Neutron Cross Sections
By Nate Ames on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012
When talking about nuclear materials, a phrase that often gets spoken is Neutron Cross Section. In a generic sense, the neutron cross section of an element is the respective probability of a neutron to hit the element (and presumably to cause damage to the element). Different elements have different neutron cross sections, attached is a spreadsheet and graph of the approximate neutron cross sections of different elements.
