nucleon spectra for the non–mesonic decay of 5 ΛHe and 12 Λ C hypernuclei was presented in [20,21].A one–meson–exchange (OME) potential was used forthe ΛN→ nNtransition in a finite nucleus framework. The model adopted for the two–nucleon induced decay channel is described in . The high intensity pion beams by the slow beam extraction will be used. Our subjects are a copious production of the neutron-rich hypernuclei by the double-charge exchange (DCX) reactions (E10) and a detail study on the non-mesonic weak decay in the A=4 hypernuclei (E22).

The ground state of heliumLambda, for example, must resemble helium-4 more than it does helium-5 or lithium-5 and must be stable, apart from the eventual weak decay of the Lambda. Sigma hypernuclei have been sought, as have doubly-strange nuclei containing Cascade baryons. Hypernuclei can be made by a nucleus capturing a Lambda or K meson.   The weak decay of hyperons may occur, in principle, with isospin change ΔI = 1/2 or 3/2. However, the values of the experimental decay branching ratios imply a dominance of a factor 20 of ΔI = 1/2 over ΔI = 3/2. Nevertheless, experimental analysis of some non-mesonic decay channels seems to suggest a strong violation of this rule.

Charge Symmetry Breaking in Light Hypernuclei Achenbach P. (Mainz University, Germany) A1 Collaboration At the Mainz Microtron MAMI the high-resolution spectroscopy of decay-pions in strangeness electro-production is used to extract the Λ hyperon ground state bind-ing energy in 4 Λ H [1]. This binding energy is used together with the 4 Λ He. ΛHe hypernuclei, a few 5 ΛHe → d+t decay events have also been observed. The branching ratio for this decay channel has been measured for the first time: ( ±) ×10−3.

For the purpose of the experimental data interpretation, a new theoretical model for the η-mesic helium was developed, according to which the mesic nucleus decays without η meson by: 2. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Theoretical descriptions of the non–mesonic weak decay of Λ–hypernuclei are unable to reproduce the experimental values of the ratio Γn/Γp ≡ Γ(Λn → nn)/Γ(Λp → np).

In this contribution we discuss a new approach to this problem. We have incorporated a one–meson–exchange model for the ΛN → nN. We review the current status of studies of weak decays of Λ-hypernuclei.

Both experimental and theoretical aspects are reviewed, with emphasis on the weak non-mesonic decays. Experimental results obtained during the last thirty years are described and discussed in detail. We present an evaluation of the non-mesonic decay widths for Λ-hypernuclei (ΛN→ NN, ΛNN→ NNN) within the framework of the polarization propagator method.

The full Λ self-energy is evaluated microscopically in nuclear matter by using the functional approach, which supplies a theoretically well grounded approximation scheme for the classification of the relevant diagrams, according to.

and branching ratios of mesonic as well as nonmesonic decay channels of 12 Λ C, 11 Λ B and the different helium hypernuclei [7,8]. The group at KEK used the (π+,K+) production reaction to not only measure total and partial decay rates [9], but also to use the induced polarization in Notably, the two–body component of the non–mesonic decay rates has not been measured yet, due to the too low counting rates expected for a coincidence experiment.

For the asymmetric non–mesonic decay of polarized hypernuclei the situation is even more puzzling. Indeed, strong inconsistencies appear already among data. scattering. The mesonic decay of light hypernuclei has provided evidence of the strong repulsion of the ΛNinteraction at short distances, a property that follows naturally from available quark models of the strong YNinteraction.

The non-mesonic decay mode (ΛN → NN) has received much attention and 3. We measured the lifetime and the mesonic and non-mesonic decay rates of the 4He-Lambda hypernucleus.

The hypernuclei were created using a MeV/c momentum K. Making use of the decay parameters established for the 4ΛHe hypernucleus from observations in a helium bubble chamber, a value of Q−, the ratio of non-mesonic to π− mesonic decays, for λ5He.

Abstract. The proton decay asymmetry, α p NM, of the polarized Λ-hypernuclei, Λ 5 He, Λ 12 C and Λ 11 B, has been investigated to understand the reaction mechanism of the non-mesonic weak-decay process. These Λ-hypernuclei were produced in the highest statistics ever via the (π +, K +) reaction at GeV/c by using the SKS spectrometer at KEK 12 GeV PS.

1 Hyperons and hypernuclei Introduction Hyperons (, Ω) have lifetimes of the order of 10 −10 sec (apart from the 0, which decays into γ).They decay weakly, with a mean free path ˇ c˝= O(10 cm).

Ahypernucleus is a boundsystem of neutrons, protonsand oneormore hyperons. The nonmesonic weak decay spectra of light hypernuclei have been evaluated in a systematic way. As theoretical framework we adopt the independent particle shell.

By measuring the relative decay widths ({Gamma}{sub n}/{Gamma}{sub p}) in the full set of s-shell hypernuclei, a sensitive test of the {Delta}I = 1/2 rule, and the determination of its applicability to non-mesonic decays can be made. In addition, information about the spin-isospin dependence of the weak decay process can be extracted.

We have studied the mesonic and non-mesonic decay width of Λ-hypernuclei by performing calculations in nuclear matter and using the local-density prescription to apply the results to finite nuclei. We review recent developments concerning the weak decay of Lambda hypernuclei.

It is shown that the final-state resonance interaction in the p-/sup 4/He system essentially determines the angular dependence of the proton. In Sect. 2 I discuss the possible modes for a hyperon to decay, the mesonic channel (Λ → πN) and the non-mesonic channel (Λ N ⇒ N N), which constitutes the dominant mode when the decay.

The study of proton spectra from non-mesonic weak decay for p-shell hypernuclei, both single and in coincidence with a neutron, has triggered the investigation of the two-nucleon induced Lambda NN.

The isotopic composition refers to that in air. Helium-2 (diproton) Helium-2 or 2 He is an extremely unstable isotope of helium. Its nucleus, a diproton, consists of two protons with no ing to theoretical calculations, it would have been much more stable (although still undergoing β + decay to deuterium) if the strong force had been 2% greater.

A dedicated and systematic experimental study made possible the achievement of some new results about the non-mesonic weak decay of hypernuclei.

Among others, the first determination of the one-proton induced non-mesonic weak decay width for several p -shell Λ-hypernuclei contributed in defining a coherent picture of the complete set of decay.

Hypernuclei were discovered in by M. Danysz and J. Pniewski in photographic emulsions that went with high altitude balloon flights. The weak decay of a Λ nucleon accounted for the abundant energy release in a secondary star, which is the signature of what was called a hyperfragment.

Many surprises were offered by hypernuclei through a large variety of experiments over a long period. Abstract. This paper summarizes the available information on S-shell hypernuclei, particularly with respect to their weak decays.

It is also pointed out that a measurement of the branching ratios in the non-mesonic weak decay of Λ 4 H is crucial in order to test the ΔI=1/2 rule in the strangeness changing non-leptonic weak decay process.
