Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO++) Revisited

August 22nd, 2017

The Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO++) has been upgraded to provide the following new features:
– The colours used in the KNCO++ have been historically based on the modes of decay. A new colour scheme has been introduced which shows, in addition, the half-lives of the nuclides. The user can toggle between the decay modes and half-lives charts to obtain the complimentary Chart views.

– The user can now select various pre-defined background colours to enhance the visual impact of the Chart.
– When the mouse cursor is placed over a nuclide, the nuclide box is highlighted and magnified (see example of U-238 above). On clicking on the highlighted nuclide, the Chart is zoomed to the nuclide selected thus provided a useful navigation tool.
– Literature references for the nuclide data are now availabe. A mouse right click on a nuclide opens a context menu from which a link to the references can be selected.

Virtual Cloud Chamber revisited

August 7th, 2017

The Virtual Cloud Chamber has been updated. The previously used Cortona VRML plugin viewer used to view the GEANT4 3D simulations is no longer supported by modern browsers and has been discarded. In its place, the VMRL WRL files are now converted from WRL to X3D HTML format using a tool from InstantReality. A major advantage is that the converted files can now be shown directly in the browser – without the use of a plugin.

Animations can also be generated by the Virtual Cloud Chamber but these cannot currently be shown directly in the browser. To view the 3d animations, the user should download the Instant Reality player (instantplayer) for this purpose.
