Description

The experimental technique of parity-violating electron scattering has been used for over four decades as a tool to study a variety of physics topics. They include sensitive tests of the electroweak Standard Model as probes for new physics, determination of the contribution of the strange quark sea to the nucleon's electromagnetic properties, and measurements of the neutron distributions in nuclei. This talk will review the highlights in this area over the past decade and the expectations for the coming decade.
