New physics can be accessed by scattering polarized electrons from a polarized 3He internal gas target. It is discussed how the asymmetries for the reactions →3He(e, e′), →3He(e, e′p) →3He(e, e′n) →3He(e, e′d) and →3He(e, e′pn) may provide precise information on the S′ and the D-wave parts of the 3He ground-state wave function, the neutron form factors, and the role of spin-dependent reaction mechanism effects. The experiment uses up to 900 MeV (polarized) electrons from the AmPS storage ring in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in combination with large acceptance electron and hadron detectors.
