"The AME2003 atomic mass evaluation" is presented here in the form of four files:
- mass.mas03 - Atomic mass table
- rct1.mas03 - Nuclear reaction Q-values and separation
- rct2.mas03 - Nuclear reaction Q-values and separation
- mass.mas03round - "Rounded" version of
mass.mas03 (Rounding threshold of 30)
The format of these data files are described in each of their headers (first 39
records). Note that the format is not identical to the 1993 and 1995 files.
information may be found on the Atomic Mass Data Center Website.
This includes figures
used in the evaluation and errata.

Decay Q-values and reaction Q-values and threshold energies may be calculated
using the Q-value calculator.
This form also allows retrievals of the atomic masses, Q-values, and separation
energies contained in the 1995 Update to the Atomic Mass Evaluation.
Experimental data from the 1995 Update to the Atomic Mass Evaluation are
included in these sites. Reaction Q-values and threshold energies for
projectiles and outgoing particles between 1n and 4He
may be calculated using the
these calculations are based on the 1995 Audi-Wapstra experimental masses when
available, otherwise on the FRDM (1992) mass model.
