Spin Matching Conditions in Large Electron Storage Rings with Purely Horizontal Beam Polarization

  • R. Rossmanith
Conference paper


In the last few years the self-polarization of electrons and positrons in storage rings (Sokolov-Ternov effect1) was observed in many storage rings: ACO,2 VEPP2,3 VEPP4,4 SPEAR,5 DORIS,6 PETRA,7 and CESR.8 In all these machines the beam was polarized by synchrotron radiation emission in the bending magnets of the arcs. As a consequence the spin axis in the arc must be parallel or antiparallel to the bending field, depending on the particle species.
