FITEVT: A FORTRAN program for arrival-time analysis of nuclear-decay events

Published: 6 December 2022| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/scg6p9jxjk.1


FITEVT is a FORTRAN program designed to analyze recorded arrival times of nuclear-decay events affected by dead-time. The primary goal of the program is precise and accurate determination of half-lives. Its method involves imposition of a known sufficiently long extending dead-time to the recorded event sequence, so that the original dead-time effects are completely obliterated and the remaining live-times of the survived events are known exactly. Upon completion of the analysis, the arrival-time spectrum and the live-time spectrum are predicted and compared to those constructed from the survived events.
