Testing the Limits of the Single-Particle Model in 16O(e,e'p)

Activity: Examination and supervisionSupervision of licentiate students


This thesis describes a semi-exclusive electron-scattering experiment performed in the autumn of 2001 in Hall A at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab). Electrons were scattered from 16O nuclei provided by a waterfall (H2O) target and detected in coincidence with knocked-out protons in the Hall A High Resolution Spectrometers (HRS). The purpose of this measurement was to study the 16O(e,e'p) reaction in extreme quasielastic kinematics, thereby testing the limits of the Single-Particle Model.
