Discrepancy between three-nucleon calculations and neutron-deuteron elastic analyzing power data at 8.5 MeV


Journal Article

The analyzing power Ay(θ) in neutron-deuteron elastic scattering was measured at En = 8.5 MeV. Comparison of the data with realistic three-nucleon calculations reveals a pronounced difference at the maximum of Ay(θ), which is most likely due to either an inadequate knowledge of the 3P components of the nucleon-nucleon interaction or to three-body effects in the three-nucleon system. © 1988.
