The Wisconsin ABS Target

PinTeX experiments use a polarized proton target developed at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. This target, known as the ABS (Atomic Beam Source) provides a polarized internal proton target with user selectable polarization axis. The next three selections describe the behavior of the target during several Pintex experimental runs.

Target Polarization


In conjunction with a strong holding field the target is used for a measurement of the polarization of hydrogen molecules after recombination. The experiment is commenly referred to as POLMOL. View the PolMol target.
