Polarized target at COMPASS
September 23, 2020
The transversely polarized solid proton target was used in 2015 and 2018 for the polarized Drell- Yan experiment at the first in the world with a 10$^8$ /s intensity of 190 GeV pion beam at COM- PASS. Because of the radiation damage, the deterioration of the proton relaxation time of NH$_3$ was observed over more than 6 months data taking period. The radiation also affected the cryogenics control system in 2015. The radiation shield was improved and any incidents on the ra- diation was not observed in 2018. The transversely polarized deuteron target will be applied in 2021 with a muon beam of 160 GeV for Transversity and Sivers parton distribution functions measurements. A cooling test of the polarized target system will be performed in 2020.
