Exemption & Authorisation Limits

Nucleonica - 20 February, 2018 - 18:10
Based on the recently released Swiss RPO data (January 2018), this new Nucleonica application provides data on exemption and authorisation limits for radioactive materials. Based on assessment values for dose coefficients for ingestion and inhalation, together with specific dose rates at various tissue depths for external radiation (h10, h0.07, and hc,0.07), values are given for […]

CoReT: Concept Repository Temperatures

Nucleonica - 18 December, 2017 - 17:20
The disposal of high-level radioactive waste in deep geological repositories requires stable and foreseeable physical conditions over very long time scales. During this period, the chemical stability of both the natural and the engineered barriers is governed by thermally activated processes. These in turn are driven by the heat pulse generated by the nuclear decay […]

Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO++) Revisited

Nucleonica - 18 December, 2017 - 17:20
The Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online (KNCO++) has been upgraded to provide the following new features: – The colours used in the KNCO++ have been historically based on the modes of decay. A new colour scheme has been introduced which shows, in addition, the half-lives of the nuclides. The user can toggle between the decay modes […]

Virtual Cloud Chamber revisited

Nucleonica - 30 November, 2017 - 04:47
The Virtual Cloud Chamber has been updated. The previously used Cortona VRML plugin viewer used to view the GEANT4 3D simulations is no longer supported by modern browsers and has been discarded. In its place, the VMRL WRL files are now converted from WRL to X3D HTML format using a tool from InstantReality. A major […]

Problem with the decay chain of Pu-244 and the JEFF database

Nucleonica - 30 November, 2017 - 04:47
Qu.(from M.R. KTE Karlsruhe): We encountered a problem while reproducing the decay chain of Pu-244. The first decay is an α-decay to U-240 followed by a β-decay to Np-240. The question is if U-240 decays to the metastable or directly to the ground state of Np-240. In the universal nuclide chart application in Nucleonica it […]
