What is TALYS?

TALYS is software for the simulation of nuclear reactions. Many state-of-the-art nuclear models are included to cover all main reaction mechanisms encountered in light particle-induced nuclear reactions. TALYS provides a complete description of all reaction channels and observables, and is user-friendly.

TALYS is a versatile tool to analyse basic microscopic experiments and to generate nuclear data for applications.

TALYS is created at NRG in Petten, the Netherlands, and CEA in Bruyères-le-Châtel, France, and is available free of charge.
