The cross section for the elastic scattering reaction (Formula presented) was measured by the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector using a (Formula presented) decay-at-rest (Formula presented) beam at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. The standard model of electroweak physics predicts a large destructive interference between the charge current and neutral current channels for this reaction. The measured cross section, (Formula presented) agrees well with standard model expectations. The measured value of the interference parameter, (Formula presented) is in good agreement with the standard model expectation of (Formula presented) Limits are placed on neutrino flavor-changing neutral currents. An upper limit on the muon-neutrino magnetic moment of (Formula presented) is obtained using the (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) fluxes from (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) decay. © 2001 The American Physical Society.
