Database for Prompt Gamma-ray Neutron Activation Analysis

This database offers a variety of tables for all natural elements and includes the following data: isotopic composition, thermal radiative cross section (total and partial), Westcott g-factors, energy of the gamma rays (prompt and delayed), decay mode, half life and branching ratios.

The database helps improve the quality and quantity of data to make possible the reliable application of prompt-gamma activation analysis (PGAA) in such fields as materials science, geology, mining, archaeology, environment, food analysis and medicine. PGAA is particularly valuable as a non-destructive nuclear method in the measurement of elements that do not form neutron capture products with delayed gamma-ray emissions. Inaccurate and incomplete data have been a significant hindrance in the qualitative and quantitative analysis of complicated capture-gamma spectra by means of PGAA.
