Accelerator Physics Laboratory

The Accelerator Physics Laboratory (APL) is developing a new ion polarization controlling mode — the Transparent Spin mode (TS mode).
Using the TS mode will make it possible to effectively manipulate the direction of ion polarization in colliders without losing the degree of polarization and to organize a system of simultaneous spin reversals in all bunches of the beam during the experiment and an on-line polarization monitoring system.
The TS mode under development has no analogs in the world and will allow for bringing experiments with polarized ions to a new level of accuracy.
The research is relevant to the NICA Collider (Russia). It is also of interest to other research centers, such as the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) (USA), the Brookhaven National Laboratory (USA), and the Jülich Research Center (Germany).
