Abstract: C01.00002 : Quarks in the Nucleus - Recent Results and Future Measurements at Jefferson Lab*
2:30 PM–3:00 PM
Results from the 6 GeV Jefferson Lab program showed that the EMC Effect appears to depend on the local, rather than average, nuclear density. In addition, it was found that a seemingly unrelated quantity, the number of protons and neutrons found to be in a correlated pair in the nucleus (Short Range Correlations), shares the same nuclear dependence as the EMC Effect.
In this presentation I will review the Jefferson Lab 6 GeV measurements that provided exciting hints as to the origin of the EMC Effect and its connection with Short Range Correlations. In addition, I will discuss the program of measurements planned as part of the 12 GeV program that will further explore this EMC-SRC connection and provide crucial insight into the role of quarks and nucleons in the nucleus.
