3, where: 1) the neutron wave functions in the quantum states are known; 2) the calculated populations of the quantum states are equal to those measured with the method of two scatterers (this will be described in a forthcoming paper: the first scatterer shapes the neutron spectrum, the second scatterer measures the spectrum after some storage in the quantum states); 3) the zero height is estimated from the experimental data; 4) the difference between the idealized theoretical curve and the experimental results corresponds to a detector spatial resolution as high as [approximately equal to]1.
