3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

  FORMAT: --

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: --

NUCLIDES: More than 500 radionuclides created during or after thermal fission.

ORIGIN: This compilation is completely referenced and includes data available in the reviewed literature up to January 1982.

  WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: --

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
The data library consists of electron spectra following decay of individual fission products in the atomic mass range 71 < A < 163. Data are given for more than 500 radionuclides created during or after thermal fission. The data include transition energies, absolute intensities, and shape parameters when known. An "average" beta-ray energy is given for fission products lacking experimental information on transition energies and intensities. For fission products having partial or incomplete decay information, the available data are utilized to provide best estimates of otherwise unknown decay schemes. The data file is from  the evaluation of Dickens.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

BETASP is utilized to read up to eleven records of information from the file of data, and from these  to compute both a beta-ray and an antineutrino spectrum. After reading the appropriate data records for the selected radionuclide proton number and isotope mass, the program calculates the total response, including forbidden shapes for up to 3d-forbidden unique and up to 2d-forbidden non-unique if known parameters are included in the data table. The results are in number-per-bin-width.
A sample main program is included to demonstrate the call to the BETASP routine to compute the beta-ray and antineutrino spectrum for 90Y.
