New Article on Properties of Neutron Matter

The differences of charge radii of mirror nuclei – nuclei with exchanged numbers of protons and neutrons – provide information on the equation of state (EOS) of neutron matter. The differences of the recently measured charge radii of 36,38Ca and those of their stable mirror partner 36S and 38Ar allowed us to restrict a parameter of the EOS.
The result is consistent with earlier results including the recent detection of gravitational waves from the merger of two neutron stars.
