Nucleonica Training Course, CERN, 16-17 April 2018

April 20th, 2018

Introduction to Nucleonica: Core Applications and Tools, 16-17 April, CERN, Switzerland, 2018.
This 2-day course focused mainly on the Nucleonica core applications with emphasis on Case Studies. A detailed description of nuclear data with particular reference to the various Nucleonica nuclear databases was given. Core applications were demonstrated through the use of the Radiological Converter, Nuclide Mixtures, Decay Engine++, and Dosimetry and Shielding H*(10). The new e-Learning centre to support the Nucleonica applications was described.
IMG_20180416_144805 A key lecture with exercises was given by Mr. Yann Donjoux (CERN) on the e-Ship++ radiological transport assistant application in Nucleonica.
A special session was devoted to gamma spectrometry tools including the Gamma Spectrum Generator, Gamma Library, Cambio and WESPA. The latter tools (Cambio and WESPA) were used for the identification nuclear and radioactive materials.
In total, 11 persons took part in the course from CERN.
Speakers included Mr. Y. Donjoux (CERN) in addition to Dr. J. Magill and Mr. R. Dreher from the Nucleonica team.

New e-Learning Training Centre for Nucleonica Applications

April 3rd, 2018

A new eLearning training centre has been created to assist users to become familiar with the most important features of the Nucleonica applications. The eLearning centre can be used directly in “live” dedicated training courses for organisations or independently as “self-learning” modules in Nucleonica. The eLearning centre consists of the following online “training courses”:
– 1-day training course; – 2-day training course;
– Advanced course; – Nuclear security exercises (restricted)
In addition, presentations for individual applications are also available.

The training materials consist of online “slides” for each application including:
1. Title, 2. Contents, 3. Description of the main features, 4. Summary,
5. Exercises (with answers), 6. Additional files for use with the Exercises
In contrast to the wiki, which provides a full comprehensive technical documentation of each application, the eLearning centre focuses more on the main features of the application and usability, together with exercises (with answers).

Half-lives of the nuclides Rh-102 and Rh-102m

March 13th, 2018

Qu. (from M. D. KTE Karlsruhe): In using the platform Nucleonica I found some inconsistent data. The half-lives of the nuclides Rh-102 and Rh-102m are not the same in the different specified databases. The half-lives of Rh-102 and Rh-102m seem to be inverted at „JEFF-3.1“ in comparison to „ENDF/B-VII.1“ or „Nubase 2012“. Do you have information which the correct data for these two nuclides are?

Ans. (Nucleonica Team): The most relevant information on the radionuclide Rh-102, 102m half-lives can be found in the paper: M. Shibata et al. Applied Radiation and Isotopes Volume 49, Issue 12, 1 December 1998, Pages 1481-1487
Beta-decay half-lives and level ordering of Rh-102m,g. link
Citation from the abstract of this paper: Beta-decay half-lives of the ground state and an isomer of Rh-102 have been determined 207.3(17) d and 3.742(10) y, respectively, by γ-ray decay curves following each β-decay. It has been found that a state (2−) which has a shorter half-life (207.3 d) is the ground state from the result that the half-life of the 41.9 keV isomeric γ-transition was equal to 3.742 y. It has also been confirmed that the 41.9 keV transition is certainly an isomeric transition with X–γ coincidence measurement.

Rh-102The data for Rh-102 in the new 10th Edition of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart, 2018.
The data in Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart 10th edition, recent NUBASE file and ENSDF are based on this research. In JEFF3.1 the ground and metastable states were allocated incorrectly. We recommend to use the latest information based on the above mentioned research and summarised in the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart as shown in the figure.

Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online Shop

February 12th, 2018

A new online shop for the purchase of printed versions of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart is available at http://nuklide.shop.
KNC10-OnlineShop2A nuclide chart is a two dimensional representation of the nuclear and radioactive properties of all known atoms. A nuclide is the generic name for atoms characterized by the constituent protons and neutrons. In contrast to the periodic table which is based on chemical behaviour, the nuclide chart arranges nuclides according to the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. Each nuclide in the chart is represented by a box containing the element symbol and mass number, natural abundance, half-life, decay types and decay energies. The nuclides boxes are coloured according to their decay properties. Nuclear isomers, or excited states, can be represented by sub-dividing the box accordingly.
The new edition of the “Karlsruher Nuklidkarte” contains radioactive decay data on 696 nuclides (47 new nuclides) not found in the previous edition. In total, nuclear data on 4040 experimentally observed ground states and isomers are presented. Although many nuclear data sources are available on the internet, the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart provides a unique overview of current knowledge and is for many the preferred medium for ease of use, convenience and practicality. This new 10th edition coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart which first appeared in 1958.
