Energy distributions and yields of sputtered neutral copper monomers and dimers determined by mass spectrometry. [100-1000 EV range  

SciTech Connect

Secondary neutral mass spectrometry (SNMS) involving positionized sputtered neutrals, has been used to determine the relative yield and energy distribution of neutral Cu/sup 1/ and Cu/sup 2/ particles sputtered from a polycrystal Cu target by normally incident Ar/sup +/ ions with energies ranging 100-250 eV. A magnetically confined arc discharge (plasma) at low Ar pressure, located in the source region of the mass spectrometer, has been used for ion bombardment of the target, and simultaneously for electron impact post-ionization of sputtered neutrals ejected normal to the target. The energy distribution of sputtered neutral atoms was found to exhibit a peak at an ejection energy of 4.2 eV and tail-off above this energy, approximately, as E/sup -1/ /sup 72/. This asymptotic behavior is discussed in view of the available theoretical models, namely the Sigmund-Thompson model of the random collision cascade. The average energies of sputtered atoms show slight increase with the Ar/sup +/ ion bombarding energies. The average energy increases from 7 eV at ion energy of 100 eV to 9 eV at an ion energy of 250 eV. The energy distribution of sputtered neutral Cu/sub 2/ molecules is found to be narrower than that of the ejected atoms and is shifted to smaller ejection energies compared with the corresponding results of Cu/sub 1/ atoms and behave differently as the bombarding Ar/sup +/ ion increased. The ratio of the Cu/sub 2//Cu/sub 1/ (molecule/atom) increased with Ar/sup +/ ion bombarding energies to about 7.4% at 240 eV.

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.

Development of a new technique for measuring the energy of Cosmic Ray Muons in the TeV energy range  

Microsoft Academic Search

Past energy measurements of cosmic ray muons have involved magnetic spectrometers which measure the momentum of muons. This method fails for measuring muons in the TeV range because the error in the angular deflection of the muons in the spectrometers bec ome comparable to the angular deflection at very high energies. A new method for measuring energies of TeV muons

TAIGA detector for cosmic and gamma rays for TeV - EeV energy range  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the past ten years the ground-based imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes have discovered over 150 sources of gamma rays, mostly in the energy range about 0.1 - 10 TeV. In spite of that great success, it still remains unclear what the galactic cosmic ray accelerators are at highest energies, up to the knee at few PeV and above. We are extending the existing Tunka-133 with the HiSCORE detector, planning to add an additional array of underground muon detectors and an array of small-size, wide angle imaging telescopes of 8deg. x 8deg. field of view, operating above the threshold energy of a few TeV. The telescopes are planned operating in coincidence with the HiSCORE wide angle, initially one square km size array and at higher energies also with the Tunka-133 array. This novel coincident technique is aiming to become an inexpensive option for building very large size, nearly background-free very high energy gamma-ray detectors. This complex cosmic ray detector, dubbed TAIGA, will include also underground muon detectors, initially of 100 square meter area, with the aim completing it to 1000 square meters. Strong suppression of hadron-induced background for energies above 100 TeV shall become possible. Along with gamma source hunting we plan also studying cosmic rays in the same energy range.

TeV range detection prospects of short gamma-ray bursts with extended emission episodes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

I will discuss GeV to TeV emission of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) within the refreshed shock and the continuous injection scenarios, motivated by the observation of extended emission in a substantial fraction of short GRBs. In the first model we assume that the central engine emits promptly material with a range of Lorentz factors. When the fastest shell starts to decelerate, it drives a forward shock into the ambient medium and a reverse shock in the ejecta. These shocks are reenergized by the slower and later arriving material. In the second model we assume that there is a continued ejection of material over an extended time, and the continuously arriving new material keeps reenergizing the shocks formed by the preceding shells of ejecta. I calculated the synchrotron and synchrotron self-Compton radiation components for the forward and reverse shocks and find that prospective and current GeV to TeV range instruments such as CTA, HAWC, VERITAS, MAGIC and HESS have a good chance to detect afterglows of the bursts, assuming a reasonable response time.

Parametrization of hadronic cross sections in the range 10-2-102 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Present estimations of proton-proton total cross sections at very high energies are obtained from cosmic rays (>1017 eV): by means of some approximations, it is possible to get a value for the proton-proton total cross section from the knowledge of the proton-air cross section at these energies. Besides, total cross sections are measured with present day high energy colliders up to nearly 2 TeV in the center of mass (~1015 eV in the lab.): several theoretical, empirical or semi-empirical parametrizations, very successful for interpolation at accelerator energies, can then be used to extrapolate the measured value to cosmic ray energies and get a reasonable estimation of cross sections at higher energies (~1017 eV). Here we use a phenomenological model based on the Multiple-Diffraction approach to estimate proton-proton total cross sections at cosmic ray energies: on the basis of a forecasting regression analysis we determine confident error bands. We show that our predictions are highly sensitive to the employed data for extrapolation. When both cross section estimations-from accelerators data and most cosmic rays results-are compared, a disagreement is observed, amounting to more than 10%, showing a discrepancy beyond statistical errors. .

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.

The Cosmic Ray p+He energy spectrum in the 3-3000 TeV energy range measured by ARGO-YBJ  

E-print Network

The ARGO-YBJ experiment is a full coverage air shower detector operated at the Yangbajing International Cosmic Ray Observatory. The detector has been in stable data taking in its full configuration since November 2007 to February 2013. The high altitude and the high segmentation and spacetime resolution offer the possibility to explore the cosmic ray energy spectrum in a very wide range, from a few TeV up to the PeV region. The high segmentation allows a detailed measurement of the lateral distribution, which can be used in order to discriminate showers produced by light and heavy elements. In this work we present the measurement of the cosmic ray light component spectrum in the energy range 3-3000 TeV. The analysis has been carried out by using a two-dimensional unfolding method based on the Bayes' theorem.

Measurement of long-range pseudorapidity correlations and azimuthal harmonics in ?sNN =5.02 TeV proton-lead collisions with the ATLAS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Measurements of two-particle correlation functions and the first five azimuthal harmonics, v1 to v5, are presented, using 28 nb-1 of p +Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of ?sNN =5.02 TeV measured with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Significant long-range "ridgelike" correlations are observed for pairs with small relative azimuthal angle (|?? |2?/3) over the transverse momentum range 0.4range correlations is Fourier decomposed to obtain the harmonics vn as a function of pT and event activity. The extracted vn values for n =2 to 5 decrease with n. The v2 and v3 values are found to be positive in the measured pT range. The v1 is also measured as a function of pT and is observed to change sign around pT?1.5-2.0 GeV and then increase to about 0.1 for pT>4 GeV. The v2(pT), v3(pT), and v4(pT) are compared to the vn coefficients in Pb +Pb collisions at ?sNN =2.76 TeV with similar event multiplicities. Reasonable agreement is observed after accounting for the difference in the average pT of particles produced in the two collision systems.

E-print Network

The ARGO-YBJ experiment is a full-coverage air shower detector located at the Yangbajing Cosmic Ray Observatory (Tibet, People's Republic of China, 4300 m a.s.l.). The high altitude, combined with the full-coverage technique, allows the detection of extensive air showers in a wide energy range and offer the possibility of measuring the cosmic ray proton plus helium spectrum down to the TeV region, where direct balloon/space-borne measurements are available. The detector has been in stable data taking in its full configuration from November 2007 to February 2013. In this paper the measurement of the cosmic ray proton plus helium energy spectrum is presented in the region 3-300 TeV by analyzing the full collected data sample. The resulting spectral index is $\\gamma = -2.64 \\pm 0.01$. These results demonstrate the possibility of performing an accurate measurement of the spectrum of light elements with a ground based air shower detector.

Sensitivity of the ARGO-YBJ strip size spectrum to different models of the primary cosmic ray composition in the energy range 10 - 500 TeV  

E-print Network

The ARGO-YBJ experiment is currently under construction at the Yangbajing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (4300 m a.s.l.). The detector will cover 74 X 78 m^2 with a single layer of Resistive Plate Counters (RPCs), surrounded by a partially instrumented guard ring. Signals from each RPC are picked-up with 80 read out strips 6 cm wide and 62 cm long. These strips allow one to count the particle number of small size air showers. In this paper we discuss the digital response of the detector for showers with core located in a small fiducial area inside the carpet. The results enable us to assess the sensitivity of the strip size spectrum measurement to discriminate between different models of the Primary Cosmic Ray composition in the energy range 10 - 500 TeV.

Measurement of the inclusive 3-jet production differential cross section in proton-proton collisions at 7 TeV and determination of the strong coupling constant in the TeV range  

E-print Network

This paper presents a measurement of the inclusive 3-jet production differential cross section at a proton-proton centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5 inverse femtobarns collected with the CMS detector. The analysis is based on the three jets with the highest transverse momenta. The cross section is measured as a function of the invariant mass of the three jets in a range of 445-3270 GeV and in two bins of the maximum rapidity of the jets up to a value of 2. A comparison between the measurement and the prediction from perturbative QCD at next-to-leading order is performed. Within uncertainties, data and theory are in agreement. The sensitivity of the observable to parameters of the theory such as the parton distribution functions of the proton and the strong coupling constant alpha[S] is studied. A fit to all data points with 3-jet masses larger than 664 GeV gives a value of the strong coupling constant of alpha[S](MZ) = 0.1171 +/- 0.0013 (exp) +0.0073/-0.0047 (theo).

Long-range angular correlations of $\\rm ?$, K and p in p-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV  

E-print Network

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 $0.3 particle are obtained in the pseudorapidity range $|\\eta_{\\rm lab}|particle species. The Fourier decomposition of this structure shows that the second-order coefficients for pions and kaons are similar. The $v_2^p$ is found to be smaller at low $p_{\\rm T}$ and larger at higher $p_{\\rm T}$ than $v_2^pi$, with a crossing occurring at about 2 GeV. 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.

Long-range angular correlations on the near and away side in p-Pb collisions at ?{sNN}=5.02 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Angular correlations between charged trigger and associated particles are measured by the ALICE detector in p-Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV for transverse momentum ranges within 0.5range ridge-like structures, one on the near side and one on the away side, are observed when the per-trigger yield obtained in low-multiplicity events is subtracted from the one in high-multiplicity events. The excess on the near-side is qualitatively similar to that recently reported by the CMS Collaboration, while the excess on the away-side is reported for the first time. The two-ridge structure projected onto azimuthal angle is quantified with the second and third Fourier coefficients as well as by near-side and away-side yields and widths. The yields on the near side and on the away side are equal within the uncertainties for all studied event multiplicity and pT bins, and the widths show no significant evolution with event multiplicity or pT. These findings suggest that the near-side ridge is accompanied by an essentially identical away-side ridge.

Long-range and short-range dihadron angular correlations in central PbPb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center of mass energy of 2.76 TeV  

E-print Network

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

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.

Measurement of long-range pseudorapidity correlations and azimuthal harmonics in $\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 5.02 TeV proton-lead collisions with the ATLAS detector  

E-print Network

Measurements of two-particle correlation functions and the first five azimuthal harmonics, $v_1$ to $v_5$, are presented, using 28 $\\mathrm{nb}^{-1}$ of $p$+Pb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of $\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02$ TeV measured with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Significant long-range ``ridge-like'' correlations are observed for pairs with small relative azimuthal angle ($|\\Delta\\phi|2\\pi/3$) over the transverse momentum range $0.44$ GeV. The $v_2(p_{\\rm T})$, $v_3(p_{\\rm T})$ and $v_4(p_{\\rm T})$ are compared to the $v_n$ coefficients in Pb+Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}} =2.76$ TeV with similar event multiplicities. Reasonable agreement is observed after accounting for the difference in the average $p_{\\rm T}$ of particles produced in the two collision systems.

Search for Scalar Diphoton Resonances in the Mass Range $65-600$ GeV with the ATLAS Detector in $pp$ Collision Data at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 $TeV$

A search for scalar particles decaying via narrow resonances into two photons in the mass range $65-600$ GeV is performed using 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ of $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV $pp$ collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The recently discovered Higgs boson is treated as a background. No significant evidence for an additional signal is observed. The results are presented as limits at the 95 % confidence level on the production cross-section of a scalar boson times branching ratio into two photons, in a fiducial volume where the reconstruction efficiency is approximately independent of the event topology. The upper limits set extend over a considerably wider mass range than previous searches.

Search for Scalar Diphoton Resonances in the Mass Range 65-600 GeV with the ATLAS Detector in pp Collision Data at ?s =8 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for scalar particles decaying via narrow resonances into two photons in the mass range 65-600 GeV is performed using 20.3 fb-1 of ?s =8 TeV pp collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The recently discovered Higgs boson is treated as a background. No significant evidence for an additional signal is observed. The results are presented as limits at the 95% confidence level on the production cross section of a scalar boson times branching ratio into two photons, in a fiducial volume where the reconstruction efficiency is approximately independent of the event topology. The upper limits set extend over a considerably wider mass range than previous searches.

Observation of associated near-side and away-side long-range correlations in sqrt[s(NN)]=5.02 TeV proton-lead collisions with the ATLAS detector.  

PubMed

Two-particle correlations in relative azimuthal angle (?ř) and pseudorapidity (??) are measured in sqrt[s(NN)] = 5.02 TeV p+Pb collisions using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The measurements are performed using approximately 1 ?b(-1) of data as a function of transverse momentum (p(T)) and the transverse energy (?E(T)(Pb)) summed over 3.1 < ? < 4.9 in the direction of the Pb beam. The correlation function, constructed from charged particles, exhibits a long-range (2 < |? ? | < 5) "near-side" (?ř ~ 0) correlation that grows rapidly with increasing ?E(T)(Pb). A long-range "away-side" (?ř ~ ?) correlation, obtained by subtracting the expected contributions from recoiling dijets and other sources estimated using events with small ?E(T)(Pb), is found to match the near-side correlation in magnitude, shape (in ?? and ?ř) and ?E(T)(Pb) dependence. The resultant ?ř correlation is approximately symmetric about ?/2, and is consistent with a dominant cos2?ř modulation for all ?E(T)(Pb) ranges and particle p(T). PMID:23683193

Accelerating Genome Sequencing 100-1000X with FPGAs  

SciTech Connect

The performance of FPGAs on Cray XD1 and SGI/RASC systems (with Virtex-II Pro 50 and Virtex-4 LX160 FPGAs) was evaluated for human genome sequencing using FASTA1 and BLAST2, respectively. Scalable speedups of 100X for a Virtex-4 FPGA (and exceeding 1000X for multiple FPGAs) over a 2.2 GHz Opteron were achieved. Similar FPGA speedups were achieved using BLAST on a SGI/RASC system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Survey and alignment for a 20-TeV on 20-TeV collider  

SciTech Connect

The effects of magnet misalignments in a 20-TeV on 20-TeV anti pp collider are simulated numerically. Both short-range and long-range alignment errors are considered for an example lattice design, and closed-orbit errors are simulated. Finally, closed orbit corrections using a least-squares scheme are performed. Automatic surveying methods are attractive for a multi-TeV collider, because of the large accelerator circumference, the large number of magnets, and the small tunnel cross section. The specific example of an automatic surveying scheme based upon an Inertial Navigation System is discussed, and the most important sources of error are described.

TeV Particle Astrophysics II: Summary comments  

E-print Network

A unifying theme of this conference was the use of different approaches to understand astrophysical sources of energetic particles in the TeV range and above. In this summary I review how gamma-ray astronomy, neutrino astronomy and (to some extent) gravitational wave astronomy provide complementary avenues to understanding the origin and role of high-energy particles in energetic astrophysical sources.

Hadronic origin of the TeV flare of M87 in April 2010  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

M87 is a giant radio galaxy with FR-I morphology. It underwent three episodes of TeV flaring in recent years with the strongest one in April 2010 which was jointly monitored by MAGIC, VERITAS and H.E.S.S. We explain its spectral energy distribution in the energy range 0.3-5 TeV by assuming that the flaring occurs in the innermost region of the jet. In this region the low energy SSC photons serve as the target for the Fermi-accelerated high energy protons of energy TeV to form a delta resonance. The TeV photons are produced from the subsequent decay of the delta resonance to neutral pions. In this scenario the observed TeV flux of April 2010 flare is fitted very well.

Are Cen a and M87 Tev Gamma-Ray Sources?  

