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.
