Analyzing power measurements for (H2(npol,n)H2) scattering at 10 MeV compared to few-nucleon calculations and data for (H2(ppol,p)H2) scattering

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The analyzing power Ay() for scattering of neutrons from deuterons at 10 MeV for 30°to 145°(c.m.) was measured to an accuracy better than 0.005. The results are compared to published p-d data at 10 MeV, and convincing differences are noted for the first time. These differences provide a sensitive test both of calculations for the three-nucleon system and, more importantly, of the fundamental nucleon-nucleon interaction. © 1982 The American Physical Society.
