Future nuclear decay experiments have to be able to combine a large mass, the capability of distinguishing between several possible decay channels and a good background discrimination, in order to increase their sensitivity linearly with the mass. We present the capabilities of the liquid Argon technology to fulfill these requirements.

    The decay K[sup –] → μ[sup –]νπ[sup 0] has been studied using in-flight decays detected with the ISTRA+ setup operating in the 25-GeV negative secondary beam of the U-70 PS. About 112K events were used for the analysis. The λ[sub +] and λ[sub 0] slope...

    The results of searches for various nucleon decay modes using the 61 kton·year (991 days) exposure of the Super-Kamiokande water Cherenkov detector will be presented. In particular, nucleon decay into modos favored by supersymmetric (SUSY) grand unified theories (GUTs) will be stressed.

    The decay mode D[sup 0] → K[sup 0]&Kmacr;[sup 0] has no factorizable contribution. We calculate the nonfactorizable chiral loop contributions of order O(p³) and then we use a heavy-light type chiral quark model to calculate nonfactorizable tree level terms, also of order O(p³),...

    We bosonize the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio quark model with separable nonlocal interactions in order to derive a chiral U(3) × U(3) Lagrangian, containing, besides the usual meson fields, their first radial excitations. The spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry is governed by the...

    A large correlation of production and decay planes of the π[sup -]π[sup +]π[sup -] system in dissociation of a 40-GeV/c π[sup -] beam on nuclear targets was observed. The dependence of the correlation on atomic number, Feynman variable, and transversal momentum, as well as on...

    Localized and cold samples of atoms produced with laser cooling and trapping techniques are a powerful tool for nuclear �-decay experiments. Recently we have concentrated on measurements of the momentum of the daughter ion produced, which leads to a variety of new observables. Angular...

    We study single production of excited electrons at the CERN LHC through contact interactions of fermions. Subsequent decays of excited electrons to ordinary electrons and light fermions via gauge and contact interactions are examined. The mass range accessible with the ATLAS detector is...

    The charge asymmetry of theg,h, andkDalitz plot parameters fordecays has been measured with 35 GeV/c hadron beams at the 70 GeV IHEP accelerator. Theg,h, andkvalues obtained appear to be identical fordecays within the errors quoted. In particular, the charge asymmetryAg = (g + -g-)/(g + +g-) of...

  • An experiment for the measurement of the bound- �-decay of the free neutron. Schott, W.; Dollinger, G.; Faestermann, T.; Friedrich, J.; Hartmann, F.; Hertenberger, R.; Kaiser, N.; M�ller, A.; Paul, S.; Ulrich, A. // European Physical Journal A -- Hadrons & Nuclei;Dec2006, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p603 

    The hyperfine-state population of hydrogen after the bound-�-decay of the neutron directly yields the neutrino left-handedness or a possible right-handed admixture and possible small scalar and tensor contributions to the weak force. Using the through-going beam tube of a high-flux reactor,...
