About the Edition

Leading neutrons produced in high energy electron-proton collisions at a center-of-momentum energy of 318 GeV2 are studied with the Forward Neutron Detector of the ZEUS experiment at the HERA collider. The Forward Neutron Detector consists of the Forward Neutron Calorimeter and the newly implemented Forward Neutron Tracker. The detectors and their calibration are presented. The transverse momentum squared, p2T , distributions of leading neutrons in bins of xL, the fraction of the proton energy carried by the neutron, have been measured using the Forward Neutron Tracker. The measurements were made using data samples in deep inelastic scattering and photoproduction, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 21 pb-1 and 9.3 pb-1, respectively. The distributions are fitted with an exponential, and the slopes are presented as a function of xL. The results are compared to models of one pion exchange and to leading proton measurements. The xL distributions of the photoproduced neutrons are measured for different bins of t, the invariant momentum transfer squared. The (1 - xL) distributions satisfy a power law dN/dxL ∝ (1 - xL)a (t) with the powers a(t) lying on a linear trajectory in t: a(t) = 1.08 +/- 1.08+0.40-0.42 - (2.78 +/- 0.32+0.31-0.41 GeV-2)t. This result is consistent with that expected from pion exchange and with previous measurements. The neutron energy distributions are compared for different values of momentum transfer squared between the electron and the proton and the results are discussed in the context of models of absorption.

The ICHEP is the vital platform for exchanging recent achievements and discussing future facilities in particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. The first conference was held at Rochester in Since then, the ICHEP has served as the core arena for leading experimentalists and theorists of the world to share exciting results and new ideas. The most non-trivial of the established microscopic theories of physics is QCD: the theory of the strong interaction. A critical link between theory and experiment is provided by the methods of perturbative QCD, notably the well-known factorization by:

Leading neutron physics at HERA using the forward neutron detector at ZEUS by Thorsten Koop Download PDF EPUB FB2

The production of energetic neutrons in ep collisions has been studied with the ZEUS detector at HERA. The neutron energy and distributions were measured with a forward neutron calorimeter and. The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information. Description; Chapters; Supplementary; The proceedings of DIS present the most updated status of deep inelastic scattering (DIS) physics.

Topics like structure function measurements and phenomenology, QCD studies in DIS and photoproduction, spin physics and diffractive interactions are reviewed in detail, with emphasis on those studies that push the test of QCD and the Standard.

Tracking Elements of the ZEUS Detector. Introduction. Both of the experiments planned for HERA, ZEUS and H1, have specialized tracking detectors in the forward direction because of the beam asymmetry mentioned previously.

At ZEUS, there are four separate tracking chambers. If the address matches an existing account you will receive an email with instructions to reset your password. Recently the ZEUS and HI collab- orations at HERA have installed forward neutron calorimeters (FNC) which provide additional experimental information.

In analogy to the hadronic reaction pp -+ nX, the pion exchange is expected to be the dominant mech- anism of the fast neutron production also at HERA Author: A.

Widely used in high-energy and particle physics, gaseous radiation detectors are undergoing continuous development. The first part of this book provides a solid background for understanding the basic processes leading to the detection and tracking of charged particles, photons, and by: Measurement of dijet cross sections in ep interactions with a leading neutron in HERA.

In the area of inclusive DIS, both H1 and ZEUS completed last year their high Q2 Neutral and Charged current measurements exploiting the large statistics from the HERA II running period. For inclusive charm production, H1 and ZEUS published a combination of numerous existing measurements based on various tagging methods.

Much of the physics of nuclei and polarisation has been studied at previous workshops, and frequent reference was made to the HERA eA workshops [1], to the HERA spin workshops [2], to the EIC white book [3], to the THERA book [4], to the TESLA-N [5] and to the ELFE [6] proposals.
