Nuclear physics by Luke C. L Yuan( Book )

42 editions published between 1961 and 1963 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of experimental nuclear physics has in the last two decades, experienced a tremendous growth of activity in all its branches. The difficulty in performing nuclear physics experiments is also greatly multiplied with the increasing complexities of the problems involved. There are, at present, many articles and books which give excellent reviews on basic principles and details of techniques of various detectors, methods and specific topics in nuclear physics. But it is often hard to obtain comprehensive information on the principal methods and their relative merits for the measurement of a specific physical quantity in the field of nuclear physics. This knowledge is especially desirable when one wishes to make a choice among the various methods on the basis of their feasibility, the accuracies attainable, and the limitations in their application under specific conditions. For any specific method of measurement, the comprehensive procedure of converting the experimental data into the desired physical quantities including the necessary corrections involved is often not explicitly mentioned in the literature. It is the intention of the present volume to try to meet some of the requirements mentioned above. All possible methods that deal with the measurement of each particular physical quantity are grouped together so as to achieve a more coherent presentation. Furthermore, the scope of this book is not limited to the usual treatment of low energy nuclear physics only, but it comprises both the high and low energy regions. We hope that this volume will serve as an informative source and as a reference book for physicists in general and, in particular, as an instructive and useful guide for all those who are interested in doing research in this field

Muon physics by Vernon Hughes( Book )

The origin of the third family : in honour of A. Zichichi on the XXX anniversary of the proposal to search for the Third Lepton at Adone( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume has two main components: reports and testimonies. Both will allow the reader to know how this new field of physics was opened, how it gave rise to new technological developments (now still of great value for electron and muon detection), and how much work was needed for the "peculiar symmetry" to be so "short-lived."

Vol. 3
Magnetohydrodynamic-hypersonic viscous and inviscid flow near the stagnation point of a blunt body by M. C Smith( Book )

4 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The equations governing the hypersonic flow about a magnetized body are solved numerically. The solutions obtained illustrate the effects of Reynolds number and magnetic parameter on the structure of the applied magnetic field. The results show that, for magnetic parameters larger than a critical value, numerical solutions do not exist. A critical magnetic parameter is considered to result from an assumption of a given magnetic field at the shock. By increasing the conductivity, and thereby the induced magnetic field, the applied field at the shock disappears. This in turn violates the basic assumption of a finite field at the shock. It is concluded that the applied magnetic field can be defined only at the body where it is a natural characteristic of the problem. (Author)
The beta-ray spectra of Cu⁶⁴ by C. S Wu( Book )

5 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positron and negatron spectra of Cu(64) have been investigated in the Columbia solenoid beta-ray spectrometer. By using thinner and more uniform sources and employing a more rigorous Coulomb correction factor, the deviations at the low energy region were greatly reduced as compared with previous work reported from other laboratories. It seems probable that the remaining small observed deviation is instrumental and the Cu(64) spectra are actually of the allowed type

Portable alpha-activity measuring instrument by C. S Wu( Book )

3 editions published between 1945 and 1948 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portable sensitive alpha-particle detector has been developed for scanning and surveying small amounts of U-metal on various surfaces. Although there are various possible ways of detecting alpha particles, for the sake of simplicity and serviceability, the method using an ionization chamber in connection with a portable electrometer circuit is employed. Units built in this laboratory have proven very satisfactory. The high sensitivity that has been achieved with these instruments approximates counter sensitivities
