A series of new measurements has been undertaken in response to deficiencies identified in nuclear data libraries of crucial importance to the Nuclear Criticality Safety Program. New data and evaluations, including covariances, are required for several materials found in mixtures with uranium. For this purpose we performed neutron capture and total cross-section measurements on natural potassium, 41K, and manganese.
