An alternative concept about the physical vacuum leads to unveiling the nuclear structures and subatomic particles as real entities of matter !

(Note: The building elements of the nuclear structures are shown by Symbols in order to simplify the drawings)

Instruction: Click on any element to view its nuclear configuration. Its structure appears in a new window together with the structures of its neighbors. So the structures of 103 elements are shown in 20 windows. Do not keep too many windows opened!

    The Periodic law of the elements is proposed by the great Russian scientist Dmitry Mendeleev in 1869. After considerable initial skepticism, the proposed law is universally accepted in 1871. Now, 130 years later, it becomes apparent (from the analysis in the BSM theory) that the Mendeleev's discovery is a signature of the building trend of the atomic nuclei. In any atomic nuclei the protons and neutrons appeared arranged in a strict spatial order. The distributed near field of the proton defines the position of the electronic orbital plane, while the orbital trace length is defined by the quantum conditions of the circling and oscillating electron. The spatial order of the protons and neutrons defines the orbital position of every electron. These hidden so far conditions are behind the selected wavefunctions used in the Quantum mechanical model of the atoms.

    The BSM concept of atomic nuclear structure additionally shows that the valence protons possess a limited angular freedom. This feature together with their spatial arrangement provides an explanation about the possible directions of the chemical bonds. This unveiled feature is in full agreement with the VSEPR model used in the structural chemistry.

    The physical model of the atoms opens a new horizon for the structural and bio-chemistry. The orientation of the orbital planes, defined by the nuclear configuration, allows a cascade energy flow through the long chain bio-molecules (see BSM_Application_3.pdf). Using the Atlas of ANS, the plane orientations of any possible quantum orbit can be identified, having in mind the shape of the protons and neutrons and their proximity fields.
