The nucleon-nucleon (NN) potential has a strong repulsive core. When a two-nucleon (sub)system falls into this range, they will interact strongly at short distance, and move away from each other with momenta above the Fermi level. This is called the NN Short-range Correlations (SRCs).
Previous experiments reported a neutron-proton pair (isosinglet) dominance in high-momentum nucleons. In inclusive electron scattering, this np dominance will cause a scaling behavior of cross sections at 1.4
