Relevant data for CPA are: isotopic abundance, half-life, and decay mode. The Lund, IAEA, and Isotope Explorer databases also contain gamma-energy and gamma-intensity data. The IAEA database is static (NuDat March 1994)                 Download PC Windows programme

Charged Particle Activation (CPA) is related to any application using charged particles that induce a nuclear reaction leading to a radionuclide. Charged particles (protons, deuterons, tritons, helium-3, and helium-4 or alpha's) are accelerated by a cyclotron.

These applications are:

This web-site compiles all nuclear data relevant for CPA, found at: All data under the same heading are equivalent. Only the acces mode (remote host (www or telnet) or on a local computer) differs. Although registration as a user is recommended, all data are accessible as a 'guest', except for NEA.
