Abstract

Measurements of Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) give access to Generalised Parton Distributions (GPDs) which provide a 3D image of the nucleon and carry information on the composition of its spin. Data from both proton and neutron targets is highly desirable for an extraction of all GPDs and to allow their flavour-decomposition. Although a number of measurements have been made on proton targets, data on the neutron is almost non-existent. We present preliminary results in the extraction of beam-spin asymmetry in neutron DVCS from CLAS and the proposed experimental programme with CLAS12 at Jefferson Laboratory.
