Abstract : A survey was made of all pertinent cross section data in the current literature concerning the number and energy, as a function of angle, of the neutrons and gamma rays emitted when various elements are bombarded with neutrons of energies of 1 and 14 Mev. These are contained in tablesAND GRAPHS OF THE APPENDIX. Cross section results for 14 Mev neutrons are included for 46 elements. Also included are the results of an investigation of 1-Mev data for 19 elements. Angular distributions are given for elastically scattered neutrons from 19 elements. References for the 14 Mev survey (Part A) are numbered consecutively starting with Number 1 and are included in a bibliography at the end of Part A. References for the 1 Mev survey (Part B) are also numbered consecutively starting with Number 1 and are given at the end of Part B. (Author)
