Abstract

An experiment to measure gamma-ray asymmetry A(gamma) with a high precision in neutron-proton radiative capture is under construction at LANSCE. The experiment will determine the weak pion-nucleon coupling constant H-pi(1) with an error of 3x10(-7), 30 % of its predicted value. We discuss the experiment and its status.
