A method of measuring the close to threshold meson production in neutron-ne
utron collisions is described where the momenta of the colliding neutrons c
an be determined with the accuracy obtainable for the proton-proton reactio
n. The technique is based on the double quasi-free nn --> nnX(0) reaction,
where deuterons are used as a source of neutrons. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science
