      Abstract

      In order to measure the charge form factor of the neutron, \(G^n_E(Q^2)\), one needs to use a neutron bound in a nuclear target. We calculate the change in the form factor for a neutron bound in \(^3He\), with respect to the free case, using several versions of the quark meson coupling model. It is found that the form factor may be suppressed by as much as 12% at \(Q^2 = 0.5{GeV}^2\) with respect to that of the free neutron.
