Project: Experimental study of the fundamental characteristics of the nucleon, using the electromagnetic probe.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-96 – 31-DEC-01
- A profound understanding of the nucleon characteristics in terms of their constituents is exceptionally important. Using the electromagnetic probe, this problem will be attacked from two sides, studying : - The spin structure of the nucleon : 1. precise determination of the g1 structure function (HERMES) 2. experimental verification of the Gerasimov Drell Hearn sumrule. - The internal nucleon structure, by performing virtual Compton scattering.
