Jefferson Lab has new facilities for the 12 GeV era that feature either high luminosity or high acceptance. However, for a number of experiments, especially parity-violating deep inelastic scattering (PVDIS), there is a need for a device that simultaneously provides both large acceptance and high luminosity. The SoLID (Solenoidal Large Intensity Device) spectrometer has been designed to fulfill this need.
In this talk I will discuss the PVDIS physics program with SoLID. This includes both an electroweak test and topics in hadronic physics including higher twist and charge symmetry measurements. Finally, I will describe the SoLID spectrometer design and show how it meets the severe demands of the PVDIS program.
