^\\pm$ decays

    A peaking structure in the J/$\\psi \\phi$ mass spectrum near threshold is observed in $B^\\pm \\to J/\\psi \\phi K^\\pm$ decays, produced in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. The data sample, selected on the basis of the dimuon decay mode of the J/psi, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.2 inverse femtobarns. Fitting the structure to an S-wave relativistic Breit-Wigner lineshape above a three-body phase-space nonresonant component gives a signal statistical significance exceeding five standard deviations. The fitted mass and width values are m=4148.0 +/- 2.4 (stat.) +/- 6.3 (syst.) MeV and $\\Gamma = 28_{-11}^{+15}$ (stat.) +/- 19 (syst.) MeV, respectively. Evidence for an additional peaking structure at higher J/$\\psi \\phi$ mass is also reported.

    A small and compact radiocarbon dating system has been built at PSI/ETH. The system is based on a National Electrostatics Corporation (NEC) pelletron accelerator with a maximum terminal voltage of 550 kV. It is the first accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) system that uses 1 + ions at the high-energy end of the accelerator. Interfering isobaric molecules are destroyed by collisions in the gas stripper inside the accelerator. The system has been designed to fulfill two primary goals. First, it can be used as an experimental platform to study the relevant charge exchange and molecular break up processes at low energies. Second, it is able to perform high quality radiocarbon dating measurements. A detailed system description is given and results of performance tests are discussed.

  3. "Spooky actions at a distance": physics, psi, and distant healing.

    Over decades, consciousness research has accumulated evidence of the real and measureable existence of "spooky actions at a distance"--modes of telepathy, telekinesis, clairvoyance, and the like. More recently scientists have begun rigorous study of the effects of distant healing intention and prayer vis-a-vis nonhuman living systems and patients in clinical trials. A barrier to taking such work seriously may be the belief that it is fundamentally incompatible with the scientific world view. This article suggests that it need not be; contemporary physics has generated a series of paradigms that can be used to make sense of, interpret, and explore "psi" and distant healing. Four such models are discussed, two drawn from relativity theory and two from quantum mechanics. First is the energetic transmission model, presuming the effects of conscious intention to be mediated by an as-yet unknown energy signal. Second is the model of path facilitation. As gravity, according to general relativity, "warps" space-time, easing certain pathways of movement, so may acts of consciousness have warping and facilitating effects on the fabric of the surrounding world. Third is the model of nonlocal entanglement drawn from quantum mechanics. Perhaps people, like particles, can become entangled so they behave as one system with instantaneous and unmediated correlations across a distance. Last discussed is a model involving actualization of potentials. The act of measurement in quantum mechanics collapses a probabilistic wave function into a single outcome. Perhaps conscious healing intention can act similarly, helping to actualize one of a series of possibilities; for example, recovery from a potentially lethal tumor. Such physics-based models are not presented as explanatory but rather as suggestive. Disjunctions as well as compatibilities between the phenomena of modern physics and those of psi and distant healing are explored.

    The polarizations of prompt J/$\\psi$ and $\\psi$(2S) mesons are measured in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV, using a dimuon data sample collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.9 inverse femtobarns. The prompt J/$\\psi$ and $\\psi$(2S) polarization parameters $\\lambda_{\\theta}, \\lambda_{\\phi}$, and $\\lambda_{\\theta,\\phi}$, as well as the frame-invariant quantity $\\tilde\\lambda$, are measured from the dimuon decay angular distributions in three different polarization frames. The J/$\\psi$ results are obtained in the transverse momentum range 14 $\\lt p_T \\lt$ 70 GeV, in the rapidity intervals abs(y) $\\lt 0.6$ and $0.6 \\lt abs(y) \\lt 1.2$. The corresponding $\\psi$(2S) results cover 14 $\\lt p_T \\lt$ 50 GeV and include a third rapidity bin, 1.2 $\\lt abs(y) \\lt$ 1.5. No evidence of large transverse or longitudinal polarizations is seen in these kinematic regions, which extend much beyond those previously explored.

    The Protein Structure Initiative:Biology-Materials Repository (PSI:Biology-MR; MR; http://psimr.asu.edu ) sequence-verifies, annotates, stores, and distributes the protein expression plasmids and vectors created by the Protein Structure Initiative (PSI). The MR has developed an informatics and sample processing pipeline that manages this process for thousands of samples per month from nearly a dozen PSI centers. DNASU ( http://dnasu.asu.edu ), a freely searchable database, stores the plasmid annotations, which include the full-length sequence, vector information, and associated publications for over 130,000 plasmids created by our laboratory, by the PSI and other consortia, and by individual laboratories for distribution to researchers worldwide. Each plasmid links to external resources, including the PSI Structural Biology Knowledgebase ( http://sbkb.org ), which facilitates cross-referencing of a particular plasmid to additional protein annotations and experimental data. To expedite and simplify plasmid requests, the MR uses an expedited material transfer agreement (EP-MTA) network, where researchers from network institutions can order and receive PSI plasmids without institutional delays. As of March 2011, over 39,000 protein expression plasmids and 78 empty vectors from the PSI are available upon request from DNASU. Overall, the MR's repository of expression-ready plasmids, its automated pipeline, and the rapid process for receiving and distributing these plasmids more effectively allows the research community to dissect the biological function of proteins whose structures have been studied by the PSI.

