RHIC/Spin Collaboration

RIKEN BNL Collaboration on Spin Physics Program

of in
RIKEN BNL Collaboration for Spin Physics is now fabricating and installing Siberian Snakes and Spin Rotators in the RHIC main rings to accelerate polarized protons up to 250 GeV, and upgrading the PHENIX detector by installing new muon arms etc. to enhance the acceptance of single- and di-muons. These make it feasible to study the polarized quark and anti-quark structure function via the Drell-Yan processes and vector boson productions, and to investigate gluon polarization via heavy quark production ( gluon fusion) and gluon Compton scattering.
