Abstract

Analyzing powers in low-energy neutron scattering from C12 are calculated in an algebraic momentum-space coupled-channel formalism, that is, a multichannel algebraic scattering (MCAS) theory. The results are compared with recently obtained experimental data. The channel-coupling potentials have been defined previously to reproduce the total cross section and subthreshold bound states of the compound system. Without further adjustment, good agreement with data for the analyzing powers is obtained. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
