Abstract

Peak amplitude measurements of the fundamental mode of oscillation of a suspended aluminum alloy bar hit by an electron beam show that the amplitude is enhanced by a factor similar to 3.5 when the material is in the superconducting state. This result is consistent with the cosmic ray observations performed by the resonant gravitational wave detector NAUTILUS, made of the same alloy, when operated in the superconducting state. A comparison of the experimental data with the predictions of the model describing the underlying physical process is also presented. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
