These cross sections are calculated from JENDL-4.0 at 300K.
The background color of each cell noted a cross section means the order of the cross-section value.
The unit of cross section, (b), means barns, and SI prefixes are used as following.
(kb) → 103(b),   (mb) → 10−3(b),  (μb) → 10−6(b),  (nb) → 10−9(b).
