Parity Violation in Atomic Physics and Neutral Currents

  • C. Bouchiat
Part of the Studies in the Natural Sciences book series (SNS, volume 12)


Using atomic physics experiments as a way to get information about electron-hadron neutral currents seems, at first sight, a hopeless enterprise. It is only for momentum transfer q of the order of a few hundred GeV that the neutral current electron-hadron amplitude Aw can complete with the electromagnetic one AEM.
