Novel Physics with tensor polarized deuteron targets

Conference Paper


  • The Jefferson Lab PAC recently approved an experiment which will use an enhanced tensor po- larized solid target. This exciting development holds the potential of initiating a new field of tensor spin physics at JLab. 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 help pin down the polarization of the quark sea.
