Neutron electromagnetic form factors

Description

Because of the lack of a free neutron target, deuterium targets had been used extensively in studying the neutron structure in the past from unpolarized electron-deuteron scattering experiments. Only recently polarized electron-deuteron scattering measurements have been performed which yield more precise information on the charge form factor of the neutron. The unique spin structure of the {sup 3}He ground state wave function and the recent developments in polarized target technologies have been employed in the last decade or so at all major electron accelerator facilities in experiments probing the neutron electromagnetic structure. In this talk, the author reviews the experimental ... continued below

Only recently polarized electron-deuteron scattering measurements have been performed which yield more precise information on the charge form factor of the neutron.

In this talk, the author reviews the experimental status of the neutron electromagnetic form factor studies. The recently completed Jefferson Lab experiment E95-001, a precision measurement of the neutron magnetic form factor at low Q{sup 2} is discussed, also discussed are some of the future experiments.
