Files containing nuclear reaction data such as cross sections, spectra, angular distributions, polarizations, etc, along with information on experimental technique, error analysis, and applied standards.
ENDF
Evaluated Nuclear
(reaction) Data File
Core nuclear reaction database containing evaluated (recommended) data from the ENDF/B-VII library (also JEFF, JENDL, ENDF/B-VI, BROND, ROSFOND and CENDL). It provides data in the ENDF-6 format, covering all nuclides of practical relevance (393 in total) for neutrons up to 20 MeV and partly up to 150 MeV. It serves as principal input for neutronics calculations, including nuclear reactor design, national security, accelerators, criticality safety, shielding, radiation protection and detector simulation.
