Reduced Decay Schemes

February 23rd, 2017

The Reduced Decay Schemes is a new application for displaying the reduced decay schemes of selected nuclides.
The nuclear data contained in the nuclide boxes (in the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart for example) is concise due to the very limited space available. In order to obtain maximum benefit from the nuclide chart, it is important to know how to interpret the box contents correctly. In the new application, the contents of the nuclide boxes are explained in detail by making reference to the nuclide reduced decay scheme in order to relate the box contents with information on energies of emitted particles with the energy levels in the nucleus in the decay scheme diagram. Additional data has been taken from the Nuclear Data Sheets and Nucleonica’s Datasheets.
RDS_K42 To improve understanding, some transitions not mentioned in the box are added and indicated as dotted lines. Corresponding data is also indicated in grey. Radiations with a low emission probability indicated by dots or brackets in the nuclide box are also drawn with dotted lines.
Additionally a gamma spectrum of the particular nuclide is shown (generated by Nucleonica’s Gamma Spectrum Generator application).
