On the critical energy required for homogeneous nucleation in bubble chambers employed in dark matter searches

Two equations for the calculation of the critical energy required for homogeneous nucleation in a superheated liquid, and the related critical radius of the nucleated vapour bubble, are obtained, the former by the direct application of the first law of thermodynamics, the latter by considering that the bubble formation implies the overcoming of a barrier of the free enthalpy...

The shallow structure of Solfatara Volcano, Italy, revealed by dense, wide-aperture seismic profiling

Two active-source, high-resolution seismic profiles were acquired in the Solfatara tuff cone in May and November 2014, with dense, wide-aperture arrays. Common Receiver Surface processing was crucial in improving signal-to-noise ratio and reflector continuity. These surveys provide, for the first time, high-resolution seismic images of the Solfatara crater, depicting a ~400 m...

Reduction of deuterium content in carbon targets for 12C + 12C reaction studies of astrophysical interest

Abstract.The 12C(12C,p)23Na and 12C(12C,\(\alpha\))20Ne fusion reactions are among the most important in stellar evolution since they determine the destiny of massive (\( M \simeq 8-10 M_{\odot}\)) stars. However, experimental low-energy investigations of such reactions are significantly hampered by ubiquitous natural hydrogen and deuterium contaminants in the carbon targets. The...

MOSCAB: a geyser-concept bubble chamber to be used in a dark matter search

The MOSCAB experiment (Materia OSCura A Bolle) uses the “geyser technique”, a variant of the superheated liquid technique of extreme simplicity. Operating principles of the new dark matter detector and technical solutions of the device are reported in detail. First results obtained in a series of test runs taken in laboratory demonstrate that we have successfully built and tested...

Improved parameters of seven Kepler giant companions characterized with SOPHIE and HARPS-N

Radial-velocity observations of Kepler candidates obtained with the SOPHIE and HARPS-N spectrographs have permitted unveiling the nature of the five giant planets Kepler-41b, Kepler-43b, Kepler-44b, Kepler-74b, and Kepler-75b, the massive companion Kepler-39b, and the brown dwarf KOI-205b. These companions were previously characterized with long-cadence (LC) Kepler data. Here we...

The prevalence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and methane production in patients with myelomeningocele and constipation

Study design:Prospective study.Objectives:The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), methane (CH4) production and orocecal transit time (OCTT) in children affected by myelomeningocele.Setting:This study was conducted at the Catholic University in Rome, Italy.Methods:Eighteen (6M/12F; 16.4±7.6 years) children affected...

Bioavailability of different methionine sources for broilers from 1 to 21 days old

This trial aimed to evaluate the bioavailability of DL-2-hydroxy-4-(methyl) butanoic acid (DL-HMBA) and a poly-herbal ingredient (PHI) in relation to DL-methionine (DLM) on broilers. A sample of 1100 broiler chickens of the Cobb 500 strain, both male and female, were fed either a basal diet without industrial methionine supplementation or a basal diet that was supplemented with...

SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates: a joint photometric, spectroscopic and dynamical analysis of the Kepler-117 system

We present the analysis of the multi-planetary system Kepler-117, which is part of our program of observations of Kepler planets. This system is composed of a ~ 30 MEarth planet in a ~ 19 days orbit and a ~ 2 MJ planet orbiting in ~ 51 days. Both the orbits have low eccentricity. The planets are not close to an exact low-order mean motion resonance, but exhibit significant...

Pre- and Posttherapy Assessment of Intestinal Soluble Mediators in IBD: Where We Stand and Future Perspectives

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition characterized by an abnormal immune response against food or bacterial antigens in genetically predisposed individuals. Several factors of innate and adaptive immune system take part in the inflammatory process, probably actively contributing in endoscopic and histological healing at molecular level. Although it...

Development, screening, and analysis of DNA aptamer libraries potentially useful for diagnosis and passive immunity of arboviruses

BackgroundNucleic acid aptamers have long demonstrated the capacity to bind viral envelope proteins and to inhibit the progression of pathogenic virus infections. Here we report on initial efforts to develop and screen DNA aptamers against recombinant envelope proteins or synthetic peptides and whole inactivated viruses from several virulent arboviruses including Chikungunya...

SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates - XVII. The physical properties of giant exoplanets within 400 days of period

While giant extrasolar planets have been studied for more than two decades now, there are still some open questions as to their dominant formation and migration processes, as well as to their atmospheric evolution in different stellar environments. In this paper, we study a sample of giant transiting exoplanets detected by the Kepler telescope with orbital periods up to 400 days...

Search for a heavy pseudoscalar boson decaying to a Z and a Higgs boson at \(\sqrt{s}=13\,\text {Te}\text {V} \)

A search is presented for a heavy pseudoscalar boson \(\text {A}\) decaying to a Z  boson and a Higgs boson with mass of 125\(\,\text {GeV}\). In the final state considered, the Higgs boson decays to a bottom quark and antiquark, and the Z  boson decays either into a pair of electrons, muons, or neutrinos. The analysis is performed using a data sample corresponding to an...

The impact of diabetes on prescription drug costs: the population-based Turin study

Aims/hypothesis The aim of our study was to compare prescription drug costs in diabetic and non-diabetic individuals in a large population-based Italian cohort covered by the National Health System. Methods We identified diabetic residents in Turin on 31 July 2003 through multiple independent data sources (diabetes registry, hospital discharges and prescriptions data sources...
