The final analysis of atmospheric neutrino events collected with theMACROdetector is presented. Three different classes of events, generated by neutrinos in different energy ranges, are studied looking at rates, angular distributions and estimated energies. The results are consistent for all the subsamples and indicate a flux deficit that depends on energy(More)
The burgeoning field of oligonucleotide therapeutics is based upon synthetically derived biopolymers comprised of relatively simple RNA and DNA building blocks. Significant gains in knowledge around mechanisms of action (RNA interference, RNA splicing, etc.) and oligonucleotide design (ASO, siRNA, DsiRNA, miRNA, locked nucleic acid, etc.) have been the main(More)
We present the final results obtained by the MACRO experiment in the search for GUT magnetic monopoles in the penetrating cosmic radiation, for the range 4×10 −5 < β < 1. Several searches with all the MACRO sub-detectors (i.e. scintillation counters, limited streamer tubes and nuclear track detectors) were performed, both in stand alone and combined ways.(More)

In this paper we present the results of a search for nuclearites in the penetrating cosmic radiation using the scintillator and track-etch subdetectors of the MACRO apparatus. The analyses cover the β = v/c range at the detector depth (3700 hg/cm) 10 < β < 1; for β = 2× 10 the flux limit is 2.7× 10 cmssr for an isotropic flux of nuclearites, and twice this(More)

Muon energy measurement represents an important issue for any experiment addressing neutrino-induced up-going muon studies. Since the neutrino oscillation probability depends on the neutrino energy, a measurement of the muon energy adds an important piece of information concerning the neutrino system. We show in this paper how the MACRO limited streamer(More)

Differential mobility spectrometry (DMS), also commonly referred to as high field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS) is a rapidly advancing technology for gas-phase ion separation. The interfacing of DMS with mass spectrometry (MS) offers potential advantages over the use of mass spectrometry alone. Such advantages include improvements to(More)
Differential mobility spectrometry (DMS) is a rapidly advancing technology for gas-phase ion separation. The interfacing of DMS with mass spectrometry (MS) offers potential advantages over the use of mass spectrometry alone. Such advantages include improvements to mass spectral signal/noise ratios, orthogonal/complementary ion separation to mass(More)
