More anomalous nuclear fragments.
Seven physicists from Jadavpur University in Calcutta, Dipak Ghosh, Jaya Roy, Dipak Banerjee, Anuradha Dutta, Ranjan Sengupta, Kaushik Sengupta and Sadhan Naha, did the experiment. They report it in the Feb. 4 PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS.
Working at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Studies in Dubna, USSR, they irradiated a nuclear emulsion with energetic carbon 12 nuclei. As the carbon 12 nuclei struck nuclei in the emulsion, the carbon 12 nuclei shattered. Some of the fragments were alpha particles, and some of these, according to the experiment, showed the anomalously reactive behavior.
