Thesis

A study of the interactions of elementary particles

Abstract:

This thesis describes an experiment to investigate the reaction

p + p → p + p + π0

at 1 GeV incident proton energy. Optical spark chambers and scintillation counters were used to detect the final state protons. The geometry of the apparatus was such as to select events in which one of the protons had kinetic energy (T) between 50 MeV and 200 MeV and in which the invariant mass (ω) of the other proton + pion lay in the range ~ 1150 MeV to ~ 1300 MeV. Aluminium absor...
