We report on a new measurement of the parity-violating asymmetry in quasielastic electron scattering from the deuteron at backward angles at Q2=0.038 (GeV/c)2. This quantity provides a determination of the neutral weak axial vector form factor of the nucleon, which can potentially receive large electroweak corrections. The measured asymmetry A=-3.51+/-0.57(More)
The violation of mirror symmetry in the weak force provides a powerful tool to study the internal structure of the proton. Experimental results have been obtained that address the role of strange quarks in generating nuclear magnetism. The measurement reported here provides an unambiguous constraint on strange quark contributions to the proton's magnetic(More)
Photofission is the process in which a nucleus disintegrates into two daughter products after absorbing a photon. Photofission near threshold in actinides is very similar to spontaneous fission in terms of the number of emitted decay neutrons and their energy distribution. Most of the neutrons are in the ∼2 MeV energy range, and can be efficiently(More)
