Nuclear Thermodynamics of the Heaviest Elements. II

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The masses of the isotopes of the heaviest elements have been calculated from known decay data in the region, extended by means of decay energies calculated from closed decay-energy cycles and estimated from the systematics of alpha and beta decay energies. The absolute values of the masses are based on the mass-spectrometrically determined mass of Pb{sup 208} and a few measured neutron binding energies. The half-life systematics of alpha decay and spontaneous fission are also presented, and some predictions of the properties of as yet undiscovered nuclides are made.
