The clustering of α particles in atomic nuclei results in the self-organization of various geometrical arrangements at the femtometer scale. The one-dimensional alignment of multiple α particles is known as linear-chain structure, evidence of which has been highly elusive. We show via resonant elastic and inelastic α scattering of a radioactive Be10 beam that excited states in the neutron-rich nucleus C14 agree with recent predictions of linear-chain structure based on an antisymmetrized...[Show more]
