Evolution of nuclear shapes in odd-mass yttrium and niobium isotopes from lifetime measurements following fission reactions

Evolution of nuclear shapes in odd-mass yttrium and niobium isotopes from lifetime measurements following fission reactions | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Lifetimes of excited states in $^{99}\mathrm{Y},^{101}\mathrm{Y},^{101}\mathrm{Nb},^{103}\mathrm{Nb}$, and $^{105}\mathrm{Nb}$ were measured in an experiment using the recoil distance Doppler shift method at GANIL (Grand Acc\'el\'erateur National d'Ions Lourds). The neutron-rich nuclei were produced in fission reactions between a $^{238}\mathrm{U}$ beam and a $^{9}\mathrm{Be}$ target. Prompt $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays were measured with the EXOGAM array and correlated with fission fragments that were identified in mass and atomic number with the VAMOS++ spectrometer. The measured lifetimes, together with branching ratios, provide $B(M1)$ and $B(E2)$ values for the strongly coupled rotational bands built on the $[422]5/{2}^{+}$ ground state in the Y and Nb nuclei with neutron number $N\ensuremath{\ge}60$. The comparison of the experimental results with triaxial particle-rotor calculations provides information about the evolution of the nuclear shape in this mass region.

Equations of state for supernovae and compact stars

Equations of state for supernovae and compact stars | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
What are the thermodynamic properties of matter at extreme densities, even exceeding nuclear matter density severely? How can we describe the composition of matter for such conditions, the resulting pressure, and the maximum mass of cold neutron stars? How is this affected by finite temperatures, as they occur in core collapse supernovae and in compact star mergers? This review addresses these points within the framework of constraints from experiments as well as astronomical observations.

Rare Nuclear Test Films Saved, Declassified, and Uploaded to YouTube

Rare Nuclear Test Films Saved, Declassified, and Uploaded to YouTube | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
From 1945 until 1962, the United States conducted 210 atmospheric nuclear tests—the kind with the big mushroom cloud and all that jazz. Above-ground nuke testing was banned in 1963, but there are thousands of films from those tests that have just been rotting in secret vaults around the country. But starting today you can see many of them on YouTube.

Electromagnetic Moments of Radioactive 136Te and the Emergence of Collectivity 2p+n Outside of Double-Magic 132Sn

Electromagnetic Moments of Radioactive 136Te and the Emergence of Collectivity 2p+n Outside of Double-Magic 132Sn | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Radioactive $^{136}\mathrm{Te}$ has two valence protons and two valence neutrons outside of the $^{132}\mathrm{Sn}$ double shell closure, providing a simple laboratory for exploring the emergence of collectivity and nucleon-nucleon interactions. Coulomb excitation of $^{136}\mathrm{Te}$ on a titanium target was utilized to determine an extensive set of electromagnetic moments for the three lowest-lying states, including $B(E2;{0}_{1}^{+}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}{2}_{1}^{+})$, $Q({2}_{1}^{+})$, and $g({2}_{1}^{+})$. The results indicate that the first-excited state, ${2}_{1}^{+}$, composed of the simple $2p\ensuremath{\bigoplus}2n$ system, is prolate deformed, and its wave function is dominated by excited valence neutron configurations, but not to the extent previously suggested. It is demonstrated that extreme sensitivity of $g({2}_{1}^{+})$ to the proton and neutron contributions to the wave function provides unique insight into the nature of emerging collectivity, and $g({2}_{1}^{+})$ was used to differentiate among several state-of-the-art theoretical calculations. Our results are best described by the most recent shell model calculations.
