We report results on transverse single spin asymmetry (SSA) measurement (A_N) in polarized proton-proton elastic scattering at √s = 510 GeV at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The SSA was measured in the four-momentum transfer squared range 0.1 ≤ −t ≤ 0.6 GeV2, using the Roman Pot setup of the STAR experiment.
