Subject: Proton Spin Physics with STAR; Status and Prospects
Speaker:    Ernst Sichtermann
Lawrence Berkley National Lab
Date:Friday, August 30, 2013
Time: 11 a.m.
Place:CEBAF Center Auditorium
Abstract:Two main goals of the spin physics program with STAR at RHIC are to measure the polarization of gluons in the polarized proton and to delineate spin contributions from the light quarks and anti-quarks by flavor. The measurements are being made with collisions of longitudinally polarized protons at 200 and 500 GeV center-of-mass energy. In addition, intriguingly large spin effects have been observed in collisions with transversely polarized beams at forward pseudo=rapidities. I will discuss the status and outlook.
