Motivation

Motivation

  • Polarized 3He ~ polarized neutron => compatible with existing spin manipulation capability in RHIC

  • In all previous experimental study of the spin structure of the nucleon, measurements on the neutron have been essential

  • For eRHIC, polarized neutron as well as polarized proton allows tests of the fundamental Bjorken Sum Rule


3 he basic properties

3He - basic properties.

  • 3He magnetic moment - 2.13 μN

  • Critical fields to break hyperfine interaction:

  • 3He(1S0) - B = 10 G-holding field

  • 3He(23S1) - Bc = 2.407 kG

  • 3He+(1S) - Bc= 3.087kG

  • 3He+(2S) - Bc= 0.386 kG


Polarized 3 he sources status 1984

Polarized 3He sources. Status 1984.

No new operational 3He ion sources were built.A number of new ideas were proposed and tested (not successfully).

Spin-exchange and “metastability-exchange” techniques for 3He atoms polarization were greatly improved due to laser development and demanding applications.

Monte-Carlo simulations for 3He++ polarization in ECR ionizer. Excitation cross-section is an order of magnitude larger than ionization to He++. There will be a polarization loss in excited states in <10 kG field ECR source. Polarization 10-20%.

Ebis ionizer for polarized 3 he gas proposal

EBIS ionizer for polarized 3He gas (proposal).

  • Polarized 3He gas is produced by a “metastability exchange” technique. P ~ 70-80% (pressure ~ 1 torr).

  • 3He gas is injected in the EBIS ionizer.

  • The ionization in EBIS is produced in a 50 kG field.

  • This field will greatly suppress the depolarization in the intermediate He+ single charge state, Bc(He+) = 3.1 kG

  • The charge ratio He++/He+>> 1.

  • The number of He++ ions is limited to the maximum charge which can be confined in EBIS (about 2.5 ·1011 of 3He++/store).

  • It is sufficient to obtain ~1011 He++/bunch in RHIC.

Polarized 3 he gas injection into the ebis ionizer

Polarized 3He gas injection into the EBIS-ionizer.

  • Polarized 3He gas can be transported without depolarization through glass and coated metal tubes.

  • There is a limitation due to the magnetic field gradient from the strong EBIS field in the transport line. Calculations show that there is no significant depolarization with the real magnetic field of the EBIS superconducting solenoid. A. Kocoloski (MIT)


Direct optical pumping of the fast 3 he 2s beam proposal

Direct optical pumping of the “fast” 3He(2S) beam (proposal).

  • After Cs-neutralizer cell almost 100% of He-atoms are in (23S1) state. Energy defect-0.38 ev.

  • Direct optical pumping can produce near 100% nuclear polarization in He(2S) states. P( He++) ~80-90%.

3 he nuclear polarization measurements

3He++ nuclear polarization measurements.

  • After acceleration to 300 keV/amu in RFQ a nuclear reaction like

    3He +D p + 4He + 18.35 MeV.

  • Lamb-shift polarimeter technique can be used after He++ conversion to He+(2S) in the alkali-vapor cell. This polarimeter operates at the source energy of a 10-20 keV.


Summary

Summary.

  • There exist several possible techniques to produce a required polarized 3He beam pulse intensity of about 2·1011 He++/pulse.

  • We propose a feasibility study of a polarized 3He++ source using the operational BNL EBIS ionizer and a metastability –exchange polarized 3He gas cell.

  • The expected beam intensity is about 2.5·1011

    3He++/pulse with nuclear polarization: P >70 %.
