Study of parity nonconservation with epithermal neutrons

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors describe a new generation of experiments studying the weak interaction between nucleons. Measurements of the effect of this interaction are few in number and the significance of the observed effects are generally small. It is well known that the weak interaction violates parity. This was first experimentally established by C.S. Wu through measurement of an asymmetry of electrons emitted in the beta-decay of polarized {sup 60}Co. The measured asymmetry was large because beta decay is a weak interaction process. For a process in which the - strong interaction can contribute, we expect much smaller asymmetries, of order 10{sup ... continued below
