Nuclear data sheets for A = 168
Every now and then the existing data on nuclear structure is evaluated and published in a data sheet. These data sheets are really nice and a very good help for physicists that, for some reason, wants to quickly evaluate the available nuclear data in some unknown region of the nuclear chart. The problem with these data sheets is that they are often a bit out of date, since the evaluation process is quite involved, so if one wants also the latest results there is always a bit of manual searching in the data bases. But this was not the case for our dysprosium paper since a new data sheet for A = 168 was just about to be published. Thus, we got our work included in the data bases really fast.
So, the fine research that we did has appeared as an entry in the Nuclear Data Sheets, that’s nice. What was that entry? “Structure closely resembles that observed for g.s. bands in lighter even-A Dy isotopes.” Well, I guess that it is a little bit better than Mostly Harmless.
