Title:Accurate Calibration of Raman Systems [electronic resource] : At the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Experiment
Author(s): Magnus Schlsser
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Neutrinos can arguably be labeled as the most fascinating elementary particles known as their small but non-zero rest mass points to new mass generating mechanisms beyond the Standard Model, and also assigns primordial neutrinosfrom the Big Bang a di stinct role in shaping the evolution of large-scale structures in the universe. The open question of the absolute neutrino mass scale will be addressed by the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment,currently under construction. This thesis reports major contributions to developing and implementing new laser-spectroscopic precision tools to continuously monitor the isotope content of the windowless gaseous tritium source ofKATRIN. The method of choice, Raman spectroscopy, is ideally suited for in-s itu monitoring of all six hydrogen isotopologues. In a series of beautiful experiments the author obtained two independent novel calibration methods, firstbased on a comparison of experimental Raman depolarization ratios with corresponding quantum-chemica l calculations, and second on a gas sampling technique. Both methods yield consistent cross-calibration results and, as well asyielding improvements in precision, will be of major importance in reducing systematic effects in long-term neutrino mass measur ements. The methods developed in this thesis also have great potential to further broaden the applicationsof Raman spectroscopy to study extended sources such as in atmospheric physics.

Title:Measurement of the pep and CNO Solar Neutrino Interaction Rates in Borexino [electronic resource]
Author(s): Stefano Davini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Solar neutrino experiments have proved to be sensitive tools to test both astrophysical and elementary particle physics models. Neutrinos coming from the Sun offer a window into the inner workings of our star. Both the firstevidence and the first dis coveries of neutrino oscillations have come from experiments which detected neutrinos from the Sun. The Borexino experiment at Laboratory Nazionali del Gran Sasso is designed to perform solar neutrinospectroscopy below 2 MeV. The key feature that allow Bo rexino to pursue this physics program is its ultra low background level. This thesis is devoted to the first direct measurement of the pep and CNO solar neutrino interaction ratesin the Borexino experiment. The detection of the rare signals from pep and C NO solar neutrinos in Borexino requires novel analysis techniques, as the signal interaction rate in the active target is only a few counts per day, while thedominant background in the relevant energy region, the cosmogenic beta+ emitter carbon-11, produc ed in Borexino by cosmic muon interactions, is about 10 times higher

Title:Background Processes in the Electrostatic Spectrometers of the KATRIN Experiment [electronic resource]
Author(s): Susanne Mertens
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Neutrinos continue tobe the most mysterious and, arguably, the most fascinating particles of the Standard Model as their intrinsic properties such as absolute mass scale and CP properties are unknown. The open question of theabsolute neutrino mass sc ale will be addressed with unprecedented accuracy by the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment, currently under construction. This thesisfocusses on the spectrometer part of KATRIN and backgroundprocesses therein. Various background sources such as small Penning traps, as well as nuclear decays from single radon atoms are fully characterized here for the first time. Most importantly, however, it was possible to reduce thebackground in the spectrometer by more than five orders of magnitude by elim inating Penning traps and by developing a completely new background reduction method by stochastically heating trapped electrons using electron cyclotronresonance (ECR). The workbeautifully demonstrates that the obstacles and challenges in measuring the a bsolute mass scale of neutrinos can be met successfully if novel experimental tools (ECR) and novel computing methods(KASSIOPEIA) are combined to allow almost background-freetritium -spectroscopy

Title:The BL Phase Transition [electronic resource] : Implications for Cosmology and Neutrinos
Author(s): Kai Schmitz
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Several of the very foundations of the cosmological standard model the baryon asymmetry of the universe, dark matter, and the origin of the hot big bang itself still call for an explanation from the perspective offundamental physics. This workadvoc ates one intriguing possibility for a consistent cosmology that fills in the theoretical gaps while being fully in accordance with the observational data. At very high energies, the universe mighthave been in a false vacuum state that preserved B-L, the d ifference between the baryon number B and the lepton number L as a local symmetry. In this state, the universe experienced a stage of hybrid inflation that only ended when thefalse vacuum became unstable and decayed, in the course of a waterfall transitio n, into a phase with spontaneously broken B-L symmetry. This B-L Phase Transition was accompanied by tachyonic preheating that transferred almost theentire energy of the false vacuum into a gas of B-L Higgs bosons, which in turn decayed into heavy Majoran a neutrinos. Eventually, these neutrinos decayed into massless radiation, thereby producing the entropy of the hot big bang,generating the baryon asymmetry of the universe via the leptogenesis mechanism and setting the stage for the production of dark mat ter. Next to a variety of conceptual novelties and phenomenological predictions, the main achievement ofthe thesis is hence the fascinating notion that the leading role in the first act of our universe might have actually been played by neutrinos

