Meson

A hadron made from an even number of quark constituents The basic structure of most mesons is one quark and one antiquark.

Meson

In particle physics, mesons (z or z) are hadronic subatomic particles composed of one quark and one antiquark, bound together by the strong interaction. Because mesons are composed of sub-particles, they have a physical size, with a diameter roughly one femtometre,{cn|date=August 2014} which is about {frac|2|3} the size of a proton or neutron. All...

Meson

• (n.) The mesial plane dividing the body of an animal into similar right and left halves. The line in which it meets the dorsal surface has been called the dorsimeson, and the corresponding ventral edge the ventrimeson.

Meson

A member of the class of short lived, elementary particles having rest masses between that of the electron and the proton. Mesons are bosons, i.e., have integral intrinsic angular momentum. Examples: pi-mesons (pions) and K-mesons (kaons).

meson

A type of hadron composed of one quark and one antiquark. Equivalently, a meson is a particle that is both a hadron and a boson, or any particle whose decay products do not include a baryon. The commonest types of mesons are pions (pi mesons) and kaons (K mesons). These are also the only types of ...

Meson

A type of hadron with whole-number units of spin. This family includes the pion, kaon, and eta. It is made up of a quark and its antimatter counterpart, bonded together. Mesons have a short mean life (less than 10-8 second) because (in the case of pi-zero meson) the quark and antiquark can soon annihilate one another. See also: Blackett,...

meson

In physics, a group of unstable subatomic particles made up of a quark and an antiquark. They are found in cosmic radiation, and are emitted by nuclei under bombardment by very high-energy particles. The mesons form a subclass of the hadrons and include the kaons and pions. Their existence was predicted in 1935 by Japanese physicist Hideki Yuka...
