Radiative corrections to the PREX and QWEAK experiments

C. J. Horowitz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The high precision parity violating electron scattering experiments PREX and QWEAK are sensitive to radiative corrections. In this paper we introduce the PREX experiment that measures the neutron radius of 208Pb and discuss coulomb distortion corrections. We then discuss dispersion corrections for QWEAK that aims to measure the weak charge of the proton.
