Some Important Contributions:

This annotated short list of contributions was submitted upon request by Professor Baldo-Ceolin.

  • "Nuclear Interactions of Nuetral K-Mesons of Long Lifetime," Nuovo Cimento, 6:130 (1957), M. Baldo Ceolin et als.

The first experimental demonstration that KoL are a mixture of Ko and Kbaro states of S = ±1 strangeness, confirming the model proposed by Gellmann and Pais and the determination of the difference of mass KoS - KoL;

  • "Anti-Lambda Hyperon," Phys. Rev. Lett., 1:179 (1958), with D.J. Prowse.

The discovery of anti-matter endowed with strangeness (antilambda) in 1958.

  • "Experimental Test of the Selection Rule DeltaS = DeltaQ," Phys. Rev. Lett., 3:132 (1962), M. Baldo Ceolin et als.

The study of the systematic of decay in charged and neutral K mesons and the first determination of the behavior of these interactions with respect to space and time inversion and the exchange of particles with anti-particles (CP and CPT).

  • "Measurement of Muon-Neutrino and Antineutrino Scattering off Electrons," Phys. Rev. Lett., 41:213-216 (1978), M. Baldo Ceolin et als.

An initial confirmation of the unified theories of weak and electromagnetic interactions through the first systematic measurement of the process of neutral currents vµ(vbarµ) e¯ ----> vµ(vbarµ) e¯.

  • "Limit on ve ---> vT Oscillations from the NOMAD Experiment," Phys. Lett., B471:406-410.

Experiments aiming to discover possible oscillations between neutrinos of differing flavour in order to determine their mass.

  • "Search for Neutron-Antineutron Oscillations," Proceedings of the "International Meeting on Astrophysics and Elementary Particles, Common Problems," Rome, Febuary 21-23, 1980, pp. 251-258, M. Baldo Ceolin et als.

  • "A New Experimental Limit on Neutron-Antineutron Oscillations," Zeit.für Physic C, C63:409-416, (1994), M. Baldo Ceolin et. als.

Research on the stability of matter carried out using original methods.
