In the present publication, we report the results of a study on the effect of particle sizes on the overall efficiency of neutron reflectors made of DNDs [...] Restricted: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2021-10-0515:42 [PUBDB-2021-03975] Journal Article Acharya, A. ; Adhikary, H. ; Aduszkiewicz, A. ; et al Erratum to: Measurements of $\pi ^-$ production in $^7\hbox{Be}+{}^9\hbox{Be}$ collisions at beam momenta from 19A to 150 $A\,\text{ Ge } \text{V}/c$ in the NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS [arXiv:2010.01864] The European physical journal / C 81(2), 144 (1-3) (2021) [10.1140/epjc/s10052-021-08926-y]   The NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) studies the onset of deconfinement in hadron matter by a scan of particle production in collisions of nuclei with various sizes at a set of energies covering the SPS energy range. This paper presents results on inclusive double-differential spectra, transverse momentum and rapidity distributions and mean multiplicities of $\pi ^\pm$, $K^\pm$, p and $\bar{p}$ produced in the 20% most central$^7$Be+$^9$Be collisions at beam momenta of 19A, 30A, 40A, 75A and 150A ${\mathrm{Ge} \mathrm{V}}\!/\!c$.

The physics program of the Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment is devoted to the production and investigation of dense nuclear matter, with a focus on the high-density equation-of-state (EOS), and signatures for new phases of dense QCD matter.

The scheme relies on relativistic plasma mirrors curved by radiation pressure to boost the intensity of petawatt-class laser pulses by Doppler effect and focus them to extreme field intensities.

A promising—yet challenging—approach to achieve such extreme fields consists in reflecting a high-power femtosecond laser pulse off a curved relativistic mirror.
