Electron Scattering by C4H10 and C6H6 in the Energy Range 100 1000 eV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate the applicability of the independent atom model (IAM) to elastic electron scattering from complex polyatomic molecules, namely C4H10 and C6H6, in the energy range 100-1000 eV. The cross sections of the elastic electron scattering are calculated by employing the IAM together with the relativistic partial waves. The incorporation of both the modified absorption potential and the extended structural factor in the IAM makes the elastic differential cross sections and momentum transfer cross sections have a good agreement with the available experimental data. The present simple model seems to be insensitive to the complexity of the target molecules so that the proposed procedure can be quite useful for calculation of electron scattering from bio-molecules.

Magnetic properties of Fe and Fe-Si alloys with {100}<0vw> texture  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When iron and its alloy sheets with clean metal surfaces undergo the ? to ? phase transformation, they develop strong {100}<0vw> texture with grain size being larger than the sheet thickness. For example, when Fe or Fe-1%Si sheets were subjected to the ? to ? phase transformation in a reducing gas atmosphere (hydrogen gas having the dew point below -50 °C), strong {100}<0vw> texture developed. Magnetic properties of Fe and Fe-Si alloys show that, by developing the {100}<0vw> texture, the core loss can be reduced by more than 25% and the permeability can be increased by 2-5 times. With 0.35 mm-thick Fe-1%Si with the {100}<0vw> texture, the magnetic properties are W15/50 (core loss at 1.5 T, 50 Hz) = 2.7 W/kg and B50 (magnetic flux density at 5000 A/m) = 1.80 T. The improvement of permeability together with reducing iron loss by texture control will make a significant contribution to improving power density as well as reducing copper losses in induction motors.

Hint from the interfamily mass hierarchy: Two vectorlike families in the TeV range  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Two vectorlike familes QL,R=(U, D, N, E)L,R and Q'L,R=(U', D', N', E')L,R with masses of order 1 TeV, one of which is a doublet of SU(2)L and the other a doublet of SU(2)R, have been predicted to exist, together with the three observed chiral families, in the context of a viable and economical SUSY preon model. The model itself possesses many attractive features which include explanations of the origins of (i) diverse mass scales, (ii) family replication, (iii) protection of the masses of the composite quarks and leptons compared to their compositeness scales, and (iv) interfamily mass hierarchy. The existence of the two vectorlike familes, a prediction of the model, turns out to be crucial especially for an explanation of the interfamily mass hierarchy (IFMH). Given the simplicity of the explanation, the observed IFMH in turn appears to us to be a strong hint in favor of the existence of the two vectorlike families. This paper is devoted to a detailed study of the expected masses, mixings and decay modes of the fermions belonging to the two vectorlike families, in the context of the SUSY preon model, with the inclusion of the renormalization effects due to the standard model gauge interactions. Including QCQ renormalization effects, the masses of the vectorlike quarks are expected to lie in the range of 500 GeV to about 2.5 TeV, while those of the vectorlike leptons are expected to be in the range of 200 GeV to 1 TeV. Their mass pattern and decay modes exhibit certain distinguishing features and characteristic signals. For example, when the CERN LHC and, possibly a future version of the SSC are built, pair production of the vectorlike quarks would lead to systems such as (bbŻ+4Z+W+W-) and (bbŻ+2Z+W+W-), while an e-e+ linear collider (NLC) of suitable energy can produce appreciably a single neutral heavy lepton N together, with ??, followed by the decay of N into (Z+??)-->(e-e+)+??. This last signal may conceivably materialize even at CERN LEP 200 if N is lighter than about 190 GeV.

Accretion in the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt: Forming 100-1000 KM Radius Bodies at 30 AU and Beyond.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We employ a time-dependent collisional evolution code to study the conditions under which the ?50-200km radius Edgeworth-Kuiper Objects (EKOs) in the region between 30 and 50 AU [now called the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt, or EKB; Edgeworth, K. E. 1943, JBAA, 53, 181; Edgeworth, K. E. 1949, MNRAS, 109, 600; Kuiper, G. P. 1951, Astrophysics: A Topical Symposium (McGraw-Hill, New York)] were formed. Assuming that these bodies were created by pairwise accretion beginning with 1 to 10 km building blocks, we find that three conditions were required, namely, (i) at least 10Msun and more likely 35 Msunof solids in the primordial 30-50 AU zone, (ii) mean random orbital eccentricities of order 0.002 or smaller, and (iii) mechanically strong building blocks. Furthermore, we find that the accretion of 100-200 km radius bodies in the 30-50 AU region from collisions among a starting population of 1-10 km building blocks required ?108-109 yr, with the lower range only being reached for 30-50 AU zone masses approaching of solids or mean random orbital eccentricities <0.005 (which may not be realistic after gas dissipation). Therefore, unless accretion had already produced many building blocks significantly larger than 10 km in diameter at the time the nebular gas was removed, our results indicate that Neptune did not form on a time scale much shorter than ˜70 Myr, and could well have required many hundreds of Myr to approach its final mass. We also explore the growth of Pluto-scale (i.e., radius 1000-1200 km) objects in the 30-50 AU region under a variety of assumptions. We further find that once ˜300 hundred kilometer radius objects were formed, the growth of 1000 km radius and larger objects occurs relatively easily and comparatively quickly. The lack of many Plutos in the 30-50 AU zone therefore argues strongly that growth was terminated in that region rather abruptly at the time the presently observed population of 100-200 km radius EKOs were being completed. In the region beyond 50 AU where Neptune's dynamical influence was much reduced, model runs yield 100-1000 km radius, and perhaps even larger bodies which should be detectable with on-going or soon-to-be started surveys. We suggest that if dynamical conditions did not remain calm enough to allow Pluto itself to be grown in the 30-50 AU zone before perturbations from Neptune created a dynamically erosive, low-mass environment there, then it may be that Pluto was grown beyond the influence of Neptune's perturbations and later transported inward, perhaps in part via the Charon-forming collision.

Long-range and short-range dihadron angular correlations in central PbPb collisions at sqrt {{{s_{text{NN}}}}} = 2.76 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

First measurements of dihadron correlationsfor charged particles are presented for central PbPb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 2.76TeV over a broad range in relative pseudorapidity (??) and the full range of relative azimuthal angle (??). The data were collected with the CMS detector, at the LHC. A broadening of the away-side (?? ? ?) azimuthal correlation is observed at all ??, as compared to the measurements in pp collisions. Furthermore, long-range dihadron correlations in ?? are observed for particles with similar ? values. This phenomenon, also known as the "ridge", persists up to at least |??| = 4. For particles with transverse momenta ( p T) of2-4 GeV/ c, the ridge is found to be most prominent when these particles are correlated with particles of p T = 2-6 GeV/ c, and to be much reduced when paired with particles of p T = 10-12 GeV/ c.

Sea-level muon spectrum in the energy range 1-10 TeV from the data of underground experiments  

SciTech Connect

Within an adjoint approach, the properties of the muon component in various types of rock and in water are calculated with allowance for fluctuations of energy losses in all muon-interaction processes. The behavior of the muon spectrum at sea level is established on the basis of a comparison of the muon absorption curves obtained in this way and experimental data from underground facilities. It is shown that the deficit of the calculated muon flux obtained with the aid of data from direct measurements of the spectra of primary nuclei and Reggeon models of nuclear interactions is not less than 50% in the energy range 1-10 TeV.

Long-range angular correlations of ?, K and p in p-Pb collisions at sNN=5.02 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Angular correlations between unidentified charged trigger particles and various species of charged associated particles (unidentified particles, pions, kaons, protons and antiprotons) are measured by the ALICE detector in p-Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV in the transverse-momentum range 0.3range |?lab|<0.8. Fourier coefficients are extracted from the long-range correlations projected onto the azimuthal angle difference and studied as a function of pT and in intervals of event multiplicity. In high-multiplicity events, the second-order coefficient for protons, v2p, is observed to be smaller than that for pions, v2?, up to about pT=2 GeV/c. To reduce correlations due to jets, the per-trigger yield measured in low-multiplicity events is subtracted from that in high-multiplicity events. A two-ridge structure is obtained for all particle species. The Fourier decomposition of this structure shows that the second-order coefficients for pions and kaons are similar. The v2p is found to be smaller at low pT and larger at higher pT than v2?, with a crossing occurring at about 2 GeV/c. This is qualitatively similar to the elliptic-flow pattern observed in heavy-ion collisions. A mass ordering effect at low transverse momenta is consistent with expectations from hydrodynamic model calculations assuming a collectively expanding system.

Search for a SM Higgs boson in the H ? Z*Z ? ?+?-qq? channel in the mass range 120 - 180 GeV with the ATLAS Detector at ?s = 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A summary of the first study is given for the decay channel H ? Z*Z ? ?+?-qq? (? = e, ?) in the Higgs boson mass range 120 - 180 GeV, using the pp collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment at ?s = 7 TeV at the LHC. Data driven methods to estimate the background and new techniques to improve the mass resolution of the hadronic Z boson decay are used. Events with 0 or 1 b-jets and events with 2 b-jets are treated as separated channels. No significant excess of events above the estimated background is observed; upper limits at 95% C.L. on the Higgs production cross section are derived.

Vector meson production in pp collision at = 7 TeV and at = 2.76 TeV measured with the ALICE detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Strangeness enhancement is one of the possible signatures of the Quark Gluon Plasma formation and can be accessed through the measurement of phi meson production with respect to ? and ? mesons. Vector mesons can be detected through their decays into muon pairs with the ALICE muon spectrometer. We present transverse momentum spectra of phi and ? + ? mesons in the rapidity range 2.5 < y < 4 in p-p collisions at = 7 TeV, as well as the absolute production cross sections at = 7 TeV and at = 2.76 TeV. We also show the phi/(? + ?) ratio in Pb-Pb collisions at = 2.76 TeV.

Predicted Extragalactic TeV Gamma-Ray Sources  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We suggest that low-redshift X-ray--selected BL Lacertae objects (XBLs) may be the only extragalactic gamma -ray sources observable at TeV energies. We use simple physical considerations involving synchrotron and Compton component spectra for blazars to suggest why the observed TeV sources are XBLs, whereas mostly radio-selected BL objects (RBLs) and flat spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs) are seen at GeV energies. These considerations indicate that the differences between XBLs and RBLs cannot be explained purely as relativistic jet orientation effects. We note that the only extragalactic TeV sources that have been observed are XBLs and that a nearby RBL with a very hard spectrum in the GeV range has not been seen at TeV energies. We also note that of the 14 BL Lac objects observed by EGRET, 12 are RBLs, whereas only two are XBLs. We give a list of nearby XBLs that we consider to be good candidate TeV sources and predict estimated TeV fluxes for these objects.

TeV blazar variability: the firehose instability?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recently observed minute timescale variability of blazar emission at TeV energies has imposed severe constraints on jet models and TeV emission mechanisms. %The TeV emission is assumed to be due to inverse Compton emission off the electrons, which have a random Lorentz factor ? ˜ 10^6. We focus on a robust jet instability to explain this variability. As a consequence of the bulk outflow of the jet plasma, the pressure is likely to be anisotropic, with the parallel pressure P_{||} in the forward jet direction exceeding the perpendicular pressure P_{\\perp}. Under these circumstances, the jet is susceptible to the firehose instability, which can cause disruptions in the large scale jet structure and result in variability of the observed radiation. %We investigate if the large-scale structure of the jet can be disrupted by the firehose instability. For a realistic range of parameters, we find that the growth timescale of the firehose instability is ? a few minutes, in good agreement with the observed TeV variability timescales for Mrk 501 (Albert et al. 2007) and PKS 2155-304 (Aharonian et al. 2007). %We therefore conclude that the relativistic firehose instability is a viable candidate for explaining minute timescale TeV variability.

Scaling linear colliders to 5 TeV and above  

SciTech Connect

Detailed designs exist at present for linear colliders in the 0.5-1.0 TeV center-of-mass energy range. For linear colliders driven by discrete rf sources (klystrons), the rf operating frequencies range from 1.3 GHz to 14 GHz, and the unloaded accelerating gradients from 21 MV/m to 100 MV/m. Except for the collider design at 1.3 GHz (TESLA) which uses superconducting accelerating structures, the accelerating gradients vary roughly linearly with the rf frequency. This correlation between gradient and frequency follows from the necessity to keep the ac {open_quotes}wall plug{close_quotes} power within reasonable bounds. For linear colliders at energies of 5 TeV and above, even higher accelerating gradients and rf operating frequencies will be required if both the total machine length and ac power are to be kept within reasonable limits. An rf system for a 5 TeV collider operating at 34 GHz is outlined, and it is shown that there are reasonable candidates for microwave tube sources which, together with rf pulse compression, are capable of supplying the required rf power. Some possibilities for a 15 TeV collider at 91 GHz are briefly discussed.

TeV black hole fragmentation and detectability in extensive air showers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In models with large extra dimensions, particle collisions with a center-of-mass energy larger than the fundamental gravitational scale can generate nonperturbative gravitational objects. Since cosmic rays have been observed with energies above 108 TeV, gravitational effects in the TeV energy range can, in principle, be observed by ultrahigh energy cosmic ray detectors. We consider the interaction of ultrahigh energy neutrinos in the atmosphere and compare extensive air showers from TeV black hole formation and fragmentation with standard model processes. Departures from the standard model predictions arise in the interaction cross sections and in the multiplicity of secondary particles. Large theoretical uncertainties in the black hole cross section weaken attempts to constrain TeV gravity based solely on differences between predicted and observed event rates. The large multiplicity of secondaries in black hole fragmentation enhances the detectability of TeV gravity effects. We simulate TeV black hole air showers using PYTHIA and AIRES, and find that black-hole induced air showers are quite distinct from standard model air showers. However, the limited amount of information registered by realistic detectors together with large air shower fluctuations limit in practice the ability to distinguish TeV gravity events from standard model events in a shower by shower case. We discuss possible strategies to optimize the detectability of black hole events and propose a few unique signatures that may allow future high statistics detectors to separate black hole from standard model events.

Constraining the Intergalactic Magnetic Field with Cascading TeV Emission from Blazars  

Microsoft Academic Search

A significant fraction of the power emitted by blazars in the TeV energy range should be attenuated by photon-photon pair production with background light. The ensuing electromagnetic cascade upscatters microwave background photons, and as a result the initial TeV radiation emerges as photons of lower energy. The angular and time dependence of the observed cascade spectrum is very sensitive to

Sub-PeV Neutrinos from TeV Unidentified Sources in the Galaxy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The IceCube collaboration discovery of 28 high-energy neutrinos over the energy range 30 TeV <~ ?? <~ 1 PeV, a 4.3? excess over expected backgrounds, represents the first high-confidence detection of cosmic neutrinos at these energies. In light of this discovery, we explore the possibility that some of the sub-PeV cosmic neutrinos might originate in our Galaxy's TeV unidentified (TeV UnID) sources. While typically resolved at TeV energies, these sources lack prominent radio or X-ray counterparts, and so have been considered promising sites for hadron acceleration within our Galaxy. Modeling the TeV UnID sources as Galactic hypernova remnants, we predict sub-PeV neutrino fluxes and spectra consistent with their contributing a minority of n ? <~ 2 of the observed events. This is consistent with our analysis of the spatial distribution of the sub-PeV neutrinos and TeV UnID sources, which finds that a best-fit of one, and maximum of 3.8 (at 90% confidence), of the ?16 non-atmospheric sub-PeV neutrinos may originate in the TeV UnID sources, with the remaining 75%-95% of events being drawn from an isotropic background. If our scenario is correct, we expect excess sub-PeV neutrinos to accumulate along the Galactic plane, within |l| <~ ą 30° of the Galactic center and in the Cygnus region, as observations by IceCube and other high-energy neutrino facilities go forward. Our scenario also has implications for radio, X-ray, and TeV observations of the TeV UnID sources.

Opportunities for TeV Laser Acceleration  

SciTech Connect

A set of ballpark parameters for laser, plasma, and accelerator technologies that define for electron energies reaching as high as TeV are identified. These ballpark parameters are carved out from the fundamental scaling laws that govern laser acceleration, theoretically suggested and experimentally explored over a wide range in the recent years. In the density regime on the order of 10{sup 16} cm{sup -3}, the appropriate laser technology, we find, matches well with that of a highly efficient high fluence LD driven Yb ceramic laser. Further, the collective acceleration technique applies to compactify the beam stoppage stage by adopting the beam-plasma wave deceleration, which contributes to significantly enhance the stopping power and energy recovery capability of the beam. Thus we find the confluence of the needed laser acceleration parameters dictated by these scaling laws and the emerging laser technology. This may herald a new technology in the ultrahigh energy frontier.

Measurement of dijet angular distributions and search for quark compositeness in pp collisions at ?s = 7 TeV.  

PubMed

Dijet angular distributions are measured over a wide range of dijet invariant masses in pp collisions at ?s = 7 TeV, at the CERN LHC. The event sample, recorded with the CMS detector, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb?š. The data are found to be in good agreement with the predictions of perturbative QCD, and yield no evidence of quark compositeness. With a modified frequentist approach, a lower limit on the contact interaction scale for left-handed quarks of ?? = 5.6 TeV (?? = 6.7 TeV) for destructive (constructive) interference is obtained at the 95% confidence level.

Measurement of the differential dijet production cross section in proton-proton collisions at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A measurement of the double-differential inclusive dijet production cross section in proton-proton collisions at s=7 TeV is presented as a function of the dijet invariant mass and jet rapidity. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb-1, recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC. The measurement covers the dijet mass range 0.2 TeV to 3.5 TeV and jet rapidities up to |y|=2.5. It is found to be in good agreement with next-to-leading-order QCD predictions.

