International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (ICRM)
Decay Data Working Group
The Nuclear Decay Data Working Group (NDDWG) facilitates awareness and communications between ICRM members interested in the measurement, calculation, compilation
and evaluation of decay data, and the maintenance of computer-based decay data files (including: half-lives; energies and emission probabilities of alpha and beta particles, gamma and x-rays,
conversion and Auger electrons; internal conversion coefficients; transition types; and other relevant parameters, with their uncertainties).
At the General Meeting, which took place in Oxford in September 2005, of the International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (ICRM), the Delegates formally approved the recommendation
to use the DDEP evaluated decay data in all future nuclear data studies.
The ICRM Executive Board has renewed this recommendation, particularly in view of the drafting and refereeing work for the ICRM Conferences.
Members of the NDDWG are encouraged to use the Working Group to communicate experimental and theoretical work, relevant evaluation procedures, their decay data problems, and to establish methodologies that are fully consistent with the satisfactory production of recommended decay data.
