I would like to add one thing too.
There are no Lanthanum cross sections in the present low-energy neutron
library. Therefore, the actual question to be asked is; "Will Lanthanum
be added to the library in the next release?". I know that many new elements
will be added, but I don't know yet about Lanthanum.