Search for narrow resonances and quantum black holes in inclusive and b-tagged dijet mass spectra from pp collisions at sqrt{s}=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for narrow resonances and quantum black holes is performed in inclusive and b-tagged dijet mass spectra measured with the CMS detector at the LHC. The data set corresponds to 5 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected in pp collisions at sqrt{s}=7 TeV. No narrow resonances or quantum black holes are observed. Model-independent upper limits at the 95% confidence level are obtained on the product of the cross section, branching fraction into dijets, and acceptance for three scenarios: decay into quark-quark, quark-gluon, and gluon-gluon pairs. Specific lower limits are set on the mass of string resonances (4.31 TeV), excited quarks (3.32 TeV), axigluons and colorons (3.36 TeV), scalar color-octet resonances (2.07 TeV), E6 diquarks (3.75 TeV), and on the masses of W' (1.92 TeV) and Z' (1.47 TeV) bosons. The limits on the minimum mass of quantum black holes range from 4 to 5.3 TeV. In addition, b-quark tagging is applied to the two leading jets and upper limits are set on the production of narrow dijet resonances in a model-independent fashion as a function of the branching fraction to b-jet pairs.[Figure not available: see fulltext.

Search for new particles decaying to diject in 7 TeV proton-proton collisions at CMS  

SciTech Connect

This thesis presents a measurement of the dijet invariant mass spectrum and search for new particles decaying to dijets at CMS in 7 TeV pp collisions using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.875 pb{sup -1}. The measured dijet mass distribution is compared to QCD prediction from PYTHIA . It is required the pseudorapidity separation of the two jets to satisfy |Dh| < 1.3 with each jet inside the region of |{eta}| < 2.5. The observed dijet mass spectrum is fitted by a smooth function to search for dijet resonances. Since there is no evidence for dijet resonances, the upper limits at 95% Confidence Level (C.L.) on the resonance cross section are set. These generic cross section limits are compared with theoretical predictions for the cross section for several models of new particles: string resonances, axigluons, colorons, excited quarks, E{sub 6} diquarks, Randall-Sundrum gravitons, W' and Z'. It is excluded at 95% C.L. string resonances in the mass range 0.50 < M(S) < 2.50 TeV, excited quarks in the mass range 0.50 < M(q*) < 1.58 TeV, axigluons and colorons in the mass ranges 0.50 < M(A) < 1.17 TeV and 1.47 < M(A) < 1.52 TeV, and E{sub 6} diquarks in the mass ranges 0.50 < M(D) < 0.58 TeV, 0.97 < M(D) < 1.08 TeV, and 1.45 < M(D) < 1.60 TeV. These exclusions extend previously published limits on all models.

TeV Gamma-Ray Sources from a Survey of the Galactic Plane with Milagro  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A survey of Galactic gamma-ray sources at a median energy of ~20 TeV has been performed using the Milagro Gamma-Ray Observatory. Eight candidate sources of TeV emission are detected with pretrial significances >4.5 ? in the region of Galactic longitude l ? [30°, 220°] and latitude b ? [-10°, 10°]. Four of these sources, including the Crab Nebula and the recently published MGRO J2019+37, are observed with significances >4 ? after accounting for the trials. All four of these sources are also coincident with EGRET sources. Two of the lower significance sources are coincident with EGRET sources, and one of these sources is Geminga. The other two candidates are in the Cygnus region of the Galaxy. Several of the sources appear to be spatially extended. The fluxes of the sources at 20 TeV range from ~25% of the Crab flux to nearly as bright as the Crab.

The TeV spectrum of MKN 501 as measured during the high state in 1997 by the HEGRA stereoscopic system of imaging air ?erenkov telescopes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The BL Lac object Mkn 501 has shown very high emission in TeV ?-rays from March to October, 1997. During this period the source was continuously monitored with the HEGRA stereoscopic system of 4 imaging air ?erenkov telescopes for a total exposure time of 110 hours. The unprecedented statistics of about 38 000 TeV photons, combined with the good energy resolution of ˜ 20% over the entire energy range and with detailed simulations of the detector response, allowed a determination of the average energy spectrum from 500 GeV to 24 TeV. Although the ?-ray flux varied strongly with time, the daily energy spectra remained rather constant in their shape. Therefore, it is justified to derive a time averaged spectrum and thus to extend, for the first time, the spectral measurement well beyond 10 TeV. The energy resolution restricts the maximum true energy of the detected ?-rays at ˜ 18 TeV. The TeV spectrum of Mkn 501 shows a gradual steepening which could be caused by a number of physical processes, such as a limited energy range of the radiating particles, intrinsic ?-ray absorption inside the source, the Klein-Nishina effect (in the case of an inverse Compton origin of the radiation) and finally, absorption of the TeV ?-rays propagating in the intergalactic medium.

Spectra of cosmic rays at TeV energies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Cosmic rays were discovered 100 years ago with an experiment on a manned balloon that ascended to only ~ 5 km. Current helium-filled balloons for scientific research fly at altitudes around 40 km, carrying state-of-the-art particle detectors to measure TeV cosmic ray elemental spectra over a wide energy range. A challenge of balloon-borne and space-based experiments for high-energy measurements is that the detectors must be large enough to collect adequate statistics, yet stay within the weight limit for available space flight. Innovative approaches now promise high quality measurements over an energy range that was not previously possible. Measurement techniques, recent results and their implications are reviewed. The outlook for existing and future experiments is also discussed.

Expectations for neutron-antineutron oscillation time from TeV scale baryogenesis  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A TeV scale extension of the standard model that incorporates the seesaw mechanism for neutrino masses along with quark-lepton unification is presented. It is shown that this model leads to the ?B = 2 baryon number violating process of neutron-antineutron (n - n) oscillation. The model has all the ingredients to generate the observed baryon asymmetry of the universe using the B-violating decay of a scalar field involved in the seesaw mechanism. The B-violating decay arises from the exchange of color sextet scalars which have TeV scale masses. Baryogenesis occurs below the sphaleron decoupling temperature and has been termed post-sphaleron baryogenesis. Here we show that the constraints of TeV scale baryogenesis, when combined with the neutrino oscillation data and restrictions from flavor changing neutral currents mediated by the colored scalars imply an upper limit on the n - n oscillation time of 5 × 1010 sec. regardless of the quark-lepton unification scale. If this scale is relatively low, in the (200 - 250) TeV range, ?n-n is predicted to be less than 1010 sec., which is accessible to the next generation of proposed experiments.

Observation of the TeV Gamma-Ray Source MGRO J1908+06 with ARGO-YBJ  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The extended gamma-ray source MGRO J1908+06, discovered by the Milagro air shower detector in 2007, has been observed for ~4 years by the ARGO-YBJ experiment at TeV energies, with a statistical significance of 6.2 standard deviations. The peak of the signal is found at a position consistent with the pulsar PSR J1907+0602. Parameterizing the source shape with a two-dimensional Gauss function, we estimate an extension of ?ext = 0fdg49 ą 0fdg22, which is consistent with a previous measurement by the Cherenkov Array H.E.S.S. The observed energy spectrum is dN/dE = 6.1 ą 1.4 × 10-13 (E/4 TeV)-2.54 ą 0.36 photons cm-2 s-1 TeV-1, in the energy range of ~1-20 TeV. The measured gamma-ray flux is consistent with the results of the Milagro detector, but is ~2-3 times larger than the flux previously derived by H.E.S.S. at energies of a few TeV. The continuity of the Milagro and ARGO-YBJ observations and the stable excess rate observed by ARGO-YBJ and recorded in four years of data support the identification of MGRO J1908+06 as the steady powerful TeV pulsar wind nebula of PSR J1907+0602, with an integrated luminosity over 1 TeV ~ 1.8 times the luminosity of the Crab Nebula.

TeV electron measurement with CREST experiment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

CREST, the Cosmic Ray Electron Synchrotron Telescope is a balloon-borne experiment de-signed to measure the spectrum of multi-TeV electrons by the detection of the x-ray synchrotron photons generated in the magnetic field of the Earth. Electrons in the TeV range are expected to reflect the properties of local sources because fluxes from remote locations are suppressed by radiative losses during propagation. Since CREST needs to intersect only a portion of the kilometers-long trail of photons generated by the high-energy electron, the method yields a larger effective area than the physical size of the detector, boosting detection areas. The in-strument is composed of an array of 1024 BaF2 crystals and a set of scintillating veto counters. A long duration balloon flight in Antarctica is currently planned for the 2010-11 season.

TEV Burst of Gamma-Ray Bursts and Ultra-High-Energy Cosmic Rays  

Microsoft Academic Search

Some recent experiments detecting very high energy (VHE) gamma rays above 10-20 TeV independently reported VHE bursts for some bright gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). If these signals are truly from GRBs, these GRBs must emit a much larger amount of energy as VHE gamma rays than in the ordinary photon energy range of GRBs (keV-MeV). We show that such extreme phenomena

Dijet angular distribution in ppŻ collisions at &surd;s =1.8 TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

The dijet angular distribution is measured in the Collider Detector at Fermilab. This measurement covers higher mass ranges and larger scattering angles than previously possible. Good agreement is observed between the data and both leading-order [O(alpha2s)] and next-to-leading order [O(alpha3s)] QCD calculations. A limit on quark compositeness of Lambdac>1.0 TeV is obtained.

Search for large extra dimensions in dimuon and dielectron events in pp collisions at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results are presented from a search for large, extra spatial dimensions in events with either two isolated muons or two isolated electrons. The data are from proton-proton interactions at s=7 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. The size of the data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of approximately 2 fb. The observed dimuon and dielectron mass spectra are found to be consistent with standard-model expectations. Depending on the number of extra dimensions, the 95% confidence level limits from the combined ?? and ee channels range from Ms>2.4 TeV to Ms>3.8 TeV, where Ms characterizes the scale for the onset of quantum gravity.

The H.E.S.S. view of the Milky Way in TeV light  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Since 2003 the H.E.S.S. collaboration has been operating an array of four imaging Cherenkov telescopes in the Khomas Highlands of Namibia. H.E.S.S. can detect gamma rays in the energy range 100 GeV to 100 TeV, has a large field of view (5 degree), good angular resolution (0.1 degree), energy resolution (15%) and sensitivity (a 1% Crab flux point source is detected at 5 sigma significance in 25 h). About half of the available observing time has been spent on the Milky Way, either in scan mode or on individual sources, resulting in the detection of more than 60 Galactic TeV sources. In this talk the two most numerous source classes will be discussed, pulsar wind nebulae and supernova remnants. For the identification and understanding of the TeV emission seen by H.E.S.S. additional measurements of non-thermal emission, mainly in the radio, X-ray and lower-energy gamma-ray bands, are critical. Since August 2008 the Fermi Large Area Telescope has been scanning the whole sky in the energy range from 20 MeV to more than 300 GeV and has detected about 200 Galactic sources as well as diffuse emission from the Milky Way. This talk will give an overview of Galactic H.E.S.S. observations in the multi-wavelength context, with a focus on Fermi.

Probing TeV Scale Seesaw and Leptogenesis at the LHC  

SciTech Connect

If the seesaw mechanism is responsible for neutrino masses, an important question for physics beyond the standard model is the scale of B-L symmetry breaking responsible for the right-handed neutrino masses. Assuming this scale to be in the TeV range makes it accessible at the LHC. Here we discuss the compatibility of low-scale B-L symmetry with leptogenesis as the mechanism for understanding the origin of matter, and whether a direct collider probe of this mechanism is possible. We find that successful leptogenesis implies a lower bound M{sub Z}'>=2.6 TeV, which is in the LHC reach. Moreover, it may be possible to directly probe leptogenesis via a difference in the number of positive and negative like-sign dilepton events originating from right-handed neutrino decays.

Evidence for TeV Gamma-Ray Emission from a Region of the Galactic Plane  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Gamma-ray emission from a narrow band at the galactic equator has previously been detected up to 30 GeV. We report evidence for a TeV gamma-ray signal from a region of the galactic plane by Milagro, a large-field-of-view water Cherenkov detector for extensive air showers. An excess with a significance of 4.5 standard deviations has been observed from the region of galactic longitude l?(40°,100°) and latitude |b|<5°. Under the assumption of a simple power law spectrum, with no cutoff in the EGRET-Milagro energy range, the measured integral flux is ??(>3.5TeV)=(6.4ą1.4ą2.1)×10-11cm-2s-1sr-1. This flux is consistent with an extrapolation of the EGRET spectrum between 1 and 30 GeV in this galactic region.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

BL Lac objects are the most numerous class of extragalactic TeV-detected sources. One of the biggest difficulties in investigating their TeV emission is due to their limited number, since only 47 BL Lac objects are known to be TeV emitters. In this paper, we propose new criteria to select TeV BL Lac candidates based on infrared and X-ray observations. We apply our selection criteria to the BL Lac objects listed in the ROMA-BZCAT catalog, thereby identifying 41 potential TeV emitters. We then perform a search over a more extended sample combining the ROSAT bright source catalog and the WISE all-sky survey, revealing 54 additional candidates for TeV observations. Our investigation also led to a tentative classification of 16 unidentified X-ray sources as BL Lac candidates. This analysis provides new interesting BL Lac targets for future observations with ground-based Cherenkov telescopes.

TeV emission from close binaries  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is commonly accepted that candidates for very high energy ?-ray sources are neutron stars, binary systems, black holes etc. Close binary systems containing a normal hot star and a neutron star (or a black hole) form an important class of very high energy ?-ray sources. Such systems are variable in any region of the electromagnetic spectrum and they enable us to study various stages of stellar evolution, accretion processes, mechanisms of particle acceleration, etc. Phenomena connected with this class of very high energy ?-ray sources are discussed. Particular emphasis has been placed on the TeV energy region.

Spectral measurements of TeV ?-ray emission from Mkn501 and Mkn421 using the HEGRA stereoscopic system of IACTs  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Since October'96 the HEGRA collaboration is operating the first stereoscopic system world wide. It consists of five imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes (IACTs) installed at La Palma, Canary Islands. The performance of the system shows its unique capabilities for the study of TeV ?-ray sources with an energy threshold of 500 GeV, an angular resolution of 0.1°, and an energy resolution of better than 20%. The stereoscopic system is able to detect within an hour a ?-ray flux of ?F?10-11 ergs/cm2 sec at 1 TeV with a signal-to-noise ratio of 5?. The recently developed technique of spectrum evaluation from the stereoscopic data was used in the observations of two BL Lac objects-Mkn501 and Mkn421. The Mkn501 flared with up to ten times the Crab flux in 1997 with an average flux of about three Crabs. Recording of several Cherenkov light images from an individual air shower and the unprecedented statistics of about 38,000 TeV ?-rays allowed us to test each step of the spectrum evaluation procedure in great detail and to extend the energy measurements far beyond 10 TeV. Despite the low state of TeV emission of Mkn421 during 1997 and 1998 the spectrum was measured over the energy range from 500 GeV to ~7 TeV. .

The time averaged TeV energy spectrum of MKN 501 of the extraordinary 1997 outburst as measured with the stereoscopic Cherenkov telescope system of HEGRA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

During the several months of the outburst of Mkn 501 in 1997 the source has been monitored in TeV gamma -ray s with the HEGRA stereoscopic system of imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. Quite remarkably it turned out that the shapes of the daily gamma -ray energy spectra remained essentially stable throughout the entire state of high activity despite dramatic flux variations during this period. The derivation of a long term time-averaged energy spectrum, based on more than 38,000 detected TeV photons, is therefore physically meaningful. The unprecedented gamma -ray statistics combined with the 20% energy resolution of the instrument resulted in the first detection of gamma -rays from an extragalactic source well beyond 10 TeV, and the first high accuracy measurement of an exponential cutoff in the energy region above 5 TeV deeply into the exponential regime. From 500 GeV to 24 TeV the differential photon spectrum is well approximated by a power-law with an exponential cutoff: d N/d E=N_0 (E/1 TeV)(-alpha ) exp {(-E/E_0)}, with N_0=(10.8 +/-0.2_stat +/-2.1_sys) * 10(-11) cm(-2) s(-1) TeV(-1) , alpha =1.92 +/-0.03_stat +/-0.20_sys, and E_0=(6.2 +/-0.4_stat (-1.5 +2.9)_sys) TeV. We summarize the methods for the evaluation of the energy spectrum in a broad dynamical range which covers almost two energy decades, and study in detail the principal sources of systematic errors. We also discuss several important astrophysical implications of the observed result concerning the production and absorption mechanisms of gamma -ray s in the emitting jet and the modifications of the initial spectrum of TeV radiation due to its interaction with the diffuse extragalactic background radiation.

TeV light curve of PSR B1259-63/SS2883  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The inverse Compton (IC) scattering of ultrarelativistic electrons accelerated at the pulsar wind termination shock is generally believed to be responsible for TeV gamma-ray signal recently reported from the binary system PSR B1259-63/SS2883. While this process can explain the energy spectrum of the observed TeV emission, the gamma-ray fluxes detected by the Array of Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (HESS) at different epochs do not agree with the published theoretical predictions of the TeV light curve. The main objective of this paper is to show that the HESS results can be explained, under certain reasonable assumptions concerning the cooling of relativistic electrons, by IC scenarios of gamma-ray production in PSR B1259-63. In this paper we study evolution of the energy spectra of relativistic electrons under different assumptions about the acceleration and energy-loss rates of electrons, and the impact of these processes on the light curve of IC gamma-rays. We demonstrate that the observed TeV light curve can be explained (i) by adiabatic losses which dominate over the entire trajectory of the pulsar with a significant increase towards the periastron or (ii) by the `early' (sub-TeV) cut-offs in the energy spectra of electrons due to the enhanced rate of Compton losses close to the periastron. The first four data points obtained just after periastron comprise an exception - possibly due to interaction with the Be star disc, which introduces additional physics not included in the presented model. The calculated spectral and temporal characteristics of the TeV radiation provide conclusive tests to distinguish between these two working hypotheses. The Compton deceleration of the electron-positron pulsar wind contributes to the decrease of the non-thermal power released in the accelerated electrons after the wind termination, and thus to the reduction of the IC and synchrotron components of radiation close to the periastron. Although this effect alone cannot explain the observed TeV and X-ray light curves, the Comptonization of the cold ultrarelativistic wind leads to the formation of gamma-radiation with a specific line-type energy spectrum. While the HESS data already constrain the Lorentz factor of the wind, ? <= 106 (for the most likely orbit inclination angle i = 35°, and assuming an isotropic pulsar wind), future observations of this object with GLAST should allow a deep probe of the wind Lorentz factor in the range between 104 and 106.

