Tensor Polarized Solid Target Workshop
March 10-12, 2014
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, VA


The Jefferson Lab PAC recently approved an experiment (E12-13-011) which will use a tensor polarized solid target. This exciting development holds the potential of initiating a new generation of tensor spin physics at JLab12 and for the planned EIC. Experiments which utilize tensor polarized targets can help clarify how nuclear properties arise from partonic degrees of freedom, provide unique insight into short range correlations and quark angular momentum, and also help pin down the polarization of the quark sea. This three day workshop will be focused on tensor spin observables and the associated tensor target development. The workshop goals are to stimulate progress in the theoretical treatment of polarized spin-1 systems, foster the development of new proposals, and to reach a consensus on the optimal polarized target configuration for the tensor spin program.
