β-NMR Investigation of the Depth-Dependent Magnetic Properties of an Antiferromagnetic Surface

β-NMR Investigation of the Depth-Dependent Magnetic Properties of an Antiferromagnetic Surface | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
By measuring the prototypical antiferromagnet $\ensuremath{\alpha}\text{\ensuremath{-}}{\mathrm{Fe}}_{2}{\mathrm{O}}_{3}$, we show that it is possible to determine the static spin orientation and dynamic spin correlations within nanometers from an antiferromagnetic surface using the nuclear spin polarization of implanted $^{8}{\mathrm{Li}}^{+}$ ions detected with $\ensuremath{\beta}$-NMR. Remarkably, the first-order Morin spin reorientation in single crystal $\ensuremath{\alpha}\text{\ensuremath{-}}{\mathrm{Fe}}_{2}{\mathrm{O}}_{3}$ occurs at the same temperature at all depths between 1 and 100 nm from the (110) surface; however, the implanted nuclear spin experiences an increased $1/{T}_{1}$ relaxation rate at shallow depths revealing soft-surface magnons. The surface-localized dynamics decay towards the bulk with a characteristic length of $\ensuremath{\epsilon}=11\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}1\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{nm}$, closely matching the finite-size thresholds of hematite nanostructures.

Earth's Core May Not Just Be Made Of Iron

Earth's Core May Not Just Be Made Of Iron | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Studying earthquakes allows us to gauge what the interior of our planet looks likes. As our measurements improve, so does our understanding of what lies underneath our feet. Now, a new study has suggested that the composition of the core might be more complex than previously thought.

Boson description of low-lying collective states in 128Ba

Boson description of low-lying collective states in 128Ba | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The low-lying collective states in $^{128}\mathrm{Ba}$ are investigated microscopically by means of the boson expansion theory with the self-consistent effective interactions. Calculated level structures and electromagnetic properties are compared with the experimental data. Theoretical structures of the collective wave functions are illustrated in detail for ${0}_{1}^{+},\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{0}_{2}^{+},\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{0}_{3}^{+},\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{2}_{1}^{+},\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{2}_{2}^{+}$, and ${2}_{3}^{+}$ states. In the present results, the main contribution to the ${0}_{2}^{+}$ state of $^{128}\mathrm{Ba}$ comes from the three-phonon component, and the two-phonon component is rather dominant in the ${0}_{3}^{+}$ state. The description of the wave functions is compared to the results of the general collective model.

IUPAP/IUPAC Joint Working Party on the Discovery of Elements Validates Claims for Four New Elements

IUPAP/IUPAC Joint Working Party on the Discovery of Elements Validates Claims for Four New Elements | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The claims for four new elements have been validated in two new reports from the IUPAC/IUPAP Joint Working Party (JWP) and accepted for publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry. The addition of the four, namely elements 113, 115,117, and 118, represents a significant milestone because it completes the seventh row of the Periodic Table. The new elements add to the remarkable progress in extending the periodic table following 114 and 116 validated in 2011, and element 112 validated in 2009.
