Neutrons Protons Nucleus

Neutrons Play the Lead to Protons in Dance around “Double-Magic” Nucleus

Electric and magnetic properties of a radioactive atom provide unique insight into the nature of proton and neutron motion.

Metal in Chains

If one looked deep into three different solids using a super-microscope, one would, in principle, always see the same thing: atomic nuclei arranged in...

Quantum Fluctuations Help Solve Decade-old Puzzle

A high-energy nuclear physics puzzle that scientists have been trying to solve for ten years has just been cracked by computer simulation. The problem...

Physics Researchers Question Calcium-52’s Magic

For decades nuclear physicists have tried to learn more about which elements, or their various isotopes, are “magic.”This is not to say that they...

From the atomic to the nuclear clock

Measuring time using oscillations of atomic nuclei might significantly improve precision beyond that of current atomic clocks. Physicists have now taken an important step...

Force that Makes Antimatter Stick Together Measured

Antiproton pairs generated in high-energy heavy-ion collisions interact with a strong attractive force.

Diamonds May Be the Key to Future NMR/MRI Technologies

Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have demonstrated that...

Strange quantum phenomenon achieved at room temperature in semiconductor wafers

Entanglement is one of the strangest phenomena predicted by quantum mechanics, the theory that underlies most of modern physics: It says that two particles...

Five new atomic nuclei to be added the chart of nuclides

Lawrence Livermore scientists, in conjunction with international researchers, have discovered five new atomic nuclei to be added the chart of nuclides.The study, conducted this...

New exotic particle state puzzles theorists

The standard model of particle physics defines quarks as the fundamental components of atomic nuclei. A proton consists of one “up” and two “down”...
