In reality there are several circumstances which disturb these correlations: the registration efficiencies of the detectors are different because of different areas; there is an effect of reflection of UCN from materials which does not depend on the polarization of the neutrons and decreases the efficiency of the polarization analysis; and the analyzing power of the detector depends on the properties of the analyzing ferromagnetic foil.
Licht and his coworkers say that besides besting the solar-to-hydrogen conversion record, their work opens the way to efficiencies not considered possible before.
