Future Jefferson Lab experiments, in particular those with the Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID), aim at very precise data in the region where the partonic structure of the nucleon is dominated by the valence quarks, for example, to constrain the quark transversity distributions. A new analysis applies recent theoretical advances in the global QCD extraction of the transversity distributions to study the impact of future experimental data from the SoLID experiments. A simple strategy is developed, based on the Hessian matrix analysis, that allows one to estimate the uncertainties of the transversity quark distributions and their tensor charges from SoLID data simulation.

In addition, various small machining jobs are in progress for lab customers.

Reporting Electric Shock
The reason Jefferson Lab asks you to report incidences of electric shock that you experience while working on or using equipment, is because no matter how minor, a direct exposure to electricity can result in a variety of consequences to a body. For example, electric currents can travel through the nervous system and burn out tissue in patches along the way, often making it difficult to immediately identify an injury.
