Compton Scattering on Light Nuclei: A Probe for Neutron Polarizabilities

Neutron polarizabilities are an integral part of our mission to understand nucleon structure. However, being chargeless, the neutron has remained elusive. In this discussion, I will focus on Compton scattering on light nuclei (A=2,3) as a viable process to investigate neutron polarizabilities. I will discuss progress in Chiral Perturbation Theory calculations for deuteron and Helium-3 Compton scattering and present recent results.
