All three components of the tensor analyzing power for the reaction of π- meson photoproduction on a deuteron have been measured in photon energy range of 280-500MeV and proton energy range of 15-70MeV. The experiment has been conducted on an internal tensor-polarized deuterium gas target of the VEPP-3 electron storage ring using the method of detecting two final protons in coincidence. Measured components of the tensor analyzing power have been compared with calculations results obtained within the framework of diagrammatic approach.
