The AME 2020 atomic mass evaluation (II). Tables, graphs and references

This is the second part of the new evaluation of atomic masses, AME2020. Using least-squares adjustments to all evaluated and accepted experimental data, described in Part I, we derived tables with

Bethe–Weizsäcker semiempirical mass formula coefficients 2019 update based on AME2016

In the present work, the classical Bethe–Weizsäcker (BW) mass formula with five energy terms is revisited and updated. We use the least-squares adjustments on the binding energy of 2497 different

Measurement and microscopic description of odd–even staggering of charge radii of exotic copper isotopes

Nuclear charge radii globally scale with atomic mass number A as A 1∕3 , and isotopes with an odd number of neutrons are usually slightly smaller in size than their even-neutron neighbours. This

A digital pulse fitting method for the $ \alpha$α decay studies of short-lived nuclei

Abstract.When studying short-lived nuclei via $ \alpha$α spectroscopic methods at recoil separators, the decay events tend to happen immediately after the recoil implantations or the decays of parent

Characterization of the shape-staggering effect in mercury nuclei

In rare cases, the removal of a single proton (Z) or neutron (N) from an atomic nucleus leads to a dramatic shape change. These instances are crucial for understanding the components of the nuclear

N and Z dependence of nuclear charge radii

This paper is devoted to the analysis of the general trends in the nucleon number dependence of the experimental root-mean-square (rms) charge radii. It is based on the data obtained by different

The new isotope 208Th

Abstract.The new neutron-deficient isotope 208Th was produced in the complete-fusion reaction 64Ni + 147Sm $ \rightarrow$208Th + 3n . Evaporation residues were separated in-flight by the velocity
