With a luminosity of 10scm−2s−1 of polarized electrons incident on a polarized 3He target, one could undertake very fundamental measurements on the neutron in 3He in the quasielastic, resonance, and deep inelastic regions. Using a reasonable choice of indicated running parameters, the running time for an interesting series of measurements in each of these kinematic regions is of the order of 30 days. At Caltech an effort is under way to construct a dense target of polarized 3He. Our immediate goal is to understand the depolarization effects and this should be realized in Summer 1986. It is clear that in each of these kinematic regimes, theoretical calculations are needed in addition to measurements. One of my reasons for talking at this symposium was to inform theorists of our work in the hope of motivating calculations.
