Project: Experimental verification of the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn sum rule.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-95 – 31-DEC-99
- The GDH sum rule establishes a connection between the spin structure of the nucleon and its static properties. To check this sum rule, an international collaboration will perform an experiment at the electron accelerators in Bonn and Mainz. A threshold Cerenkov detector will be built in Ghent as part of the detector setup. The analysis of the data will also be performed in Ghent.
