Also atom percent, although I've never seen it used in scientific documents.

Atom percent is the percentage of the atoms of an element that are of a particular isotope. Atom percent is abbreviated as a/o.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Gillian Scheibelein: never heard of a/o though
1 hr
  -> Neither have I, I suspect it should be a % (never heard of that one either, though).

agree  Bahram Salehi: I think that atomic proportion is better
7 hrs
  -> Atomic proportion is not quite the same and it is necessary to use percent as it is clearly talking about a percentage.

agree  Michele Fauble
12 hrs
  -> Thanks Michele.
