Dineutron



A dineutron is a hypothetical particle consisting of two neutrons that was suggested to have a transitory existence in nuclear reactions produced by helions that result in the formation of a proton and a nucleus having the same atomic number as the target nucleus but a mass number two units greater.

Additional recommended knowledge

A system made up of only two neutrons is not bound, though the attraction between them is very nearly enough to make them so.
