We report in this thesis the simultaneous measurement of the logitudinal- transverse response functions, fLT and fLT', and the transverse-transverse response function fTT of the deuteron. The quasi-elastic ²H(e̳, e'p) experiment reported here was conducted at the MIT/Bates Linear Accelerator Center in February, 1997. The experiment was carried out with a 40% polarized, 800 MeV electron beam. The measurement took place in the Bates South Hall using the One Hundred Inch Proton Spectrometer(OHIPS) as the electron spectrometer. It was placed at an angle of 37.270 and the energy transfer, w, was set for quasi-elastic kinematics with the square of the four-momentum transfer, Q2, equal to -0.22 (GeV/c) 2 . Three out-of-plane proton spectrometers (OOPS) were positioned at ... . This allowed the simultaneous measurement of fLT, fTT and fLT' at a central missing momentum of - 200 (MeV/c). The measured asymmetries, cross sections and response functions are compared with different theoretical models.
