Abstract

We calculate the electric-dipole and magnetic-quadrupole form factors of the deuteron that arise as a low-energy manifestation of parity and time-reversal violation in quark-gluon interactions. We consider the QCD vacuum angle and the dimension-six operators that originate from physics beyond the standard model: the quark electric and chromoelectric dipole moments and the gluon chromoelectric dipole moment. Within the framework of two-flavor chiral perturbation theory, we show that in combination with the nucleon electric dipole moment, the deuteron moments would allow an identification of the dominant source(s) of symmetry violation.
