The differential cross section and the vector and tensor analyzing powers Ay, Axx, Ayy and Axz were measured for the d-4He elastic scattering at 56 MeV. The measurement of Axz was performed using a deuteron beam polarized in the horizontal plane. An optical-model analysis of the experimental data was carried out. The magnitude of the tensor analyzing powers could not be reproduced without the tensor potential. By including the TR type tensor potential, the optical-model calculations give a reasonable reproduction of the experimental data at θc.m. < 120°. The obtained TR tensor potential was much stronger than that predicted by the folding model. The strength of the real TR potential was roughly in accordance with that obtained from the optical-model analysis of d-4He elastic scattering at 20.2 MeV.
