Dear CLAS collaborators,

Congratulations to the BONuS group for having their paper accepted for 
publication in Phys Rev C.

Best wishes,

Who says the news these days have to ALWAYS be grim… Looks like the very
excruciating Collaboration review process has paid off!

Although, in fairness, I have to say that we already got a list of
editorial changes that we'll have to work on - so we're not completely
done yet.

Greetings - Sebastian

> The paper is a comprehensive description of the measurement of the
> structure function of the neutron in the deuteron using spectator
> tagging. For a partonic interpretation, the data have been taken at
> the relatively low beam energies of about 2, 4, and 5 GeV at Jefferson
> Lab. Thus, most of the invariant mass region is affected by the
> nucleon resonance excitation. However, with the upgrade, the
> measurement can be extended well into a region where the partonic
> description is valid. Further, measurement of tagged structure
> functions would be a major program at a future electron-ion collider.
> Thus, I find the work to be important, timely, and of high quality.
> The description of the Radial TPC is complete and informative. The
> analysis of the data is thorough and straightforward to follow. The
> use of two complementary analysis methods gives confidence in the
> ultimate result. I was impressed by the care with systematic
> uncertainties. 12.5% (8.7%) point-to-point systematic uncertainty in
> the structure function (ratio of structure functions) seems reasonable
> to me. The study of the ratio of experiment to simulation vs. θpq
> showed variation that was interpreted as due to FSI and target
> fragmentation effects.
> Figure 19 shows the determination of the neutron structure function
> Fn2 in the DIS region from this work. The data agree well with
> existing PDF parametrizations.
> This paper impressed me with its content and the great care with the
> analysis of the data. It describes in detail a new experimental
> technique, one that will likely be used and developed in the future. I
> recommend that the paper be accepted for publication.
