Abstract for CEBAF Technical Note 94-001  

This document briefly reviews some of the techniques which have been suggested as candidates for a 10-4 absolute energy determination in CEBAF's Hall A. In September, there were a series of meetings at CEBAF devoted to evaluating these methods with the goal of deciding which ones merit further study. There was a consensus that several methods should be pursued if they appear feasible in order to provide consistency checks on each other. There are currently four methods which are being pursued in Hall A. This document lists technical concerns with each of these methods. The responses of the proponents of the various methods are also included along with subsequent comments and discussion. The document also briefly describes other methods which have been suggested. Finally, this document only deals with the technical aspects of the various techniques and does not address cost issues.
