Most notably, berkelium's electrons behave in strange ways, seemingly violating the laws of quantum mechanics. The more we learn about this element, the more it seems we might have to amend some of our most established theories just to account for it. “It's almost like being in an alternate universe ...
For the past three years, Thomas Albrecht-Schmitt and his team of researchers have been performing experiments on berkelium, element number 97— and the results diverged from what might be expected. Instead of obeying quantum mechanics, they found that the element's behavior was better described ...

In terms of the electrons in berkelium, the thinking goes that as the electrons begin to move at extremely fast speeds around each atom's highly charged nucleus – at up to significant fractions of the speed of light – this causes them to become heavy, and behave in ways that defy a quantum explanation of ...
The study, which took more than three years to complete, involved the element berkelium, or Bk on the Periodic Table. Through experiments involving almost two dozen researchers across the FSU campus and the FSU-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Albrecht-Schmitt made ...
Although berkelium was first synthesized over 60 years ago, its isotope is produced in such small amounts and remains stable for such a short time (less than a year) that its fundamental structure and properties are rarely studied. Producing Bk-249 is also a lengthy undertaking that includes many precise ...
Little has been known about berkelium's chemistry. The element with atomic number 97 is highly radioactive and its most common isotope has a half-life of only 330 days. Most of the few known berkelium compounds are trivalent (+3 oxidation state). The few +4 compounds are unstable and require strong ...

Using several spectroscopic techniques, scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) found that the element berkelium breaks form with its heavy element peers by taking on an extra positive charge when bound to a synthetic organic molecule.
Researchers at Florida State University discovered that berkelium (Bk), one of the few elements that have not yet been characterized in detail, unexpectedly lacks structural similarities as its lanthanide analog terbium (Tb). The goal of the study was to obtain crystals of two distinct berkelium compounds on ...
Discovery: Berkelium was first produced at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1949 by Stanley G. Thompson, Glenn T. Seaborg, Kenneth Street Jr. and Albert Ghiorso. Initial investigations were limited to tracer experiments (ion exchange and co-precipitation) but in 1952 experiments were initiated to ...
Brno, Czech Republic. Codasip has released the Bk5-64 Berkelium processor, the company's first 64-bit implementation of the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA). Bk5-64 processors are generated using the Codasip Studio customization tool that allows for fast core configuration and optimization.
It is not even The Daily Californian, nor is it the discovery of Berkelium and Californium (interesting that there is no Stanfordium). It is UC Berkeley Memes for Edgy Teens. The Clog (us!) My goodness, where would we be without the Clog? You're probably procrastinating right now reading this article. We bet ...

The theory of quantum mechanics delineates the expected chemical behavior of all atoms. However, a new study into berkelium demonstrates ...

ORNL had several roles in the discovery, the most prominent being production of the radioisotope berkelium-249 for the search.

UC Berkeley scientists have discovered six chemical elements in berkelium, californium, seaborgium, einsteinium, fermium, lawrencium.

First let me tell you something about the word ARE that you can astound your friends with. As you can see it has only one syllable.
ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor and adjoining Radiochemical Engineering Development Center(REDC), is the only facility in the world capable of producing the Berkelium-249 necessary for the experiment. Morgan was part of a small team of researchers ...
The only source of berkelium-249 is ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor and adjoining Radiochemical Engineering Development Center.
Researchers at Florida State University discovered that berkelium (Bk), one of the few elements that have not yet been characterized in detail, unexpectedly lacks structural similarities as its lanthanide analog terbium (Tb).
Um es zu erzeugen, haben sie Berkelium-Atomkerne (Element 97) mit Kalzium-Atomkernen (Element 20) beschossen. Dabei kam es zu einer Verschmelzung und ein neuer Atomkern, das Superschwergewicht 117, erblickte das Licht der Welt - wenn auch ...
In tennessine's case, the atomic recipe for element 117 required the berkelium-249 target, which was available only from ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), which produces radioisotopes for industry and medicine in addition to its neutron ...
Berkelium (Bk, Ordnungszahl 97) Berkelium wurde zu Ehren der University of Berkeley, einem Mitglied des Hochschulverbunds University of California, benannt. Es wurde im Dezember 1949 erstmals aus dem leichteren Element Americium erzeugt.
After six months of relentless bombardment with a calcium-48 beam, researchers had detected six atoms in which the nuclei of the calcium and berkelium had fused to create element 117. Subsequent experiments confirmed the results. "The discovery of ...
As an instrumental part of the element's discovery, ORNL assisted the Department of Energy's Isotope Program to produce the radioisotope berkelium-249 that was used in the initial discovery and confirmatory testing of tennessine, the release said.

Ever wondered how does each element on the periodic table works? While we are aware how common things like iron, carbon, and calcium function but what about some of the more underrated members of the periodic table?
A few elements have no current uses, such as protactinium and berkelium. The short-lived, man-made elements starting with einsteinium have no uses at the moment either, as they don't stick around long enough for scientists to experiment on them.
ICER RAIL: Knorr-Bremse announced on September 28 that it would buy out Berkelium Group's stake in the Pamplona-based braking materials manufacturing joint venture ICER Rail.
Just like with Oregon/Nebraska we have a near unanimous decision here. Berkelium is the lone guy going with BYU. Nik Jam: I think UCLA needs a good showing and will prove themselves Saturday.
In a series of carefully choreographed experiments both at his specialized lab and at the FSU-based National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Albrecht-Schmitt made a berkelium borate compound and a complex berkelium molecule in the form of crystals, and ...
There, Russian scientists smashed some isotopes of calcium into the berkelium - and out came the elusive element 117. It doesn't last very long - less than half a second.
