Abstract

We report on a measurement of the tensor analyzing power T-20 in elastic electron-deuteron scattering in the range of four-momentum transfer from 1.8 to 3.2 fm(-1). Electrons of 704 MeV were scattered from a polarized deuterium internal target. The tensor polarization of the deuterium nuclei was determined with an ion-extraction system, allowing an absolute measurement of T-20 The data are described well by a nonrelativistic calculation that includes the effects of meson-exchange currents.
