Involvement in particle physics experiments

This page serves to summarise the involvement of the group in particle physics and medium energy nuclear physics.

Previous Involvement

European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)

Experiment NA43
Experiment NA59
: Study of the use of a crystal as a 'quarter-wave plate' to produce high energy circularly polarized photons, and the development of new polarimetry technique. The experiment looked at the physics of coherent bremsstrahlung and pairproduction at around 150 GeV, including the polarisation phenomena and also developing technology for photon beamlines at these energies using crystal techniques. The collaboration has written two papers 1. hep-ex/0306041 2. hep-ex/0306028 and is almost finished with the final two papers. The future holds discussions around photon - photon colliders.

Current Involvement
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab)

Spring '03 Suite of Experiments
E00-108 Duality in Meson Electroproduction  
E01-002 Baryon Resonance Electroproduction
E00-116 Measurement of Hydrogen and Deuterium Inclusive Resonance Cross Sections at Intermediate Q2 for Parton-Hadron Duality Studies
E00-002 F2N at Low Q2
Possible Future Involvement
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab)
E03-008 Subthreshold J/psi Production
Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre (SLAC)
Experiments E159, E160 and E161: This is a suite of experiments using photon initiated reactions based on a diamond coherent bremsstrahlung target. E160, scheduled as the first to run, focuses on issues related to the J/Psi production mechanism and interaction crossection with normal nuclear matter and complements experiment E03-008 mentioned above.
