Out-of-plane magnetic spectrometers were used to measure two-body currents and relativistic effects of deuteron electrodisintegration. The cross section for the deuteron reaction with unpolarized target was expressed as a function of energy and momentum transfer. An 800-MeV, 1% duty-factor polarized electron beam was used to perform the measurements. Analysis indicated the strong effects of relativity and final-state interactions and importance of two-body meson-exchange currents in the measurements.
