Spin-Dependent Inelastic Electron Scattering from Three-Nucleon Bound States

  • Peter U. Sauer
  • R.-W. Schulze


The talk extends the theoretical description1–4 of inelastic electron scattering in plane wave impulse approximation (PWIA) to inclusive processes with polarized electron beams and polarized trinucleon targets. A polarized 3He target is especially interesting as a possible substitute for a neutron spin target5. The notion of a spin-dependent spectral function is introduced6. It is the actual technical back-bone of the calculations. Examples for 3He spin structure functions are given in the region of quasi-elastic scattering. The extension to deep-inelastic scattering is indicated.
