A feasibility test of a neutron Compton scattering (NCS) technique was carried out with an eV neutron spectrometer which utilized a pulsed spallation neutron source. The measured NCS spectrum from hydrogen atoms was compared with calculated values which included multiple scattering, geometrical effects and so on. A good agreement was obtained, indicating that the ground state wave function of light atoms in condensed matter can be investigated by means of the NCS technique with this type of eV neutron spectrometer.
