    Study of the K+K- Interaction at COSY-11

    In this article we present studies of the near threshold pp-->ppK+K- reaction in view of the K+K- final state interaction. The investigations include analysis of both the low-energy K+K- invariant mass distributions measured by COSY-11 collaboration at excess energies of Q = 10 MeV and Q = 28 MeV and the near threshold excitation function for the pp-->ppK+K- reaction. As a result of these studies we have estimated the K+K- scattering length more precise compared to the previous analysis based only on the analysis of the differential cross sections.Comment: Proceedings from the MESON2010 conference ,3 pages, 3 figure

    NMR measurements on obliquely evaporated Co-Cr films

    The distribution of the hyperfine fields or the resonance frequencies in metals and alloys obtained by NMR measurements have been known for a long time. Recently, new experimental data have been published about thin films for studying their chemical inhomogeneities. An example is the study on sputtered and evaporated Co-Cr layers. In this paper we report on the compositional distribution of co-evaporated Co-Cr films by using the Co spin-echo NMR technique. For comparison single source evaporated samples of Co-Cr and pure Co as well as two alloyed ribbons (┬┐bulk┬┐ samples) have also been measured. Based on the NMR results the local Cr concentration of the ferromagnetic and less ferromagnetic regions are determined. In comparison the data from the co-evaporated films, even at low substrate temperature, have clearly shown the presence of a process-induced compositional separation. This is in qualitative agreement with the magnetic properties of the samples

    Absence of contagious yawning in children with autism spectrum disorder

    This study is the first to report the disturbance of contagious yawning in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Twenty-four children with ASD as well as 25 age-matched typically developing (TD) children observed video clips of either yawning or control mouth movements. Yawning video clips elicited more yawns in TD children than in children with ASD, but the frequency of yawns did not differ between groups when they observed control video clips. Moreover, TD children yawned more during or after the yawn video clips than the control video clips, but the type of video clips did not affect the amount of yawning in children with ASD. Current results suggest that contagious yawning is impaired in ASD, which may relate to their impairment in empathy. It supports the claim that contagious yawning is based on the capacity for empathy
