The measurements on the branching fractions and asymmetries of B→Kℓ+ℓ- and B→K*ℓ+ℓ- decays
(The University of Bergen, 2008-11-14)
Long-range interactions and dynamics of excited atoms
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-10)
A study of the dynamics of excited hydrogenic atoms, with emphasis on analytical and numerical calculations of the time-independent and the time-dependent Schrõdinger equation. A short description of Rydberg atoms and their ...
New experimental techniques to study the adhesion to various solid surfaces of hydrate-relevant droplets and particles
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-01)
Hydrate plugging is a substantial problem in the oil and gas industry, both economically, environmentally and safety wise. Plugging may occur as a result of agglomeration of hydrate particles, deposition of hydrates on ...
Dark matter and fundamental physics with the Cherenkov Telescope Array
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is a project for a next-generation observatory for very high energy (GeV–TeV) ground-based gamma-ray astronomy, currently in its design phase, and foreseen to be operative a few years ...
A study of the b-quark fragmentation function with the DELPHI detector at LEP I and an averaged distribution obtained at the Z Pole
The nature of b-quark jet hadronisation has been investigated using data taken at the Z peak by the DELPHI detector at LEP. Two complementarymethods are used to reconstruct the energy of weakly decaying b-hadrons, ...
A trigger readout system for the Forward Calorimeter(FoCal)
(The University of Bergen, 2012-11-20)
The University of Bergen, Norway is currently involved in the development and building of the Forward Calorimeter (FoCal) as an upgrade to the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) detector at CERN (European Organization ...
Measurement of electrons from beauty hadron decays in pp collisions at root √s=7 TeV
The production cross section of electrons from semileptonic decays of beauty hadrons was measured at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.8) in the transverse momentum range 1 < pT <8 GeV/c with the ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC in ...
L0/L1 trigger generation by the ALICE PHOS detector
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-14)
Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) is a phase that exists above a critical temperature and corresponding energy density according to the theory of Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD). The studies of the QGP help us to understand the ...
Multifrequency acoustic target strength of Northern krill
(The University of Bergen, 2009-03-30)
Although this thesis is a dissertation based on articles, an exhaustive overview on the main issues involved is also presented *. This is due to the necessity to summarize the numerous aspects of the problem, as well as ...
