Abstract

With a storage ring synchrotron, two additional methods have become possible to establish polarization standards at arbitrary energies, making use of the ease with which the energy of the stored beam can be changed. Both methods yield the analyzing power of a reaction at one energy in relation to the known analyzing power at a different energy. One method involves ramping of the energy of a polarized beam up and down; the other requires a polarized target. The two methods have been demonstrated in an experiment with the Indiana Cooler, and their relative consistency has been established.
