My Second Journal Article!

My Ph.D. dissertation has now officially produced two publications! The first was the one I wrote about earlier (Phys. Rev. D 76, 052002).

The review process was slowed by my graduation, my moving to another experiment, and the other main author also moving to another institution. However, it was finally officially published yesterday as Phys. Rev. D 81, 051101(R). You can read the preprint online for free.
The subject of the paper is the same as my dissertation, which was an expansion on the work in the previous paper. We were searching for three rare decays of a particular subatomic particle called the charged B meson. We found some evidence of one decay, which is consistent with what other experiments have found. We did not find evidence of the others (also consistent with other experiments), but our search method had not previously been used for these two decays.

  1. Congratulations! My dissertation didn't merit much in the way of publication – a few minor conference proceedings.

    I found your website because I wanted to have it for myself. I guess you beat me to it by several years. 🙂 Anyway, I'm 36, have a Ph.D. in physics and agree with most of what I have read so far on your blog. Good stuff.

    i am a voluntary potographer, maybe you'd like to publish some of my pics? i think it would be nice for your page 🙂
    absolutely admire your blog! send me a e-mail please in case you want to see my photgraphs
