Target Fragmentation studies at JLab M.Osipenko in collaboration with L. Trentadue and F. Ceccopieri, May 20,SIR2005, JLab, Newport News, VA CLAS Collaboration
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 2 Plan of Study Semi-inclusive reactions Light mesons ( ) Baryons (p, n, ) target fragmentation current fragmentation current fragmentation target fragmentation fracture functions fragmentation functions Diffraction double moments in pQCD Pomeron structure function separation Low Q 2 ? momentum sum rule
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 3 SI Structure functions Unpolarized cross section is described by four functions: Beam longitudinal polarization asymmetry produces one more structure function: longitudinal polarization of CEBAF beam achieves 85% separation requires a measurement of 5-dimensional cross section
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 4 SIDIS In the Bjorken limit: Current fragmentation Target fragmentation factorization proved factorization is not necessary This mixture is presently studied at JLab
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 5 Longitudinal Momentum ++ p CEBAF beam energy in combination with CLAS acceptance allow to explore current fragmentation for light mesons and target fragmentation for baryons. In DIS Feynman permits to disentangle two regions, however, at small invariant masses W separation is ambiguous. target current 6 GeV beam energy
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 6 Rapidity gap at CLAS Separation of the current and target fragments: Berger criterion ++ p Useful kinematics Exclusive Boundary M X ~M n DIS only! Q 2 =2 GeV 2 W>2 GeV current No kinematical cuts! We have to study entire set of mechanisms.
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 7 New CLAS data Unpolarized Semi-inclusive electroproduction of + has been recently measured with CLAS. For the first time complete 5-dimensional cross sections were extracted. Direct separation of different SI structure functions. x= z= p T = GeV Q 2 = GeV 2 CLAS
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 8 + production results CLAS preliminary results suggest dominance of the current fragmentation mechanism in H 2 down to rather low Q 2 and z values, No significant target fragmentation contribution is found. Q 2 =3 GeV 2 CLAS Q 2 =2.4 GeV 2, x=0.26, z=0.23 CLAS The same p T behavior for all structure functions => trivial kinematical factors for azimuthal asymmetries and H 3 contribution is negative H 4 is mostly positive Suggest only internal transverse motion of quarks (Cahn)? LO QCD prediction given by a product of GRV PDFs and Kretzer FFs saturates experimental data leaving no room for large positive target fragmentation contribution. current

Osipenko 9 Nucleon Semi-Inclusive Possible reactions on the proton: ep e′p′X and ep e′nX current fragmentation target fragmentation GeV 2 JLabHERA Below pp-threshold there is no need for kinematical cuts! Direct access to the fracture functions M(x,z,Q 2 ) and their properties. LT approximation only!

Osipenko 11 Fracture Functions Separation of different fracture functions: M T,M L, M LT etc. related to different structure functions H 1, H 2, H 3 etc. Extraction of various moments and comparison to pQCD Test of diffractive factorization of the fracture functions H 1 and H 2 Rosenbluth separation Contribution of the target fragmentation in the pion electroproduction where
May 20, 2005 M. Osipenko 12 Summary Measured + semi-inclusive electro-production in the JLab region does not show a large target fragmentation contribution suggesting therefore naïve pQCD picture, We are extracting polarized and unpolarized proton and neutron semi- inclusive electroproduction cross sections at highest JLab beam energy 6 GeV: ep e′p′X and ep e′nX TO DO: Comparison of p T dependences to theory (Cahn, Berger, pQCD), Separation different fracture functions M T, M L, M LT etc., Test of diffractive factorization hypothesis, Extraction of the fracture function moments and a comparison to pQCD predictions, Contribution of the target fragmentation in pion SIDIS at JLab.
