Abstract

We have measured the polarization of D*, the energy dependence of the polarization, and the spin-density matrix of D* in e+e- annihilation at a center-of-mass energy of 29 GeV using the Time Projection Chamber detector at the SLAC storage ring PEP. In 147 pb-1 of data we see no strong evidence for polarization, alignment, or final-state interactions in this fragmentation process.
