Maximal Parity violation in Weak interactions. The above generalization suggested two new hypotheses to describe parity violation in CC weak interaction processes: 1) the two-component electron neutrino in 1957 and 2) the CC nuclear interaction involves only left-handed fermions and right-handed antifermions in 1958. [12] The electroweak param-eter of utmost importance in APV experiments is the weak charge Q W, associated with the exchange of the Z0 boson between an atomic electron and the nucleus.

The weak interaction has a coupling constant (an indicator of how frequently interactions occur) between 10 7 and 10 6, compared to the electromagnetic coupling constant of about 10 2 and the strong interaction 's coupling constant of 1; [11] consequently the weak interaction is 'weak' in terms of intensity.
