New theoretical calculations show that an x-ray free-electron-laser pulse can generate transitions in excited nuclei via an indirect process involving electron capture.
New scattering experiments provide evidence for the long-suspected existence of an excited rotational state in carbon-12, related to a state that’s crucial in stellar fusion reactions.
New mass measurements of proton-rich nuclei will allow scientists to more accurately simulate the nucleosynthesis that occurs on the surface of neutron stars.
