From the CERN Courier: Fast fragmentation produces double firsts for exotic nuclei

"Researchers at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University have made new observations in different regions of the isotopic landscape by examining the nuclear structure of 64Ge and 36Mg," reports the CERN Courier. "Studies of transition rates between excited states and ground states in [N=Z] nuclei provide important information to test shell-model predictions." More
