Title: The AME2016 atomic mass evaluation (II). Tables, graphs and references

Abstract

This paper is the second part of the new evaluation of atomic masses, Ame2016. Using least-squares adjustments to all evaluated and accepted experimental data, described in Part I, we derive tables with numerical values and graphs to replace those given in Ame2012. The first table lists the recommended atomic mass values and their uncertainties. It is followed by a table of the influences of data on primary nuclides, a table of various reaction and decay energies, and finally, a series of graphs of separation and decay energies. The last section of this paper lists all references of the input data used in the Ame2016 and the Nubase2016 evaluations (first paper in this issue). Amdc: http://amdc.impcas.ac.cn/

  • The new evaluation of the Atomic Masses, Ame2012, has just been released. It represents a major step in the history of the 60 year old Atomic Mass Evaluation based on the method developed by Wapstra. This new publication includes all material available to date. Some of the policies and procedures used in our evaluation are reported, together with an illustration of one specially difficult case, the energy available for the {sup 102}Pd double-electron capture. The observation of the mass surface reveals many important new features. We illustrate this statement by the double magicity of {sup 270}Hs at N = 162more » and Z = 108.« less
  • The ''interim'' evaluation of experimental atomic masses presented was prepared so that an up-to-date set of experimental values might be provided with which to compare results. This set of some 1300 values, listed in the main table of this issue, is a revision of the 1971 Atomic Mass Evaluation made in the light of recent results, but does not constitute a new analysis of comparable carefulness. Such an analysis, with listing of input data, will be published within the next year.
  • For twelve carefully selected particle combinations and reactions, the accompanying table gives values and their estimated precision for the separation energies and reaction energies, respectively. These data are derived from a least-squares evaluation of all available experimental data. The way is indicated in which many more reaction energy values can be derived from the given data.
