Neutron flux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (305 words)
Neutron flux is the term applied to the measurement of neutrons passing though a given region of space.
A flow of neutrons is often used to initiate the fission of unstable large nuclei.
The flux shape is the term applied to the density or relative strength of the flux as it moves around the reactor.
Neutron star - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1568 words)
A newborn neutron star can rotate several times a second; sometimes, when they orbit a companion star and are able to accrete matter from it, they can increase this to several thousand times per second, distorting into an oblate spheroid shape despite their own immense gravity (an equatorial bulge).
Neutron stars may "pulse" due to particle acceleration near the magnetic poles, which are not aligned with the rotation axis of the star.
Although a neutron star could logically be classed as an exotic atom, since the bulk of the star is one huge atomic nucleus and electrical neutrality forces it to have a thin shell of electrons surrounding it, it is generally more useful to consider such objects as stars.
