Abstract

GONCALVES, V. P.; KUGERATSKI, M. S.  and  NAVARRA, F. S.. Nuclear dependence of the saturation scale and its consequences for the electron-ion collider. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1a, pp.118-121. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332007000100034.

We study the predictions of CGC physics for electron-ion collisions at high energies. The nucleus at high energies acts as an amplifier of saturation effects. We have investigated some observables, using a generalization for nuclear targets of the Iancu-Itakura-Munier model, and our results indicate that the experimental analysis of these observables in the future electron-ion collider could discriminate between linear and saturation physics, as well as constrain the behavior of the saturation scale.

Keywords : Electron-ion collisions; Saturation physics; Color dipole formalism.
