The database contains statistical model results for 9<Z<84 (Ne to Bi). There are further explanations available. For latest news, read the Forum.

Enter a search query in the control field on the right or download the full tables. Access is free, no registration required! If you like what you get or if you have additional questions, please send an e-mail.

The cross sections and reactivities (reaction rates per particle pair) were published in Atomic Data Nuclear Data Tables 79 (2001) 47. For further information, see also the link to "Data Tables" in the navigation bar on the left. The full tables can also be downloaded.

In addition to the above, the astrophysically relevant energy windows are shown along with the cross sections. These energy windows are taken from Phys. Rev. C 81 (2010) 045807. The standard simple formula for the Gamow windows is incorrect and can only be used for comparatively few, special cases (see also this post).

Furthermore, sensitivity plots are shown. The plots are regularly updated, if you do not see a plot for the reaction you want, check back next Tuesday! The values are also tabulated; for the definition of the sensitivities and further details, see the attached paper.

Stellar enhancement factors (SEF) and ground state contributions to the stellar rate (X-factors) are given for the reactivities and MACS. For details on SEFs and X-factors, see the separate table.

Fits to the reactivities (reaction rates per particle pair) and additional information can be found in Atomic Data Nuclear Data Tables 75 (2000) 1.

Please cite the above references and the URL of this web page when you make use of these results. Thank you!

If you need the cross sections or reactivities (reaction rates per particle pair) at different energies or temperatures than provided here, feel free to use my interpolation program.

Note: For (n,γ) reactions, the cross sections and reactivities (with FRDM input) should be renormalized to the recommended theoretical and experimental values given in Atomic Data Nuclear Data Tables 76 (2000) 70! That paper gives a theoretical correction of the rates correlated with the neutron number which can also be applied to nuclei further off stability.

Please note: These are only theoretical values, not the recommended REACLIB values, which also include experimental reactivities! If there are experimental values available, we recommend to use those instead of the theoretical ones.