Note:The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this work describes an analysis of the data from the second flight of the Antarctica Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne experiment that searches for radiosignals originating from ultra-high energy neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. The search for ultrahigh energy neutrinos of astrophysical origin is one of the outstanding experimental challenges of the21st century. The ANITA experiment was design ed to be the most sensitive instrument to ultra-high energy neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave background. The methodology and results ofthe neutrino and cosmic ray searches are presented in the thesis

Note:This is the updated, widely revised, restructured and expanded third edition of Lna et al.'s successful work Observational Astrophysics. It presents a synthesis on tools and methods of observational astrophysics of the early21st century. Written spec ifically for astrophysicists and graduate students, this textbook focuses on fundamental and sometimes practical limitations on the ultimate performance that an astronomical system may reach, rather thanpresenting particular systems in detail. In little m ore than a decade there has been extraordinary progress in imaging and detection technologies, in the fields of adaptive optics, optical interferometry, in the sub-millimetrewaveband, observation of neutrinos, discovery of exoplanets, to name but a few ex amples. The work deals with ground-based and space-based astronomy and their respective fields. And it also presents the ambitious concepts behind spacemissions aimed for the next decades. Avoiding particulars, it covers the whole of the electromagnetic s pectrum, and provides an introduction to the new forms of astronomy becoming possible with gravitational waves and neutrinos. Italso treats numerical aspects of observational astrophysics: signal processing, astronomical databases and virtual observatorie s

Note:Electroweak and Strong Interaction: Phenomenology, Concepts, Models, begins with relativistic quantum mechanics and some quantum field theory which lay the foundation for the rest of the text. The phenomenology and the physics ofthe fundamental inter actions are emphasized through a detailed discussion of the empirical fundamentals of unified theories of strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. The principles of local gauge theories are described both ina heuristic and a geometric framework. Th e minimal standard model of the fundamental interactions is developed in detail and characteristic applications are worked out. Possible signals of physics beyond that model, notably in thephysics of neutrinos are also discussed. Among the applications sc attering on nucleons and on nuclei provide salient examples. Numerous exercises with solutions make the text suitable for advanced courses or individual study. Thiscompletely updated revised new edition contains an enlarged chapter on quantum chromodynami cs and a widely updated chapter on neutrino physics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This current updated and expanded (this is an up-dated English translation of Prof. Khlopov's book Osnovy kosmomikrofiziki, URSS, 2004) text reflects the large number of scientific advances, both theoretical and experimental,within the discipline of cosmic particle physics in the last 10 years. Some of the topics that have been added or updated include but are not limited to: HND or CMD+HND scenarios being implemented into sterile neutrino scenarios, theramifications of extending the forms of dark ma tter with respect to our view of neutrinos, the origin of baryon matter and the need for nonbaryonic matter in current theories, problems the existence of dark matter raises with respectto cosmic particle physics and the relationship with (meta) stable (s uper) weakly interacting particles predicted by the extension of the standard model, restrictions on baryon and lepton photons, as well as problems associated withexpansion, just to name a few. These and many other topics are readdressed in light of recen t both experimental and theoretical developments. Other areas that will be of interest to the reader include the puzzles presented by directand indirect effects of dark matter (e.g, results of experiments such as DAMA/NaI, DAMA/LIBRA and PAMELA) and may l ead to nontrivial new solutions for the problem of its nature, like the existence of new stable families of quarks andleptons and composite dark matter scenario. The present work will be of interest to any researcher in this fascinating field dealing with fundamental interactions of the micro- and macroworld

Title:Matter, Dark Matter, and Anti-Matter [electronic resource] : In Search of the Hidden Universe

Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For over ten years, the dark side of the universe has been headline news. Detailed studies of the rotation of spiral galaxies, and 'mirages' created by clusters of galaxies bending the light from very remote objects, haveconvinced astronomers of the presence of large quantities of dark (unseen) matter in the cosmos. Moreover, in the 1990s, it was discovered that some four to five billion years ago the expansion of the universe entered a phase ofacceleration. This implies the existence of dark energy. The nature of these 'dark ingredients remains a mystery, but they seem to comprise about 95 percent of the matter/energy content of the universe. As for ordinary matter,although we are immersed in a sea of dark particles, including primordial neutrinos a nd photons from 'fossil' cosmological radiation, both we and our environment are made of ordinary, baryonic matter. Strangely, even if 15-20 percentof matter is baryonic matter, this represents only 4-5 percent of the total matter/energy content of the co smos. Here, authors Alain Mazure and Vincent Le Brun present the inventory of matter, both baryonic and exotic, andinvestigatethe nature and fate of matter's twin, anti-matter. According to the standard model, matter and anti-matter should have been forme d in equal quantities. Yet there seems to have been a very slight asymmetry, as yetunexplained, where 100,000,001 particles of matter formed for every 100,000,000 particles of anti-matter! The authors show how developments in technology have led to signif icant progress in scientific research and how, in tandem withthe evolution of new ideas, these advances are helping to lift the cosmic veil

