1 Evidence for Quarks Quark Composition of Hadrons [Secs Dunlap]

2 By 1964 Particle classification became: Gauge Bosons FERMION BOSON gigi Not substantiated until 70s and 80s LeptonsBaryons Mesons HADRONS (S+E-W)LEPTONS (E-W)

3 The 1950s particle Explosion Young man, if I could remember the names of all these particles, I would have been a botanist Enrico Fermi In th 1950s the race was on to build larger and larger accelerators. Many physicists such as Fermi were alarmed to say the least. By the end of the 50s we had the: Then in 1964 the cascades were discovered The situation was getting out of hand – some solution had to be found

4 The quark or “straton” model or hadrons Murray Gell-Mann and George Zweig tentatively put forth the idea of quarks. They suggested that mesons and baryons are composites of three quarks or antiquarks, called up, down, or strange (u, d, s) with spin 1/2 and fractional electric charge. u d s charges 2/3, -1/3, -1/3 Since the charges had never been observed, the introduction of quarks was treated more as a mathematical explanation. Later theoretical and experimental developments allow us to now regard the quarks as real physical objects, even though they cannot be isolated. Three Quarks for Muster Mark! James Joyce Finnegans Wake

5 Evidence for quark structure [1] Neutral pi meson production: [2] Neutron and proton magnetic moments are not = the nuclear magneton as predicted by the Dirac equation for point fermions. Such reactions are difficult to explain if it is assumed that the proton is like the electron a fundamental structureless particle.

6 Other evidences for quark structure Deep Inelastic Scattering of electrons The proton has excited states

7 Particle classification with 3 quarks Gauge Bosons FERMION BOSON Quarks gigi Not substantiated until 70s and 80s LeptonsBaryons Mesons HADRONS (S+E-W)LEPTONS (E-W)

8 Mathematics – SU(2) symmetry special unitary group Triplet Singlet Di-Nucleon Deuteron Bound

9 mathematics – SU(3) symmetry plet octet Decuplet singlet The strange quark is seen as being the identical particle to the up and down quark – just in a different quantum state. Rotations in quark space do not change the strong interaction

10 SU3 found in experiment PROTON FAMILY = OCTET J π = 1/2+ HEAVY PROTON FAMILY = dicuplet J π =3/2+

11 PROTON OCTET FAMILYHEAVY PROTON – DECUPLET FAMILY In reality the strange quark “s” has a heavier intrinsic mass

12 Discovery of the Omega Minus The bubble chamber photograph shown was taken in 1964 – It shows the production of the first observed Omega Minus

15 The Pi- Meson Family (of nine)

16 The energies of the Pi-meson family The higher mass of the K- mesons and Eta meson results from the larger mass of the strange quark
