"Short-Distance Structure of the Nucleus"
 Slideshow (PDF)
One of Jefferson Lab's original missions was to further our understanding of the short-distance structure of nuclei. In particular, to understand what happens when two or more nucleons within a nucleus have strongly overlapping wave-functions; a phenomena commonly referred to as short-range correlations (SRC). I will review recent, Q^2 > 1 [GeV/c]^2 and Bjorken x > 1, (e,e') and (e,e'pN) data that have been used to probe the short-distance structure of the nucleus. New results using a Helium-4 target, which were recently released for publication, will be discussed along with future plans after the energy upgrade of Jefferson Lab.
