Room 207 in the Świerk Science & Technology Park building

Recent successful syntheses of super-heavy nuclei will be briefly recalled. Perspectives of future research on such nuclei will be discussed. Cross-sections for synthesis of yet unknown elements calculated according to selected theoretical models will be given. Particular attention will be drawn to natural constraints to be expected in further searches for super-heavy elements in the labs. Theoretical difficulties in modelling of similar phenomena will be presented. A few intriguing opportunities to study exotic states of nuclei will be pointed out; we predict that the latter states should be more stable than those currently known. Limitation of lifetime due to alpha particle emission and spontaneous fission should be less severe if some specific quantum characteristic is preserved in the decay.

NCBJ bus leaves to Świerk at 10.25 am from entrance gate to the Hoża 69 premises in Warsaw.