Search for excited leptons in pp collisions at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results are presented of a search for compositeness in electrons and muons using a data sample of pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy s=7 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb. Excited leptons (?*) are assumed to be produced via contact interactions in conjunction with a standard model lepton and to decay via ?*???, yielding a final state with two energetic leptons and a photon. The number of events observed in data is consistent with that expected from the standard model. The 95% confidence upper limits for the cross section for the production and decay of excited electrons (muons), with masses ranging from 0.6 to 2 TeV, are 1.48 to 1.24 fb (1.31 to 1.11 fb). Excited leptons with masses below 1.9 TeV are excluded for the case where the contact interaction scale equals the excited lepton mass. The limits on the cross sections are the most stringent ones published to date.

Anisotropy of TeV Cosmic Rays and Outer Heliospheric Boundaries  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Cosmic rays in the energy range from about tens of GeV to several hundreds of TeV are observed on Earth, with an energy-dependent anisotropy of order 0.01%-0.1% and a consistent topology that appears to significantly change at higher energy. The nearest and most recent galactic cosmic-ray sources might stochastically dominate the observation and possibly explain a change in orientation of the anisotropy as a function of energy. However, the diffusion approximation is not able to explain its non-dipolar structure and, in particular, the significant contribution of small angular scale features. Particle propagation within the mean free path in the local interstellar medium might have a major role in determining the properties of galactic cosmic rays, such as their arrival distribution. In particular, scattering on perturbations induced in the local interstellar magnetic field by the heliosphere wake may cause a re-distribution of anisotropic cosmic rays below about 100 TeV toward the direction of the elongated heliotail and of the local interstellar magnetic field in the outer heliosphere. Such scattering processes are considered responsible for the observed TeV cosmic-ray global anisotropy and its fine angular structure.

Zinc finger as distance determinant in the flexible linker of intron endonuclease I-TevI  

PubMed Central

I-TevI, the phage T4 td intron-encoded endonuclease, recognizes a lengthy DNA target and initiates intron mobility by introducing a double-strand break in the homing site. The enzyme uses both sequence and distance determinants to cleave the DNA 23–25 bp upstream of the intron insertion site. I-TevI consists of an N-terminal catalytic domain and a C-terminal DNA-binding domain separated by a long, flexible linker. The DNA-binding domain consists of three subdomains: a zinc finger, a minor-groove binding ?-helix, and a helix–turn–helix. In this study, a mutational analysis was undertaken to assess the roles of these subdomains in substrate binding and cleavage. Surprisingly, the zinc finger is not required for DNA binding or catalysis. Rather, the zinc finger is a component of the linker and directs the catalytic domain to cleave the homing site at a fixed distance from the intron insertion site. When the cleavage site (CS) is shifted outside a given range, wild-type I-TevI defaults to the fixed distance, whereas zinc-finger mutants have lost the distance determinant and search out the displaced cleavage sequences. Although counterintuitive, a protein containing a 19-aa deletion of the zinc finger can extend further than can wild-type I-TevI to cleave a distant CS sequence, and a Cys-to-Ala mutant of the ligands for zinc, nominally a longer protein, can retract to cleave at a closer CS sequence. Models are presented for the novel function of the zinc finger, as a molecular constraint, whereby intramolecular protein–protein interactions position the catalytic domain by “catalytic clamp” and/or “linker-organizer” mechanisms.

INTERNAL {gamma}{gamma} OPACITY IN ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEI AND THE CONSEQUENCES FOR THE TeV OBSERVATIONS OF M87 AND Cen A  

SciTech Connect

Low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (LLAGNs) possess the characteristic features of more luminous active galactic nuclei (AGNs) but exhibit a much lower nuclear H{alpha} luminosity (L{sub H{alpha}} < 10{sup 40} erg s{sup -1}) than their more luminous counterparts. M87 (NGC 4486) and Centaurus A (NGC 5128, Cen A) are well studied nearby LLAGNs. As an additional feature they show {gamma} radiation up to TeV (10{sup 12} eV) energies, but the origin of this radiation has not been resolved. The coincident observation of a radio and TeV flare in M87 suggests that the TeV radiation is produced within around 50-100 gravitational radii of the central supermassive black hole, depending on the assumed value of the mass of the black hole. Strong radiation fields can be produced in the central region of an (LL)AGN, e.g., by the accretion flow around the black hole, the jet plasma, or stars closely orbiting the black hole. These radiation fields can lead to the absorption of emitted TeV photons, and, in fact, high optical depths of such fields can make TeV detection from inner regions impossible. In this paper, we consider the accretion flow around the black hole as the most prominent source for such a radiation field and we calculate accordingly the probability for absorption of TeV photons produced near the black holes in M87 and CenA assuming a low-luminosity Shakura-Sunyaev disk (SSD). We find that the results are very different between the two LLAGNs. While the inner region of M87 is transparent for TeV radiation up to {approx}20 TeV within the allowed parameter range, the optical depth in Cen A is >>1, leading to an absorption of TeV photons that might be produced near the central black hole. These results imply either that the TeV {gamma} production sites and processes are different for both sources or that LLAGN black holes do not accrete (at least only) in the form of a low-luminosity SSD.

The Most Sensitive Survey of the TeV Sky  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Milagro is a unique, large field of view ( ˜ 2 sr), TeV gamma-ray observatory located near Los Alamos, NM operating continuously to survey the Northern Hemisphere sky. Approximately 3 years of Milagro data have been searched for evidence of TeV point sources, and we detect the known sources of Mrk 421 and the Crab nebula and place 95% confidence upper limits of 275 to 600 mCrab (4.8-10.5× 10-12 cm-2 s-1) above 1 TeV for source declinations between +5 degrees and +70 degrees. We have also searched for extended sources, such as supernova remnants and galaxy clusters, and detect significant TeV gamma-ray emission from the Galactic plane in the direction of the inner Galaxy. The large aperture and duty cycle of Milagro also allow us to uniquely search for prompt TeV emission from gamma-ray bursts. These results emphasize the utility of a large field of view instrument to survey the TeV sky. Milagro has recently been upgraded to improve its sensitivity by a factor of ˜ 2 and plans are being made for HAWC, a larger version of Milagro which would be 20 times more sensitive and capable of detecting the Crab nebula in a single transit.

Improved solubility of TEV protease by directed evolution.  

PubMed

The efficiency and high specificity of tobacco etch virus (TEV) protease has made it widely used for cleavage of recombinant fusion proteins. However, the production of TEV protease in E. coli is hampered by low solubility. We have subjected the gene encoding TEV protease to directed evolution to improve the yield of soluble protein. Libraries of mutated genes obtained by error-prone PCR and gene shuffling were introduced into the Gateway cloning system for facilitated transfer between vectors for screening, purification, or other applications. Fluorescence based in vivo solubility screening was carried out by cloning the libraries into a plasmid encoding a C-terminal GFP fusion. Mutant genes giving rise to high GFP fluorescence intensity indicating high levels of soluble TEV-GFP were subsequently transferred to a vector providing a C-terminal histidine tag for expression, purification, and activity tests of mutated TEV. We identified a mutant, TEV(SH), in which three amino acid substitutions result in a five-fold increase in the yield of purified protease with retained activity. PMID:16150509

Analytical representation for pp elastic scattering at 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A precise analysis is performed of the recent pp elastic data at 7 TeV in terms of its real and imaginary amplitudes, that are fully disentangled, consistently with dispersion relations for amplitudes and for slopes. Real and imaginary slopes BR and BI, treated as independent quantities, influence the whole t-range and the determination of the total cross section ?. The treatment includes extension to the universal perturbative tail at large |t|. Consistency is obtained in the values of ?, ratio ?, BR and BI determined in forward and full-t approaches.

Measurement of the inclusive jet cross section in pp collisions at ?s = 7 TeV.  

PubMed

The inclusive jet cross section is measured in pp collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider using the CMS experiment. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 34 pb(-1). The measurement is made for jet transverse momenta in the range 18-1100 GeV and for absolute values of rapidity less than 3. The measured cross section extends to the highest values of jet p(T) ever observed and, within the experimental and theoretical uncertainties, is generally in agreement with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD predictions.

VERITAS OBSERVATIONS OF THE TeV BINARY LS I +61{sup 0} 303 DURING 2008-2010  

SciTech Connect

We present the results of observations of the TeV binary LS I +61{sup 0} 303 with the VERITAS telescope array between 2008 and 2010, at energies above 300 GeV. In the past, both ground-based gamma-ray telescopes VERITAS and MAGIC have reported detections of TeV emission near the apastron phases of the binary orbit. The observations presented here show no strong evidence for TeV emission during these orbital phases; however, during observations taken in late 2010, significant emission was detected from the source close to the phase of superior conjunction (much closer to periastron passage) at a 5.6 standard deviation (5.6{sigma}) post-trials significance. In total, between 2008 October and 2010 December a total exposure of 64.5 hr was accumulated with VERITAS on LS I +61{sup 0} 303, resulting in an excess at the 3.3{sigma} significance level for constant emission over the entire integrated data set. The flux upper limits derived for emission during the previously reliably active TeV phases (i.e., close to apastron) are less than 5% of the Crab Nebula flux in the same energy range. This result stands in apparent contrast to previous observations by both MAGIC and VERITAS which detected the source during these phases at 10% of the Crab Nebula flux. During the two year span of observations, a large amount of X-ray data were also accrued on LS I +61{sup 0} 303 by the Swift X-ray Telescope and the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer Proportional Counter Array. We find no evidence for a correlation between emission in the X-ray and TeV regimes during 20 directly overlapping observations. We also comment on data obtained contemporaneously by the Fermi Large Area Telescope.

OBSERVATION OF THE TeV GAMMA-RAY SOURCE MGRO J1908+06 WITH ARGO-YBJ  

SciTech Connect

The extended gamma-ray source MGRO J1908+06, discovered by the Milagro air shower detector in 2007, has been observed for {approx}4 years by the ARGO-YBJ experiment at TeV energies, with a statistical significance of 6.2 standard deviations. The peak of the signal is found at a position consistent with the pulsar PSR J1907+0602. Parameterizing the source shape with a two-dimensional Gauss function, we estimate an extension of {sigma}{sub ext} = 0.{sup 0}49 {+-} 0.{sup 0}22, which is consistent with a previous measurement by the Cherenkov Array H.E.S.S. The observed energy spectrum is dN/dE = 6.1 {+-} 1.4 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup -13} (E/4 TeV){sup -2.54{+-}0.36} photons cm{sup -2} s{sup -1} TeV{sup -1}, in the energy range of {approx}1-20 TeV. The measured gamma-ray flux is consistent with the results of the Milagro detector, but is {approx}2-3 times larger than the flux previously derived by H.E.S.S. at energies of a few TeV. The continuity of the Milagro and ARGO-YBJ observations and the stable excess rate observed by ARGO-YBJ and recorded in four years of data support the identification of MGRO J1908+06 as the steady powerful TeV pulsar wind nebula of PSR J1907+0602, with an integrated luminosity over 1 TeV {approx} 1.8 times the luminosity of the Crab Nebula.

Measurement of the normalized Z \\/ ? ? ? ? + ? ? transverse momentum distribution in p p Ż collisions at s = 1.96 TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

We present a new measurement of the Z\\/?? transverse momentum distribution in the range 0–330 GeV, in proton–antiproton collisions at s=1.96 TeV. The measurement uses 0.97 fb?1 of integrated luminosity recorded by the D0 experiment and is the first using the Z\\/????+??+X channel at this center-of-mass energy. This is also the first measurement of the Z\\/?? transverse momentum distribution that

Microsoft Academic Search

Very high-energy gamma rays emitted by the supernova 1987A were searched for at the Black Birch Range in New Zealand during December 1987 and January 1988. Data obtained in 42 hours of observation time give an upper bound on the flux of 6.1×10-12cm-2s-1 for gamma rays with energies above 3 TeV. Data obtained on 14 and 15 January are found

Dilepton signal of a type-II seesaw model at CERN LHC: Reveals a TeV scale B-L symmetry  

SciTech Connect

We explore the discovery potential of doubly charged Higgs bosons ({xi}{sup {+-}{+-}}) at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). For moderate values of the coupling constants in the original Type-II seesaw model, these doubly charged Higgs bosons are not accessible at any present or near future collider experiments. In a gauged B-L symmetric model we introduce two triplet scalars to execute a variant of type-II seesaw at the TeV scale. This leads to a clear like-sign dilepton signal in the decay mode of {xi}{sup {+-}{+-}} for a small vacuum expectation value ((less-or-similar sign)10{sup 5} eV) of the triplet scalar {xi}=({xi}{sup ++},{xi}{sup +},{xi}{sup 0}) of mass (less-or-similar sign)1 TeV. To be specific, for a mass range of 200-1000 GeV of {xi}{sup {+-}{+-},} the like-sign dilepton signal can be detected at CERN LHC at a center of mass energy 14 TeV with an integrated luminosity, say, (greater-or-similar sign)30 fb{sup -1}. The same analysis is also pursued with center of mass energies 7 TeV and 10 TeV as well. We also comment on the decay mode of singly charged scalars and the neutral B-L gauge boson in this model.

Measurement of the atmospheric muon charge ratio at TeV energies with the MINOS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 5.4 kton MINOS far detector has been taking charge-separated cosmic ray muon data since the beginning of August, 2003 at a depth of 2070 m.w.e. in the Soudan Underground Laboratory, Minnesota, USA. The data with both forward and reversed magnetic field running configurations were combined to minimize systematic errors in the determination of the underground muon charge ratio. When averaged, two independent analyses find the charge ratio underground to be N?+/N?-=1.374ą0.004(stat)-0.010+0.012(sys). Using the map of the Soudan rock overburden, the muon momenta as measured underground were projected to the corresponding values at the surface in the energy range 1 7 TeV. Within this range of energies at the surface, the MINOS data are consistent with the charge ratio being energy independent at the 2 standard deviation level. When the MINOS results are compared with measurements at lower energies, a clear rise in the charge ratio in the energy range 0.3 1.0 TeV is apparent. A qualitative model shows that the rise is consistent with an increasing contribution of kaon decays to the muon charge ratio.

Measurement of the atmospheric muon charge ratio at TeV energies with MINOS  

SciTech Connect

The 5.4 kton MINOS far detector has been taking charge-separated cosmic ray muon data since the beginning of August, 2003 at a depth of 2070 m.w.e. in the Soudan Underground Laboratory, Minnesota, USA. The data with both forward and reversed magnetic field running configurations were combined to minimize systematic errors in the determination of the underground muon charge ratio. When averaged, two independent analyses find the charge ratio underground to be N{sub {mu}}+/N{sub {mu}}-=1.374{+-}0.004(stat)-0.010{sup +0.012}(sys). Using the map of the Soudan rock overburden, the muon momenta as measured underground were projected to the corresponding values at the surface in the energy range 1-7 TeV. Within this range of energies at the surface, the MINOS data are consistent with the charge ratio being energy independent at the 2 standard deviation level. When the MINOS results are compared with measurements at lower energies, a clear rise in the charge ratio in the energy range 0.3-1.0 TeV is apparent. A qualitative model shows that the rise is consistent with an increasing contribution of kaon decays to the muon charge ratio.

Suppression of high transverse momentum D mesons in central Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt{{{s_{NN}}}}=2.76TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The production of the prompt charm mesons D0, D+, D*+, and their antiparticles, was measured with the ALICE detector in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC, at a centre-of-mass energy sqrt{{{s_{NN}}}}=2.76TeV per nucleon-nucleon collision. The p t-differential production yields in the range 2 < p t < 16 GeV/ c at central rapidity, | y| < 0.5, were used to calculate the nuclear modification factor R AA with respect to a proton-proton reference obtained from the cross section measured at sqrt{s}=7TeV and scaled to sqrt{s}=2.76TeV . For the three meson species, R AA shows a suppression by a factor 3-4, for transverse momenta larger than 5 GeV/ c in the 20% most central collisions. The suppression is reduced for peripheral collisions.

Measurement of dijet angular distributions at sqrt{s}=1.96TeV and searches for quark compositeness and extra spatial dimensions  

SciTech Connect

We present the first measurement of dijet angular distributions in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The measurement is based on a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.7 fb{sup -1} collected with the D0 detector. Dijet angular distributions have been measured over a range of dijet masses, from 0.25 TeV to above 1.1 TeV. The data are in good agreement with the predictions of perturbative QCD and are used to constrain new physics models including quark compositeness, large extra dimensions, and TeV{sup -1} scale extra dimensions. For all models considered, we set the most stringent direct limits to date.

Measurement of Dijet Angular Distributions and Search for Quark Compositeness in pp Collisions at {radical}(s)=7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

Dijet angular distributions are measured over a wide range of dijet invariant masses in pp collisions at {radical}(s)=7 TeV, at the CERN LHC. The event sample, recorded with the CMS detector, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb{sup -1}. The data are found to be in good agreement with the predictions of perturbative QCD, and yield no evidence of quark compositeness. With a modified frequentist approach, a lower limit on the contact interaction scale for left-handed quarks of {Lambda}{sup +}=5.6 TeV ({Lambda}{sup -}=6.7 TeV) for destructive (constructive) interference is obtained at the 95% confidence level.

