Precision Studies of the 3-D Structure of the Nucleon via Eelctron Scattering

The main thrust of Prof. Kyungseon Joo’s research program is to study 3-D partonic structure of the nucleon using Jefferson Lab’s 11 GeV polarized electron beam with the CLAS12 detector. 3-D parton distribution functions have been widely recognized as key objects to gain new insights on the QCD-dynamics inside nucleons. This includes generalized parton distribution functions (GPDs) containing information on the transverse spatial distributions of partons, and transverse momentum dependent distribution functions (TMDs) containing the complementary momentum space information. Although the interest in TMDs and GPDs has grown enormously, we are still in need of fresh theoretical and experimental ideas. A precise mapping of the 3-D nucleon structure and a detailed flavor decomposition of 3-D parton distribution functions are the ultimate goals of Prof. Joo’s research program. In this seminar, Prof. Joo will discuss a brief overview of his research program and research opportunities for UConn physics graduate students. He will also discuss international research internship opportunities with J-PARC near Tokyo, Japan and the University of Giessen near Frankfurt, Germany.
