Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholar Tyler Kutz, and research team have measured for the first time the EMC effect by tagging spectator neutrons, taking a major step toward solving the mystery.
Two independent studies have illuminated unexpected substructures in the fundamental components of all matter. Preliminary results using a novel tagging method could explain the origin of the longstanding nuclear paradox known as the EMC effect. Meanwhile, authors will share next steps after the recent observation of asymmetrical antimatter in the proton.
“We present results from a new transformative measurement of a novel observable that provides direct insight into the origin of the EMC effect,” said Tyler Kutz, a Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholar at Tel Aviv University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
