At the cooler synchrotron COSY at Ju¨lich a novel (P-even, T-odd) true null test of time-reversal invariance (TRI) was proposed and accepted, that is supposed to measure TRI to an accuracy of 10[sup -4] (Phase 1) or 10[sup -6] (Phase 2). The parity conserving time-reversal violating observable is the total cross-section asymmetry Ay,xz. The measurement is planned as an internal target transmission experiment at the cooler synchrotron COSY. Ay,xz is measured using a polarized beam with an energy of about 1 GeV and a tensor polarized deuteron atomic-beam target. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    A change in ‘symmetry’ is often observed when matter undergoes a phase transition?the symmetry is said to be spontaneously broken. The transition made by underdoped high-transition-temperature (high-Tc) superconductors is unusual, in that it is not a mean-field transition as seen in...

    We present a technique based on time reversal to focus an acoustic field at any depth and range in a waveguide. We take advantage of the signal received from an acoustic beacon in the guide to build a time-reversed modified version of the field that refocuses at a different point in the...
