RHIC Spin Group

in the BNL Physics Department
Supported by the DOE Medium Energy Group

For the latest information please visit the RHIC Spin Group wiki page at


The purpose of the RHIC Spin Group is to provide leadership and support for the RHIC spin program at BNL, and to provide for the common requirements of the spin program, particularly for polarimetry. STAR spin, PHENIX spin, and polarimetry are combined within one group.

The goal of the RHIC spin program is to understand the spin structure of the proton, using the strongly interacting probes, quarks and gluons, of one colliding proton to probe the structure of the other colliding proton.
