    Abstract

    The electron-momentum-neutron-spin correlation coefficient was found to be A=-0.115±0.008, and the antineutrino-momentum-neutron-spin correlation coefficient was found to be B=1.00±0.05. The value of A leads to |GA/GV|=1.26±0.02 for the ratio of Gamow-Teller-to-Fermi coupling constants in β decay, and B is consistent with zero scalar or tensor interaction.