E-print Network

In this paper, we identify Cen A and M87, two nearby Fanaroff-Riley I (FRI) radio galaxies, with high-energy-peaked BL Lac-like (HBL-like) objects by investigating their spectral energy distributions (SEDs). The SED peak of Cen A at $\\sim$150 keV, which was generally believed to be the peak of inverse-Compton emission as in the case of 3C 273, is found to be actually the peak of synchrotron emission. The synchrotron emission of M87 peaks in the far UV band. We summarize the properties of $\\gamma$-ray-loud blazars, especially those of TeV BL Lac objects, and generalize them to HBL-like FRI radio galaxies according to the unified scheme of BL Lac objects and FRI radio galaxies. We infer that Cen A may have a peak in its Compton component power output at $\\sim$1 TeV, and that M87 may have a Compton emission peak at $\\sim$0.1 TeV. For Cen A, the estimated TeV $\\gamma$-ray flux during outburst is F(0.25 $-$ 30 TeV) = 6.4$\\times10^{-9}$ erg cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$, and for M87, F(0.25 $-$ 30 TeV) = 1.1$\\times10^{-11}$ erg cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$. Both fluxes are detectable by TeV detectors available today, and hence Cen A and M87 are TeV $\\gamma$-ray source candidates. By investigating the long term variability, we predict that Cen A will undergo an outburst in the near future and will be detectable at the TeV $\\gamma$-ray energy range using the CANGAROO and the German-French-Italian experiment HESS TeV $\\gamma$-ray telescopes.

Relic neutralino surface at a 100 TeV collider  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We map the parameter space for minimal supersymmetric Standard Model neutralino dark matter which freezes out to the observed relic abundance, in the limit that all superpartners except the neutralinos and charginos are decoupled. In this space of relic neutralinos, we show the dominant dark matter annihilation modes, the mass splittings among the electroweakinos, direct detection rates, and collider cross sections. The mass difference between the dark matter and the next-to-lightest neutral and charged states is typically much less than electroweak gauge boson masses. With these small mass differences, the relic neutralino surface is accessible to a future 100 TeV hadron collider, which can discover interneutralino mass splittings down to 1 GeV and thermal relic dark matter neutralino masses up to 1.5 TeV with a few inverse attobarns of luminosity. This coverage is a direct consequence of the increased collider energy: in the Standard Model events with missing transverse momentum in the TeV range have mostly hard electroweak radiation, distinct from the soft radiation shed in compressed electroweakino decays. We exploit this kinematic feature in final states including photons and leptons, tailored to the 100 TeV collider environment.

Prospects for electroweakino discovery at a 100 TeV hadron collider  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate the prospects of discovering split Supersymmetry at a future 100 TeV proton-proton collider through the direct production of electroweakino next-to-lightest- supersymmetric-particles (NLSPs). We focus on signatures with multi-lepton and missing energy: 3?, opposite-sign dileptons and same-sign dileptons. We perform a comprehensive study of different electroweakino spectra. A 100 TeV collider with 3000 /fb data is expected to exclude Higgsino thermal dark matter candidates with m LSP ~ 1 TeV if Wino NLSPs are lighter than about 3.2 TeV. The 3? search usually offers the highest mass reach, which varies in the range of (2-4) TeV depending on scenarios. In particular, scenarios with light Higgsinos have generically simplified parameter dependences. We also demonstrate that, at a 100 TeV collider, lepton collimation becomes a crucial issue for NLSPs heavier than about 2.5 TeV. We finally compare our results with the discovery prospects of gluino pair productions and deduce which SUSY breaking model can be discovered first by electroweakino searches.

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.

SUB-PeV NEUTRINOS FROM TeV UNIDENTIFIED SOURCES IN THE GALAXY  

SciTech Connect

The IceCube collaboration discovery of 28 high-energy neutrinos over the energy range 30 TeV {approx}< {epsilon}{sub {nu}} {approx}< 1 PeV, a 4.3{sigma} 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{sub {nu}} {approx}< 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 Almost-Equal-To 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| {approx}< {+-} 30 Degree-Sign 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.

Study of TeV Variability of MRK 421 from 3 Years of Monitoring with the MILAGRO Observatory  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Milagro experiment was a TeV gamma-ray observatory designed to continuously monitor the overhead sky in the 0.1-100 TeV energy range. It operated from 2000 and 2008 and was characterized by a large field of view (˜ 2 sr) and a high duty cycle (? 90%). Here we report on the long-term monitoring of the blazar Mrk 421 with Milagro over the period from September 21, 2005 to March 15, 2008. We present a study of the TeV variability of the source and provide upper limits for the measured flux for different time scales, ranging from one week up to one year.

Search for resonances and quantum black holes using dijet mass spectra in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV  

E-print Network

A search for resonances and quantum black holes is performed using the dijet mass spectra measured in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 inverse femtobarns. In a search for narrow resonances that couple to quark-quark, quark-gluon, or gluon-gluon pairs, model-independent upper limits, at 95% confidence level, are obtained on the production cross section of resonances, with masses above 1.2 TeV. When interpreted in the context of specific models the limits exclude: string resonances with masses below 5.0 TeV; excited quarks below 3.5 TeV; scalar diquarks below 4.7 TeV; W' bosons below 1.9 TeV or between 2.0 and 2.2 TeV; Z' bosons below 1.7 TeV; and Randall-Sundrum gravitons below 1.6 TeV. A separate search is conducted for narrow resonances that decay to final states including b quarks. The first exclusion limit is set for excited b quarks, with a lower mass limit between 1.2 and 1.6 TeV depending on their decay properties. Searches are also carried out for wide resonances, assuming for the first time width-to-mass ratios up to 30%, and for quantum black holes with a range of model parameters. The wide resonance search excludes axigluons and colorons with mass below 3.6 TeV, and color-octet scalars with mass below 2.5 TeV. Lower bounds between 5.0 and 6.3 TeV are set on the masses of quantum black holes.

Ranges and range fluctuations of Cu N nanoclusters implanted in Cu(111): a molecular dynamics study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In recent years, the interaction of accelerated nanoclusters with surfaces has received increasing interest due to various existing or still anticipated practical applications of cluster beams. One of the fundamental questions is how the nonlinear spike effects (which normally happen during cluster implantation) can affect stopping power and, hence the range (penetration depth) of cluster atoms? In fact, there are two contradictory points of view. On one hand, some theoretical and experimental studies indicate significant enhancement of ranges of implanted cluster atoms with respect to implanted single-atomic ions at the same velocity (so-called "clearing-the-way effect" first described by P. Sigmund and V. Shulga). On the other hand, recent experiments of H.H. Andersen have shown that mean range of atoms of metallic clusters in copper with energy of 10 keV/atom is independent on cluster size, whereas significant enhancement of broadening of implantation profile takes place with increase of cluster size (so-called "within spike diffusion" effect). To extend these studies, in present work we carry out systematic computations of projected range distribution of atoms of Cu N clusters (N=1, 6, 13, 55) implanted into Cu(111) at various energies per one incident atom -within (100. . . 1000) eV/atom. Simulation was done by means of classical Molecular Dynamics (MD) method. It was demonstrated that both mean projected range and range straggling (broadening) of cluster atoms exceeds those of monomer at the same velocity. At the same time, the effect of range enhancement with increase of cluster size is found to be disappeared with growth of energy per one incident atom. On the other hand, the effect of strong enhancement of range straggling with increase of cluster size is not so much energy-dependent. The possible mechanisms responsible on these effects are discussed.

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, 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.

Measurement of Dijet Angular Distributions and Search for Quark Compositeness in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Dijet angular distributions are measured over a wide range of dijet invariant masses in pp collisions at s=7TeV, at the CERN LHC. The event sample, recorded with the CMS detector, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36pb-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 ?+=5.6TeV (?-=6.7TeV) for destructive (constructive) interference is obtained at the 95% confidence level.

TeV Scale Lepton Number Violation and Baryogenesis  

E-print Network

Contrary to the common lore based on naive dimensional analysis, the seesaw scale for neutrino masses can be naturally in the TeV range, with small parameters coming from radiative corrections. We present one such class of type-I seesaw models, based on the left-right gauge group $SU(2)_L\\times SU(2)_R\\times U(1)_{B-L}$ realized at the TeV scale, which fits the observed neutrino oscillation parameters as well as other low energy constraints. We discuss how the small parameters of this scenario can arise naturally from one loop effects. The neutrino fits in this model use quasi-degenerate heavy Majorana neutrinos, as also required to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our Universe via resonant leptogenesis mechanism. We discuss the constraints implied by the dynamics of this mechanism on the mass of the right-handed gauge boson in this class of models with enhanced neutrino Yukawa couplings compared to the canonical seesaw model and find a lower bound of $m_{W_R}\\geq 9.9$ TeV for successful leptogenesi...

Sensitivity to new high-mass states decaying to t t Ż at a 100 TeV collider  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We discuss the sensitivity of a 100 TeV p p collider to heavy particles decaying to top-antitop (t t Ż) final states. This center-of-mass energy, together with an integrated luminosity of 10 ab-1 , can produce heavy particles in the mass range of several tens of teraelectronvolts (TeV). A Monte Carlo study is performed using boosted-top techniques to reduce QCD background for the reconstruction of heavy particles with masses in the range of 8-20 TeV, and various widths. In particular, we study two models that predict heavy states, a model with an extra gauge boson (Z0 ' ) and with a Kaluza-Klein (KK) excitation of the gluon (gKK ). We estimate the sensitive values of ? ×Br of about 2 (4) fb for Z0 ' (gKK ), with a corresponding mass reach of 13 (20) TeV.

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.

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.

Multi- TeV Collider Booster  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We suggest a unique potential that existing high energy lepton colliders serve as a booster for a multi-TeV collider based on the electron beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration. This booster acceleration can easily provide multi-tens of GeV/m acceleration gradient over a focal length of meters. The TeV range energy can then be achieved in several tens of stages with a combined length of the order of 100 m. We have identified two of the most crucial physics issues for this acceleration. One is the emittance degradation by the strong wakefield focus over multiple stages. The other is the electron hose instability which might disrupt the driver beam. A systematic study on these issues taking into account general constraints on beam parameters (Xie et al., Advanced Accelerator Concepts 7, ed. S. Chattopadhyay (AIP, New York 1997), p.233-242.) will be reported. In addition, we also investigate the effect of multiple scattering in the plasma on the trailing beam emittance. The work is supported by US DoE.

We analyze some features of the role that extra dimensions, of radius R in the TeV-1 range, can play in the soft breaking of supersymmetry and the spontaneous breaking of electroweak symmetry. We use a minimal model where the gauge and Higgs boson sector of the MSSM are living in the bulk of five dimensions and the chiral multiplets in

Search for quark compositeness in dijet angular distributions from pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

A search for quark compositeness using dijet angular distributions from pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV is presented. The search has been carried out using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.2 inverse femtobarns, recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. Normalized dijet angular distributions have been measured for dijet invariant masses from 0.4 TeV to above 3 TeV and compared with a variety of contact interaction models, including those which take into account the effects of next-to-leading-order QCD corrections. The data are found to be in agreement with the predictions of perturbative QCD, and lower limits are obtained on the contact interaction scale, ranging from 7.5 up to 14.5 TeV at 95% confidence level.

Range and range rate system  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A video controlled solid state range finding system which requires no radar, high power laser, or sophisticated laser target is disclosed. The effective range of the system is from 1 to about 200 ft. The system includes an opto-electric camera such as a lens CCD array device. A helium neon laser produces a source beam of coherent light which is applied to a beam splitter. The beam splitter applies a reference beam to the camera and produces an outgoing beam applied to a first angularly variable reflector which directs the outgoing beam to the distant object. An incoming beam is reflected from the object to a second angularly variable reflector which reflects the incoming beam to the opto-electric camera via the beam splitter. The first reflector and the second reflector are configured so that the distance travelled by the outgoing beam from the beam splitter and the first reflector is the same as the distance travelled by the incoming beam from the second reflector to the beam splitter. The reference beam produces a reference signal in the geometric center of the camera. The incoming beam produces an object signal at the camera.

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

SciTech Connect

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{sup -}-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.

Identification of the TeV Gamma-Ray Source ARGO J2031+4157 with the Cygnus Cocoon  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The extended TeV gamma-ray source ARGO J2031+4157 (or MGRO J2031+41) is positionally consistent with the Cygnus Cocoon discovered by Fermi-LAT at GeV energies in the Cygnus superbubble. Reanalyzing the ARGO-YBJ data collected from 2007 November to 2013 January, the angular extension and energy spectrum of ARGO J2031+4157 are evaluated. After subtracting the contribution of the overlapping TeV sources, the ARGO-YBJ excess map is fitted with a two-dimensional Gaussian function in a square region of 10° × 10°, finding a source extension ?ext= 1.°8 ą 0.°5. The observed differential energy spectrum is dN/dE = (2.5 ą 0.4) × 10-11(E/1 TeV)-2.6 ą 0.3 photons cm-2 s-1 TeV-1, in the energy range 0.2-10 TeV. The angular extension is consistent with that of the Cygnus Cocoon as measured by Fermi-LAT and the spectrum also shows a good connection with the one measured in the 1-100 GeV energy range. These features suggest to identify ARGO J2031+4157 as the counterpart of the Cygnus Cocoon at TeV energies. The Cygnus Cocoon, located in the star-forming region of Cygnus X, is interpreted as a cocoon of freshly accelerated cosmic rays related to the Cygnus superbubble. The spectral similarity with supernova remnants (SNRs) indicates that the particle acceleration inside a superbubble is similar to that in an SNR. The spectral measurements from 1 GeV to 10 TeV allows for the first time to determine the possible spectrum slope of the underlying particle distribution. A hadronic model is adopted to explain the spectral energy distribution.

Extragalactic background light absorption signal in the TeV gamma-ray spectra of blazars  

E-print Network

Recent observations of the TeV gamma-ray spectra of the two closest active galactic nuclei (AGNs), Markarian 501 (Mrk 501) and Markarian 421 (Mrk 421), by the Whipple and HEGRA collaborations have stimulated efforts to estimate or limit the spectral energy density (SED) of extragalactic background light (EBL) which causes attenuation of TeV photons via pair-production when they travel cosmological distances. In spite of the lack of any distinct cutoff-like feature in the spectra of Mrk 501 and Mrk 421 (in the interval 0.26-10 TeV) which could clearly indicate the presence of such a photon absorption mechanism, we demonstrate that strong EBL attenuation signal (survival probability of 10 TeV photon <10^{-2}) may still be present in the spectra of these AGNs. By estimating the minimal and maximal opacity of the universe to TeV gamma-ray photons, we calculate the visibility range for current and future gamma-ray observatories. Finally, we show that the proposed experiments, VERITAS, HESS, and MAGIC, may even be able to actually measure the EBL SED because their observations extend to the critical 75-150 GeV regime. In this transition region a distinct ``knee-like'' feature should exist in the spectra of blazars, which is invariant with respect to their intrinsic properties. The change of the spectral index and flux amplitude across this knee, if observed for several blazars, will provide missing pieces of information needed to measure EBL in the wavelength range 0.1-30 $\\mu$m.

Expectations for neutron-antineutron oscillation time from TeV scale baryogenesis  

SciTech Connect

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 {Delta}B= 2 baryon number violating process of neutron-antineutron (n-bar 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-bar n oscillation time of 5 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 10} sec. regardless of the quark-lepton unification scale. If this scale is relatively low, in the (200 - 250) TeV range, {tau}{sub n-bar} {sub n} is predicted to be less than 10{sup 10} sec., which is accessible to the next generation of proposed experiments.

The Relic Neutralino Surface at a 100 TeV collider  

E-print Network

We map the parameter space for MSSM neutralino dark matter which freezes out to the observed relic abundance, in the limit that all superpartners except the neutralinos and charginos are decoupled. In this space of relic neutralinos, we show the dominant dark matter annihilation modes, the mass splittings among the electroweakinos, direct detection rates, and collider cross-sections. The mass difference between the dark matter and the next-to-lightest neutral and charged states is typically much less than electroweak gauge boson masses. With these small mass differences, the relic neutralino surface is accessible to a future 100 TeV hadron collider, which can discover inter-neutralino mass splittings down to 1 GeV and thermal relic dark matter neutralino masses up to 1.5 TeV with a few inverse attobarns of luminosity. This coverage is a direct consequence of the increased collider energy: the Standard Model events with missing transverse momentum in the TeV range have mostly hard electroweak radiation, distinct from the soft radiation shed in compressed electroweakino decays. We exploit this kinematic feature in final states including photons and leptons, tailored to the 100 TeV collider environment.

