large ion

large ion

[′lärj ′ī‚än]
(meteorology)
An ion created by a small ion attaching to an Aitken nucleus; it is characterized by relatively large mass and low mobility. Also known as heavy ion; Langevin ion; slow ion.

However, Scaling this type of gate up to long ion chains ( 20 ions) is not feasible: Large ion numbers lead to crowding of the motional mode spectrum of the chain, Eventually preventing addressing of specific modes.
A number of Indian universities and institutes are also a part of ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), one of the largest experiments in the world devoted to the research in the physics of matter at an infinitely small scale.
A large, single-arm, electromagnetic calorimeter for the ALICE detector (a large ion collider) has been built to collide two beams of lead ions and generate a quark-gluon plasma--the state of matter hypothesized to exist at the beginning of the universe.
If, like France and Switzerland, you had acted before a certain midnight back in 1995, and spent what may amount to $8 billion (plus shipping and handling), you'll get the Large Hadron Collider, along with A Toroidal LHC Apparatus (ATLAS), and A Large Ion Collidor Experiment (ALICE).
The high energy physics research group includes physicists that are analysing data collected by two CERN experiments on the Large Hadron Collider, ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) and ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus).
The Electrodynamic Ion Funnel is the first product that focuses large ion currents in gases, transmitting the ions to the mass analyzer with nearly 100% efficiency.
Tiny diamonds made in large ion accelerators could be used as miniature grinders or in other industrial tools, they said.
With a large ion in the center of the cage, the fullerene should shrink only so far before it tightens around the ion and shatters.

The university involved itself in world-class research through its participation in a large ion collider experiment (ALICE) as part of the Indian team involved in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at the European Council for Nuclear Research, Geneva.
According to a report in National Geographic News, during the first collisions of the LHC's twin beams of protons, a machine called 'A Large Ion Collider Experiment', or ALICE, collected the results from a proton-proton smashup.
