SIGMACALC VERSION 2.0

The SigmaCalc program has been developed by A. Gurbich and allows calculating cross-section data for non-Rutherford scattering and nuclear reactions for many ion-target combinations at any angle.

These evaluated cross-sections are based on a nuclear model, are benchmarked in many cases, and are generally more accurate than individual experimental data sets. The use of SigmaCalc cross-section data therefore provides unsurpassed accuracy for the simulation of elastic scattering and nuclear reaction analysis measurements.

SigmaCalc can be downloaded together with SIMNRA.

SigmaCalc 2.0 provides the following cross-section data for elastic scattering at all angles:
