Abstract. The "anomalous" scattering of neutrons and electrons from protons in the electron-volt energy range is described, and related experimental results are presented. Due to the very short characteristic scattering time, there is no well defined separation of time scales of electronic and protonic motions. An outline of a proposed theoretical interpretation is presented, which is based on the fact that scattering protons represent open quantum systems.
