Parity-violating PVDIS with SoLID

6 Scopus citations


An experiment designed to measure parity violation in the deep inelastic scattering of electrons from deuterium by using a novel solenoidal spectrometer (SoLID) has recently been approved at JLab. The main goal of the experiment is to make a precise measurement of the parity-violating coupling of the electron to the axial current of the quark. By covering a broad range of kinematics, the experiment will also search for charge symmetry violation in the structure functions. In addition the experiment is sensitive to di-quarks.
