Title: Qweak, N --> {Delta}, and physics beyond the standard model

The data-taking phase of the Qweak experiment ended in May of 2012 at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Qweak aims to measure the weak charge of the proton, Q{sub W}{sup p}, via parity-violating elastic electron-proton scattering. The expected value of Q{sub W}{sup p} is fortuitously suppressed, which leads to an increased sensitivity to physics beyond the Standard Model.
