“Rural Neighborhoods and Communities”; and “Rural Visiting and Exchanging Work and Products” published in "Midwest History: An Interpretive Encyclopedia," Indiana University Press, 2006. Go to top of page

Physics and Astronomy
Scott Whitfield and co-authors recently had their article titled “Resonance induced deviations of beta from 2.0 for rare gas s-subshell photoionization” published in the November issue of the Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Vol. 39, L335-L343, 2006. The paper investigates small effects in the photoionization process of krypton and xenon atoms which arise from relativistic interactions. The photoionization process is one in which atoms absorbing light of a sufficient energy can expel electrons. Investigation of the ejected electrons can then reveal important information about the basic interaction of light and matter. The experimental measurements detailed in this paper are found to be in qualitative agreement with state-of-the-art calculations, indicating that while theory can give a qualitative explanation of the observations, it is still lacking in giving a completely quantitative account of the experimental data.