    In this paper we discuss the possibility of $J/\\psi$ disintegration due the $Z(3)$ domain walls that are expected to form in QGP medium. These domain walls give rise to localised color electric field which disintegrates $J/\\psi$, on interaction, by changing the color composition and simultaneously exciting it to higher states of $c\\bar{c}$ system.

    Based on a sample of (225.3\\pm2.8)\\times 10^{6} J/\\psi events collected with the BESIII detector, the electromagnetic Dalitz decays of J/\\psi \\to P e^+e^-(P=\\eta'/\\eta/\\pi^0) are studied. By reconstructing the pseudoscalar mesons in various decay modes, the decays J/\\psi \\to \\eta' e^+e^-, J/\\psi \\to \\eta e^+e^- and J/\\psi \\to \\pi^0 e^+e^- are observed for the first time. The branching fractions are determined to be \\mathcal{B}(J/\\psi\\to \\eta' e^+e^-) = (5.81\\pm0.16\\pm0.31)\\times10^{-5}, \\mathcal{B}(J/\\psi\\to \\eta e^+e^-) = (1.16\\pm0.07\\pm0.06)\\times10^{-5}, and \\mathcal{B}(J/\\psi\\to \\pi^0 e^+e^-)=(7.56\\pm1.32\\pm0.50)\\times10^{-7}, where the first errors are statistical and the second ones systematic.

  15. Intercomparison of radon gas detectors 1999 and 2000 at PSI; Die Vergleichsmessungen 1999 und 2000 fuer Radongasmessgeraete am PSI

    This report describes the results of two radon intercomparison exercises performed by the Reference Laboratory for Radon Gas Activity Concentration Measurements at Paul Scherrer Institut from Sep 9th to Oct 6th, 1999, and from March 21st to 28th, 2000. Radon gas detectors and instruments were exposed in the PSI Radon Chamber in reference atmospheres to 1060 kBqhm{sup -3} radon gas exposure at an average radon gas concentration of 6400 Bqm{sup -3} and to 2050 kBqhm{sup -3} radon gas exposure at an average radon gas concentration of 12500 Bqm{sup -3}, respectively. These intercomparison exercises determined the performance of electret ionisation chambers, track etch detectors and measuring instruments at high humidity (1999 Intercomparison Exercise) and at a high radon gas exposure (2000 Intercomparison Exercise). In the 1999 Intercomparison Exercise, electret ionisation chambers revealed an influence on high humidity. This effect may be due to impurities on a microscopic scale on the electrets of these detectors. With few exceptions, in both the 1999 and the 2000 Radon Intercomparison Exercise the deviations of the measurement results to the reference radon gas concentration values were less than 15% (traceability criterion) and the standard deviation of the results of five detectors less than 15% (reproducibility criterion).

    Production of prompt J/$\\psi$ meson pairs in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV is measured with the CMS experiment at the LHC in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 4.7 inverse-femtobarns. The two J/$\\psi$ mesons are fully reconstructed via their decays into $\\mu^+\\mu^-$ pairs. This observation provides for the first time access to the high-transverse-momentum region of J/$\\psi$ pair production where model predictions are not yet established. The total and differential cross sections are measured in a phase space defined by the individual J/$\\psi$ transverse momentum ($p_T^{J/\\psi}$) and rapidity (|$y^{J/\\psi}$|): |$y^{J/\\psi}$| lower than 1.2 for $p_T^{J/\\psi}$ greater than 6.5 GeV/c; |$y^{J/\\psi}$| in [1.2,1.43] for a $p_T$ threshold that scales linearly with |$y^{J/\\psi}$| from 6.5 to 4.5 GeV/c; and |$y^{J/\\psi}$| in [1.43,2.2] for $p_T^{J/\\psi}$ greater than 4.5 GeV/c. The total cross section, assuming unpolarized prompt J/$\\psi$ pair production is 1.49 $\\pm$ 0.07...

    We propose an alternative way of looking at data on anomalous J/psi suppression. The proposed method is in principle equivalent to the one used by the NA50 Collaboration, but it permits to visualize separate contributions of individual processes responsible for the disintegration of J/psi's produced by a hard process in nuclear collisions. The method can be used provided that the time sequence of contributing mechanisms is known or assumed. It offers an alternative graphical presentation of the onset of anomalous J/psi suppression in Pb-Pb interactions observed by the NA50 Collaboration at the CERN SPS and might contribute to explain why different mechanisms, such as J/psi suppression by the Quark-Gluon Plasma and by co-movers in the Dual Parton Model or in Monte Carlo microscopic approaches, all lead to an approximate description of anomalous J/psi suppression.

