The polarization transfer in the 4He(e,e′,p)3H reaction was measured over the range of Q2 from 0.5 to 2.6 (GeV/c)2. Results showed that the recoil polarization at the lowest Q2 agreed well with previously reported measurements. The polarization transfer characteristics were found to be only slightly dependent on nuclear structure defects and fine details of the reaction mechanism.
