PhD candidate Cebo Ngwetsheni wins SAIP honour
Cebo Ngwetsheni, a PhD candidate at UWC, has become the sole winner for the best PhD Oral Presentation at the South African Institute of Physics (SAIP) in the category of Nuclear, Particle and Radiation Physics.

Ngwetsheni presented the highest statistics measurement of the spectroscopic quadrupole moment of the 12C nucleus carried out in Munich, Germany, as part of his PhD work, where he uncovered that the nucleus of life has a more pronounced oblate deformation (or lentil shape) than expected by modern theory.
