Database for Prompt Gamma-ray Neutron Activation Analysis

The database provides a variety of tables for all natural elements (from H to U) including 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. Neutron-capture prompt-gamma activation analysis (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.
