The Supernova / Acceleration Probe (SNAP) is a proposed space-based experiment designed to study the dark energy and alternative explanations of the acceleration of the Universe's expansion by performing a series of complementary systematics-controlled astrophysical measurements. We here describe a 1 self-consistent reference mission design that can(More)
In this study, an electrode system consisting of twelve small platinum dot electrodes imbedded in a spiral silicone rubber insulating cuff was used to investigate the feasibility of selective (regional) stimulation of the median nerves of the raccoon. Acute experiments in four raccoons consisted of functional responses observations, isometric force(More)
We establish the existence of the top quark using a 67 pb ' data sample of pp collisions at ~s = 1.8 TeV collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). Employing techniques similar to those we previously published, we observe a signal consistent with tt decay to WWbb, but inconsistent with the background prediction by 4.8o.. Additional evidence for(More)
We present the results of a search for the top quark in 19.3 pb ?1 of p p collisions at p s = 1.8 TeV. The data were collected at the Fermilab Tevatron collider using the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). The search includes Standard Model t t decays to nal states eee , eee , and as well as e + + jets or + + jets. In the (e,) + + jets channel we search(More)
We report the observation and confirmation of the first group-and cluster-scale strong gravitational lensing systems found in Dark Energy Survey data. Through visual inspection of data from the Science Verification season, we identified 53 candidate systems. We then obtained spectroscopic follow-up of 21 candidates using the Gemini Multi-object Spectrograph(More)
We report the discovery of eight new Milky Way companions in ~1800 deg 2 of optical imaging data collected during the first year of the Dark Energy Survey (DES). Each system is identified as a statistically significant over-density of individual stars consistent with the expected isochrone and luminosity function of an old and metal-poor stellar population.(More)

The High Intensity Neutrino Source (HINS) is a research project to address accelerator physics and technology questions for a new-concept, low-energy, high-intensity, long-pulse H-superconducting linac. HINS will consist of a 50 kKeV ion source, a 2.5 MeV Radiofrequency Quadrupole (RFQ), and a 10 MeV room temperature spoke resonator acceleration section,(More)
A linear accelerator test facility called the High Intensity Neutrino Source (HINS) has begun operating at Fermilab. The goal of this program is to test new technology for the front end of an intensity frontier linac. Some of the new technologies that will be tested include: operation of multiple cavities from a single RF source using high-power vector(More)
The raccoon was evaluated as an animal model for upper limb neural prosthetics. This animal was selected primarily because the functional use of its forelimb mimics in many ways the usage in humans and because of its optimal size and commercial availability. Eight cadaver and fresh specimen forearms were dissected. Important characteristics of the raccoon(More)
