Abstract

Neutron total cross sections are represented for Li to Pu targets at energies above 0. 1 MeV and less than 100 MeV using a modified nuclear Ramsauer formalism. The formalism is derived for energies above 100 MeV by fitting theoretical cross sections. Neutron absorption cross sections are represented by analytic expressions of similar form, but shape resonance phenomena of the Ramsauer effect are not present. Elastic differential cross sections are given as a renormalized impulse approximation. These cross section data bases will be useful for nucleon transport applications.
