Abstract:

The purposes of the present work are 1 To investigate the method of elastic electron-deuteron scattering by detection of the recoil target nucleus. 2 To evaluate existing theory for the scattering process in light of the recent advances in understanding nucleon structure and the nuclear force. 3 To provide experimental data at values of the momentum transfer where none had previously existed. Some fundamental preliminary considerations are discussed in Chapter II. Chapter III contains a summary of theoretical aspects of the problem and results of calculation. Some basic experimental questions are answered in Chapter IV. In Chapter V the experimental apparatus is described. The data, method of analysis, and corrections are discussed in Chapter VI. In the last chapter a comparison of the experimental results with theoretical predictions is made, and conclusions and suggestions for further work are given.
