Exotic neutron-rich medium-mass nuclei with realistic nuclear forces

Exotic neutron-rich medium-mass nuclei with realistic nuclear forces | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
We present the first application of the newly developed extended Kuo-Krenciglowa (EKK) theory of the effective nucleon-nucleon interaction to shell-model studies of exotic nuclei, including those where conventional approaches with fitted interactions encounter difficulties. This EKK theory enables us to derive an interaction that is suitable for several major shells $(sd+pf$ in this work). By using such an effective interaction obtained from the Entem-Machleidt QCD-based $\ensuremath{\chi}{\mathrm{N}}^{3}\mathrm{LO}$ interaction and the Fujita-Miyazawa three-body force, the energies, $E2$ properties, and spectroscopic factors of low-lying states of neutron-rich Ne, Mg, and Si isotopes are nicely described, as the first shell-model description of the ``island of inversion'' without fit of the interaction. The long-standing question as to how particle-hole excitations occur across the $sd\text{\ensuremath{-}}pf$ magic gap is clarified with distinct differences from the conventional approaches. The shell evolution is shown to appear similarly to earlier studies.

European funding for research on evolution of the universe

European funding for research on evolution of the universe | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The European framework COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) has decided to fund an Action for research on the evolution of the universe by studying the production of chemical elements in stars and stellar explosions. The Action called ChETEC (Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos) is currently supported by 44 proposers throughout 22 countries. Apart from main proposer professor Raphael Hirschi from Keele University in Great Britain also Gabriel Martinez Pinedo, researcher at FAIR and GSI and professor at the Technical University of Darmstadt, is among them. The Action will provide funding to bring European research, science and business together to further our understanding of nuclear processes in the universe.
