The first ((e) over right arrow ,e'(p) over right arrow) polarization trans
fer measurements on a nucleus heavier than deuterium have been carried out
at Jefferson Laboratory. Transverse and longitudinal components of the pola
rization of protons ejected in the reaction O-16((e) over right arrow ,e'(p
) over right arrow) were measured in quasielastic perpendicular kinematics
at a Q(2) of 0.8 (GeV/c)(2). The data are in good agreement with state of t
he art calculations.
