Abstract

Fermilab E906/SeaQuest is an experiment aimed at studying the anti-quark distributions of nucleons and nuclei. The experiment uses a 120 GeV/c proton beam extracted from the Main Injector at Fermilab to collide with various solid and cryogenic targets to study a variety of physics topics ranging from light anti-quark flavor asymmetry in the nucleon sea to dark photons. The experiment takes advantage of the Drell-Yan process in order to probe specifically the high-x anti-quark distributions of the target nucleus. The acceptance of the spectrometer is tuned to explore the unprecedentedly high Bjorken-x region, thereby extending our knowledge of the anti-quark sea structure of nucleons and nuclei. Some of the physics goals from the Drell-Yan program at SeaQuest and the current status of some analyses are reported in this paper.
