Welcome to the Nucleonica Wiki!
The Nucleonica wiki is an open knowledge resource for the nuclear sciences. In contrast to Wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone, the Nucleonica wiki articles are written by experts and practitioners in the field and cannot be edited. The Nucleonica wiki is devoted specifically to nuclear science. Wiki technology is best suited for this purpose since it allows addition of content at any time from any location.
Another aim the Nucleonica wiki is to provide the technical documentation in support of the Nucleonica nuclear science portal www.nucleonica.com. Whereas the Nucleonica portal requires registration to access its applications and data pages, the wiki is an "open" knowledge resource.
How this Wiki is organized
The Sidebar panel to the left of this window provides quick links to a number of important pages in this wiki. The links are grouped under:
The Wiki contains a collection of articles. Each article has a title (by which it is referenced) and optionally one or more categories. Under Special / Categories you can see all currently existing categories. Thus, it is possible to navigate through all documents by the category and subcategory tree feature of the Wiki.
Of special importance is the Help link. This page contains a collection of articles and is used specifically to support the Nucleonica applications and nuclear data pages. For users logged into the Nucleonica Portal, the context sensitive Help in Nucleonica will lead the user to the corresponding page in the wiki.
Another important item is the Search box. By entering a character string here, the entire wiki is searched. The search results are structured in a coherent way. Enter a piece of text into the Search box (e.g. Curie) and try out this powerful search tool!
What is Nucleonica?
Nucleonica is a nuclear science internet portal (www.nucleonica.com) specialising in providing user-friendly access to the latest internationally evaluated nuclear data together with a range of validated, web-based nuclear science applications. The portal is aimed at professionals in the nuclear domain. In addition, it is also particularly suitable for education and training of young scientists, engineers and technicians. Our applications enable researchers and specialists to make complex and precise calculations in state-of-the-art fashion.
Nucleonica GmbH is a “spin-off” from the European Commission’s Institute for Transuranium Elements. The company started operations in early 2011 and is based in Karlsruhe, Germany. The company founder and CEO is Dr. Joseph Magill. The mission of Nucleonica is to become the leading interent resource in the nuclear sciences. The company also offers a range of introductory and advanced training courses in various areas of nuclear science.
In the field of nuclear knowledge management, Nucleonica is an innovative resource for knowledge creation and competence building for the worldwide nuclear science community Reference.
Nucleonica has recently been endorsed by the SNETP: ‘Nucleonica plays … an important role in making nuclear education more attractive and in building nuclear knowledge for a new generation of engineers and scientists’ Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (www.snetp.eu)
