Precise measurement of the neutron-neutron scattering length — •Marco Knösel1 and Thomas Aumann1,2 for the NeuLAND-SAMURAI collaboration — 1Technische Universität Darmstadt — 2GSI Helmholtz-Zentrum für Schwerionenforschung
In this contribution, a new experimental approach to determine the neutron-neutron scattering length is presented. In order to create free neutron pairs, the knockout reactions 6He(p,pα)2n and t(p,2p)2n as well as the charge-exchange reaction d(7Li,7Be)2n are proposed to be measured in inverse kinematics at the RIBF in RIKEN. In a kinematically complete measurement, the momenta and positions of the neutrons are determined using the new high-resolution neutron detector HIME, after they freely scattered off each other. From this information, the spectrum of relative energy of the two-neutron system can be obtained and by comparison to halo EFT calculations the neutron-neutron scattering length can be determined.
