Through an example of recent experimental evidence of spin-charge separation in one dimensional correlated electron systems. Sr[sub 2]CuO[sub 3] and SrCuO[sub 2], the seemingly natural concept of a ‘hole’ being a single particle is re-considered. It is argued that a hole as a particle should be an exception rather than the norm, contrary to one’s usual perception. This implies that strange phenomena such as spin-charge separation in correlated systems may not be as strange as one may think. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We consider the π+π-π0γ final state in electron–positron annihilation at c.m.s. energies not far from the threshold. Both initial- and final-state radiations of the hard photon are considered, but without interference between them. The amplitude for the final-state...

    The transverse polarization components of the positrons from the decay of polarized muons have been measured at the Paul Scherrer Institute by annihilating in flight the decay positrons with polarized electrons. The use of a stroboscopic method greatly reduces systematic errors. The energy...
