## Abstract

A complete set of polarization transfer coefficients has been measured for quasielastic [Formula Presented] reactions on [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] at a bombarding energy of 346 MeV and a laboratory scattering angle of [Formula Presented] The spin-longitudinal [Formula Presented] and spin-transverse [Formula Presented] response functions are extracted within a framework of a plane-wave impulse approximation with eikonal and optimal factorization approximations. The theoretically expected enhancement of [Formula Presented] is not observed. The observed [Formula Presented] is consistent with the pionic enhanced [Formula Presented] expected by random-phase approximation (RPA) calculations. On the contrary, a large excess of the observed [Formula Presented] is found in comparison with [Formula Presented] of the quasielastic electron scattering as well as of RPA calculations. This excess masks the effect of pionic correlations in [Formula Presented] The theoretical calculations are performed in a distorted-wave impulse approximation with RPA correlations, which indicates that the nuclear absorption effect depends on the spin direction. This spin-direction dependence is responsible in part for the excess of [Formula Presented]
