invited talk Nucleon Structure


Dr Zhihong Ye (Argonne National Lab)


The Tritium program in Hall A at Jefferson Lab utilized the mirror nuclei, Tritium and Helium-3, to study, in a model independent way, the d/u ratio at high-x, the EMC effect in the A=3 nuclei, probe nucleon-nucleon short-range correlations and their isospin dependence, and to investigate the three-body hyper-nuclear bound-system. By the end of November 2018, four highly rated Tritium experiments have successfully been completed. In this talk, I will introduce the physics motivation of the program, share the experimental details of these experiments, discuss the status of the data analysis and future prospects.
