Structure functions, as measured in lepton-nucleon scattering, have proven to be very useful in studying the quark dynamics within the nucleon. However, it is experimentally difficult to separately determine the longitudinal and transverse structure functions, and consequently there are substantially less data available for the longitudinal structure function in particular. Here we present separated structure functions for hydrogen and deuterium at low four--momentum transfer squared, Q^2< 1 GeV^2, and compare these with parton distribution parameterizations and a k_T factorization approach.

A large set of cross sections for semi-inclusive electroproduction of charged pions ($\pi^\pm$) from both proton and deuteron targets was measured. The data are in the deep-inelastic scattering region with invariant mass squared $W^2$ > 4 GeV$^2$ and range in four-momentum transfer squared $2 < Q^2 < 4$ (GeV/c)$^2$, and cover a range in the Bjorken scaling variable 0.2 < x < 0.

We analyze the possibility of measuring the single spin asymmetry (SSA) in open charm production by linearly polarized photons in the planned E160/E161 experiments at SLAC using the inclusive spectra of secondary (decay) leptons. In leading order pQCD, the SSA in the azimuthal distribution of the charged decay lepton is predicted to be about 0.2 for SLAC kinematics. Read More

The nucleon electromagnetic form factors G_E and G_M are complex quantities in the time-like region. The absolute values can be determined by measuring the angular distribution of the nucleons in e^+ e^- --> N N-bar. The complex phase can only be determined by measuring one or more polarizations of the initial or final state. Read More

We have extracted ratios of cross sections for scattering electrons from high mass targets compared to low mass targets in the region of x ~ 0.02 and Q^2 < 1 (GeV/c)^2 from SLAC experiments performed over the past three decades. Additional analysis was needed for radiative corrections, target end caps and calibration runs. Read More

We compare data on the proton structure function from SLAC experiments in the range of x between 0.7 and 0.97 in and near the resonance region with previous empirical fits to Deep Inelastic Scattering and with calculations from parton distribution functions. Read More

The inclusive A(e,e') cross section for $x \simeq 1$ was measured on $^2$H, C, Fe, and Au for momentum transfers $Q^2$ from 1-7 (GeV/c)$^2$. The scaling behavior of the data was examined in the region of transition from y-scaling to x-scaling. Throughout this transitional region, the data exhibit $\xi$-scaling, reminiscent of the Bloom-Gilman duality seen in free nucleon scattering. Read More
