Reaction deuteron n n o: Parity of the Neutral Meson

Abstracts
The branching ratio between the capture reactions deuteron 2n o and deuteron 2n been determined to be < 0.10%. Comparison with the previously measured branching ratio between the corresponding processes in hydrogen provides strong evidence for pseudoscalar o parity.
