Extraction of neutron structure from tagged structure functions

Abstract
We present work in a model used to describe semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering off the deuteron. The model uses the virtual nucleon approximation to describe the interaction of the photon with the bound neutron and the generalized eikonal approximation is applied to calculate the final-state interaction diagram. Comparison with data taken at Jefferson Lab shows good agreement in the covered range of kinematics and points at a largely suppressed off-shell rescattering amplitude. The W and Q2 dependences of the total cross section and slope factor of the interaction of DIS products, X, off the spectator nucleon are extracted. Starting from the JLab data and our model calculations, we outline and apply an extrapolation method to obtain the neutron structure function F2N at high Bjorken x
