Precise Measurement of the Transverse Asymmetry in Quasielastic 3He(e, e′) and the Neutron Magnetic Form Factor

Conference paper
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 12)


We have measured the transverse asymmetry AT′ in 3He(e, e′) quasielastic scattering with high statistical precision for Q2-values from 0.1 to 0.6 (GeV/c)2. The data are expected to allow extraction of the neutron magnetic form factor G M n with an uncertainty similar to that of recent experiments on deuterium. Data analysis is currently in progress.
