Extraction of neutron structure from tagged structure functions
Abstract
We present work in a model used to describe semiinclusive deep inelastic scattering off the deuteron. The model uses the virtual nucleon approximation to describe the interaction of the photon with the bound neutron and the generalized eikonal approximation is applied to calculate the finalstate interaction diagram. Comparison with data taken at Jefferson Lab shows good agreement in the covered range of kinematics and points at a largely suppressed offshell rescattering amplitude. The W and Q^{2} dependences of the total cross section and slope factor of the interaction of DIS products, X, off the spectator nucleon are extracted. Starting from the JLab data and our model calculations, we outline and apply an extrapolation method to obtain the neutron structure function F_{2N} at high Bjorken x.
