The two arrays of the Very High Energy gamma-ray observatory Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will include four Large Size Telescopes (LSTs) each with a 23 m diameter dish and 28 m focal distance. These telescopes will enable CTA to achieve a low-energy threshold of 20 GeV, which is critical for important studies in astrophysics, astroparticle physics and cosmology. This work presents the key specifications and performance of the current LST design in the light of the CTA scientific objectives.
During 1993 and 1995 LEP was run at 3 energies near the Z(0) peak in order to give improved measurements of the mass and width of the resonance. During 1994, LEP operated only at the Z(0) peak. In total DELPHI accumulated data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 116 pb(-1). Analyses of the hadronic cross-sections and of the cross-sections and forward-backward asymmetries in the leptonic channels used the most precise evaluations of the LEP energies. In the dimuon channel, events with a photon radiated horn the initial state have been used to probe the cross-sections and asymmetries down to PETRA energies. Model independent fits to all DELPHI lineshape and asymmetry data horn 1990 to 1995 have been carried out giving values of the resonance parameters: M-Z = 91.1863 +/- 0.0028 GeV Gamma(Z) = 2.4876 +/- 0.0041 GeV ...
Searches for neutral Higgs bosons in the Standard Model and the MSSM have been performed using data collected by the DELPHI experiment at a centre-of-mass energy of 188.7 GeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 158 pb(-1). These analyses are used, in combination with our results from lower energies, to set new 95% confidence level lower mass bounds on the Standard Model Higgs boson (94.6 GeV/c(2)) and on the lightest neutral scalar (82.6 GeV/c(2)) and neutral pseudoscalar (84.1 GeV/c(2)) Higgs bosons in a representative scan of the MSSM parameters. The results are also interpreted in the framework of a general two-Higgs doublet model.
Lifetime and oscillations of B-s(0) mesons have been studied in events with a large transverse momentum lepton and a D-s of opposite electric charge in the same hemisphere, selected from about 3.6 million hadronic Z(0) decays accumulated by DELPHI between 1992 and 1995. The B-s(0) lifetime and the fractional width difference between the two physical B-s(0) states have been found to be: tau(Bs0) = (1.42(-0.13)(+0.14)(stat.) +/- 0.03(syst)) ps Delta Gamma(Bs0) /Gamma(Bs0) lt 0.46 at the 95% C.L. In the latter result it has been assumed that tau(Bs0) = tau(Bd0). Using the same sample, a limit on the mass difference between the physical B-s(0) states has been set: Delta m(Bs0) gt 7.4 ps(-1) at the 95% C.L. with a corresponding sensitivity equal to 8.1 ps(-1).
The DELPHI experiment at the LEP $ {\, \mathrm e}^+ {\mathrm e}^- $ collider collected almost 700 pb-1 at centre-of-mass energies above the Z0 mass pole and up to 208 GeV. Those data were used to search for SUSY in the Anomaly Mediated SUSY Breaking (AMSB) scenario with a flavour independent common sfermion mass parameter. The searches covered several possible signatures experimentally accessible at LEP, with either the neutralino, the sneutrino or the stau being the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle (LSP). They included: the search for nearly mass-degenerate chargino and neutralino, which is a typical feature of AMSB; the search for Standard-Model-like or invisibly decaying Higgs boson; the search for stable staus; the search for cascade decays of SUSY particles resulting in the LSP and a low multiplicity final state containing neutrin...
