(for the SoLID Collaboration) With the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV electron beam and the proposed Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID) in Hall A, several newly approved experiments will perform measurements of both the single and double spin asymmetries via semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) from polarized 3He ("neutron") and proton targets. The large acceptance and high luminosity features of the SoLID will enable the extraction of Collins, Sivers, Pretzelosity asymmetries and more with unprecedented precision in multi-dimensional kinematic binning. The measurements from these experiments will also provide important information about the transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions (TMDs). In this talk, we will discuss these experiments followed by an overview of the SoLID instrumentation. New physics opportunities of using the SoLID will be presented at the end.\footnote{This work is supported in part by the U.S. Department of Energy under Contacts No. DE-FG02-03ER41231}.
