Medial Attention – Spectroscopy along Flerovium Decay Chains

Our new publication Spectroscopy along Flerovium Decay Chains: Discovery of 280Ds and an Excited State in 282Cn in the journal Physical Review Letters provides exciting anchor points for nuclear theory and hints on the location of the long-sought “Island of Stability”. The paper was labeled ‘Editor’s Suggestion’ and featured in the APS journals Physics magazine. In addition, thanks to press releases issued by Lund University (see as well as from GSI, the publication has received a lot of attention. This is indicated with the Altmetric Attention Score of 170 as of Feb. 21, 2021, see, which measures how much the research output is mentioned in media. For instance, of all outputs from Physical Review Letters, the publication is placed 250 out of about 31 000, see below.
