Researchers confirm nuclear structure theory by measuring nuclear radii of cadmium isotopes

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Physicists at the TU Darmstadt and their collaboration partners have performed laser spectroscopy on cadmium isotopes to confirm an improved model of the atomic nucleus. It has been developed to describe the exceptional behaviour of the radii of calcium isotopes. The results published in Physical Review Letters could be a step towards a global model of the nuclear structure.

Is it so different from traditional nuclear atomic model? Is it possible to clarify to solve the limitations created from Rutherford's atomic model and Bohr's atomic model

This is not about a model of the atom, but a model of the nucleus, i.e., the structure of protons and neutrons inside the nucleus.
