Opportunities in Hadron Spectroscopy at the Electron Ion Collider

Location: Zoom

Abstract: Recent observations in heavy-quark spectroscopy have provided numerous candidates for hadronic resonances which are exotic in nature. The Electron Ion Collider (EIC) has the potential to produce such resonances in photoproduction reactions, which would confirm the observations in previous experiments and provide complementary insight into their composition. In this talk I’ll discuss recent work on theoretical models for exclusive production of so-called XYZ states in electron-hadron collisions as well as detector simulations to meet the requirements of such a program at the EIC.
