Departamento de Física Teórica I, Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas, Universidad Complutense, 28040, Madrid
R. F. Alvarez-Estrada is Professor of Theoretical Physics since 1982 in Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas, Universidad Complutense, Madrid, and Emeritus Professor in it since 2013. Since 1984, and jointly with Prof. M. L. Calvo, he has done research on slow neutron confined propagation and short scale focalization (Mr. I. Molina contributing very actively to it, recently). The research interest of R. F. A.-E. have covered successively aspects of Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics and Field Theory, Scattering, Statistical Mechanics and applications to macromolecules. R. F. A.-E. has been visiting scientist at Faculté des Sciences d'Orsay, Paris, CERN and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.
Abstract
INTRODUCTION. Hollow neutron guides (with transverse dimension the order of cms.) are routinely used to conduct slow (cold, thermal, epithermal) neutron beams along several tens of m. At later stages, actual guides could be... [ view full abstract ]
