Abstract
We have built a polarimeter in order to measure the electron beam polarizat ion in hall C at JLAB. Using a superconducting solenoid to drive the pure-i ron target foil into saturation, and a symmetrical setup to detect the Mail er electrons in coincidence, we achieve an accuracy of <1%. This sets a new standard for Moller polarimeters. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All right s reserved.
