Determination of the absolute alpha-particle emission probabilities of 237 Np
In the framework of the EUROMET project No. 416, decay scheme data of 2-17Np were measured by a-particle spectrometrv. Emission probabilities of alpha particles and x-rays were determined in the past at IRMM. After improvements of the detector system and the electron bending magnet the a-particle measurements have been repeated. As a result, the absolute emission probabilities of 20 alpha-particle transitions were obtained with a significant lower uncertainty. Among those transitions already known, five new were found.