Title:Model of the Response Function of CUORE Bolometers [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marco Vignati
Date:2011
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The neutrino is probably the most elusive elementary particle discovered so far. Its mass is very small and still unknown, and it is considered a key quantity in many theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Thesmallness of the mass co uld be explained if neutrinos are, unlike all other particles, equal to their own antiparticles, thus following the conjecture of E. Majorana. The double beta decay without emission of neutrinos is a nuclearprocess that can happen only if the neutrino is a Majorana particle. Observation of this decay would therefore necessarily imply that neutrinos are Majorana particles and would set the mass scale, a breakthrough in our understanding ofnature. The CUORE experiment will search for the neutrinoless double beta decay in 130Te, using 1 ton of TeO2 bolometric detectors. Bolometers are calorimeters that operate at cryogenic temperatures, able to measure the temperaturerise produced by the energy release of an impinging particle. They feature good resolution a nd low background, making them excellent detectors to search for rare decays. The performances of the experiment are currently limited bytemperature instabilities of the bolometers and by a poor understanding of their data. Measuring the energy deposited by a particle, in fact, is complicated and the shape of the signal depends on the energy. In this thesis a model ofthe signal of TeO2 bolometers is developed. It is able to explain the origin of the unwanted features that would limit the performances of C UORE. The application of the model to data from test bolometers led to great improvements ofthe results in terms of energy resolution, energy calibration, and signal shape discrimination. This thesis has been awarded at the Department of Physics, Universi ta di Roma - La Sapienza, Italy. With a Foreword by Professor FernandoFerroni

Title:Muonium-antimuonium Oscillations in an Extended Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The muonium-antimuonium oscillation process has been studied for decades both experimentally and theoretically. Of particular interest is that such a muonium-antimuonium oscillation is totally forbidden within the Standard Modelbecause the process vi olates the individual electron and muon number conservation laws by two units. Hence, its observation will be a clear signal of physics beyond the Standard Model. This thesis involves the computation of themuonium-antimuonium oscillation time scale in a v ariety of Standard Model extensions. First, the gauge independence of the various 1-loop contributions to this process is demonstrated in the Standard Model modified only with theinclusion of right-handed neutrinos which were used to generate light neutri no masses via the see-saw mechanism.Next the muonium-antimuonium oscillation time scale in a supersymmetric (SUSY) extension of the Standard Model iscalculated. The lower bound on the ratio of the two Higgs field VEVs is also discussed by using experiment al results. This Doctoral Thesis has been accepted by Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA

Note:The discovery of neutrino oscillations opened a new era in neutrino physics: an era of investigation of neutrino masses, mixing, magnetic moments and other neutrino properties. On the other hand small neutrino masses cannot beexplained by the standar d Higgs mechanism of mass generation. Thus, small neutrino masses are the first signature in particle physics of a new beyond the Standard Model physics. One of the most important challenges ahead is the problemof the very nature of neutrinos with definit e masses: are they Dirac neutrinos possessing a conserved lepton number which distinguish neutrinos and antineutrinos or Majorana neutrinos with identical neutrinos and antineutrinos? Manyexperiments of the next generation and new neutrino facilities are now under preparation and investigation. This book is intended as an gentle but detailed introduction to the physics of massive and mixed neutrinos that will preparegraduate students and young researchers entering the field for the exciting years of neutr ino physics to come. It is based on numerous lectures given by the author, one of the pioneers of modern neutrino physics (recipient of the BrunoPontecorvo Prize 2002), at different institutions and schools

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The dark matter problem is one of the most fundamental and profoundly difficult to solve problems in the history of science. Not knowing what makes up most of the known universe goes to the heart of our understanding of theUniverse and our place in i t. In Search of Dark Matter is the story of the emergence of the dark matter problem, from the initial erroneous discovery of dark matter by Jan Oort to contemporary explanations for the nature of darkmatter and its role in the origin and evolution of the Universe. Written for the educated non-scientist and scientist alike, it spans a variety of scientific disciplines, from observational astronomy to particle physics. Concepts thatthe reader will encounter along the way are at the cutting edge of scientif ic research. However the themes are explained in such a way that no prior understanding of science beyond a high school education is necessary

Note:This volume contains the Lectures and selected participant contributions to the 14th Course of the International School of Cosmic Rays Astrophysics, a NATO Advanced Study Institute. Well known astrophysicists and astronomersdiscuss different aspects of the generation of high energy signals in powerful astrophysical objects concentrating on the production of neutrinos and gamma rays from high energy particle interactions. Recent results from newexperiments and observatories are presented. Topics cover a wide range including the Spitzer infrared observatory, TeV gamma ray observations, dark matter, and neutrino telescopes. The combination of basic knowledge about theproduction of high energy signals with information about the data analysis of ongoing o bservations places the book between the usual levels of a textbook and a conference proceedings. It will give the reader a good introduction to thecurrent field of astroparticle physics, and some of the fascinating astrophysics being addressed
