A rapid simple and robust reversed-phase HPLC method was developed for rapid screening in bioavailability studies or comparative bioequivalence studies. The method is specific for vancomycin as no interference from acetylsalicylic acid, paracetamol and caffeine was observed. The mean intra-day precision was from 11.7% (low concentration) to 0.3% (high(More)
(2008). Measurement of the invariant-mass spectrum for the two photons from the η→π0γγ decay. Measurement of the invariant-mass spectrum for the two photons from the η → π 0 γ γ decay New results on the rare, doubly radiative decay η → π 0 γ γ have been obtained from a revised analysis of the Crystal Ball experiment performed at the AGS. The analysis yields(More)
We report on the first determination of upper limits on the branching ratio (BR) of eta decay to pi0pi0gamma and to pi0pi0pi0gamma. Both decay modes are strictly forbidden by charge conjugation (C) invariance. Using the Crystal Ball multiphoton detector, we obtained BR(eta-->pi0pi0gamma)<5 x 10(-4) at the 90% confidence level, in support of C invariance of(More)
We report on an investigation of the (pi(-),pi(0)pi(0)) reaction by means of measurements of the pi(0)pi(0) invariant mass distributions from pi(-) interactions on H, D, C, Al, and Cu targets at p(pi(-)) = 0.408 GeV/c. The sharp, strong peak in the pi(+)pi(-) invariant mass near 2m(pi) reported by the CHAOS Collaboration is not seen in our pi(0)pi(0) data.(More)
Throughout RHIC Run-9 (polarized protons) and Run-10 (gold), numerous modifications to the Baseband Tune (BBQ) system were made. Hardware and software improvements resulted in improved resolution and control, allowing the system to overcome challenges from competing 60Hz mains harmonics, other spectral content, and other beam issues. Test points from the(More)
We report the first measurements of the total cross section of the reaction K − p → 0 γ at eight beam momenta from 514 to 750 MeV/c. The data were obtained at the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory using the Crystal Ball detector consisting of 672 NaI crystals. All charged particles were vetoed by a barrel of plastic(More)
Gradient Synchrotron for beam momenta between 514 and 750 MeV/c. The photons from 0 and π 0 decays were detected, as well as the neutron in a small fraction of the events. The differential cross section and the 0 polarization are reported at eight momenta and nearly the full angular range. Total cross sections are derived from Legendre polynomial fits to(More)
We have determined the quadratic slope parameter alpha for eta-->3pi(0) to be alpha = -0.031(4) from a 99% pure sample of 10(6)eta-->3pi(0) decays produced in the reaction pi(-)p-->n(eta) close to the eta threshold using the Crystal Ball detector at the AGS. The result is four times more precise than the present world data and disagrees with current chiral(More)
Recently the Crystal Ball Collaboration measured precise new data for the near-threshold reaction K(-)p-->etaLambda, which is dominated by formation of the Lambda(1670)1 / 2(-). In this Letter, we present results of a unitary, multichannel analysis that incorporates the new Crystal Ball data. For our preferred fit, we obtain mass M = 1673+/-2 MeV, width(More)
