Sun, C; Wu, YK, The feasibility study of measuring the polarization of a relativistic electron beam using a compton scattering gamma-ray source, in Proceedings of 2007 Particle Accelerator Conference, Proceedings of the IEEE Particle Accelerator Conference (2007), pp. 4057-4059 [Gateway.cgi], [doi] .

    The Compton scattering of a circularly polarized photon beam and a polarized electron beam leads to an asymmetric spatial distribution of the gamma rays. This asymmetry has been calculated for the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS) beam at Duke University. Owing to the high intensity of the HIGS beam, this asymmetry is determined to be measurable with a small statistical error using a simple optical imaging system for gamma-ray beams. We propose to set up this system to measure the polarization of the electron beam in the Duke storage ring. ©2007 IEEE.
