A variety of structural phenomena in exotic short-lived nuclei far from stability, especially in systems close to the particle drip lines, challenge model descriptions based on the self-consistent mean-field approximation. Because the Fermi level in a drip-line nucleus is very close to the continuum, both weakly-bound states and low-lying positive energy single-particle resonant states are essential to determine the ground state properties of such systems. The research team at Peking...

Ytterbium was discovered in 1878, but until it recently became useful in atomic clocks, the soft metal rarely made the news. Now ytterbium has a new claim to scientific fame. Measurements with ytterbium-174, an isotope with 70 protons and 104 neutrons, have shown the largest effects of parity violation in an atom ever observed "“ a hundred times larger than the most precise measurements made so far, with the element cesium."Parity" assumes that, on the atomic scale, nature behaves...

The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous particle accelerator whose 17-mile tunnel straddles the borders of France and Switzerland. A group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno has analyzed data from the accelerator that could ultimately prove or disprove the possibility of a fifth force of nature. As the largest science instrument ever built, the LHC has the science community buzzing with excitement as it may help in understanding the inner workings of Nature. Remarkably, some of...

Scientists say they assessed more than 50 Illinois highway rest areas and weigh stations as possible sites for wind turbines and found none acceptable. University of Illinois Professor Patrick Chapman and graduate student Piotr Wiczkowski performed the study for state officials who wanted to determine the feasibility of using wind to provide electricity at the sites. Wiczkowski and Chapman said what they were looking for was grid parity. They determined what the cost would be to install and...
