We have measured the polarization of neutrons produced from the reaction pd→n↘ at a laboratory angle of 20° at an incident proton kinetic energy of 800 MeV. For the highest energy neutron peak at ∼665 MeV, as well as for the broad pion production peak at ∼325 MeV, the neutron polarization has been found to be ∼0.20. The measured polarization for the quasielastic process has been found to be in good agreement with the free np analyzing power measurements. Such a polarized neutron beam, having a broad spectrum of momenta from 800 to 1300 MeV/c has been used at LAMPF for free np spin correlation measurements.
