REQUIREMENTS FOR NUCLEAR STANDARD REFERENCE DATA FROM THE USERS' POINT OF VIEW
The requirements from the users' point of view for nuclear standards reference data with respect to accuracy of the data, traceability (documentation), representation (i.e. numerical values with uncertainties and correlation matrices, parametrization), availability of materials in suitable form (well defined layers, gases) and applicability in real life detectors (Q values of reactions, type of particles or photons produced, smoothness and magnitude of cross-section) will be discussed. From these primary requirements additional requirements follow for internal consistency (via ratio measurements), for verification of physical constraints (total cross-section, inverse reaction), for additional basic information (angular distributions of reaction products, fragment energy distributions, description and understanding of the basic processes). The user is seen as the measurer who determines values of partial cross sections or other quantities relative to one or more of the selected standard reference data.
