The Pion-Nucleon coupling constant from np charge exchange scattering

Abstract : A novel extrapolation method has been used to deduce the charged Pion-Nucleon coupling constant from backward $np$ differential scattering cross sections. We applied it to new measurements performed at 162 MeV at the The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala. In the angular range $150^\circ-180^\circ$, the carefully normalized data are steeper than those of most previous measurements. The extracted value, $g^2_{\pi^\pm} = 14.52 \pm 0.26$, in good agreement with the classical value, is higher than those determined in recent nucleon-nucleon partial-wave analyses.
