Analyzing powers for neutron elastic scattering at forward angles


Journal Article (Review)

Accurate neutron analyzing powers have been obtained using a new pulsed polarized neutron facility. Data are presented for elastic scattering of 14-MeV neutrons from Ca40, Fe54, Cu65, Sn120, and Pb208 between 18°and 36°. Our data exhibit no evidence for the anomalously large values which were reported previously at 20°.
