Measurement of $γ$ rays from the giant resonances excited by $\rm^{12}C$(\textit{p,p}$^\prime$) reaction at 392 MeV and 0$ ^{\circ}$Jun 23 2019We measured both the differential cross section ($\sigma_{p,p^\prime}$ $=d^2\sigma/d\Omega dE_{x}$) and the $\gamma$-ray emission probability ($R_\gamma(E_x)$ $=\sigma_{p,p^\prime\gamma}$/$\sigma_{p,p^\prime}$) from the giant resonances excited by $\rm^{12}C$(\textit{p,p}$^\prime$) ...

Physics with Positron Beams at Jefferson Lab 12 GeVJun 22 2019Positron beams, both polarized and unpolarized, are identified as essential ingredients for the experimental program at the next generation of lepton accelerators. In the context of the Hadronic Physics program at the Jefferson Laboratory (JLab), positron ... More
Measurement of away-side broadening with self-subtraction of flow in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_\mathrm{NN}}}=200$ GeVJun 22 2019High transverse momentum ($p_T$) particle production is suppressed due to parton (jet) energy loss in the hot dense medium created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Redistribution of energy at low-to-modest $p_T$ has been elusive to measure because ... More
Perspectives of photon physics at future collidersJun 21 2019We review current results on physics with photons at the LHC and discuss realistic perspectives of photon physics at future colliders. In particular, we focus on Standard Model (SM) measurements with photons at the upcoming high-luminosity and a possible ... More
$^7$Be and $^7$Li nuclei within the no-core shell model with continuumJun 21 2019The production of $^7$Be and $^7$Li nuclei plays an important role in primordial nucleosynthesis, nuclear astrophysics, and fusion energy generation. The $^3\mathrm{He}(\alpha , \gamma) ^7\mathrm{Be}$ and $^3\mathrm{H}(\alpha , \gamma) ^7\mathrm{Li}$ ... More
Long Term Logarithmic Annealing in p-MNOS RADFETs and Renormalization of Relaxation ParametersJun 21 2019It was experimentally shown that annealing (fading) of the pMNOS based dosimeters has close to logarithmic temporal dependence during and after irradiation. The results are shown to be consistent with the previously proposed model.
Beam-energy dependence of identified two-particle angular correlations in Au+Au collisions at RHICJun 21 2019The two-particle angular correlation functions, $R_2$, of pions, kaons, and protons in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=$ 7.7, 11.5, 14.5, 19.6, 27, 39, 62.4, and 200 GeV were measured by the STAR experiment at RHIC. These correlations were measured ... More
Effects of dense medium on parameters of doubly heavy baryonsJun 21 2019The spectroscopic properties of the doubly heavy spin-$1/2$ baryons $\Xi_{QQ'}$, $\Xi'_{QQ'}$, $\Omega_{QQ'}$ and $\Omega'_{QQ'}$, with heavy quarks $Q$ and $Q'$ being $b$ or/and $c$, are investigated in cold nuclear matter. In particular, the behavior ... More
