The protons and neutrons in a nucleus can form strongly correlated nucleon pairs. Scattering experiments, in which a proton is knocked out of the nucleus with high-momentum transfer and high missing momentum, show that in carbon-12 the neutron-proton pairs are nearly 20 times as prevalent as proton-proton pairs and, by inference, neutron-neutron pairs. This(More)
Cross-section values for Compton scattering on the proton were measured at 25 kinematic settings over the range s=5-11 and -t=2-7 GeV2 with a statistical accuracy of a few percent. The scaling power for the s dependence of the cross section at fixed center-of-mass angle was found to be 8.0+/-0.2, strongly inconsistent with the prediction of perturbative(More)
We propose to measure the parity-violating electroweak asymmetry APV in the deepinelastic scattering of polarized electrons (PVDIS) to high precision in order to search for physics beyond the Standard Model in lepton-quark neutral current interactions. Presently, the atomic parity-violation measurement in Cs provides important limits on such new physics,(More)
A massive, but light, Abelian U(1) gauge boson is a well-motivated possible signature of physics beyond the standard model of particle physics. In this Letter, the search for the signal of such a U(1) gauge boson in electron-positron pair production at the spectrometer setup of the A1 Collaboration at the Mainz Microtron is described. Exclusion limits in(More)
PURPOSE Traditional maneuvers aim to decrease retroperitoneal bleeding in hemodynamically unstable multi-trauma patients with unstable pelvic fractures, are reportedly successful in approximately only 50%. The life-saving effect of extra-peritoneal pressure packing (EPPP) is based on direct compression and control of both venous and arterial retroperitoneal(More)
We have measured the neutron spin asymmetry A(n)(1) with high precision at three kinematics in the deep inelastic region at x=0.33, 0.47, and 0.60, and Q(2)=2.7, 3.5, and 4.8 (GeV/c)(2), respectively. Our results unambiguously show, for the first time, that A(n)(1) crosses zero around x=0.47 and becomes significantly positive at x=0.60. Combined with the(More)
We study the ratio R identical with muG_{E}(Q2)/G_{M}(Q2) of the proton at very small values of Q2. Radii commonly associated with these form factors are not moments of charge or magnetization densities. We show that the form factor F2 is correctly interpretable as the two-dimensional Fourier transformation of a magnetization density. A relationship between(More)
We demonstrate, for the first time, the applicability of three-dimensional printing techniques to the manufacture of scintillation detectors. We report on the development of a formulation, usable in stereolithographic printing, that exhibits scintillation efficiency on the order of 30% of that of commercial polystyrene based scintillators. We discuss the(More)
A double polarized measurement of quasi-elastic electron scattering in the 2H(−→e , e′−→n ) reaction is proposed at values of negative four-momentum transfer Q = 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 6.0 (GeV/c). The ratio of electric to magnetic elastic form factors GE/G n M will be extracted from the ratio of transverse and longitudinal components of the spin(More)
In the upcoming polarized beam Hall A experiment the polarization of a detected proton (or deuteron) is measured in the Focal Plane Polarimeter (FPP) installed in the detector stack of the left HRS. As the name implies the FPP measures the polarization components of the detected particle in the focal plane using the coordinate system of the FPP (see 2.4).(More)
