Nuclear Data

Nuclear Data Program
• We evaluate the structure of groups of heavy nuclei with the same mass - "mass chains" - in continued support of the Evaluated Nuclear Structure Data File (ENSDF)

• We make critical assessments of the latest structure and reaction information to determine the best cross sections and thermonuclear rates for astrophysically important reactions

• We develop online software systems to expand the utilization of standardized databases by the nuclear physics and astrophysics communities

• We support the goals of the US Nuclear Data Program, centered at the National Nuclear Data Center at BNL
