Old textbook knowledge reconfirmed: Decay rates of radioactive substances are constant

Old textbook knowledge reconfirmed: Decay rates of radioactive substances are constant | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) researchers refute the assumption that the decay rate of some radioactive nuclides depends on the distance between the Earth and the Sun.

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 ...

Ath Godelitsas's curator insight, October 6, 2014 4:55 PM

Fractionation between 235U and 238U is a result of nuclear-field effects with enrichment of 238U in the reduced insoluble species (mostly UO2) and 235U in oxidised mobile species as uranyl ion, UO22+, and its complexes. Therefore, isotopic fractionation effects should be reflected in 238U/235U ratios in uranium ore minerals formed either by reduction of uranium to UO2 or chemical precipitation in the form of U6+ minerals.
