A series of recent experiments at Argonne National Laboratory has shown that sizable polarizations (≈ 30%) exist in the NN system in the medium- and high-energy region[1]. One may infer that in this energy domain spin effects should also be important in the three nucleon system. A contour diagram of the analyzing power of deuterium for polarized protons in the energy range 10 MeV to 1.5 GeV (Fig. 1) exhibits a great deal of structure for incident proton energies above 300 MeV[2]. The region of large positive analyzing powers at backward angles around 550 MeV may be the key in understanding the observed shoulder in the 180° excitation function and the variation in slope of the backward angular distributions in Nd elastic scattering[3].
