what is nn src
What is NN-SRC?

the phenomena are when the wave functions of the two nucleons are strongly overlapping

why is nn src interesting
Why is NN-SRC interesting?
  • The nuclear shell model can only predict 60% of the spectral function. Long range correlation can only provide a 20% contribution. The short range correlation is believed to contribute the remaining 20%.


Target Mass

L. Lapikas, Nucl. Phys. A553 (1993) 297.

why is nn src interesting1
Why is NN-SRC interesting?
  • The measurement of nucleon momentum distributions for various nuclei yields a similar high momentum tail. Along with the shell model, the existence of NN-SRC pairs within the nuclei is believed to explain this phenomenon.

Why is NN-SRC interesting?
  • The study of the NN-SRCs within the nucleus also provides more insight into cold, dense nuclear matter such as that found in neutron stars.

r(A,3He) = a2n(A)/a2n(3He)

CLAS A(e,e’) data

  • The observed scaling means that the electrons probe the high-momentum nucleons in the 2N-SRC phase, and the scaling factors determine the per-nucleon probability of the 2N-SRC phase in nuclei with A>3 relative to 3He

  • 80 +/- 5% single particles moving in an average potential
    • 60 – 70% independent single particle in a shell model potential
    • 10 – 20% shell model long range correlations
  • 20 +/- 5% two-nucleon short-range correlations
    • 18% np pairs
    • 1% pp pairs
    • 1% nn pairs (from isospin symmetry)
  • Less than 1% multi-nucleon correlations

Working on detectors calibration as of the moment

  • The study of the triple reaction 4He(e,e’pN) will provide the ratio of the np to pp SRC-pairs in the high missing momentum region.
  • The analysis of the semi- inclusive 4He(e,e’N_recoiled) will investigate the possibility of studying the NN-SRCs without detecting the forward knocked-out proton. This will improve the statistics and simplify the future experimenal design.
  • The thorough examination of the cross section for A(e,e’pN), A(e,e’N_recoiled), A(e,e’p) will give an almost complete picture of the dynamics of the contribution from various reaction processes.
  • The analysis should be done in two year period.
