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.
