We measured the analyzing power and the efficiency of a new neutron polarimeter that was designed to measure GEn, the neutron electric form factor. The polarimeter calibration was performed as experiment E377 at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF) with the 14C(p&oarr;,n&oarr;)14N reaction at proton beam energies of 124.0, 164.6, and 199.7 MeV without any shielding material ahead of the polarimeter; in addition, at 164.6 MeV we measured the analyzing power y> with 10 cm of lead, sandwiched between 3.5-cm iron plates, ahead of the polarimeter.
