The beams at the edge of physics

, Physics World

Creating a new cutting-edge accelerator isn’t cheap or easy. But the upcoming Facility for Rare Isotope Beams in Michigan promises great things for nuclear physicists, especially those with applications in mind.

Stable nickel-64 nuclei take three distinct shapes

, Newswise

Scientists have identified three distinct shapes in stable nickel-64, a stable isotope of nickel. This discovery increases the predictive power of such nuclear structure calculations for nuclei that can only be reached at next-generation rare-isotope facilities such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams.
