Polarized μ+andμ-beams

- Solution proposed by Lau Gatignon:
- To select Pπ=110GeV andPμ=100GeV
- to maximise the muon flux
- 2) To keep constant the collimator
- settings which define
- the π and μ momentum spreads
- Pol μ+ = -0.8andPol μ- = +0.8
- I(μ+) ~ 2. I(μ-)
- switch in ~10 mins (once per shift?)

Requirements for DVCS:

-same energy

-maximum intensity

-opposite polarisation to a few %

-change of beam charge frequent

Possible solution for the recoil detector proposed in the Workshop on the Future Physics at COMPASS 26 Sept2002

Received funding by EU FP6 (Bonn-Mainz-Saclay-Warsaw )

Goal : full test of a prototype of a 45 degree sector

- scintillating material studies (timing at 200 ps over 4 m)

- fast triggering and multi-hit ADC/TDC system

Also studying a scintillating fibers solution (Monte-Carlo)

with good timing provided by incoming or scattered muons

Hard Exclusive Meson Production

It comes for free with the recoil detector and existing COMPASS trackers

Cross section:

Vector meson production (ρ,ω,…) H & E

Pseudo-scalar production (π,η…) H & E

Hρ0 = 1/2 (2/3Hu + 1/3Hd + 3/8Hg)

Then :

Impact on GPD :

sL is dominant at high Q²

(factorisation only valid for sL)

High statistics from

g-production to hard regime

better coverage at high Q²

more data to come …

Exclusive vector meson production in COMPASS data

- preliminary results from 2002 data

- allow test of SCHC

- shows dominance of sL at Q²>2GeV²

- more data on tape with better coverage at high Q² to come

- insight on GPDs :

transverse asymmetry and cross section measurements

Towards a GPD experiment using COMPASS…

- COMPASS is complementary to other experiments

- has good sensitivity to GPD models through BCA

- has good Q² range for 0.03<xbj<0.2

- will be able to measure Hard Exclusive Meson Production

- seeking collaborators…

This initiative is now an “Express of Interest” : SPSC-EOI-005

http://doc.cern.ch//archive/electronic/cern/preprints/spsc/public/spsc-2005-007.pdf

COMPASS should also be a good place to study GPD in 2010 !
