5 5 Low-Energy Polarimetry Candidate Processes Photons: Compton Scattering on polarized electrons –forward scattering (e.g. Schopper et al.) –backward scattering –transmission method (e.g. Goldhaber et al.) Positrons: all on ferromagnetic = polarized e- targets –Annihilation polarimetry (e+e- ) (e.g. Corriveau et al.) –Bhabha scattering (e+e- e+e-) (e.g. Ullmann et al.) –brems/annihilation (e+ ) plus -transmission (Compton) polarimetry Principle difficulties of e+ polarimetry: –huge multiple-scattering at low energies even in thin targets –cannot employ double-arm coincidence techniques or single-event counting due to poor machine duty cycle –low energies below 10 MeV, very vulnerable to backgrounds All of the candidate processes have been explored by us: the transmission method is the most suitable SLAC EPAC 12 June 2003 E166 Proposal Presentation K.P. Schüler

6 6 Transmission Polarimetry of (monochromatic) Photons M. Goldhaber et al. Phys. Rev. 106 (1957) 826. all unpolarized contributions cancel in the transmission asymmetry (monochromatic case) SLAC EPAC 12 June 2003 E166 Proposal Presentation K.P. Schüler

7 7 Transmission Polarimetry of Photons monochromatic case But, undulator photons are not at all monochromatic: Must instead use integrated numbers or energies Analyzing Power: SLAC EPAC 12 June 2003 E166 Proposal Presentation K.P. Schüler

8 8 Transmission Polarimetry of Positrons 2-step process: re-convert e+ via brems/annihilation process –polarization transfer from e+ to proceeds in well-known manner measure polarization of re-converted photons with the photon transmission method discussed earlier –infer the polarization of the parent positrons from the measured photon polarization experimental challenges: huge angular distribution of the positrons at the production target: –e+ spectrometer collection & transport efficiency –background rejection issues huge angular distribution of the re-converted photons –detected signal includes large fraction of Compton scattered photons –requires extensive simulations to determine the effective Analyzing Power formal procedure: Fronsdahl & Überall; Olson & Maximon; Page; McMaster SLAC EPAC 12 June 2003 E166 Proposal Presentation K.P.