Pure Gravity Mediation with m_{3/2} = 10-100TeV  

E-print Network

Recently, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations reported exciting hints of a Standard Model-like Higgs boson with a mass around 125GeV. Such a Higgs boson mass can be easily obtained in the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model based on the "pure gravity mediation model" where the sfermion masses and the Higgs mass parameters are in tens to hundreds TeV range while the gauginos are in the hundreds GeV to TeV range. In this paper, we discuss detalis of the gaugino mass spectrum in the pure gravity mediation model. We also discuss the signals of the model at the current and future experiments such as cosmic ray observations and the LHC experiments. In particular, we show that the parameter space which is consistent with the thermal leptogenesis can be fully surveyed experimentally in the foreseeable future.

Expected sensitivity studies for gluino and squark searches using the early LHC 13 TeV Run-2 dataset with the ATLAS experiment  

E-print Network

The current searches in the LHC Run-1 dataset have yielded sensitivity to TeV scale gluinos, as well as to third generation squarks in the hundreds of GeV mass range. The discovery reach in Run-2 is expected to be greatly enhanced due to the large increase in the LHC centre-of-mass collision energy from 8 TeV to 13 TeV. This document presents sensitivity studies for gluino pair production and bottom squark pair production with a full simulation of the ATLAS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. Results are shown for an integrated luminosity of 1, 2, 5 and 10 fb$^{-1}$.

Measurement of dijet angular distributions at square root(s) = 1.96 TeV and searches for quark compositeness and extra spatial dimensions.  

PubMed

We present the first measurement of dijet angular distributions in pp collisions at square root(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(-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(-1) scale extra dimensions. For all models considered, we set the most stringent direct limits to date. PMID:20365918

Observation of the TeV gamma-ray source MGRO J1908+06 with ARGO-YBJ  

E-print Network

The extended gamma ray source MGRO J1908+06, discovered by the Milagro air shower detector in 2007, has been observed for \\sim 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. Parametrizing the source shape with a two-dimensional Gauss function we estimate an extension \\sigma = 0.49 \\pm 0.22 degrees, consistent with a previous measurement by the Cherenkov Array H.E.S.S.. The observed energy spectrum is dN/dE = 6.1 \\pm 1.4 \\times 10^-13 (E/4 TeV)^{-2.54 \\pm 0.36} photons cm^-2 s^-1 TeV^-1, in the energy range \\sim 1-20 TeV. The measured gamma ray flux is consistent with the results of the Milagro detector, but is \\sim 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 along 4 years of data taking support the identification...

Neutralino Dark Matter at 14 and 100 TeV  

E-print Network

In recent years the search for dark matter has intensified with competitive bounds coming from collider searches, direct detection, and indirect detection. Collider searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) lack the necessary center-of-mass energy to probe TeV-scale dark matter. It is TeV-scale dark matter, however, that remains viable for many models of supersymmetry. In this paper, we study the reach of a 100 TeV proton-proton collider for neutralino dark matter and compare to 14 TeV LHC projections. We employ a supersymmetric simplified model approach and present reach estimates from monojet searches, soft lepton searches, and disappearing track searches. The searches are applied to pure neutralino spectra, compressed neutralino spectra, and coannihilating spectra. We find a factor of 4-5 improvement in mass reach in going from 14 TeV to 100 TeV. More specifically, we find that given a 1% systematic uncertainty, a 100 TeV collider could exclude winos up to 1.4 TeV and higgsinos up to 850 GeV in the monojet channel. Coannihilation scenarios with gluinos can be excluded with neutralino masses of 6.2 TeV, with stops at 2.8 TeV, and with squarks at 4.0 TeV. Using a soft lepton search, compressed spectra with a chargino-neutralino splitting of $\\Delta m = 20 - 30$ GeV can exclude neutralinos at $\\sim$ 1 TeV. Given a sufficiently long chargino lifetime, the disappearing track search is very effective and we extrapolate current experimental bounds to estimate that a $\\sim$ 2 TeV wino could be discovered and a $\\sim$ 3 TeV wino could be excluded.

Modelling rapid TeV variability of PKS 2155-304  

E-print Network

We present theoretical modelling for the very rapid TeV variability of PKS 2155--304 observed recently by the H.E.S.S. experiment. To explain the light-curve, where at least five flaring events were well observed, we assume five independent components of a jet that are characterized by slightly different physical parameters. An additional, significantly larger component is used to explain the emission of the source at long time scales. This component dominates the emission in the X-ray range, whereas the other components are dominant in the TeV range. The model used for our simulation describes precisely the evolution of the particle energy spectrum inside each component and takes into account light travel time effects. We show that a relatively simple synchrotron self-Compton scenario may explain this very rapid variability. Moreover, we find that absorption of the TeV emission inside the components due to the pair creation process is negligible.

Diffuse neutrinos from extragalactic supernova remnants: Dominating the 100 TeV IceCube flux  

E-print Network

IceCube has measured a diffuse astrophysical flux of TeV-PeV neutrinos. The most plausible sources are unique high energy cosmic ray accelerators like hypernova remnants (HNRs) and remnants from gamma ray bursts in star-burst galaxies, which can produce primary cosmic rays with the required energies and abundance. In this case, however, ordinary supernova remnants (SNRs), which are far more abundant than HNRs, produce a comparable or larger neutrino flux in the ranges up to 100-150 TeV energies, implying a spectral break in the IceCube signal around these energies. The SNRs contribution in the diffuse flux up to these hundred TeV energies provides a natural baseline and then constrains the expected PeV flux.

An upper limit to the infrared background from observations of TeV gamma rays  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An upper bound to the energy density of infrared background radiation is derived from considering the effect of gamma-gamma interactions on the observed TeV gamma-ray spectrum of the active galaxy Markarian 421. This upper bound proves to be the most restrictive for the wavelength range of 10-12 micrometers. These constraints are presently limited by the uncertainty of extrapolating the source spectrum from 5 to 500 GeV. Observations in the regime less than 100 GeV would significantly improve these limits, allowing for a wide range of IR production models to be constrained.

TeV Scale Quantum Gravity and Mirror Supernovae as Sources of Gamma Ray Bursts  

E-print Network

Mirror matter models have been suggested recently as an explanation of neutrino puzzles and microlensing anomalies. We show that mirror supernovae can be a copious source of energetic gamma rays if one assumes that the quantum gravity scale is in the TeV range. We show that under certain assumptions plausible in the mirror models, the gamma energies could be degraded to the 10 MeV range (and perhaps even further) so as to provide an explanation of observed gamma ray bursts. This mechanism for the origin of the gamma ray bursts has the advantage that it neatly avoids the ``baryon load problem''.

Constraints on TeV Scale Majorana Neutrino Phenomenology from the Vacuum Stability of the Higgs  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The vacuum stability condition of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs potential with mass in the range of 124-127 GeV puts an upper bound on the Dirac mass of the neutrinos. We study this constraint with the right-handed neutrino masses up to TeV scale. The heavy neutrinos contribute to ?L = 2 processes like neutrinoless double beta decay and same-sign-dilepton (SSD) production in the colliders. The vacuum stability criterion also restricts the light-heavy neutrino mixing and constrains the branching ratio (BR) of lepton flavor-violating process, like ??e? mediated by the heavy neutrinos. We show that neutrinoless double beta decay with a lifetime 1025 years can be observed if the lightest heavy neutrino mass is <4.5 TeV. We show that the vacuum stability condition and the experimental bound on ??e ? together put a constrain on heavy neutrino mass MR>3.3 TeV. Finally we show that the observation of SSDs associated with jets at the LHC needs much larger luminosity than available at present. We have estimated the possible maximum cross-section for this process at the LHC and show that with an integrated luminosity 100 fb-1 it may be possible to observe the SSD signals as long as MR < 400 GeV.

The Relic Neutralino Surface at a 100 TeV collider  

E-print Network

We map the parameter space for MSSM neutralino dark matter which freezes out to the observed relic abundance, in the limit that all superpartners except the neutralinos and charginos are decoupled. In this space of relic neutralinos, we show the dominant dark matter annihilation modes, the mass splittings among the electroweakinos, direct detection rates, and collider cross-sections. The mass difference between the dark matter and the next-to-lightest neutral and charged states is typically much less than electroweak gauge boson masses. With these small mass differences, the relic neutralino surface is accessible to a future 100 TeV hadron collider, which can discover inter-neutralino mass splittings down to 1~GeV and thermal relic dark matter neutralino masses up to 1.5 TeV with a few inverse attobarns of luminosity. This coverage is a direct consequence of the increased collider energy: the Standard Model events with missing transverse momentum in the TeV range have mostly hard electroweak radiation, distin...

ANISOTROPY OF TeV COSMIC RAYS AND OUTER HELIOSPHERIC BOUNDARIES  

SciTech Connect

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.

A Structured Leptonic Jet Model of the "Orphan" TeV Gamma-Ray Flares in TeV Blazars  

E-print Network

The emission spectra of TeV blazars extend up to tens of TeV and the emission mechanism of the TeV $\\gamma$-rays is explained by synchrotron self-Compton scattering in leptonic models. In these models the time variabilities of X-rays and TeV $\\gamma$-rays are correlated. However, recent observations of 1ES 1959+650 and Mrk 421 have found the ``orphan'' TeV $\\gamma$-ray flares, i.e., TeV $\\gamma$-ray flares without simultaneous X-ray flares. In this paper we propose a model for the ``orphan'' TeV $\\gamma$-ray flares, employing an inhomogeneous leptonic jet model. After a primary flare that accompanies flare-up both in X-rays and TeV $\\gamma$-rays, radiation propagates in various directions in the comoving frame of the jet. When a dense region in the jet receives the radiation, X-rays are scattered by relativistic electrons/positrons to become TeV $\\gamma$-rays. These $\\gamma$-ray photons are observed as an ``orphan'' TeV $\\gamma$-ray flare. The observed delay time between the primary and ``orphan'' flares is about two weeks and this is accounted for in our model for parameters such as $\\Gamma = 20$, $d = 4 \\times 10^{17}$cm, $\\alpha = 3$, and $\\eta = 1$, where $\\Gamma$ is the bulk Lorentz factor of the jet, $d$ is the distance between the central black hole and the primary flare site, $\\alpha/\\Gamma$ is the angle between the jet axis and the direction of the motion of the dense region that scatters incoming X-rays produced by the primary flare, and $\\eta/\\Gamma$ is the angle between the jet axis and the line of sight.

Measurement of the ratio of the 3-jet to 2-jet cross sections in pp collisions at ?{s}=7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A measurement of the ratio of the inclusive 3-jet to 2-jet cross sections as a function of the total jet transverse momentum, HT, in the range 0.2TeV is presented. The data have been collected at a proton-proton centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb-1. Comparisons are made between the data and the predictions of different QCD-based Monte Carlo models for multijet production. All models considered in this study are consistent with the data for HT>0.5 TeV. This measurement extends to an HT range that has not been explored before.

Derivation of a Relation for the Steepening of TeV Selected Blazar Gamma-Ray Spectra with Energy and Redshift  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

We derive a relation for the steepening of blazar gamma-ray spectra between the multi-GeV Fermi energy range and the TeV energy range observed by atmospheric Cerenkov telescopes. The change in spectral index is produced by two effects: (1) an intrinsic steepening, independent of redshift, owing to the properties of emission and absorption in the source, and (2) a redshift-dependent steepening produced by intergalactic pair production interactions of blazar gamma-rays with low energy photons of the "intergalactic background light" (IBL). Given this relation, with good enough data on the mean gamma-ray SED of TeV Selected BL Lacs, the redshift evolution of the IBL can, in principle, be determined independently of stellar evolution models. We apply our relation to the results of new Fermi observations of TeV selected blazars.

Anisotropies in TeV Cosmic Rays Related to the Local Interstellar Magnetic Field from the IBEX Ribbon  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) observes enhanced Energetic Neutral Atoms (ENAs) emission in the keV energy range from a narrow (~20° wide) "ribbon" in the sky that appears to be centered on the direction of the local interstellar (LIS) magnetic field. The Milagro collaboration, the As? collaboration and the IceCube observatory have recently made global maps of cosmic ray fluxes in the TeV energy range, revealing anisotropic structures ordered in part by the local interstellar magnetic field and the interstellar flow. This paper following from a recent publication in Science makes the link between these disparate observations by developing a simple model of the magnetic structure surrounding the heliosphere in the Local Interstellar Medium (LISM) that is consistent with both IBEX ENA fluxes and TeV cosmic ray anisotropies. The model also employs the revised velocity direction of the LIC derived from neutral He observations by IBEX. By modeling the propagation of cosmic rays through this magnetic field structure, we specifically show that (1) the large-scale TeV anisotropy provides a roughly consistent orientation for the local interstellar magnetic field at the center of the IBEX Ribbon and corroborates the ~ 3 ?G magnitude of the local interstellar magnetic field derived from IBEX observations of the global heliosphere; (2) and small-scale structures in cosmic rays (over < 30° angular scales) are influenced by the interstellar field interaction with the heliosphere at energies < 10 TeV. Thus, we provide a link between IBEX ENA observations, IBEX neutral observations of interstellar He, and TeV cosmic ray anisotropies, which are strongly influenced by the interactions between the local interstellar magnetic field, the flow of the local interstellar plasma, and the global heliosphere.

Extending Higgs Inflation with TeV Scale New Physics  

E-print Network

Higgs inflation is among the most economical and predictive inflation models, although the original Higgs inflation requires tuning the Higgs or top mass away from its current experimental value by more than $2\\sigma$ deviations, and generally gives a negligible tensor-to-scalar ratio $r \\sim 10^{-3}$ (if away from the vicinity of critical point). In this work, we construct a minimal extension of Higgs inflation, by adding only two new weak-singlet particles at TeV scale, a vector-quark $T$ and a real scalar $S$. The presence of singlets $(T, S)$ significantly impact the renormalization group running of the Higgs boson self-coupling. With this, our model provides a wider range of the tensor-to-scalar ratio $r = O(0.1 - 10^{-3})$, consistent with the favored $r$ values by either BICEP2 or Planck data, while keeping the successful prediction of the spectral index $ n_s \\simeq 0.96 $. It further allows the Higgs and top masses to fully fit the collider measurements. We also discuss implications for searching the predicted TeV-scale vector-quark $T$ and scalar $S$ at the LHC and future high energy pp colliders.

Internal ?? Opacity in Active Galactic Nuclei and the Consequences for the TeV Observations of M87 and Cen A  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Low-luminosity active galactic nuclei (LLAGNs) possess the characteristic features of more luminous active galactic nuclei (AGNs) but exhibit a much lower nuclear H? luminosity (L H? < 1040 erg s-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 ? radiation up to TeV (1012 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 ~20 TeV within the allowed parameter range, the optical depth in Cen A is Gt1, leading to an absorption of TeV photons that might be produced near the central black hole. These results imply either that the TeV ? 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.

Measurement of the Inclusive Jet Cross Section in pp Collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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 34pb-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 pT ever observed and, within the experimental and theoretical uncertainties, is generally in agreement with next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD predictions.

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.

Analytical representation for pp elastic scattering at 7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

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 B{sub R} and B{sub I}, treated as independent quantities, influence the whole t-range and the determination of the total cross section {sigma}. The treatment includes extension to the universal perturbative tail at large |t|. Consistency is obtained in the values of {sigma}, ratio {rho}, B{sub R} and B{sub I} determined in forward and full-t approaches.

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

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}{sup +}}/N{sub {mu}{sup -}}=1.374{+-}0.004(stat){sub -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.

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

SciTech Connect

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 inverse picobarns. The data are found to be in good agreement with the predictions of perturbative QCD, and yield no evidence of quark compositeness.

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.

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.

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We explore the discovery potential of doubly charged Higgs bosons (?ąą) 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 ?ąą for a small vacuum expectation value (?105eV) of the triplet scalar ?=(?++,?+,?0) of mass ?1TeV. To be specific, for a mass range of 200-1000 GeV of ?ąą, the like-sign dilepton signal can be detected at CERN LHC at a center of mass energy 14 TeV with an integrated luminosity, say, ?30fb-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.

