High Proton Momenta and Short Range Nucleon-Nucleon Correlations in a 3He(e,e′p) Experiment
Electron scattering cross sections for the 3He(e,e′p) reaction have been measured for recoil momenta between 300 and 600 MeV/c and up to 90 MeV missing energy. The proton momentum distributions in 3He have been obtained in Plane Wave Impulse Approximation (PWIA) from 318 to 600 MeV/c for the pd channel and from 290 to 515 MeV/c for the ppn channel and are corrected for interaction effects. The ppn continuum exhibits a clear evidence for short-range nucleon-nucleon correlations.
