Particle therapy uses proton or 12-C beams for the treatment of deep-seated solid tumors. Due to the features of energy deposition of charged particles a small amount of dose is released to the healthy tissue in the beam entrance region, while the maximum of the dose is released to the tumor at the end of the beam range, in the Bragg peak region. Dose deposition is dominated by...
75. First measurement of the charge form factor of the proton at very low Q2 with Initial State Radiation
Dr Harald Merkel (Institut für Kernphysik, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz)
In this talk, a new experimental method based on initial-state radiation (ISR) in e-p scattering will be presented, in which the radiative tail of the elastic e-p peak is used to extract information on the proton charge form factor (G_E^p) at extremely small Q^2. The ISR technique was validated in a dedicated experiment using the spectrometers of the A1-Collaboration at the Mainz...

Strongly interacting matter at high densities and temperatures can be created and carefully studied under laboratory conditions in high-energy collisions of heavy atomic nuclei. Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) provide particular good probes to study the so-called Quark-Gluon Plasma state and its evolution since they are predominantly produced in initial hard partonic scattering processes in...

In the Standard Model, electrons, muons, and tau leptons have identical electroweak gauge interactions, a hypothesis known as lepton universality. PIENU is a high precision measurement of the ratio of the rate of the pion decay to electron plus neutrino compared to pion decay to muon plus neutrino, including radiative processes. The SM theoretical prediction of this ratio is one of the most...

This work constitutes one part of an investigation of the low-temperature changes of the properties of the eta-prime meson. In turn these properties are strongly tied to the U(1) axial anomaly of Quantum Chromodynamics. The final aim is to explore the interplay of the chiral anomaly and in-medium effects. We determine the lifetime of an eta-prime meson being at rest in a strongly interacting...

Modifications of basic properties of kaons, like mass and decay constants, in hot and dense nuclear medium, often parameterized by the in-medium potentials, are an intensely studied topic in the last two decades. However, until recently the experimental samples obtained from the heavy-ion collisions at 1-2A GeV, used to draw conclusions on the scale of these potentials were limited to...

The R&D project on the micro-Resistive-WELL (μ-RWELL) detector technology aims in developing a new scalable, compact, spark-protected, single amplification stage Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD) for large area HEP applications as tracking and calorimeter device as well as for industrial and medical applications as X-ray and neutron imaging gas pixel detector. The novel micro-structure,...
