This script generates plots and tables representing products of nuclear reactions, along with elastic and inelastic scattering processes using relativistic kinematics. Enter the particles or nuclei involved, the kinetic energy of the projectile, any excitation energy of the products and select the desired output. The plots and tables created will be shown at the bottom of the page.
Enter Isotopes (AEl) or Masses (AMU or MeV). Isotopes should be of form 1H, 4He, 16O ... etc, case insensitive; n, p, d, t, h, a, g, e (or e-) and e+ are also accepted as shorthand for neutron, proton, deuteron, triton, 3He, alpha, gamma, electron and positron. Shorthand is also available for particles via pi+, pi-, pi0, rho+, rho-, rho0, k+, k-, k0, mu, mu+, mu-, tau, tau+ and tau-. More could be added by request. Isotope masses are taken from the table of atomic masses, mass.mas114, with Zme subtracted.
For an explanation of the calculations, see Relativistic Reaction Kinematics
Please do not hesitate to send an email with any feedback; constructive suggestions to my liking will be implemented.