Two-particle Bose--Einstein correlations in $pp$ collisions at $\\mathbf {\\sqrt{s} =}$ 0.9 and 7 TeV measured with the ATLAS detector  

E-print Network

The paper presents studies of Bose--Einstein Correlations (BEC) for pairs of like-sign charged particles measured in the kinematic range $p_{\\rm T} >$ 100 MeV and $|\\eta|<$ 2.5 in proton--proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of 0.9 and 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The integrated luminosities are approximately 7 $\\mu$b$^{-1}$, 190 $\\mu$b$^{-1}$ and 12.4 nb$^{-1}$ for 0.9 TeV, 7 TeV minimum-bias and 7 TeV high-multiplicity data samples, respectively. The multiplicity dependence of the BEC parameters characterizing the correlation strength and the correlation source size are investigated for charged-particle multiplicities of up to 240. A saturation effect in the multiplicity dependence of the correlation source size is observed using the high-multiplicity 7 TeV data sample. The dependence of the BEC parameters on the average transverse momentum of the particle pair is also investigated.

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

E-print Network

The production of the prompt charm mesons $D^0$, $D^+$, $D^{*+}$, and their antiparticles, was measured with the ALICE detector in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC, at a centre-of-mass energy $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}=2.76$ TeV per nucleon--nucleon collision. The $\\pt$-differential production yields in the range $2TeV and scaled to $\\sqrt{s}=2.76$ TeV. 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.

Charged particle multiplicities in pp interactions at sqrt(s) = 0.9, 2.36, and 7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

Measurements of primary charged hadron multiplicity distributions are presented for non-single-diffractive events in proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of sqrt(s) = 0.9, 2.36, and 7 TeV, in five pseudorapidity ranges from |eta|<0.5 to |eta|<2.4. The data were collected with the minimum-bias trigger of the CMS experiment during the LHC commissioning runs in 2009 and the 7 TeV run in 2010. The multiplicity distribution at sqrt(s) = 0.9 TeV is in agreement with previous measurements. At higher energies the increase of the mean multiplicity with sqrt(s) is underestimated by most event generators. The average transverse momentum as a function of the multiplicity is also presented. The measurement of higher-order moments of the multiplicity distribution confirms the violation of Koba-Nielsen-Olesen scaling that has been observed at lower energies.

Host Range and Characterization of Sunflower mosaic virus.  

PubMed

ABSTRACT Sunflower mosaic is caused by a putative member of the family Potyviridae. Sunflower mosaic virus (SuMV) was characterized in terms of host range, physical and biological characteristics, and partial nucleotide and amino acid sequence. Cells infected with SuMV had cytoplasmic inclusion bodies typical of potyviruses. Of 74 genera tested, only species in Helianthus, Sanvitalia, and Zinnia, all Asteraceae, were systemic hosts. Commercial sunflower hybrids from the United States, Europe, and South Africa were all equally susceptible. The mean length of purified particles is approximately 723 nm. The virus was transmitted by Myzus persicae and Capitphorus elaegni, and also was seedborne in at least one sunflower cultivar. Indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay tests with a broad-spectrum potyvirus monoclonal antibody were strongly positive. SuMV-specific polyclonal antisera recognized SuMV and, to a lesser extent, Tobacco etch virus (TEV). When tested against a panel of 31 potyvirus-differentiating monoclonal antibodies, SuMV was distinct from any potyvirus previously tested. SuMV shared four epitopes with TEV, but had a reaction profile more similar to Tulip breaking virus (TBV). SuMV did not possess epitopes unique only to TBV. The predicted coat protein had a molecular weight of 30.5 kDa. The 3' end of the virus genome was cloned and sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis of the coat protein amino acid sequence revealed that SuMV is a distinct species within the family Potyviridae, most closely related to TEV. PMID:18943264

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=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

Search for new resonances decaying via WZ to leptons in proton-proton collisions at ?{ s} = 8TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search is performed in proton-proton collisions at ?{ s} = 8 TeV for exotic particles decaying via WZ to fully leptonic final states with electrons, muons, and neutrinos. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.5 fb-1. No significant excess is observed above the expected standard model background. Upper bounds at 95% confidence level are set on the production cross section of a W? boson as predicted by an extended gauge model, and on the W? WZ coupling. The expected and observed mass limits for a W? boson, as predicted by this model, are 1.55 and 1.47 TeV, respectively. Stringent limits are also set in the context of low-scale technicolor models under a range of assumptions for the model parameters.

Global anisotropies in TeV cosmic rays related to the Sun's local galactic environment from IBEX.  

PubMed

Observations with the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) have shown enhanced energetic neutral atom (ENA) emission from a narrow, circular ribbon likely centered on the direction of the local interstellar medium (LISM) magnetic field. Here, we show that recent determinations of the local interstellar velocity, based on interstellar atom measurements with IBEX, are consistent with the interstellar modulation of high-energy (tera-electron volts, TeV) cosmic rays and diffusive propagation from supernova sources revealed in global anisotropy maps of ground-based high-energy cosmic-ray observatories (Milagro, As?, and IceCube). Establishing a consistent local interstellar magnetic field direction using IBEX ENAs at hundreds to thousands of eV and galactic cosmic rays at tens of TeV has wide-ranging implications for the structure of our heliosphere and its interactions with the LISM, which is particularly important at the time when the Voyager spacecraft are leaving our heliosphere.

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.

SAR ambiguous range suppression.

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.

Long-Distance Dispersal via Ocean Currents Connects Omani Clownfish Populations throughout Entire Species Range  

PubMed Central

Dispersal is a crucial ecological process, driving population dynamics and defining the structure and persistence of populations. Measuring demographic connectivity between discreet populations remains a long-standing challenge for most marine organisms because it involves tracking the movement of pelagic larvae. Recent studies demonstrate local connectivity of reef fish populations via the dispersal of planktonic larvae, while biogeography indicates some larvae must disperse 100–1000 s kilometres. To date, empirical measures of long-distance dispersal are lacking and the full scale of dispersal is unknown. Here we provide the first measure of long-distance dispersal in a coral reef fish, the Omani clownfish Amphiprion omanensis, throughout its entire species range. Using genetic assignment tests we demonstrate bidirectional exchange of first generation migrants, with subsequent social and reproductive integration, between two populations separated by over 400 km. Immigration was 5.4% and 0.7% in each region, suggesting a biased southward exchange, and matched predictions from a physically-coupled dispersal model. This rare opportunity to measure long-distance dispersal demonstrates connectivity of isolated marine populations over distances of 100 s of kilometres and provides a unique insight into the processes of biogeography, speciation and adaptation.

X-Ray Counterparts of Puzzling Gev-Tev Sources  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We propose to look for X-ray counterparts of the extended TeV source HESS J1616-508 that may also have been detected with Fermi at GeV energies. The nature of the source and the connection between the TeV source and the nearby GeV sources are unknown. It has been suggested that it may be a relic plerion powered by the offset PSR J1617-5055, but a deep Chandra observation of this pulsar and its wind nebula has not confirmed this hypothesis. To understand the nature of this long-standing "dark accelerator", we propose to observe the GeV sources (which could be young pulsars) and another nearby young pulsar (J1614-5048) to check whether or not they could supply relativistic particles and power the TeV source. We will also explore the nature of the GeV sources.

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.

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.

Search for TeV ?-ray emission from blazar 1ES1218+304 with TACTIC telescope during March-April 2013  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper, we present results of TeV ?-ray observations of the high synchrotron peaked BL Lac object 1ES 1218+304 (z = 0.182) with the TACTIC (TeV Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope with Imaging Camera). The observations are primarily motivated by the unusually hard GeV-TeV spectrum of the source despite its relatively large redshift. The source is observed in the TeV energy range with the TACTIC from March 1, 2013 to April 15, 2013 (MJD 56352-56397) for a total observation time of 39.62 h and no evidence of TeV ?-ray activity is found from the source. The corresponding 99% confidence level upper limit on the integral flux above a threshold energy of 1.1 TeV is estimated to be 3.41 ×10-12 photons cm-2 s-1 (i.e. <23% Crab Nebula flux) assuming a power law differential energy spectrum with photon index 3.0, as previously observed by the MAGIC and VERITAS telescopes. For the study of multi-wavelength emission from the source, we use nearly simultaneous optical, UV and X-ray data collected by the UVOT and XRT instruments on board the Swift satellite and high energy ?-ray data collected by the Large Area Telescope on board the Fermi satellite. We also use radio data at 15 GHz from OVRO 40 m telescope in the same period. No significant increase of activity is detected from radio to TeV ?-rays from 1ES1218+304 during the period from March 1, 2013 to April 15, 2013.

Is the Universe transparent to TeV photons?  

E-print Network

If Lorentz invariance is broken at an energy scale Eq, as has recently been suggested in the context of attempts to quantize gravity, the kinematics of photon-photon collisions would be profoundly affected at lower energies. Specifically, electron-positron pair creation on soft photons may be forbidden at photon energies as low as 30 TeV times square root of (Eq/10**17 GeV) and the Universe would then be transparent to high energy photons. The proposition that Lorentz invariance is broken may be falsified by the techniques of TeV astronomy.

Unified TeV scale picture of baryogenesis and dark matter.  

PubMed

We present a simple extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model which provides a unified picture of cosmological baryon asymmetry and dark matter. Our model introduces a gauge singlet field N and a color triplet field X which couple to the right-handed quark fields. The out-of-equilibrium decay of the Majorana fermion N mediated by the exchange of the scalar field X generates adequate baryon asymmetry for MN approximately 100 GeV and MX approximately TeV. The scalar partner of N (denoted N1) is naturally the lightest SUSY particle as it has no gauge interactions and plays the role of dark matter. The model is experimentally testable in (i) neutron-antineutron oscillations with a transition time estimated to be around 10(10)sec, (ii) discovery of colored particles X at LHC with mass of order TeV, and (iii) direct dark matter detection with a predicted cross section in the observable range.

Gamma-ray Observations with Swift and their Impact on the TeV Community  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Swift gamma-ray burst explorer was launched on Nov. 20, 2004 from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The first instrument onboard became fully operational less than a month later. Since that time the Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) on Swift has detected more than 150 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), most of which have also been observed within two minutes by the Swift narrow-field instruments: the X-Ray Telescope (XRT) and the Ultra-Violet and Optical Telescope (UVOT). Swift trigger notices are distributed worldwide within seconds of the trigger through the Gamma-ray burst Coordinates Network (GCN) and a substantial fraction of GRBs have been followed up by ground and space-based telescopes, ranging in wavelength from radio to TeV. Results have included the first rapid localization of a short GRB and further validation of the theory that short and long bursts have different origins; detailed observations of the power-law decay of burst afterglows leading to an improved understanding of the fireball and afterglow models; and detection of the most distant GRB ever found. Swift is also a sensitive X-ray observatory with capabilities to monitor galactic and extragalactic transients on a daily basis, carry out the first all-sky hard X-ray survey since HEAO-1, and study in detail the spectra of X-ray transients. The talk will emphasize the connection between Swift/BAT GRB observations and source monitoring and TeV observations.

Two Loop Unification of Non-SUSY SO(10) GUT with TeV Scalars  

E-print Network

In this paper we examine gauge coupling unification at the two loop level in the the non-SUSY SO(10) grand unified theory proposed by Babu and Mohapatra \\cite{BM}. This GUT, which breaks down to the standard model in a single step, has the distinguishing feature of containing non-standard model scalars at the TeV scale. This leads to a plethora of interesting effects in the TeV range, most prominently predicting the possibility of discovering new particles at the LHC in run 2. This model also gives rise to measurable proton decay, neutron-antineutron oscillations, provides a mechanism for baryogenesis, and contains potential dark matter candidates. In this paper, we compute the two loop beta function and show that this model unifies to two loop order around $10^{15}$ GeV. We then compute the proton lifetime and argue that threshold effects place it comfortably above the Super Kamiokande limit. In this paper, we demonstrate that this model passes the baseline for physical plausibility and therefore is worth st...

LHC Top Partner Searches Beyond the 2 TeV Mass Region  

E-print Network

We propose a new search strategy for heavy top partners at the early stages of the LHC run-II, based on lepton-jet final states. Our results show that final states containing a boosted massive jet and a hard lepton, in addition to a top quark and possibly a forward jet, offer a new window to both detecting and measuring top partners of mass $\\sim 2$ TeV. Our resulting signal significance is comparable or superior to the same sign di-lepton channels for top partner masses heavier than roughly 1 TeV. Unlike the di-lepton channel, the selection criteria we propose are sensitive both to $5/3$ and $1/3$ charge top partners and allow for full reconstruction of the resonance mass peak. Our search strategy utilizes a simplified $b$-tagging procedure and the Template Overlap Method to tag the massive boosted objects and reject the corresponding backgrounds. In addition, we propose a new, pileup insensitive method, to tag forward jets which characterize our signal events. We consider full effects of pileup contamination at 50 interactions per bunch crossing. We demonstrate that even in the most pessimistic pileup scenarios, the significance we obtain is sufficient to claim a discovery over a wide range of top partner parameters. While we focus on the minimal natural composite Higgs model, the results of this paper can be easily translated into bounds on any heavy partner with a $t\\bar{t}Wj$ final state topology.

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

SciTech Connect

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 (set-membership sign) (40 deg.,100 deg.) and latitude vertical bar b vertical bar <5 deg. Under the assumption of a simple power law spectrum, with no cutoff in the EGRET-Milagro energy range, the measured integral flux is {phi}{sub {gamma}}(>3.5 TeV)=(6.4{+-}1.4{+-}2.1)x10{sup -11} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1} sr{sup -1}. This flux is consistent with an extrapolation of the EGRET spectrum between 1 and 30 GeV in this galactic region.

Telemetry-based ranging

This paper presents a new two-way, telemetry-based ranging architecture. The scheme uses a conventional uplink ranging signal, but the downlink ranging signal is replaced with an asynchronous telemetry signal whose timing relative to the acquired uplink signal is measured. This measurement, along with the acquired timing of the received telemetry, enables the round-trip light-time to be computed on the ground.

Physics performances for Z' searches at 3 TeV and 1.5 TeV CLIC  

E-print Network

Extra neutral gauge bosons (Z') are predicted in many extensions of the Standard Model (SM). In the minimal anomaly-free Z' model (AFZ'), the phenomenology is controlled by only three parameters beyond the SM ones, the Z' mass and two effective coupling constants g'_Y and g'_{BL}. We study the Z' 5-sigma discovery potential in e+e- collisions at 1.4 and 3 TeV CLIC. Assuming LHC discovers a Z' of 5 TeV mass, the expected accuracies on the Z'mu+mu- couplings are presented. We discuss also the requirements on detector performance and beam polarization.

KS0 and ? Production in Pb-Pb Collisions at sNN=2.76TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ALICE measurement of KS0 and ? production at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76TeV is presented. The transverse momentum (pT) spectra are shown for several collision centrality intervals and in the pT range from 0.4GeV/c (0.6GeV/c for ?) to 12GeV/c. The pT dependence of the ?/KS0 ratios exhibits maxima in the vicinity of 3GeV/c, and the positions of the maxima shift towards higher pT with increasing collision centrality. The magnitude of these maxima increases by almost a factor of three between most peripheral and most central Pb-Pb collisions. This baryon excess at intermediate pT is not observed in pp interactions at s=0.9TeV and at s=7TeV. Qualitatively, the baryon enhancement in heavy-ion collisions is expected from radial flow. However, the measured pT spectra above 2GeV/c progressively decouple from hydrodynamical-model calculations. For higher values of pT, models that incorporate the influence of the medium on the fragmentation and hadronization processes describe qualitatively the pT dependence of the ?/KS0 ratio.

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.

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.

Outburst of TeV photons from Markarian 421  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Markarian 421, an active galactic nucleus (AGN) of the BL Lacertae type, is the closest Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET)-detected AGN. It has been monitored by the Whipple Observatory very high energy gamma-ray telescope since its discovery at TeV energies, for approximately 90 nights, totaling 130 hours of observation. Observations from 1993 December 23 to 1994 May 10 showed an average sourve flux only half that of its 1992 discovery level. However, observations on 1994 May 14 and 15 show an increase in flux above this quiescent level by a factor of approximately 10. The timescale of this increase provides the best geometric constraint on the extent of TeV photon emission regions within AGNs. The observation of the high TeV flux occurred 1 day prior to the observation by ASCA of a very high 2-10 keV X-ray flux. This strong TeV outburst is reminiscent of the behavior seen for the stronger 100 MeV-GeV EGRET sources (e.g. 3C 279) but was not anticipated in view of the fact that the six EGRET observations of Mrk 421 from 1991 June to 1993 July showed no evidence for variability.

