Preliminary results on semi-inclusive charged pion production in eA
collisions at Ebeam=5 GeV/c2 are presented. These data are thought to be useful for tuning the hadronic production models used in extracting results from current and next-generation neutrino oscillation experiments.
The data were collected using the CLAS detector, which is a multipurpose,
large acceptance, magnetic spectrometer located in Hall B at the Thomas
Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Distributions (integrated and differential) in W, Q2, pion momentum , and pion angle are shown for data produced using
Deuterium, carbon, and iron targets, including radiative corrections. Preliminary comparisons with data simulated using the GENIE generator
Preliminary results on semi-inclusive charged pion production in eA on deuterium, carbon, and iron are shown and compared to the MC prediction of GENIE.
