Project: Virtual compton scattering from the nucleon.

project duration
01-JAN-96 – 31-DEC-99
The question 'How are hadrons (nucleons and mesons) and nuclei being built up from quarks and gluons?' has until now, not received a satisfying answer. An important contribution to this issue can be supplied by the experimental study of the Virtual Compton Scattering process from the nucleon : the results yield the so-called polarizabilities which can be directly interpreted in terms of the internal quark structure of the nucleon.
