Spin correlation coefficients for neutronproton radiative capture
Abstract
We use a theoretical model for deuteron photodisintegration below the pion production threshold, which has previously been used to calculate the observables for which experimental data is available, in order to calculate the spin correlation coefficients for radiative capture of a polarized neutron beam by a polarized proton target. We give results for the coefficients whose measurement is possible in the near future and explain how such experimental results could improve our understanding of the reaction mechanism. We also comment on exciting measurements of the neutron analyzing power at very low energies.
