3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The Nuclide Explorer (NKE) program is a tool for retrieving interactively detailed data on radionuclides properties.
The data that can be retrieved are:
a) elements information (average mass, density, neutron cross sections);
b) nuclear ground/metastable states properties (half-life and decay channels percentage);
c) decay alpha, beta, gamma, electron, positron radiation information (spectra and lines);
d) fission products yields (for various fissionable target nuclides);
e) thermal neutron cross sections and resonance integrals (capture and fission);
f) fission spectrum average threshold neutron reactions cross sections for (n,p), (n,alpha), (n,2n), (n,n') and (n,gamma) reactions.

Fast neutron fission has been added.

It  contains data on more than 3000 nuclides (approximately 3700 ground and metastable states). The data were mined from various public data bases.

4. METHODS

Users interact with the main program screen which is Segre nuclide chart to obtain detailed nuclide/element information. It contains a built-in decay calculator and filter utility. For instance users can filter data using various criteria (e.g. half-life, decay modes and particles energies).
