A Study of Lithium Deuteride as a Material for a Polarized Target


Experiment E155 at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) measured the spin dependent structure of the proton and neutron, using for the first time 6LiD as the polarized deuteron target material in a high energy electron beam. This compound provides a significantly higher dilution factor than any other solid deuteron target material currently used in high energy physics experiments. Results of the polarization behavior of the 6LiD target material before and after exposure to the 50 GeV/c electron beam used in E155 are presented.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
