The instrumentation in Hall A at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility was designed to study electro-and photo-induced reactions at very high luminosity and good momentum and angular resolution for at least one of the reaction products. The central components of Hall A are two identical high resolution spectrometers, which allow the vertical(More)
A measurement of the electroproduction of photons off protons in the deeply inelastic regime was performed at Jefferson Lab using a nearly 6 GeV electron beam, a longitudinally polarized proton target, and the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer. Target-spin asymmetries for ep→e^{'}p^{'}γ events, which arise from the interference of the deeply virtual(More)
We report the first measurement of the transverse momentum dependence of double-spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive production of pions in deep-inelastic scattering off the longitudinally polarized proton. Data have been obtained using a polarized electron beam of 5.7 GeV with the CLAS detector at the Jefferson Lab (JLab). Modulations of single spin(More)
We have measured cross sections for the γ(3)He → pd reaction at photon energies of 0.4-1.4 GeV and a center-of-mass angle of 90°. We observe dimensional scaling above 0.7 GeV at this center-of-mass angle. This is the first observation of dimensional scaling in the photodisintegration of a nucleus heavier than the deuteron.
We propose to study azimuthal asymmetries in semi-inclusive electroproduc-tion of pions using the JLab 12 GeV polarized electron beam and the CLAS12 detector with an unpolarized hydrogen target. The measurement of the cos 2φ azimuthal moment of the cross section, in particular, will probe the Collins fragmentation function and will also provide information(More)
The beam-spin asymmetries in the hard exclusive electroproduction of photons on the proton (e p-->epgamma) were measured over a wide kinematic range and with high statistical accuracy. These asymmetries result from the interference of the Bethe-Heitler process and of deeply virtual Compton scattering. Over the whole kinematic range (x(B) from 0.11 to 0.58,(More)
Using the base experimental equipment for Hall A, and beam energies of 6.6, 8.8, and 11 GeV, we propose to measure the proton elastic cross section to a statistical precision of better than 1% over a Q 2 range of 7–17.5 GeV 2. A few items of general purpose instrumentation are proposed to ensure that the total uncertainty will be below 2%. The resulting(More)
