"Elastic Electron Deuteron Scattering: Past, Present and Future"
This talk will present a review of elastic electron scattering
off the simplest nucleus, the deuteron. The elastic
scattering process has long been a crucial tool in understanding
the internal structure and dynamics of the nuclear two-body
system. Studies of the deuteron form factors, measured in
elastic scattering, offer unique opportunities to test both the conventional meson-nucleon "standard model" that describes the
deuteron electromagnetic structure, and "nuclear chromodynamics"
predictions of perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics based on the
underlying quark-gluon substructure of the deuteron.
A review of both the theoretical framework and of past (SLAC) and recent
(JLab) measurements of the deuteron form factors will be presented
