In recent years, the study of weak interaction and its relationship with the other fundamental interactions of nature has progressed rapidly. Weak interactions of leptons and quarks provides an… Continue Reading
This thesis describes observations of the correlation in linear polarization of two photons emitted successively in an atomic cascade. Calcium atoms in an atomic beam are excited optically (41S0… Continue Reading
Parity violation is discussed in terms of the Weinberg-Salam model. The theory is compared to results obtained by the SLAC polarized electron-nucleon scattering experiment and by optical rotation… Continue Reading
The typical spin-1/2 baryon semileptonic decay is described by a matrix element, the hadronic part of which may be written as: B f f 1 (q 2)γ λ + i f 2 (q 2)σ λµ q µ + g 1 (q 2)γ λ γ 5 + g 3 (q 2)γ 5… Continue Reading
A brief general survey is given of optical rotation and Stark-interference experiments to observe parity violation in heavy atoms. Topics include basic ideas and some formulae, methods and problems… Continue Reading
A brief general survey is given of the experimental situation in atomic parity nonconservation and in the search for permanent electric dipole moments of the free neutron, atoms and molecules.
A quantum-mechanical variable that specifies the component of spin-angular momentum of a particle al…
