What is the size of the atomic nucleus? This deceivably simple question is difficult to answer. While the electric charge distributions in atomic nuclei were measured accurately already half a century ago, our knowledge of the distribution of neutrons is still deficient. In addition to constraining the size of atomic nuclei, the neutron distribution also impacts the number of nuclei that can exist and the size of neutron stars. We present an ab initio calculation of the neutron distribution of… Expand
A study of charge radii and neutron skin thickness near nuclear drip lines
Abstract We studied the charge radius, rms radius and neutron skin thickness Δ r n p in even-even isotopes of Si, S, Ar and Ca and isotones of N = 20, 28, 50 and 82. The Δ r n p in doubly-magic 48Ca,Expand
Bridging scales in nuclear physics Microscopic description of clusterization in light nuclei
In this thesis we present the ab initio no-core shell model (NCSM) and use this framework to study light atomic nuclei with realistic nucleon-nucleon interactions. In particular, we present resultsExpand
New Features in the Electromagnetic Structure of the Neutron
Here we present new results for the Born cross section and the effective form factor of the neutron at the center-of-mass energies ${\bf \sqrt{s}}$ between 2.0 and 3.08 GeV, using 18 data setsExpand
The Thin-Disk Laser for the 2S – 2P Measurement in Muonic Helium
In the project presented in this thesis, a laser system for the spectroscopy of muonic helium ions has been developed. Five 2S-2P transitions were successfully measured in 2013 and 2014 using thisExpand
