Physicists Contribute to Understanding of Atomic Nuclei

Ohio University physicists Kristyn Brandenburg, Zach Meisel, Chowdhury Irin Sultana (M.S. 2019, now a doctoral student at Central Michigan University), Shiv Subedi, and Doug Soltesz

Imagine looking into a mirror at yourself and not recognizing the person staring back at you. The symmetry you are accustomed to is somehow not there. That’s how one member of a team of scientists described a recently discovered phenomenon taking place within the nucleus of an atom. As team […]

Physicists Propose New Model to Study Pairing Properties of Nuclei

(L to R) Dr. Madappa Prakash, Md. Abdullah Al Mamun, and Dr. Constantinos Constantinou

A team of Ohio University nuclear physicists has proposed a new theoretical model for calculating pairing properties of atomic nuclei including those found in extreme astrophysical environments. As in some solids in which two interacting electrons pair up to act as one object that leads to superconductivity, interacting neutrons (or […]
