    A precision LCR meter along with a liquid dielectric cell have been used to measure the capacitance and resistance of the binary mixtures of methyl ethers with water at 298.15 K in the frequency range of 20 Hz to 2 MHz. The measured values are used to compute the complex dielectric permittivity Δ*(ω). The parameters like complex electrical modulus M*(ω), complex electrical conductivity σ*(ω) and loss tangent (tan ÎŽ) are obtained from the complex dielectric permittivity values of the samples. The values of excess dielectric permittivity of the samples are calculated using the respective static dielectric permittivity values. The refractive indices of all the samples were measured using Abbe’s refractometer at 298.15 K. All these parameters are used to gain insight into the concentration dependent variation in dielectric and electrical properties of the binary mixtures. A dominance of electrode polarization effect in the lower frequency region is observed for all the samples studied here

    Data taken with the ALEPH detector at LEP1 have been used to search for gamma gamma production of the glueball candidates f0(1500) and fJ(1710) via their decay to pi+pi-. No signal is observed and upper limits to the product of gamma gamma width and pi+pi- branching ratio of the f0(1500) and the fJ(1710) have been measured to be Gamma_(gamma gamma -> f0(1500)). BR(f0(1500)->pi+pi-) < 0.31 keV and Gamma_(gamma gamma -> fJ(1710)). BR(fJ(1710)->pi+pi-) < 0.55 keV at 95% confidence level.Comment: 10 pages, 3 figure

    Measurement of the t t-bar production cross section in the dilepton channel in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV

    The t t-bar production cross section (sigma[t t-bar]) is measured in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV in data collected by the CMS experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 inverse femtobarns. The measurement is performed in events with two leptons (electrons or muons) in the final state, at least two jets identified as jets originating from b quarks, and the presence of an imbalance in transverse momentum. The measured value of sigma[t t-bar] for a top-quark mass of 172.5 GeV is 161.9 +/- 2.5 (stat.) +5.1/-5.0 (syst.) +/- 3.6(lumi.) pb, consistent with the prediction of the standard model.Comment: Replaced with published version.
