Progress in Atomic Mass Determinations Since 1977

  • Aaldert H. Wapstra

The present paper summarizes the situation, after adding the new data reported at this conference, in the field of the experimental determination of masses of atoms, that is, essentially, of total nuclear binding energies. Our starting point will be our 1977 evaluation1), and we will add several points not yet mentioned at this conference. A general overview is as follows.


Mass Number Decay Energy Combine Error Charge Exchange Reaction Double Charge Exchange 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
