Introduction: Porous silicon (PSi) nanoparticles are capable of delivering therapeutic payloads providing targeted delivery and sustained release of the payloads. In this work we describe the development and proof-of-concept in vivo evaluation of thermally hydrocarbonized porous silicon (PSi) nanoparticles that are implanted with radioactive $^{155}$Tb atoms and coated with red blood cell (RBC) membrane ($^{155}$Tb-THCPSi).

Mass measurements of $^{99-101}$In challenge ab initio nuclear theory of the nuclide $^{100}$Sn / Mougeot, M. (Heidelberg, Max Planck Inst. ; CERN) ; Atanasov, D. (CERN) ; Karthein, J. (Heidelberg, Max Planck Inst. ; CERN) ; Wolf, R.N. (Sydney U.) ; Ascher, P. (CENBG, Gradignan) ; Blaum, K. (Heidelberg, Max Planck Inst.) ; Chrysalidis, K. (CERN) ; Hagen, G. (Tennessee U. ; Oak Ridge) ; Holt, J.D. (TRIUMF ; McGill U.) ; Huang, W.J. (Heidelberg, Max Planck Inst.) et al.
$^{100}$Sn is of singular interest for nuclear structure. Its closed-shell proton and neutron configuration exhibit exceptional binding and $^{100}$Sn is the heaviest nucleus comprising protons and neutrons in equal number, a feature that enhances the contribution of the short-range, proton-neutron pairing interaction and strongly influences its decay via the weak interaction.

Ca$_3$Mn$_2$O$_7$ structural path unraveled by atomic-scale properties: A combined experimental and ab initio study / Rocha-Rodrigues, P (Porto U.) ; Santos, S S M (Porto U.) ; Miranda, I P (Sao Paulo U.) ; Oliveira, G N P (Porto U.) ; Correia, J G (Lisbon, IST) ; Assali, L V C (Sao Paulo U.) ; Petrilli, H M (Sao Paulo U.) ; Araújo, J P (Porto U.) ; Lopes, A M L (Porto U.)
The structural phase transition path from the low-temperature polar structure up to the highest symmetric phase in the hybrid improper ferroelectric Ca$_3$Mn$_2$O$_7$ compound is here investigated at atomic scale. Measurements using the perturbed angular correlation local probe technique are combined with ab initio electronic structure calculations to observe the evolution of the electric field gradient parameters at the Ca site within the 10–1200 K temperature range.

The performance of TiO$_2$-based materials is highly dependent on the electronic structure and local defect configurations. Hence, a thorough understanding of defect interaction plays a key role. [...]

Ca$_2$MnO$_4$ structural path: Following the negative thermal expansion at the local scale / Rocha-Rodrigues, Pedro (Porto U.) ; Santos, Samuel S M (Porto U.) ; Oliveira, Gonçalo N P (Porto U.) ; Leal, Tiago (Porto U.) ; Miranda, Ivan P (Sao Paulo U.) ; dos Santos, António M (ORNL, Oak Ridge (main)) ; Correia, João G (Lisbon, IST) ; Assali, Lucy V C (Sao Paulo U.) ; Petrilli, Helena M (Sao Paulo U.) ; Araújo, João P (Porto U.) et al.
The oxygen octahedral rotations in Ca$_2$MnO$_4$, the first member of the $\textrm{Ca O ( CaMnO}_3)_n$ Ruddlesden-Popper family, is probed through a set of complementary techniques, including temperature-dependent neutron and x-ray diffraction, combined with local probe studies and ab initio calculations. Here we demonstrate the enhancement of the uniaxial negative thermal expansion coefficient from $-1.26 \pm 0.25$ to $-21 \pm 1.8$ ppm/K at the second order $I4_1/acd$ to $I4/mmm$ structural phase transition, providing direct evidence for the corkscrew atomic mechanism.

Branching ratio of the super-allowed $\beta$ decay of $^{10}$C / Blank, B. (CENBG, Gradignan) ; Aouadi, M. (CENBG, Gradignan) ; Ascher, P. (CENBG, Gradignan) ; Gerbaux, M.

(Guelph U.) et al.
In an experiment performed at the ISOLDE facility of CERN, the super-allowed beta-decay branching ratio of 10C was determined with a high-precision single-crystal germanium detector. In order to evaluate the contribution of the pile-up of two 511 keV gamma quanta to one of the gamma-ray peaks of interest at 1021.7 keV, data were not only taken with 10C, but also with a 19Ne beam.

TDPAC Studies of Local Defects and Phenomena in Ferroics and Multiferroics / Schell, Juliana (CERN ; Duisburg-Essen U.) ; Marschick, Georg (CERN ; TU Vienna)
We provide an overview of time-differential perturbed angular correlation (TDPAC) measurements of ferroic and multiferroic materials. Here, we explore chalcogenide spinels, lead titanate, lead zirconate, and bismuth ferrite, describing the use of TDPAC experiments to probe the physics of localized defects and the various mechanisms that govern electronic and magnetic interactions, the coupling of the associated degrees of freedom, and the structural, charge, and orbital correlations for these materials..

Laser-assisted nuclear decay spectroscopy of $^{176,177,179}$Au / Harding, R D (York U., England ; CERN) ; Andreyev, A N (York U., England ; JAERI, Tokai) ; Barzakh, A E (St. Petersburg, INP) ; Cubiss, J G (York U., England) ; Van Duppen, P (Leuven U.) ; Al Monthery, M (York U., England) ; Althubiti, N A (Manchester U.) ; Andel, B (Leuven U. ; Comenius U.) ; Antalic, S (Comenius U.) ; Cocolios, T E (Leuven U. ; Manchester U.) et al.
A study of the laser-ionized and mass-separated neutron-deficient isotopes $^{176,177,179}$Au was performed using the Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source and the Windmill detection setup at ISOLDE, CERN. New and improved data on complex fine-structure α decays of the three isotopes were deduced, providing insight into the low-lying levels in the daughter nuclei $^{172,173,175}$Ir. [...]

Low-spin states in $^{80}$Ge populated in the $\beta$ decay of the $^{80}$Ga $3^-$ isomer / Sekal, S (Algiers U. Sci.

Lab.) et al.
The structure of  $^{80}$Ge has been investigated at the ISOLDE facility at CERN. A previous study reported for the first time a low-lying $0^+_2$ intruder state at 639 keV, based on the coincidence with a previously unobserved 1764-keV $γ$ ray, and suggested it as evidence for shape coexistence in $^{80}$Ge.
