The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the information from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive brief Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne scan that searches for radio indications originating from ultra-high power neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the hunt for ultrahigh power neutrinos of astrophysical starting place is without doubt one of the notable experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA test was once designed to be the main delicate tool to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave history. The technique and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are offered within the thesis.

I've been instructing classes on experimental ideas in nuclear and particle physics to grasp scholars in physics and in engineering for a few years. This booklet grew out of the lecture notes I made for those scholars. The physics and engineering scholars have particularly assorted expectancies of what one of these path can be like.
Voici un essai sur les risks des centrales nucléaires qui donnera à réfléchir à tous les citoyens en général et aux moins de 30 ans en particulier, eux qui ne connaissent pas l’histoire de Tchernobyl, los angeles pire disaster technologique du XXe siècle. Tchernobyl, c’est loin, direz-vous, mais, les effets nocifs sur los angeles santé et l’environnement ne connaissent pas les distances et encore moins les frontières, sans parler de leurs durées inimaginables.
This publication fills the necessity for a coherent paintings combining rigorously reviewed articles right into a finished evaluate obtainable to analyze teams and academics. subsequent to basic physics, contributions on topical clinical and fabric technological know-how matters are included.
This textbook explains the experimental fundamentals, results and thought of nuclear physics. It helps studying and educating with a variety of labored examples, questions and issues of solutions. quite a few tables and diagrams aid to raised comprehend the reasons. a greater feeling to the topic of the booklet is given with sketches concerning the historic improvement of nuclear physics.
