The ground state differential cross sections for the (n, p) reaction at 0° on 6Li, 12C and 13C have been measured for 198 MeV neutrons with a precision of about 4% relative to the corresponding value for the H(n, p) reaction. These data, together with the accurately known ft values for the β- decay of 6He, 12B and 13B provide three calibrations of the (n, p) reaction as a probe of Gamow-Teller strength for isospin raising transitions.
