Abstract

We describe the first measurement of the spin dependence of the reaction: μ- + 3He + 3H + vμ. This spin dependence is quite sensitive to the induced pseudoscalar form factor, Fp, a piece of the weak charged nuclear current of 3He about which, experimentally, relatively little is known. The data are presently being analyzed and we plan to quote a number for Fp shortly.
