  • In this report the authors have examined the potential of e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} colliders to achieve very high luminosity. Existing design studies of B-factories and {phi}-factories provided representative parameters that formed the starting point for their discussions. After examining these parameters, they considered what their limitations were and assessed what luminosity enhancement was possible by pushing the limits further than was deemed suitable for ail initial machine proposal. Several alternative approaches to high luminosity were also discussed. Given that they are attempting to enhance the collider luminosity by several orders of magnitude over today`s machines, there are some issues thatmore » will require R and D to confirm parameter choices and optimize designs. They have identified several areas where R and D activities are deemed appropriate and outlined the requisite tasks. Besides the technology R and D, they wish to emphasize that new approaches to high-luminosity colliders will require a more generalized R and D effort in accelerator physics. To ensure a viable future for high-energy physics accelerators, it is essential that such R and D be properly supported.« less
  • In this paper, we will first indicate the key issues in designing a B-factory and a {phi}-factory, and illustrate the approaches that are being followed to address them. In general, reaching the B-factory parameter regime offers the most challenges, so we will emphasize it here. Then we will consider an extrapolation of our present understanding of collider performance and assess the maximum luminosity that could be anticipated. To reach extremely high luminosity, it may be necessary to consider possibilities beyond the scope of standard'' approaches to collider design; a few illustrative examples are outlined. For both the present designs andmore » the extrapolated parameters, R D activities in a few key areas are required; these areas are discussed in this paper also.« less
  • High luminosity electron-positron colliders operating at the mass of the {phi} meson (1.02 GeV) can produce copious K{bar K}{degree} pairs from a single quantum state. Temporal correlations in the decays of the K's provide a measure of the direct CP violating amplitude and also allow a high precision of CPT invariance. A low energy collider with high luminosity can serve as a beam physics testbed to evaluate novel approaches to collider design that may be necessary for B factories to attain luminosities {ge} 10{sup 34} cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1}. 12 refs., 2 tabs.
  • We suggest that white dwarf (WD) pulsars can compete with neutron star (NS) pulsars for producing the excesses of cosmic ray electrons and positrons (e{sup {+-}}) observed by the PAMELA, ATIC/PPB-BETS, Fermi, and H.E.S.S. experiments. A merger of two WDs leads to a rapidly spinning WD with a rotational energy ({approx}10{sup 50} erg) comparable to the NS case. The birth rate ({approx}10{sup -2}-10{sup -3}/yr/galaxy) is also similar, providing the right energy budget for the cosmic ray e{sup {+-}}. Applying the NS theory, we suggest that the WD pulsars can in principle produce e{sup {+-}} up to {approx}10 TeV. In contrastmore » to the NS model, the adiabatic and radiative energy losses of e{sup {+-}} are negligible since their injection continues after the expansion of the pulsar wind nebula, and hence it is enough that a fraction {approx}1% of WDs are magnetized ({approx}10{sup 7}-10{sup 9} G) as observed. The long activity also increases the number of nearby sources ({approx}100), which reduces the Poisson fluctuation in the flux. The WD pulsars could dominate the quickly cooling e{sup {+-}} above TeV energy as a second spectral bump or even surpass the NS pulsars in the observing energy range {approx}10 GeV-1 TeV, providing a background for the dark matter signals and a nice target for the future AMS-02, CALET, and CTA experiment.« less
  • We discuss positron annihilation (2D-ACAR) measurements in the C- projection on an untwinned metallic single crystal of YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7-x} as a function of temperature, for five temperatures ranging from 30K to 300K. The measured 2D-ACAR intensities are interpreted in terms of the electron-positron momentum density obtained within the KKR-band theory framework. The temperature dependence of the 2D-ACAR spectra is used to extract a background corrected'' experimental spectrum which is in remarkable accord with the corresponding band theory predictions, and displays in particular clear signatures of the electron ridge Fermi surface.
