Abstract

A cylindrically symmetric detector system has been installed in one of the straight sections of the Indiana Cooler. The apparatus is suitable for measuring the polarization of 80–300 MeV stored proton beams. Fig. 1 shows a schematic view of the detector array consisting of a 1.5 mm thick scintillator (F), 2 wire chambers, a 102 mm thick scintillator (E) and a 6.5 mm thick scintillator (V). The detector system was designed for the first nuclear physics experiment (p+p → p+p+π° near threashold [1]) at the Indiana Cooler and accepts scattering angles between \( \vartheta _1 = 5^\circ {\text{ and }}\vartheta _2 = 20^\circ \) with respect to the beam axis.
