Abstract : Evaluations of neutron interaction and photon production cross sections for sodium, magnesium, chlorine, potassium, and calcium have been translated from a modified-UK format into ENDF/B format. The data have been reviewed and revised to a minor extent, and can be used by the LAPH code to generate multigroup photon production cross section matrices. Several 'physics' checks have been proposed for the photon data, and a FORTRAN IV code, PHOX, has been written to incorporate some of these checks.
