Two photon physics at RHIC

Description: Because the two photon cross section is proportional to Z{sup 4}, heavy ion colliders offer an unmatched luminosity. However, because nuclei have finite sizes, the photon spectrum is gradually cut off by a nuclear form factor. For RHIC, this cutoff occurs at a few GeV; below this energy, RHIC will have the highest {gamma}{gamma} luminosity in the world when it turns on. In addition to the high rates, because Z{alpha} {approximately} 0.6, the nuclear environment provides a window to strong field QED and new phenomena like multiple pair production. To study {gamma}{gamma} physics, regions where the nuclei interact hadronically must be avoided; this leads to roughly a factor of two loss in usable luminosity. The rates expected by the Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR) collaboration will be given. Backgrounds will be discussed, along with several rejection techniques.

Polynomial solutions of the Schroedinger equation applied to photon cross sections in atoms

Description: Solutions of the Schrodinger equation with a realistic potential are carried out in detail. To check the methods, a few boundbound, bound-free, and free-free cross sections were calculated and values compared with existing calculations and experimental data. These comparisons, along with a listing of the computer code in its bound-free form, are included. (auth)

EPDL97: the evaluated photo data library `97 version

Description: The Evaluated Photon Data Library, 1997 version (EPLD97), is designed for use in photon transport calculations at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This library includes photon interaction data for all elements with atomic number between Z = 1 (hydrogne) and 100 (fermium), including: photoionization, photoexcitation, coherent and incoherent scattering, and pair and triplet porduction cross sections. For use in applications data is provided for all elements over the energy range 1 eV to 100 GeV. This report documents the sources and treatment of the data included inthis library. EPDL97 completely supersedes the earlier 1989 version of EPDL and it is highly recommended that useres only use the most recent version of this library.

Multiple scattering enhancement of x rays

Description: A Monte Carlo calculation is described for the determination of the contribution of multiple scattering to x rays scattered at 90 deg in various thicknesses of beryllium and carbon plates. The plates are inclined at an angle of 45 deg to the incident radiation. The photon energy range considered is 1 keV to 100 keV. Scatterer thicknesses range from 0.0046 g/cm/sup 2/ to 1.204 g/ cm/sup 2/. Two sets of results are given: one from a formulation neglecting the polarization, the other including polarization. Results are presented in the form of an enhancement factor defined as the ratio of the number of scattered photons escaping from the scatterer at 90 deg to the number escaping at 90 deg after scattering only once. Enhancement factors are given in both tabular and graphical form. (auth)

Photon Linear Collider Gamma-Gamma Summary

Description: High energy photon - photon collisions can be achieved by adding high average power short-pulse lasers to the Linear Collider, enabling an expanded physics program for the facility. The technology required to realize a photon linear collider continues to mature. Compton back-scattering technology is being developed around the world for low energy light source applications and high average power lasers are being developed for Inertial Confinement Fusion.
