Spin-orbit interaction in relativistic nuclear structure models

Monday September 26th, 2016 Ivan Balog 0

ABSTRACT: Relativistic self-consistent mean-field (SCMF) models naturally account for the coupling of the nucleon spin to its orbital motion, whereas nonrelativistic SCMF methods necessitate a phenomenological ansatz for the effective spin-orbit potential. Recent experimental studies aim to explore the isospin properties of the effective spin-orbit interaction in nuclei. SCMF models […]

Beyond-mean-field boson-fermion model for odd-mass nuclei

Monday September 26th, 2016 Ivan Balog 0

ABSTRACT: A novel method for calculating spectroscopic properties of medium-mass and heavy atomic nuclei with an odd number of nucleons is introduced, based on the framework of nuclear energy density functional theory and the particle-core coupling scheme. The deformation energy surface of the even-even core, as well as the spherical […]

A note on cement in asteroids

Monday September 26th, 2016 Ivan Balog 0

ABSTRACT: Cement mineral tobermorite was formed in hydrothermal experiments on alternation of calcium–aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs) in carbonaceous chondrite meteorites. Unidentified bands at 14 μm were measured for CAIs and the matrix of the Allende meteorite sample, as well as for Hektor and Agamemnon asteroids. The presence of cement nanoparticles may […]