    The decay J/{psi}{yields}{omega}p anti p is studied using a 5.8 x 10{sup 7} J/{psi} event sample accumulated with the BES II detector at the Beijing Electron-Positron Collider. The decay branching fraction is measured to be B(J/{psi}{yields}{omega}p anti p)=(9.8{+-}0.3{+-}1.4) x 10{sup -4}. No significant enhancement near the pp mass threshold is observed, and an upper limit of B(J/{psi}{yields}{omega}X(1860))B(X(1860){yields}pp)<1.5 x 10{sup -5} is determined at the 95% confidence level, where X(1860) designates the near-threshold enhancement seen in the p anti p mass spectrum in J/{psi}{yields}{gamma}p anti p decays.

    Evidence is presented for the decay $B_c+\\rightarrow J/\\psi 3\\pi^+2\\pi^-$ using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3fb$^{-1}$, collected with the LHCb detector. A signal yield of $32\\pm8$ decays is found with a significance of 4.5 standard deviations. The ratio of the branching fraction of the $B_c^+\\rightarrow J/\\psi 3\\pi^+ 2\\pi^-$ decay to that of the $B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi^+$ decay is measured to be $$ \\frac{Br (B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi 3\\pi^+2\\pi^)}{Br (B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi^+)} = 1.74\\pm0.44\\pm0.24, $$ where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.

  20. Color-Octet J/psi Production at Low P(T)

    We study contributions from color-octet quarkonium formation mechanisms to J/{psi} hadroproduction at low p{sub {perpendicular}}. We include transitions of color-octet c{bar c} states into ''direct'' J/{psi} and into {chi}{sub 1,2} which decay radiatively into a J/{psi}. Together with earlier work, this calculation constitutes a complete analysis of p{sub {perpendicular}}-integrated J/{psi} production at leading twist. We find that the leading-twist contribution is not sufficient to reproduce the observed production rates and polarization of the J/{psi} and {chi}{sub 1,2}. Hence there must exist other important quarkonium production mechanisms at low p{sub {perpendicular}}.

    is activated. This work provides the first study of the direct interaction between PSY1R and the peptide ligand PSY1. The binding was evaluated both for full length PSY1R expressed in plants and for the isolated extracellular domain expressed in insect cells. PSY1 binds to the extracellular domain of PSY1R...... shown to phosphorylate and regulate the activity of the plasma membrane localized H+-ATPase, AHA2. While the mechanism of PSY1R-mediated AHA2 phosphorylation has previously been studied in detail, little is known about how PSY1R binds PSY1 peptide ligand and how the intracellular PSY1R kinase domain...... with a Kd of approximately 17 nM which is physiologically relevant. The activation mechanism of PSY1R was also studied. Full length PSY1R forms homodimers and interacts with members of the SERK co-receptor family in planta. An intact PSY1R C-terminal domain was shown to be required for these interactions...

    The differential cross-section for the inclusive production of $\\psi(2S)$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$=7~Tev has been measured with the LHCb detector. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of $36$~pb$^{-1}$. The $\\psi(2S)$ mesons are reconstructed in the decay channels $\\psi(2S) \\rightarrow \\mu^+ \\mu^-$ and $\\psi(2S) \\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi^+ \\pi^-$, with the $J/\\psi$ meson decaying into two muons. Results are presented both for promptly produced $\\psi(2S)$ mesons and for those originating from $b$-hadron decays. In the kinematic range $p_{\\rm T}(\\psi(2S)) \\le 16$~GeV/$c$ and $2 < y(\\psi(2S)) \\le 4.5$ we measure \\begin{eqnarray*} \\sigma_{\\rm prompt}(\\psi(2S)) &=& 1.44 \\pm 0.01~(\\text{stat})\\pm 0.12~(\\text{syst})^{+0.20}_{-0.40}~(\\text{pol})~{\\rm \\mu b}, \\\\ \\sigma_{b}(\\psi(2S)) &=& 0.25 \\pm 0.01~(\\text{stat}) \\pm 0.02~(\\text{syst})~{\\rm \\mu b}, \\end{eqnarray*} where the last uncertainty on the prompt cross-section is due to the unknown $\\psi(2S)$ polarization. ...

  4. [Identification of new genes that affect [PSI^(+)] prion toxicity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast].

    Translation termination is an important step in gene expression. Its correct processing is governed by eRF1 (Sup45) and eRF3 (Sup35) proteins. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, mutations in the corresponding genes, as well as Sup35 aggregation in [PSI^(+)] cells that propagate the prion form of Sup35 lead to inaccurate stop codon recognition and, consequently, nonsense suppression. The presence of stronger prion variants results in the more efficient suppression of nonsense mutations. Previously, we proposed a synthetic lethality test that enables the identification of genes that may influence either translation termination factors or [PSI^(+)] manifestation. This is based on the fact that the combination of sup45 mutations with the strong [PSI^(+)] prion variant in diploids is lethal. In this work, a set of genes that were previously shown to enhance nonsense suppression was analyzed. It was found that ABF1, FKH2, and REB1 overexpression decreased the growth of strains in a prion-dependent manner and, thus, might influence [PSI^(+)] prion toxicity. It was also shown that the synthetic lethality of [PSI^(+)] and sup45 mutations increased with the overexpression of GLN3 and MOT3 that encode Q/N-rich transcription factors. An analysis of the effects of their expression on the transcription of the release factors genes revealed an increase in SUP35 transcription in both cases. Since SUP35 overexpression is known to be toxic in [PSI^(+)] strains, these genes apparently enhance [PSI^(+)] toxicity via the regulation of SUP35 transcription.

