Nuclei Theory


Within a three-dimensionalmodel of interaction of a powerful electromagnetic fieldwith plasma of solid-state density, the effect of acceleration of calcium nuclei ( 20 48 Ca) to high energies that are likely to be sufficient for the synthesis of superheavy elements within the “stability island” of the periodic table of elements is obtained by numerically solving the Vlasov–Maxwell equations.