BL Lac candidates for TeV observations (Massaro+, 2013)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

BL Lac objects are the most numerous class of extragalactic TeV-detected sources. One of the biggest difficulties in investigating their TeV emission is due to their limited number, since only 47 BL Lac objects are known to be TeV emitters. In this paper, we propose new criteria to select TeV BL Lac candidates based on infrared and X-ray observations. We apply our selection criteria to the BL Lac objects listed in the ROMA-BZCAT catalog (Cat. J/A+A/495/691), thereby identifying 41 potential TeV emitters. We then perform a search over a more extended sample combining the ROSAT bright source catalog (Cat. IX/10) and the WISE all-sky survey (Cat. II/311), revealing 54 additional candidates for TeV observations. Our investigation also led to a tentative classification of 16 unidentified X-ray sources as BL Lac candidates. This analysis provides new interesting BL Lac targets for future observations with ground-based Cherenkov telescopes. (3 data files).

Measurement of zero degree single photon energy spectra for s = 7 TeV proton-proton collisions at LHC  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In early 2010, the Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment measured very forward neutral particle spectra in LHC proton-proton collisions. From a limited data set taken under the best beam conditions (low beam-gas background and low occurrence of pile-up events), the single photon spectra at s = 7 TeV and pseudo-rapidity ( ? ) ranges from 8.81 to 8.99 and from 10.94 to infinity were obtained for the first time and are reported in this Letter. The spectra from two independent LHCf detectors are consistent with one another and serve as a cross check of the data. The photon spectra are also compared with the predictions of several hadron interaction models that are used extensively for modeling ultra-high energy cosmic-ray showers. Despite conservative estimates for the systematic errors, none of the models agree perfectly with the measurements. A notable difference is found between the data and the DPMJET 3.04 and PYTHIA 8.145 hadron interaction models above 2 TeV where the models predict higher photon yield than the data. The QGSJET II-03 model predicts overall lower photon yield than the data, especially above 2 TeV in the rapidity range 8.81 < ? < 8.99 .

Search for tb Resonances in Proton-Proton Collisions at s=7TeV with the ATLAS Detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This Letter presents a search for tb resonances in 1.04fb-1 of LHC proton-proton collision data collected by the ATLAS detector at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. Events with a lepton, missing transverse momentum, and two jets are selected and the invariant mass of the corresponding final state is reconstructed. The search exploits the shape of the tb invariant mass distribution compared to the expected standard model backgrounds. The model of a right-handed WR' with standard model-like couplings is chosen as the benchmark model for this search. No statistically significant excess of events is observed in the data, and upper limits on the cross section times the branching ratio of WR' resonances at 95% C.L. lie in the range of 6.1-1.0 pb for WR' masses ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 TeV. These limits are translated into a lower bound on the allowed right-handed WR' mass, giving mWR'>1.13TeV at 95% C.L.

Search for tb resonances in proton-proton collisions at ?s=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector.  

PubMed

This Letter presents a search for tb resonances in 1.04 fb(-1) of LHC proton-proton collision data collected by the ATLAS detector at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. Events with a lepton, missing transverse momentum, and two jets are selected and the invariant mass of the corresponding final state is reconstructed. The search exploits the shape of the tb invariant mass distribution compared to the expected standard model backgrounds. The model of a right-handed W(R)' with standard model-like couplings is chosen as the benchmark model for this search. No statistically significant excess of events is observed in the data, and upper limits on the cross section times the branching ratio of W(R)' resonances at 95% C.L. lie in the range of 6.1-1.0 pb for W(R)' masses ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 TeV. These limits are translated into a lower bound on the allowed right-handed W(R)' mass, giving m(W(R)'))>1.13 TeV at 95% C.L. PMID:23002739

Phenomenology of TeV little string theory from holography.  

PubMed

We study the graviton phenomenology of TeV little string theory by exploiting its holographic gravity dual five-dimensional theory. This dual corresponds to a linear dilaton background with a large bulk that constrains the standard model fields on the boundary of space. The linear dilaton geometry produces a unique Kaluza-Klein graviton spectrum that exhibits a ~TeV mass gap followed by a near continuum of narrow resonances that are separated from each other by only ~30 GeV. Resonant production of these particles at the LHC is the signature of this framework that distinguishes it from large extra dimensions, where the Kaluza-Klein states are almost a continuum with no mass gap, and warped models, where the states are separated by a TeV.

RXTE too for GRB Identified by MILAGRO Tev Observatory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

RXTE has observed several gamma-ray burst (GRB) x-ray afterglows. This proposal is to observe x-ray afterglows from "TeV selected" GRBs identified by Milagro, a new TeV gamma-ray observatory with a large field of view and high duty factor. Milagrito, the prototype of Milagro, observed one such burst in the 15 months of observation. The RXTE detection of a "TeV selected" GRB would confirm that this type of GRB is similar to the "MeV selected" GRBs. Also, RXTE can improve on the Milagro localization of ~1/2 degree that is needed for other wavelength afterglow observations. While EGRET has detected GeV gamma rays in several bright GRBs, even higher energy emission is predicted. An RXTE detection would place these bursts in the needed multiwavelength prespective.

Evidence for TeV emission from GRB 970417a  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Milagrito, a detector sensitive to ?-rays at TeV energies, monitored the northern sky during the period February 1997 through May 1998. With a large field of view and high duty cycle, this instrument was used to perform a search for TeV counterparts to ?-ray bursts. BATSE detected 54 GRBs within the field of view of Milagrito during this period. This paper describes the results of an analysis to search for TeV emission correlated with BATSE detected bursts. Milagrito detected an excess of events coincident both spatially and temporally with GRB 970417a, with chance probability 2.8×10-5 within the BATSE error radius. No other significant correlations were detected. Since 54 bursts were examined, the chance probability of observing an excess with at least this significance in any of these bursts is 1.5×10-3. .

A 3 TeV Muon Collider Lattice Design  

SciTech Connect

A new lattice for 3 TeV c.o.m. energy with {beta}* = 5mm was developed which follows the basic concept of the earlier 1.5 TeV design but uses quad triplets for the final focus in order to keep the maximum magnet strength and aperture close to those in 1.5 TeV case. Another difference is employment of combined-function magnets with the goal to lower heat deposition in magnet cold mass and to eliminate bending field free regions which produce 'hot spots' of neutrino radiation that can be an issue at higher energy. The proposed lattice is shown to satisfy the requirements on luminosity, dynamic aperture and momentum acceptance.

STUDY OF FOUR YOUNG TeV PULSAR WIND NEBULAE WITH A SPECTRAL EVOLUTION MODEL  

SciTech Connect

We study four young pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) detected in TeV {gamma}-rays, G21.5-0.9, G54.1+0.3, Kes 75, and G0.9+0.1, using the spectral evolution model developed and applied to the Crab Nebula in our previous work. We model the evolution of the magnetic field and the particle distribution function inside a uniformly expanding PWN considering a time-dependent injection from the pulsar and radiative and adiabatic losses. Considering uncertainties in the interstellar radiation field (ISRF) and their distance, we study two cases for each PWN. Because TeV PWNe have a large TeV {gamma}-ray to X-ray flux ratio, the magnetic energy of the PWNe accounts for only a small fraction of the total energy injected (typically a few Multiplication-Sign 10{sup -3}). The {gamma}-ray emission is dominated by inverse Compton scattering off the infrared photons of the ISRF. A broken power-law distribution function for the injected particles reproduces the observed spectrum well, except for G0.9+0.1. For G0.9+0.1, we do not need a low-energy counterpart because adiabatic losses alone are enough to reproduce the radio observations. High-energy power-law indices at injection are similar (2.5-2.6), while low-energy power-law indices range from 1.0 to 1.6. The lower limit of the particle injection rate indicates that the pair multiplicity is larger than 10{sup 4}. The corresponding upper limit of the bulk Lorentz factor of the pulsar winds is close to the break energy of the broken power-law injection, except for Kes 75. The initial rotational energy and the magnetic energy of the pulsars seem anticorrelated, although the statistics are poor.

B factory via conversion of 1 TeV electron beams into 1 TeV photon beams  

SciTech Connect

We derive formulae which describe the interaction of laser beams with electron beams. Specializing to the case of 1 TeV electron beams from the future generation of electron linear accelerators, we calculate the production rate of backscattered 1 TeV photons, and using these photons, we show that it is possible to organize the photoproduction of beauty particles so as to measure 10/sup 9/b/bar b/ pairs per year. This should be adequate to study rare decays and CP violation in B meson decay. 9 refs., 1 fig.

TeV Astrophysics with the MILAGRO and Hawc Observatories  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ground-based gamma-ray astronomy has historically implemented two dramatically different techniques. One method employs Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope(s) (IACT) that detect the Cherenkov light generated in the atmosphere by extensive air showers. The other method employs particle detectors that directly detect the particles that reach ground level — known as Extensive Air Shower (EAS) arrays. Until recently, the IACT method had been the only technique to yield solid detections of TeV gamma-ray sources. Utilizing water Chernkov technology, Milagro, was the first EAS array to discover new gamma-ray sources and demonstrated the power of and need for an all-sky high duty cycle instrument in the TeV energy regime. The transient nature of many TeV sources, the enormous number of potential sources, and the existence of TeV sources that encompass large angular areas all point to the need for an all-sky, high duty-factor instrument with even greater sensitivity than Milagro. The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Observatory will be over an order of magnitude more sensitive than Milagro. In this paper we will discuss the results from Milagro and the design of the HAWC instrument and its experimental sensitivity.

Features of the absorption of 2-to 40-TeV cosmic-ray hadrons in lead  

SciTech Connect

For the first time, experimental data on 2-to 40-TeV hadronic cascades recorded by a lead ionization calorimeter at the Tien-Shan mountain station of the Lebedev Institute of Physics (Moscow) are compared with the results of a present-day simulation based on the GEANT 3.21 code and performed with allowance for the detection procedure. The conclusion that along-flying component appears in high-energy hadronic cascades was drawn previously on the basis of these data. Some special features of the procedure for recording TeV-range hadrons in the calorimeter are considered. It is shown that the averaged hadronic cascades and various features of single cascades having energies below 10 TeV are simulated adequately by using the QGSJET + FLUKA generators of nuclear interactions, but that they are not described by using the GHEISHA generator at lower energies. Some features of the experimentally observed cascades could not be described for cascade energies above 10 TeV.

Measurement of inclusive jet and dijet production in pp collisions at s=7TeV using the ATLAS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Inclusive jet and dijet cross sections have been measured in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The cross sections were measured using jets clustered with the anti-kt algorithm with parameters R=0.4 and R=0.6. These measurements are based on the 2010 data sample, consisting of a total integrated luminosity of 37pb-1. Inclusive jet double-differential cross sections are presented as a function of jet transverse momentum, in bins of jet rapidity. Dijet double-differential cross sections are studied as a function of the dijet invariant mass, in bins of half the rapidity separation of the two leading jets. The measurements are performed in the jet rapidity range |y|<4.4, covering jet transverse momenta from 20 GeV to 1.5 TeV and dijet invariant masses from 70 GeV to 5 TeV. The data are compared to expectations based on next-to-leading-order QCD calculations corrected for nonperturbative effects, as well as to next-to-leading-order Monte Carlo predictions. In addition to a test of the theory in a new kinematic regime, the data also provide sensitivity to parton distribution functions in a region where they are currently not well-constrained.

Search for leptonic decays of W' bosons in pp collisions at sqrt {s} = {7} TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for a new heavy gauge boson W' decaying to an electron or muon, plus a low mass neutrino, is presented. This study uses data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb-1, collected using the CMS detector in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC. Events containing a single electron or muon and missing transverse momentum are analyzed. No significant excess of events above the standard model expectation is found in the transverse mass distribution of the lepton-neutrino system, and upper limits for cross sections above different transverse mass thresholds are presented. Mass exclusion limits at 95% CL for a range of W' models are determined, including a limit of 2.5 TeV for right-handed W' bosons with standard-model-like couplings and limits of 2.43-2.63 TeV for left-handed W' bosons, taking into account their interference with the standard model W boson. Exclusion limits have also been set on Kaluza-Klein WKK states in the framework of split universal extra dimensions.

Cross sections for elastic electron scattering by tetramethylsilane in the intermediate-energy range  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Organosilicon compounds are of current interest due to the numerous applications of these species in industries. Some of these applications require the knowledge of electron collision cross sections, which are scarce for such compounds. In this work, we report absolute values of differential, integral, and momentum-transfer cross sections for elastic electron scattering by tetramethylsilane (TMS) measured in the 100-1000 eV energy range. The relative-flow technique is used to normalize our data. In addition, the independent-atom-model (IAM) and the additivity rule (AR), widely used to model electron collisions with light hydrocarbons, are also applied for e--TMS interaction. The comparison of our measured results of cross sections and the calculated data shows good agreement, particularly near the higher-end of incident energies.

Correlated event excesses in LHC SUSY searches at 7 & 8 TeV: new physics or conspiring noise?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We examine the ATLAS and CMS 7 & 8 TeV multijet supersymmetry (SUSY) searches requiring the incidence of a single lepton in the framework of the supersymmetric grand unified model No-Scale Flipped SU(5) with extra vector-like flippon multiplets derived from F-Theory, or for short. Investigated are five multijet + lepton SUSY searches: 4.7 fb-1 ATLAS 7 TeV gluino and light stop searches, as well as 13 fb-1 ATLAS and 9.7 fb-1 CMS 8 TeV light stop searches. Most significantly, all five leptonic SUSY searches represent statistically independent data samples. Findings show that all five orthogonal sets of leptonic LHC observations give a lower bound to the gaugino mass scale at M 1/2?680 GeV, with all the current best fits correlating within a narrow region. Furthermore, eight statistically independent LHC SUSY search regions (leptonic + all-hadronic) accessible to the No-Scale model space intersect with all the currently operating beyond the Standard Model experiments within the range of M 1/2=680-850 GeV, with the upper bound established by the lower experimental limit of the anomalous magnetic moment (g ? -2)/2 of the muon. We emphasize that this region of the model space may not be fully probed by leptonic SUSY searches at the LHC until the 13 TeV LHC energizes in 2015. Additionally, we describe an efficient technique for the effective statistical disentanglement of searches sensitive to mutually overlapping event spaces.

Search for TeV Gamma Rays from Supernova Remnants Cas A and Tycho with the HEGRA Stereoscopic System of Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The HEGRA collaboration operates a system of 5 Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes for gamma-ray astronomy in the energy range above 500 GeV. Based on the method of stereoscopic air shower observations the system achieves an energy flux sensitivity at 1 TeV of approximately 10-12 ergs/cm2 sec for 100 hour of observation time as well as angular and energy resolutions of 0.1 degree and <20%, respectively. In this contribution we summarize and discuss recent results concerning the observations of Supernova Remnants (SNRs). Very deep observations of the SNR Cassiopeia A (232 h) revealed evidence at the 5 ? confidence level that the source emits TeV gamma-rays, indicating that the source accelerates particles up to energies of at least several TeV. Another important result in this field is the non-detection of TeV gamma-rays from Tycho. The flux upper limit based on 65 h observation time seriously constrains the parameter space of diffusive shock acceleration models of cosmic rays.

The temporal characteristics of the TeV gamma-radiation from MKN 501 in 1997. I. Data from the stereoscopic imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescope system of HEGRA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

During 1997, the BL Lac Object Mkn 501 was the brightest known object in the TeV gamma-ray sky. The emission was characterized by dramatic variations in intensity with a mean flux exceeding by a factor of three the steady gamma-ray flux of the Crab Nebula. The stereoscopic HEGRA system of 4 Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes, with an energy threshold of about 500 GeV, an angular resolution of 0.1(deg) , an energy resolution of 20%, and a flux sensitivity nu F_nu at 1 TeV of 10(-11) ergs/cm(2) sec =~ 1/4 Crab for 1 hour of observation time (S/sqrt {B}=5sigma ), has been used in 1997 for a comprehensive study of the spectral and temporal characteristics of the TeV gamma-ray emission from Mkn 501 on time scales of several hours or less. In this paper (Part I) the gamma-ray fluxes and spectra on a diurnal basis during the period March to October 1997 are presented. Furthermore, the correlation of the TeV emission with the flux measured by the RXTE All Sky Monitor in the energy range from 2 to 12 keV are studied. Finally the implications of these results on the physics of relativistic jets in BL Lac objects are briefly discussed. The companion paper (Part II) describes the results from the stand alone telescopes CT1 and CT2.

Measurement of electrons from beauty hadron decays in pp collisions at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The production cross section of electrons from semileptonic decays of beauty hadrons was measured at mid-rapidity (|y|<0.8) in the transverse momentum range 1TeV using an integrated luminosity of 2.2 nb. Electrons from beauty hadron decays were selected based on the displacement of the decay vertex from the collision vertex. A perturbative QCD calculation agrees with the measurement within uncertainties. The data were extrapolated to the full phase space to determine the total cross section for the production of beauty quark-antiquark pairs.

Search for Three-Jet Resonances in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for three-jet hadronic resonance production in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV has been conducted by the CMS Collaboration at the LHC, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35pb-1. Events with high jet multiplicity and a large scalar sum of jet transverse momenta are analyzed using a signature-based approach. The number of expected standard model background events is found to be in good agreement with the observed events. Limits on the cross section times branching ratio are set in a model of gluino pair production with an R-parity-violating decay to three quarks, and the data rule out such particles within the mass range of 200 to 280GeV/c2.

