Spin-orbit deformations deduced from analyzing powers for inelastic neutron scattering from Fe54, Fe56, Ni58, Ni60, Sn120, and Pb208
Analyzing powers Ay() for inelastic scattering of 10-MeV neutrons to the first excited states of Fe54, Fe56, Ni58, Ni60, Sn120, and Pb208 have been measured at a few selected angles. These data were analyzed using a coupled channels code in which the full Thomas form of the spin-orbit potential is assumed. The magnitudes of the observed spin-orbit deformations, which were found to be similar to those of (p,p) in each case, contradict recent suggestions based on microscopic nuclear structure considerations.
