The quasi-official IonoCopter web page
This is the IonoCopter web page, full of fun and useful information
about the IonoCopter!
(OK, so not everyone would consider it "fun.")
This is an instrument operating at a particle physics experiment at
the Japanese High Energy Physics Laboratory (KEK) in Tsukuba City,
Japan. The main mechanical design was done
by physicists from The Univerity at StonyBrook
and an engineer from Creative Instrumentation in Long Island, NY, USA,
and parts were built at StonyBrook, Brookhaven National Lab, and KEK.
See some nifty pics here.
--but be careful, that page may take a bit of time to load.
Notice the end of that page has links to newly copied
A brief review for outsiders to our experiment, including possibly
non-physicists, is written here.
Some details about the mechanical parts are given in
this document which is not very
technical from a physics point of view, but are a bit
more than a glance at the pictures would give.
Collaborators only (password protected stuff):
Note that some of the below documents as html also have PostScript versions
available. To find these, check the link to the directory of the html,
then substitute ".ps" for the trailing slash in that name.
View the run list summary here!
Note of course that that is only a summary, not a transcript of
the whole log book. The point is to give some overview of the
run sets and what general information is there.
The format of the most recent data
is described in this document with a pointer to the files themselves.
Note that this is subject to change since we are still just starting
our analysis and just finished our calibration.
Here is a shortcut to the data ntuples
themselves for those who already know about the format.
More gory details about our systems are
here. These include,
but will not be limited to, details of our survey and how the gas
system is set up. It is brand new, so it is lacking a lot at present.
General figures (some shown in weekly
experimental meetings) are
in this directory.
Some relevant(?) links:
- The experiment of which this project is a part is called "K2K."
It is a rather large group with many participating institutions.
Here are some places to get general information on the whole project.
SUNY StonyBrook K2K web page.
There are a lot of others, but especially (see also):
the official page at KEK
- Some of the many SuperKamiokande web pages:
- Other related physics links:
- The MINOS
experiment, which will be similar to ours when it comes on-line
- The "
Neutrino oscillation industry" homepage, which has a much nicer
list of links on this subject.
Long Baseline News (Maury Goodman) This is a newsletter for much of
what goes on in neutrino physics.
Particle Data Group Welcome Page (which has links to:)
The PDG seems to be updating their page a lot and now has links to a lot
things at various levels of sophistocation, so even a non-physicist
*might* find something interesting to look at.
