Idaho State Professor Helps Measure Size of Calcium-48 Nucleus to Accuracy of 25 Billionths of a Nanometer
The imperceptibly small is the subject of research by Idaho State University Professor Dustin McNulty. McNulty has recently been involved in research focusing on neutrons in Calcium-48 with the Calcium Radius Experiment (CREX). He and his team of collaborators were trying to measure how thick the skin of neutrons is on a Calcium-48 nucleus.
