View Resource Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration

This learning resources comprise a healthy introduction to charged particle acceleration. The site, by Stanley Humphries, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at University of New Mexico, amounts to an online textbook (.pdf) introducing the theory of charged particle acceleration. The book's fifteen chapters (with bibliography) summarize "the principles underlying all particle...
View Resource The PS Complex as Proton Pre-injector for the LHC Design and Implementation Report

CERN has recently posted this new preprint. The publication is a report of the beam requirements, accelerator upgrades, and new RF harmonics and cavity design to be incorporated into the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN's latest particle accelerator. The preprint can be downloaded in either .pdf or .ps format.
View Resource Bulk Physics at a Graviton Factory

Provided by the Stanford Liner Accelerator Center (SLAC) Pre-print server, this online pre-print demonstrates that large numbers of light Kaluza Klein (KK) resonances could be produced at a future lepton-collider-based "Graviton Factory." "A general prediction of the 5-d Randall-Sundrum (RS) hierarchy model is the emergence of spin-2 KK gravitons with weak scale masses and couplings. The lowest...
View Resource Physical Reference Data

National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Physical Reference Data Web site (last mentioned in the August 16, 1996 Scout Report) provides data on physical constants, ionization, x-ray and gamma-ray, radiation dosimetry, nuclear and condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular spectroscopic data, and more. For example, within the searchable physical constants page, visitors can find...
View Resource T-2 Nuclear Information Service

The T-2 Nuclear Information Service Web Site is presented by Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is operated by the University of California for the US Department of Energy. The site "concentrates on nuclear modeling, nuclear data, cross sections, nuclear masses, ENDF, NJOY data processing, nuclear astrophysics, radioactivity, radiation shielding, data for medical radiotherapy, data for...
View Resource ABC's of Nuclear Science

Produced by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the ABC's of Nuclear Science site gives high school students and perhaps even entry level college students a good general overview of nuclear science. Through descriptions and illustrations, students get to explore nuclear structure; radioactivity; alpha, beta, and gamma decay; half-life; reactions; fusion; fission; cosmic rays; and...
View Resource GENIE: A General Internet Search Engine for Atomic Data

The Atomic and Molecular Data Unit, which operates within the Nuclear Data Section of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Austria, maintains the General Internet Search Engine for Atomic Data (GENIE). The tool allows users to choose from two data types. The first is Oscillator Strengths and/or Transition Probabilities, which includes six databases. Users can specify the ion and the...
View Resource International Atomic Energy Agency: Nuclear Data Section/Atomic and Molecular Data Unit

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1999 announced the new Aladdin Database Server, a numerical database for fusion energy research and other plasma science and technology applications. The Aladdin Database Server contains four databases: Collisional Database, H Neutral Beam Database, Particle-Surface Interactions, and Elementary Processes in H-He Plasmas. A Glossary is provided to...
View Resource T-2 Nuclear Information Service

This Web site, provided by the T-2 Nuclear Information Service, is part of the Theoretical Division of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The site allows students to explore the structure of atomic nuclei, the analysis of interactions between nuclear radiation and matter, how data is used to study nuclear science, and who does this type of work. The tour's language is non-technical and includes...
View Resource ALICE: A Large Ion Collider Experiment at CERN LHC

This website features the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) collaboration's aim to "study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where the formation of a new phase of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, is expected." The Public section of the website features the construction plan for the detector located at CERN, which will be optimized for heavy-ion physics....
