An essential requisite for an efficient production of short-lived nuclei in an Isotope Separation On-Line (ISOL) facility is the fast release and extraction of the radioactive isotopes. In order to control the variables affecting the design and development of the target matrices and ion-sources, a database management system, called DifEfIsol, containing the relevant information of this diffusion-effusion process has been built. The Oracle database is constructed within an Open-URL framework directly reachable from any Web-browser at The database includes the diffusion and desorption data of most elements in a range of materials. About 2400 entries are presently stored in the database. These data are used as input to a Monte Carlo simulation program that presently is being tested. This paper presents the database and the Web application as a tool for diffusion-effusion studies.
