Abstract

By the development of nuclear science and technology the need for accurate neutron and nuclear decay data of heavy elements has been increasingly recognized. In the past it became obvious that for a large number of data the achieved accuracies were not adequate to meet the requirements. Consequently, the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, convened in 1975 and 1979, respectively at Karlsruhe and Cadarache, Advisory Group Meetings on Transactinium Isotope Nuclear Data (International Atomic Energy Agency, 1976, 1980). At these meetings users and producers were brought together to assess the requirements for these data, to review their status and to formulate recommendations and measures for the coordination of future work. In response to one of the recommendations formulated at the Karlsruhe meeting, the IAEA Nuclear Data Section organized in 1977 a Coordinated Research Programme (CRP) on the measurement and evaluation of transactinium isotope nuclear decay data. The objectives of the Coordinated Research Programme, its organization, the achievements and the ongoing work are reported.
