  • The interactions of 420—500 Me V/c K− in the 11T hydrogen bubble chamber HYBUC have been used to produce a sample of 120,000 σ± decays in flight1,2. We describe here how these decays were used to investigate the effects of longitudinal accelerations between 0.5 and 5.0 × 1015g on particle lifetimes. Any observed effect of acceleration on lifetime would indicate that the Lorentz transformation and/or the dynamics of particle decay is sensitive to acceleration. These data suggest that… CONTINUE READING
