Sensitivity of n-p scattering observables to charge-independence breaking of the3 P N-N phase shifts


Journal Article

The sensitivity of neutron-proton scattering observables to the recently reported charge-independence breaking of the isospin T=13P nucleon-nucleon interaction has been calculated. It is shown that only the analyzing power Ay(θ) at extreme forward angles and at θ=90° c.m. and the spin-correlation coefficient Azx(θ) at 90° c.m. exhibit a measurable sensitivity. It is concluded that the determination of Ay at 90° c.m. is currently the most accurate approach to verify independently charge-independence breaking in the3P nucleon-nucleon phase shifts, considering the status of present experimental techniques. © 1990 Springer-Verlag.