Search for three-jet resonances in pp collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results are reported from a search for the production of three-jet resonances in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy s=7 TeV. The study uses the data sample collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb. Events with high jet multiplicity and a large scalar sum of jet transverse momenta are analyzed for the presence of resonances in the three-jet invariant mass spectrum. No evidence for a narrow resonance is found in the data, and limits are set on the cross section for gluino pair production in an R-parity-violating supersymmetry model, for gluino masses greater than 280 GeV. Assuming a branching fraction for gluino decay into three jets of 100%, gluino masses below 460 GeV are excluded at 95% confidence level. These results significantly extend the range of previous limits.

Search for ? rays from supernova 1987A at energies greater than 100 TeV.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The authors searched for ultrahigh-energy ? rays emitted by Supernova 1987A with a new cosmic-ray facility installed at the Black Birch Range in New Zealand. The observations from 13 October to 3 December 1987 suggest no clear clustering of events around the direction of the supernova. The authors conclude that an upper limit on the flux of ? rays of energies greater than 100 TeV is 1.1×10-12cm-2s-1 (95% confidence limit) for a differential spectral index ? = 2.0 and source distance d = 50 kpc. This value gives an upper bound on the ?-ray luminosity of the supernova of 5.5×1038erg s-1 for 1014 - 1017eV.

Search for gamma rays from Supernova 1987A at energies greater than 100 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ultrahigh-energy gamma rays emitted by Supernova 1987A are searched for with a new cosmic-ray facility installed at the Black Birch Range in New Zealand. The observations from October 13 to December 3, 1987 suggest no clear clustering of events around the direction of the supernova. It is concluded that an upper limit on the flux of gamma rays of energies greater than 100 TeV is 1.1 x 10 to the -12th/sq cm per sec (95 percent confidence limit) for a differential spectral index a = 2.0 and source distance d = 50 kpc. This value gives an upper bound on the gamma-ray luminosity of the supernova of 5.5 x 10 to the 38th erg/sec for 10 to the 14th to 10 to the 17th eV.

TeV scale mirage mediation in NMSSM  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model. We consider soft supersymmetry breaking parameters, which are induced by the mirage mediation mechanism of supersymmetry breaking. We concentrate on the mirage mediation, where the so-called mirage scale is the TeV scale. In this scenario, we can realize the up-type Higgs soft mass of {O}( {200} ) GeV, while other masses such as gaugino masses and stop masses are heavy such as 1 TeV or more. Cancellation between the effective ?-term and the down-type Higgs soft mass ameliorates the fine-tuning in the electroweak symmetry breaking even for ? ={O}( {500} ) GeV. The mixingbetween the doublet and singlet Higgsbosons issuppressed by ( ?/?) tan-1 ?. Then the lightest doublet Higgs mass naturally reaches 125 GeV lifted by the new quartic coupling. The higgsino and singlino are light and their linear combination is the lightest superparticle.

TeV scale dark matter and electroweak radiative corrections  

SciTech Connect

Recent anomalies in cosmic rays data, namely, from the PAMELA Collaboration, can be interpreted in terms of TeV scale decaying/annihilating dark matter. We analyze the impact of radiative corrections coming from the electroweak sector of the standard model on the spectrum of the final products at the interaction point. As an example, we consider virtual one loop corrections and real gauge bosons emission in the case of a very heavy vector boson annihilating into fermions. We find electroweak corrections that are relevant, but not as big as sometimes found in the literature; we relate this mismatch to the issue of gauge invariance. At scales much higher than the symmetry breaking scale, one loop electroweak effects are so big that eventually higher orders/resummations have to be considered: we advocate for the inclusion of these effects in parton shower Monte Carlo models aiming at the description of TeV scale physics.

Evidence for TEV Emission from GRB 970417A  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Milagrito, a detector sensitive to very high energy gamma rays, monitored the northern sky from 1997 February through 1998 May. With a large field of view and a high duty cycle, this instrument was well suited to perform a search for TeV gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). We report on a search made for TeV counterparts to GRBs observed by BATSE. BATSE detected 54 GRBs within the field of view of Milagrito during this period. An excess of events coincident in time and space with one of these bursts, GRB 970417a, was observed by Milagrito. The excess has a chance probability of 2.8×10-5 of being a fluctuation of the background. The probability for observing an excess at least this large from any of the 54 bursts is 1.5×10-3. No significant correlations were detected from the other bursts.

Black Hole Radiance, Short Distances, and TeV Gravity  

SciTech Connect

Using a derivation of black hole radiance in terms of two-point functions one can provide a quantitative estimate of the contribution of short distances to the spectrum. Thermality is preserved for black holes with {kappa}l{sub P}<<1. However, deviations from the Planckian spectrum can be found for mini black holes in TeV gravity scenarios, even before reaching the Planck phase.

Measurement of the Inclusive Jet Cross Section in pp Collisions at {radical}(s)=7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

The inclusive jet cross section is measured in pp collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider using the CMS experiment. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 34 pb{sup -1}. The measurement is made for jet transverse momenta in the range 18-1100 GeV and for absolute values of rapidity less than 3. The measured cross section extends to the highest values of jet p{sub T} ever observed and, within the experimental and theoretical uncertainties, is generally in agreement with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD predictions.

Measurement of the Drell-Yan cross section in pp collisions at sqrt {s} = 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Drell-Yan differential cross section is measured in pp collisions at sqrt {s} = 7 TeV, from a data sample collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb-1. The cross section measurement, normalized to the measured cross section in the Z region, is reported for both the dimuon and dielectron channels in the dilepton invariant mass range 15-600 GeV. The normalized cross section values are quoted both in the full phase space and within the detector acceptance. The effect of final state radiation is also identified. The results are found to agree with theoretical predictions.

Search for high-mass resonances decaying into ZZ in ppŻ collisions at s=1.96TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We search for high-mass resonances decaying into Z boson pairs using data corresponding to 6fb-1 collected by the CDF experiment in ppŻ collisions at s=1.96TeV. The search is performed in three distinct final states: ZZ??+?-?+?-, ZZ??+?-??, and ZZ??+?-jj. For a Randall-Sundrum graviton G*, the 95% CL upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio to ZZ, ?(ppŻ?G*?ZZ), vary between 0.26 pb and 0.045 pb in the mass range 300

Search for TeV counterparts of BATSE gamma ray bursts with the HEGRA air shower arrays  

SciTech Connect

Twenty nine gamma ray bursts recorded between 1993 and 1995 with the BATSE instrument were searched for an emission in the energy range above 13 TeV. The method used the data of the scintillator array and the wide angle Cherenkov counter array AIROBICC of the HEGRA experiment. As a novelty not only coincident emission but also short and long time emission in the hours before and after the BATSE detection were searched for. Weak evidence was found for coincident and for precursor short time emission.

Azimuthal Anisotropy in Charged Hadron Production in 2.76 TeV PbPb Collisions Measured by CMS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report on the CMS measurements of charged hadron anisotropic azimuthal distributions from PbPb collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 2.76 TeV per nucleon pair and their decomposition into a Fourier series up to the 6th coefficient. The results are presented as a function of transverse momentum, centrality and pseudorapidity and cover a broad kinematic range. These results can provide constraints on the theoretical description of the early dynamics in the hot and dense medium and its transport properties.

Measurement of the differential cross-section of B + meson production in pp collisions at TeV at ATLAS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The production cross-section of B + mesons is measured as a function of transverse momentum p T and rapidity y in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energy TeV, using 2.4 fb-1 of data recorded with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The differential production cross-sections, determined in the range 9 GeV < p T < 120 GeV and | y| < 2 .25, are compared to next-to-leading-order theoretical predictions.

The energy spectrum of atmospheric neutrinos between 2 and 200 TeV with the AMANDA-II detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The muon and anti-muon neutrino energy spectrum is determined from 2000-2003 AMANDA telescope data using regularised unfolding. This is the first measurement of atmospheric neutrinos in the energy range 2-200 TeV. The result is compared to different atmospheric neutrino models and it is compatible with the atmospheric neutrinos from pion and kaon decays. No significant contribution from charm hadron decays or extraterrestrial neutrinos is detected. The capabilities to improve the measurement of the neutrino spectrum with the successor experiment IceCube are discussed.

Search for TeV gamma rays from SN 1987A during December 1987 and January 1988  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Very high-energy ? rays emitted by the supernova 1987A were searched for at the Black Birch Range in New Zealand during December 1987 and January 1988. Data obtained in 42 hours of observation time give an upper bound on the flux of 6.1×10-12cm-2s-1 for ? rays with energies above 3 TeV. Data obtained on 14 and 15 January are found to have excess counts, above the background level, corresponding to a flux of (1.9ą0.5)×10-11cm-2s-1 and a total energy of ?1043ergs.

GeV Emission from TeV Blazars and Intergalactic Magnetic Fields  

Microsoft Academic Search

Several high-frequency peaked BL Lac objects such as Mrk 501 are strong TeV emitters. However, a significant fraction of the TeV gamma rays emitted are likely to be absorbed in interactions with the diffuse IR background, yielding electron-positron pairs. Hence, the observed TeV spectrum must be steeper than the intrinsic one. Using the recently derived intrinsic gamma-ray spectrum of Mrk

Search for particles decaying into a Z boson and a photon in p p Ż collisions at s = 1.96  TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

We present the results of a search for a new particle X produced in ppŻ collisions at s=1.96 TeV and subsequently decaying to Z?. The search uses 0.3 fb?1 of data collected with the DŘ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We set limits on the production cross section times the branching fraction ?(ppŻ?X)×B(X?Z?) that range from 0.4 to 3.5 pb

We present measurements of the inclusive production cross sections of the Upsilon(1S) bottomonium state in ppŻ collisions at &surd;(s)=1.96 TeV. Using the Upsilon(1S)-->mu+mu- decay mode for a data sample of 159ą10 pb-1 collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, we determine the differential cross sections as a function of the Upsilon(1S) transverse momentum for three ranges of

Measurement of the cross section for production of two isolated prompt photons in ppŻ collisions at &surd;s =1.8 TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

We present measurements from events with two isolated prompt photons in pŻp collisions at &surd;s =1.8 TeV. The differential cross section, measured as a function of transverse momentum (PT) of each photon, is about 3 times what next-to-leading-order QCD calculations predict. The cross section for photons with PT in the range 10-19 GeV is 86+\\/-27(stat)+32-23(syst) pb. We also study the

J/? Elliptic Flow in Pb-Pb Collisions at sNN=2.76TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report on the first measurement of inclusive J/? elliptic flow v2 in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. The measurement is performed with the ALICE detector in Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76TeV in the rapidity range 2.5range 0?pT<10GeV/c. For semicentral Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76TeV, an indication of nonzero v2 is observed with a largest measured value of v2=0.116ą0.046(stat)ą0.029(syst) for J/? in the transverse momentum range 2?pT<4GeV/c. The elliptic flow measurement complements the previously reported ALICE results on the inclusive J/? nuclear modification factor and favors the scenario of a significant fraction of J/? production from charm quarks in a deconfined partonic phase.

Hiding a Heavy Higgs Boson at the 7 TeV LHC  

SciTech Connect

A heavy Standard Model Higgs boson is not only disfavored by electroweak precision observables but is also excluded by direct searches at the 7 TeV LHC for a wide range of masses. Here, we examine scenarios where a heavy Higgs boson can be made consistent with both the indirect constraints and the direct null searches by adding only one new particle beyond the Standard Model. This new particle should be a weak multiplet in order to have additional contributions to the oblique parameters. If it is a color singlet, we find that a heavy Higgs with an intermediate mass of 200-300 GeV can decay into the new states, suppressing the branching ratios for the standard model modes, and thus hiding a heavy Higgs at the LHC. If the new particle is also charged under QCD, the Higgs production cross section from gluon fusion can be reduced significantly due to the new colored particle one-loop contribution. Current collider constraints on the new particles allow for viable parameter space to exist in order to hide a heavy Higgs boson. We categorize the general signatures of these new particles, identify favored regions of their parameter space and point out that discovering or excluding them at the LHC can provide important indirect information for a heavy Higgs. Finally, for a very heavy Higgs boson, beyond the search limit at the 7 TeV LHC, we discuss three additional scenarios where models would be consistent with electroweak precision tests: including an additional vector-like fermion mixing with the top quark, adding another U(1) gauge boson and modifying triple-gauge boson couplings.

A novel method for high-level production of TEV protease by superfolder GFP tag.  

PubMed

Because of its stringent sequence specificity, tobacco etch virus (TEV) protease is widely used to remove fusion tags from recombinant proteins. Due to the poor solubility of TEV protease, many strategies have been employed to increase the expression level of this enzyme. In our work, we introduced a novel method to produce TEV protease by using visible superfolder green fluorescent protein (sfGFP) as the fusion tag. The soluble production and catalytic activity of six variants of sfGFP-TEV was examined, and then the best variant was selected for large-scale production. After purified by Ni-NTA affinity chromatography and Q anion exchange chromatography, the best variant of sfGFP-TEV fusion protease was obtained with purity of over 98% and yield of over 320 mg per liter culture. The sfGFP-TEV had a similar catalytic activity to that of the original TEV protease. Our research showed a novel method of large-scale production of visible and functional TEV protease for structural genomics research and other applications. PMID:20182554

Search for contact interactions and large extra dimensions in dilepton events from pp collisions at s=7TeV with the ATLAS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for nonresonant new phenomena, originating from either contact interactions or large extra spatial dimensions, has been carried out using events with two isolated electrons or muons. These events, produced at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at s=7TeV, were recorded by the ATLAS detector. The data sample, collected throughout 2011, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 4.9 and 5.0fb-1 in the e+e- and ?+?- channels, respectively. No significant deviations from the Standard Model expectation are observed. Using a Bayesian approach, 95% confidence level lower limits ranging from 9.0 to 13.9 TeV are placed on the energy scale of ??qq contact interactions in the left-left isoscalar model. Lower limits ranging from 2.4 to 3.9 TeV are also set on the string scale in large extra dimension models. After combining these limits with results from a similar search in the diphoton channel, slightly more stringent limits are obtained.

Search for Heavy Neutrinos and WR Bosons with Right-Handed Couplings in a Left-Right Symmetric Model in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results are presented from a search for heavy, right-handed muon neutrinos, N?, and right-handed WR bosons, which arise in the left-right symmetric extensions of the standard model. The analysis is based on a 5.0fb-1 sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No evidence is observed for an excess of events over the standard model expectation. For models with exact left-right symmetry, heavy right-handed neutrinos are excluded at 95% confidence level for a range of neutrino masses below the WR mass, dependent on the value of MWR. The excluded region in the two-dimensional (MWR, MN?) mass plane extends to MWR=2.5TeV.

Mapping the TeV PWN candidate source HESS J1857+026 down to Fermi-LAT energies with the MAGIC telescopes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

HESS J1857+026 is an extended TeV gamma-ray source that was discovered by H.E.S.S. close to the Galactic plane. Given its spatial coincidence with the young energetic pulsar PSR J1856+0245, the source represents a pulsar wind nebula (PWN) candidate. The source has now also been detected and analyzed using Fermi-LAT data. HESS J1857+026 was observed by MAGIC in 2010, yielding 29 hours of good quality stereoscopic data that resulted in a highly significant detection. We present an updated energy spectrum that ranges from 100 GeV to 10 TeV, together with a detailed analysis of the source morphology, which uses skymaps for two different energy regimes. We outline the evidence for the possible PWN nature of the source based on the spectral and morphological information obtained with MAGIC together with existing multi-wavelength data.

Supersymmetry Without Prejudice at the 7 TeV LHC  

SciTech Connect

We investigate the model independent nature of the Supersymmetry search strategies at the 7 TeV LHC. To this end, we study the missing-transverse-energy-based searches developed by the ATLAS Collaboration that were essentially designed for mSUGRA. We simulate the signals for {approx} 71k models in the 19-dimensional parameter space of the pMSSM. These models have been found to satisfy existing experimental and theoretical constraints and provide insight into general features of the MSSM without reference to a particular SUSY breaking scenario or any other assumptions at the GUT scale. Using backgrounds generated by ATLAS, we find that imprecise knowledge of these estimated backgrounds is a limiting factor in the potential discovery of these models and that some channels become systematics-limited at larger luminosities. As this systematic error is varied between 20-100%, roughly half to 90% of this model sample is observable with significance S {ge} 5 for 1 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity. We then examine the model characteristics for the cases which cannot be discovered and find several contributing factors. We find that a blanket statement that squarks and gluinos are excluded with masses below a specific value cannot be made. We next explore possible modifications to the kinematic cuts in these analyses that may improve the pMSSM model coverage. Lastly, we examine the implications of a null search at the 7 TeV LHC in terms of the degree of fine-tuning that would be present in this model set and for sparticle production at the 500 GeV and 1 TeV Linear Collider.

