Title: Comment on 'Anomalous neutron Compton scattering from molecular hydrogen'

Abstract

Claims in the paper by Chatizidimitiou-Dreismann et al. [Phys. Rev. B 72, 054123 (2005)] that our analysis of the keV neutron scattering data is incorrect are shown to be wrong. Their analysis neglects the effect of the neutron attenuation in the relatively thick samples, thus creating an artificial anomaly of {approx}21% in the scattering intensity ratio of H{sub 2}O relative to that of D{sub 2}O.
