Image for: Laboratory Mass Measurement deepens Insight into Neutron Star Crusts


Structure of a neutron star (top left) and a depth profile of the isotope content of the outer crust (right). In bold print the nuclides are indicated whose masses have been determined experimentally. The changes in the crust structure as a consequence of the mass measurement of zinc-82 are indicated in red. Bottom left: Schematic drawing of the main components of the precision mass spectrometer ISOLTRAP as well as a resonance curve from which the mass of the zinc-82 nuclide has been determined.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
