Single Nucleon Orbits In spite of the clear differences between atoms and nuclei, physicists looked for similarities and managed to find them. On the basis of the few binding energies which were measured at that time, Bartlett (1932), in the same year of Heisenberg’s paper suggested that, in analogy with electron shells in the atom, in the orbit is completely filled with two protons and two neutrons “while is obtained by adding on a closed with six protons and six neutrons”. Elsasser (1933) started a serious study of proton and neutron shells in nuclei.

The lowest state of a configuration ( identical nucleons is J = 0 if is even. 2. It is if nucleons in the ) of is odd. 3. Of two in the same major shell, the one with the larger has a larger pairing energy. The last rule was needed to explain why ground states with large in odd nuclei are rather rare, she suggested that higher tend to “fill in pairs”. “The object of this paper is to investigate if there are theoretical reasons for these empirical rules”. A given ordered set of single nucleon orbits determines the magic numbers.

Then she writes, “The complete evidence for this has never been summarized, nor is it generally recognized how convincing this evidence is”. The experimental evidence in the paper concerns isotopic abundances, number of isotones, edges of the stability 14 Igal Talmi curve, delayed neutron emission, neutron absorption cross sections and also, tentatively, asymmetric fission. She mentions the fact that shell closure at 20 is understood but does not speculate about the other numbers. It was her paper which forced the shell model on the physics community.
