Title: High-Precision Studies of the H[number sign] 3e(e,e[sup [prime] ]p) Reaction at the Quasielastic Peak

Abstract

Precision studies of the reaction [sup 3]He( e,thinspe[sup [prime]]p) using the three-spectrometer facility at the Mainz microtron MAMI are presented. All data are for quasielastic kinematics at [vert bar][rvec q][vert bar]=685 MeV/c . Absolute cross sections were measured at three electron kinematics. For the measured missing momenta range from 10 to 165 MeV/c , no strength is observed for missing energies higher than 20thinspthinspMeV. Distorted momentum distributions were extracted for the two-body breakup and the continuum. The longitudinal and transverse nature of the cross sections is well described by a widely used prescription of the off-shell electron-nucleon cross section. The results are compared to modern three-body calculations and to previous data. [copyright] [ital 1999] [ital The American Physical Society]
