    High-accuracy differential cross-section data for neutron-deuteron elastic scattering at centre-of-mass backward angles in the range from 140° to 178° have been measured to accuracies better than ±3% for incident neutron energies of 8.0, 10.0, and 14.0 MeV. The measurements were made by detection of the recoil deuterons and protons from a mixed CD2-CH2 foil. The new data are compared to existing data and to three-nucleon calculations with the Bonn-B nucleon-nucleon potential. We conclude that the present measurements unambiguously resolve the discrepancies among previously reported data of the same type. © 1994 Springer-Verlag.
