Parity violation has played an important role in electron scattering since the 1970’s when the first experiments were performed at SLAC. Since the late 1980’s the focus of experiments has shifted from probing the neutral weak interaction itself to using the exchange of a Z-boson to access new information about the structure of hadrons. A brief survey of experiments that investigate this physics is presented, with a focus on the recently completed SAMPLE experiment at the MIT-Bates Laboratory. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    It is shown that the introduction of the resonance phase for two quasistationary states with the same spin and opposite parities allows one to gain agreement between the theory and the observed signs of P-odd and P-even effects in neutron reactions. The joint description of these effects makes...

    The anapole moment is a parity-odd and time-reversal-even electromagnetic moment. Although it was conjectured shortly after the discovery of parity nonconservation, its existence has not been confirmed until recently in heavy nuclear systems, which are known to be the suitable laboratories...

    Effects of weak nucleon interaction are calculated for the ground-state doublet of 5/2[sup ±] levels of the strongly deformed nucleus [sup 229]pa[sub 91]. A parity-nonconservation effect in the doublet states can be observed in the conversion spectrum for the isomeric transition between the...

    The TRIPLE Collaboration has performed measurements of the helicity dependence of the neutron resonance cross section for many nuclides. More than 70 statistically significant parity violations have been observed. Generic enhancements amplify the signal for symmetry breaking and the stochastic...
