Abstract

Deuteron tensor and vector analyzing powers have been measured for the first time in p-d elastic scattering at 800 MeV proton laboratory energy for a -t range between 0.032 and 1.038 (GeV/c)2. The data provide a very sensitive test of the multiple scattering theory at intermediate energies. The inclusion of the noneikonal correction in the Glauber diffraction theory is essential in the description of the data, especially for -t {greater-than or approximate}0.2 (GeV/c2), where discrepancies of up to 150% are observed with the theory based on the eikonal approximation.
