Mobile imager of fast neutrons spots radiation source at a distance and through shielding

Mobile imager of fast neutrons spots radiation source at a distance and through shielding | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
A nuclear device has been hidden in a high-rise building in a major metropolitan area. Emergency responders have intelligence that narrows down the location to a single city block, but it isn't safe to search door-to-door. Can they identify the exact location of the device quickly without the culprits ...

A surprisingly long-lived excited state in a neutron-rich nucleus

A surprisingly long-lived excited state in a neutron-rich nucleus | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The stability of an atomic nucleus strongly depends on the number of protons and neutrons it contains. Some nuclei can, in principle, live forever, whereas others last only a fraction of a second before decaying into different nuclei. Hiroshi Watanabe from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based ...
