Short-Range Correlations in nuclei


Short-range correlated (SRC) nucleon pairs are a vital part
of the nucleus, accounting for almost all nucleons with
momentum greater than the Fermi momentum (k​F​ ). A
fundamental characteristic of SRC pairs is having large
relative momenta, and smaller center-of-mass momenta as
compared to k​F​ . Knowledge of the c.m. momentum is
essential for understanding the formation mechanism of
SRC pairs. I will report on the extraction of SRC c.m.
motion from measurements of the A(e,e’pp) reaction at
Jefferson Lab.
