Electron beam polarimeter and energy spectrometer

: The backscattering of laser radiation by a relativistic electron beam is a widely used method for measuring the spin polarization of electrons. We consider again the properties of the scattering

Preliminary Results from Integrating Compton Photon Polarimetry in Hall A of Jefferson Lab

A wide range of nucleon and nuclear structure experiments in Jefferson Lab's Hall A require precise, continuous measurements of the polarization of the electron beam. In our Compton polarimeter,

The MIT-Bates facility is pursuing a vigorous spin physics program in its 1 GeV electron storage ring. The combination of polarized beams, polarized internal targets and a large acceptance

A toy Monte Carlo simulation for the transverse polarization of high-energy electron beams

Transversely-polarized beams are heuristic to the mechanism of CP violation and explore new physics. Besides, the transverse-polarization monitoring is a key point for the beam energy calibration by

Precision electron beam polarimetry for next generation nuclear physics experiments

Polarized electron beams have played an important role in scattering experiments at moderate to high beam energies. Historically, these experiments have been primarily targeted at studying hadronic



The polarized electron source at NIKHEF

An overview of the polarized electron source used at the NIKHEF accelerator facility is given. Since its first operation in September 1996 we have obtained currents in the source larger than 150 mA,

Remarks on the Classical and Quantum-Mechanical Treatment of Partial Polarization*

The methods for the convenient treatment of partial polarization are discussed. In particular, it is shown (1) how to introduce the “Stokes parameters” and the “Poincare sphere” representation in a

Quantum field theory

This book is a modern pedagogic introduction to the ideas and techniques of quantum field theory. After a brief overview of particle physics and a survey of relativistic wave equations and Lagrangian
