Description

We are investigating a range of approaches to make Resonant Spin Depolarisaton (RSD) compatible with user beam operation at DLS. To improve the reliability of loss measurements, we depolarise only one half of the bunch train, and use the loss rate in the other half to normalise. We use specifically designed array of four scinitillators placed around the beam pipe after the collimators to maximise the rate of beam loss events, thus minimising statistical error. Finally, we are investigating the polarisation and de-polarisation with simulations.
