Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) will enable next-generation experiments in high-energy electron scattering on light nuclei, in which the spectator protons or neutrons emerging from the nuclear breakup are captured using forward detectors. This setup allows for precise measurements of the quark distributions in the neutron and the effects of nuclear binding on the quark/gluon structure. Recent work has developed the theoretical framework for the analysis of such spectator-tagged measurements with the deuteron (the simplest nucleus, consisting of one proton and one neutron) and calculated the effect of final-state interactions on the nuclear breakup pattern at EIC energies.
