Abstract:

The spin correlation coefficients Cnn and CKP for proton-proton scattering at 400 and 450 Mev at 90 degrees in the center-of-mass system were measured using spark chambers containing carbon plates as the polarization analyzers. The results obtained are Cnn400 Mev 0.60 0.09, CKP400 Mev 0.32 0.09, Cnn450 Mev 0.70 0.15 and CKP450 Mev 0.37 0.14. The results of the 400 Mev measurements are consistent with predicted values for these coefficients obtained by extrapolating the p-p phase shifts from lower energies. Phase shift extrapolations to 450 Mev are not as yet available. Author
