Abstract
A rigorous extraction of the deuteron charge form factors from tensor polar ization data in elastic electron-deuteron scattering, at given values of th e ii-momentum transfer, is presented. Then the world data Fur elastic elect ron-deuteron scattering is used to parameterize, in three different ways, t he three electromagnetic form factors of the deuteron in the 4-momentum tra nsfer range 0-7 fm(-1). This procedure is made possible with the advent of recent polarization measurements. The parameterizations allow a phenomenolo gical characterization of the deuteron electromagnetic structure. They can be used to remove ambiguities in the form factors extraction from future po larization data.
