Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering at Future Electron-Ion Colliders


The study of hadronic structure has been carried out for many years. Generalized parton distribution functions (GPDs) give broad information on the internal structure of hadrons. Combining GPDs and high-energy scattering experiments, we expect yielding three-dimensional physical quantities from experiments. Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) process is a powerful tool to study GPDs. It is one of the important experiments of Electron Ion Collider (EIC) and Electron ion collider at China (EicC) in the future. In the initial stage, the proposed EicC will have 3∼53 \sim 5 GeV polarized electrons on 12∼2512 \sim 25 GeV polarized protons, with luminosity up to 1∼2×10331 \sim 2 \times 10^{33}cm−2^{-2}s−1^{-1}. EIC will be constructed in coming years, which will cover the variable c.m. energies from 30 to 50 GeV, with the luminosity about 1033∼103410^{33} \sim 10^{34}cm−2^{-2}s−1^{-1}. In this work we present a detailed simulation of DVCS to study the feasibility of experiments at EicC and EIC. Referring the method used by HERMES Collaboration, and comparing the model calculations with pseudo data of asymmetries attributed to the DVCS, we obtained a model-dependent constraint on the total angular momentum of up and down quarks in the proton.Comment: 12 pages, 18 figures, 3 Table
