New AMS results to be presented at ICRC 2013 at Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

July 6th, 2013

  We are all looking forward  for  the planned release of several new results from the AMS Collaboration at the  International Cosmic Ray Conference 2013 in Brasil. On July 8th, during a special ICRC  session dedicated to   AMS,  the  Collaboration will present new results on the precision measurement of:  proton, helium, electron, positrons and Boron/Carbon as well as the positron to electron ratio. The data correspond to 24 month of data taking, about 31 billions of trigger recorded by the

FIRST RESULT FROM THE ALPHA MAGNETIC SPECTROMETER EXPERIMENT

April 3rd, 2013

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) Collaboration announces the publication of its first physics result in Physical Review Letters. The AMS Experiment is the most powerful and sensitive particle physics spectrometer ever deployed in space. As seen in Figure 1, AMS is located on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS) and, since its installation on May 19, 2011 until the present, it has measured over 30 billion cosmic rays at energies up to trillions of electron volts. Its permanent

First Results of the AMS-02 experiment to be presented on April 3rd at CERN

March 28th, 2013

Nearly two years after the launch of STS134, after collecting and analyzing more than 25 billions of events, the AMS Collaboration will release the first physics results from  the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the ISS. Prof. Samuel Ting will talk at CERN Main Auditorium (Bldg. 500-1-001) on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013 at 17:00. It will be possible to follow this event in real time using the CERN webcast service.

AMS HADRONIC TOMOGRAPHY

September 29th, 2012

Operating in the International Space Station since May 2011, AMS is performing very accurate measurements of cosmic ray (e.g. Proton and Helium nuclei) with unprecedent sensitivity. This picture represents a “tomographic” reconstruction of the AMS top-of-instrument material obtained using the Proton-to-Helium flux ratio. Tiny changes of the interaction probabilities of these nuclei with different materials are used to trace the material inhomogenities. Detector elements such as screws, electronics boards, and mechanical interfaces are clearly recognizable.
