We perform our analysis using the SYNOW code, which is well suited to track the distribution of the ions with velocity ... More

Detectors and Concepts for sub-100 ps timing with gaseous detectorsJun 27 2016Jul 06 2016We give a short compendium of the main ongoing detectors and concepts capable of performing accurate sub-100 ps timing at high particle fluxes and on large areas, through technologies based on gaseous media. We briefly discuss the state-of-the-art, technological ... More

Complex oscillator and Painlevé IV equationMar 27 2015Supersymmetric quantum mechanics is a powerful tool for generating exactly solvable potentials departing from a given initial one. In this article the first- and second- order supersymmetric transformations will be used to obtain new exactly solvable ... More
