Abstract

In this paper we review the results of a series of high-accuracy measurements on the neutron-deuteron (n-d) scattering system at incident neutron energies below 20 MeV. These measurements were designed to: 1) provide data of sufficient accuracy to be used to refine the parametrization of the nucleon-nucleon force, 2) to test the reaction dynamics in the "rigorous" calculations of three-nucleon (3N) breakup reactions, and 3) identify 3N scattering observables that are specifically sensitive to three-nucleon forces and/or off-shell effects. At TUNL we have measured vector analyzing powers Ay (θ) for n-d elastic scattering and the breakup reaction to an accuracy better than ± 0.005 and ± 0.020, respectively. Recent results on items 1) and 2) will be presented. Also, results of cross-section measurements for n-d and p-d breakup will be compared to a "rigorous" 3N calculation.
