Equality of analyzing power and polarization in the reaction H3(p, n)3He


Journal Article

The quantities Ay and Py were remeasured for Ep<4 MeV in the reaction H3(p, n)3He. Although our Ay data confirm previous data, our Py values are appreciably larger than earlier results and in fact agree well with those for Ay. Elimination of the previously reported Ay-Py difference has important consequences. Charge-symmetry-breaking effects must be small or nonexistent in this reaction; and the previously required f-wave admixture to the lowest Jπ=2- state of He4 is no longer necessary. © 1976 The American Physical Society.
