Abstract The differential cross sections and the vector and tensor analyzing powers A y , A yy , A xx , and A xz for the d- p elastic scattering were measured at E d lab = 270 MeV over the c.m. angular range from 57° to 138°. The data are compared with a Faddeev calculation. A good description is obtained for all components of the analyzing powers, while a discrepancy of about 30% is found in the cross section around θ c.m. = 120°.
