Measurements of magnetic elastic electron-deuteron cross sections at q-sq 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, and 12.0 1F-sq. Electric scattering was also observed at these q-sq values, as well as at one additional point q-sq 20.0 1F-sq. An analysis of these data definitely indicates that ahe simple impulse approximation model of the deuteron, incorporating the best possible values for the nucleon form factors, is inadequate to explain the experimental results.
