Studying Nuclear Effects and Structure Functions at the NuMI Facility Jorge G. Morfín Fermilab NuFact’02 London, July 2002

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 2 What are these Nuclear Effects? F 2 / nucleon within a nucleus changes as a function of A. Nuclear effects measured (with high statistics) in -A not in From low-to-high x Bj go through: shadowing, anti-shadowing, “EMC” effect, Fermi motion.

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 3 Are Nuclear Effects the SAME for and e/ Scattering Shadowing with NOT the same as with charged leptons. t Axial vector component of current t Shadowing off valance quarks different than off sea quarks???? Shadowing separate phenomena from nucleus, has to be put in “by hand”. All such IVB effects are contained in nuclear parton distribution functions (Kumano, Eskola et al.) for parton level interactions. EMC effect can be accounted for in nuclear spectral functions.

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 4 Any Indication of a Difference in Nuclear Effects of Valence and Sea Quarks? Nuclear effects similar in Drell- Yan and DIS for x < 0.1. Then no “anti-shadowing” in D-Y a while “anti-shadowing” seen in DIS (5-8% effect in NMC). Indication of difference in nuclear effects between valence & sea quarks? a hep-ex/9906010

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 5 Nuclear Parton Distribution Functions This quantified by : t K.J. Eskola b et al within LO DGLAP using initial nuclear distributions from CTEQ4L and GRV-LO and assume scale evolution of nuclear parton densities is perturbative. t S. Kumano et al c hep-ph/0103208 plus a talk at this workshop Neutrinos have the ability to directly resolve flavor of the nucleon’s constituents: interacts with d, s, u, and c while interacts with u, c, d and s. b hep-ph/9807297 c hep-ph/0103208

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 6 A Specific Look at Scattering Nuclear Effects Q 2 = 5 GeV 2 S.A.Kulagin has calculated shadowing for F 2 and xF 3 in -A interactions based on a non-perturbative parton model. Shadowing in the low Q 2 (A/VMD dominance) region is much stronger than at higher Q 2.

8
Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 8 Goals in Study of Nuclear Effects with scattering Overall Goal: Measure nuclear effects across full x Bj range in scattering off a variety of targets. Goal: Measure nuclear effects separately for F 2 and xF 3. What are the nuclear effects for valence quarks alone ? Use as input to global nuclear PDF’s Long-term Goal: High statistics scattering experiment on H 2 and D 2 as well as heavy nuclei to extract all six structure functions on nucleons as well as within nuclei.

Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 26 Neutrino Factory: Expected Errors on Measured F’s D 2 Target: r = 50 cm & l = 60 cm. One year exposure. Errors on F 1 better than 10% Assume the Callan-Gross relationship eliminating F 1. Errors now O (1%) or better over most of the x-range.

27
Jorge G. Morfín - NuFact02 - London, July 2002 27 Summary Some nuclear effects are predicted to be different for as compared to e/ scattering. Furthermore, Kulagin predicts nuclear effects different for valance as compared to sea quarks. We need to measure these nuclear effects as well as F 2 and xF 3 off different A targets to extract the nuclear parton distribution functions. NuMI Facility excellent for this purpose. The NuMI beam is Intense: t yielding ≈ 860 K events/ton during MINOS run* yielding ≈ 1.6 M events/ton-year in the he_ -mode. NuMI Near Hall: t space for new detector(s) with w(x) ≤ 6 m, h(y) ≤ 4 m,(sum) L ≈ 25 m. NuMI Near Hall Detector studies underway: t “pure scintillator planes” + planes of A: 3 - 5 ton fiducial volume - cost O($3M) t liquid H 2 / D 2 (bubble chamber): large target technically feasible - safety requirements..? With these detectors and a 1 year he_ and 2 year he_ exposure, we could measure the ratio (A/ D 2 ) of F 2 for x >.01 to better than 10% and ratio of xF 3 for x >.02 to better than 30% (better than 18 % for x >.02).
