Publication Abstract: Experiment E94-010 investigated the spin structure of the neutron and ^3He at Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, VA. Longitudinally polarized electrons of incident energy from 0.9 GeV to 5.0 GeV were scattered from a high pressure polarized ^3He target in experimental Hall A. ^3He was used as an effective neutron target, taking advantage of the approximate cancellation of the two spin-paired protons in the ^3He ground state. Longitudinal and transverse target polarization were maintained, allowing a precision determination of both spin structure functions g1(x,Q^2) and g2(x,Q^2). The structure functions were extracted from an inclusive polarized cross section measurement at low momentum transfer (0.1
