    Experimental study of a fast argon atom beam source is carried out and the study results are presented. The source comprises a 90-mm deep and 210-mm in diameter hollow cathode as well as a flat emission grid, both electrodes made of titanium. The study revealed main factors, which influence the...

    The production of 123I from 123Te by the l23Te( p, n)123I reaction at various target enrichments (99.9, 91, 85.4, and 70.1%) was simulated using ALICE and SRIM programs. The 123I production feasibility by the above reaction was evaluated. The calculations give more accurate results for proton...

    It is shown that the observation of the spectra of leading neutrons from proton beams can be a good probe of absorptive and migration effects. We quantify how these effects modify the reggeized pion-exchange description of the measurements of leading neutrons at HERA. We are able to obtain a...

    Being used in the fixed-target mode, the multi-TeV LHC proton and lead beams allow for studies of heavy-flavour hadroproduction with unprecedented precision at backward rapidities, far negative Feynman-x, using conventional detection techniques. At the nominal LHC energies, quarkonia can be...

    To overcome the diffraction constraints of traditional optical lithography, the next generation lithographies (NGLs) will utilize any one or more of EUV (extreme ultraviolet), X-ray, electron or ion beam technologies to produce sub-100 nm features. Perhaps the most under-developed and...
