End-group components for superconducting accelerator cavity used in acceleration of charged particles are manufactured by subjecting pure niobium sheet materials to press forming composed mainly of flat-bottomed cylindrical drawing, preferably by simultaneously conducting control of slide velocity and / or its motion and control of tool die temperature and / or its distribution / gradient in the above press forming, further preferably by dynamically controlling blank holding force in accordance with the variation of flange area, flange thickness and deformed characteristics of niobium sheet materials during the press forming, more preferably by preparing an anisotropically shaped blank instead of a circular blank by use of servo press forming machine, servo-die cushion temperature control equipment, water-soluble solid coating type lubricant, and a tooling die.

A new powder auto-indexing method for the CONOGRAPH software [Oishi-Tomiyasu (2013). Acta Cryst. A69, 603-610] can carry out exhaustive powder auto-indexing in a short time, even if the q values of many peaks are used, with sufficient consideration given to their observational errors. This article explains that the use of many q values is essential to make powder auto-indexing robust against dominant zones and missing or false peaks in the input. Results from CONOGRAPH for 25 real diffraction patterns, including difficult cases, are presented. Owing to a sorting criterion for zones defined in the previous article, the computation times were reduced by a factor of between 18 and 250, and exhaustive powder auto-indexing was completed in 5 min at most. © 2014.

We reanalyze constraints on the mass spectrum of the chiral fourth generation fermions and the Higgs bosons for the standard model (SM4) and the two Higgs doublet model. We find that the Higgs mass in the SM4 should be larger than roughly the fourth generation up-type quark mass, while the light CP even Higgs mass in the two Higgs doublet model can be smaller. Various mass spectra of the fourth generation fermions and the Higgs bosons are allowed. The phenomenology of the fourth generation models is still rich. © 2010 The American Physical Society.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a method and an apparatus for measuring a scattering intensity distribution capable of measuring a scattering intensity distribution in a reciprocal space in a short time. The method or apparatus for measuring a scattering intensity distribution causes X-rays emitted from an X-ray source (101) to be reflected by an X-ray optical element (102) so as to converge in the vicinity of a surface of a sample (SA), causes monochromatic X-rays condensed after passing through a plurality of optical paths to be incident on the sample at glancing angles () that differ depending on the respective optical paths at a time in a state in which there is a correlation between an angle formed by each optical path of the monochromatic X-rays and a reference plane, and an angle formed by each optical path and a plane including the normal of the reference plane and an optical path located in the center of the respective optical paths, detects scattering intensities of the monochromatic X-rays scattered by the sample using a two-dimensional detector (103) and calculates a scattering intensity distribution in the reciprocal space based on the scattering intensity distribution detected by the two-dimensional detector and the correlation.
