Discusses the results of experiments in which CR-39 track recording material was exposed to a number of implosions in the Nova laser. Identification of the incident particles and their energies; Calibration of the etching procedure; Comparison of deuterium-deuterium neutron yield with the deuterium-deuterium proton yield determined from the track.

    Complete fusion reactions (xn-channels) using actinide targets are observed for values of the effective fissilities x eff ∼ 0.80 in the sub-pb range of production cross sections. The elements produced at this limit are Z = 108–112. Beyond complete fusion, heavier elements might still...

While the technique is unlikely to lead to a practical power generator, a similar...

    Beauty quark production in ep collisions is being studied at HERA. The latest results in deep inelastic scattering (DIS) and photoproduction (PHP) regime performed by the ZEUS and HI experiments are presented here. The first measurement exploits the potential of the ZEUS mi-crovertex detector to...

    The 10B(p,α)7Be reaction is the main responsible for 10B destruction in stellar interior. In such environments the process takes places mainly through a resonant state of the compound 11C nucleus. The 10B(p,α)7Be reaction has been studied by means of the Trojan Horse Method using the...
