Looking for excited state gamma emission data on everything?

Hey guys, I am looking for a database on gamma emission from the first few excited states of known isotopes for a piece of software we are putting together. Any format is fine.

Thanks!

Here is a link to a database of for gamma decay schemes for number of isotopes https://www.nucleonica.com/wiki/index.php?title=Decay_Schemes
Thank you gleem, unfortunately what we need is non decay gamma emission from things like non elastic collisions, product emission from fusion/fission reactions, etc..

Basically the gamma specs for all nuclides going from the excited states to ground states of each nucleus.

You want the gamma decay scheme right? for which nuclei?

Not the decay schemes, but more like from the products of reactions like this:

Si28+n->Si28+n+gamma, where the gamma comes from the excited state of the Si28

or this:

O16+T->F18+n gamma, where the gamma comes from the excited state of the F18

Basically, each nucleus has a ground state, if it is excited to a higher state via an incoming particle in a non elastic collision like in the first example, or by an energetic nuclear transmutation (products have less mass than the reactants, and E=mc^2, therefore energy is evolved) as in the second example.
