Title: Comparison of Polarization Observables in Electron Scattering from the Proton and Deuteron

Abstract

Recoil proton polarization observables were measured for both the p({rvec e},e{sup {prime}} {rvec p}) and d({rvec e},e{sup {prime}} {rvec p})n reactions at two values of Q{sup 2} using a newly commissioned proton focal plane polarimeter at the MIT-Bates Linear Accelerator Center. The hydrogen and deuterium spin-dependent observables D{sub scr(ll)} and D{sub scr(l)t} , the induced polarization P{sub n} , and the form factor ratio G{sup p}{sub E}/G{sup p}{sub M} were measured under identical kinematics. The deuterium and hydrogen results are in good agreement with each other and with the plane-wave impulse approximation (PWIA). {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}
