Title: Study of 4He(e, e'p) 3H through the (e, e'p) reaction at Q 2 = 2(GeV/c) 2 and x b = 1.24

The structure and dynamics of 4He can be studied through 4He(e,e'p) coincidence measurements at high momentum transfers. Using the Hall A high resolution spectrometers and a cryogenic 4He target, the SRC (short range correlation) and E08009 experiments held at Jefferson Lab in April 2011 measured the entire range of missing momentum from 0.0 GeV/c to 0.9 GeV/c. The observables of interest in this experiment (E08009) are the missing energy and missing momenta for producing the triton ( 3H) ground state. This thesis concentrates on missing momentum values of 153 and 353 MeV/c. Cross sections are calculated and compared to theory.
