Experimental determination of k0 nuclear data for the cesium radionuclides

Abstract
The current (official) k (0) nuclear data for the cesium radionuclides was determined circa 1987 and was partially adopted from older literature. In this work we aimed at the redetermination of experimental k (0), Q (0) and (r) factors with metrological care. The results are in good agreement with more recent results from other authors. Our Q (0) and (r) values were 2-15 and 25 % different, respectively. The k (0) factors were determined according to the cadmium subtraction technique, resulting in values 3-7 % different than the official ones. Our precision and accuracy is discussed.
