We look back at the articles which were most popular with our readers in the last 12 months.
Nuclear reactions in stars are the powerhouses of the universe, and its these same processes that create the elements. Understanding these processes is one of the core aims in the field of nuclear astrophysics – something that our recent interview… Read More ›
Dr Florian Reindl and Dr Moritz v. Sivers tell us about the hunt for dark matter and rare nuclear decays using ultra-sensitive detectors.
Professor Hendrik Schatz talks to us about the field that shapes the understanding of everything we see in the night sky and the planet we live on.
The static screening effect in a plasma of charged particles prolongs the lifetime of 8Be
Probing the nucleon with the electron scattering technique is one of the best ways to understand nuclear structure, and understanding this process gives rise to our image of the week. Authors M Karliner, C King and N S Manton from Tel Aviv University… Read More ›
“Once upon a time, the world was simple: the proton contained three quarks, two ups and a down. “
Nuclei are at the core of everything in day to day life. Understanding how they work and interact is a fundamental science vital to applications in the real world as well as pure research.
Image of the Week: Dalitz plots – We really like this image, it looks like Bane from Batman!
A classic way to think of an atomic nucleus is as a sphere; but this isn’t quite right. Many are deformed, and are stranger than you think.
Read an interview with an expert who’s bridging the gap between atomic and nuclear physics.
Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
That’s a lot of electron volts.
