Reduced Transition Probabilities or B(E2; 0+ → 2+) Values

Recent data on electric quadrupole transition probabilities or B(E2; 0+ → 2+) values.
New Evaluation: Tables of E2 transition probabilities from the first 2+ states in even-even nuclei, B. Pritychenko, M. Birch, B. Singh, M. Horoi, At. Data Nucl. Data Tables 107, 1 (2016).

Explanation of Tables:
Nuclide The even Z, even N nuclide studied
Transition Energy Energy of the first excited 2+ state in keV
Transition Rate Ratio B(↑) = (2J + 1)B(↓)/(2J0+1), where J0 and J are spins of the lower and upper levels, respectively.
B(E2; 0+ → 2+) Reduced electric quadrupole transition rate for the ground state to 2+ state transition in units of e2b2
W.U. Weisskopf units are based on single-particle estimate for the λ-th multipole reduced electric transition probability and originally have been used for transitions from higher to lower states: Bw(Eλ)=(1/4π)(3/(λ+3))2(1.2)A2λ/3 e2fm
  Weisskopf (single-particle) B(E2) value for 0+→2+ transition is given by:
Bw(E2↑)=0.297xA4/3 e2fm4
τ Mean lifetime of the state in ps
τ = 40.81 x 1013E-5[B(E2↑)/e2b2]-1(1 + α)-1
β Deformation parameter
β = (4π/3ZR02)[B(E2↑)/e2]1/2, where
R02 = (1.2 x 10-13 A1/3 cm)2 = 0.0144A2/3b
Q0 Intrinsic quadrupole moment in b
Q0 = [16πB(E2↑)/5e2]1/2
