Description

Using inclusive DIS cross sections measured with the H1 experiment at HERA, electroweak parameters of the Standard Model are probed. The cross sections were determined using longitudinally polarized lepton beams, which enhances the sensitivity to the vector couplings of the light quarks. The quark couplings and the electroweak mixing angle are probed through the γ/Z interference. This gives access to electroweak parameters in t-channel exchange at virtualities up to 10000 GeV2.
