The PINTEX Program

(Polarized Internal Target Experiments)

The PINTEX group has been studying proton-proton and proton-deuteron scattering and reactions between 100 and 500 MeV at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF). The experiments made use of electron-cooled polarized proton or deuteron beams, orbiting in the 'Indiana Cooler' storage ring, and of a polarized atomic-beam target of hydrogen or deuterium in the path of the stored beam.

The collaboration involved researchers from several midwestern universities, as well as a number of European institutions. The PINTEX program ended when the Indiana Cooler was shut down in August 2002.

On this web site you can find information on the experiments that were carried out, some of the numerical results that were obtained, a complete list of publications that resulted from the program, and some information and pictures on the technical aspects of the experiments.
