Towards a precision measurement of the half life of neutrinoless double beta decay of 136Xe by Francisco Richard LePort( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent neutrino oscillation experiments provide proof that neutrinos are massive par- ticles, but the absolute neutrino mass scale remains unknown. Observation of neu- trinoless double beta-decay (0vBB), a hypothetical nuclear transition, would provide information on the absolute neutrino mass scale. This decay violates lepton number conservation and requires that neutrinos are massive Majorana particles. Current limits on the half-life of 0vBB are in excess of 10^25 yr. The 200 kg Enriched Xenon Observatory experiment (EXO-200) is a double beta-decay exper- iment designed to improve upon this limit. It is currently in the early stages of commissioning at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, New Mexico. This work discusses first the use of liquid xenon as source and detector medium for double beta decay. The design and construction of EXO-200 is then presented, including a detailed prediction of detector backgrounds and sensitivity

Particle populations and high energy emission in pulsar wind nebulae by Albert Adam Van Etten( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Energetic particles streaming out from rapidly spinning neutron stars radiate across the electromagnetic spectrum, creating a pulsar wind nebula (PWN). Many PWNe are spatially resolved in the radio, X-ray, and even gamma-ray wavebands, and thereby provide an excellent laboratory to study not only pulsar winds and dynamics, but also shock processes, magnetic field evolution, and particle transport. Single-zone spectral energy distribution (SED) models have long been used to study the global properties of PWNe, but to fully take advantage of high spatial resolution data one must move beyond these simple models. Supported by multiple X-ray PWN observations, we describe multi-zone time-dependent SED model fitting, with particular emphasis on the spatial variations within nebulae. The SED model constrains the wind velocity profile, magnetic field profile, age and spin-down history of the central pulsar, and the PWN injection spectrum. These constraints are of great value to the study of the gamma-ray pulsar population, and to investigations of particle acceleration and the cosmic ray spectrum. The large size of many PWNe in the very high energy gamma-ray (TeV) regime is indicative of significant particle transport over the pulsar lifetime, and in the case study of HESS J1825-137 we find that rapid diffusion of high energy particles is required to match the multi-wavelength data

On the emission of gamma rays by young pulsars by Kyle Padia Watters( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The gamma-ray emission from young rotation-powered pulsars has been studied in detail. The antenna patterns of emission are calculated for a variety of geometric emission models. These antenna patterns vary with magnetic inclination and spindown power; correspondingly, libraries of emission patterns are calculated across the phase space of possible parameter combinations. These libraries allow one to explore the possible gamma-ray light curves under a given model, for a given set of input parameters. A method of quantitative comparison was developed to allow the determination of a goodness-of-fit between an observed pulsar light curve and all of the possible simulated light curves for a given model. This method can localize the region of input parameter space that produces a model's best fit to an observed light curve. This can then be compared to external constraints on input parameters, often supplied by observations at other wavelengths (i.e., radio polarization and x-ray morphology). Finally, a simulation is run to reproduce the Galactic young pulsar population as faithfully as possible. Onto this population we apply the antenna patterns of various models in order to study the properties of the young gamma-ray pulsar population as a whole, constraining properties of the objects and evaluating the ability of the geometric gamma-ray models to reproduce the population-wide distributions of observables
