by The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences Deformation landscape of the nickel-64 nucleus. Prolate, oblate local minima and main spherical minimum are indicated by red, green and blue ellipsoids, respectively. (Source: IFJ PAN) Until recently, scientists believed that only very massive nuclei could have excited zero-spin states of increased...
