High-energy nuclear optics of polarized particles.


High-energy nuclear optics of polarized particles.

Baryshevsky, Vladimir G.

World Scientific


620 pages




Baryshevsky (nuclear problems, Belorussian State U.) describes how phenomena long associated with light are now being observed in high-energy particles as well. He covers the nuclear optics of polarized matter, nuclear pseudomagnetism, "optical" spin rotation and the birefringence effect of high-energy particles, and channeling and high-energy nuclear optics in crystals. Among his topics are the diffraction of particles in polarized crystals, positronium and muonium spin rotation and oscillations, the phenomenon of time-reversal violating magnetic field generation by a static electric field and electric field generation by a static magnetic field, spin rotation of particles moving in bent crystals and measuring the magnetic moment of short-lived particles and nuclei, and synchrotron-type radiation processes in crystals and polarization phenomena accompanying them.
