                                           We propose a study of nuclear correlations and nucleon

     structure using the electromagnetic probe. Our principle focus in the past has been on few
     nucleon systems and we still intend to study these systems. Short-range nucleon- nucleon
     correlations attributable to the nucleon-nucleon interaction predominate in the light mass
     system. However, in heavier nuclei for shells near the Fermi energy the presence of long-
     range correlations is also indicated. The effect of long-range correlations for these shells is
     best seen in the high momentum components of nucleons in these shells. As will be discussed
latter, short-range correlations have little impact on the high momentum components for shells
near the Fermi energy in large A nuclei. It is also clear that the program to understand nuclear
structure can not be completed without knowledge of nucleon structure and dynamica l
relativistic effects in nuclear structure as well.
         This proposal is a continuation of our ongoing research program in electromagnetic
physics for which we have had NSF support for several years. All of the proposed
experiments will be carried out at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator facility
(TJNAF). CSLA is an urban university situated in the middle of the predominantly Hispanic
and Asian East Los Angeles community. Our large Hispanic population qualifies CSLA as a
Hispanic Serving Institution. CSLA has strong programs in the sciences with particular
emphasis on providing undergraduate research opportunities. The highest degree offered is the
MS/MA. The proposed program will continue the efforts of our group to provide a high
quality research environment for a student population that traditionally does not have access to
such opportunities. This will be done with extensive outreach programs to neighboring high
schools and high school teachers.
