Neutron electric form factor at large momentum transfer

Based on the recent, high-precision data for elastic electron scattering from protons and deuterons, at relatively large momentum transfer Q(2), we determine the neutron electric form factor up to Q(2) = 3.5 GeV2. The values obtained from the data ( in the framework of the nonrelativistic impulse approximation) are larger than commonly assumed and are in good agreement with the Gari-Krumpelmann parametrization of the nucleon electromagnetic form factors.
