Experimental evidence of left-handed transmission is demonstrated through an array of ferromagnetic microwires. We used amorphous magnetic microwires to take advantage of both electric and magnetic responses locally generating a double negative medium at microwave frequencies, where the ferromagnetic resonance effects take place. The dilution of the(More)
Based on the concepts of artificially microstructured materials, i.e. metamaterials, we present here the first practical realization of a radial wave crystal. This type of device was introduced as a theoretical proposal in the field of acoustics, and can be briefly defined as a structured medium with radial symmetry, where the constitutive parameters are(More)
We develop a new method of solving Bethe-Salpeter (BS) equation for spinless particles. It is based on projecting the BS equation on the light-front (LF) plane and on the Nakanishi integral representation of the BS amplitude. The method is valid for any kernel given by the irreducible Feynman graphs and does not assume a transformation to the Euclidean(More)
We present results on the mass of the nucleon and the ∆ using two dynamical degenerate twisted mass quarks. The evaluation is performed at four quark masses corresponding to a pion mass in the range of 690-300 MeV on lattices of size 2.1 fm and 2.7 fm. We check for cutoff effects by evaluating these baryon masses on lattices of spatial size 2.1 fm with(More)
We present our preliminary results on the lowest moment x of quark distribution functions of the pion using two flavor dynamical simulations with Wilson twisted mass fermions at maximal twist. The calculation is done in a range of pion masses from 300 to 500 MeV. A stochastic source method is used to reduce inversions in calculating propagators. Finite(More)
We study relativistic effects in a system of two scalar particles interacting via a scalar exchange in the Light Front Dynamcis framework. The results are compared to those provided by Bethe-Salpeter and non relativistic equations. It is found in particular that for massive exchange, the relativistic description is of crucial importance even in the limit of(More)
