A novel method to extract the neutron-electron scattering length b ne from the precise neutron scattering data measured for a noble gas at several different densities n is proposed. The main point of this method is dividing the experimental data into two parts: the first, nearly proportional to n, corresponding to diffraction on neighboring atoms and the second one, a small contribution of n, e scattering independent on n. The proposed technique is demonstrated using the structure factor S(q) for gaseous krypton.
