Abstract / Description of output

A study of the reaction C(e, e′ p) B in parallel kinematics has been made for the missing-momentum region 250 <p <310 MeV/c at incident energies of 379 and 585 MeV. A Rosenbluth separation of the cross sections was carried out to extract the longitudinal and transverse structure functions W and W . Calculations that include meson-exchange currents and isobar currents are seen to describe the data better than those using a one-body current only. For the first time, a comparison between the C(γ, p) cross section and the transverse part of the C(e, e′ p) cross section has been made versus an effective momentum that is defined in such a way as to minimize effects due to differences in final-state interactions. This comparison suggests that it may be possible to describe both reactions in one consistent framework if two-body currents are included.
