Overview

  • Atomic Beam Source

  • Well established technology

  • Can create pure spin states

  • 8 x 1016 atoms/s

  • 84% atomic fraction

  • 80% polarization

  • Laser Driven Target

  • Compact design

  • Active pumping—higher flux

Optical Pumping

At spin temperature equilibrium, the population of each spin state n(mF) is controlled by the Boltzmann equation.

Spincell Optimization

  • Developed a code to simulate recombination and depolarization

  • One must minimize the Surface Area / Volume ratio, and the length of the transport tube Dimensions: 2” diameter spherical spincell with 5 cm neck

Future Work

  • Redo polarization tests with correct mirrors.

  • Fine-tune operational parameters.

  • Investigate the quality of the spincell coating.

  • Investigate performance of sextupole filter.

  • Run tests with deuterium.

  • Redesign target for operation at BLAST.
