The cross section for natural titanium is calculated as a sum of the cross sections for its stable isotopes weighted by the relative abundance. The evaluated differential cross sections are provided in the energy range from 1.8 to 2.5 MeV. The evaluation is based mainly on the work by N.H.Prochnow et al. where a table of the resonance parametes for Ti-48 is published (see Nucl. Phys. A194 (1972) 353). Only potential scattering (no resonances) was taken into account for minor titanium isotopes.
Rauhala's data (Nucl. Instrum. Methods B40/41 (1989) 790) seems to be overestimated. No physical reasons was found for the cross section to exceed Rutherford value by 5% at 1800 keV.
