mirror nucleus

      atomic nucleus that contains a number of protons and a number of neutrons that are mutually interchanged in comparison with another nucleus. Thus, nitrogen-15, containing seven protons and eight neutrons, is the mirror nucleus of oxygen-15, comprising eight protons and seven neutrons. Study of mirror nuclei has aided in showing that the nuclear force binding protons and neutrons in the nucleus remains nearly the same when a neutron is replaced by a proton.
