Abundance database

Post by tim.hbn » 19 Aug 2021, 23:22

Hi Everyone

Does anyone here know if there is a complete database on the Internet which gives both the natural and synthetic abundances of all radioisotopes?

I have done searches on Google and have only found databases that give natural abundances, not synthetic abundances.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

Tim

Hi Tim,

This is usually my go to database: http://nucleardata.nuclear.lu.se/toi/

This one and other useful links can be found on my links page here: https://www.gammaspectacular.com/blue/links

Wikipedia also has isotopic abundance information on pretty much any element, on the bottom of the table on the right, eg.:

The Wise Uranium Project has available several on-line calculators that may be of some use. When I was teaching a nuclear lab course at the Ohio State University's nuclear reactor we made use of the neutron activation calculator. For some labs I would take small samples of materials and subject these samples to a thermal neutron field to cause a particular activation reaction to occur. The decay of the activated material would present some interesting gamma spectra.

Following are links to the Wise Uranium Project set of calculators -

The neutron activation calculator tool is found at the link below -

The National Nuclear Data Center (NNDC) at the Brookhaven National Laboratory has cross section and other nuclear reaction data available -
