• Indirect study of the stellar ³⁴ Ar(α,p) ³⁷K reaction rate through ⁴⁰Ca(p,t) ³⁸Ca reaction measurements 

      Long, A. M.; Adachi, T.; Beard, M.; Berg, G. P. A.; Buthelezi, Z.; Carter, J.; Couder, M.; deBoer, R. J.; Fearick, R. W.; Fortsch, S. V.; Gorres, J.; Mira, J. P.; Murray, S. H. T.; Neveling, R.; Papka, P.; Smit, F. D.; Sideras-Haddad, E.; Swartz, J. A.; Talwar, R.; Usman, I. T.; Wiescher, M.; Van Zyl, J. J.; Volya, A. (American Physical Society, 2017)
      The ³⁴Ar(α,p)³⁷K reaction is believed to be one of the last in a sequence of (α,p) and (p,γ) reactions within the Tz=−1, sd-shell nuclei, known as the αp-process. This process is expected to influence the shape and rise ...
    • Glass transitions in monodisperse cluster-forming ensembles : vortex matter in type-1.5 superconductors 

      Diaz-Mendez, Rogelio; Mezzacapo, Fabio; Lechner, Wolfgang; Cinti, Fabio; Babaev, Egor; Pupillo, Guido (American Physical Society, 2017)
      At low enough temperatures and high densities, the equilibrium configuration of an ensemble of ultrasoft particles is a self-assembled, ordered, cluster crystal. In the present Letter, we explore the out-of-equilibrium ...
    • Fully self-consistent relativistic Brueckner-Hartree-Fock theory for finite nuclei 

      Shen, Shihang; Liang, Haozhao; Meng, Jie; Ring, Peter; Zhang, Shuangquan (American Physical Society, 2017)
      Starting from the relativistic form of the Bonn potential as a bare nucleon-nucleon interaction, the full relativistic Brueckner-Hartree-Fock (RBHF) equations are solved for finite nuclei in a fully self-consistent basis. ...
    • Examining the role of protein structural dynamics in drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis 

      Shaw, Daniel J.; Hill, Rachel E.; Simpson, Niall; Husseini, Fouad S.; Robb, Kirsty; Greetham, Gregory M.; Towrie, Michael; Parker, Anthony W.; Robinson, David; Hirst, Jonathan D.; Hoskisson, Paul A.; Hunt, Neil T. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
      Antimicrobial resistance represents a growing global health problem. The emergence of novel resistance mechanisms necessitates the development of alternative approaches to investigate the molecular fundamentals of resistance, ...
    • Examination of evidence for collinear cluster tri-partition 

      Pyatkov, Yu. V.; Kamanin, D. V.; Alexandrov, A. A.; Alexandrova, I. A.; Goryainova, Z. I.; Malaza, V.; Mkaza, N.; Kuznetsova, E. A.; Strekalovsky, A. O.; Strekalovsky, O. V.; Zhuchko, V. E. (American Physical Society, 2017)
      Background: In a series of experiments at different time-of-flight spectrometers of heavy ions we have observed manifestations of a new at least ternary decay channel of low excited heavy nuclei. Due to specific features ...
    • Consistency between SU(3) and SU(2) covariant baryon chiral perturbation theory for the nucleon mass 

      Ren, Xiu-Lei; Alvarez-Ruso, L.; Geng, Li-Sheng; Ledwig, Tim; Meng, Jie; Vacas, M. J. Vicente (Elsevier, 2017)
      Treating the strange quark mass as a heavy scale compared to the light quark mass, we perform a matching of the nucleon mass in the SU(3) sector to the two-flavor case in covariant baryon chiral perturbation theory. The ...
    • Classical and quantum filaments in the ground state of trapped dipolar Bose gases 

      Cinti, Fabio; Boninsegni, Massimo (American Physical Society, 2017)
      We study, by quantum Monte Carlo simulations, the ground state of a harmonically confined dipolar Bose gas with aligned dipole moments and with the inclusion of a repulsive two-body potential of varying range. Two different ...
    • Characterization of the proposed 4−α cluster state candidate in ¹⁶O 

      Li, K. C. W.; Neveling, R.; Adsley, P.; Papka, P.; Smit, F. D.; Brummer, J. W.; Diget, C. Aa.; Freer, M.; Harakeh, M. N.; Kokalova, Tz.; Nemulodi, F.; Pellegri, L.; Rebeiro, B.; Swartz, J. A.; Triambak, S.; Van Zyl, J. J.; Wheldon, C. (American Physical Society, 2017)
      The 0¹⁶O(α,α′) reaction was studied at θlab=0∘ at an incident energy of Elab=200 MeV using the K600 magnetic spectrometer at iThemba LABS. Proton decay and α decay from the natural parity states were observed in a ...
