A Search for Ultra-High Energy Neutrinos and Cosmic-Rays by Matthew Joseph Mottram

By Matthew Joseph Mottram

The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the information from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive brief Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne test that searches for radio signs originating from ultra-high strength neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the quest for ultrahigh strength neutrinos of astrophysical starting place is likely one of the notable experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA scan was once designed to be the main delicate device to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave heritage. The method and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are offered within the thesis.

Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation

Atomic and molecular beams are hired in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser volume, within the organic sciences. those beams allow atoms to be studied less than collision-free stipulations and make allowance the examine in their interplay with different atoms, charged debris, radiation, and surfaces.

Werner Heisenberg - Die Sprache der Atome: Leben und Wirken - Eine wissenschaftliche Biographie - Die "Fröhliche Wissenschaft" (Jugend bis Nobelpreis) (German Edition)

Die Entdeckung Heisenbergs, dass sich Messwerte komplementärer Größen in der mikroskopischen Welt nicht beliebig genau bestimmen lassen, vollendete die von Planck, Einstein und anderen entwickelten Quantentheorie und eröffnete ein neues „goldenes Zeitalter" der Physik. Der letzte Doktorand Werner Heisenbergs verarbeitet in dieser Biografie eigene Erinnerungen und stützt sich auf Zeitzeugen sowie Manuskripte und Publikationen Heisenbergs.

Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theory and Gravity

Offering a entire, pedagogical creation to scattering amplitudes in gauge thought and gravity, this booklet is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers. It deals a tender transition from uncomplicated wisdom of quantum box thought to the frontier of recent study. development on easy quantum box idea, the publication begins with an advent to the spinor helicity formalism within the context of Feynman ideas for tree-level amplitudes.

Fundamentals of Nuclear Physics

This ebook introduces the present knowing of the basics of nuclear physics via concerning key experimental info and through offering a theoretical realizing of imperative nuclear houses. It basically covers the constitution of nuclei at low excitation intimately. It additionally examines nuclear forces and rot homes.
