The monitoring of the condition of electrical machines can significantly reduce the costs of maintenance by allowing the early detection of faults, which could be expensive to repair. It is very advantageous to implement time and money saving condition based maintenance rather than periodic or failure based maintenance. In this paper some results on… (More)
We report here the radial compression of a large number of antiprotons ( approximately 5 x 10(5)) in a strong magnetic field under ultrahigh vacuum conditions by applying a rotating electric field. Compression without any resonant structures was demonstrated for a range of frequencies from the sideband frequency of 200 kHz to more than 1000 kHz. The radial… (More)
A femtosecond optical frequency comb and continuous-wave pulse-amplified laser were used to measure 12 transition frequencies of antiprotonic helium to fractional precisions of (9-16)x10(-9). One of these is between two states having microsecond-scale lifetimes hitherto unaccessible to our precision laser spectroscopy method. Comparisons with three-body QED… (More)

We present the first measurement of fluctuations from event to event in the production of strange particles in collisions of heavy nuclei. The ratio of charged kaons to charged pions is determined for individual central Pb+Pb collisions. After accounting for the fluctuations due to detector resolution and finite number statistics we derive an upper limit on… (More)
The Atomic Spectroscopy and Collisions Using Slow Antiprotons experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) facility of CERN constructed segmented scintillators to detect and track the charged pions which emerge from antiproton annihilations in a future superconducting radiofrequency Paul trap for antiprotons. A system of 541 cast and extruded scintillator… (More)
Results are presented on Omega production in central Pb+Pb collisions at 40 and 158A GeV beam energy. For the first time in heavy ion reactions, rapidity distributions and total yields were measured for the sum Omega(-) + Omega(+) at 40A GeV and for Omega(-) and Omega(+) separately at 158A GeV. The yields are strongly underpredicted by the string-hadronic… (More)
Workers at the Pennywell neighbourhood centre in Sunderland realised that all the services they offered local families were targeted at women and children. Denise Barna describes a project to set up a group for young fathers, to build their confidence in their parenting role.
The ASACUSA (Atomic Spectroscopy and Collisions Using Slow Antiprotons) collaboration is currently attempting to observe a laser-induced resonant transition of antiprotonic helium atoms at wavelength of 1154.9 nm. Motivations to observe this transition and a nanosecond near-infrared laser prepared for this work are presented.