  5. Study of the J/{psi} and {psi}` production in sulfur-uranium collisions at 200 GeV/nucleon; Etude de la production du J/{psi} et du {psi}` dans les collisions soufre-uranium a 200 GeV/nucleon

    The first axis of research of the NA38 experiment, realized at CERN, is to bring to the fore the quark gluon plasma (QGP). In this aim, the study of the J/{psi} production relatively to dimuon continuum and in correlation with energy density started in 1986. The relative decrease of the J/{psi} production observed was however in agreement with some models without plasma. On the other hand study of the relative production on the {psi}` and J/{psi} must allow to distinguish between nuclear absorption model and QGP. This thesis describes this study made with high statistics data taken in 1992. In this document, the apparatus is describe and especially the electromagnetic calorimeter and its pile-up rejection system which has allowed to save about 40 extra events. On top of this , because of the low {psi}` production cross-section as well as the small mass splitting between the two resonances J/{psi} and {psi}`, thorough study of all the phenomena affecting the mass resolution of the spectrometer was performed. The results show that the ratio {psi}`/{psi} is multiplied by a factor 0.61 when the density obtained during the collisions goes from 1.34 GeV/fm{sup 3} to 2.33 GeV/fm{sup 3} (density at which the plasma is supposed to occur). This ratio is also expressed as a function of the width of the nuclear matter traversed and compared to the results of other experiments. Nevertheless, due to the large error bars, it can`t be claimed that QGP was observed in laboratory. (author). 47 refs., 90 figs., 14 tabs.

  6. Pioneering Ekofisk system to inject gas at 9200 psi

    A schematic shows various steps to Ekofisk gas injection. Phillips Petroleum Co. will have in operation late this year or early in 1975 a pioneering type high pressure gas injection system at its North Sea Ekofisk field complex designed to inject up to 500 MMcfd at 9,200 psi. The system will enable Phillips to conserve gas and maintain reservoir pressure in production of Ekofisk crude. Constructed by the packaged compressor division of Dresser Industries, the complete high pressure system, including compressor trains, heat exchangers, injection manifold and headers, and control equipment was built on barges at Dresser's Houston, Texas, facility. The complete system has been installed at 4 Ekofisk platforms, FTP and C after it was towed from Texas to the North Sea. Physical layout of the high pressure system is in 3 sections: a center section contains heat exchangers and control apparatus, and on either side identical compressor trains. All compression equipment, 6 units totalling 110,000 hp, are driven by gas turbines. Discharge pressure of the 2 reinjection compressors, 9,200 psig, represents a record high for centrifugal compressors.

    Study of J/{psi} production from the data recorded during 1991 with the L3 detector. The J/{psi} is identified by its decay J/{psi} - {mu}''+{mu}''- in the invariant mass spectrum of two muons. With our analysis results we have calculated the branching ratios Br(Z''0 -J/{psi} + X) = (3.4 +- 0.7 (statistic)+- 0.2 (systematic)) x 10{sup 3} and Br(b-> J/{psi}+ X) = (1.20 +- 0.25 (statistic) +0.15 (systematic))%.

    The J/{psi} decay angular distributions have been measured in inelastic photoproduction in ep collisions with the ZEUS detector at HERA, using an integrated luminosity of 468 pb{sup -1}. The range in photon-proton centre-of-mass energy, W, was 50psi} mesons were identified through their decay into muon pairs. The polar and azimuthal angles of the {mu}{sup +} were measured in the J/{psi} rest frame and compared to theoretical predictions at leading and next-to-leading order in QCD. (orig.)

    A search for the $X(4140)$ state in $B^+\\to J/\\psi\\phi K^+$ decays is performed with 0.37 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV collected by the LHCb experiment. No evidence for this state is found, in $2.4\\,\\sigma$ disagreement with a measurement by CDF. An upper limit on its production rate is set, ${{\\cal B}(B^+\\to X(4140) K^+)\\times{\\cal B}(X(4140)\\to J\\psi \\phi)}/{{\\cal B}(B^+\\to J\\psi \\phi K^+)} < 0.07$ at 90\\%\\ confidence level.

    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.

    The decay $B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi K^+ K^- \\pi^+$ is observed for the first time, using proton-proton collisions collected with the LHCb detector corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$. A signal yield of 78$\\pm$14 decays is reported with a significance of 6.2 standard deviations. The ratio of the branching fraction of $B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi K^+ K^- \\pi^+$ decays to that of $B_c^+ \\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi^+$ decays is measured to be $0.53\\pm 0.10\\pm0.05$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.

    Full Text Available In his brief comments on “Siddhis and Psi Research: An Interdisciplinary Analysis,” Ed Kelly expresses disappointment that the paper does not mirror his worldview, which includes questioning the reality of psi—especially precognition, accepting post-mortem survival and observational evidence for macro-PK including levitation. In this brief response to Kelly, I provide arguments in support of informational psi, particularly precognition, and in favor of a physicalist, signal-based approach to psi, with brief points against the validity of micro-PK (mind-over-matter and post-mortem survival.

