Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering on the neutron at JLab Hall A

Abstract : Recently a new theoretical framework, the Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs), has been proposed. It unifies form factors and parton distributions within a general description of the non-perturbative structure of the nucleon. GPDs are 4 universal functions H, E, $\tilde{H}$, and $\tilde{E}$ connected to quark correlation amplitudes. Virtual Compton scattering gammaN -> gammaN in the Bjorken limit (DVCS) is the simplest exclusive process which allows access to GPDs. In the 6~GeV energy range, the DVCS process can be investigated with polarized electrons scattering off the proton or the neutron. Jefferson Laboratory E00-110 and E03-106 experiments recently completed data taking in Hall A investigating the DVCS process on the nucleon. The experimental apparatus and methods will be presented and preliminary results will be discussed on the basis of the present analysis status.
