We report the cooling of nitric oxide using a single collision between an argon atom and a molecule of NO. We have produced significant numbers (108 to 109 molecules per cubic centimeter per quantum state) of translationally cold NO molecules in a specific quantum state with an upper-limit root mean square laboratory velocity of 15 plus or minus 1 meters(More)
BACKGROUND We analyzed the potential of abiraterone acetate (henceforth abiraterone) to reduce androgen levels below lower limits of quantification (LLOQ) and explored the association with changes in PSA decline in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients. METHODS COU-AA-301 is a 2:1 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled(More)
The preferred sense of product molecule rotation (clockwise or counterclockwise) in a bimolecular collision system has been measured. Rotationally inelastic collisions of nitric oxide (NO) molecules with Ar atoms were studied by combining crossed molecular beams, circularly polarized resonant multiphoton ionization probing, and velocity-mapped ion imaging(More)
The differential cross section for the H + D(2) --> HD + D reaction has been measured using a technique called reaction product imaging. In this experiment, a photolytically produced beam of hydrogen (H) atoms crossed a beam of cold deuterium (D(2)) molecules. Product D atoms were ionized at the intersection of the two particle beams and accelerated toward(More)
We have developed a compact, low cost, modular, crossed molecular beam machine. The new apparatus utilizes several technological advancements in molecular beams valves, ion detection, and vacuum pumping to reduce the size, cost, and complexity of a molecular beam apparatus. We apply these simplifications to construct a linear molecular beam machine as well(More)
In vitro transcription of cleaved SV40 DNA with calf thymus RNA polymerase reveals a discrete transcript. The pattern of resistance to the inhibitor alpha-amanitin identifies the RNA as a product of RNA polymerase III transcription. The RNA is shown to initiate artificially near a DNA terminus created by cleavage and to terminate specifically near a cluster(More)
