BrIcc Data Tables BrIcc v2.3S and BrIcc v2.3G
Conversion Coefficient Calculator based on commonly used data tables
  • BrIccFO (default & recommended) - 'Frozen Orbitals' approximation to take into account the effect of the hole.
  • BrIccNH - 'No Hole' approximation which ignores the effect of the hole.
  • HsIcc - Hager-Seltzer and Dragoun et al. tables.
  • RpIcc - Rösel et al. tables.

a εic is the binding energy for the ic-shell
b Used for Z < 50
c Electronic factors are only calculated for even Z values at present
d Not used
e Used for Z < 40
f For Z=40–58: 51.1 keV; for Z=60–82: 102.2 keV; for Z=84–96: 153.3 keV and for Z=98–102: 204.4 keV

HsIcc data set

Data Table Reference Z Shells L Transition energy [keV] a
Internal Conversion Coefficient (ICC) i
HsIcc Based on the Hager and Seltzer 1968Ha53 and Dragoun et al. 1971Dr11 tables 30–103 K, L, M
and N+ shellsg
1–4 εic+1–1500h
g For K-, L-, and M-shells: Z=30–103; for N+ shell Z=37–100
h For K-shell: εic+1 – 1500(1650) keV; for L-shell: εic+1 – 1000(1550) keV; for M-shell: εic+1 – 150(510) keV;
  for N+ shell: 50 – 500 keV
i K-, L- and M-shell ICC values for L=3 and 4 multipolarities have not been scaled as recommended by 1990Ne01.
  ICC values should be multiplied by 0.975 (10) for L=3 and 0.975 (5) for L=4 to agree with values from HsIcc.
