Differential cross-sections for pp elastic scattering in the transfer momentum range 2 x 10 −3 ⩽ | t | ⩽ x 8 10 −3 (GeV/ c ) 2 were studied with a hydrogen filled ionization chamber which was used as a target and as a detector of the recoiled protons. The measurements have been done at P lab . = 1.11 GeV/ c , 1.28 GeV/ c , 1.34 GeV/ c , 1.40 GeV/ c and 1.70 GeV/ c . The real part of the spin independent forward scattering amplitude has been determined, the results being in agreement with the dispersion relation calculations.
Absolute differential cross sections for pp elastic scattering have been measured at kinetic energies of 648, 746, 795, 843, 892, 942 and 992 MeV and for momentum transfer 0.006 < z . sfnctz . sfnc <0.040 (GeV/ c ) 2 . Both scattered and recoil protons were detected in coincidence. The slope parameters of the diffraction cone and the contribution of the spin-spin amplitudes to forward elastic pp scattering were determined.
