  • New measurements of pion-nucleus total cross sections were made at LAMPF and BNL. The results from LAMPF include measurement of the difference of the rms neutron and proton radii of /sup 48/Ca to be 0.08 +- 0.02 and that of /sup 18/O to be 0.19 +- 0.02. The BNL measurements provide a new phenomenology on the downshift and spreading of the (3-3) resonance in nuclei from the first data on heavy nuclei. A new technique for handling the Coulomb effects in total cross section measurements is discussed.
  • We study the density dependence of the nuclear symmetry energy, characterized by its slope parameter L, by means of the information provided by the neutron radius and the neutron skin thickness in finite nuclei. These quantities are extracted from the analysis of data obtained in antiprotonic atoms, from the parity-violating asymmetry at low-momentum transfer in polarized electron scattering in {sup 208}Pb, and from the electric dipole polarizability obtained via polarized proton inelastic scattering at forward angles in {sup 208}Pb. All these experiments provide different constraints on the slope L of the symmetry energy but the corresponding values have a considerablemore » overlap in a range around 50 MeV ≤ L ≤ 70 MeV, in a reasonable agreement with other estimates that use different observables and methods to extract L.« less
  • The stress-strain behavior of <100> single crystals of Mn/sub 1-delta/O has been measured for the first time. The experiments were performed at 1200/sup 0/C varying the oxygen partial pressure P/sub O/sub 2// from 10/sup -12/ to 10/sup -5/ atms which causes the deviation from stoichiometry delta to vary between 5 x 10/sup -2/ to 2%. The upper yield stress and the stress achieved at a zero work-hardening rate vary by a factor of 2 as a function of delta and exhibit a maximum at P/sub O/sub 2// approx. 10/sup -9/ atms. Results suggest that the diffusion of oxygen interstitials controlmore » deformation for large delta while oxygen vacancies control deformation for small delta, an interpretation used to explain the deformation Co/sub 1-delta/O. These results illustrate the intimate relationship between defect properties and deformation in nonstoichiometric oxides.« less
  • When the measured rms radii of nuclei throughout the periodic table are compared with each other, and the result is plotted in a certain way, there seems to be evidence for significant shell effects. A closer look, however, suggests that the rms radii are predicted quite accurately by the Droplet Model (a macroscopic model that contains provisions for the possible formation of a neutron skin), if proper account is taken of the nuclear deformation. 3 figures.

  • BS>The energy of a system of non-interacting fermions in a precessing shell-model oscillator potential is calculated to the fourth order in the total angular momentum. The deviation from the simple rotational pattern of a symmetric top is a sensitive function of the deformation of the system. Results fit observed trends and agree with corresponding data for strongly-deformed even nuclei.
