Transition from collectivity to single-particle degrees of freedom from magnetic moment measurements on 82Sr and 90Sr

Transition from collectivity to single-particle degrees of freedom from magnetic moment measurements on 82Sr and 90Sr | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The evolution of shell structure and the fragility of the benchmark magic numbers is a topic of major interest in nuclear-structure physics. The authors measured the structure-sensitive g factors of states in unstable even-even strontium isotopes, following $\alpha${}-pickup reactions by krypton beams from a carbon target. The results help elucidate how protons and neutrons contribute to the evolution of nuclear structure in this important mass region where rapid structural changes occur.

Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident for Improving Safety and Security of U.S. Nuclear Plants: Phase 2

Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident for Improving Safety and Security of U.S. Nuclear Plants: Phase 2 | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Download a PDF of "Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident for Improving Safety and Security of U.S. Nuclear Plants" by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for free. Description: The U.S. Congress asked the National Academy of Sciences to conduct a technical study on lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident for improving safety and security of commercial nuclear power plants in the United States. This study was carried out in two phases: Phase 1, issued in 2014, focused on the causes of the Fukushima Daiichi accident and safety-related lessons learned for improving nuclear plant systems, operations, and regulations exclusive of spent fuel storage. This Phase 2 report focuses on three issues: (1) lessons learned from the accident for nuclear plant security, (2) lessons learned for spent fuel storage, and (3) reevaluation of conclusions from previous Academies studies on spent fuel storage.

Screening of nucleon electric dipole moments in nuclei

A partial screening of nucleon electric dipole moments (EDMs) in nuclear systems, which is related to the Schiff mechanism known for neutral atomic systems, is discussed. It is shown that the direct contribution from the neutron EDM to the deuteron EDM is partially screened by about 1% in a zero-range approximation calculation.

Magnetic moment of the 13/2+ isomeric state in 69Cu: Spin alignment in the one-nucleon removal reaction

Magnetic moment of the 13/2+ isomeric state in 69Cu: Spin alignment in the one-nucleon removal reaction | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
We report on a new measurement of the $g$ factor of the ($13/2{}^{+}$) isomeric state in the neutron-rich nucleus $^{69}\mathrm{Cu}$. This study demonstrates the possibility of obtaining considerable nuclear spin alignment for multi-quasiparticle states in single-nucleon removal reactions. The time-dependent perturbed angular distribution (TDPAD) method was used to extract the gyromagnetic factor of the ($13/{2}^{+}$) $[{T}_{1/2}=351(14)$ ns] isomeric state of $^{69}\mathrm{Cu}$. Its $g$ factor was obtained as $g(13/{2}^{+})=0.248(9)$. The experimentally observed spin alignment for the state of interest was deduced as $A=\ensuremath{-}3.3(9)%$.

Nuclear charge and neutron radii and nuclear matter: Trend analysis in Skyrme density-functional-theory approach

Nuclear charge and neutron radii and nuclear matter: Trend analysis in Skyrme density-functional-theory approach | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Background: Radii of charge and neutron distributions are fundamental nuclear properties. They depend on both nuclear interaction parameters related to the equation of state of infinite nuclear matter and on quantal shell effects, which are strongly impacted by the presence of nuclear surface.
