Three-nucleon Force Effects in Neutron-induced Deuteron Breakup
The differential cross section for the neutron-induced deuteron breakup reaction was measured at the LANSCE/WNR facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory during the summer of 2007. It has been suggested theoretically that the differential cross section for neutron-deuteron scattering may be sensitive to three-nucleon effects for scattering of protons and neutrons in coincidence at small forward angles on the same side of the incident neutron beam. In this experiment, a permanent magnet spectrometer was located at a small forward angle to detect protons and a ‘wall’ of plastic scintillator neutron detectors was located beyond this spectrometer. The data collected are currently being analyzed.