Hybrid inflation and baryogenesis at the TeV scale  

Microsoft Academic Search

We consider the construction of inverted hybrid inflation models in which the vacuum energy during inflation is on the TeV scale, and the inflaton couples to the Higgs field. Such models are of interest in the context at some recently proposed models of electroweak baryogenesis. We demonstrate how constraints on these models arise from quantum corrections, and how self-consistent examples

Observation of TeV gamma-rays from the unidentified source HESS J1841-055 with the ARGO-YBJ experiment  

E-print Network

We report the observation of a very high energy \\gamma-ray source, whose position is coincident with HESS J1841-055. This source has been observed for 4.5 years by the ARGO-YBJ experiment from November 2007 to July 2012. Its emission is detected with a statistical significance of 5.3 standard deviations. Parameterizing the source shape with a two-dimensional Gaussian function we estimate an extension \\sigma=(0.40(+0.32,-0.22}) degree, consistent with the HESS measurement. The observed energy spectrum is dN/dE =(9.0-+1.6) x 10^{-13}(E/5 TeV)^{-2.32-+0.23} photons cm^{-2} s^{-1} TeV^{-1}, in the energy range 0.9-50 TeV. The integral \\gamma-ray flux above 1 TeV is 1.3-+0.4 Crab units, which is 3.2-+1.0 times the flux derived by HESS. The differences in the flux determination between HESS and ARGO-YBJ, and possible counterparts at other wavelengths are discussed.

Measurement of charged jet production cross sections and nuclear modification in p-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_\\rm{NN}} = 5.02$ TeV  

E-print Network

Charged jet production cross sections in p-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC are presented. Using the anti-$k_{\\rm T}$ algorithm, jets have been reconstructed in the central rapidity region from charged particles with resolution parameters $R = 0.2$ and $R = 0.4$. The reconstructed jets have been corrected for detector effects and the underlying event background. To calculate the nuclear modification factor, $R_{\\rm pPb}$, of charged jets in p-Pb collisions, a pp reference was constructed by scaling previously measured charged jet spectra at $\\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV. In the transverse momentum range $20 \\le p_{\\rm T,ch\\ jet} \\le 120$ GeV/$c$, $R_{\\rm pPb}$ is found to be consistent with unity, indicating the absence of strong nuclear matter effects on jet production. Major modifications to the radial jet structure are probed via the ratio of jet production cross sections reconstructed with the two different resolution parameters. This ratio is found to be similar to the measurement in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 7$ TeV and to the expectations from PYTHIA pp simulations and NLO pQCD calculations at $\\sqrt{s_{\\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV.

Preliminary error budget for an optical ranging system: Range, range rate, and differenced range observables  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Future missions to the outer solar system or human exploration of Mars may use telemetry systems based on optical rather than radio transmitters. Pulsed laser transmission can be used to deliver telemetry rates of about 100 kbits/sec with an efficiency of several bits for each detected photon. Navigational observables that can be derived from timing pulsed laser signals are discussed. Error budgets are presented based on nominal ground stations and spacecraft-transceiver designs. Assuming a pulsed optical uplink signal, two-way range accuracy may approach the few centimeter level imposed by the troposphere uncertainty. Angular information can be achieved from differenced one-way range using two ground stations with the accuracy limited by the length of the available baseline and by clock synchronization and troposphere errors. A method of synchronizing the ground station clocks using optical ranging measurements is presented. This could allow differenced range accuracy to reach the few centimeter troposphere limit.

Proton-proton elastic scattering has been measured by the TOTEM experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at $\\sqrt{s} = 7 $ TeV in special runs with the Roman Pot detectors placed as close to the outgoing beam as seven times the transverse beam size. The differential cross-section measurements are reported in the |t|-range of 0.36 to 2.5 GeV^2. Extending the range of data to low t values from 0.02 to 0.33 GeV^2,and utilizing the luminosity measurements of CMS, the total proton-proton cross section at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV is measured to be (98.3 +- 0.2(stat) +- 2.8(syst)) mb.

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.

Performance of the ATLAS muon trigger in pp collisions at TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The performance of the ATLAS muon trigger system is evaluated with proton-proton collision data collected in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV. It is primarily evaluated using events containing a pair of muons from the decay of bosons. The efficiency of the single-muon trigger is measured for muons with transverse momentum GeV, with a statistical uncertainty of less than 0.01 % and a systematic uncertainty of 0.6 %. The range for efficiency determination is extended by using muons from decays of mesons, bosons, and top quarks. The muon trigger shows highly uniform and stable performance. The performance is compared to the prediction of a detailed simulation.

Upsilon production cross section in pp collisions at ?s=7??TeV  

DOE PAGESBeta

The ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) production cross sections in proton-proton collisions at ?s=7 TeV are measured using a data sample collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.1ą0.3 pb?š. Integrated over the rapidity range |y|+0.61-0.42ą0.81 nb, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is associated with the estimation of the integrated luminosity of the data sample. This cross section is obtained assuming unpolarized ?(1S) production. With the assumption of fully transverse or fully longitudinal production polarization, the measured cross section changes by about 20%. We also report the measurement of the ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) differential cross sections as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity.

Charged kaon femtoscopic correlations in pp collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Correlations of two charged identical kaons (KchKch) are measured in pp collisions at s=7TeV by the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). One-dimensional KchKch correlation functions are constructed in three multiplicity and four transverse momentum ranges. The KchKch femtoscopic source parameters R and ? are extracted. The KchKch correlations show a slight increase of femtoscopic radii with increasing multiplicity and a slight decrease of radii with increasing transverse momentum. These trends are similar to the ones observed for ?? and Ks0Ks0 correlations in pp and heavy-ion collisions. However at high multiplicities, there is an indication that the one-dimensional correlation radii for charged kaons are larger than those for pions in contrast to what was observed in heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider.

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.

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.

The Energy Spectrum of Atmospheric Neutrinos between 2 and 200 TeV with the AMANDA-II Detector  

SciTech Connect

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.

The Parsec-Scale Structure of the Newer TeV Blazars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We expand our previous studies of the parsec-scale structure of TeV blazars by presenting firstepoch images from VLBA monitoring of ten newer TeV HBLs. All ten sources were successfully detected and imaged, and all showed a one-sided core-jet structure. Many display a morphology common to TeV HBLs: a short, collimated jet followed by a transition to low surface brightness extended emission with a much broader opening angle. The newly detected TeV HBLs tend to be fainter in the radio; the median core flux density was 22 mJy, and the median brightness temperature was 8 × 109 K. The brightness temperatures are well below the equipartition limit, and thus the VLBI cores do not require strong beaming, consistent with the modest values of Doppler and Lorentz factors found in the VLBI jets of TeV HBLs by other studies, and contrasting with the strong beaming generally required by the TeV emission. We study the full sample of TeV HBLs that have been observed with VLBI, and find a correlation between TeV flux and VLBI core brightness temperature, suggesting different but correlated beaming factors for the TeV and radio emission. We present a discussion of these observations in the context of velocity structures in the jets of the TeV HBLs.

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

Search for new heavy particles decaying to Z0Z0-->eeee in p pmacr collisions at s=1.96TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

We report the results of a search for the anomalous production of a massive particle decaying to four electrons via two Z0 bosons in 1.1fb-1 of p pmacr collisions at s=1.96TeV collected by the CDF II detector at Fermilab. We employ optimized electron identification criteria to maximize acceptance and efficiency. We estimate the backgrounds in the invariant mass range 500

Measurement of Inclusive Jet Cross Sections in Z\\/gamma*(-->e+e-)+jets Production in ppŻ Collisions at s=1.96TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

Inclusive jet cross sections in Z\\/gamma* events, with Z\\/gamma* decaying into an electron-positron pair, are measured as a function of jet transverse momentum and jet multiplicity in ppŻ collisions at s=1.96TeV with the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab in run II, based on an integrated luminosity of 1.7fb-1. The measurements cover the rapidity region |yjet|<2.1 and the transverse momentum range

Search for New Physics in High-Mass Electron-Positron Events in ppŻ Collisions at s=1.96TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

We report the results of a search for a narrow resonance in electron-positron events in the invariant mass range of 150 950GeV\\/c2 using 1.3fb-1 of ppŻ collision data at s=1.96TeV collected by the CDF II detector at Fermilab. No significant evidence of such a resonance is observed and we interpret the results to exclude the standard-model-like Z' with a mass

Rapidity and transverse momentum dependence of inclusive J\\/$\\\\psi$ production in pp collisions at $\\\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV  

Microsoft Academic Search

The ALICE experiment at the LHC has studied inclusive J\\/psi production at central and forward rapidities in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV. In this Letter, we report on the first results obtained detecting the J\\/psi through its dilepton decay into e+e- and mu+mu- pairs in the rapidity range |y|<0.9 and 2.5

Range of emotion.  

PubMed

Physical therapists speak of the range of motion given to patients with physical handicaps. There is for families, a "range of emotion" that is part of having a handicapped child. My daughter fills me with both joy and pain, yet she is completely passive. She speaks only with her eyes, and I am learning to listen with mine. In this article I show a rare glimpse inside the heart of a mother with a severely retarded child. It is an honest account of the range of emotion felt, the values that have been affected and the intense love I feel. Our bonding that is normally developed between mother and infant grows only stronger and lasts forever. PMID:2963558

Study of the Crab Nebula TeV emission variability during five years with ARGO-YBJ  

E-print Network

The flaring activity of the Crab Nebula is one of the most puzzling phenomena of the gamma ray sky. The light curves in the energy range E >100 MeV show a high flux variability on time scales ranging from hours to weeks, with sharp emission peaks superimposed to long lasting smoother modulations, whose origin is still under debate. A long term observation of the Crab Nebula at TeV energies could add useful information to understand the mechanisms responsible of this unexpected behavior. The air shower detector ARGO-YBJ monitored the Crab Nebula in the energy range 0.5-20 TeV from November 2007 to February 2013. During the flaring episodes observed by Fermi, the average ARGO-YBJ flux is found to be a factor 2.4 \\pm 0.8 larger than the average value. Performing a long term study of the Crab Nebula flux, the ARGO-YBJ light curve is consistent with a uniform flux with a probability of 0.11. However, a comparison with the Fermi LAT light curve during 4.5 years shows a correlation between the data of the two experi...

Azimuthal quadrupole correlation from gluon interference in 200 GeV and 7 TeV p+p collisions  

E-print Network

The Balitskii-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov (BFKL) multi-Pomeron model of Levin and Rezaeian, with extension to the gluon saturation region, is applied to long-range pseudorapidity correlations on relative azimuth for low momentum final-state hadrons produced in $\\sqrt{s}$ = 200~GeV and 7~TeV p+p collisions. The multi-Pomeron exchange probabilities in the model were estimated by fitting the minimum-bias p+p multiplicity frequency distributions. The multi-Pomeron model prediction for the amplitude of the minimum-bias average quadrupole correlation, proportional to $\\cos 2(\\phi_1 - \\phi_2)$, is consistent with the 200~GeV data when theoretically expected gluon saturation momentum scales are used. Correlation predictions for the high multiplicity 7~TeV p+p collision data are also consistent with the long-range pseudorapidity correlations at small relative azimuth observed in the data. The results presented here show that the present application of a multiple parton-shower, gluon interference mechanism for generating the long-range pseudorapidity, azimuthal quadrupole correlation is not excluded by the data.

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.

Himalayan Mountain Range, India  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Snow is present the year round in most of the high Himalaya Mountain Range (33.0N, 76.5E). In this view taken at the onset of winter, the continuous snow line can be seen for hundreds of miles along the south face of the range in the Indian states of Punjab and Kashmir. The snow line is at about 12,000 ft. altitude but the deep Cenab River gorge is easily delineated as a break along the south edge of the snow covered mountains. '

This article is the December 1993 uranium market summary. A flurry of year-end activity characterized the markets during this period. Twelve deals were concluded; five in the spot concentrates market, one in the medium and long-term market, four in the conversion market, and two in the enrichment market. Total spot volume came to about 1.7 million lbs U3O8 equivalent compared to just 994,000 lbs equivalent in the previous month. The upper end of the restricted price range dipped to $10.00. The lower end of the spot conversion range dropped to $5.35.

Search for tt? resonances in the lepton plus jets final state with ATLAS using 4.7??fb-1 of pp collisions at ?s=7??TeV  

DOE PAGESBeta

A search for new particles that decay into top quark pairs (tt?) is performed with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC using an integrated luminosity of 4.7??fb?1 of proton–proton (pp ) collision data collected at a center-of-mass energy ?s =7??TeV . In the tt? ?WbWb decay, the lepton plus jets final state is used, where one W boson decays leptonically and the other hadronically. The ttŻ system is reconstructed using both small-radius and large-radius jets, the latter being supplemented by a jet substructure analysis. A search for local excesses in the number of data events compared to the Standard Model expectation in the ttŻ invariant mass spectrum is performed. No evidence for a tt? resonance is found and 95% credibility-level limits on the production rate are determined for massive states predicted in two benchmark models. The upper limits on the cross section times branching ratio of a narrow Z ? resonance range from 5.1 pb for a boson mass of 0.5 TeV to 0.03 pb for a mass of 3 TeV. A narrow leptophobic topcolor Z ? resonance with a mass below 1.74 TeV is excluded. Limits are also derived for a broad color-octet resonance with ?/m=15.3% . A Kaluza–Klein excitation of the gluon in a Randall–Sundrum model is excluded for masses below 2.07 TeV.

Agriculture, forestry, range resources  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

In the area of crop specie identification, it has been found that temporal data analysis, preliminary stratification, and unequal probability analysis were several of the factors that contributed to high identification accuracies. Single data set accuracies on fields of greater than 80,000 sq m (20 acres) are in the 70- to 90-percent range; however, with the use of temporal data, accuracies of 95 percent have been reported. Identification accuracy drops off significantly on areas of less than 80,000 sq m (20 acres) as does measurement accuracy. Forest stratification into coniferous and deciduous areas has been accomplished to a 90- to 95-percent accuracy level. Using multistage sampling techniques, the timber volume of a national forest district has been estimated to a confidence level and standard deviation acceptable to the Forest Service at a very favorable cost-benefit time ratio. Range specie/plant community vegetation mapping has been accomplished at various levels of success (69- to 90-percent accuracy). However, several investigators have obtained encouraging initial results in range biomass (forage production) estimation and range readiness predictions. Soil association map correction and soil association mapping in new area appear to have been proven feasible on large areas; however, testing in a complex soil area should be undertaken.

Leptogenesis, dark matter and Higgs phenomenology at TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We propose an interesting model of neutrino masses to realize leptogenesis and dark matter at the TeV scale. A real scalar is introduced to naturally realize the Majorana masses of the right-handed neutrinos. We also include a new Higgs doublet that contributes to the dark matter of the universe. The neutrino masses come from the vacuum expectation value of the triplet Higgs scalar. The right-handed neutrinos are not constrained by the neutrino masses and hence they could generate leptogenesis at the TeV scale without subscribing to resonant leptogenesis. In our model, all new particles could be observable at the forthcoming Large Hardon Collider or the proposed future International Linear Collider.

Search for crushed plerions: TeV to X-ray connection  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We propose a mini-survey of unidentified TeV sources having young Vela-like pulsars with known X-ray PWNe as their neighbors. Although these pulsars show 10 -15 offsets from the center of the TeV brightness distribution, they are likely to be connected to the nearby TeV sources through a faint asymmetric X-ray nebulae formed as a result of the interaction between the SNR reverse shock and the pulsar wind. To test this, we propose to obtain deep X-ray images of several crushed PWN candidates to search for correlations between the X-ray and TeV emission. Confirming that the X-ray PWNe are preferentially extended toward the neighboring TeV sources will establish the viability of the crushed PWN model and reveal the nature of the currently unidentified TeV sources.

TeV Gamma-Ray Astronomy in the new Millennium  

E-print Network

The field of TeV gamma-ray astronomy is reviewed with emphasis on its relation to the origin of cosmic rays. The discovery of TeV photons from supernova remnants and active galaxies has provided the first direct observational link between specific astrophysical objects and particle production at the TeV scale. TeV gamma-ray observations constrain the high end of the electromagnetic spectrum, a regime most sensitive for testing particle acceleration and emission models. TeV telescopes have made important contributions to the understanding of blazars and supernova remnants, however, it will take the next generation atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes and satellite-based gamma-ray detectors to unravel the mystery of hadronic cosmic-ray sources. A short review of TeV observations is followed by a discussion of the capabilities and scientific potential of the next generation ground-based atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes.

