Photon Dose Rate Constants++

Nucleonica - 1 March, 2017 - 11:27
The new Photon Dose Rate Constants++ application in Nucleonica allows the user to calculate the internationally accepted Ambient Dose Equivalent Rate Constants, Air Kerma Rate Constants, and Exposure Rate Constants for approximately 1500 gamma and x-ray emitting radionuclides. These quantities are useful for estimating the dose rates from point sources where attenuation and scattering in […]

Coincidence Summing Corrections++

Nucleonica - 24 February, 2017 - 16:34
True Coincidence Summation occurs when two gamma-rays are emitted during the same decay event of the nucleus, so that they appear to be emitted instantaneously. This seemingly instantaneous emission of separate gamma-rays is known as coincidence. In this situation the detector will see both of the gamma-ray energies as one larger energy deposited in the […]

Reduced Decay Schemes

Nucleonica - 23 February, 2017 - 16:28
The Reduced Decay Schemes is a new application for displaying the reduced decay schemes of selected nuclides. The nuclear data contained in the nuclide boxes (in the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart for example) is concise due to the very limited space available. In order to obtain maximum benefit from the nuclide chart, it is important to […]

Mass Activity Converter++

Nucleonica - 14 December, 2016 - 12:14
Nucleonica’s Mass Activity Converter has undergone a major revision. The new Mass Activity Converter++ has the following new and improved features: – The nuclide icon box at the top left of the page is based on a client side javascript function which creates the nuclide icon using SVG (scalable vector graphics). The information contained in […]

Decay Engine for Large Nuclide Sets, DELNuS++

Nucleonica - 14 December, 2016 - 12:14
Nucleonica’s Decay Engine for Large Nuclide Sets, DELNuS++, has been further updated. The application is particularly suitable for performing decay calculations with large numbers of nuclides (nuclide sets). It is also useful for investigating the radioactive decay of nuclides which undergo spontaneous fission (sf). The new application – DELNuS++ – has the following new and […]
