Abstract: A search for relativistic effects in electron-alkali scattering is currently underway. The A2 spin asymmetry is a direct measure of relativistic effects in the collision process, as it is entirely dependent on the spin-orbit effect. We present measurements of the A2 spin asymmetry for inelastic and elastic scattering of spin-polarised electrons from rubidium, at intermediate energies. Our results indicate that under these collision conditions, relativistic effects are measurable, in qualitative agreement with the available theory.