    We present the first observation of the decay B->J/psi phi K. Using 9.6 million B meson pairs collected with the CLEO detector, we have observed 10 fully reconstructed B->J/psi phi K candidates, whereas the estimated mean background is 0.5 events. We obtained Br(B->J/psi phi K) = (8.8+3.5/-3.0(stat)+/-1.3(syst))*10^-5. This observation serves as the first conclusive evidence for the $s \\bar{s}$ pair popping in the B meson decays.

    Full Text Available Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI is a remote sensing technique used to measure and monitor land deformation from a stack of interferometric SAR images. The main products that can be derived using the PSI technique are the deformation maps and the time series of deformation. In this paper, an approach to apply the PSI technique to a stack of Sentinel-1 images is described. Moreover, the problems encountered during the processing are detailed and an explanation of how they were dealt with is provided. Finally, Sentinel-1 deformation maps and time series obtained over the metropolitan area of Mexico DF are shown.

    In this Letter the decay $\\overline{B}^0_s \\to J/\\psi K^+ K^-$ is investigated. Although the $J/\\psi \\phi$ channel is well known, final states at higher $K^+K^-$ masses have not previously been studied. In the $K^+K^-$ mass spectrum we observe a significant signal in the $f'_2(1525)$ region as well as a non-resonant component. The ratio of the rate in a $K^+K^-$ mass window of $\\pm 125$ MeV around the $f'_2$ relative to that in the $J/\\psi \\phi$ decay, where $\\phi \\to K^+K^-$, is $R=(19.4 \\pm 1.8 \\pm 1.0)$%. Our sample consists of $0.16$ fb$^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb detector using 7 TeV $pp$ collisions.

    A search for the rare decay of a $B^{0}$ or $B^{0}_{s}$ meson into the final state $J/\\psi\\gamma$ is performed, using data collected by the LHCb experiment in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ and $8$ TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$. The observed number of signal candidates is consistent with a background-only hypothesis. Branching fraction values larger than $1.7\\times 10^{-6}$ for the $B^{0}\\to J/\\psi\\gamma$ decay mode are excluded at 90% confidence level. For the $B^{0}_{s}\\to J/\\psi\\gamma$ decay mode, branching fraction values larger than $7.4\\times 10^{-6}$ are excluded at 90% confidence level; this is the first branching fraction limit for this decay.

    Mesoporous silicon (mesoPSi) layer prepared by a laser-assisted etching process in HF acid has been employed as CO2 gas sensors. The surface morphology of mesoPSi was modified by embedding gold nanoparticles AuNPs by simple and quick dipping process in different gold salts concentrations to form mesoPSi/AuNPs hybrid structures. Morphology of hybrid structures was investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The electrical characteristics of the prepared gas sensor were carried out at room temperature. It was found that the nanoparticles size, shape and the specific surface area of the nanoparticle strongly influence the current-voltage characteristics. Considerable improvement was noticed in sensitivity, response and recovery times of gas sensor with decreasing incorporated AuNPs into the mesoPSi matrix.

    We have measured the Lambda b lifetime using the exclusive decay Lambda b --> J/psi Lambda, based on 1.2 fb(-1) of data collected with the D0 detector during 2002-2006. From 171 reconstructed Lambda b decays, where the J/psi and Lambda are identified via the decays J/psi --> mu+ mu- and Lambda --> ppi, we measured the Lambda b lifetime to be tau(Lambda b)=1.218 (+0.130)/(-0.115) (stat) +/- 0.042(syst) ps. We also measured the B0 lifetime in the decay B0 --> J/psi(mu+ mu-)K(0)/(S)(pi+ pi-) to be tau(B0)=1.501 (+0.078)/(-0.074) (stat) +/- 0.050(syst) ps, yielding a lifetime ratio of tau(Lambda b)/tau(B0)=0.811 (+0.096)/(-0.087) (stat) +/- 0.034(syst).

    A recent measurement of prompt J/psi pair production is presented, using a sample of 11.4 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data collected at 8 TeV in the ATLAS detector. The differential cross-section is measured as a function of kinematic distributions for the lower-pT J/psi meson and for the di-J/psi system. A data-driven approach is used to extract the fraction of prompt J/psi pair events due to double parton scattering and an effective cross-section of double parton scattering is measured to be sigma_eff =6.3±1.6(stat)±1.0(syst)±0.1(BF)±0.1(lumi)mb.

    The NA60 experiment has studied J/$\\psi$ production in Indium-Indium collisions at 158 A$\\cdot$GeV. In this paper we present an updated set of results obtained with the complete set of available statistics and an improved alignment of the vertex tracker. The centrality dependence of the J/$\\psi$ production, obtained with an analysis technique based only on the J/$\\psi$ sample, indicates that a suppression beyond that induced by nuclear absorption is present in In-In collisions, setting in at $\\sim$80 participant nucleons. A first study of the systematic errors related with this measurement is discussed. We also present preliminary results on the J/$\\psi$ azimuthal distributions.

