Available isotopes for Nickel (Z=28)
Recommended MACS30 (Maxwellian Averaged Cross Section @ 30keV)
Cross sections do not include stellar enhancement factors!
(Version 0.0 corresponds to Bao et al.)
Previous recommended cross section was 12.5 (40) mb (due to subtraction of subthreshold resonance before extrapolation to stellar energies).
New recommended value is weighted average of recalculated value from NPA05 and values of SWa08, ABE08, and BeS75.

List of all available values
Original:MACS [<σ v>/vT] (mb) for kT=30 keV, based on the published cross sections except where indicated otherwise.
Renorm:MACS [<σ v>/vT] (mb) for kT=30 keV for which the reference or standard cross section was meanwhile improved.
Type: The letters and numbers in the column labelled 'type' give information on how the cross section has been obtained:
MACS, SEF and Reaction Rates for different energies
Procedure: 'e+t' (The MACS from kT=5 keV to 100 keV are derived from calculated cross sections, which are then normalized to experimental data, e.g. to the values at kT=25 keV obtained in activation measurements. In these cases the uncertainties should be linearly increased below 25 and above 30 keV to reach about 30% at the extreme kT values.)
SEF (Stellar enhancement factor):
Reaction rate NA<σv> given in 107 cm3/mole/s, including SEF
