                   JLab’s Scientific Mission
•   How are the hadrons constructed from the quarks and gluons of QCD?

•   What is the QCD basis for the nucleon-nucleon force?

•   Where are the limits of our understanding of nuclear structure?

     •   To what precision can we describe nuclei?

     •   To what distance scale can we describe nuclei?

     •   Where does the transition from the nucleon-meson to the QCD description
To make progress toward these research goals we must address critical issues in
   “strong QCD”:

     •   What is the mechanism of confinement?

     •   Where does the dynamics of the q-q interaction make a transition from the
         strong (confinement) to the perturbative (QED-like) QCD regime?

     •   How does Chiral symmetry breaking occur?

           JLab Scientific “Campaigns”
The Structure of the Nuclear Building Blocks
1.   How are the nucleons made from quarks and gluons?

3.   How does the NN Force arise from the underlying quark
     and gluon structure of hadronic matter?

                          Andrei Afanasev, Lepton Scattering…
How are the Nucleons Made from Quarks
  and Gluons?
Why are nucleons interacting via VNN such a good approximation to nature?
How do we understand QCD in the confinement regime?

A. What are the spatial distributions of u, d, and s quarks in the hadrons?
     GEp/GMp (3 techniques); GEn (2 expts in Hall C; higher Q2 coming) GMn (Hall A; CLAS to high Q2)

       HAPPEX, G0 forward angle, w/ G0 backward angle & HAPPEX II
       F (new data to 5.75 GeV; w/ future extension at 12 GeV)

B. What is the excited state spectrum of the hadrons, and what does it
   reveal about the underlying degrees of freedom?
       ND (All three halls)          Higher resonances (CLAS : , 0,  production)
       Missing resonance search (CLAS e1 and g1: ,  production
       VCS in the resonance region (Hall A)

C. What is the QCD basis for the spin structure of the hadrons?
       Q2 evolution of GDH integral and integrand for: proton (CLAS) and neutron (Hall A) (w/ low Q2 extensions)
       A1n, g2n w/ 12 GeV follow-on (Hall A)        A1p (Hall C, CLAS)

       Unique New Window into Hadron Structure

                               Unlike GEn, the ss pairs come uniquely from the sea;
                               there is no “contamination” from pre-existing u or d

                                                  S=1/2                         S=1/2

nucleon’s properties

       Parity-Violating Electron Scattering
•   The worldwide program of parity violating
    electron scattering data that constrain the
    contributions of strange quarks to the
    proton’s charge and magnetism at large spatial
    distances (low Q2). The solid ellipse
    represents a fit to the data shown,
    incorporating a theoretical prediction for the
    proton’s axial form factor (GA), which is not
    yet well-constrained experimentally. The
    dashed ellipse incorporates more data at
    shorter spatial distances and removes the
    theoretical constraint on the axial term.

           NN Short Range Correlations
The nucleus can often be approximated as
an independent collection of protons and
neutrons confined in a volume, but for
short periods of time, the nucleons in the
nucleus can strongly overlap. This quantum
mechanical overlapping, known as a
nucleon-nucleon short-range correlation, is
a manifestation of the nuclear strong
force, which produces not only the long-
range attraction that holds matter
together, but also the short-range
repulsion that keeps it from collapsing.

                             Strategy for Exotic Meson Search

•   Use photons to produce meson final states
    •   tagged photon beam with 8 – 9 GeV
    •   linear polarization to constrain production mechanism

•   Use large acceptance detector
    •   hermetic coverage for charged and neutral particles
    •   typical hadronic final states:                          f1   KK     KK

    •   high data acquisition rate

•   Perform partial-wave analysis
    •   identify quantum numbers as a function of mass
    •   check consistency of results in different decay modes

                      Finding an Exotic Wave
An exotic wave (JPC = 1-+) was generated at level of 2.5 % with 7 other
waves. Events were smeared, accepted, passed to PWA fitter.