Cosmic Ray and Tev Gamma Ray Generation by Quasar Remnants

Results from new broadband (radio to X-ray) high-resolution imaging studies of the dormant quasar remnant cores of nearby giant elliptical galaxies are now shown to permit the harboring of compact dynamos capable of generating the highest energy cosmic ray particles and associated curvature radiation of TeV photons. Confirmation would imply a global inflow of interstellar gas all the way to the accretion powered supermassive black hole at the center of the host galaxy.

Range expansion of mutualists  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The expansion of a species into new territory is often strongly influenced by the presence of other species. This effect is particularly striking for the case of mutualistic species that enhance each other's proliferation. Examples range from major events in evolutionary history, such as the spread and diversification of flowering plants due to their mutualism with pollen-dispersing insects, to modern examples like the surface colonisation of multi-species microbial biofilms. Here, we investigate the spread of cross-feeding strains of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae on an agar surface as a model system for expanding mutualists. Depending on the degree of mutualism, the two strains form distinctive spatial patterns during their range expansion. This change in spatial patterns can be understood as a phase transition within a stepping stone model generalized to two mutualistic species.

Light beam range finder  

DOEpatents

A ``laser tape measure`` for measuring distance is disclosed which includes a transmitter such as a laser diode which transmits a sequence of electromagnetic pulses in response to a transmit timing signal. A receiver samples reflections from objects within the field of the sequence of visible electromagnetic pulses with controlled timing, in response to a receive timing signal. The receiver generates a sample signal in response to the samples which indicates distance to the object causing the reflections. The timing circuit supplies the transmit timing signal to the transmitter and supplies the receive timing signal to the receiver. The receive timing signal causes the receiver to sample the reflection such that the time between transmission of pulses in the sequence in sampling by the receiver sweeps over a range of delays. The transmit timing signal causes the transmitter to transmit the sequence of electromagnetic pulses at a pulse repetition rate, and the received timing signal sweeps over the range of delays in a sweep cycle such that reflections are sampled at the pulse repetition rate and with different delays in the range of delays, such that the sample signal represents received reflections in equivalent time. The receiver according to one aspect of the invention includes an avalanche photodiode and a sampling gate coupled to the photodiode which is responsive to the received timing signal. The transmitter includes a laser diode which supplies a sequence of visible electromagnetic pulses. A bright spot projected on to the target clearly indicates the point that is being measured, and the user can read the range to that point with precision of better than 0.1%. 7 figs.

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.

Proton-proton elastic scattering at the LHC energy of {\\surd} = 7 TeV  

E-print Network

Proton-proton elastic scattering has been measured by the TOTEM experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at {\\surd}s = 7 TeV in dedicated runs with the Roman Pot detectors placed as close as seven times the transverse beam size (sbeam) from the outgoing beams. After careful study of the accelerator optics and the detector alignment, |t|, the square of four-momentum transferred in the elastic scattering process, has been determined with an uncertainty of d t = 0.1GeV p|t|. In this letter, first results of the differential cross section are presented covering a |t|-range from 0.36 to 2.5GeV2. The differential cross-section in the range 0.36 < |t| < 0.47 GeV2 is described by an exponential with a slope parameter B = (23.6{\\pm}0.5stat {\\pm}0.4syst)GeV-2, followed by a significant diffractive minimum at |t| = (0.53{\\pm}0.01stat{\\pm}0.01syst)GeV2. For |t|-values larger than ~ 1.5GeV2, the cross-section exhibits a power law behaviour with an exponent of -7.8_\\pm} 0.3stat{\\pm}0.1syst. When compared to predictions based on the different available models, the data show a strong discriminative power despite the small t-range covered.

Search for Higgs boson decays to a photon and a Z boson in pp collisions at s=7 and 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search is reported for a neutral Higgs boson in the decay channel H?Z?, Z??+?- (?=e,?), using 4.5 fb-1 of pp collisions at s=7 TeV and 20.3 fb-1 of pp collisions at s=8 TeV, recorded by the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The observed distribution of the invariant mass of the three final-state particles, m, is consistent with the Standard Model hypothesis in the investigated mass range of 120-150 GeV. For a Higgs boson with a mass of 125.5 GeV, the observed upper limit at the 95% confidence level is 11 times the Standard Model expectation. Upper limits are set on the cross section times branching ratio of a neutral Higgs boson with mass in the range 120-150 GeV between 0.13 and 0.5 pb for s=8 TeV at 95% confidence level.

MiniAERCam Ranging  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Johnson Space Center (JSC) is designing a small, remotely controlled vehicle that will carry two color and one black and white video cameras in space. The device will launch and retrieve from the Space Vehicle and be used for remote viewing. Off the shelf cellular technology is being used as the basis for communication system design. Existing plans include using multiple antennas to make simultaneous estimates of the azimuth of the MiniAERCam from several sites on the Space Station and use triangulation to find the location of the device. Adding range detection capability to each of the nodes on the Space Vehicle would allow an estimate of the location of the MiniAERCam to be made at each Communication And Telemetry Box (CATBox) independent of all the other communication nodes. This project will investigate the techniques used by the Global Positioning System (GPS) to achieve accurate positioning information and adapt those strategies that are appropriate to the design of the CATBox range determination system.

Transverse momentum distribution and nuclear modification factor of forward neutral pion in proton--lead collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02$TeV  

E-print Network

The transverse momentum ($p_\\text{T}$) distribution for inclusive neutral pions in the very forward rapidity region has been measured, with the Large Hadron Collider forward detector (LHCf), in proton--lead collisions at nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energies of $\\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02$TeV at the LHC. The $p_\\text{T}$ spectra obtained in the rapidity range $-11.0 nuclear modification factor value, relative to the interpolated $p_\\text{T}$ spectra in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 5.02$TeV, of about 0.1--0.4. This value is compared with the predictions of several hadronic interaction Monte Carlo simulations.

The transverse momentum ($p_{\\mathrm T}$) distribution of primary charged particles is measured at midrapidity in minimum-bias p-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02$ TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC in the range $0.15spectra are compared to the expectation based on binary collision scaling of particle production in pp collisions, leading to a nuclear modification factor consistent with unity for $p_{\\mathrm T}$ larger than 2 GeV/$c$, with a weak indication of a Cronin-like enhancement for $p_{\\rm T}$ around 4 GeV/$c$. The measurement is compared to theoretical calculations and to data in Pb-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\mathrm{NN}}}=2.76$ TeV.

Prevalence and molecular characterization of Anaplasmataceae agents in free-ranging Brazilian marsh deer (Blastocerus dichotomus).  

PubMed

Anaplasmataceae organisms comprise a group of obligate intracellular gram-negative, tick-borne bacteria that can infect both animals and humans. In the present work we investigate the presence of Ehrlichia, Anaplasma, and Neorickettsia species in blood samples from Brazilian marsh deer (Blastocerus dichotomus), using both molecular and serologic techniques. Blood was collected from 143 deer captured along floodplains of the Paraná River, near the Porto Primavera hydroelectric power plant. Before and after flooding, marsh deer were captured for a wide range research program under the financial support of Săo Paulo State Energy Company (CESP), between 1998 and 2001. Samples were divided into four groups according to time and location of capture and named MS01 (n=99), MS02 (n=18) (Mato Grosso do Sul, before and after flooding, respectively), PX (n=9; Peixe River, after flooding), and AGUA (n=17; Aguapeí River, after flooding). The seroprevalences for Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Anaplasma phagocytophilum were 76.76% and 20.2% in MS01, 88.88% and 5.55% in MS02, 88.88% and 22.22% in PX, and 94.12% and 5.88% in AGUA, respectively. Sixty-one animals (42.65% of the total population) were PCR-positive for E. chaffeensis PCR (100.0% identity based on 16S rRNA, dsb, and groESL genes). Seventy deer (48.95% of the total population) were PCR-positive for Anaplasma spp. (99.0% of identity with A. platys, and in the same clade as A. phagocytophilum, A. bovis, and A. platys based on 16S rRNA phylogenetic analysis). Our results demonstrate that Brazilian marsh deer are exposed to E. chaffeensis and Anaplasma spp. and may act as reservoirs for these rickettsial agents, playing a role in disease transmission to humans and other animals.

Range imaging laser radar  

DOEpatents

A laser source is operated continuously and modulated periodically (typicy sinusoidally). A receiver imposes another periodic modulation on the received optical signal, the modulated signal being detected by an array of detectors of the integrating type. Range to the target determined by measuring the phase shift of the intensity modulation on the received optical beam relative to a reference. The receiver comprises a photoemitter for converting the reflected, periodically modulated, return beam to an accordingly modulated electron stream. The electron stream is modulated by a local demodulation signal source and subsequently converted back to a photon stream by a detector. A charge coupled device (CCD) array then averages and samples the photon stream to provide an electrical signal in accordance with the photon stream.

Interstellar Protons in the TeV ?-Ray SNR HESS J1731-347: Possible Evidence for the Coexistence of Hadronic and Leptonic ?-Rays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

HESS J1731-347 (G353.6-0.7) is one of the TeV ?-ray supernova remnants (SNRs) that shows the shell-like morphology. We have made a new analysis of the interstellar protons toward the SNR by using both the 12CO(J = 1-0) and H I data sets. The results indicate that the TeV ?-ray shell shows significant spatial correlation with the interstellar protons at a velocity range from -90 km s-1 to -75 km s-1. The total mass of the interstellar medium (ISM) protons is estimated to be 6.4 × 104 M ?, 25% of which is atomic gas, and the distance corresponding to the velocity range is ~5.2 kpc, a factor of 2 larger than the previous figure, 3 kpc. We have identified the cold H I gas observed as self-absorption which shows significant correspondence with the northeastern ?-ray peak. While the good correspondence between the ISM protons and TeV ?-rays in the north of the SNR lends support to the hadronic scenario for the TeV ?-rays, the southern part of the shell shows a break in the correspondence; in particular, the southwestern rim of the SNR shell shows a significant decrease of the interstellar protons by a factor of two. We argue that this discrepancy can be explained due to leptonic ?-rays because this region coincides well with the bright shell that emits non-thermal radio continuum emission and non-thermal X-rays, suggesting that the ?-rays of HESS J1713-347 consist of both the hadronic and leptonic components. The leptonic contribution corresponds to ~20% of the total ?-rays.

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

Aspects of New Physics at the TeV Scale  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Standard Model, despite its great success, is generally considered as an incomplete theory and various reasons suggest that new physics may appear around the TeV scale. The LHC discovered a Standard Model like Higgs boson at around 126 GeV, but has not observed any evidence of new physics yet. As the tension is increasing between the expectation of the TeV scale new physics and the lack of experimental discovery, it is helpful to consider new model building directions and new search strategies. In this thesis, we present a few studies on different aspects of new physics at the TeV scale. First, we present a composite Higgs model based on the top seesaw mechanism. We show that with an approximate U(3)L chiral symmetry, associated with a vector-like quark and the (t, b)L doublet, the lightest CP-even neutral state of the composite scalar sector is lighter than the top quark and can be identified as the newly discovered Higgs boson. Second, we present two studies of search strategies of the stop particle, with the first one focusing on the semi-leptonic channel and the second one focusing on the di-leptonic channel with compressed signal spectra. In both cases, we introduce new kinematic variables which can substantially improve the signal significance. We also present a mass measurement method at hadron colliders for a decay chain of two steps, which ends with a missing particle. We show that it is possible to extract all three invisible particle masses with reasonable accuracies, which was previously thought to be impossible. With the upgrade of the LHC and the possibilities of new larger colliders in the future, the search for new physics will continue on, and our studies can help.

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.

Study of Z Boson Production in PbPb Collisions at sNN=2.76TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for Z bosons in the ?+?- decay channel has been performed in PbPb collisions at sNN=2.76TeV 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 60-120GeV/c2 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.

Measurement of the Differential Cross Section for Isolated Prompt Photon Production in pp Collisions at 7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

A measurement of the differential cross section for the inclusive production of isolated prompt photons in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36 inverse picobarns recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC. The measurement covers the pseudorapidity range |eta|<2.5 and the transverse energy range 25 < ET < 400 GeV, corresponding to the kinematic region 0.007 < xT < 0.114. Photon candidates are identified with two complementary methods, one based on photon conversions in the silicon tracker and the other on isolated energy deposits in the electromagnetic calorimeter. The measured cross section is presented as a function of ET in four pseudorapidity regions. The next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD calculations are consistent with the measured cross section.

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

Prompt and non-prompt J/psi production in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV  

E-print Network

The production of J/psi mesons is studied in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC. The measurement is based on a dimuon sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 314 inverse nanobarns. The J/psi differential cross section is determined, as a function of the J/psi transverse momentum, in three rapidity ranges. A fit to the decay length distribution is used to separate the prompt from the non-prompt (b hadron to J/psi) component. Integrated over J/psi transverse momentum from 6.5 to 30 GeV/c and over rapidity in the range |y| J/psi mesons assuming unpolarized production and 26.0 \\pm 1.4 (stat.) \\pm 1.6 (syst.) \\pm 2.9 (luminosity) nb for J/psi mesons from b-hadron decays.

D Meson Elliptic Flow in Noncentral Pb-Pb Collisions at sNN=2.76TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Azimuthally anisotropic distributions of D0, D+, and D*+ mesons were studied in the central rapidity region (|y|<0.8) in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy sNN=2.76TeV per nucleon-nucleon collision, with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The second Fourier coefficient v2 (commonly denoted elliptic flow) was measured in the centrality class 30%-50% as a function of the D meson transverse momentum pT, in the range 2-16GeV/c. The measured v2 of D mesons is comparable in magnitude to that of light-flavor hadrons. It is positive in the range 2

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.

Measurement of the inelastic pp cross-section at a centre-of-mass energy of = 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The cross-section for inelastic proton-proton collisions, with at least one prompt long-lived charged particle of transverse momentum p T > 0 .2GeV /c in the pseudorapidity range 2 .0 < ? < 4 .5, is measured by the LHCb experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of = 7 TeV. The cross-section in this kinematic range is determined to be ? {inel/acc} = 55 .0 ą 2 .4 mb with an experimental uncertainty that is dominated by systematic contributions. Extrapolation to the full phase space, using P ythia 6, yields ? inel = 66 .9 ą 2 .9 ą 4 .4 mb, where the first uncertainty is experimental and the second is due to the extrapolation.

Neutron range spectrometer  

DOEpatents

A neutron range spectrometer and method for determining the neutron energy spectrum of a neutron emitting source are disclosed. Neutrons from the source are collimnated along a collimation axis and a position sensitive neutron counter is disposed in the path of the collimated neutron beam. The counter determines positions along the collimation axis of interactions between the neutrons in the neutron beam and a neutron-absorbing material in the counter. From the interaction positions, a computer analyzes the data and determines the neutron energy spectrum of the neutron beam. The counter is preferably shielded and a suitable neutron-absorbing material is He-3. The computer solves the following equation in the analysis: ##EQU1## where: N(x).DELTA.x=the number of neutron interactions measured between a position x and x+.DELTA.x, A.sub.i (E.sub.i).DELTA.E.sub.i =the number of incident neutrons with energy between E.sub.i and E.sub.i +.DELTA.E.sub.i, and C=C(E.sub.i)=N .sigma.(E.sub.i) where N=the number density of absorbing atoms in the position sensitive counter means and .sigma. (E.sub.i)=the average cross section of the absorbing interaction between E.sub.i and E.sub.i +.DELTA.E.sub.i.

Electromagnetic leptogenesis at the TeV scale  

E-print Network

We construct an explicit model implementing electromagnetic leptogenesis. In a simple extension of the Standard Model, a discrete symmetry forbids the usual decays of the right-handed neutrinos, while allowing for an effective coupling between the left-handed and right-handed neutrinos through the electromagnetic dipole moment. This generates correct leptogenesis with resonant enhancement and also the required neutrino mass via a TeV scale seesaw mechanism. The model is consistent with low energy phenomenology and would have distinct signals in the next generation colliders, and, perhaps even the LHC.

