Special Issue Description

The process of radioactive decay is how an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy through radiation. A substance that has unstable nuclei is regarded as radioactive. Alpha decay, beta decay, and gamma decay are three of the most frequent kinds of decay, and they all entail the emission of one or more particles. Beta decay is a result of the weak force, while the nuclear force and electromagnetism are in charge of the other two mechanisms. Electron capture, which occurs when an unstable nucleus seizes an inner electron from one of the electron shells, is the fourth prevalent kind of decay. At the atomic level, radioactive decay is a stochastic process. No matter how long an atom has existed, quantum theory says it is impossible to forecast when an atom will decay. Radioactive atoms have a wide range of half-lives. At least one daughter radionuclide is created during the radioactive decay process, which is known as a parent radionuclide. The decay is a nuclear transmutation that produces a daughter with a different number of protons or neutrons, except gamma decay or internal conversion from a nuclear excited state. A characteristic of some forms of matter known as radioactivity is the spontaneous emission of energy and subatomic particles. In essence, it is a characteristic of particular atomic nuclei. An unstable nucleus will spontaneously decay, or change into a more stable structure, but this will only happen in a handful of specific ways by ejecting particular particles or kinds of electromagnetic radiation. Numerous naturally occurring elements and their synthetic isotopes both exhibit the property of radioactive decay. A sample’s Radioactivity can be determined by measuring the number of atoms that spontaneously decay per second. This can be accomplished with equipment made to identify the specific radiation type released with each “decay” or disintegration.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
