Accessing the gluonic structure of light nuclei at the Electron Ion Collider

29 Jan 2020 Mäntysaari Heikki Schenke Björn

We show how exclusive vector meson production off light ions can be used to probe the spatial distribution of small-$x$ gluons in the deuteron and $^3$He wave functions. In particular, we demonstrate how short range repulsive nucleon-nucleon interactions affect the predicted coherent $J/\Psi$ production spectra... (read more)
