Inelastic neutron scattering has been used to determine the dynamic spin fluctuations in an underdoped high-temperature superconductor single crystal. The magnetic resonance, that occurs around 40 meV in overdoped samples, is shifted to a lower energy, . A constant ratio, , almost independent of the doping level, is found. According to numerous theoretical approaches, this finding supports the idea that the resonance energy is proportional (approximately twice) to the superconducting gap.
