renormalized to these corrected yields of Bidinosti et al., and are
shown in Table 4 (Appendix), along with the average values and some radio-
metric data. For yields of > 11, differences between the values we have
selected and those of Katcoff (7) are between 0.2 and 12.5%, with the
average difference being 2.3%. The corresponding differences between
our values and those of Walker (8) were between 0.0 and 23.5%, with
the average difference being 3.6%. Since all three sets of preferred
yields were obtained by independent evaluations of the published data,
these differences are probably an indication of the reliability of such
selected values. Our selected values are plotted in Fig. 4 together
with those yields. of > 1% reported by Katcoff and by Walker which differ
from ours by more than the. average:differences.
Conclusions and Recommendations
While the selected yields given here are felt to b2 aefruate
to 5 - 10% for the most part, their absolute values depend somewhat on
the yield values at several interpolated points (because of the normali-
zation procedures used). The yields at masses 128, 129, and 130 are
the most significant yields missing from the heavy peak. Two important
normalization points in the light peak are at masses 99 and 103; the
previously-reported (15, 30) absolute radiometric yields at these masses
should perhaps be redetermined. In addition, there are several yields
missing from the valley of the mass-yield curve, and most of the reported
yields are from the early work of Steinberg et al. (15). It would also
be valuable to use radiometric techniques to check the mass-spectrometri-
cally determined yields wherever feasible.
