Miroslav Iliaš, PhD. is working in the field of development and applications of methods of relativistic quantum chemistry in the framework of the DIRAC program suite.

In his stay at the SHE-Section at the GSI Institute from February 2016 till January 2017 he is performing relativistic quantum chemical calculation on carbonyls of heavy and superheavy elements with the aim to interpret experimental data.

Hochpräzise Experimente erlauben detaillierte Aussage über das Kernverhalten in hochgeladenen Ionen

In hochpräzisen Messungen am GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung und der Universität Mainz ist einem internationalen Team von Wissenschaftlern ein präziser Test der sogenannten Quantenelektrodynamik gebundener Zustände (BS-QED) gelungen. Dabei wurden erstmals Effekte, die aus der Bewegung des Atomkerns resultieren, berücksichtigt. Die Ergebnisse erweitern wesentlich unser Verständnis über die Wechselwirkung zwischen Elektronen und Atomkernen. Die Wissenschaftler haben einen aktuellen Beitrag in der Fachzeitschrift Nature Communications veröffentlicht.

Last known magic neutron number weakens in heavy elements

An international team of scientists has succeeded to create and detect extremely short-lived atomic nuclei of the element uranium. Having far fewer neutrons than the kind of uranium nuclei found in nature, they exist only for about a millionth of a second. The new data provide key information on how the numbers of neutrons and protons inside exotic heavy nuclei influence their stability. This is important to give better guidance for experiments on the search for new superheavy elements.
