Qu. (from D. B. Garching, Germany):
Dear Nucleonica Team, if I let Ra-226 irradiate in a certain flux for a certain time, why I do not get nuclides with mass numbers higher than 226?

Ans. (Nucleonica Team)
This problem has now been resolved.

Results are shown below for an irradiation of Ra-226 (2g) in a dedicated facility with a thermal neutron flux of 2e14 neutrons per cm2 per s for a period of 100 days.
