Analyzing powers for the inclusive reaction of deuterons on carbon at energies between 0.175 and 1.6 GeV
The results of a new calibration of the polarimeter POMME for energies between 0.175 and 1.6 GeV, using the polarized deuteron beam of the Laboratoire National Saturne, are reported. The present calibration, together with previous ones, gives a complete set of vector analyzing powers in the energy range 0.175-1.8 GeV. The vector analyzing powers are fitted as a function of energy and scattering angle, with empirical formulae. Two sets of parameters are given, one for deuteron energies between 0.175 and 0.575 GeV, and the other in an energy range between 0.7 and 1.8 GeV.
