Title: Unveiling the nucleon tensor charge at Jefferson Lab: A study of the SoLID case

Abstract

Here, future experiments at the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade, in particular, the Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID), aim at a very precise data set in the region where the partonic structure of the nucleon is dominated by the valence quarks. One of the main goals is to constrain the transversity quark distributions. We apply recent theoretical advances of the global QCD extraction of the transversity distributions to study the impact of future experimental data from the SoLID. Especially, we develop a model-independent method based on the hessian matrix analysis that allows to estimate the uncertainties of the transversity quark distributions and their tensor charge contributions extracted from the pseudo-data for the SoLID. Both u and d-quark transversity distributions are shown to be very well constrained in the kinematical region of the future experiments with the proton and the effective neutron targets.

  • With high luminosity 6 GeV electron beam, Jefferson Lab (CEBAF)'s study of the nucleon structure is focused on the regime of strong interaction QCD. Highlights are shown on the study of the nucleon form factors, the spin structure, and the nucleon resonances. Selected new results are presented. Future upgrade to 12 GeV is briefly discussed.
  • High statistics measurements of inclusive nucleon resonance electroproduction cross sections have been performed in Hall C at Jefferson Lab. The invariant mass range 1{lt}W{sup 2}{lt}4GeV{sup 2} was probed for four-momentum transfer values between 0.5 and 4.0 (GeV/c){sup 2} for both liquid hydrogen and deuterium targets. The cross sections will be used in conjunction with existing deep inelastic and elastic data for precision experimental tests of parton-hadron (Bloom-Gilman) duality in the nucleon structure functions. Preliminary results of such testing is discussed. The data are additionally being analyzed in order to study resonance transition form factors, in particular to compare proton andmore » neutron resonance cross sections. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}« less
