The HEGRA CT-System was used to search for TeV gamma-rays from Tycho's SNR over the 1997 and 1998 observing seasons, resulting in about 65 hours of useful data. No evidence for TeV gamma-rays has been found utilising a â€˜tight cutâ€™ analysis, and a 3Ïƒ upper limit (>1 TeV) of...

Acceleration of high-energy hadrons in GRB blast waves will be established if high-energy neutrinos are detected from GRBs. Recent calculations of photomeson neutrino production are reviewed, and new calculations of high-energy neutrinos and the accompanying hadronic cascade radiation are...

We determine the radiative decay amplitudes for the decay into D* and $\bar{{D}}$ $\gamma$ , or D*s and $\bar{{D}}_{s}^{}$ $\gamma$ of some of the charmonium-like states classified as X , Y , Z resonances, plus some other hidden charm states which are dynamically generated from the...

Fermi/LAT has detected extra spectral components in several GRBs. Hadronic cascade triggered by photopion production can generate power-law spectra due to synchrotron or inverse Compton from secondary electrons/positrons. The observed extra components are explained by this cascade processes and...

The polarized and tagged Graal gamma-ray beam is obtained by backward Compton scattering of laser light on the high-energy electrons circulating in the ESRF storage ring. This technique, first developed for the Ladon beam on the storage ring Adone at LNF [1], provides gamma-ray beams with linear...

The dose rate to personnel due to remnant radioactivity during maintenance periods will be an important issue at the forthcoming Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Among the most abundant construction materials are aluminum, steel, copper and lead. In order to obtain more reliable estimates on the...
