Abstract

We report a measurement of the asymmetry in spin-dependent quasielastic scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons from a polarized He-3 gas target. The asymmetry is measured at kinematics sensitive to the transverse-longitudinal response function R(TL'')(Q2, omega). The value of the neutron electric form factor G(E)n(Q2 = 0.16 (GeV/c)2) = +0.070 +/- 0.100 +/- 0.035 is extracted from the asymmetry using a Faddeev calculation of the He-3 wave function.
