A regular feature of the nuclear physics scene is the Particles and Nuclei International Conference, which was held in Uppsala, Sweden on 10-16 June.
1999 looks to be a vintage year for "superheavy" nuclei. These heavier-than-uranium isotopes are a 20th-century postcript to the Periodic Table.
Recent experiments that took place at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, near Moscow, reported evidence for element 114, the first inhabitant of a new island of nuclear stability.
The first kaons from the new DAFNE phimeson factory at Frascati underline a fascinating chapter in the evolution of particle physics.
Simulating the immediate aftermath of the Big Bang, strongly interacting particles at high temperature or density are expected to produce weakly interacting "deconfined" quarks and gluons the famo...
Careful analysis of data collected by the NA50 experiment studying high-energy heavy-ion collisions at CERN shows clear signs of new behaviour, suggesting that under these conditions the colliding nu...
What ultimately controls the way particles interact? Different particles appear to interact at high energies in similar ways through a mechanism known as pomeron exchange. Sandy Donnachie explains wha...
A new limit on the electric dipole moment of the neutron comes from an experiment using ultra-cold neutrons at the research reactor at the international Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble, France.
Over half the nucleon's spin is unaccounted for, but circularly-polarized photons could soon reveal where it is.
New results remind us how, in the strange world of the neutral kaon, a fast rewind does not necessarily take you back to where you started.
