The analyzing power A y [(θ) for 12 C(n, n 0,1 ) 12 C between 8.9 and] 14.9 MeV neutron energy


Journal Article

The analyzing power A y (θ) for 12 C(n,n) 12 C elastic scattering and for inelastic scattering to the first excited state (J π = 2 + , Q = -4.44 MeV) of 12 C was measured in the energy range from 8.9 to 14.9 MeV in 1 MeV steps. A pulsed polarized neutron beam was produced via the su2rmH(d,n) 3 He polarization transfer reaction. Monte Carlo simulations were used to correct the data for finite geometry and multiple scattering effects. The A y data, together with published crosssection data, were analyzed in the framework of the spherical optical model and in the coupled-channels formalism. A good description of the data has been achieved. © 1983.
