Analyzing powers and differential cross sections for p-d elastic scattering have been measured at 64.8 MeV. The angular distributions cover center-of-mass angles between 8° and 169°. The relative uncertainties of the analyzing power measurement are typically ± 0.005 at c.m. angles less than 80° and are in general ± 0.015 at the remaining angles. The absolute scale of the analyzing power measurement has an uncertainty of ± 0.013. The data are compared with three-body calculations based on the Faddeev theory. In contrast with the differential cross sections, the analyzing powers could not be reproduced without the D-wave nucleon-nucleon interactions.
