Energy dependence of nucleon-deuteron elastic scattering observables and its bearing on the3 PJ nucleon-nucleon interactions

Published

Journal Article

The energy dependence of neutron-deuteron elastic scattering observables has been calculated from 5 to 45 MeV via rigorous three-nucleon calculations using the Bonn B nucleon-nucleon interaction. The goal of these calculations was to identify energy and angular regions that may be investigated experimentally to study the question of charge-symmetry breaking in the3PJ nucleon-nucleon forces and/or Coulomb interactions. It was found that the measurement of the neutron-deuteron elastic analyzing power at 16 and 22.7 MeV and its comparison to proton-deuteron data obtained at the same incident energy is the most promising case for studying the issue of charge-symmetry breaking in the3PJ nucleon-nucleon forces and/or Coulomb interactions. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
