The electron drift mobility μ has been measured in CH3OH gas in the temperature range 303≤T≤363 K and in the number density range 2.4×1017≤n≤2.1×1019 cm-3. It is usually assumed—although there is no foundation for it—that at such low gas densities the ‘‘zero-field’’ density-normalized mobility (μn) does not depend on n, i.e. it can be described by the so-called Lorentz single collision approximation [see, e.g., N. Gee and G. R. Freeman, Can. J. Chem. 61, 1664 (1983)]. We observed, however, a density dependence of (μn) which can be explained approximately in terms of coherent and incoherent multiple scattering corrections where the coherent contribution due to correlations between the scatterers predominates at lower temperatures. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.

    In this work, we have made an effort to determine whether the effective atomic numbers of H-, C-, N- and O-based composite materials would indeed remain a constant over the energy grid of 280–1200 keV wherein incoherent scattering dominates their interaction with photons. For this...

The data will be compared to a variety of models of multiple scattering and used as input to cooling studies for a Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider and to the MICE experiment. The second and...

    We apply the path-integral method to study the multiple scattering and collective flow in intensity interferometry in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. We show that the Glauber model and eikonal approximation in an earlier quantum treatment are special examples of the more general path-integral...
