    • The Chemical Cosmos: a guided tour


      from Lightcurve Films Added 147 7 6

      The Chemical Cosmos: a guided tour, is a new book by Prof. Steve Miller from University College London. In this short film, Prof. Miller presents his book. "If you have ever wondered how we get from the awesome impersonality of the Big Bang universe to the point where living creatures can start to form, and evolve into beings like you, your friends and your family, wonder no more. Steve Miller provides us with a tour through the chemical evolution of the universe, from the formation of the first molecules all the way to the chemicals required for life to evolve. Using a simple Hydrogen molecule – known as H-three-plus - as a guide, he takes us on a journey that starts with the birth of the first stars, and how, in dying, they pour their hearts out into enriching the universe in which we live."

        • Odd-Z Transactinide Compound Nucleus Reactions Including the Discovery of 260Bh - Wilk - Dance Your PhD 2012


          from Sarah Wilk Added 4,053 6 6

          My PhD research was on studying pairs of heavy-element reactions to see if there was a better way to make these isotopes. By shooting an ion beam of a particular energy from an accelerator at a target and measuring the decays of the particular isotope we made in a detector further away, we can determine the reaction probability (cross section) of that reaction. The cross section is a ratio of the production rate of the thing you want to make by the beam dose per unit area by the number of target nuclei per unit area. If you make the same isotope two different ways and one way has a significantly higher cross section, it indicates a favored reaction. In my dissertation research I looked at eight different reactions, or four pairs, making the elements Db, Bh, Mt, and Rg. If you aren’t familiar with those elements, look at the bottom of the transition metals on the periodic table. The cyclotron accelerates beam ions in an outwardly spiraling horizontal path. If you look closely you can see that the beam ball color and the target hoop color are combined in the hoop color of the product atom, most of the time. (I didn’t have any white LED beam balls.) I used t-shirts of different colors with their element symbols to show that the combination of the beam ball and target hoop made something completely different. The product atom recoils out of the target and travels along with unreacted beam and gets separated along the way to the detector. The decaying atom of Mt first undergoes alpha decay by getting rid of the yellow ball. The so-called “daughter” product Bh also decays by alpha emission to Db, but the Db atom grabs a red ball representing an electron and turns into Rf. This isotope of Rf spontaneously fissions – or splits in two – and that ends the decay chain. I used this same kind of experimental method to discover the new isotope 260Bh, which is so awesome I had to use fire to represent it. You see eight “data points” towards the end of the video but I only list five reactions plus the new isotope because those are the ones I did myself. The other three data points were added to my results from a thorough meta-analysis of the literature. The short answer to the question of “is there a favored reaction method?” is NO. The statistical uncertainty in the cross sections of each reaction pair overlap, represented at the end by the rotating hoops. Thanks for watching!

            A presentation film of my friends work (developing hydrophobic additive). Scientific, but I find it pretty interesting (also because of some things, I'm doing and which are not so sicentific and can be seen here around;).
