The Spin Muon Collaboration Experiment

  • R. van Dantzig
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 6)


The method and status of CERN experiment NA47 to measure the structure function g1 of the neutron (for the first time) and of the proton (with improved accuracy compared to earlier measurements) is outlined. First data were taken for 100 and 210 GeV polarized muons deep-inelastically scattered off a polarized deuterated butanol target.
