Anna Micherdzinska made a poster for the site visit reception on the d+d elastic scattering analysis.
Anna also gave a talk at the fall DNP meeting.

Here are links to some of the new coverage associated with the Philadelphia APS meeting.
There are also some pictures from the CSB experiment that might be used to illustrate articles about CSB.
NOTE: Chuck Horowitz has made available his talk for the Gordon Conference (July 14-18, 2003).
Experiment CE-82 is a search for the isospin-forbidden d+d -> 4He+p0 reaction. A measurement of its cross section is connected in Chiral Perturbation Theory with the difference in the masses of the up and down quarks. This PAC-approved experiment ran during the summer of 2002. The links below will connect you to some of the main documents associated with this experiment.
The documents available on this page are in PDF or HTML format.
On February 4, 2000, a technical review of this experiment was conducted at IUCF. This review was based on the Conceptual Design Report (this version unfortunately without figures) prepared in advance by the group. In part, this was based on two working documents, a summary of the data on deuteron breakup estimating how much of this rate would appear in the CSB detectors, and an estimate of the total cross section for the reaction at 228.5 MeV. The final comments of the technical review panel are also available.
In June, 2000, the group presented their PAC proposal to the IUCF Program Advisory Committee. It was approved with an "A" priority in a recommendation to the director of IUCF.
In August, 2001, there was a workshop at the Institute for Nuclear Theory at the University of Washington in Seattle. The workshop web page is now the site for any developments on the theoretical task of calculating this isospin-forbidden reaction.
