Gluon Saturation in Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering
Using the dipole picture for electron-nucleus deep inelastic scattering (DIS) at small Bjorken x, we study the effects of gluon saturation in the nuclear target on the cross-section for single inclusive DIS. We argue that the sensitivity of this process to gluon saturation can be enhanced by tagging on a hadron which carries a large fraction of the longitudinal momentum of the virtual photon.
