Magnetic splitting of quasimolecular electronic states in strong fields

Published

Journal Article

The heavy-ion motion in sub-Coulomb collisions generates extreme magnetic fields. The hyperfine splitting of the spin- quasimolecular electronic states in U + U is found to reach 10% of the molecular binding energy (100 keV). Also Pb+Pb and Xe+Xe collisions are considered. © 1976 The American Physical Society.
