Experiments utilizing polarized internal gas targets will be reviewed. Since a few years these targets are being used at electron and proton machines and the progress made in operating these targets on a routinely basis has been pronounced. This paper will focus on experimental aspects, such as the design and construction of storage cells and different methods employed for polarimetry. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    During the RHIC Au-Au runs in 2000 and 2001 as well as in the polarized proton run in 2001 no transverse damping system existed. To overcome residual injection jitter and to maintain transverse beam emittances a transverse injection damping system is foreseen for the 2002/2003 run. This report...

    We investigated quantum size effects on polarized photoluminescence (PL) from a-plane Cd0.06Zn0.94O/ZnO quantum wells (QWs) with different well widths (LW). The degree of polarized PL at 300 K increased with a narrowing of LW, which obeyed the polarization selection rule based on a...
