Elastic neutron-scattering cross sections for carbon nucleus have been measured by using 134-MeV monoenergetic neutron beam in Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University. The measured angles were set at 6$$^{circ}$$, 8$$^{circ}$$, and 15$$^{circ}$$ in laboratory system. The liquid organic scintillators, whose size is 12.7 cm in diameter and 12.7 cm in thickness, were mounted at each angle as neutron detector. In the off-line analysis, the events of elastic-neutron scattering were extracted on basis of the Time-of-Flight (TOF) information. The results were compared with the data measured by the groupe of U.C. Davis with a recoil proton spectrometer and the evaluations of the nuclear data libraries, JENDL/HE-2007 and ENDF/B-VII.0. Our results show a good agreement with the data of U.C. Davis. This indicates that our experimental method based on the TOF teqnique is appropriate to the measurement of elastic neutron-scattering cross section in this energy region. In addition, we exhibit that the data of ENDF/B-VII.0 represent the experimental data, but JENDL/HE-2007 underestimates about 30$${%}$$ in the forward angle region.
