Challenging our understanding of the nuclear size

The observation that tin nuclei suddenly increase in size when the number of neutrons they contain reaches a “magic” number helps test models of nucleon interactions.

Ronald Fernando Garcia Ruiz was awarded the PhD Thesis prize 2018 from the European Physical Society. The prizes are assigned every three years and aim to recognize the excellence of recent PhD theses in experimental, theoretical or applied nuclear physics.


Ronald Fernando Garcia Ruiz, lead scientist in the Calcium isotope study at the COLLAPS experiment (ISOLDE) explains the latest results.

CERN Researchers at ISOLDE facility show the supposedly doubly-magic nucleus 52Ca has an unexpectedly large charge radius

Has the magic gone from Calcium-52?
