The state of polarization of the recoil nucleus inγ+3He→π°+3He as well as the asymmetry in the differential cross-section when the initial3He is polarized are studied together with the differential cross-section taking into consideration theS, S′ andD-state admixtures in the nuclear wavefunctions. In view of the considerable spin dependence in the photoproduction amplitudes these observables are found to be quite sensitive to the small admixtures ofS′ andD-states in the nuclear wave-functions.
