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

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.

## X-rays: a century of discovery, diffraction, and dynamical theory | OUPblog

The International Year of Light provides a good opportunity to revisit the early studies on the optical properties of X-rays. X-rays were discovered by W. C. Röntgen on the evening of 8 November 1895 while he was redoing some of Hertz’s experiments on cathode rays. By the end of the year, even before informing the world of his discovery, he had observed the basic properties of X-rays: like light, they propagate as straight lines and are diffused by turbid media, but are not deflected by a prism,

Thanks to Mikko Hakala (@Mikko Hakala and @hakala_mo) for suggesting this wonderful explanation of the story I posted in a previous article.

## Acceleration in the linear non-scaling fixed-field alternating-gradient accelerator EMMA

Rapid particle acceleration is possible using a fixed-field alternating-gradient machine[mdash]but /`scaling/' in its design has been necessary to avoid beam blow-up and loss. The demonstration now of acceleration in such a machine without scaling has positive implications for future particle accelerators.
