A polarized internal atomic-hydrogen target and a stored, polarized beam are used to measure the spin-dependent total cross section ΔσT/σtot for p→p→ → pp π0, as well as the polar integrals of the spin correlation coefficient combination Axx − Ayy, and the analyzing power Ay at four bombarding energies between 325 and 400 MeV. This experiment is made possible by the use of a cooled beam in a storage ring. The polarization observables are used to study the contribution from individual partial waves.
