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.
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.
Errors are everywhere, and everything is uncertain. We must understand and estimate how these affect physics, but how do we do it best?
Nuclei that barely hold together and stretch our understanding of nuclear matter? Go on then.
We talk to a superheavyweight in the field of superheavy nuclei.
