Universal curve of Gres vs. published results

The values of Gres obtained by Shcherbakov and Harada [1] for gold foils are very well fitted by the universal curve of resonance neutron self-shielding factors as a function of a dimensionless variable, Gres(z) [2]. This comparison was not made in [2] because article [2] was submitted to Applied Radiation and Isotopes while [1] was under review in Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology.
