Thomas Papenbrock, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, will present “The Atomic Nucleus: The Core of Matter, the Fuel of Stars” at the Science Forum on Friday, November 4. His talk will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Café, Rooms C-D. The 40-minute presentation will be followed
Nuclear theorists from UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are among the researchers who have found that Calcium-52 doesn’t quite have the magic scientists once thought.
An international team led by joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory faculty used America’s most powerful supercomputer, Titan, to calculate the neutron distribution and related observables of calcium-48, an isotope with an atomic nucleus consisting of twenty protons and twenty-eight neutrons. Computing the nucleus revealed that the difference between the radii of neutron and proton distributions—called
When the next generation of high performance computing comes to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, UT’s physicists will be working on the first projects that put its power to work.
Thomas Papenbrock, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has been elected a fellow of the American Physical Society, the leading organization of physicists.
The College of Arts and Sciences celebrated outstanding faculty with awards in advising, teaching, research, outreach, and service during its annual Winter Convocation last week.
