Abstract

New physics can be accessed by scattering polarized electrons from a polarized He-3 internal gas target. It is discussed how the asymmetries for the reactions <(He-3)over right arrow>((e) over right arrow, e''), <(He-3)over right arrow>((e) over right arrow, e''p) <(He-3)over right arrow>((e) over right arrow, e''n) <(He-3)over right arrow>((e) over right arrow, e''d) and <(He-3)over right arrow>((e) over right arrow, e''pn) may provide precise information on the S'' and the D-wave parts of the He-3 ground-state wave function, the neutron form factors, and the role of spin-dependent reaction mechanism effects. The experiment uses up to 900 MeV (polarized) electrons from the AmPS storage ring in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in combination with large acceptance electron and hadron detectors.
