    GPDs and DVCS with Positrons

    Full text link
    The beam charge asymmetry helps to isolate the real part of the deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS) amplitude. It is discussed what information can be gained both from the real and imaginary part of the DVCS amplitude.Comment: 5 pages, 2 figures, invited talk at `Workshop on Positrons at Jefferson Lab

    New measurement of charge asymmetry xF3x{F}_3 from HERA

    After presenting the recent measurements of neutral current cross section in DIS at HERA, we explain the effect of the γ−Z0\gamma-Z_0 interference at the electro-weak scale, visible on these data. Then, the beam charge difference xF3x{F}_3 is measured and the interference itself is extracted. Results are discussed in the context of perturbative QCD.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures, proceedings of the International Workshop on Positrons at Jefferson Lab (March 25-27, 2009), Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Newport News, V

    Two-photon exchange measurements with positrons and electrons

    Full text link
    Two-photon exchange contributions have potentially broad ranging impact on several charged lepton scattering measurements. Previously believed to be extremely small, based in part on comparisons of positron scattering and electron scattering in the 1950s and 1960s, recent data suggest that the corrections may be larger than expected, in particular in kinematic regions that were inaccessible in these early positron scattering measurements. Additional measurements using positron beams at Jefferson Lab would allow for a detailed investigation of these contributions in a range of reactions and observables.Comment: 6 pages, proceedings from the International Workshop on Positrons at Jefferson Lab (JPOS09), Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA, March 25-27, 200
