Q(β-)=-2.68×103 keV SYS(n)= 7.54×103 keV SYS(p)= 3.62×103 keV SYQ(α)= 6.20×103 keV SY
Reference: 2012WA38

General Comments:

For calculation of mass excess by a semiempirical method, see 1988Po04.

Q-value: Note: Current evaluation has used the following Q record

Q-value: ΔQ(β-)=220(syst), ΔS(n)=120(syst), ΔS(p)=60(syst), ΔQ(α)=30(syst) 2003Au03

(α)/(α+ε)=0.00025 3 was deduced by measuring the α and γ spectra of the same sample (1975Ah05). Iγ(280.2γ)=0.473 20 per ε decay was used. In 1952Hi63 an α/ε=9.1×10-6 33 value was determined from ce- and α-counting rates, assuming that 239Pu(d,3n) and 239Pu(d,4n) reactions had equal yields at E(d)=30-50 MeV.
