Precision Gamma- and X-Ray Energies
Several goals encourage efforts to improve internal consistency of γ-ray and X-ray transition energy scales. These include but are not confined to: detector calibration, rationalization of nuclear level schemes and chemical analysis. Fewer and less obvious goals motivate efforts to relate these scales to external “standards”. Although our work has predominantly addressed the latter class of applications, the results obtained do exhibit increased measurement precision thereby also contributing to the former.
