12 GeV Upgrade
The last of the six Region 3 Drift Chamber sectors for CLAS12 have been installed into the Torus magnet. The six Region 1 Drift Chamber sectors and the six Region 2 Drift Chamber sectors were installed into the Torus magnet previously. Work is proceeding to wire up the low-voltage and high-voltage supplies for these detectors and to prepare the manifolds for the chamber gas. The work on the slow controls for all the drift chamber systems is also nearing completion, in preparation for system testing next month.

A new paper presents a detailed examination of the kinematical requirements needed for the factorization theorem for semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering processes to be valid. The current-region factorization is found to be valid only in a rather restricted range of kinematics, particularly for moderate hard scales. Different kinematical regimes that require new factorization theorems are also identified, and it is argued that the rapidity of the produced hadron is preferred over the usual z parameter for delineating different kinematical regimes.
For the past few weeks, the Alignment group has been working on the following project.
The Magnet Measurement group completed and assisted on the mapping of Hall B's Torus magnet. Additionally, the group is looking at improving the reliability of the magnet measurement stands and inventory of spare magnets and coils.
