Definition of "Radionuclide"

Last modified: 16 days



Radionuclide (aka radioactive nuclide, radioisotope, radioactive isotope) is an atom that has excess nuclear energy, making it unstable. This excess energy can either create and emit, from the nucleus, new radiation (gamma radiation), or a new particle (alpha or beta particle), or transfer this excess energy to 1 of its electrons, causing it to be ejected (conversion electron).
