The Role of the Nuclear Reaction Data Centres in Experimental Nuclear Data Knowledge Sharing
- The International Network of Nuclear Reaction Data Centres (NRDC) consists of 14 data centres from 10 countries and 2 international organisations, and is collaborating for compilation, exchange and dissemination of various types of nuclear reaction data information. The nuclear data centres common data collection, the EXFOR database today contains experimental information and numerical data from more than 18,000 experiments consisting of more than 134,000 data sets mainly of nuclear reaction data for incident neutrons, charged-particles and photons with incident energy lower than 1 GeV. A brief history and the current status of NRDC collaboration are presented for EXFOR as well as CINDA and ENDF.
