## Nuclear-matter radius studies from 58Ni(α,α) experiments at the GSI Experimental Storage Ring with the EXL facility

A novel method for measuring nuclear reactions in inverse kinematics with stored ion beams was successfully used to extract the nuclear-matter radius of $^{58}\mathrm{Ni}$. The experiment was performed at the experimental heavy-ion storage ring at the GSI facility using a stored $^{58}\mathrm{Ni}$ beam at energies of 100 and 150 MeV/u and an internal helium gas-jet target. Elastically scattered $\ensuremath{\alpha}$-recoils at low momentum transfers were measured with an in-ring detector system compatible with ultrahigh vacuum. Experimental angular distributions were fitted using density-dependent optical model potentials within the eikonal approximation. This permitted the extraction of the point-matter root-mean-square radius of $^{58}\mathrm{Ni}$ with an average value of 3.70(7) fm. Results from this work are in good agreement with several experiments performed in the past in normal kinematics. This pioneering experiment demonstrates a major breakthrough towards future investigations with far-from-stability stored beams using the present technique.

## Nuclear Science: Mapping Out Red Tide - Canadian Nuclear Association

Seafood lovers could one day find their plates dry thanks to climate change. Findings reported on by the Marine Stewardship Council indicate that increasing greenhouse gas emissions absorbed by our world’s ocean are causing them to heat up and become more acidic. These changes threaten the very habitats that fish and other marine organisms like shellfish need to survive.

## It’s elemental

Atom smashers have recently produced some new elements. Their appearance was brief, but long enough to fill out the periodic table. Lawrence Livermore's Mark Stoyer explains to Big Picture Science how new elements form and how, often, they only last for a millisecond. He discusses how the four newest elements on the periodic table were named. And he discusses the elusive island of stability, which is a term in nuclear physics that refers to the possible existence of a region beyond the current periodic table where new superheavy elements with special numbers of neutrons and protons would exhibit increased stability. Such an island would extend the periodic table to even heavier elements and support longer isotopic lifetimes to enable chemistry experiments. Listen to Stoyer on Big Picture Science, the science radio show & podcast of the SETI Institute.
