Bohr-Weisskopf effect in light nuclei

  1. Jun 19, 2011 #1
    In light nuclei an apparent hyperfine anomaly can seem to be present. This is however due to the quantummechanical zero-point motion of the nucleus.

    Is it possible to correct for this zero-point motion in experiment?

    No nuclear physicists here? :( (More jobs for me when I graduate :cool: )
