We have measured the angular distribution of the depolarization parameter Kyy′ in p-15N elastic scattering at 65 MeV. The deviation of Kyy′ from unity is large and indicates the existence of a nucleon-nucleus spin-spin interaction. The DWBA analysis shows that the measured Kyy′ data imply a large contribution from the tensor part of the spin-spin potential.
