Abstract

The neutron-deuteron (nd) elastic scattering differential cross section has been measured at 95 MeV incident neutron energy. The neutron-proton (np) differential cross section has also been measured for normalization purposes. An inclusion of three-nucleon forces gives a considerable improvement in the theoretical description of the nd data in the angular region of the cross-section minimum.
