The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) Task Group on Fundamental Constants have issued a new 2010 update on the fundamental constants. The last update we used for the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart and for Nucleonica was from 2005 (P. J. Mohr and B. N. Taylor, Rev. Mod. Phys. 77, 1 (2005). We are currently updating the Chart and Nucleonica with these most recent values.

Nucleonica team presentation at “Kerntechnik am KIT” exhibition

July 6th, 2011

Once again the Nucleonica Web Portal and the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart were presented to the students starting their Master degree courses at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) at the Institute exhibition of Fakultät für Maschinenbau. Both products will be exhibited along with presentations from eight different research institutes involved in nuclear science.
The purpose of this event is to give the students information on trainee positions, research fellowships, etc. and provide an overview of research activities in the field of nuclear science. This is a good opportunity for Nucleonica team to present itself to the students and to demonstrate a research approach based on the modelling and computing.

Nucleonica’s Decay Engine now with Date Calculator

July 2nd, 2011

Following requests from our users, we have added the possibility to enter the decay time in the Decay Engine in Date format. This is very useful for example for calculations for standards. One just enters the date on the certificate and the Decay Engine returns the present activity, mass etc. as shown in the figure below.
