Uclear shell model is based on the shell model for electrons

  • #1
The nuclear shell model is based on the shell model for electrons, and in the electron shell model, lasing is possible under the right conditions. Does this mean that if the nuclear shell model is correct, a nucleus will be able to undergo lasing. And does anyone know if this has ever been observed/created?

I am not much aware of it, but it seems this idea was promoted by Edward Teller in the USA in the frame of the strategic defence initiative. They made several tests and abandoned it.
