The differential cross section and the transverse-transverse interference structure function for the reaction H-2(e,e'p)n have been determined at an np invariant mass of 2.16 GeV. The data, covering a 40 degrees range in the proton emission angle, indicate that Delta excitation and subsequent N Delta interaction is the dominant reaction mechanism. Calculations performed within an N Delta coupled-channel approach reproduce the cross section data, but underestimate the f(TT) results by 30 to 40 percent.
