The measurement of primary π±, K±, p and p production at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.5) in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV performed with a large ion collider experiment at the large hadron collider (LHC) is reported. Particle identification is performed using the specific ionisation energy-loss and time-of-flight information, the ringimaging Cherenkov(More)
The Low Energy Neutron Source (LENS) at Indiana University will provide moderated neutrons in the meV energy range for materials and neutron physics research as well as MeV energy range neutrons for creating a high flux neutron test environment. Neutrons will be generated by colliding 13 MeV protons with a Be target. Since December 2004, using an existing(More)
A synchrotron has been constructed at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF) to inject 100 to 200 MeV protons into an electron cooled storage ring to perform nuclear physics experiments. The maximum synchrotron extraction is greater than 10 protons in a 20-ns wide pulse with a 1-Hz pulse repetition rate. These properties make it possible to(More)
The invariant differential cross sections for inclusive π0 and η mesons at midrapidity were measured in pp collisions at √ s = 2.76 TeV for transverse momenta 0.4 < pT < 40 GeV/c and 0.6 < pT < 20 GeV/c, respectively, using the ALICE detector. This large range in pT was achieved by combining various analysis techniques and different triggers involving the(More)
Indiana University has designed and finished construction of the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute (MPRI) [1] consisting of one treatment room with two fixed horizontal beam lines and two treatment rooms with isocentric gantries. The first treatment room has been operating since February 2004, while the first Gantry treatment room has been in use(More)
Many of the currently available fingerprinting methods have limited ability to visualize fingerprints on plastic tape without expensive equipment or significant handling of the sample. This is especially true for visualizing fingerprints on black electrical tape. This study sought a hands-off method to produce easy visualization of fingerprints on different(More)
We present results on transverse momentum (pt) and rapidity (y) differential production cross sections, mean transverse momentum and mean transverse momentum square of inclusive J/ψ and ψ(2S) at forward rapidity (2.5 < y < 4) as well as ψ(2S)-to-J/ψ cross section ratios. These quantities are measured in pp collisions at center of mass energies √ s = 5.02(More)
Low energy (5300 keV) electron cooling is a well-developed technology. In the past 5 years, 8 systems have been commissioned in the U.S. (I), Europe (6)) and Japan (1). We believe that intermediate-energy electron cooling, in the electron energy range of 110 MeV for cooling 2-20 GeV/nucleon ion beams, would be exploited on a similar scale if the technology(More)
