# Direct test of the constancy of fundamental nuclear constants

@article{Shlyakhter1976DirectTO, title={Direct test of the constancy of fundamental nuclear constants}, author={A. I. Shlyakhter}, journal={Nature}, year={1976}, volume={264}, pages={340-340} }

THE possibility that fundamental nuclear constants may vary slowly while the Universe expands has been discussed by several authors1–5. I try here to show that the well known resonance properties of the ‘heavy nucleus plus slow neutron’ system make it a sensitive ‘receiver’, sharply tuned to the current values of nuclear constants.
