This work presents analysis and results for the NPDGamma experiment, measuring

the spin-correlated photon directional asymmetry in the $\vec{n}p\rightarrow

d\gamma$ radiative capture of polarized, cold neutrons on a parahydrogen

target. The parity-violating (PV) component of this asymmetry

$A_{\gamma,PV}$ is unambiguously related to the $\Delta I = 1$ component of

the hadronic weak interaction due to pion exchange. Measurements in the second

phase of NPDGamma were taken at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)
