Abstract : The report describes the transmission method for measuring total neutron cross sections. The method of sample alignment and transmission minimization are discussed. In addition, a review of the theory is given. Results for total neutron cross sections of gadolinium, calcium, and potassium, obtained by the transmission method, are presented. (Author)