    Using $2.25\\times10^{8}$ $J/\\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage rings, we observe for the first time the process $J/\\psi\\rightarrow p\\bar{p}a_{0}(980)$, $a_{0}(980)\\rightarrow \\pi^{0}\\eta$ with a significance of $6.5\\sigma$ ($3.2\\sigma$ including systematic uncertainties). The product branching fraction of $J/\\psi\\rightarrow p\\bar{p}a_{0}(980)\\rightarrow p\\bar{p}\\pi^{0}\\eta$ is measured to be $(6.8\\pm1.2\\pm1.5)\\times 10^{-5}$, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. This measurement provides information on the $a_{0}$ production near threshold coupling to $p\\bar{p}$ and improves the understanding of the dynamics of $J/\\psi$ decays to four body processes.

    The decay (B) over bar (0)(s) -> psi(2S)K+pi(-) is observed using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1) collected by the LHCb experiment in pp collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fraction relative to the B-0 -> psi(2S)K+pi(-) decay mode is

    We present a measurement of the differential J/psi cross section and the ratio of prompt to non-prompt J/psis in 7 TeV proton-proton collisions. We find that the dependence of the cross section on J/psi pT and rapidity is well predicted by Pythia + NRQCD contributions. However the overall normalization is found to be almost an order of magnitude lower. The ratio measurement agrees well with theoretical expectations.

    Polymethacrylic acid grafted psyllium (Psy- g-PMA) was synthesized by microwave assisted method, which involves a microwave irradiation in synergism with silver sulfate as a free radical initiator to initiate grafting reaction. Psy- g-PMA grades have been synthesized and characterized on structural basis (elemental analysis, FTIR spectroscopy, intrinsic viscosity study) as well as morphological and thermal studies, taking psyllium as reference. The effects of reaction time, amount of monomer and silver sulfate (free radical initiator) on grafting of PMA on psyllium backbone have been studied. It is observed that all the grades of Psy- g-PMA have higher intrinsic viscosities than that of psyllium. The best synthesized grade was Psy- g-PMA having intrinsic viscosity of 6.93 and 58 % grafting of PMA on the main polymer backbone. Further Psy- g-PMA applications as flocculants for waste water treatment have been investigated. Psy- g-PMA resulted in higher decrease in the flocculation parameters such as total dissolved solid or total solids compared to psyllium. Hence the result shows the possible application of grafted psyllium in wastewater treatment.

    This article describes the development, internal psychometric, and external validation studies on scales designed to measure the Personality Psychopathology Five (PSY-5) from MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) items. Diverse and comprehensive data sets, representing various clinical and nonclinical populations, were classified into development and validation research samples. Item selection, retention, and exclusion procedures are detailed. The final set of PSY-5-RF scales contain 104 items, with no item overlap between scales (same as the original MMPI-2 PSY-5 scales), and no item overlap with the Demoralization scale. Internal consistency estimates are comparable to the longer MMPI-2 PSY-5 scales. Appropriate convergent and discriminant validity findings utilizing various self-report, collateral rating, and record review data are reported and discussed. A particular emphasis is offered for the unique aspects of the PSY-5 model: psychoticism and disconstraint. The findings are connected to the broader PSY-5 literature and the recommended review of systems (Harkness, Reynolds, & Lilienfeld, this issue) presented in this series of articles.

    The first observation of the Cabibbo-suppressed decay $\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p \\pi^-$ is reported using a data sample of proton-proton collisions at 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 $\\rm fb^{-1}$. A prominent signal is observed and the branching fraction relative to the decay mode $\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p K^-$ is determined to be $$ \\frac{{\\cal B}(\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p \\pi^-)}{{\\cal B}(\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p K^-)}=0.0824\\pm0.0025\\:(\\text{stat})\\pm0.0042\\:(\\text{syst}). $$ A search for direct CP violation is performed. The difference in the CP asymmetries between these two decays is found to be $$ {\\cal A}_{CP}(\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p \\pi^-)-{\\cal A}_{CP}(\\Lambda_b^0\\rightarrow J/\\psi p K^-)=(+5.7\\pm 2.3\\:(\\text{stat})\\pm1.2\\:(\\text{syst}))\\%, $$ which is compatible with CP symmetry at the $2.2\\sigma$ level.

    We review the progress on experimental studies of the non-$D\\bar D$ decays of the $\\psi(3770)$ resonance. With the world average of the observed cross sections for $D\\bar D$ production measured at 3.773 GeV by the MARK-I, MARK-II, BES and CLEO Collaborations, combined together with the cross section for $\\psi(3770)$ production at its peak as well as initial state radiative correction factor, we find that the non-$D\\bar D$ branching fraction of $\\psi(3770)$ decays is $B[\\psi(3770)\\to {\\rm non}-D\\bar D]=(19.8\\pm 1.8 \\pm 5.6)%$, which is consistent within error with $B[\\psi(3770)\\to {\\rm non}-D\\bar D]=(14.7\\pm 3.2)%$ measured previously by the BES Collaboration. In addition, a global amplitude analysis of the cross sections for $e^+e^- \\to {\\rm LH}$ (LH= light hadron) measured by the CLEO Collaboration shows that the light hadron branching fraction of $\\psi(3770)$ decays can be as large as about 11%. Combing the totally measured hadronic and electromegnatic transition rate together with the light hadron branchin...

