We propose to measure the D(e,e0p)n cross section at Q2 = 3.5
(GeV/c)2 and xbj = 1.30 for missing momenta ranging from pm = 0.5
GeV/c to pm = 1.0 GeV/c expanding the range of missing momenta
explored in the Hall A experiment (E01-020) for the same electron kinematics. At these energy and momentum transfers calculations based on
the eikonal approximation have been shown to be valid and recent experiments indicated that final state interactions are relatively small and
possibly independent of missing momenta. This experiment will provide new data relevant to the study of short range correlations and high
density fluctuations in nuclei. For the proposed experiment we need the
standard Hall A equipment and requests a total beam time of 17.1 days
