The double differential cross sections for θlab between 0.0° and 14.7° and the polarization transfer coefficient DNN(0°) for the 27Al(p, n) reaction have been measured at a bombarding energy of 295 MeV. A multipole decomposition technique is applied for the cross section data to extract L = 0, 1, 2, and 3 contributions. The Gamow-Teller (GT) strength B(GT) deduced from the L = 0 contribution is compared with the B(GT) values calculated in a full sd shell-model space. The sum of B(GT) values up to 20 MeV excitation is Sβ = 4.0 ± 0.1 ± 0.1. A fairly large L = 0 contribution is observed in the continuum region up to 50 MeV, which could be in part ascribed to the quenched GT strength. A limit on the effect that the Δ(1232)-isobar nucleon-hole admixture has upon the GT strength is estimated.
