[paper] Interplay between nuclear shell evolution and shape deformation revealed by the magnetic moment of 75Cu

Interplay between nuclear shell evolution and shape deformation revealed by the magnetic moment of 75Cu Y. Ishikawa et al. Nature Physics (2019) DOI: 10.1038/s41567-018-0410-7 Exotic nuclei are characterized by having a number of neutrons (or protons) in excess relative to stable nuclei. Their shell structure, which represents single-particle motion in a nucleus, may vary due… Read More [paper] Interplay between nuclear shell evolution and shape deformation revealed by the magnetic moment of 75Cu

Quantum electrodynamics and the proton size

Finding discrepancies between the predictions of fundamental theories and experimental observations is the main driver to develop physics further — the route to more advanced theories (‘new physics’) that fix the discrepancies. In that sense, quantum electrodynamics (QED) is currently seen as the most advanced fundamental theory, serving as the blueprint for any other quantum… Read More Quantum electrodynamics and the proton size
