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
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.
