Title: Evaluated decay data for 206TI.

Abstract

Evaluated decay data for the {sup 206}Tl nuclide are presented, including recommended values for the half-life, {beta}- and {gamma}-ray emission energies and probabilities. Data on X-ray radiations, Auger and conversion electron energies and emission probabilities are also tabulated. Carefully evaluated data for radioactive nuclides refer to complex nuclear level schemes and tables of numerical values, which quantify fundamental nuclear structure information such as level energies and quantum numbers, lifetimes, decay modes, and other associated properties. These data are not only at the core of basic nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics research, but they are also relevant to many applied technologies, including nuclear energy production, reactor design and safety, medical diagnostic and radiotherapy, health physics, environmental research and monitoring, safeguards and material analysis. The evaluation process results in numerous sets of recommended values on half-lives, radiation energies and emission probabilities. The work on evaluation of decay properties of {sup 206}Tl was completed in September 2006 with a literature cut off by the same date. The Saisinuc software (2002BeXX) and associated supporting programs were used in assembling the data following the established protocol within the International Decay Data Evaluation Project (DDEP) collaboration.

  • The Nuclear Data and Measurement Series document results of studies in the field of microscopic nuclear data. The primary objective is the dissemination of information in the comprehensive form required for nuclear technology applications. This Series is devoted to: (a) measured microscopic nuclear parameters, (b) experimental techniques and facilities employed in measurements, (c) the analysis, correlation and interpretation of nuclear data, and (d) the compilation and evaluation of nuclear data. Contributions to this Series are reviewed to assure technical competence and, unless otherwise stated, the contents can be formally referenced. This Series does not supplant formal journal publication, but itmore » does provide the more extensive information required for technological applications (e.g., tabulated numerical data) in a timely manner.« less
  • Graphical comparisons of recently obtained experimental beta-ray spectra with predicted beta-ray spectra based on the Evaluated Nuclear Structure Data File are exhibited for 77 fission products having masses 79--99 and 130--146 and lifetimes between 0.17 and 23650 sec. The comparisons range from very poor to excellent. For beta decay of 47 nuclides, estimates are made of ground-state transition intensities. For 14 cases the value in ENSDF gives results in very good agreement with the experimental data. 12 refs., 77 figs., 1 tab.
  • Over the past five years, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has published extensive compilations derived from three of its main atomic data libraries. These are specifically the evaluated atomic relaxation data library, EADL, the evaluated electron interaction data library, EEDL, and the evaluated photon interaction data library, EPDL. All of these libraries span atomic numbers, Z, from 1 to 100. Additionally the particle interaction libraries cover the incident particle energy range from 10 eV to 100 GeV. The purpose of these libraries is to furnish data for particle transport calculations. Thus the files have been released for external distribution in amore » machine independent characterize format. In a complete coupled electron-photon transport analysis, results from all three of the data files are required. Therefore it is reasonable to discuss the format for all three libraries in the same work; that is the approach taken here. This report is composed of three sections, each section describing one of the libraries. For ease of reading, each section is separate and unique unto itself, including its own table numbers and references. This report will accompany any request for copies of these evaluated data libraries. This report and these three data libraries are available from the data centers at Brookhaven National Laboratory, RSIC (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), OECD/NEA Data Bank (France), and IAEA (Vienna).« less
