Abstract : Utilizing a gas target in electron-deuteron and electron-proton scattering, measurements of the ratio of the deuteron to proton form factor, G sub ed/G sup ep, were made within a precision of 0.8 to 1.3 percent for the range of momentum transfers, q squared, from 0.05 to 0.60 inverse Fermis squared and for scattering angles between 60 and 120 degrees. From G sub ep/G sub ep the neutron to proton form factor ratio, G sub en/G sub ep, was extracted utilizing the deuteron structure factor, as calculated from the Feshbach-Loman wave functions, and relativistic corrections.
