Nuclear Reactions Radioactivity Fission and Fusion

The thesis provides the necessary experimental and analytical tools to unambiguously observe the atomically resolved chemical reactions. The author shows that there is a simple solution that occurs during barrier crossing in which the highly anharmonic potential at that point in nuclear rearrangements couples high- and low-frequency vibrational modes to give highly localized nuclear motions, reducing hundreds of potential degrees of freedom to just a few key modes.
