In the European Fusion programme, safety and environmental impact issues are of great importance in the continuing development of fusion power plants. As part of this programme, a sound, complete and reliable neutron cross section data library is required. The European Activation File (EAF) project has been an ongoing process performed through European and world-wide co-operation that has led to the creation of succeeding EAF versions: from 1, in 1989, to 4.1 in 1995. The latest release, EAF-97, has benefited from the generation and maintenance of comprehensive activation files and the maturing of the processing code SYMPAL. This report describes, in graphical format, an important subset of the content of the European Activation File EAF-97. It presents data for the (n, gamma) reactions for 765 target nuclides from (1)H to (275)Fm which comprise a total of 1002 reaction channels in pointwise format. Experimental data at thermal energy, 30 keV and 14.5 MeV are also plotted where available.
