We propose measuring the Q2-dependence of final-state interactions of recoil protons in quasi-elastic electron scattering from light nuclei as a new method to investigate chiral-and color-coherent effects at intermediate values of Q2 (∼ few (GeV/c)2). Our calculations indicate that such measurements could reveal significant color-transparency effects for the highest of the energies initially available at CEBAF. Measurements that detect more than one hadron in the final state, which require the use of large-acceptance (4π) detectors, are required.
