One-hundred twenty-nine very low-birthweight infants were treated in Newborn and Infant Care Department of Children's Memorial Health Institute between 1985 and 1994; 89 were taken to prospective neurodevelopmental care. The newborns were divided into two groups. Group I had 38 preterm infants born from 1985 to 1989 and followed up at 7 to 11 years of age.(More)
A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B(+) → K(+)μ(+)μ(-) and B(+) → K(+)e(+)e(-) decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1), recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton(More)
Using pp collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb(-1) and collected by LHCb in 2011 at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, we report the measurement of direct CP violation in B(s)(0)→K(-)π(+) decays, A(CP)(B(s)(0)→K(-)π(+)=0.27±0.04 (stat)±0.01 (syst), with significance exceeding 5 standard deviations. This is the first observation(More)
Resonant structures in B^{0}→ψ^{'}π^{-}K^{+} decays are analyzed by performing a four-dimensional fit of the decay amplitude, using pp collision data corresponding to 3  fb^{-1} collected with the LHCb detector. The data cannot be described with K^{+}π^{-} resonances alone, which is confirmed with a model-independent approach. A highly significant(More)
An angular analysis of the decay J /ψ → μ + μ − is performed to measure the polarization of prompt J /ψ mesons produced in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. The dataset corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 0.37 fb −1 collected with the LHCb detector. The measurement is presented as a function of transverse momentum, p T , and rapid-ity, y, of the J /ψ(More)
A broad peaking structure is observed in the dimuon spectrum of B+ → K+ μ+ μ- decays in the kinematic region where the kaon has a low recoil against the dimuon system. The structure is consistent with interference between the B+ → K+ μ+ μ- decay and a resonance and has a statistical significance exceeding six standard deviations. The mean and width of the(More)
The P̅ANDA experiment will be built at the FAIR facility at Darmstadt (Germany) to perform accurate tests of the strong interaction through p̅p and p̅A annihilation's studies. To track charged particles, two systems consisting of a set of planar, closed-packed, self-supporting straw tube layers are under construction. The P̅ANDA(More)
The design and measurements of the prototype general purpose digital to analog converter for readout systems in high energy physics experiments are presented. The main goals for the proposed DAC are low power consumptions, small die area and high output swing. The 10 bit DAC design is based on current steering architecture comprising high swing class AB(More)
The design and measurement results of the prototype 1.5-bit stages developed for a 10 bit pipeline ADC for the luminosity detector (LumiCal) at International Linear Collider (ILC) are discussed. The motivation for the chosen architecture is presented and followed by the description of core analog blocks in a 1.5-bit stage pipeline ADC. The prototype stages(More)
