126 Saam, BrianWall relaxation of 3He in spin-exchange cellsThe 3He longitudinal spin-relaxation rate T1-1 is crucial for production of highly polarized 3He by spin-exchange optical pumping. We show that T1-1 is increased by a factor of 2-20 solely by exposure of spin-exchange cells to a few-kG magnetic field. The original T1-1 can be restored by degaussing ...Wall relaxation; Spin-exchange cells; 3He; Longitudinal spin-relaxation; Spin-exchange optical pumping; SEOP; Hyperpolarized 3He; Surface magnetism; Glass cells2001-09
127 Vardeny, Zeev ValentineOptical studies of metallodielectric photonic crystals: bismuth and gallium infiltrated opalsWe have fabricated three-dimensional metallodielectric photonic crystals that consist of bismuth and gallium metals infiltrated into porous synthetic opals that have 300 nm diam silica balls.

128 Vardeny, Zeev ValentineSpecific heats and lattice dynamics of cuprous halidesThe specific heats Cp(T) of CuCl, CuBr, and Cul were measured by the adiabatic calorimetric technique.

129 Wu, Yong-ShiNear-horizon Virasoro symmetry and the entropy of de Sitter space in any dimensionDe Sitter spacetime is known to have a cosmological horizon that enjoys thermodynamic-like properties similar to those of a black hole horizon. In this note we show that a universal argument can be given for the entropy of de Sitter spacetime in arbitrary dimensions, by generalizing a recent near ho...1999-05
130 Symko, Orest GeorgeSize considerations in interfacing thermoacoustic coolers with electronicsSmall thermoacoustic coolers heat pumps show much promise for heat management in microcircuits, especially since they can be miniaturized for interfacing with circuits. Usually they are operated in the resonant mode with sound pumping heat; the device dimensions are reduced when the acoustic pump fr...Thermoacoustic coolers; Heat management; Microcircuits; Miniturization2002
131 Vardeny, Zeev ValentineHigh-pressure study of picosecond exciton dynamics in solid C60We have studied the singlet exciton decay by picosecond photoinduced absorption in films of Qo, under pressures up to 62 kbar. The picosecond decay of excitons excited in the absorption tail continues to be dominated by broad distributions of lifetimes at high pressure. These results suggest that th...Picosecond exciton dynamics; Solid C601994-08

135 Sokolsky, PierreEnergy estimation of UHE cosmic rays using the atmospheric fluorescence techniqueWe use the CORSIKA air shower simulation program to review the method for assigning energies to ultra-high energy (UHE) cosmic rays viewed with the air fluorescence technique. This technique uses the atmosphere as a calorimeter, and we determine the corrections that must be made to the calorimetric ...Fluorescence; Energy estimation; Ultra-high energy cosmic rays2000-08
136 DeTar, CarletonHigh-precision lattice QCD confronts experimentThe recently developed Symanzik-improved staggered-quark discretization allows unquenched lattice-QCD simulations with much smaller (and more realistic) quark masses than previously possible. To test this formalism, we compare experiment with a variety of nonperturbative calculations in QCD draw...Staggered quarks2004-01

139 Gondolo, PaoloCosmic ray positron excess and neutralino dark matterUsing a new instrument, the HEAT Collaboration has confirmed the excess of cosmic ray positrons that they first detected in 1994. We explore the possibility that this excess is due to the annihilation of neutralino dark matter in the galactic halo. We confirm that neutralino annihilation can produ...Neutralinos; Supersymmetric models; Positron flux; Annihilations2002-02
140 Wu, Yong-ShiGround-state degeneracy in the Levin-Wen model for topological phasesWe study the properties of topological phases by calculating the ground-state degeneracy (GSD) of the two-dimensional Levin-Wen (LW) model. Here it is explicitly shown that the GSD depends only on the spatial topology of the system. Then we show that the ground state on a sphere is always nondegener...2012-01-01
