"Simulations and Polarimetry for the PREX-II and CREX Experiments"

Adam Zec , University of Virginia - Physics
[Host: Kent Paschke]

The PREX-II and CREX experiments are both parity-violating electron scattering experiments which seek to probe the weak form factor of the nuclei of 208Pb and 48Ca respectively by measuring an asymmetry between the scattering of left- and right-handed electrons. These experiments seek to constrain models of nuclear theory by measuring the radius of a “neutron skin” in neutron-rich nuclei. There are a number of experimental challenges associated with these very high luminosity, high precision measurements. I will discuss how we will meet these challenges in the upcoming 2019 runs of both experiments.
