Based on the recent, high-precision data for elastic electron scattering from protons and deuterons, at relatively large momentum transfer Q2, we determine the neutron electric form factor up to . The values obtained from the data (in the framework of the nonrelativistic impulse approximation) are larger than commonly assumed and are in good agreement with the Gari-Krümpelmann parametrization of the nucleon electromagnetic form factors.
