Title: Neutron Structure Function from BoNuS

Abstract

The BoNuS experiment at Jefferson Lab's Hall B measured the structure of the quasi-free neutron via electron scattering off a deuteron target and detection of the slowly recoiling spectator protonat very backward angles. The very low momentum backward recoiling protons were detected by a novel radial time projection chamber featuring gas electron multipliers, augmenting the CLAS detector. Data were taken successfully in the Fall of 2005.
