Most widely held works by Yves Sacquin
Un Siècle de quanta by Michel Crozon( )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integrated in most phenomena of physics, quantum theory remains profoundly marked by the stages in development in the twentieth century. In this work, as a part of the sixth conference Physique et interrogations fondamentales (Physics and fundamental issues), physicists, historians of the sciences and philosophers celebrate the century of quanta
Symétrie et brisure de symétrie by Rencontre "Physique et interrogations fondamentales"( Book )

The void by F. E Close( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Nature abhors a vacuum', or so it was believed. From early efforts to create a perfect vacuum, the exploration of nothingness has driven scientists towards a deeper understanding of the nature of matter, space and time. From this striving came the development of the concept of fields, and the idea of the 'aether', which was thought to permeate all space, and was blown away by Einstein's work on relativity. Subsequent developments show that nothingness may be richer still, a seething vacuum full of virtual particles appearing and disappearing, and something like the old aether may be making a comeback as the 'Higgs Field'. The structure of even spacetime itself may be far more complex than meets the eye." "In this book, particle physicist and writer Frank Close tells the story of scientists' efforts to understand the Void. It is an account that begins with the ancient Greek philosophers and takes us through to the frontiers of modern science; from the absolute zero of temperature to the unimaginable heat of the Big Bang; from quantum uncertainty and curled up dimensions to the vastness of the cosmos. We are discovering that by seeking to understand the nature of the Void, we are confronting the enigma of why anything should exist at all."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Lucifer's legacy : the meaning of asymmetry by F. E Close( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lucifer's Legacy, physicist and broadcaster Frank Close explores the origins of asymmetry from life to the Universe at large, and asks whether this multitude of examples can be traced back to a single act that took place at the origin of our Universe. Inspired by a chance meeting with Lucifer in the Tuillerie gardens in Paris, Close takes the reader on a sweeping tour of asymmetry in the world around us, from the development of human embryos to the mysterious Higgs boson. His tour culminates in the research now underway in Switzerland, where scientists are preparing an experiment to recreate the Big Bang and hope to resolve the mystery of the original asymmetry

LA RECHERCHE DU BOSON DE HIGGS DU MODELE STANDARD MINIMAL SUR UN DOMAINE DE MASSES ETENDU A ETE MENEE PAR L'ANALYSE DES DONNEES ENREGISTREES PAR LE DETECTEUR DELPHI AUPRES DU LEP, CORRESPONDANT A ENVIRON 350000 DESINTEGRATIONS HADRONIQUES DU Z. LES ANALYSES PRESENTEES DANS LA THESE PERMETTENT D'EXCLURE L'EXISTENCE DU BOSON DE HIGGS POUR DES MASSES COMPRISES ENTRE 0 ET 34,5 GEV/C#2 A 95% DE NIVEAU DE CONFIANCE. LA LIMITE A 34,5 GEV/C#2 DECOULE DE LA RECHERCHE D'EVENEMENTS OU LE BOSON DE HIGGS PRODUIT SELON LE PROCESSUS DE BJORKEN EST ACCOMPAGNE D'UN BOSON Z VIRTUEL SE DESINTEGRANT EN DEUX MUONS. CETTE ANALYSE EST DESTINEE A ETRE COMBINEE AUX RECHERCHES EFFECTUEES DANS LES AUTRES HYPOTHESES DE DESINTEGRATION DU Z VIRTUEL. UN CHAPITRE DE LA THESE EST CONSACRE A LA CALIBRATION EN TEMPS ET A L'ETUDE LA RESOLUTION SPATIALE DE LA TPC DE DELPHI. CE TRAVAIL PERMET UNE BONNE COMPREHENSION DU DETECTEUR ET UNE AMELIORATION DE L'ACCORD ENTRE LA SIMULATION MONTE CARLO ET LES DONNEES REELLES

Étude de la formation d'antihydrogène neutre et ionisé dans les collisions antiproton-positronium by Pauline Comini( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The future CERN experiment called GBAR intends to measure the gravitational acceleration of antimatter on Earth using cold (neV) antihydrogen atoms undergoing a free fall. The experiment scheme first needs to cool antihydrogen positive ions, obtained thanks to two consecutive reactions occurring when an antiproton beam collides with a dense positronium cloud.The present thesis studies these two reactions in order to optimise the production of the anti-ions. The total cross sections of both reactions have been computed in the framework of a perturbation theory model (Continuum Distorted Wave - Final State), in the range 0 to 30 keV antiproton kinetic energy; several excited states of positronium have been investigated. These cross sections have then been integrated to a simulation of the interaction zone where antiprotons collide with positronium; the aim is to find the optimal experimental parameters for GBAR. The results suggest that the 2P, 3D or, to a lower extend, 1S states of positronium should be used, respectively with 2, less than 1 or 6 keV antiprotons. The importance of using short pulses of antiprotons has been underlined; the positronium will have to be confined in a tube of 20 mm length and 1 mm diameter.In the prospect of exciting the 1S-3D two-photon transition in positronium at 410 nm, a pulsed laser system had already been designed. It consists in the frequency doubling of an 820 nm pulsed titanium-sapphire laser. The last part of the thesis has been dedicated to the realisation of this laser system, which delivers short pulses (9 ns) of 4 mJ energy at 820 nm
