Studies of transition rates between excited states and ground states in these nuclei provide important information to test shell-model predictions.
Jefferson Laboratory researchers discuss two new models of spin transfer.
Researchers at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University have produced the heaviest silicon isotope ever observed.
Physicists meeting in Finland warm up for heavy-ion physics at the LHC.
A report from the latest workshop on deep-inelastic scattering.
After several years of independently gathering and analyzing data at Fermilab’s Tevatron, the DØ and CDF collaborations have reported the observation of the same new baryon within days of each othe...
The Japan Lattice QCD Collaboration has used numerical simulations to reproduce spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking (SCSB) in quantum chromodynamics (QCD).
The properties of quark–gluon plasma (QGP), where the quarks and gluons are no longer confined within hadrons, lead to intriguing effects that have already been studied in heavy-ion collisions at CE...
Construction should begin later this year on the new Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Darmstadt, and the first experiments could start up in 2012.
A new heavy-ion linear accelerator based in the US would provide the opportunity to tackle directly the current challenges arising from investigations of nuclear science.
