Inclusive double spin asymmetries have been measured in [special characters omitted] using the CLAS detector and a polarized [special characters omitted] target at. Jefferson Lab in 1998. The goal of these measurements is to study the spin structure of the deuteron and the neutron in the low Q2 transition region between the real photon point, where the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn (GDH) sum rule is expected to be satisfied, and the deep inelastic scattering limit. The analysis and the results for virtual photon asymmetries, the spin structure function [special characters omitted] and its first moment within a Q2 range of 0.2 GeV2 to 1.2 GeV2 are discussed in this dissertation.
