Nuclear Levels as Analyzers of High Energy Interactions
The theme of the talk is measurement, and how a clever experiment can eliminate the need for complex, model-dependent analysis.
My thesis demonstrated the ability of using the excitation of Carbon to its first excited state as a target to select diffractive high energy interactions. In this talk, I will describe unpublished results from an experiment performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory where this technique was used to study properties of the A1 meson, a diffractively produced excited state of the pion. The results are in (three sigma) tension with the Particle Data Group’s estimate for the A1 mass.
