The [b.sub.i] depends on the meson-baryon interaction, which is considered to be on the order of the [rho]-meson exchange, [??]c/770 MeV. Because this interaction is of short-range nature, the energy dependence of [b.sub.i] becomes weak in the relevant invariant-mass region between 1332 ([SIGMA][pi] threshold) and 1432 ([K.sup.-] p threshold) MeV/[c.sup.2].

The measured spectra at 800 MeV show a few peaks due to the different thicknesses of the upstream target, which is due to the higher rates of energy deposition from slower moving ions exiting the thicker targets [39].
To partially address that and in view of Figure 3 we focus on the region of the (E, [theta]) plane approximately delimited by -2 [less than or equal to] [theta] [less than or equal to] 6 and 90 [less than or equal to] E [less than or equal to] 110 meV, in panels (b), (c), and (d) that correspond, respectively, to [E.sub.z] = 50, 170, and 300 meV/nm.
We are especially interested in the [beta] decaying [sup.16]N nuclei proceeding to the excited level in [sup.16]O emitting the 6.13 MeV y line.
Quasimonoenergetic source neutrons were generated by 43 MeV protons bombarding [sup.7]Li targets.
[V.sub.v], [V.sub.so] are the depth parameters of real potential in (MeV) taken from (RIPL-3).
"Coupled with the AD, this small ring will slow the antiprotons down even further, reducing their energy by a factor of 50, from 5.3 MeV [megaelectronvolts] to just 0.1 MeV.
The reduction in the satellite's size enables a shared launch by an International Launch Services (ILS) Proton vehicle in a stacked configuration with MEV-1, the first Mission Extension Vehicle (MEV) developed by Orbital, thereby reducing launch costs, including insurance.
MEV, since the advantage of lightweight body, has higher energy efficiency and lower requirement for battery capacity.
Valkovic describes experiments he has conducted over many years using 14 MeV neutrons, which are more difficult and time consuming than using charged particles, he says, but can offer insights into nucleus and other materials because of the absence of charge.
Although compact fusion generators have been around since the 1950s, their uses have been restricted to a limited number of applications, mainly due to their low yield, high neutron energies (2.5 MeV) and short product lifetimes.
They have high energy, typically in the MeV range, but due to their large mass, they are blocked by just a few inches of air, or a piece of paper.