Measuring TeV Cosmic-Ray Electrons with CREST  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

There is strong indirect evidence for the supernova shock acceleration of galactic cosmic-ray electrons through observations of non-thermal X-rays and TeV gamma rays from supernova remnants (SNRs). Current and past electron detectors, typically flown by high altitude balloons, have been limited in their ability to study high energy electrons in the local cosmic-ray flux by their short exposure times and small apertures. To date, no measurements have been made at energies greater than 2 TeV. Yet the detection of high-energy electrons would be extremely significant, yielding information about the spatial distribution of nearby cosmic ray sources. High-energy electrons lose energy rapidly during propagation in the Galaxy through synchrotron and inverse Compton processes and thus TeV electrons reaching the solar system have to originate at distances < 1 kpc, leaving few known supernova remnants from which these particles could originate. The spectral shape of high-energy electrons should, therefore, be strongly affected by the number of nearby sources, and their distance distribution. Conversely, if no such features in the high-energy electron spectrum are observed it will call into question our understanding of cosmic ray sources and propagation. The balloon-borne Cosmic Ray Electron Synchrotron Telescope (CREST) will detect high-energy electrons by measuring the X-ray synchrotron photons generated by these electrons in the Earth's magnetic field. This technique results in a substantial increase in the acceptance and sensitivity of the apparatus compared to the traditional direct detection of electrons. The instrument will consist of a 2m x 2m array of BGO crystals. Simulation studies indicate that with an ultra-long duration (100 day) flight, as many as 250 such electrons will be detected with energies greater than 2 TeV, with an expected background of only 1 event. A prototype instrument is currently being developed and will be flown in 2005 on a conventional balloon. The full CREST instrument will be flown in 2007 in Antarctica. This work is supported by a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Compton polarimetry at a 1 TeV Linear Collider  

SciTech Connect

An electron beam polarization of 80% or greater will be a key feature of a 1 TeV Linear Collider. Accurate measurements of the beam polarization will therefore be needed. The authors discuss design considerations and capabilities for a Compton-scattering polarimeter located in the extraction line from the Interaction Point. Polarization measurements with 1% accuracy take parasitic to collision data look feasible, but detailed simulations are needed. Polarimeter design issues are similar for both electron-positron and electron-electron collider modes, though beam disruption creates more difficulties for the electron-electron mode.

Damping ring designs for a TeV Linear Collider  

SciTech Connect

In this paper we present a damping ring design for the TLC (TeV Linear Collider). The ring operates at 1.8 GeV. It has normalized emittances of elepsilon/sub x/ = 2.8 mrad and elepsilon/sub y/ = 25.4 nmrad. The damping times are /tau//sub x/ = 2.5 ms and /tau//sub y/ = 4.0 ms. To achieve these extremely low emittances and fast damping times, the ring contains 22 m of wigglers. 30 refs., 7 figs., 7 tabs.

TeV neutrinos from core collapse supernovae and hypernovae.  

PubMed

A fraction of core-collapse supernovae of type Ib/c are associated with gamma-ray bursts, which are thought to produce highly relativistic jets. Recently, it has been hypothesized that a larger fraction of core-collapse supernovae produce slower jets, which may contribute to the disruption and ejection of the supernova envelope, and explain the unusually energetic hypernovae. We explore the TeV neutrino signatures expected from such slower jets, and calculate the expected detection rates with upcoming Gigaton Cherenkov experiments. We conclude that individual jetted supernovae may be detectable from nearby galaxies. PMID:15525148

A General Relativistic External Compton-Scattering Model for TeV Emission from M87  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

M87 is the first detected non-blazar extragalactic tera-electron-volt (TeV) source with rapid variation and a very flat spectrum in the TeV band. To explain the two peaks in the spectral energy distribution of the nucleus of M87, which is similar to that of blazars, the most commonly adopted models are the synchrotron self-Compton-scattering models and the external inverse Compton (EIC) scattering models. Considering that there is no correlated variation in the soft band (from radio to X-ray) matching the TeV variation and that the TeV sources should not suffer from ?? absorption due to the flat TeV spectrum, the EIC models are advantageous in modeling the TeV emission from M87. In this paper, we propose a self-consistent EIC model to explain the flat TeV spectrum of M87 within the framework of fully general relativity, where the background soft photons are from the advection-dominated accretion flow around the central black hole, and the high-energy electrons are from the mini-jets that are powered by the magnetic reconnection in the main jet. In our model, both the TeV flares observed in the years 2005 and 2008 could be well explained: the ?? absorption for TeV photons is very low, even inside the region very close to the black hole 20Rg ~ 50Rg ; at the same region, the average EIC cooling time (~102 ~ 103 s) is short, which is consistent with the observed timescale of the TeV variation. Furthermore, we also discuss the possibility that the accompanying X-ray flare in 2008 is due to the direct synchrotron radiation of the mini-jets.

Constraints on the TeV source population and its contribution to the galactic diffuse TeV emission  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The detection by the HESS atmospheric Cerenkov telescope of 14 new sources from the Galactic plane makes it possible to estimate the contribution of unresolved sources like those detected by HESS to the diffuse Galactic emission measured by the Milagro Collaboration. The number intensity relation and the luminosity function for the HESS source population are investigated. By evaluating the contribution of such a source population to the diffuse emission we conclude that a significant fraction of the TeV energy emission measured by the Milagro experiment could be due to unresolved sources like HESS sources. Predictions concerning the number of sources which Veritas, Milagro, and HAWC should detect are also given.

Hard spectrum TeV blazars and intergalactic magnetic fields  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The intergalactic magnetic field (IGMF) in cosmic voids can be indirectly probed through its effect on electromagnetic cascades initiated by a source of TeV gamma rays, such as blazars, a subclass of active galactic nuclei. Blazars that are sufficiently luminous at TeV energies can produce secondary radiation from inverse Compton scattering of the electrons in the cascade, which can be observable provided that the IGMF is not too large. We reveiw recent work in the literature which utilizes this idea to derive constraints on the IGMF for three TeV-detected blazars-1ES 0229+200, 1ES 1218+304, and RGB J0710+591. Through a recently developed detailed Monte Carlo code, incorporating all major effects of QED and cosmological expansion, various systematic uncertainties in the modeling are highlighted and the implications on the lower limits are examined. It is shown that due to these uncertainties, a non-zero lower limit on the IGMF cannot be substantiated.

Flavor at the TeV scale with extra dimensions  

SciTech Connect

Theories where the standard model fields reside on a 3-brane, with a low fundamental cutoff and extra dimensions, provide alternative solutions to the gauge hierarchy problem. However, generating flavor at the TeV scale while avoiding flavor-changing difficulties appears prohibitively difficult at first sight. We argue to the contrary that this picture allows us to lower flavor physics close to the TeV scale. Small Yukawa couplings are generated by ''shining'' badly broken flavor symmetries from distant branes, and flavor and CP-violating processes are adequately suppressed by these symmetries. We further show how the extra dimensions avoid four dimensional disasters associated with light fields charged under flavor. We construct elegant and realistic theories of flavor based on the maximal U(3){sup 5} flavor symmetry which naturally generate the simultaneous hierarchy of masses and mixing angles. Finally, we introduce a new framework for predictive theories of flavor, where our 3-brane is embedded within highly symmetrical configurations of higher-dimensional branes.

Secondly, a solid state nano-pellet is ``punched'' by the photon beam created in the beat wave driven free electron laser (BW-FEL), leading to the ``rapture'' (in a ``karate chop'' model) of the ``MIT Bag''footnotetextJ. I. Friedman and H. Kendall, Viki, in: V. Stefan (Editor), Physics and Society. (Springer, 1998), pp. 103-108]. before the asymptotically free quarks move apart. Hereby, I propose TeV, a few 100s attosecond, photon beams in interaction with the nano-pellet. The threshold ``rapture force'' of the TeV attosecond photon is 10^7 N. )

Measurement of 1/sigma dsigma/dy for Z/gamma* ---> e+e- at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

The author presents the measurement of p{bar p} {yields} Z/{gamma}* {yields} e{sup +}e{sup -} + X inclusive differential cross section as a function of boson rapidity. The data, which correspond to an integrated luminosity of 0.4 fb{sup -1}, were collected with D0 detector at Tevatron p{bar p} collider. At the Run II energy of {radical}s = 1.96 TeV, Z bosons are produced with rapidity out to {+-} 3. The cross section is measured in a mass range between 71 to 111 GeV for the allowed kinematic range.

Evidence for a QPO structure in the TeV and X-ray light curve during the 1997 high state ? emission of Mkn 501  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The BL Lac Object Mkn 501 was in a state of high activity in the TeV range in 1997. During this time Mkn 501 was observed by all Cherenkov-Telescopes of the HEGRA-Collaboration. Part of the data were also taken during moonshine thus providing a nearly continuous coverage for this object in the TeV-range. We have carried out a QPO analysis and found evidence for a 23 day periodicity. We applied the same analysis on the 'data by dwell' x-ray lightcurve from the RXTE/ASM database and found also evidence for the 23 day periodicity. The combined probability was -.

Measurement of the rapidity and transverse momentum distributions of Z bosons in pp collisions at (s)=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Measurements of the normalized rapidity (y) and transverse-momentum (qT) distributions of Drell-Yan muon and electron pairs in the Z-boson mass region (60TeV, collected by the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36pb-1. The distributions are measured over the ranges |y|<3.5 and qT<600GeV and compared with quantum chromodynamics (QCD) calculations using recent parton distribution functions to model the momenta of the quarks and gluons in the protons. Overall agreement is observed between the models and data for the rapidity distribution, while no single model describes the Z transverse-momentum distribution over the full range.

Measurement of B meson production cross-sections in proton-proton collisions at TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The production cross-sections of B mesons are measured in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, using data collected with the LHCb detector corresponding to a integrated luminosity of 0.36 fb-1. The B +, B 0 and mesons are reconstructed in the exclusive decays B + ? J/ ?K +, B 0 ? J/ ?K *0 and , with J/ ? ? ? + ? -, K *0 ? K +?- and ? ? K + K - . The differential cross-sections are measured as functions of B meson transverse momentum p T and rapidity y, in the range 0 < p T < 40 GeV /c and 2 .0 < y < 4 .5. The integrated cross-sections in the same p T and y ranges, including charge-conjugate states, are measured to be where the third uncertainty arises from the pre-existing branching fraction measurements.

Study of Z Boson Production in PbPb Collisions at ?S(NN)=2.76 TeV.  

PubMed

A search for Z bosons in the ?(+)?(-) decay channel has been performed in PbPb collisions at ?S(NN)=2.76 ?TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC, in a 7.2 ?b(-1) data sample. The number of opposite-sign muon pairs observed in the 60-120 GeV/c(2) invariant mass range is 39, corresponding to a yield per unit of rapidity (y) and per minimum bias event of [33.8ą5.5(stat)ą4.4(syst)]×10(-8), in the |y|<2.0 range. Rapidity, transverse momentum, and centrality dependencies are also measured. The results agree with next-to-leading order QCD calculations, scaled by the number of incoherent nucleon-nucleon collisions. PMID:21699291

Double parton interactions in photon+3 jet events in ppbar collisions sqrt{s}=1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We have used a sample of photon+3 jets events collected by the D0 experiment with an integrated luminosity of about 1 fb{sup -1} to determine the fraction of events with double parton scattering (f{sub DP}) in a single ppbar collision at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The DP fraction and effective cross section (sigma{sub eff}), a process-independent scale parameter related to the parton density inside the nucleon, are measured in three intervals of the second (ordered in p{sub T}) jet transverse momentum pT{sub jet2} within the range 15 < pT{sub jet2} < 30 GeV. In this range, f{sub DP} varies between 0.23 < f{sub DP} < 0.47, while sigma{sub eff} has the average value sigma{sub effave} = 16.4 {+-} 0.3(stat) {+-} 2.3(syst) mb.

SAR ambiguous range suppression.  

SciTech Connect

Pulsed Radar systems suffer range ambiguities, that is, echoes from pulses transmitted at different times arrive at the receiver simultaneously. Conventional mitigation techniques are not always adequate. However, pulse modulation schemes exist that allow separation of ambiguous ranges in Doppler space, allowing easy filtering of problematic ambiguous ranges.

Measurement of V 0 production ratios in pp collisions at sqrt {s} = 0.9 and 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The {{{bar{{?} }}} left/ {{?} } right.} and {{{bar{{?} }}} left/ {{K_S^0}} right.} production ratios are measured by the LHCb detector from 0.3 nb-1 of pp collisions delivered by the LHC at sqrt {s} = 0.9 TeV and 1.8 nb-1 at sqrt {s} = 7 TeV. Both ratios are presented as a function of transverse momentum, p T, and rapidity, y, in the ranges 0.15 < p T < 2.50 GeV/ c and 2.0 < y < 4.5. Results at the two energies are in good agreement as a function of rapidity loss, ? y = y beam - y, and are consistent with previous measurements. The ratio {{{bar{{?} }}} left/ {{?}} right.} , measuring the transport of baryon number from the collision into the detector, is smaller in data than predicted in simulation, particularly at high rapidity. The ratio {{{bar{{?}}}} left/ {{K_S^0}} right.} , measuring the baryon-to-meson suppression in strange quark hadronisation, is significantly larger than expected.

Search for excited electrons in pp collisions at {radical}(s)=1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We present the results of a search for the production of an excited state of the electron, e*, in proton-antiproton collisions at {radical}(s)=1.96 TeV. The data were collected with the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider and correspond to an integrated luminosity of approximately 1 fb{sup -1}. We search for e* in the process pp{yields}e*e, with the e* subsequently decaying to an electron plus photon. No excess above the standard model background is observed. Interpreting our data in the context of a model that describes e* production by four-fermion contact interactions and e* decay via electroweak processes, we set 95% C.L. upper limits on the production cross section ranging from 8.9 to 27 fb, depending on the mass of the excited electron. Choosing the scale for contact interactions to be {lambda}=1 TeV, excited electron masses below 756 GeV are excluded at the 95% C.L.

A Measurement of the Spatial Distribution of Diffuse TeV Gamma Ray Emission from the Galactic Plane with Milagro  

SciTech Connect

Diffuse {gamma}-ray emission produced by the interaction of cosmic-ray particles with matter and radiation in the Galaxy can be used to probe the distribution of cosmic rays and their sources in different regions of the Galaxy. With its large field of view and long observation time, the Milagro Gamma Ray Observatory is an ideal instrument for surveying large regions of the Northern Hemisphere sky and for detecting diffuse {gamma}-ray emission at very high energies. Here, the spatial distribution and the flux of the diffuse {gamma}-ray emission in the TeV energy range with a median energy of 15 TeV for Galactic longitudes between 30{sup o} and 110{sup o} and between 136{sup o} and 216{sup o} and for Galactic latitudes between -10{sup o} and 10{sup o} are determined. The measured fluxes are consistent with predictions of the GALPROP model everywhere except for the Cygnus region (l {element_of} [65{sup o}, 85{sup o}]). For the Cygnus region, the flux is twice the predicted value. This excess can be explained by the presence of active cosmic ray sources accelerating hadrons which interact with the local dense interstellar medium and produce gamma rays through pion decay.

Search at Dřfor Inclusive WZ Diboson Events in Trilepton Final States at ?(s)=1.96 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Presented is a study of searching for WZ diboson events in trilepton final states using data on pp collision collected by the Dřexperiment during 2002-2004 at the Fermilab Tevatron at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The cleanest experimental signal for the WZ events is from a pair of leptons (e^+e^- or ^+^-) from the decay of the Z boson, and another lepton (e or ?) with large transverse momentum (pT) and a large imbalance pT in the event (missing neutrino) from the leptonic decay of the W boson. Three trilepton events with the WZ decay characteristics is observed in Dřdata. With an estimated background of 0.66ą0.11 events and integrated luminosities ranging from 285 - 320 pb-1 for different trilepton final states, we measure the WZ production cross section to be 4.4^+3.8-2.5 pb and set a 95% confidence level upper limit of 13.2 pb. We also obtain 95% confidence limit contours for ?Z vs.?g1^Z and ??Z vs.?Z using a form factor of ?= 1 TeV.

Full Jet Reconstruction in 2.76 TeV pp and Pb-Pb collisions in the ALICE experiment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Measurements of the suppression of high-pT particles and the away-side jets from heavy-ion collisions at RHIC have shown that medium-induced energy loss affects partons produced in the early stage of a heavy-ion collision. At LHC energies the initial production cross-section is much higher, which allows jets to be reconstructed with a wide kinematic range. Measuring fully reconstructed jets by taking advantage of the ALICE Electromagnetic Calorimeter allows for a more differential investigation of the parton energy loss. Parton energy loss will allow us to access key observables of the hot, dense matter created in heavy ion collisions. The data presented was collected during the 2.76 TeV Pb-Pb runs, as well as baseline measurements from the 2.76 TeV pp run. The procedures used to reconstruct jets and extract them from a fluctuating background will be discussed. The procedure for quantifying the background with a limited acceptance will also be discussed. These results are compared to pp measurements and simulations.

Measurement of inclusive jet and dijet production in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV using the ATLAS detector  

SciTech Connect

Inclusive jet and dijet cross sections have been measured in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The cross sections were measured using jets clustered with the anti-k{sub t} algorithm with parameters R = 0.4 and R = 0.6. These measurements are based on the 2010 data sample, consisting of a total integrated luminosity of 37 pb{sup -1}. Inclusive jet double-differential cross sections are presented as a function of jet transverse momentum, in bins of jet rapidity. Dijet double-differential cross sections are studied as a function of the dijet invariant mass, in bins of half the rapidity separation of the two leading jets. The measurements are performed in the jet rapidity range |y| < 4.4, covering jet transverse momenta from 20 GeV to 1.5 TeV and dijet invariant masses from 70 GeV to 5 TeV. The data are compared to expectations based on next-to-leading-order QCD calculations corrected for nonperturbative effects, as well as to next-to-leading-order Monte Carlo predictions. In addition to a test of the theory in a new kinematic regime, the data also provide sensitivity to parton distribution functions in a region where they are currently not well-constrained.

Measurement of the cosmic ray antiproton/proton flux ratio at TeV energies with the ARGO-YBJ detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Cosmic ray antiprotons provide an important probe to study the cosmic ray propagation in the interstellar space and to investigate the existence of dark matter. Acting the Earth-Moon system as a magnetic spectrometer, paths of primary antiprotons are deflected in the opposite sense with respect to those of the protons in their way to the Earth. This effect allows, in principle, the search for antiparticles in the direction opposite to the observed deficit of cosmic rays due to the Moon (the so-called “Moon shadow”). The ARGO-YBJ experiment, located at the Yangbajing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300 m a.s.l., 606g/cm2), is particularly effective in measuring the cosmic ray antimatter content via the observation of the cosmic rays shadowing effect due to: (1) good angular resolution, pointing accuracy and long-term stability; (2) low energy threshold; (3) real sensitivity to the geomagnetic field. Based on all the data recorded during the period from July 2006 through November 2009 and on a full Monte Carlo simulation, we searched for the existence of the shadow cast by antiprotons in the TeV energy region. No evidence of the existence of antiprotons is found in this energy region. Upper limits to the pŻ/p flux ratio are set to 5% at a median energy of 1.4 TeV and 6% at 5 TeV with a confidence level of 90%. In the TeV energy range these limits are the lowest available.

