3. Correlation Plot:

Please select range for nucleon number, if left blank, all available data will be plotted

Proton Range: 2 ≤ to ≤ 120 ,  Neutron Range: 2 ≤ to ≤ 300 ,  Mass Range: 4 ≤ to ≤ 420

Size of Points:

  • To zoom in, left click and drag over the desired area.
  • To add/remove results for a given model, click on its name in the legend.
  • To save this graph, click on the icon in the upper right hand corner.

4. Separation Energy Plot:

  • The points indicate the proton and neutron numbers where the separation energy equals the selected value (rounded to the nearest even integer).
  • The lines between points are just to connect them; they contain no information.
  • The drip lines shown are the proton and neutron numbers averaged over all 6 models where the two-nucleon separation energies are zero.
  • Such a plot is valuable in learning about the astrophysical r and rp processes, which are expected to occur along trajectories of constant separation energy.

S2p= MeV, S2n= MeV

  • To zoom in, left click and drag over the desired area.
  • To add/remove results for a given model, click on its name in the legend.
  • To save this graph, click on the icon in the upper right hand corner.

5. 3D Quadrupole Deformation Plot:

  • This 3D plot is supported by all browsers.
  • For Google Chrome and Safari web browsers:
    • To rotate the graph, left click and drag any point on the black screen or the graph itself (all rotation is about the center).
    • To zoom in/out, hold 'Shift' and drag the mouse up/down.
    • Hover mouse on nucleus for β2 value.
  • Note: unlike the two above, this graph cannot be exported.
