An evaluation of the neutron standards that included the neutron cross section standards was recently completed. It is important to maintain experimental programs to increase the quality and extend the database for the neutron cross section standards in order to improve evaluations of them. In this paper work will be reported on new or continuing efforts on the cross section standards including that on the 30 keV Maxwellian averaged cross section for the 197Au(n,γ) reaction that is now a standard and is used in neutron capture cross section measurements as a standard for reactions important for astrophysics.
