The first magnetic resonance imaging studies of laser-polarized (129)Xe, dissolved in the blood and tissue of the lungs and the heart of Sprague-Dawley rats, are described. (129)Xe resonances at 0, 192, 199, and 210 ppm were observed and assigned to xenon in gas, fat, tissue, and blood, respectively. One-dimensional chemical-shift imaging (CSI) reveals(More)
The feasibility of brain MRI with laser-polarized 129Xe in a small animal model is demonstrated. Naturally abundant 129Xe is polarized and introduced into the lungs of Sprague-Dawley rats. Polarized xenon gas dissolves in the blood and is transported to the brain where it accumulates in brain tissue. Spectroscopic studies reveal a single, dominant,(More)
The neutron longitudinal and transverse asymmetries A n 1 and A n 2 have been extracted from deep inelas-tic scattering of polarized electrons by a polarized 3 He target at incident energies of 19.42, 22.66 and 25.51 GeV. The measurement allows for the determination of the neutron spin structure functions g n 1 (x; Q 2) and g n 2 (x; Q 2) over the range(More)
We present a Next-to-Leading order perturbative QCD analysis of world data on the spin dependent structure functions g p 1 , g n 1 , and g d 1 , including the new experimental information on the Q 2 dependence of g n 1. Careful attention is paid to the experimental and theoretical uncertainties. The data constrain the first moments of the polarized valence(More)
There is strong circumstantial evidence that certain heavy, unstable atomic nuclei are 'octupole deformed', that is, distorted into a pear shape. This contrasts with the more prevalent rugby-ball shape of nuclei with reflection-symmetric, quadrupole deformations. The elusive octupole deformed nuclei are of importance for nuclear structure theory, and also(More)
We report the results of an improved determination of the triple correlation DP·(p(e)×p(v)) that can be used to limit possible time-reversal invariance in the beta decay of polarized neutrons and constrain extensions to the standard model. Our result is D=[-0.96±1.89(stat)±1.01(sys)]×10(-4). The corresponding phase between gA and gV is ϕAV=180.013°±0.028°(More)
A perfusion phantom with unique features and a wide variety of applications in MR and other imaging modalities is presented. Using microfabrication technique, a network of microchannels, in the scale of actual microvasculature, was created. The geometry of the network was determined based on Murrays minimum work law to simulate the hemodynamic in actual(More)
