SN0405 : Note on RHIC Polarimetry

Author(s):H. Spinka
Date:Jul. 19, 1999
Abstract:Studies for statistical and systematic errors for RHIC polarimeters are discussed. The accuracy of measurements of polarization and intensity for each bunch in the RHIC beams is evaluated. Relations for monitoring of luminosity for either polarized or unpolarized beams are derived that connect STAR results with those of other RHIC detectors.
