Parity nonconserving spin rotation in weak neutron-proton scattering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Parity nonconservation in weak n-p scattering is studied at threshold wehre neutron spin rotation might occur. We use the DDH weak NN force and a separable form with S, P and D partial waves in the strong NN interaction. The contribution of various spin-isospin components to the weak NN scattering amplitude is evaluated and the spin rotation angle is found to be -2.35 × 10-9 rad/cm. The sources of possible errors are indicated.