    The production rates of heavy quarkonia states in A-A collisions provide sensitive probes to the hot and dense QGP. However, a reference for understanding the dissociation in the hot medium is necessary; p-A collisions open the possibility to study heavy quarkonia states in a smaller system. This is an important step in forming a baseline for understanding A-A collisions, as well as an investigation into the nature of modifications of the parton distributions in the nucleus. Using data collected at the LHC in 2013, the ATLAS experiment will show results on the prompt J/psi and psi(2S) nuclear modification factors and the double ratio, psi(2S) divided by J/Psi in p-Pb divided by the same in p-p, in p-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV. The charmonia states were reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel and the yield will be differentially presented in bins of transverse momentum, rapidity, and event activity.

    Using the $pp$ collision data collected by LHCb at center-of-mass energies $\\sqrt{s} \\, = 7 \\, {\\rm TeV} \\,$ and $8 \\, {\\rm TeV} \\,$, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3 \\, \\mathrm{fb}^{-1} \\,$, the ratio of the branching fraction of the $B_{c}^{+} \\to \\psi(2S)\\pi^+$ decay relative to that of the $B_{c}^{+} \\to J/\\psi\\pi^+$ decay is measured to be ${0.268 \\pm 0.032\\mathrm{\\,(stat)} \\pm 0.007\\mathrm{\\,(syst)} \\pm 0.006\\,(\\mathrm{BF}) }$. The first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is due to the uncertainties on the branching fractions of the $J/\\psi \\to \\mu^{+}\\mu^{-}$ and $\\psi(2S) \\to \\mu^{+}\\mu^{-}$ decays. To enhance the signal significance with limited $B_{c}^{+}$ statistics, the boosted decision tree selection is used to separate the signal and background effectively. The systematic uncertainties are discussed extensively. This measurement is consistent with the previous LHCb result, and the statistical uncertainty is halved.

    The differential cross-section as a function of rapidity has been measured for the exclusive production of $J/\\psi$ and $\\psi(2S)$ mesons in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV, using data collected by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 930 pb$^{-1}$. The cross-sections times branching fractions to two muons having pseudorapidities between 2.0 and 4.5 are measured to be $$\\begin{array}{rl} \\sigma_{pp\\rightarrow J/\\psi\\rightarrow{\\mu^+}{\\mu^-}}(2.0<\\eta_{\\mu^\\pm }<4.5)=&291\\pm 7\\pm19 {\\rm \\ pb},\\\\ \\sigma_{pp\\rightarrow\\psi(2S)\\rightarrow{\\mu^+}{\\mu^-}}(2.0<\\eta_{\\mu^\\pm}<4.5)=&6.5\\pm 0.9\\pm 0.4 {\\rm \\ pb},\\end{array}$$ where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The measurements agree with next-to-leading order QCD predictions as well as with models that include saturation effects.

    The first observation of the $\\overline{B}^0 \\rightarrow J/\\psi K^{+}K^{-}$ decay is presented with a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 $\\rm fb^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV collected with the LHCb detector. The branching fraction is measured to be $\\mathcal{B}(\\overline{B}^0 \\rightarrow J/\\psi K^{+}K^{-}) = (2.53\\pm 0.31 \\pm 0.19)\\times 10^{-6}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. An amplitude analysis of the final state in the $\\overline{B}^0 \\rightarrow J/\\psi K^{+}K^{-}$ decay is performed to separate resonant and nonresonant contributions in the $K^{+}K^{-}$ spectrum. Evidence of the $a_0(980)$ resonance is reported with statistical significance of 3.9 standard deviations. The corresponding product branching fraction is measured to be $\\mathcal{B}(\\overline{B}^0 \\rightarrow J/\\psi a_0(980),~a_0(980)\\rightarrow K^{+}K^{-})=(4.70\\pm3.31\\pm0.72)\\times10^{-7}$, yielding an upper limit of $\\mathcal{B}(\\ov...

    The production rates of heavy quarkonia in ion-ion collisions provide sensitive probes in the studies of the hot and dense matter formed in these collisions at high energies. However, a reference for understanding the behavior in the hot medium is necessary; p-A collisions open the possibility to study heavy quarkonia states in a smaller system of much lower average temperature. This is an important step in forming a baseline for understanding A-A collisions, as well as an investigation into the nature of modifications of the parton distributions in the nucleus. Using data collected at the LHC in 2013, we show results on the prompt J/{\\Psi} and {\\Psi}(2S) nuclear modification factors and the double ratio, {\\Psi}(2S) divided by J/{\\Psi} in p-Pb divided by the same in p-p, in p-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV. The charmonia states were reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel and the yield is analyzed differentially in bins of transverse momentum, rapidity, and event activity.

    The understanding of charmonium production in PbPb collisions requires the inclusion of many phenomena, such as dissociation in the quark gluon plasma and statistical recombination, on top of cold nuclear matter effects. Measurements of charmonium production in pPb collisions are crucial to disentangle the effects related to the presence of a quark gluon plasma from cold nuclear matter effects. In this paper, final prompt J/$\\psi$ results in pPb collisions at \\mbox{$\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}}$} $= 5.02$ TeV are presented, including the new measurement of the $R_{\\mathrm{pPb}}$ using the 2015 pp data taken at the same energy. In addition, new results are reported regarding the prompt $\\psi$(2S) meson production in pPb collisions at 5.02 TeV as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity. Final results on the relative J/$\\psi$ and $\\psi$(2S) modification, based on the pp and PbPb data collected at 5.02 TeV by CMS in 2015, are also reported.

