Exclusive Electron Scattering from Deuterium at High Momentum Transfer


Cross sections are presented for the reaction 2H(e,e′p)n for momentum transfers in the range 1.2≤Q^2≤6.8 (GeV/c)^2 and for missing momenta from 0 to 250 MeV/c. The longitudinal-transverse interference structure function has been separated at Q^2 = 1.2 (GeV/c)^2. The observables are compared to calculations performed in nonrelativistic and relativistic frameworks. The data are best described by a fully relativistic calculation.
