J. ; Mao, H.-S. ; et al Cryogenically Formed Discharge Waveguide   We describe the development and operation of a regenerative, cryogenically-formed discharge waveguide formed by freezing nitrous oxide gas onto the inner wall of a sapphire capillary. We demonstrate a technique for varying the channel diameter in situ and present guiding of low-power laser pulses through 6-cm long waveguides with channel diameters of 0.7, 0.8, and 1 mm.

Accelerating field structures in plasma can be generated by powerful laser pulses or charged particle beams.

A measurement of the total inclusive production cross section yields $\sigma_{\text{tot}}$(pp $\to$ WZ) = 50.6 $\pm$ 0.8 (stat) $\pm$ 1.5 (syst) $\pm$ 1.1 (lum) $\pm$ 0.5 (thy) pb.

The decay is assumed to proceed via a pair of beyond the standard model particles, or one such particle and a Z boson.
