Recently a method for high accuracy total cross section measurement in the energy range of 24 keV to 940 keV using an iron filtered beam was developed at RPI. Measurements the total cross section of carbon and beryllium are discussed. A new neutron detection system was developed at RPI and the first measurement with this system is reported here.
