Spin Physics with COMPASS


COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at CERN studying the spin structure of the nucleon via deep inelastic muon-nucleon scattering. Hadron spectroscopy and structure are investigated using hadronic beams. The main goal of the muon program is the determination of the gluon helicity contribution, ∆G/G, to the nucleon spin. Experimentally this quantity is… (More)
