Pushing the boundaries of chemistry: Properties of heaviest element studied so far measured

Superheavy element 114 (flerovium) is a volatile metal

20-Sep-2022

An international research team has succeeded in gaining new insights into the chemical properties of the superheavy element flerovium — element 114 — at the accelerator facilities of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. The measurements show that flerovium is the most ...

New insights into element synthesis in the universe

17-Nov-2021

How are chemical elements produced in our Universe? Where do heavy elements like gold and uranium come from? Using computer simulations, a research team from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, together with colleagues from Belgium and Japan, shows that the synthesis ...

Criteria for the Addition of Superheavy Chemical Elements to the Periodic Table

27-Feb-2019

When exactly does a newly created element really exist? What requirements must be fulfilled for its measurement to be recognized and for the element to be added to the periodic table of chemical elements? And in the case of several claims, to whom is the discovery attributed, and thus the right ...

Heavy elements in neutron star mergers detected

Predictions by GSI scientists confirmed

18-Oct-2017

Central predictions by GSI scientists on the formation of heavy elements such as gold and platinum in the universe have now been observed astrophysically. For the first time gravitational waves of merging neutron stars were detected. This also puts further focus on the future accelerator facility ...

Four new atomic nuclei discovered

New isotopes of Berkelium, Neptunium and Americium

11-Sep-2015

For the experiment, the scientists shot at a 300-nanometer-thick foil of curium with accelerated calcium nuclei. In the collisions studied, the atomic nuclei of the two elements touched, and formed a compound system for an extremely short time. Before the compound system could break apart again, ...

Observation of the superheavy element 117

New findings mark important step towards the capability to observe long-lived superheavy nuclei

06-May-2014

The periodic table of the elements is to get crowded towards its heaviest members. Evidence for the artificial creation of element 117 has recently been obtained at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, an accelerator laboratory located in Darmstadt, Germany. The experiment was ...

Tin-100, a doubly magic nucleus

22-Jun-2012

A few minutes after the Big Bang the universe contained no other elements than hydrogen and helium. Physicists of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), the Cluster of Excellence “Universe” and the Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research (GSI) have now succeeded in producing tin-100, a very ...

Accelerator technology of the future

GSI Helmholtzzentrum in Darmstadt uses laser for particle acceleration

24-May-2011

In a successful test conducted at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum a group of scientists used the PHELIX high-performance laser to accelerate hydrogen ions to about ten percent of the speed of light. This makes GSI one of the few research centers worldwide that can accelerate particles not only with ...
