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.

Normal mid oceanic ridge basalts (NMORB)-normalized plots of dolerites, olivine dolerites and lamprophyres show higher enrichments of large ion lithophile elements (LILEs) relative to high field strength elements (HFSEs) and marked positive anomalies on Nb which confirm their origins from an enriched mantle source.
Pakistan continues to assist in CMS, as well as the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment).
The developments particularly benefit designs that are capable of using large ion currents (e.g., triple-quadrupole or TOF analyzers), as opposed to those that have limited charge capacities per scan--specifically linear ion traps (approximately [10.sup.4] charges) and Orbitrap/Fourier transform MS (approximately [10.sup.6] charges).
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.
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.
