We report on a precision measurement of low-mass muon pairs in 158 AGeV indium-indium collisions at the CERN SPS. A significant excess of pairs is observed above the yield expected from neutral meson decays. The unprecedented sample size of 360,000 dimuons and the good mass resolution of about 2% allow us to isolate the excess by subtraction of the decay(More)
Due to the importance of young-of-the-year (YOY) perch in the peri-alpine regions where they are consumed, the microcystin (MC) contamination of YOY perch was analysed both in field (Lake Bourget, France) and experimentally using force-feeding protocols with pure MCs. In-situ, schools of YOY perch present in the epilimnion of the lake were never found in(More)
The NA60 experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron has studied dimuon production in 158A GeV In-In collisions. The strong excess of pairs above the known sources found in the complete mass region 0.2<M<2.6 GeV has previously been interpreted as thermal radiation. We now present first results on the associated angular distributions. Using the(More)
We present a new measurement of J/ψ production in Pb-Pb collisions at 158 GeV/nucleon, from the data sample collected in year 2000 by the NA50 Collaboration, under improved experimental conditions with respect to previous years. With the target system placed in vacuum, the setup was better adapted to study, in particular, the most peripheral nuclear(More)
The NA60 experiment has studied J/ψ production in Indium-Indium collisions at 158 A·GeV. In this paper we present an updated set of results obtained with the complete set of available statistics and an improved alignment of the vertex tracker. The centrality dependence of the J/ψ production, obtained with an analysis technique based only on the J/ψ sample,(More)
Mean duration of embryonic development and variability of this parameter were studied for seven different progenies in rainbow trout : diploid controls, diploid gynogenetics, triploids resulting from heat shock or from a direct cross between diploid female and tetraploid male, tetraploids, and diploid or triploid hybrids between female rainbow trout and(More)
The reprecipitation mechanisms and kinetics of γ' particles during cooling from supersolvus and subsolvus temperatures were studied in AD730(TM) Ni-based superalloy using Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA). The evolution in the morphology and distribution of reprecipitated γ' particles was investigated using Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscopy(More)
