The End of Accelerator Physics?

The End of Accelerator Physics? | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
So far, the LHC as well as searches elsewhere for neutralinos have come up empty. While many technical and popular articles have declared, "supersymmetry is dead," this is not yet quite the case. SUSY is still alive, but on life support....

Recoil-decay tagging spectroscopy of 162W

Recoil-decay tagging spectroscopy of 162W | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Excited states in the highly neutron-deficient nucleus $^{162}\mathrm{W}$ have been investigated via the $^{92}\mathrm{Mo}(^{78}\mathrm{Kr},{2\ensuremath{\alpha})}^{162}\mathrm{W}$ reaction. Prompt $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays were detected by the JUROGAM II high-purity germanium detector array and the recoiling fusion-evaporation products were separated by the recoil ion transport unit (RITU) gas-filled recoil separator and identified with the gamma recoil electron alpha tagging (GREAT) spectrome

First observation of 59Ge

First observation of 59Ge | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
In an experiment at the A1900 spectrometer of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University the new isotope $^{59}\mathrm{Ge}$ was identified and the cross section for production of the most neutron-deficient $^{59\ensuremath{-}62}\mathrm{Ge}$ isotopes in the fragmentation of a $^{78}\mathrm{Kr}$ beam at 150 MeV/nucleon measured. This experimental information is relevant for the hunt of new two-proton emitters in the region above the doubly-magic $^{48}\mathrm{Ni

Neutron-induced fission cross section of 240Pu from 0.5 MeV to 3 MeV

Neutron-induced fission cross section of 240Pu from 0.5 MeV to 3 MeV | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
$^{240}\mathrm{Pu}$ has recently been pointed out by a sensitivity study of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) to be one of the isotopes whose fission cross section lacks accuracy to meet the upcoming needs for the future generation of nuclear power plants (GEN-IV). In the High Priority Request List (HPRL) of the OECD, it is suggested that the knowledge of the $^{240}\mathrm{Pu}(n,f)$ cross section should be improved to an accuracy within

Hyperfine Anomalies in Fr: Boundaries of the Spherical Single Particle Model

Hyperfine Anomalies in Fr: Boundaries of the Spherical Single Particle Model | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
We have measured the hyperfine splitting of the $7{P}_{1/2}$ state at the 100 ppm level in Fr isotopes ($^{206g,206m,207,209,213,221}\mathrm{Fr}$) near the closed neutron shell ($N=126$ in $^{213}\mathrm{Fr}$). The measurements in five isotopes and a nuclear isomeric state of francium, combined with previous determinations of the $7{S}_{1/2}$ splittings, reveal the spatial distribution of the nuclear magnetization, i.e., the Bohr-Weisskopf effect. We compare our results with a simple shell model

Nuclear structure studies of 24F

Nuclear structure studies of 24F | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The structure of the $^{24}\mathrm{F}$ nucleus has been studied at GANIL using the $\ensuremath{\beta}$ decay of $^{24}\mathrm{O}$ and the in-beam $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray spectroscopy from the fragmentation of $^{27,28}\mathrm{Na},^{25,26}\mathrm{Ne},$ and $^{29,30}\mathrm{Mg}$ nuclei. Combining these complementary experimental techniques, the level scheme of $^{24}\mathrm{F}$ has been constructed up to $3.6\phantom{\rule{0.28em}{0ex}}\text{MeV}$ by means of particle-$\ensuremath{\gamma}$ and

During the 1920s and 1930s, people put radium on their skin and in their cocktails. They put uranium in health tonics. And they drank water from The Revigorator, which was a pot lined with uranium. In 2009, scientists tested a Revigorator, to see what it actually did.

Determination of γ-ray widths in 15N using nuclear resonance fluorescence

Determination of γ-ray widths in 15N using nuclear resonance fluorescence | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Background: The stable nucleus $^{15}\mathrm{N}$ is the mirror of $^{15}\mathrm{O}$, the bottleneck in the hydrogen burning CNO cycle. Most of the $^{15}\mathrm{N}$ level widths below the proton emission threshold are known from just one nuclear resonance fluorescence (NRF) measurement, with limited precision in some cases. A recent experiment with the AGATA demonstrator array determined level lifetimes using the Doppler shift attenuation method in $^{15}\mathrm{O}$. As a reference and for testi

First application of the Trojan horse method with a radioactive ion beam: Study of the 18F(p,α)15O reaction at astrophysical energies

First application of the Trojan horse method with a radioactive ion beam: Study of the 18F(p,α)15O reaction at astrophysical energies | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Measurement of nuclear cross sections at astrophysical energies involving unstable species is one of the most challenging tasks in experimental nuclear physics. The use of indirect methods is often unavoidable in this scenario. In this paper the Trojan horse method is applied for the first time to a radioactive ion beam-induced reaction studying the ${}^{18}\mathrm{F}(p,\ensuremath{\alpha}$)${}^{15}\mathrm{O}$ process at low energies relevant to astrophysics via the three-body reaction ${}^{2}\m
