Title: Weak Neutral Current Studies with Positrons

Abstract

Weak neutral current interactions with charged leptons have offered unique opportunities to study novel aspects of hadronic structure and search for physics beyond the standard model. These studies in the medium energy community have been primarily through parity-violating processes with electron beams, but with the possibility of polarized positron beams, new and complementary observables can be considered in experiments analogous to their electron counterparts. Such studies include elastic proton, deep inelastic, and electron target scattering. Potential positron neutral current experiments along with their potential physics reach, requirements, and feasibility are presented.
