How to Access the KNCO++
To use the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online, KNCO++ you need access to the Nucleonica nuclear science portal www.nucleonica.com. Here are some guidelines:
1. Go to the Nucleonica portal www.nucleonica.com with your internet browser.
-- we recommend Chrome and Firefox browsers. With the Internet Explorer browser only version IE9 has been tested.
2. Login with your username and password. If you do not have a Nucleonica account, you will need to first Register for Free access. Your login details (username and password) will automatically be sent to your email account.
3. If login is successful, you will land directly on the KNCO++ "App" Dashboard. The KNCO++ is the first application in the top line. Just click on this. Thereafter, the KNCO++ will be launched.
4. For further tips, just see KNCO++: "App" Interface below
Features of the new Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online, KNCO++
- Fully featured Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online, KNCO++, giving the latest new and updated experimental data for ground states and isomers
- Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online updated regularly
- Fast search and navigation through more than 4000 ground states and isomers in the Chart
- Access to earlier editions (8th Edition 2012, 7th Edition 2006)

KNCO++: "App" Interface
For users with access rights only to the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online++ (hereafter KNCO++) and not to the rest of Nucleonica - the start page is shown below. Users who also have access to Nucleonica (e.g. Premium access), this KNCO++ page appears after clicking on the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart link in the taskbar. This start page shows an "App" type interface with in total 12 icons. The top left icon is a direct linke to the KNCO++. The other icons are links to supporting applications.
Below the page title - Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart Online - there is a search box. The user can enter a character string here. On pressing the Return key, a full search of the Nucleonia wiki is made for this character string.

Clicking on the KNCO++ icon in the "App" interface described above will lead to the following window. Here the user will immediately recognise a section from the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart shown in the main panel. The nuclide box structure is the same as that given in the paper-based Charts.
The structure of the Navigation panel is shown in the figure.
- Zoom in, Zoom out
- Full Chart
With these icons, the user can zoom in or zoom out of a region in the chart. At any zoom level (beyond the initial level) the user can pan through the selected area by depressing the left mouse button and, holding this depressed, moving the mouse in any direction.
With this icon, the user restore the full chart.
Nuclide selector / expandable info panel
In the search box, typing in a chemical symbol, e.g. Co, will lead to a list of all cobalt isotopes in the drop-down menu. On selection of a particular isotope, this isotope is then shown in detail in the main window.
Authors & Affiliations
The Autohs check box leads to a list of authors and affiliations for the present version of the Karlsrhue Nuclide Chart.
From the drop-down menu, the user can select which edition to show in the main window. Currently, the 9th edition is under development. The previous 7th and 8th editions can also be selected. By ticking the check box "Difference", the user can see the differences between two editions. For example, with the edition 9 selected and the check box ticked, the differences between the 9th and 8th editions are shown highlighted in colour in the main window. In the Statistics drop-down menu, basic information is given on the total number of ground states and isomers etc.
An overview of the nuclide statistics for experimentally observed nuclides for the current and previous editions (8th edition, 2012; 7th edition 2006) is shown in the figure. It is of interest to note how the total number of nuclides (ground and metastable states) has increased since the 7th Edition 2006. The column new shows the total number of new nuclides in each edition. The column mod gives to total number of modified nuclides (includes new nuclides) in each edition. The column KNC gives the total number of ground states and metastable states in each edition. Also shown in the KNC column is the total number of elements and the total number of fission products included in each edition.
The colour sheme shown in the main Chart can be based on either the modes of radioactive decay or the half-lives.
The legend shows in more detail the particular colours used for decay modes or half-lives.