UV Imaging of Extensive Air Showers at Tev Energies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This work represents the first successful detection of a flux of cosmic gamma rays at TeV energies by an air -Cherenkov imaging telescope from observations made during periods of bright moon light. The detection is based on two years of observations made on the Crab Nebula, a known source of TeV gamma rays, during periods of bright moon light using the Whipple Observatory's 10-meter imaging air Cherenkov telescope outfitted with a camera with spectral sensitivity restricted to UV wavelengths (below 300nm) in place of the conventional visible light sensitive camera. A UV-sensitive camera is obtained by using solar-blind photomultiplier tubes and a UV filter in place of the visible light sensitive photomultiplier tubes in the Whipple camera. The observations result in a detection of a gamma-ray flux from the Crab Nebula at a statistical significance of 5.4 sigma. The performance of this UV-sensitive camera is discussed with particular emphasis on the effects of operating in a bright moonlit environment. The observed signal is shown to behave in a manner which is consistent with what is expected from a gamma-ray flux. Using Monte Carlo simulations, the energy threshold of the camera is estimated to be 0.9TeV and the integral flux derived from this detection is found to be in good agreement with other measurements. Using the experience gained from working with the UV images a second approach to observing in the presence of the moon is tested utilizing the visible sensitive photomultiplier tubes from the conventional Whipple camera with a UV filter to attenuate, but not eliminate, light above 300nm. With this hybrid camera a flux of gamma rays from the Crab Nebula is detected at the 5 sigma level at an estimated energy threshold of 0.7TeV. These two detection's of the Crab Nebula establish the feasibility of utilizing the air-Cherenkov imaging technique during periods of bright moon light, a new capability that would increase the duty cycle of observation.

The Periodicity of the Tev Blazar Mrk 501  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have monitored the TeV blazar Markarian 501 from 2009 to 2013 in Johnson R using the Brigham Young University 16” ROVOR telescope. Mrk 501 was remarkably stable during this time allowing the opportunity to examine its behavior during long quiescent periods. We discovered a small sinusoidal variation in its magnitude having an amplitude of 0.03 magnitudes and a period of 130 days which is essentially twice the period of the x-ray variation discovered by Abdo et al. We present our data and discuss possible interpretations. Topics- galactic--AGN, Blazars: individual (Mrk 501)

Photon-photon refraction for TeV gamma rays  

E-print Network

The propagation of TeV gamma rays can be strongly modified by B-field induced conversion to axion-like particles. The conversion rate depends on the photon dispersion relation which, at such high energies, is dominated by the B-field itself through the QED photon-photon interaction. However, ambient photons also contribute and the cosmic microwave background (CMB) dominates when B electron+positron it is the extra-galactic background light. Local radiation fields, e.g., the galactic star light, can be more important for dispersion than the CMB.

Hadronic-Origin orphan TeV flare from the 1ES 1959+650  

E-print Network

The 1ES 1959+650 is a high-peaked BL Lacertae object. On 4th of June, 2002, it exhibited a strong TeV flare without any low energy counterpart, providing for the first time an example of an orphan flare from a blazar. Observation of this orphan flare is in striking disagreement with the predictions of the leptonic models thus challenging the conventional synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) interpretation of the TeV emission. Here we propose that, the low energy tail of the SSC photons in the blazar jet serve as the target for the Fermi-accelerated high energy protons of energy . 100 TeV, within the jet to produce the TeV photons through the decay of neutral pions from the delta resonance. Our model explains very nicely the observed TeV flux from this orphan flare and we also estimate the high energy neutrino flux from this flaring event.

Electromagnetic deep-probing (100-1000 KMS) of the Earth's interior from artificial satellites: Constraints on the regional emplacement of crustal resources  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Model simulations show that induction in a spherical Earth by distant magnetospheric sources can contribute magnetic field fluctuations at MAGSAT altitudes which are 30 to 40 percent of the external field amplitudes. When the characteristic dimensions (e.g. depth of penetration, etc) of a particular situations are small compared with the Earth's radius, the Earth can be approximated by a plane horizontal half space. In this case, electromagnetic energy is reflected with close to 100 percent efficiency from the Earth's surface. This implies that the total horizontal field is twice the source field when the source is above the satellite, but is reduced to values which are much smaller than the source field when the source is below the satellite. This latter effect tends to enhance the signature of gross electrical discontinuities in the lithosphere when observed at satellite altitudes.

Electromagnetic deep-probing (100-1000 kms) of the Earth's interior from artificial satellites: Constraints on the regional emplacement of crustal resources  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The reconnaissance phase of using satellite observtions to studying electromagnetic induction in the solid earth is summarized. Several points are made: (1) satellite data apparently suffer far less from the effects of near surface lateral heterogeneities in the earth than do ground-based data; (2) zonal ionospheric currents during the recovery phase of major magnetic storms appear to be minimal, at least in the dawn and dusk sectors wher MAGSAT was flown; hence the internal contributions that satellites observe during these times is in fact due primarily to induction in the Earth with little or no contribution from ionospheric currents; and (3) the interpretation of satellite data in terms of primitive electromagnetic response functions, while grossly over-simplified, results in a surprisingly well-resolved radius for an equivalent super-conductor representing the conductivity region of the Earth's interior (5,370 + or - 120 km).

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The two stages of analysis of MAGSAT magnetic data which are designed to evaluate electromagnetic induction effects are described. The first stage consists of comparison of data from contiguous orbit passes over large scale geologic boundaries, such as ocean-land interfaces, at several levels of magnetic disturbance. The purpose of these comparisons is to separate induction effects from effects of lithospheric magnetization. The procdure for reducing the data includes: (1) identifying and subtracting quiet time effects; (2) modelling and subtracting first order ring current effects; and (3) projecting an orbit track onto a map as a nearly straight line so it can serve as an axis on which to plot the corresponding orbit pass data in the context of geography. The second stage consists of comparison of MAGSAT data with standard hourly observatory data. The purpose is to constrain the time evolution of ionospheric and magnetospheric current systems. Qualitative features of the ground based dataset are discussed. Methods for reducing the ground based data are described.

Electromagnetic deep-probing (100-1000 kms) of the Earth's interior from artificial satellites: Constraints on the regional emplacement of crustal resources

A spherical harmonic analysis program is being tested which takes magnetic data in universal time from a set of arbitrarily space observatories and calculates a value for the instantaneous magnetic field at any point on the globe. The calculation is done as a least mean-squares value fit to a set of spherical harmonics up to any desired order. The program accepts as a set of input the orbit position of a satellite coordinates it with ground-based magnetic data for a given time. The output is a predicted time series for the magnetic field on the Earth's surface at the (r, theta) position directly under the hypothetically orbiting satellite for the duration of the time period of the input data set. By tracking the surface magnetic field beneath the satellite, narrow-band averages crosspowers between the spatially coordinated satellite and the ground-based data sets are computed. These crosspowers are used to calculate field transfer coefficients with minimum noise distortion. The application of this technique to calculating the vector response function W is discussed.

An algorithm was developed to address the problem of electromagnetic coupling of ionospheric current systems to both a homogeneous Earth having finite conductivity, and to an Earth having gross lateral variations in its conductivity structure, e.g., the ocean-land interface. Typical results from the model simulation for ionospheric currents flowing parallel to a representative geologic discontinuity are shown. Although the total magnetic field component at the satellite altitude is an order of magnitude smaller than at the Earth's surface (because of cancellation effects from the source current), the anomalous behavior of the satellite observations as the vehicle passes over the geologic contact is relatively more important pronounced. The results discriminate among gross lithospheric structures because of difference in electrical conductivity.

Estimation of the Extragalactic Background Light using TeV Observations of BL~Lacs  

E-print Network

The very high energy (VHE) gamma ray spectral index of high energy peaked blazars correlates strongly with its corresponding redshift whereas no such correlation is observed in the X-ray or the GeV bands. We attribute this correlation to a result of photon-photon absorption of TeV photons with the extragalactic background light (EBL) and utilizing this, we compute the allowed flux range for the EBL, which is independent of previous estimates. The observed VHE spectrum of the sources in our sample can be well approximated by a power-law, and if the de-absorbed spectrum is also assumed to be a power law, then we show that the spectral shape of EBL will be $\\epsilon n(\\epsilon) \\sim k log(\\frac{\\epsilon}{\\epsilon_p}) $. We estimate the range of values for the parameters defining the EBL spectrum, $k$ and $\\epsilon_p$, such that the correlation of the intrinsic VHE spectrum with redshift is nullified. The estimated EBL depends only on the observed correlation and the assumption of a power law source spectrum. Spe...

We estimate the range of values for the parameters defining the EBL spectrum, k and epsilon p , such that the correlation of the intrinsic VHE spectrum with redshift is nullified. The estimated EBL depends only on the observed correlation and the assumption of a power-law source spectrum. Specifically, it does not depend on the spectral modeling or radiative mechanism of the sources or on any theoretical shape of the EBL spectrum obtained through cosmological calculations. The estimated EBL spectrum is consistent with the upper and lower limits imposed by different observations. Moreover, it also agrees closely with the theoretical estimates obtained through cosmological evolution models.

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.

Cosmic ray antiprotons provide an important probe for the study of cosmic-ray propagation in the interstellar space and to investigate the existence of Galactic dark matter. The ARGO-YBJ experiment, located at the Yangbajing Cosmic Ray Laboratory (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300 m a.s.l., 606 g/cm$^2$), is the only experiment exploiting the full coverage approach at very high altitude presently at work. The ARGO-YBJ experiment is particularly effective in measuring the cosmic ray antimatter content via the observation of the cosmic rays Moon shadowing effect. Based on all the data recorded during the period from July 2006 through November 2009 and a full Monte Carlo simulation, we searched for the existence of the shadow produced by antiprotons at the few-TeV energy region. No evidence of the existence of antiprotons was found in this energy region.

Charged particle transverse momentum spectra in pp collisions at sqrt {s} = 0.9 and 7 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The charged particle transverse momentum ( p T) spectra are presented for pp collisions at sqrt {s} = 0.9 and 7 TeV. The data samples were collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and correspond to integrated luminosities of 231 ?b-1 and 2.96 pb-1, respectively. Calorimeter-based high-transverse-energy triggers are employed to enhance the statistical reach of the high- p T measurements. The results are compared with leading and next-to-leading order QCD and with an empirical scaling of measurements at different collision energies using the scaling variable {x_{text{T}}} equiv {{{2{p_{text{T}}}}} left/ {{sqrt {s} }} right.} over the p T range up to 200 GeV/ c. Using a combination of x T scaling and direct interpolation at fixed p T, a reference transverse momentum spectrum at sqrt {s} = 2.76 TeV is constructed, which can be used for studying high- p T particle suppression in the dense QCD medium produced in heavy-ion collisions at that centre-of-mass energy.

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.

Jet energy measurement with the ATLAS detector in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV  

E-print Network

The jet energy scale (JES) and its systematic uncertainty are determined for jets measured with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in proton-proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of sqrt(s) = 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 38 inverse pb. Jets are reconstructed with the anti-kt algorithm with distance parameters R=0.4 or R=0.6. Jet energy and angle corrections are determined from Monte Carlo simulations to calibrate jets with transverse momenta pt > 20 GeV and pseudorapidities eta 50 GeV after a dedicated correction for this effect. The JES is validated for jet transverse momenta up to 1 TeV to the level of a few percent using several in situ techniques by comparing a well-known reference such as the recoiling photon pt, the sum of the transverse momenta of tracks associated to the jet, or a system of low-pt jets recoiling against a high-pt jet. More sophisticated jet calibration schemes are presented based on calorimeter cell energy density weighting or hadronic properties of jets, providing an improved jet energy resolution and a reduced flavour dependence of the jet response. The JES systematic uncertainty determined from a combination of in situ techniques are consistent with the one derived from single hadron response measurements over a wide kinematic range. The nominal corrections and uncertainties are derived for isolated jets in an inclusive sample of high-pt jets.

Charged particle transverse momentum spectra in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 0.9 and 7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

The charged particle transverse momentum (pT) spectra are presented for pp collisions at sqrt(s)=0.9 and 7 TeV. The data samples were collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and correspond to integrated luminosities of 231 inverse microbarns and 2.96 inverse picobarns, respectively. Calorimeter-based high-transverse-energy triggers are employed to enhance the statistical reach of the high-pT measurements. The results are compared with both leading-order QCD and with an empirical scaling of measurements at different collision energies using the scaling variable xT = 2 pT/sqrt(s) over the pT range up to 200 GeV/c. Using a combination of xT scaling and direct interpolation at fixed pT, a reference transverse momentum spectrum at sqrt(s)=2.76 TeV is constructed, which can be used for studying high-pT particle suppression in the dense QCD medium produced in heavy-ion collisions at that centre-of-mass energy.

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.

Rapid Tev Gamma-ray Variability Of Bl Lac  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recent VERITAS observations of BL Lacertae revealed rapid gamma-ray flaring of the object at TeV energies (Ong, 2011, ATel #3459). Here, we present preliminary results from the observations. The flaring activity was observed during a 20-minute exposure, when the flux above 200 GeV reached a peak of about 3x10^-6 m^-2s^-1 (roughly one and a half times the Crab Nebula flux). The light curve shows that the observations missed the rising phase of the flare but covered the decaying phase almost in its entirety. The decay time of the flare is about 4 minutes, making it one of the most rapid gamma-ray flares seen for any TeV blazars. Compared to several other blazars that are known to produce gamma-ray flares on a timescale of minutes, BL Lacertae produces the bulk of its radiation at much lower frequencies. The measured gamma-ray spectrum appears to be as soft as that of the non-flaring state, when compared with the published MAGIC spectrum of the source. We will discuss the implications of the results. VERITAS research is supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution, by NSERC in Canada, by STFC in the U.K. and by Science Foundation Ireland.

Measurement of TeV electrons on ISS/JEM  

SciTech Connect

By using the JEM (Japanese Experiment Module) facility on ISS, we are planning to carry out a precise measurement of the flux and energy spectrum of cosmic-ray electrons of 10 GeV to several TeV. Since the electrons over several 100 GeV could be contributed only from the nearby sources within a distance less than 1 kpc, it is expected in the high energy region that the energy spectrum has a structural component and the distribution of the arrival directions presents anisotropy. By helping to localize and identify the nearest cosmic ray sources, these data should help to resolve the long-term puzzle. The instrument used for the observation is a kind of scintilating-fiber/lead imaging calorimeter that has been used for the balloon observations. We are developing an improved detector having a geometrical factor of 0.5 m{sup 2}sr and a higher rejection power against the background protons ({>=}10{sup 4}). It is expected to observe nearly 500 electrons over 1 TeV during the one-year observation.

Unbroken SU(2) at a 100 TeV collider  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A future 100 TeV pp collider will explore energies much higher than the scale of electroweak (EW) symmetry breaking. In this paper we study some of the phenomenological consequences of this fact, concentrating on enhanced bremsstrahlung of EW gauge bosons. We survey a handful of possible new physics experimental searches one can pursue at a 100 TeV collider using this phenomenon. The most dramatic effect is the non-negligible radiation of EW gauge bosons from neutrinos, making them partly visible objects. The presence of collinear EW radiation allows for the full reconstruction of neutrinos under certain circumstances. We also show that the presence of EW radiation allows one to distinguish the SU(2) quantum numbers of various new physics particles. We consider examples of two completely different new physics paradigms, additional gauge groups and SUSY, where the bremsstrahlung radiation of W and Z from W 's, Z 's or stops allows one to determine the couplings and the mixing angles of the new particles (respectively). Finally, we show how the emission of W s and Zs from high p T Higgs bosons can be used to test the couplings of new physics to the Higgs boson.

Measurement of charged jet production cross sections and nuclear modification in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV  

E-print Network

Charged jet production cross sections in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC are presented. Using the anti-k T algorithm, jets have been reconstructed in the central rapidity region from charged particles with resolution parameters R = 0.2 and R = 0.4. The reconstructed jets have been corrected for detector effects and the underlying event background. To calculate the nuclear modification factor RpPb of charged jets in p-Pb collisions, a pp reference was constructed by scaling previously measured charged jet spectra at s = 7 TeV. In the transverse momentum range 20 ? pT, ch jet ? 120 GeV/c, RpPb is found to be consistent with unity, indicating the absence of strong nuclear matter effects on jet production. Major changes to the radial jet structure are probed via the ratio of jet production cross sections reconstructed with the two different resolution parameters. This ratio is found to be similar to the measurement in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV and to ...

Search for low-scale gravity signatures in multi-jet final states with the ATLAS detector at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV  

E-print Network

We search for evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model in the production of final states with multiple high transverse momentum jets, using 20.3 $fb^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data recorded by the ATLAS detector at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV. No excess of events beyond Standard Model expectations is observed, and upper limits on the visible cross-section for non-Standard Model production of multi-jet final states are set. Using a wide variety of models for black hole and string ball production and decay, the limit on the cross-section times acceptance is as low as 0.16 fb at the 95% CL for a minimum scalar sum of jet transverse momentum in the event of about $4.3$ TeV. Using models for black hole and string ball production and decay, exclusion contours are determined as a function of the production mass threshold and the gravity scale. These limits can be interpreted in terms of lower-mass limits on black hole and string ball production that range from $4.6$ to $6.2$ TeV.

