Abstract

Among all deuteron observables, the A(q2) structure function plays a special role. Since it is sensitive to the shape of the deuteron wave function it is used as a test for models of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. In the absence of a neutron target, it also provides one of the best possible means for extracting the neutron electric form factor G E n . To a smaller extent, A(q2) is also sensitive to meson exchange currents and relativistic effects. Delineating the effect of all these ingredients is however a difficult task. Part of the difficulty comes from the experimental side. In spite of large number of measurements [l], the medium momentum transfer region is still not accurately known; precise data between q2 = 1 and 18 fm-2 are reported in the present paper.