Neutrinos in the simplest little Higgs scenario and TeV leptogenesis  

SciTech Connect

The little Higgs scenario may provide an interesting framework to accommodate TeV scale leptogenesis, because a TeV Majorana mass of the right-handed neutrino that we employ for the latter may find a natural place near the ultraviolet cutoff of the former. In this work we study how a light neutrino spectrum, generated radiatively, and TeV scale leptogenesis can be embedded in the simplest little Higgs framework.

Measurement of Cosmic-Ray TeV Electrons  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Cosmic Ray Electron Synchrotron Telescope (CREST) high-altitude balloon experiment is a pathfinding effort to detect for the first time multi-TeV cosmic-ray electrons. At these energies distant sources will not contribute to the local electron spectrum due to the strong energy losses of the electrons and thus TeV observations will reflect the distribution and abundance of nearby acceleration sites. CREST will detect electrons indirectly by measuring the characteristic synchrotron photons generated in the Earth's magnetic field. The instrument consist of an array of 1024 BaF2 crystals viewed by photomultiplier tubes surrounded by a hermetic scintillator shield. Since the primary electron itself need not traverse the payload, an effective detection area is achieved that is several times the nominal 6.4 m2 instrument. CREST is scheduled to fly in a long duration circumpolar orbit over Antarctica during the 2011-12 season.

The interdependence of parameters for TeV linear colliders  

SciTech Connect

A call, at SLAC, for a design of a 0.5 + 0.5 TeV e/sup +/e/sup -/ collider with a luminosity of at least 10/sup 33/ cm/sup -2/ sec/sup -1/ has been made. In order to find whether such a machine is possible, approximate formulae are collected for many of the relations governing the design of a linear collider. It must be emphasized that these are often only approximate relations whose accuracy is not expected to be better than about 10%, and in some cases may be worse. Units throughout will be meter-kilogram-second (mks) unless otherwise stated. Given these relations, their interdependence is studied and parameter choices made. A self-consistent solution is found that meets specification and does not involve any exotic technologies.

Surveying the TeV Sky with the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Observatory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The highest energy gamma rays probe Nature's particle accelerators and the physical mechanisms operating in these extreme sources. The flux from these TeV accelerators decreases with gamma ray energy and in many cases is rapidly and unpredictably variable. A detector, such as the HAWC observatory with its wide field of view of ˜ 2 steradians and nearly 100% duty factor, will enable new observations of the TeV sky. The large area and good background rejection will allow spectral measurements to >100 TeV which are key to determining the sources of Galactic cosmic rays. And the HAWC sensitivity at <1 TeV is sufficient to detect flaring active galactic nuclei and search for the predicted prompt emission from gamma-ray bursts. However, the most exciting results will likely come from the unpredicted observations enabled by HAWC's unbiased survey of the entire Northern Hemisphere sky.

Home range and travels  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The concept of home range was expressed by Seton (1909) in the term 'home region,' which Burr (1940, 1943) clarified with a definition of home range and exemplified in a definitive study of Peromyscus in the field. Burt pointed out the ever-changing characteristics of home-range area and the consequent absence of boundaries in the usual sense--a finding verified by investigators thereafter. In the studies summarized in this paper, sizes of home ranges of Peromyscus varied within two magnitudes, approximately from 0.1 acre to ten acres, in 34 studies conducted in a variety of habitats from the seaside dunes of Florida to the Alaskan forests. Variation in sizes of home ranges was correlated with both environmental and physiological factors; with habitat it was conspicuous, both in the same and different regions. Food supply also was related to size of home range, both seasonally and in relation to habitat. Home ranges generally were smallest in winter and largest in spring, at the onset of the breeding season. Activity and size also were affected by changes in weather. Activity was least when temperatures were low and nights were bright. Effects of rainfall were variable. Sizes varied according to sex and age; young mice remained in the parents' range until they approached maturity, when they began to travel more widely. Adult males commonly had larger home ranges than females, although there were a number of exceptions. An inverse relationship between population density and size of home range was shown in several studies and probably is the usual relationship. A basic need for activity and exploration also appeared to influence size of home range. Behavior within the home range was discussed in terms of travel patterns, travels in relation to home sites and refuges, territory, and stability of size of home range. Travels within the home range consisted of repeated use of well-worn trails to sites of food, shelter, and refuge, plus more random exploratory travels. Peromyscus generally used and maintained several or many different home sites and refuges in various parts of their home ranges, and frequently shifted about so that their principal activities centered on different sets of holes at different times. Once established, many Peromyscus remained in the same general area for a long time, perhaps for the duration of their lives. Extent of their travels in different directions and intensity of use of different portions of their home ranges varied within a general area in response to habitat changes, loss of neighbors, or other factors. Various authors have obtained both direct and indirect evidence of territoriality, in some degree, among certain species of Peromyscus. Young mice dispersed from their birth sites to establish home ranges of their own. Adults also sometimes left their home areas; some re-established elsewhere; others returned after exploratory travels. Most populations contained a certain proportion of transients; these may have been wanderers or individuals exploring out from established home ranges or seeking new ones. When areas were depopulated by removal trapping, other Peromyscus invaded. Invasion rates generally followed seasonal trends of reproduction and population density. Peromyscus removed from their home areas and released elsewhere returned home from various distances, but fewer returned from greater distances than from nearby; speed of return increased with successive trials. The consensus from present evidence is that ho-ming is made possible by a combination of random wandering and familiarity with a larger area than the day-to-day range. Records of juvenile wanderings during the dispersal phase and of adult explorations very nearly encompassed the distances over which any substantial amount of successful homing occurred. Methods of measuring sizes of home ranges and the limitations of these measurements were discussed in brief synopsis. It was co

The current status of the 2mrad crossing angle layout for the ILC is reviewed. The scheme developed in the UK and France is described and the performance discussed for a TeV machine. Secondly, the scheme developed at SLAC and BNL is then studied and modified for a TeV machine. We find that both schemes can handle the higher energy beam with modifications, and share many common features.

GeV partons and TeV hexons from a topological viewpoint  

SciTech Connect

An elementary TeV topological hadron supermultiplet breaks into GeV-scale mesons, baryons and baryoniums and TeV-scale hexons (extremely-heavy bosons corresponding to six topological constituents). Phenomena on the GeV scale are describable by parton graphs which give meaning to constituent quarks of QCD type. Hexons are responsible - through mixing - for electroweak-boson masses, may be responsible for cosmic-ray Centauro events, and promise novel TeV accelerator phenomena. 25 references.

Reconnaissance of Colorado Front Range bogs for uranium and other elements  

SciTech Connect

Alpine bogs form along spring-fed valley floors and in steam drainages restricted by moraines, slides, and beaver dams. The bogs are generally young (Holocene) and contain a few tens of centimeters to several meters of peat and organic-rich muck. Organic matter has a great affinity for cations such as uranium; the geochemical enrichment factor between the peats and uraniferous ground water can approach 10,000 to 1. Because the bog sediments are geologically young, the uranium is in gross disequilibrium and has low radioactivity, thus it is undetectable by ground and aerial gamma surveys. Communities that derive a part of their water supplies from drainages containing uraniferous bogs face a potential health threat because the uranium is loosely bound and may easily be remobilized by ground water moving through the bogs. Reconnaissance sampling of bogs was conducted in the Colorado Front Range from the South Park area to the Colorado-Wyoming state line. Several bogs have uranium concentrations of 1000-3000 ppm, but most bogs have uranium concentrations in the 10-100 ppm range. Zinc concentrations of 100-1000 ppm are found in some bogs and many other metallic elements are present in concentrations between 10 and 100 ppm. Concentrations between 100 and 1000 ppm of some of the rare earth elements (e.g., Ce, La, Nd, Yb) were found in the Cripple Creek area.

Combined results of searches for the standard model Higgs boson in pp collisions at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Combined results are reported from searches for the standard model Higgs boson in proton-proton collisions at s=7 TeV in five Higgs boson decay modes: ??, bb, ??, WW, and ZZ. The explored Higgs boson mass range is 110-600 GeV. The analysed data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.6-4.8 fb-1. The expected excluded mass range in the absence of the standard model Higgs boson is 118-543 GeV at 95% CL. The observed results exclude the standard model Higgs boson in the mass range 127-600 GeV at 95% CL, and in the mass range 129-525 GeV at 99% CL. An excess of events above the expected standard model background is observed at the low end of the explored mass range making the observed limits weaker than expected in the absence of a signal. The largest excess, with a local significance of 3.1?, is observed for a Higgs boson mass hypothesis of 124 GeV. The global significance of observing an excess with a local significance ?3.1? anywhere in the search range 110-600 (110-145) GeV is estimated to be 1.5?(2.1?). More data are required to ascertain the origin of the observed excess.

Measurement of J/? production in pp collisions at sqrt{s}=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The production of J/? mesons in proton-proton collisions at sqrt{s}=7ensuremath { mathrm {TeV}} is studied with the LHCb detector at the LHC. The differential cross-section for prompt J/? production is measured as a function of the J/? transverse momentum pT and rapidity y in the fiducial region {pT}in[0;14]{ GeVmskip-2mu/mskip-1mu c} and y?[2.0;4.5]. The differential cross-section and fraction of J/? from b-hadron decays are also measured in the same pT and y ranges. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.2 pb-1. The measured cross-sections integrated over the fiducial region are [InlineEquation not available: see fulltext.] for prompt {J?}} production and [InlineEquation not available: see fulltext.] for J/? from b-hadron decays, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. The prompt {J?}} production cross-section is obtained assuming no J/? polarisation and the third error indicates the acceptance uncertainty due to this assumption.

Diffractive dijet production in pŻp collisions at s=1.96TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report on a study of diffractive dijet production in pŻp collisions at s=1.96TeV using the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron pŻp collider. A data sample from 310pb-1 of integrated luminosity collected by triggering on a high transverse energy jet, ETjet, in coincidence with a recoil antiproton detected in a Roman pot spectrometer is used to measure the ratio of single-diffractive to inclusive-dijet event rates as a function of xpŻ of the interacting parton in the antiproton, the Bjorken-x, xBjpŻ, and a Q2?(ETjet)2 in the ranges 10-3-4GeV2. The tpŻ dependence is measured as a function of Q2 and xBjpŻ and compared with that of inclusive single diffraction dissociation. We find weak xBjpŻ and Q2 dependencies in the ratio of single diffractive to inclusive event rates, and no significant Q2 dependence in the diffractive tpŻ distributions.

First Search for Multijet Resonances in s=1.96TeV ppŻ Collisions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present the first model independent search for three-jet hadronic resonances within multijet events in s=1.96TeV ppŻ collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron using the CDF II detector. Pair production of supersymmetric gluinos and squarks with hadronic R-parity violating decays is employed as an example of a new physics benchmark for this signature. Selection criteria based on the kinematic properties of an ensemble of jet combinations within each event help to extract signal from copious QCD background. No significant excess outside the top quark mass window is observed in data with an integrated luminosity of 3.2fb-1. We place 95% confidence level limits on the production cross section ?(ppŻ?XX')×BR(g˜g˜?3jet+3jet) where X, X'=g˜, q˜, or qŻ˜, with q˜, qŻ˜?g˜+jet, as a function of gluino mass, in the range of 77GeV/c2 to 240GeV/c2.

Lower limits on ultrahigh-energy cosmic ray and jet powers of TeV blazars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lower limits on the power emitted in ultrahigh-energy cosmic ray (UHECR) protons are derived for TeV blazars with the assumption that the observed TeV gamma rays are generated due to interactions of these protons with cosmic microwave photons. This mechanism may be at work in four blazars, namely 1ES 0229+200; 1ES 1101-232; 1ES 0347-121 and 1ES 1426+428, which are at sufficiently high redshift (>0.1) that allow efficient cascade development to make TeV emission and which are non-varying or very weakly varying at >TeV energies. The lower limits on the UHECR power are lower than the respective synchrotron luminosities in case of all blazars except for 1ES 1426+428. The proposed Auger North Observatory can detect 40 EeV cosmic rays from this extraordinary source and test the UHECR-generated TeV emission model, which requires the intergalactic magnetic field strength to be below 10-16 G. The lower limits on the jet power for all four TeV blazars exceed the Eddington luminosity of a 10^9 solar mass black hole in case the injected UHECR spectrum is softer than -2.2.

TeV AND MULTI-WAVELENGTH OBSERVATIONS OF Mrk 421 IN 2006-2008  

SciTech Connect

We report on TeV {gamma}-ray observations of the blazar Mrk 421 (redshift of 0.031) with the VERITAS observatory and the Whipple 10 m Cherenkov telescope. The excellent sensitivity of VERITAS allowed us to sample the TeV {gamma}-ray fluxes and energy spectra with unprecedented accuracy where Mrk 421 was detected in each of the pointings. A total of 47.3 hr of VERITAS and 96 hr of Whipple 10 m data were acquired between 2006 January and 2008 June. We present the results of a study of the TeV {gamma}-ray energy spectra as a function of time and for different flux levels. On 2008 May 2 and 3, bright TeV {gamma}-ray flares were detected with fluxes reaching the level of 10 Crab. The TeV {gamma}-ray data were complemented with radio, optical, and X-ray observations, with flux variability found in all bands except for the radio wave band. The combination of the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer and Swift X-ray data reveal spectral hardening with increasing flux levels, often correlated with an increase of the source activity in TeV {gamma}-rays. Contemporaneous spectral energy distributions were generated for 18 nights, each of which are reasonably described by a one-zone synchrotron self-Compton model.

Discovery of a New TeV Gamma-Ray Source: VER J0521+211  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report the detection of a new TeV gamma-ray source, VER J0521+211, based on observations made with the VERITAS imaging atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope Array. These observations were motivated by the discovery of a cluster of >30 GeV photons in the first year of Fermi Large Area Telescope observations. VER J0521+211 is relatively bright at TeV energies, with a mean photon flux of (1.93 ą 0.13stat ą 0.78sys) × 10–11 cm–2 s–1 above 0.2 TeV during the period of the VERITAS observations. The source is strongly variable on a daily timescale across all wavebands, from optical to TeV, with a peak flux corresponding to ~0.3 times the steady Crab Nebula flux at TeV energies. Follow-up observations in the optical and X-ray bands classify the newly discovered TeV source as a BL Lac-type blazar with uncertain redshift, although recent measurements suggest z = 0.108. VER J0521+211 exhibits all the defining properties of blazars in radio, optical, X-ray, and gamma-ray wavelengths.

Extensive air showers generated by protons, nuclei, gamma-quanta and neutrinos at energy range 1 - 100 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Basic science: nuclear physics, physics of elementary particles and connected with them astrophysics and cosmology, has studied the structure of matter on micro and macro scales. Gamma-astronomy and neutrino-astronomy, are unique experimental possibilities to search for high-energy cosmic ray sources (1012 - 1014 eV). Evidence has already been obtained of metagalactic sources exceeding by 106 - 1012 times the power of gamma-quanta galactic sources. This data puts into doubt the assumption about the galactic origin of the observed very high energy cosmic radiation. The energy spectrum of the majority of known gamma-sources with energy 1012 - 1014 eV is harder than the proton and cosmic ray nuclei spectrum. The problem of observing extensive air showers generated by neutrinos is connected with the extremely small effective cross-section of inelastic collisions of neutrinos with nuclei. However, two facts allow a search for showers generated by neutrinos. The hadron cascade with primary energy of more than 1012 eV leaves the ground to atmosphere from depth of ~ 300 g/cm2 without essential loss of total energy in the hadron cascade. The Cherenkov radiation in the atmosphere from such hadron cascades will be observed at distances from the telescope of 7.5 km over an area more than 7 . 105 m2. This partially compensates for the small cross-section of inelastic neutrino collisions. RFBR, FNP, GNTP

Measurement of charged particle multiplicities in pp collisions at sqrt{s} =7 {TeV} in the forward region  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Charged particle production in proton-proton collisions is studied with the LHCb detector at a centre-of-mass energy of ?{s} = 7 TeV in different intervals of pseudorapidity ?. Charged particles are reconstructed close to the interaction region in the vertex detector, which provides high reconstruction efficiency in the ? ranges -2.5< ?<-2.0 and 2.0< ?<4.5. The data were taken with a minimum bias trigger, only requiring one or more reconstructed tracks in the vertex detector. By selecting an event sample with at least one track with a transverse momentum greater than 1 GeV/ c a hard QCD subsample is investigated. Several event generators are compared with the data; none are able to describe fully the multiplicity distributions or the charged particle density distribution as a function of ?. In general, the models underestimate charged particle production.

Probing the KEV - GEV - Tev Connection in PKS 2005-489 by Simultaneous Observations with RXTE, Fermigst and Hess  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

High-frequency peaked BL Lac objects are detectable over a broad energy range up to very high energies and are promising candidates for simultaneous detection with the instrument LAT onboard FermiGST and ground-based Cherenkov telescopes. Together with contemporaneous RXTE observations, the SED, which is characterized by two significant peaks in the UV-X-ray and GeV-TeV regime, can be analysed in detail. We propose a multifrequency campaign on the HBL PKS 2005-489, which shows the softest TeV spectrum ever measured on a constant flux level while it is variable in X-rays. To achieve simultaneous spectral information about PKS 2005-489 with the instruments RXTE, FermiGST/LAT und HESS, we propose for 10 x 3ks RXTE observations covering a time of 14 days.

