The spin-momentum correlation parameter [Formula presented] was measured for the [Formula presented] reaction for missing momenta up to [Formula presented] at [Formula presented] for quasielastic scattering of polarized electrons from vector-polarized deuterium. The data give detailed information about the deuteron spin structure and are in good agreement with the results of microscopic calculations based on realistic nucleon-nucleon potentials and including various spin-dependent reaction mechanism effects. The experiment reveals in a most direct manner the effects of the [Formula presented] state in the deuteron ground-state wave function and shows the importance of isobar configurations for this reaction.
