Up: Proposal for an experiment
Previous: List of Figures
- The scattering lengths (in units
- Different processes influencing the cascade together with their
dependence on kinetic energy of the
atom and the target pressure.
- Calculated absolute yields (%) of muonic and pionic hydrogen -transition.
- Physical properties of the Bragg crystals available for the experiment.
- Pionic and muonic hydrogen X-rays are listed together with the
Bragg angles of relevant single crystals.
- The number of expected X-ray events/h is given for different transitions.
The two pressures indicate the two typical pressure regions
bar and bar. A stop rate reduction by a factor
of ten is assumed for muons. The integrated reflectivity of the Si crystal used
for Figure 6 was 73
. The error in the quoted
number of events is estimated to be on the level of 20%.
- Energies and line widths (FWHM) are given both for one-electron
MCDF code (fully relativistic, with QED corrections and finite nuclear size)
[75,76,77,78] and fluorescence transitions 
for different Z. The mass M is in nuclear mass units. The Gaussian width
(FWHM) caused by a Maxwellian velocity distribution of the ECR plasma is calculated
for an ion temperature of per charge. The widths
for the fluorescence lines are from ref .
- Transition energies and widths for He-like transitions in the energy
region covered by the crystal spectrometer.
- Possible in situ pionic calibration lines. Only circular transitions
are considered. No higher energy lines are listed as they would require higher
order Bragg reflection.
- Mean Bragg angle, angle and position difference of the pionic and
muonic hydrogen lines together with the dispersion of the two crystals.
- The angle difference and the position difference for two calibration
lines is given together with the dispersion of the two crystals at the mean
- Fit results as a function of intensity. A
error is given.
- List of responsabilities for the measurement of pionic hydrogen.
The entries below the second row are in units of man years and are valid for
the years 2000-2002. As nearly all members of the collaboration have other duties
as well the man years do not add up to the number of people. ThCasc stands for
a group consisting of physicists from the universities of Aarhus and Zürich
as well as from PSI and ETH Zürich dealing mainly with the theoretical problems
in the description of the cascade.
- List of the responsabilities for the pre-measurement with the
ECR source. The entries below the second row are in units of manyears.
- List of main new investments from the collaborating institutes
- Money requested from PSI. The first four items are investments
before the experiment with the pion beam starts. The corresponding money must
be spent in the year 1999.
