IAEA Photonuclear Data Library

The library contains recommended evaluated photonuclear data for 164 isotopes for incident photons (gamma rays) with energies mostly up to 140 MeV. The library includes cross sections and emission spectra in the ENDF-6 format and it is suitable for Monte Carlo transport calculations.
A list of corrections introduced by the Nuclear Data Section, as well as a list of errors that, for the time being, remain in the files, is given.
The results of test calculations with the library are presented here.
A hardcopy in draft form, entitled "Handbook on photonuclear data for applications: Cross sections and spectra", is available (March 2000, 274 pages).
