Review of nuclear physics experimental data for space radiation.

Author information

  • 1NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA 23681, USA.


The available nuclear fragmentation data relevant to space radiation studies are reviewed. It is found that there are serious gaps in the data. Helium data are missing in the intervals 280 MeV n-3 GeV n and >15 GeV n. Carbon data are missing >15 GeV n. Iron projectile data are missing at all energies except in the interval 280 MeV n-3 GeV n.
