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