Title: Measurement of the cross sections for inclusive electron scattering in the E12-14-012 experiment at Jefferson Lab

Abstract

The E12-14-012 experiment performed at Jefferson Lab Hall has collected inclusive electron-scattering data for different targets at the kinematics corresponding to beam energy 2.222 GeV and scattering angle 15.54 degrees. Here we present a comprehensive analysis of the collected data, and perform comparisons of the double differential cross sections for inclusive scattering of electrons extracted using solid targets (aluminum, carbon, and titanium) and a closed argon-gas cell. The data cover a wide range of kinematical regimes, in which quasielastic interaction, delta-resonance excitation, and deep-inelastic scattering contribute. The double differential cross sections are reported with high precision (~3%) for all targets over the covered kinematical range.
