Lab scientists discover five new nuclei

“The study, conducted this fall, focuses on developing new methods of synthesis for super heavy elements. The newly discovered, exotic nuclei are one isotope each of heavy elements berkelium, neptunium and uranium and two isotopes of the element americium. [..] Apart from discoveries themselves, the discovery is the first proof of the new technique for production of these exotic nuclides.” [From ]
