The deuteron — one of the simplest atomic nuclei, consisting of just one proton and one neutron — is considerably smaller than previously thought. The new result is consistent with a 2010 study, in which the researchers measured the proton and found a significantly smaller value than previous research using different experimental methods.

Evening lectures: scientific insights into art and cultural heritage

In a new series of evening lectures in Dresden, experts from France, Austria and Germany present their research on art and cultural heritage from the stone age to ancient until modern times. The participants will find out which chemical methods or how ion-, synchrotronbeams or neutrons are used to examine stone age ivory, greek bronze coins or antique paintings without doing any harm to them.
