Title: The TMD program at CLAS and CLAS12

Abstract

Transverse-momentum-dependent parton distributions (TMDs) are now recognized as crucial ingredients for a complete understanding of the dynamics of confined partons especially in the non-perturbative regime of QCD. They allow for a 3-dimensional description of the nucleon in momentum space, and could provide insights into the yet unmeasured quark orbital angular momentum. At CLAS several TMDs are explored in Fourier analysis of azimuthal asymmetries measured in semi-inclusive DIS. An overview of the main CLAS results as well as selected CLAS12 projected results is presented.

  • This slideshow presents work on the transverse structure of the nucleon and partonic correlations. Topics include: •Hard scattering processes and correlations between spin and transverse degrees of freedom; •k{sub T}-effects with polarized SIDIS; •Higher twist effects in SIDIS.
  • Many baryon resonances are predicted studying the channels with π, but very few established. This is the so-called "missing resonance" problem. It is important to provide data to investigate the spectrum of baryon (N* and Δ) resonances, with the decay in KY. A comprehensive study of the electromagnetic strangeness production has been undertaken at Jefferson Lab using circularly and linearly polarized photon beam and polarized hydrogen and deuterium target. Recent results in strangeness photoproduction on protons, including cross sections and spin observables, are discussed in this paper, as well preliminary results on photoproduction on bound neutron. Also an overview ofmore » the future perspectives for the 12 GeV upgrade.« less
  • In this paper I will illustrate examples of progress in the five main avenues of nucleon structure research in Hall B at JLab: elastic and resonance transition form factors, polarized inelastic scattering, semi-inclusive meson electroproduction, hard exclusive reactions and non-strange baryon spectroscopy. The 12 GeV machine and detector upgrade will offer an unprecedented opportunity to study all these topics in a broader kinematic domain.
  • Mesons are the simplest quark bound system, being made by a quark and an anti-quark pair. Studying their structure and properties is a fundamental step to reach a deep understanding of QCD. For this purpose both a precise determination of the meson spectrum for conventional states and the search for states beyond the simple qq-bar configurations, as hybrids (qqg) or glueballs, are needed. Finding evidence for these unconventional states would help in understanding some of the open issues in hadronic physics, as how the quarks are confined within hadrons and what is the role of gluons. These topics are presentlymore » studied with the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab and will be studied with the novel CLAS12 experiment after the 12 GeV upgrade of the facility. In my talk I will present the physics program that is presently in progress and the future perspectives.« less
  • In recent years transverse momentum dependent parton distributions and fragmentation functions have been generalized to account for transverse degrees of freedom of quarks inside the nucleon. They offer novel views on QCD dynamics inside hadrons and help to increase our understanding of the intriguing transverse momentum and spin of hadrons. An overview of ongoing TMDs studies in Hall B at Jefferson Lab is given.