    Highlights: • A benchmark exercise on stratification erosion in containment was conducted using a test in the PANDA facility. • Blind calculations were provided by nineteen participants. • Results were compared with experimental data. • A ranking was made. • A large spread of results was observed, with very few simulations providing accurate results for the most important variables, though not for velocities. - Abstract: The third International Benchmark Exercise (IBE-3) conducted under the auspices of OECD/NEA is based on the comparison of blind CFD simulations with experimental data addressing the erosion of a stratified layer by an off-axis buoyant jet in a large vessel. The numerical benchmark exercise is based on a dedicated experiment in the PANDA facility conducted at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) in Switzerland, using only one vessel. The use of non-prototypical fluids (i.e. helium as simulant for hydrogen, and air as simulant for steam), and the consequent absence of the complex physical effects produced by steam condensation enhanced the suitability of the data for CFD validation purposes. The test started with a helium–air layer at the top of the vessel and air in the lower part. The helium-rich layer was gradually eroded by a low-momentum air/helium jet emerging at a lower elevation. Blind calculation results were submitted by nineteen participants, and the calculation results have been compared with the PANDA data. This report, adopting the format of the reports for the two previous exercises, includes a ranking of the contributions, where the largest weight is given to the time progression of the erosion of the helium-rich layer. In accordance with the limited scope of the benchmark exercise, this report is more a collection of comparisons between calculated results and data than a synthesis. Therefore, the few conclusions are based on the mere observation of the agreement of the various submissions with the test result, and do not

    We analyze, and prove, the associativity of the new Z{sub 3} parafermionic chiral algebra which has been announced some time ago, with principal parafermionic fields having the conformal dimension {Delta}{sub {psi}}=8/3. In doing so we have developed a new method for analyzing the associativity of a given chiral algebra of parafermionic type, the method which might be of a more general significance than a particular conformal field theory studied in detail in this paper. Still, even in the context of our particular chiral algebra, of Z{sub 3} parafermions with {Delta}{sub {psi}}=8/3, the new method allowed us to give a proof of associativity which we consider to be complete.

    Computational modelling and simulation are among the disciplines that have seen the most dramatic growth in capabilities in the 2Oth Century. Within the past two decades, scientific computing has become an important contributor to all scientific research programs. Computational modelling and simulation are particularly indispensable for solving research problems that are unsolvable by traditional theoretical and experimental approaches, hazardous to study, or time consuming or expensive to solve by traditional means. Many such research areas are found in PSI's research portfolio. Advances in computing technologies (including hardware and software) during the past decade have set the stage for a major step forward in modelling and simulation. We have now arrived at a situation where we have a number of otherwise unsolvable problems, where simulations are as complex as the systems under study. In 2008 the High-Performance Computing (HPC) community entered the petascale area with the heterogeneous Opteron/Cell machine, called Road Runner built by IBM for the Los Alamos National Laboratory. We are on the brink of a time where the availability of many hundreds of thousands of cores will open up new challenging possibilities in physics, algorithms (numerical mathematics) and computer science. However, to deliver on this promise, it is not enough to provide 'peak' performance in terms of peta-flops, the maximum theoretical speed a computer can attain. Most important, this must be translated into corresponding increase in the capabilities of scientific codes. This is a daunting problem that can only be solved by increasing investment in hardware, in the accompanying system software that enables the reliable use of high-end computers, in scientific competence i.e. the mathematical (parallel) algorithms that are the basis of the codes, and education.

    Full Text Available In this study, porous silicon (PSi was prepared and tested as an extended gate field-effect transistor (EGFET for pH sensing. The prepared PSi has pore sizes in the range of 500 to 750 nm with a depth of approximately 42 µm. The results of testing PSi for hydrogen ion sensing in different pH buffer solutions reveal that the PSi has a sensitivity value of 66 mV/pH that is considered a super Nernstian value. The sensor considers stability to be in the pH range of 2 to 12. The hysteresis values of the prepared PSi sensor were approximately 8.2 and 10.5 mV in the low and high pH loop, respectively. The result of this study reveals a promising application of PSi in the field for detecting hydrogen ions in different solutions.

    We study the processes e+e- -> (J/psi gamma gamma) gamma and e+e- -> (J/psi pi- pi+) gamma where the hard photon radiated from an initial e+e- collision with center-of-mass (CM) energy near 10.58 GeV is detected. In the final state J/psi gamma gamma we consider J/psi pi0, J/psi eta, chi_{c1} gamma, and chi_{c2} gamma candidates. The invariant mass of the hadronic final state defines the effective e+e- CM energy in each event, so these data can be compared with direct e+e- measurements. We report 90% CL upper limits for the integrated cross section times branching fractions of the J/psi gamma gamma channels in the Y(4260) mass region.
