Analysing power for12 C(n,n0,1)12 C and evaluation of n-12 C scattering at 18.2 MeV


Journal Article

The analysing power Ay( theta ) for12C(n,n)12C elastic scattering and for inelastic scattering to the first excited state (Jpi=2+, Q=-4.44 MeV) of12C was measured at 18.2 MeV. A pulsed polarised neutron beam was produced via the2H(d,n)3He polarisation transfer reaction. The Aydata, together with published cross sections, were analysed in the framework of the spherical optical model and in the coupled-channels formalism. A phase-shift analysis at 18.2 MeV gives supporting evidence for a broad5/2+resonance. The12C recoil kerma factors and values for the n+12C reaction cross section were deduced and compared with previous estimates and predictions.
