J/A+A/511/L10). Equivalent widths of atomic lines are measured from high resolution VLT/UVES and NOT/FIES spectra and used to derive abundance ratios from an LTE analysis based on MARCS model atmospheres. The analysis is made relative to two thick-disk stars, HD22879 and HD76932, such that very precise differential values are obtained. Description: Atmospheric parameters and abundance ratios, [Mn/Fe], [Cu/Fe], [Zn/Fe], [Y/Fe], and [Ba/Fe], are given for 78 halo stars and 16 thick-disk stars observed with the ESO VLT/UVES and NOT/FIES spectrographs at high resolution. Six stars, G20-15, HD148816, HD179626, HD189558, HD193901 and HD194598 have been observed with the two spectrographs. File Summary:

Note (1): [α/Fe] is defined as 1/4([Mg/Fe]+[Si/Fe]+[Ca/Fe]+[Ti/Fe]). Note (2): Classification of star as belonging to the thick-disk (TD), the low-α halo, or the high-α halo population. For stars with [Fe/H]←1.4, the classification is uncertain and given in parentheses.
