Survey on measurement of half-life, spin and parity .

What percentage of half life values are measured in a given nucleus?
Similarly what percentage of spin and parity values are measured?

If a level scheme has N energy levels observed, and if only M levels have their half-life values measured,
then the value Ph is devined as Ph = M x 100/N

Example. If a nuclei has 137 energy levels and if 17 out of those have their Half life values measured, P=17 x 10/137 = 12.4
Similarly Ps and Pp are calculated for spin and parity.

A survey was carried out on almost full nuclear chart and the values of Ph, Ps and Pp are calculated.

Results of the survey can be seen in this presentation .
