In this paper, we discuss the possibility of using x-ray Compton scattering as a probe of the outer electronic structure of ions immersed in warm dense matter. It is proposed that the x-ray free-electron lasers currently under construction will provide an ideal tool for this, with the main pulse being used to create a uniform well-defined sample and the(More)
Several methods have been used recently to determine gene expression profiles of cell populations. Here we demonstrate the strength of combining two approaches, serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) and DNA arrays, to help elucidate pathways in breast cancer progression by finding genes consistently expressed at different levels in primary breast(More)
Transcriptionally regulated growth-response genes play a pivotal role in the determination of the fate of a cell. p53 is known to transcriptionally regulate genes important in regulating cell growth potential. Using differential reverse transcription-PCR analysis of rat embryo fibroblast cells containing a temperature-sensitive p53 allele, we were able to(More)
Using data collected at the psi(3770) resonance with the CLEO-c detector at the Cornell e+e- storage ring, we present improved measurements of the absolute branching fractions of D+decays to K0e+ve, pi0e+ve, K*0e+ve, and p0e+ve, and the first observation and absolute branching fraction measurement of D+ --> omega e+ve. We also report the most precise tests(More)
Laser-produced proton beams have been used to achieve ultrafast volumetric heating of carbon samples at solid density. The isochoric melting of carbon was probed by a scattering of x rays from a secondary laser-produced plasma. From the scattering signal, we have deduced the fraction of the material that was melted by the inhomogeneous heating. The results(More)
We have used the CLEO-II detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring to study the inclusive production of charmonium mesons in a sample of 2.15 million BB events. We nd inclusive branching fractions of (1.130.040.06)% for B!J==X, (0.340.040.03)% for B! 0 X, and (0.400.060.04)% for B! c1 X. We also nd some evidence for the inclusive production of c2. An(More)
