Updated nuclide chart – Enhanced knowledge of the elements' radioactivity

An updated edition of the "Karlsruhe nuclide chart" has been published today by the Joint Research Centre's Institute for Transuranium Elements (JRC-ITU). This chart is an extended periodic table of the elements displaying all known atoms of any element and their radioactive data. The 8th edition contains new and updated radioactive decay data on 737 nuclides not available in the previous edition, dating from 2007. In total, nuclear data on 3847 nuclides are presented. An explanatory booklet is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian. This publication supports the JRC's particular focus on the education and training of present and future scientists and engineers in the nuclear domain, as demanded by the Euratom Treaty.