K(S)0 and ? production in Pb-Pb collisions at ?(s(NN))=2.76 TeV.  

PubMed

The ALICE measurement of K(S)(0) and ? production at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at ?(s(NN))=2.76 TeV is presented. The transverse momentum (p(T)) spectra are shown for several collision centrality intervals and in the p(T) range from 0.4 GeV/c (0.6 GeV/c for ?) to 12 GeV/c. The p(T) dependence of the ?/K(S)(0) ratios exhibits maxima in the vicinity of 3 GeV/c, and the positions of the maxima shift towards higher p(T) with increasing collision centrality. The magnitude of these maxima increases by almost a factor of three between most peripheral and most central Pb-Pb collisions. This baryon excess at intermediate p(T) is not observed in pp interactions at ?s=0.9 TeV and at ?s=7 TeV. Qualitatively, the baryon enhancement in heavy-ion collisions is expected from radial flow. However, the measured p(T) spectra above 2 GeV/c progressively decouple from hydrodynamical-model calculations. For higher values of p(T), models that incorporate the influence of the medium on the fragmentation and hadronization processes describe qualitatively the p(T) dependence of the ?/K(S)(0) ratio.

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

E-print Network

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., 606 g/cm$^2$), 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 $\\bar{p}/p$ 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.

Space-Based Range Safety and Future Space Range Applications  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Space-Based Telemetry and Range Safety (STARS) study is a multiphase project to demonstrate the performance, flexibility and cost savings that can be realized by using space-based assets for the Range Safety [global positioning system (GPS) metric tracking data, flight termination command and range safety data relay] and Range User (telemetry) functions during vehicle launches and landings. Phase 1 included flight testing S-band Range Safety and Range User hardware in 2003 onboard a high-dynamic aircraft platform at Dryden Flight Research Center (Edwards, California, USA) using the NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) as the communications link. The current effort, Phase 2, includes hardware and packaging upgrades to the S-band Range Safety system and development of a high data rate Ku-band Range User system. The enhanced Phase 2 Range Safety Unit (RSU) provided real-time video for three days during the historic Global Flyer (Scaled Composites, Mojave, California, USA) flight in March, 2005. Additional Phase 2 testing will include a sounding rocket test of the Range Safety system and aircraft flight testing of both systems. Future testing will include a flight test on a launch vehicle platform. This paper discusses both Range Safety and Range User developments and testing with emphasis on the Range Safety system. The operational concept of a future space-based range is also discussed.

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. Alternatively, we highlight how the neutrino Yukawa textures of the latter are constrained.

Search for TeV emission from 4U 0115 + 63  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

While previous studies of the X-ray binary 4U 0115+63 suggest it to be a steady, TeV gamma-ray emitter, with pulses at the 3.6-sec neutron-star period, the present analysis of data obtained on 60 nights over a 4-yr period with an imaging gamma-ray telescope has uncovered no indication of TeV signals. The derived upper limit of 1 x 10 to the -11th/sq-cm sec, for gamma-rays of energy above 0.7 TeV, is noted to be significantly below the previously reported fluxes.

A search for $\\mathbf{t\\bar{t}}$ resonances using lepton plus jets events in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV with the ATLAS detector  

E-print Network

A search for new particles that decay into top quark pairs is reported. The search is performed with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC using an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data collected at the centre-of-mass energy $\\sqrt{s}=8$TeV. The lepton plus jets final state is used, where the top-pair decays as $W^+bW^-\\bar{b}$, with one $W$ boson decaying leptonically and the other hadronically. The top quark pair invariant mass spectrum is examined for local excesses that are inconsistent with the Standard Model predictions. No evidence for a top quark pair resonance is found, and 95% confidence level limits on the production rate are determined for massive states in four benchmark models. The upper limits on the cross-section times branching ratio of a narrow $Z'$ boson decaying to top pairs range from 4.2 pb to 0.03 pb for resonance masses from 0.4 TeV to 3.0 TeV. A narrow leptophobic topcolour $Z'$ boson with mass below 1.8 TeV is excluded. Upper limits are set on the cross-se...

Atomic collisions with 33-TeV lead ions  

SciTech Connect

Recent availability of relativistic and ultrarelativistic beams of heavy ions has permitted the first controlled studies of atomic collisions at energies sufficient to measure effects of several new basic phenomena. These include measurements substantiating recently predicted finite nuclear size effects resulting in a reduction in the total electronic energy loss of heavy ions in matter, and measurements of Coulomb collisions in which electrons are excited from the Dirac negative energy continuum. Measurements of total energy loss, free electron-positron pair production, and electron capture from pair production have been recently performed using 33-TeV Pb{sup 82+} ions from the CERN SPS accelerator in Geneva. Results of these studies are presented, along with comparisons with relevant theory.

ATLAS SUSY search prospects at 10 TeV  

E-print Network

The search for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) is one of the most important goals for the general purpose detector ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Already with early LHC data, the ATLAS experiment should be sensitive to discover physics beyond the Standard Model. This paper summarizes the prospects of the ATLAS experiment to find experimental evidence for Supersymmetry (SUSY) and Universal Extra Dimensions (UED) in channels with jets, leptons and missing transverse energy for an integrated luminosity of L = 200pb-1 at a centre-of-mass energy sqrt s = 10 TeV. Only a selection of the results is presented focussing on the the discovery reach for inclusive searches.

TeV mu Neutrinos from Young Neutron Stars  

E-print Network

Neutron stars are efficient accelerators for bringing charges up to relativistic energies. We show that if positive ions are accelerated to ~1 PeV near the surface of a young neutron star (t_age star's radiation field will produce beamed mu neutrinos with energies of ~50 TeV that could produce the brightest neutrino sources at these energies yet proposed. These neutrinos would be coincident with the radio beam, so that if the star is detected as a radio pulsar, the neutrino beam will sweep the Earth; the star would be a ``neutrino pulsar''. Looking for muon neutrino emission from young neutron stars will provide a valuable probe of the energetics of the neutron star magnetosphere.

Aspects of jets at 100 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present three case studies at a 100 TeV proton collider for how jet analyses can be improved using new jet (sub)structure techniques. First, we use the winner-take-all recombination scheme to define a recoil-free jet axis that is robust against pileup. Second, we show that soft drop declustering is an effective jet grooming procedure that respects the approximate scale invariance of QCD. Finally, we highlight a potential standard candle for jet calibration using the soft-dropped energy loss. This latter observable is remarkably insensitive to the scale and flavor of the jet, a feature that arises because it is infrared/collinear unsafe, but Sudakov safe.

TeV mu neutrinos from young neutron stars.  

PubMed

Neutron stars are efficient accelerators for bringing charges up to relativistic energies. We show that if positive ions are accelerated to approximately 1 PeV near the surface of a young neutron star (t(age) less than or nearly 10(5) yr), protons interacting with the star's radiation field produce beamed mu neutrinos with energies of approximately 50 TeV that could produce the brightest neutrino sources at these energies yet proposed. These neutrinos would be coincident with the radio beam, so that, if the star is detected as a radio pulsar, the neutrino beam will sweep the Earth; the star would be a "neutrino pulsar." Looking for nu(mu) emission from young neutron stars will provide a valuable probe of the energetics of the neutron star magnetosphere. PMID:15904352

TeV blazar heating in a inhomogeneous universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The intergalactic medium (IGM) contains 90 % of the baryons of the Universe and is the reservoir for structure formation. Acting as a calorimeter, its thermal evolution traces the conditions for structure formation and evolution. It was recently shown that TeV blazars heat up the IGM as the gamma-rays they produce turn into pairs which lose their kinetic energy to the surrounding medium through plasma instabilities. Assuming uniform heating, the heating increases the temperature of the IGM and produces an inverted temperature-density relation in underdense regions. We recently extended this work to take into account heating fluctuations due to clustering and find that the resulting temperature-density relation presents a wide scatter. We model the resulting Lyman alpha forest and compare with recent observations.

Probing TeV scale physics in precision UCN decays  

E-print Network

We present the calculation of matrix elements of iso-vector scalar, axial and tensor charges between a neutron and a proton state on dynamical $N_f=2+1+1$ HISQ configurations generated by the MILC Collaboration using valence clover fermions. These matrix elements are needed to probe novel scalar and tensor interactions in neutron beta-decay that can arise in extensions to the Standard Model at the TeV scale. Results are presented at one value of the lattice spacing, $a=0.12$ fm, and two values of light quarks corresponding to $M_\\pi=310$ and $220$ MeV. We discuss two sources of systematic errors, contribution of excited states to these matrix elements and the renormalization constants, and the efficacy of methods used to control them.

Multiwavelength Observations of The TeV Binary LS I +61 303 with VERITAS, Fermi-LAT and Swift-XRT During a TeV Outburst  

E-print Network

We present the results of a multiwavelength observational campaign on the TeV binary system LS I +61 303 with the VERITAS telescope array (>200 GeV), Fermi-LAT (0.3-300 GeV), and Swift-XRT (2-10 keV). The data were taken from December 2011 through January 2012 and show a strong detection in all three wavebands. During this period VERITAS obtained 24.9 hours of quality selected livetime data in which LS I +61 303 was detected at a statistical sig- nificance of 11.9 sigma. These TeV observations show evidence for nightly variability in the TeV regime at a post-trial significance of 3.6 sigma. The combination of the simultaneously obtained TeV and X-ray fluxes do not demonstrate any evidence for a correlation between emission in the two bands. For the first time since the launch of the Fermi satellite in 2008, this TeV detection allows the construction of a detailed MeV-TeV spectral energy distribution from LS I +61 303. This spectrum shows a distinct cutoff in emission near 4 GeV, with emission seen by the VERI...

Upsilon production cross section in pp collisions at s=7TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) production cross sections in proton-proton collisions at s=7TeV are measured using a data sample collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.1ą0.3pb-1. Integrated over the rapidity range |y|<2, we find the product of the ?(1S) production cross section and branching fraction to dimuons to be ?(pp??(1S)X)ˇB(?(1S)??+?-)=7.37ą0.13-0.42+0.61ą0.81nb, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is associated with the estimation of the integrated luminosity of the data sample. This cross section is obtained assuming unpolarized ?(1S) production. With the assumption of fully transverse or fully longitudinal production polarization, the measured cross section changes by about 20%. We also report the measurement of the ?(1S), ?(2S), and ?(3S) differential cross sections as a function of transverse momentum and rapidity.

Search for Magnetic Monopoles in ?s=7??TeV pp Collisions with the ATLAS Detector  

DOE PAGESBeta

This Letter presents a search for magnetic monopoles with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider using an integrated luminosity of 2.0??fb?1 of pp collisions recorded at a center-of-mass energy of ?s =7??TeV . No event is found in the signal region, leading to an upper limit on the production cross section at 95% confidence level of 1.6/???fb for Dirac magnetic monopoles with the minimum unit magnetic charge and with mass between 200 GeV and 1500 GeV, where ? is the monopole reconstruction efficiency. The efficiency ? is high and uniform in the fiducial region given by pseudorapidity |?|kinsin?<1400??GeV . The minimum value of 700 GeV is for monopoles of mass 200 GeV, whereas the minimum value of 600 GeV is applicable for higher mass monopoles. Therefore, the upper limit on the production cross section at 95% confidence level is 2 fb in this fiducial region. Assuming the kinematic distributions from Drell-Yan pair production of spin-1/2 Dirac magnetic monopoles, the efficiency is in the range 1%–10%, leading to an upper limit on the cross section at 95% confidence level that varies from 145 fb to 16 fb for monopoles with mass between 200 GeV and 1200 GeV. This limit is weaker than the fiducial limit because most of these monopoles lie outside the fiducial region.

Measurement of prompt J/ ? pair production in pp collisions at = 7 Tev  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Production of prompt J/ ? meson pairs in proton-proton collisions at = 7 TeV is measured with the CMS experiment at the LHC in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 4.7 fb-1. The two J/ ? mesons are fully reconstructed via their decays into ? + ? - pairs. This observation provides for the first time access to the high-transverse-momentum region of J/ ? pair production where model predictions are not yet established. The total and differential cross sections are measured in a phase space defined by the individual J/ ? transverse momentum ( p T J/ ? ) and rapidity (| y J/ ? |): | y J/ ? | < 1.2 for p {T/J/ ? } > 6.5 GeV/ c; 1.2 < | y J/ ? | < 1.43 for a p T threshold that scales linearly with | y J/ ? | from 6.5 to 4.5 GeV/ c; and 1.43 < | y J/ ? | < 2.2 for p {T/J/ ? } > 4.5 GeV/ c. The total cross section, assuming unpolarized prompt J/ ? pair production is 1.49 ą 0.07 (stat) ą0.13 (syst) nb. Different assumptions about the J/ ? polarization imply modifications to the cross section ranging from -31% to +27%. [Figure not available: see fulltext.

Inclusive b-jet production in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV  

SciTech Connect

The inclusive b-jet production cross section in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is measured using data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The cross section is presented as a function of the jet transverse momentum in the range 18 < pT < 200 GeV for several rapidity intervals. The results are also given as the ratio of the b-jet production cross section to the inclusive jet production cross section. The measurement is performed with two different analyses, which differ in their trigger selection and b-jet identification: a jet analysis that selects events with a b jet using a sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 34 inverse picobarns, and a muon analysis requiring a b jet with a muon based on an integrated luminosity of 3 inverse picobarns. In both approaches the b jets are identified by requiring a secondary vertex. The results from the two methods are in agreement with each other and with next-to-leading order calculations, as well as with predictions based on the PYTHIA event generator.

Hunting for TeV Scale Strings at the LHC  

E-print Network

In this paper I review the possibility of TeV scale strings that may be detectable by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This possibility was investigated extensively in a series of phenomenological papers during 1984-1985 in connection with the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). The work was mainly based on a model independent systematic parametrization of scattering amplitudes and cross sections, for Standard Model particles, quarks and leptons, that were assumed to behave like strings, while gluons, photons, $W^{\\pm},Z$ were taken as elementary. By using Veneziano type beta functions consistent with crossing symmetry, duality and Regge behavior, bosonic or fermionic resonances in each channel were included, while the low energy behavior was matched to effective field theory non-renormalizable interactions consistent with the Standard Model SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) gauge symmetry as well as global flavor and family symmetries. The motivation for this approach at that time was the possible compositeness of quarks and leptons but the same phenomenological approach would apply effectively with the modern additional motivations for TeV scale strings, such as the hypothesis of D-branes with large extra dimensions. Because some of the main theoretical and phenomenological work of that time appeared only in the 1984 Snowmass and other proceedings, the results of the investigations have been inaccessible to most researchers and consequently have been largely forgotten. Meanwhile similar approaches are being explored by other researchers. Given the renewed interest in the old results, the purpose of the current paper is to make them readily available.

Measurement of inclusive differential cross sections for pp collisions at (square root)s = 1.96 TeV.  

PubMed

We present measurements of the inclusive production cross sections of the Gamma(1S) bottomonium state in pp collisions at (square root)s = 1.96 TeV. Using the Gamma(1S) --> mu(+)mu(-) decay mode for a data sample of 159 +/- 10 pb(-1) collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, we determine the differential cross sections as a function of the Gamma(1S) transverse momentum for three ranges of the Gamma(1S) rapidity: 0 < y(Gamma) < or = 0.6, 0.6 < y(Gamma) < or = 1.2, and 1.2 < y(Gamma) < or = 1.8.

Properties of W + jet events in proton-antiproton collisions at 1.8 TeV  

SciTech Connect

W boson + QCD Jet events, produced in 1.8 TeV proton-antiproton collisions and measured by the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF), were used to measure the center-of-mass production angle of the W + jet system, and were also used to place limits on the production of excited quark states. The center-of-mass production angular distribution agrees well with leading order and next-to-leading order QCD predictions. Excited quark states were searched for in the reaction q + g {yields} q* {yields} q + W. Upper limits on the q* cross section, as a function of the q* mass, are shown. Comparison with a theoretical prediction for q* production excludes excited quark states with a mass in the range 150--530 GeV/c{sup 2}, at 95% confidence.

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.

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.

Search for a W' or techni-? decaying into WZ in pp Collisions at sqrt[s] = 7??TeV.  

PubMed

A search is performed in pp collisions at sqrt[s]=7??TeV for exotic particles decaying via WZ to final states with electrons and muons. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of approximately 5??fb(-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. PMID:23083236

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.
