"Nucleon Spin Physics Program in JLab's Hall C"
The Hall C facility at Jefferson Lab is carrying out an extensive program of
studies on nucleon spin physics, taking advantage of the CEBAF polarized
electron beam and the versatile UVa polarized target. The program started in
2002 with a measurement of the longitudinal and transverse spin structure of the
nucleon resonances in experiment 01-006 (Resonances Spin Structure - RSS) on
proton and deuteron targets. This work is nearing publication of the final
results for the proton, which will be presented. Preliminary results for the
deuteron are available, too. The Spin Asymmetries on the Nucleon Experiment -
SANE (E-03-109) is in preparation to extend the measurements of RSS and other
experiments on the proton to higher momentum transfers. Going beyond inclusive
polarized scattering, the Semi-SANE experiment (E-04-113) will detect scattered
electrons and hadrons in coincidence, to determine the decomposition of the
nucleon spin into its quark flavor components. Both SANE and Semi-SANE are
scheduled to take data in 2008."
