    This paper reports high-accuracy cross-section data taken for identical kinematic conditions of the neutron-proton (np) and neutron-neutron (nn) final-state interactions in the 2H(n, nnp) reaction at an incident mean neutron energy of 13.0 MeV. These data were analyzed with rigorous three-nucleon calculations to determine the 1S0 np and nn scattering lengths, anp and ann. Our results are ann = -18.7 ± 0.6 fm and anp = -23.5 ± 0.8 fm. The value obtained for ann in the present work is in agreement with that from π-d measurements but disagrees with values obtained from earlier neutron-deuteron breakup studies.
