    Project Details


    The project aims to elucidate the origin and nature of collective nuclear vibrations. The foundations of nuclear theory have been shaken by recent evidence that vibrational nuclei might not vibrate after all. Electric monopole transitions and magnetic moments will be measured to help determine the true nature of these nuclei, and to expose how their collectivity emerges from the complexity of the underlying single-particle motion. The expected outcome is a deeper understanding of emergent phenomena in quantum many-body systems like the atomic nucleus. By enabling rigorous hands-on training in nuclear methods, the project will help meet Australia's need for nuclear-qualified personnel in health, mining, industry, and for national security.
