About the AMDC









NUBASE2016 and AME2016 are available

The Atomic Mass Evaluation (AME) has been serving the research community by providing the most reliable and comprehensive information related to the atomic masses for more than six decades. Since the publication of the last AME mass table in 2012, the experimental knowledge of atomic masses has continuously expanded and a large amount of data relevant to atomic masses has been published in the scientific literature. The new complete evaluation AME2016 has been accomplished recently and published together with NUBASE2016. In the AME2016 atomic mass table there is a total of 3923 masses of which 3435 are ground state masses (2497 experimental masses and 938 estimated ones), and 488 are excited isomers (369 experimental and 119 estimated).

 The NUBASE2016 and AME2016 evaluation appear in the March issue of “Chinese Physics C”, as three articles:

1.     "The NUBASE2016 evaluation of nuclear properties" by
         G. Audi, F.G. Kondev, M. Wang, W.J. Huang, S. Naimi
         Chinese Physics C 41, 030001 (2017).

2.     "The AME2016 atomic mass evaluation (I).
