Superheavy Elements

Abstract

The long quest to detect superheavy elements (SHEs) that might exist in nature and the efforts to artificially synthesize them at accelerators or in multiple-neutron capture reactions is briefly reviewed. Recent reports of the production and detection of the SHEs 113, 114, 115, 116, and 118 are summarized and discussed. Implications of these discoveries and the prospects for the existence and discovery of additional SHE species are considered.
