1 1 Neutron Transversity at Jefferson Lab Introduction SIDIS measurements at JLab JLab Hall-A neutron transversity experiment Other transverse spin experiments Other planned SIDIS experiments Summary Jian-ping Chen, Jefferson Lab Transversity Workshop, Como, Italy, Sept. 7-10, 2005

2 Introduction/motivation

3 3 Transversity Three twist-2 quark distributions: –Momentum distributions: q(x,Q 2 ) = q (x) + q (x) –Longitudinal spin distributions: Δq(x,Q 2 ) = q (x) - q (x) –Transversity distributions: δq(x,Q 2 ) = q (x) - q (x) Some characteristics of transversity: –δq(x) = Δq(x) for non-relativistic quarks –δq and gluons do not mix Q 2 -evolution for δq and Δq are different –Chiral-odd not accessible in inclusive DIS It takes two chiral-odd objects to measure transversity –Semi-inclusive DIS Chiral-odd distributions function (transversity) Chiral-odd fragmentation function (Collins function)

4 4 Leading-Twist Quark Distributions No K dependence K - dependent, T-odd K - dependent, T-even ( A total of eight distributions)

5 5 Eight Quark Distributions Probed in SIDIS Unpolarized Polarized target Polarzied beam and target S L and S T : Target Polarizations; λe: Beam Polarization Sivers Transversity

H target Simultaneous fit to sin( + s ) and sin( - s ) `Collins moments Non-zero Collins asymmetry Assume q(x) from model, then H 1 _unfav ~ -H 1 _fav Need independent H 1 (BELLE) `Sivers moments Sivers function nonzero ( + ) orbital angular momentum of quarks Regular flagmentation functions

7 7 Collins asymmetry from COMPASS COMPASS 2002-2004 data: ~ factor of 12 in statistics hep-ex/0503002 Transversely polarized 6 LiD target Cover smaller x Consistent with 0

8 8 Current Status Collins Asymmetries - sizable for proton large at high x large for - - consistent with 0 for deuteron - cancellation between p and n? Sivers Asymmetries - non-zero for p+ from proton - consistent with zero all other channels. Fit by Anselmino et al. and other groups Data on neutron at high x complementary and very helpful
