Abstract

As part of a Coordinated Research Project of the International Atomic Energy Agency to update a previous publication on radionuclide decay data, TECDOC 619, the National Physical Laboratory was asked to evaluate the half-lives of over 60 radionuclides. These radionuclides were identified as being of major importance in one or more of the various user groups which employ radionuclides.
The data that were used in the evaluations were those that were publicly available in the open literature. Various criteria were established both to determine the admissibility of the data and to maintain a common evaluation method for all of the radionuclides concerned.
This report details the evaluation criteria, the data used and the results of the evaluations.
