The NISTPAD Project
The NIST Photon Attenuation Data code is a class which handles the photon attenuation data from the NIST website. It allows you to easily import data for any element or material listed on the website and quickly calculate attenuation and energy absorption coefficients for photon energies ranging from 1 keV to 20 MeV.
If you want to see a working example of the NISTPAD class, check out the photon attenuation coefficient calculator.
- Photon attenutation data files (NISTX folder): NISTX.zip or NISTX.tar.gz
- The DataInterpolation utility code (choose appropriate programming language)
