Search for Color Transparency in A(e,e'p) at High Momentum Transfer


O'Neill, Thomas Germano (1994) Search for Color Transparency in A(e,e'p) at High Momentum Transfer. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/GBR8-WR49.


Rates for A(e, e'p) on the nuclei 2H, C, Fe, and Au have been measured at momentum transfers Q2 = 1, 3, 5, and 6.8 (GeV fc)2. We extract the nuclear transparency T, a measure of the importance of final state interactions (FSI) between the outgoing proton and the recoil nucleus. Some calculations based on perturbative QCD predict an increase in T with momentum transfer, a phenomenon known as Color Transparency. No statistically significant rise is seen in the present experiment.
