The database contains evaluated cross sections for 48 reactions induced by light charged-particles with incident energies up to several tens of MeV (maximum 100 MeV). Production cross sections for the most important diagnostic radioisotopes are given, with 16 reactions devoted to gamma emitters, and 10 reactions devoted to positron emitters. Cross sections for beam monitor reactions are given for 22 reactions induced by protons, deuterons, 3-He, and alpha particles.
Complete documentation is available, including evaluation methodology, detailed bibliography, graphical and tabulated results. A hardcopy was published as IAEA-TECDOC-1211 (May 2001).
Definitions of the quantities given - production yields and cross sections - can be found here (PDF,15 kB).
The database was developed under the IAEA Coordinated Research Project
