The low-energy neutron-deuteron analyzing power and the 3 P0,1,2 interactions of nucleon-nucleon potentials


Journal Article

Data for the analyzing power Ay(θ) for the elastic scattering of neutrons from deuterons have been measured at 5.0, 6.5 and 8.5 MeV to an accuracy of ±0.0035. Surprisingly large differences have been observed at these low energies between the data and rigorous Faddeev calculations using the Paris and Bonn B nucleon-nucleon potentials. The Ay(θ) data provide a stringent test for our present understanding of the on-shell and off-shell 3P0,1,2 nucleon-nucleon interactions. © 1991.
