The 2012 recommended k 0 database

Abstract

Many overview papers have been published with recommended nuclear data for use in the k 0 method of NAA and made available in scientific journals or in the form of a downloadable database. In September 2009, the k 0-International Scientific Committee formed the k 0-Nuclear Data Committee (k 0-NDC) whose first task was to collect all these data at a single place to facilitate updating and to correct any evident errors. This task of the k 0-NDC was successfully completed in March 2012 when the 2012 recommended k 0 database was published in the form of an Excel file.
