At GSI Helmholtzzentrum fÃ¼r Schwerionenforschung, an international team of scientists succeeded in the observation of the chemical element 114, one of the heaviest elements created until now.
A collaboration of Russian and US physicists has finally created element 117 - a superheavy element made of atoms containing 117 protons that is roughly 40% heavier than lead.
U.S. scientists say they have confirmed the production of the superheavy element 114, 10 years after a Russian group first claimed to have made it. The researchers at the U.S.
A team of German scientists has been credited with the discovery of the new â€œsuper-heavyâ€ element 112 more than ten years after intensive laboratory work first yielded a single atom of the novel form of matter.
Modern-day scientific Magellans and Columbusâ€™s, exploring the uncharted seas at the fringes of the Periodic Table of the Elements, have landed on one long-sought island â€” the fabled Island of Stability, home of a new genre of superheavy chemical elements sought for more than three decades.
Revisiting one of physics' most embarrassing cases of scientific misconduct, researchers from Russia and the United States announced Monday that they have created a new super-heavy element, atomic number 118.
Californium is a metallic chemical element. It has the symbol Cf and the atomic number 98. This is a radioactive transuranic (atomic number greater than 92) element. Californium is used for starting nuclear reactors, optimizing coal power plants, the treatment of cancer, and oil drilling. It was first produced by bombarding curium with helium ions. It was first synthesized in 1950 at UC Berkeley. Californium was the 6th element found with an atomic number higher than 92. It was named after...
