The three-nucleon force reviewed
Published on:22 March 2012

KVI-scientists Nasser Kalantar and Johan Messchendorp have recently published a review article in the high-impact journal Reports on Progress in Physics, with the title “Signatures of three-nucleon interactions in few-nucleon systems”. The article has been published together with scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich and Ruhr University Bochum (both Germany). A picture of the detection system at KVI made it to the cover of the journal. The article provides an extensive theoretical and experimental overview of the present understanding of three-nucleon forces and its implications in the field of nuclear physics.

New idea for simplifying Higgs analysis
Published on:20 January 2012
If the long-expected Higgs particle is indeed discovered by the LHC then how will we know for certain that it possesses the characteristics predicted by the Standard Model of elementary particles? A relatively simple way could be to examine the momentum distribution of the Higgs-like particle. This new idea has been proposed in an article by KVI Professor Daniël Boer and co-authors, which was published today by the renowned journal Physical Review Letters.
