Nuclear Skin
Although charge density results give information on how protons are distributed in
the nuclei, no experimental techniques exist for determining the total nucleon
distribution
it is generally assumed that neutrons are distributed in roughly the same
way as protons

Binding energy
Binding Energy of an even-A nucleus is generally higher than the
average of the values for the adjacent odd-A nuclei
this even-odd effect is more pronounced in graphing A vs.
the binding energy from the addition of one more nucleon
The very exothermic nature of the fusion of H atoms to form He--the
process that gives rise to the suns radiant energy--follows from the
very large binding energy of
4
He
Energy released from fission of the heaviest nuclei is large because
nuclei near the middle of the periodic table have higher binding
energies per nucleon
The maximum in the nuclear stability curve in the iron-nickel region
(A~56 through 59) is thought to be responsible for the abnormally
high natural abundances of these elements

2nd Term: Surface Energy
Nucleons at surface of nucleus have unsaturated forces
decreasing importance with increasing nuclear size
3rd and 4thTerms: Coulomb Energy
3rd term represents the electrostatic energy that arises from the Coulomb
repulsion between the protons
lowers binding energy
4th term represents correction term for charge distribution with diffuse
boundary
o term: Pairing Energy
binding energies for a given A depend on whether N and Z are even or odd
even-even nuclei, where o=11/A
1/2
, are the stablest
two like particles tend to complete an energy level by pairing opposite spins

Mass Parabolas
For odd A there is only one |-stable nuclide
nearest the minimum of the parabola
For even A there are usually two or three possible |-stable
isobars
all of the even-even type
Friedlander & Kennedy, p.47
Magic Numbers
Certain values of N and Z--2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82, and 126 --exhibit
unusual stability
evidence from masses, binding energies, elemental and
isotopic abundances, numbers of species with given N or
Z, and o-particle energies
accounted for by concept of closed shells in nuclei

Friedlander & Kennedy, p.49
Single-Particle Shell Model
Collisions between nucleons in a nucleus are suppressed by the
Pauli exclusion principle
only accounts for magic numbers 2-20
Strong effect of spin-orbit interactions
if orbital angular momentum (l) and spin of nucleon
interact in such a way that total angular
momentum=l+1/2 lies at a lower energy level than that
with l-1/2, large energy gaps occur above magic
numbers 28-126
Ground states of closed-shell nuclei have spin=0 and even parity

Nuclear volumes are about proportional to nuclear
masses, thus all nuclei have approximately the same
density
Although nuclear densities are high compared to ordinary
matter, nuclei are not densely packed with nucleons
r
o
~1.1 to 1.6 fm
Nuclear radii can mean different things, whether they are
defined by nuclear force field, distribution of charges, or
nuclear mass distribution
The radius of the nuclear force field must be less than the
distance of closest approach (d

~10-20 fm for Cu and 30-60 fm for U
Any positively charged particle subject to nuclear
forces can be used to probe the distance from the center
of a nucleus within which the nuclear (attractive) forces
become significant relative to the Coulombic (repulsive
force).

Since neutrons are not subject to Coulomb forces, one
might expect neutron scattering and absorption
experiments to be easier to interpret, however the
neutrons must be of sufficiently high energy to have de
Broglie wavelengths small compared to nuclear
dimensions, but at high energies, nuclei become quite
transparent to neutrons.

Spin
Nuclei possess angular momenta Ih/2t
I is an integral or half-integral number known as the
nuclear spin
Protons and neutrons have I=1/2
Nucleons in the nucleus, like electrons in an atom, contribute
both orbital angular momentum (integral multiple of h/2 t) and
their intrinsic spins (1/2)
Therefore spin of even-A nucleus is zero or integral and spin of
odd-A nucleus is half-integral
All nuclei of even A and even Z have I=0 in ground state

Magnetic Moments
Nuclei with nonzero angular momenta have magnetic moments

B
m
e
/M
p
is used as the unit of nuclear magnetic moments and called a
nuclear magneton
Magnetic moment results from a distribution of charges in the
neutron, with negative charge concentrated near the periphery and
overbalancing the effect of an equal positive charge nearer the center
Magnetic moments are often expressed in terms of gyromagnetic
ratios
g*I nuclear magnetons, where g is + or - depending upon
whether spin and magnetic moment are in the same
direction
Only nuclei with I>1/2 have quadrupole moments
Interactions of nuclear quadrupole moments with the electric fields
produced by electrons in atoms and molecules give rise to abnormal
hyperfine splittings in spectra
Methods of measurement: optical spectroscopy, microwave
spectroscopy, nuclear resonance absorption, and modified
molecular-beam techniques
Methods of Measurement
1) Hyperfine structure in atomic spectra
2) Atomic Beam method
split into 2I+1 components
3) Resonance techniques

Statistics
If all the coordinates describing a particle in a system are
interchanged with those describing another particle in the
system the absolute magnitude of the wave function
representing the system must remaining the same, but it may
change sign
Fermi-Dirac (sign change)
each completely specified quantum state can be
occupied by only one particle (Pauli exclusion principle)
Bose-Einstein (no sign change)
no restrictions such as Pauli exclusion principle apply
A nucleus will obey Bose or Fermi statistics, depending on
whether it contains an even or odd number of nucleons
Parity
Depending on whether the systems wave function changes sign when
the signs of all the space coordinates are changed, a system has odd or
even parity
Parity is conserved
even+odd=odd, even+even=even, odd+odd=odd
allowed transitions in atoms occur only between an atomic
state of even and one of odd parity
Parity is connected with the angular-momentum quantum number l
states with even l have even parity
states with odd l have odd parity
