We propose to measure the parity-violating electroweak asymmetry A P V in the deep-inelastic 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 133 Cs provides important limits on such new(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 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)
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)
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)
We propose to measure the parity-violating electroweak asymmetry A P V in the deep-inelastic scattering of polarized electrons (PVDIS) to high precision in order to search for physics beyond the Standard Model in lepton-quark neutral current interactions. As described in the original document (proposal E09-012), the proposed measurement is unique in that it(More)
Stationary target measurements of the nucleon form factors have been performed with high precision down to Q 2 of ∼ 0.01 GeV 2 for protons (G p E) and down to ∼ 0.1 GeV 2 for neutrons (G n M). Conventional extraction using cross section and polarization measurement cannot be extended to very low values of Q 2 due to inherent experimental limitations. We(More)
