The quest for short-⁠range correlations with electron scattering on nuclei

We give an overview of recent progress made in the description of short-range correlations (SRC) in nuclei. On the experimental side, inclusive A(e,e') and exclusive A(e,e'pN) scattering experiments over the whole nuclear mass range have yielded interesting results about the mass dependence and isospin composition of the nuclear SRC. Especially for the exclusive two-nucleon knockout measurements, theoretical models estimating the effect of final-state interactions (FSI) are indispensable to extract meaningful results from the data. We introduce a model that accounts for these FSI and also discuss a method to count the number of SRC pairs in any nucleus. Comparisons with the existing measurements are made and discussed.
