Abstract

The code ELENA (ELEment NAvigator) is designed for the information ensuring of X-ray fluorescent, neutron activation and neutron radiation analysis of the elemental and isotopic compound of materials. For the selected chemical element the code reports: • basic principal physical and chemical properties of the element; • energies and intensities of the characteristic X-radiation lines; • isotopic abundance and properties of isotopes known for the element.

The following can be got for each isotope: • energies, lifetimes and quantum numbers of low-lying excited states; • energies and yields of gamma-lines in decay of the isotope; • cross-section in the radiation capture of thermal neutrons and the resonant integral value; • energies and intensities of the γ-lines from the radiation capture of neutrons.

The program delivers a list of elements or isotopes that have the X-ray or gamma radiation in a given energy interval.

Actual data are presented in tables and graphs. The code ELENA is supplied with detailed comments and can be used for training purposes.
