RSICC DATA PACKAGE DLC-259
1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
Proton Activation Data File in ENDF-6 Format.
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS

Postfach 3640, 76021 Karlsruhe, Germany through the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data
Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
energies Proton Activation Data File (PADF-2007) contains 418,575 excitation
functions of nuclear reactions for 2355 target nuclei from Mg to Ra at proton
energies up to 150 MeV. The data are given for stable and unstable target
nuclei including isomeric targets with half-lifes more than one second. The cross-sections
were obtained on the basis of model calculations using the TALYS and the
ALICE/ASH codes and available experimental data.
is available in pointwise and groupwise data format.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
calculation of cross-sections for stable target nuclei and unstable nuclei with
half-lifes more than 10 minutes was performed using the TALYS code.
Cross-sections for target nuclei with the decay half-life 1 sec < T1/2 <
10 min were obtained using the ALICE/ASH code.
for isomeric targets with T1/2 > 1 hour were carried out by TALYS.
Approximate data are included in the present version of PADF for other
short-lived isomeric targets.
residuals are presented in PADF for nuclei with T1/2 > 1 sec.
cross-sections available in EXFOR for proton induced reactions, (p,x) including
(p,gamma), were used for the correction of calculated excitation functions and
the cross-section evaluation. This involved cross-sections for independent
(non-cumulative) residual yields from 1434 EXFOR data sets. PADF also includes
calculated neutron-, proton-, deuteron-, triton-, 3He-, a-particle- and
g-production cross-sections. PADF is available in pointwise and groupwise data
pointwise data are presented in standard ENDF-6 format.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
groupwise format of PADF is the same as the one used for IEAF data. The 256
group data files were generated using the NJOY code. The 175 group structure of
VITAMIN-J was adopted at energies below 20 MeV. The energy bin of 1 MeV was
used for the energy range from 20 to 50 MeV and 2 MeV - bin for energies from
50 to 150 MeV.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
256 group data files were generated using the NJOY code. The 175 group
structure of VITAMIN-J was adopted at energies below 20 MeV.
