Operational Experience at the S-DALINAC A
A report on the status, the operational experience and the future perspectives of the superconducting Darmstadt electron linear accelerator (S-DALINAC) one of the pioneering superconducting electron
Random matrices and chaos in nuclear physics: Nuclear reactions
The application of random-matrix theory (RMT) to compound-nucleus (CN) reactions is reviewed. An introduction into the basic concepts of nuclear scattering theory is followed by a survey of
The Miniball spectrometer
Abstract.The Miniball germanium detector array has been operational at the REX (Radioactive ion beam EXperiment) post accelerator at the Isotope Separator On-Line facility ISOLDE at CERN since 2001.
Generation of GW radiation pulses from a VUV free-electron laser operating in the femtosecond regime.
The generation of ultrashort radiation pulses became possible due to specific tailoring of the bunch charge distribution and a complete characterization of the linear and nonlinear modes of the SASE FEL operation was performed.
Electric Dipole Polarizability of ^{48}Ca and Implications for the Neutron Skin.
The experimental results are in good agreement with ab initio calculations based on chiral effective field theory interactions and with state-of-the-art density-functional calculations, implying a neutron skin in ^{48}Ca of 0.14-0.20 fm.
Experimental observation of the topological structure of exceptional points.
A microwave cavity experiment where exceptional points (EPs), which are square root singularities of the eigenvalues as function of a complex interaction parameter, are encircled in the laboratory and one of the Eigenvectors undergoes a sign change which can be discerned in the field patterns.
Structure of the Hoyle state in 12C.
A closer inspection of the model calculations, which reproduce the experimental findings, reveals that the term Bose-Einstein condensation of three alpha particles must not be taken too literally.
Studying the proton "radius" puzzle with μp elastic scattering
The disagreement between the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen and from electronic measurements is called the proton radius puzzle. The resolution of the puzzle remains unclear and
