The aim of E462/E508 experiment

Precise measurement of Asymmetry parameter

- high statistics
- Reduction of Statistical error.

- p-n coincidence measurement
- Lp→np

- measurements of 5He and 12C,11B in same setup
- possible to compare them in low systematic error

Summary

- A series of experiments, E462 (5He) and E508 (12C, 11B) were carried out to measure aNM precisely.
- We obtained nearly zero aNM’s (0.08±0.08+0.08, -0.14±0.28+0.18) in both nuclei. We don’t observe the difference in both reaction mechanism.
- Recent theoretical calculation indicates the contribution of the initial state of 1S0. For more check, measurement of 4H is required at J-PARC.

- DI = 3/2が大きく寄与する
- 今回Gn/Gp ratioとaNMを高精度で測定したことにより、
こういう反応機構の必要性が認識された。
