Item description for Nuclides.net by Joseph Magill...
Nuclides.net describes an integrated environment for computations on radionuclides and their radiation. In addition to providing the necessary background on radionuclides and radiation, the accompanying CD-ROM, for Microsoft Windows operating systems, offers extensive information on the physics and radiology of familiar nuclides. Through an electronic nuclide chart, the user can access codes, via the Internet, for a number of applications which allow the required data to be computed quickly and reliably by means of interactive user guidance. Nuclides.net can be used for teaching, research, and for practical applications.

More About Joseph Magill
Dr. Joseph Magill is author of over 150 scientific papers and 20 patents and editor of the Institute Annual Reports. His most recent publication is a book on radionuclides: J. Magill, Nuclides.net: An Integrated Environment for Computations on Radionuclide and their Radiation, Springer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2003. (see www.nuclides.net for more details). Based on the above book, two-day nuclear education and training courses on Radioactivity, Radionuclides, and Radiation are organised and run by the author at regular intervals during the year. Since 1977, he has held a position as theoretical physicist with the Commission of the European Communities, Institute for Transuranium Elements, Karlsruhe, Germany. He is currently responsible for advanced nuclear fuel cycles. Dr. Magill is a member of the Technical Working group on ADS under the chairmanship of Prof. C. Rubbia and is one of the authors of the report: "A European Roadmap for Accelerator Driven Systems for Nuclear Waste Transmutation." He is currently the Commission representative in the TRADE (Triga Accelerator Driven Experiment) project and consultant to the IAEA in Vienna on Partitioning and Transmutation of Nuclear Waste. Recently, Dr. Magill has been involved in an international effort in so-called laser transmutations studies. These studies, which involve the giant pulse laser VULCAN (Rutherford Appleton Lab) and the high repetition rate Tabletop laser (Jena university), have led to the demonstration of laser induced fission in uranium and thorium for the first time. In the most recent experiments, Iodine-129 has been transmuted. These experiments have also potential medical applications. He is currently investigating howthis technology can be scaled for industrial scale nuclear waste transmutation.
Dr. Jean Galy, after his education in Physics and Neutron Physics in Marseille, France, made his PhD studies in Sweden, on the measurement of the fission products of 233U in a fast neutron flux. After a short stay at the CEA Cadarache, he joined the European Commission-Joint Research Centre at the Institute for Transuranium Elements, Kalrsruhe, Germany. Since 2000, he is there working as scientific officer on high intensity laser induced nuclear reaction studies and developing the Nuclides.net nuclear data and calculation internet based software. He has published about 10 scientific reviewed articles and more than 30 conference proceeding and peer reviewed reports.
