[en] The Table of Superdeformed Nuclear Bands and Fission Isomers contains all experimental data on the nuclear structure of superdeformed bands published through October, 2002. Level schemes, moment of inertia plots, and data tables are presented. A complete reference list is provided
[en] -- Abstract: Evaluated spectroscopic data and level schemes from radioactive decay and nuclear reaction studies are presented for 59Sc, 59Ti, 59V, 59Cr, 59Mn, 59Fe, 59Co, 59Ni, 59Cu, 59Zn, 59Ga, and 59Ge. This evaluation for A=59 supersedes the earlier one by C. M. Baglin (2002Ba42) and updates for some nuclides in the ENSDF database. Highlights: of this evaluation are the following: In 59Fe, a new level at 568.45 keV (3/2−) has been added. This resolves a doublet at 570 keV, which was reflected in earlier evaluations (1983An22, 1993Ba85, 2002Ba42) and literature as well. Conflicting spin assignments for 2153.62 keV level of 59Co [9/2,13/2 in (α,pγ); (13/2) in (15N,4nγ); 15/2 in (p,p′γ), (7/2−) in (n,n′γ)] exist in the literature and additional experimental work is needed to resolve the issue.
[en] Nuclear structure data pertaining to all nuclei with mass number A=170 have been evaluated, and incorporated into the ENSDF data file. This evaluation supersedes the previous evaluation (Coral M. Baglin), Nuclear Data Sheets 96, 611 (2002), (cutoff date 15 August 2002) and subsequent updates of the ENSDF file for Yb to Dy (cutoff 15 April 2010), Lu (cutoff 8 October 1998), Pt (cutoff 17 February 1999) and Ta, Os (cutoff 7 April 1998). Since the previous evaluation, 170Gd has been observed and the ground state T1/2 measured. New excited states have also been observed in the neutron rich 170Dy. The ground state T1/2 of 170Tb has been determined, however, there are currently still no excited states observed in this nucleus. There remains some uncertainty in the ground state and longer-lived isomer in 170Ir which could warrent further experimental investigation.
[en] Isobaric analog states (IAS) can be used to estimate the masses of members belonging to the same isospin multiplet. Experimental and estimated IAS have been used frequently within the Atomic Mass Evaluation (AME) in the past, but the associated set of evaluated masses have been published for the first time in AME2012 and NUBASE2012. In this paper the current trends of the isobaric multiplet mass equation (IMME) coefficients are shown. The T = 2 multiplet is used as a detailed illustration
[en] In nuclear reactors, a large number of antineutrinos are generated in the decay chains of the fission products; thus a survey of the antineutrino flux could provide valuable information related to the uranium and plutonium content of the core. This application generated interest by the IAEA in using antineutrino detectors as a potential safeguard tool. Here we present the Nucifer experiment, developed in France, by CEA and CNRS/IN2P3. The design of this new antineutrino detector has focused on safety, size reduction, reliability and high detection efficiency with a good background rejection. The Nucifer detector is currently taking data at the OSIRIS research reactor, inside CEA-Saclay. Presently, the ongoing analyses are considering the main sources of background for the antineutrino detection; the first antineutrino result is expected in 2013. A possible contribution to the understanding of the so called “reactor antineutrino anomaly” is also discussed. Finally, we present a brief description of the proposed experiments at very short baselines (VSBL) from reactors in France
[en] The Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) were inaugurated in 2002 by the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U. S. Department of Energy. The purpose is to enhance connections between NNSA laboratories and the activities of university scientists and their students in research areas important to NNSA, including low-energy nuclear science. This paper highlights some of the ways that the SSAA fosters education and training of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in low-energy nuclear science, preparing them for careers in fundamental and applied research and development
[en] The development of a curriculum for nuclear materials courses targeting students pursuing Master of Arts degrees at The George Washington University is described. The courses include basic concepts such as radiation and radioactivity as well as more complex topics such the nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear weapons, radiation detection and technological aspects of non-proliferation
