A complete set of polarization transfer observables has been measured for the 12C(p, n) reaction at Tp = 296MeV and θlab = 0°. The measured polarization transfer observables indicate that the spin-dipole resonance at Ex ≃ 7MeV has greater 2- strength than 1- strength, which is consistent with recent experimental and theoretical studies. The total spin transfer Σ(0°) deduced from the polarization transfer observables indicates a predominance of the spin-flip strength in the continuum. The exchange tensor interaction at a large momentum transfer of Q ≃ 3:6 fm-1 is discussed.