Effectiveness of TeV ?-ray observations at large zenith angles with a stereoscopic system of imaging atmospheric Cerenkov telescopes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The sensitivity of imaging atmospheric Cerenkov telescopes (IACTs) in TeV ?-ray observations reaches its maximum at small zenith angles (SZAs) (? ? 30o) which provides the minimum attainable energy threshold of an instrument. However, for a specific telescope site a number of ?-ray sources, or source candidates, can only be observed at much larger zenith angles (LZAs) (? ? 60o). Moreover, the observations at LZAs allow us to extend the observation time window for any object seen at SZAs, as well as to enlarge the dynamic energy range of an instrument towards the highest observable energies of ?-rays. Based on Monte Carlo simulations we present the results on the sensitivity of a stereoscopic system of five IACTs in observations at LZAs. We point out some important parameters of the telescope design which could substantially improve the efficiency of such observations with forthcoming IACT arrays like CANGAROO III, HESS and VERITAS.

Search for a Fourth Generation t' Quark in ppŻ Collisions at s=1.96TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a search for pair production of a fourth generation t' quark and its antiparticle, followed by their decays to a W boson and a jet, based on an integrated luminosity of 5.3fb-1 of proton-antiproton collisions at s=1.96TeV collected by the D0 Collaboration at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We set upper limits on the t'tŻ' production cross section that exclude at the 95% C.L. a t' quark that decays exclusively to W+jet with a mass below 285 GeV. We observe a small excess in the ?+jets channel which reduces the mass range excluded compared to the expected limit of 320 GeV in the absence of a signal.

Measurement of the cross-section ratio ?(?)/?(?) for prompt ?c production at s=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The prompt production of the charmonium ? and ? mesons has been studied in proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of s=7 TeV. The ?c mesons are identified through their decays ?c?J/?? with J/???+?- using 36 pb of data collected by the LHCb detector in 2010. The ratio of the prompt production cross-sections for the two ?c spin states, ?(?)/?(?), has been determined as a function of the J/? transverse momentum, pTJ/?, in the range from 2 to 15 GeV/c. The results are in agreement with the next-to-leading order non-relativistic QCD model at high pTJ/? and lie consistently above the pure leading-order colour-singlet prediction.

Emittance Dilution in the Linacs of Linear Colliders with Energies of 1 and 5 TeV.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper, we describe the single and multibunch sources of emittance dilution in the linacs of both 1 and 5 TeV center-of-mass energy linear colliders. The linacs operate at high rf accelerating gradients with a frequency around 30 GHz. At this high accelerating frequency, the wakefields are very strong and we discuss the BNS damping and correction procedures as well as the alignment and construction tolerances that are required to preserve the transverse emittance. Finally, because the collider must operate with long bunch trains, we consider the multibunch emittance dilution for two cases: that where the long-range transverse wakefield is purely damped and that where the wakefield is decreased by a combination of weak damping and detuning.

Measurements of the Angular Distributions of Muons from ? Decays in ppŻ Collisions at s=1.96TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The angular distributions of muons from ?(1S,2S,3S)??+?- decays are measured using data from ppŻ collisions at s=1.96TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6.7fb-1 and collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. This analysis is the first to report the full angular distributions as functions of transverse momentum pT for ? mesons in both the Collins-Soper and s-channel helicity frames. This is also the first measurement of the spin alignment of ?(3S) mesons. Within the kinematic range of ? rapidity |y|<0.6 and pT up to 40GeV/c, the angular distributions are found to be nearly isotropic.

Search for three-jet resonances in pp collisions at square root(s)=7??TeV.  

PubMed

A search for three-jet hadronic resonance production in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV has been conducted by the CMS Collaboration at the LHC, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35??pb(-1). Events with high jet multiplicity and a large scalar sum of jet transverse momenta are analyzed using a signature-based approach. The number of expected standard model background events is found to be in good agreement with the observed events. Limits on the cross section times branching ratio are set in a model of gluino pair production with an R-parity-violating decay to three quarks, and the data rule out such particles within the mass range of 200 to 280??GeV/c2.

Measurement of the ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) Polarizations in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The polarizations of the ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) mesons are measured in proton-proton collisions at s=7TeV, using a data sample of ?(nS)??+?- decays collected by the CMS experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.9fb-1. The dimuon decay angular distributions are analyzed in three different polarization frames. The polarization parameters ??, ??, and ???, as well as the frame-invariant quantity ?˜, are presented as a function of the ?(nS) transverse momentum between 10 and 50 GeV, in the rapidity ranges |y|<0.6 and 0.6<|y|<1.2. No evidence of large transverse or longitudinal polarizations is seen in the explored kinematic region.

Search for a W' or Techni-? Decaying into WZ in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search is performed in pp collisions at s=7TeV for exotic particles decaying via WZ to final states with electrons and muons. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of approximately 5fb-1. No significant excess is observed in the data above the expected standard model background. Upper bounds at 95% confidence level are set on the production cross section of the W' boson described by the sequential standard model and on the W' WZ coupling. W' bosons with masses below 1143 GeV are excluded. Limits are also set in the context of low-scale technicolor models, under a range of assumptions concerning the model parameters.

Magnicon development to power TeV colliders. Final report, 16 May 1991--14 May 1994  

SciTech Connect

The goal of this program was the development of a high power frequency-doubling magnicon amplifier at 11.4 GHz. The magnicon is an advanced {open_quotes}scanning-beam{close_quotes} microwave amplifier tube for use in powering future high gradient linear accelerators, such as the proposed TeV linear collider known as the Next Linear Collider (NLC). The rf source for the NLC must provide a power of 500 MW to 1 GW per tube in a 200 nsec pulse at a frequency in the range of 10-20 GHz. The required power can either be generated directly in 200 nsec pulses, or generated at longer pulse lengths (e.g., 1-2 {mu}sec) and then pulse-compressed. Because the average power required by the NLC is so large, source efficiency is a crucial consideration.

Search for a light charged Higgs boson in top quark decays in pp collisions at ?{s} = 7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Results are presented on a search for a light charged Higgs boson that can be produced in the decay of the top quark t ? H+b and which, in turn, decays into ? +? ? . The analysed data correspond to an integrated luminosity of about 2 fb-1 recorded in protonproton collisions at ?{s} = 7TeV by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The search is sensitive to the decays of the top quark pairs {t}overline {t} ? Hą W ? {b}overline {b} and {t}overline {t} ? HąH? {b}overline {b} . Various final states have been studied separately, all requiring presence of a ? lepton from H+ decays, missing transverse energy, and multiple jets. Upper limits on the branching fraction B(t ? H+b) in the range of 2-4 % are established for charged Higgs boson masses between 80 and 160 GeV, under the assumption that B(H+ ? ? +? ? ) = 1.

Charged-particle multiplicity pp collisions at square root of (s) = 1.8 TeV.  

PubMed

We report on a measurement of the mean charged-particle multiplicity of jets in dijet events with dijet masses in the range 80-630 GeV/c(2), produced at the Tevatron in pp collisions with square root (s) = 1.8 TeV and recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The data are fit to perturbative-QCD calculations carried out in the framework of the modified leading log approximation and the hypothesis of local parton-hadron duality. The fit yields values for two parameters in that framework: the ratio of parton multiplicities in gluon and quark jets, r identical withN(g-jet)(partons)/N(q-jet)(partons) = 1.7+/-0.3, and the ratio of the number of charged hadrons to the number of partons in a jet, K(charged)(LPHD) identical with N(charged)(hadrons)/N(partons) = 0.57+/-0.11.

J/? suppression at forward rapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at ?s(NN) = 2.76 TeV.  

PubMed

The ALICE experiment has measured the inclusive J/? production in Pb-Pb collisions at ?s(NN) = 2.76 TeV down to zero transverse momentum in the rapidity range 2.5 < y < 4. A suppression of the inclusive J/? yield in Pb-Pb is observed with respect to the one measured in pp collisions scaled by the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions. The nuclear modification factor, integrated over the 0%-80% most central collisions, is 0.545 ą 0.032(stat) ą 0.083(syst) and does not exhibit a significant dependence on the collision centrality. These features appear significantly different from measurements at lower collision energies. Models including J/? production from charm quarks in a deconfined partonic phase can describe our data.

Search for Three-Jet Resonances in pp Collisions at {radical}(s)=7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

A search for three-jet hadronic resonance production in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV has been conducted by the CMS Collaboration at the LHC, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35 pb{sup -1}. Events with high jet multiplicity and a large scalar sum of jet transverse momenta are analyzed using a signature-based approach. The number of expected standard model background events is found to be in good agreement with the observed events. Limits on the cross section times branching ratio are set in a model of gluino pair production with an R-parity-violating decay to three quarks, and the data rule out such particles within the mass range of 200 to 280 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Search for. gamma. rays from the supernova 1987A at energies greater than 100 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We searched for ultrahigh-energy ..gamma.. rays emitted by the supernova 1987A with a new cosmic-ray facility installed at the Black Birch Range in New Zealand. The observations from 13 October to 3 December 1987 suggest no clear clustering of events around the direction of the supernova. We conclude that an upper limit on the flux ..gamma.. rays of energies greater than 100 TeV is 1.1 x 10/sup -12/ cm/sup -2/ s/sup -1/ (95% confidence limit) for a differential spectral index ..cap alpha.. = 2.0 and source distance d = 50 kpc. This value gives an upper bound on the ..gamma..-ray luminosity of the supernova of 5.5 x 10/sup 38/ erg s/sup -1/ for 10/sup 14/--10/sup 17/ eV

PSR J1907+0602: A Radio-Faint Gamma-Ray Pulsar Powering a Bright TeV Pulsar Wind Nebula  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present multiwavelength studies of the 106.6 ms ?-ray pulsar PSR J1907+06 near the TeV source MGRO J1908+06. Timing observations with Fermi result in a precise position determination for the pulsar of R.A. = 19h07m54.s7(2), decl. = +06°02'16(2)'' placing the pulsar firmly within the TeV source extent, suggesting the TeV source is the pulsar wind nebula of PSR J1907+0602. Pulsed ?-ray emission is clearly visible at energies from 100 MeV to above 10 GeV. The phase-averaged power-law index in the energy range E > 0.1 GeV is ? = 1.76 ą 0.05 with an exponential cutoff energy Ec = 3.6 ą 0.5 GeV. We present the energy-dependent ?-ray pulsed light curve as well as limits on off-pulse emission associated with the TeV source. We also report the detection of very faint (flux density of ~= 3.4 ?Jy) radio pulsations with the Arecibo telescope at 1.5 GHz having a dispersion measure DM = 82.1 ą 1.1 cm-3 pc. This indicates a distance of 3.2 ą 0.6 kpc and a pseudo-luminosity of L 1400 ~= 0.035 mJy kpc2. A Chandra ACIS observation revealed an absorbed, possibly extended, compact (lsim4'') X-ray source with significant nonthermal emission at R.A. = 19h07m54.s76, decl. = +06°02'14farcs6 with a flux of 2.3+0.6 -1.4 × 10-14 erg cm-2 s-1. From archival ASCA observations, we place upper limits on any arcminute scale 2-10 keV X-ray emission of ~1 × 10-13 erg cm-2 s-1. The implied distance to the pulsar is compatible with that of the supernova remnant G40.5 - 0.5, located on the far side of the TeV nebula from PSR J1907+0602, and the S74 molecular cloud on the nearer side which we discuss as potential birth sites.

Measurement of the differential cross section for the production of an isolated photon with associated jet in p p Ż collisions at s = 1.96   TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

The process ppŻ??+jet+X is studied using 1.0 fb?1 of data collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron ppŻ collider at a center-of-mass energy s=1.96 TeV. Photons are reconstructed in the central rapidity region |y?|1.0 with transverse momenta in the range 30pT?400 GeV while jets are reconstructed in either the central |yjet|0.8 or forward 1.5|yjet|2.5 rapidity intervals with pTjet>15 GeV.

Inclusive dimuon and b-quark production cross sections in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We report on a preliminary measurement of the inclusive dimuon cross section in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV using the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. From these results, we extract the inclusive b-quark production cross section for the kinematic range {vert_bar}y{sup b}{vert_bar} < 1.0 and 9 GeV/c < p{sub T}{sup b min} < 25 GeV/c. The difference in azimuthal angle in the transverse plane for dimuon pairs from b{bar b} production is also shown.

Search for Neutral Higgs Bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model Decaying to {tau} Pairs in pp Collisions at {radical}(s)=1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We present a search for neutral supersymmetric Higgs bosons decaying to {tau} pairs produced in pp collisions at {radical}(s)=1.96 TeV. The data, corresponding to 310 pb{sup -1} integrated luminosity, were collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab in run II of the Tevatron. No significant excess above the standard model backgrounds is observed. We set exclusion limits on the production cross section times branching fraction to {tau} pairs for Higgs boson masses in the range from 90 to 250 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Measurement of W? and Z? production cross sections in pp collisions at s=7 TeV and limits on anomalous triple gauge couplings with the ATLAS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This Letter presents measurements of lą?? and l+l?? (l=e,?) production in 1.02 fb of pp collision data recorded at s=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in the first half of 2011. Events dominated by W? and Z? production with leptonic decays of the W and Z bosons are selected, and their production cross sections and kinematic properties are measured in several ranges of the photon transverse energy. The results are compared to Standard Model predictions and are used to determine limits on anomalous WW? and ZZ?/Z?? couplings.

Search for the standard model Higgs boson in the H ? ZZ ? ?+?-?+?- decay channel in pp collisions at ? {s} = {7}{{TeV}}  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search is reported for the standard model Higgs boson in the H ? ZZ ? ?+?-? +? - decay mode, where ? = ? or e, in proton-proton collisions at ? {s} = {7}{{TeV}} , corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb-1 collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. No evidence is found for a significant deviation from the background expectation. An upper limit four to twelve times larger than the predicted value is set at 95% confidence level for the product of the standard model Higgs boson production cross section and decay branching fraction in the mass range 190 < m H < 600 GeV.

Measurement of isolated photon production in pp and PbPb collisions at sNN=2.76 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Isolated photon production is measured in proton–proton and lead–lead collisions at nucleon–nucleon centre-of-mass energies of 2.76 TeV in the pseudorapidity range |?|<1.44 and transverse energies ET between 20 and 80 GeV with the CMS detector at the LHC. The measured ET spectra are found to be in good agreement with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD predictions. The ratio of PbPb to pp isolated photon ET-differential yields, scaled by the number of incoherent nucleon–nucleon collisions, is consistent with unity for all PbPb reaction centralities.

Measurement of J/psi and psi(2S) polarization in pp collisions at sqrt[s] = 1.8 TeV.  

PubMed

We have measured the polarization of J/psi and psi(2S) mesons produced in pp collisions at sqrt[s] = 1.8 TeV, using data collected at the Collider Detector at Fermilab during 1992-1995. The polarization of promptly produced J/psi [psi(2S)] mesons is isolated from those produced in B-hadron decay, and measured over the kinematic range 4 [5.5]

Elliptic flow in Pb-Pb collisions at ?sNN = 2.76 TeV with the ALICE experiment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The elliptic azimuthal event anisotropy, v2, is an important observable used to study the nature and properties of matter created in heavy-ion collisions. We report on measurements of v2 for inclusive and identified charged particles in Pb-Pb collisions at ?sNN = 2.76 TeV recorded by the ALICE experiment at the LHC. v2 is presented for a wide range of particle transverse momenta up to pT=20 GeV/c. The results are compared to the measurements at lower energy reported by RHIC experiments and also to theoretical predictions.

First Look at Beauty and Beauty-Jet Tagging via Secondary Vertexing with ALICE in p+p Collisions at ? {S} = 7 {TeV}  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The heavy flavour single electron data from RHIC indicate strong coupling of heavy quarks to the medium. The LHC extends greatly the kinematic range to high transverse momentum which enables new tests of heavy quark jet dynamics. Jets containing beauty hadrons have distinctive properties from other types of jets, which enhance their clear identification. We first introduce a method to preferentially select electrons from beauty hadron decay by reconstructing secondary vertices and show the results of this approach on simulated data. A preliminary look at the heavy flavour electron analysis and the beauty analysis in p+p collisions at ? {S} = 7 {TeV} is also presented.

Measurement of the inclusive jet cross section in ppŻ interactions at s=1.96TeV using a cone-based jet algorithm  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a measurement of the inclusive jet cross section in ppŻ interactions at s=1.96TeV using 385pb-1 of data collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The results are obtained using an improved cone-based jet algorithm (Midpoint). The data cover the jet transverse momentum range from 61 to 620GeV/c, extending the reach by almost 150GeV/c compared with previous measurements at the Tevatron. The results are in good agreement with next-to-leading order perturbative QCD predictions using the CTEQ6.1M parton distribution functions.

Crest - A Balloon-borne Instrument To Measure Cosmic-ray Electrons Above TeV Energies  

Microsoft Academic Search

The observation of high energy (E > 1 TeV) electrons in the cosmic radiation provides important information on the distribution and energetics of local cosmic-ray sources. Galactic cosmic-ray electrons are thought to be shock accelerated in supernova remnants as evident from observations of non-thermal X-rays and TeV gamma rays. Their locally observed energy spectrum above 1 TeV is expected to

Broad host range plasmids.  

PubMed

Plasmids are and will remain important cloning vehicles for biotechnology. They have also been associated with the spread of a number of diseases and therefore are a subject of environmental concern. With the advent of sequencing technologies, the database of plasmids is increasing. It will be of immense importance to identify the various bacterial hosts in which the plasmid can replicate. The present review article describes the features that confer broad host range to the plasmids, the molecular basis of plasmid host range evolution, and applications in recombinant DNA technology and environment.
