Abstract
Experiment E155 at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) measured t he spin-dependent structure of the proton and neutron, using for the first time (LiD)-Li-6 as the polarized deuteron target material in a high-energy electron beam. This compound provides a significantly higher dilution facto r than any other solid deuteron target material currently used in high-ener gy physics experiments. Results of the polarization behavior of the (LiD)-L i-6 target material before and after exposure to the 50 GeV/c electron beam used in E155 are presented. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
