Physics Division Seminars bring us speakers on a variety of physics related subjects. Usually these are held in the Building 6008 large Conference Room, at 3:00 pm on the chosen day, but times and locations may vary. For more information, contact our seminar chairman,

Inclusive electron scattering has proven to be an exceptional tool for studying short range structure in nuclei. Measurements of the EMC effect (at Bjorken x < 1) are aimed at studying in-medium modification of the nucleon structure functions. On the other hand, inclusive measurements at Bjorken x > 1 focus on short range correlations (SRCs) between nucleons. Recent data on the EMC effect from Jefferson Lab suggest a sensitivity to short range nuclear structure related to NN correlations at x > 1. The high precision results on the EMC effect and the ratios at x>1 have a linear relationship, suggesting a common physics explanation. Results from both experiments will be presented, the meaning of the correlation explored, plans for future measurements will be discussed.
