Wavy energy potential patterns from scattering nuclei reveal hidden information

Anomalies occur at sub-atomic scale, as nuclei collide and scatter off into each other — an approach used to explore the properties of atomic nuclei. The most basic kind is called ‘elastic scattering,’ in which interacting particles emerge in the same state after they collide. A new approach to analyzing such data harbors potential new interpretations of fundamental information about atomic nuclei.
