Isotope shift measurements on three light calcium isotopes (Ca-36 to Ca-39) have been published in Nature Physics. The measurements were performed at NSCL/MSU and LaserSpHERe has contributed by the development of the fluorescence detection region. The publication is announced in a Press Release by TU Darmstadt (idw, in German) entitled „Rätselhafte Größe extrem leichter Calciumisotope". A corresponding version in English can be found at the MSU web page with the title “Puzzling sizes of extremely light calcium isotopes”.
