"UVA Solid State Polarized Target Program"
ABSTRACT:

The UVA solid polarized target group has been a hub for scattering experiment
polarized target research for the last 30 years.  Solid state polarized targets provide
high polarization and high density for many types of fixed targets employed by nuclear
labs worldwide.  Dynamic nuclear polarization and other RF techniques are
used to enhance the polarization of the cryogenically cooled solid
material to improve the figure of merit of the experiment.  An overview of
the technology and techniques is given with an emphasis on recent
developments.  Some future experiments are discussed providing examples of
implementation of this research which make it possible to access many spin-dependent
degrees of freedom used to test fundamental prediction of QCD.

"Probing Polarized Nuclei to Explore the Structure of Matter"
ABSTRACT:

Since the failure of classical mechanics at subatomic scales, understanding the spin of fundamental particles has been central to the investigation of the most basic workings of matter. Beyond a key property for study, spin has become an indispensable instrument for experimental discovery in the form of polarized beam sources and scattering targets. As physicists have turned from the successful description of the weakly bound, perturbative regime of QCD toward unraveling the mysteries of confinement and the glue, ever-improving polarized tools are as crucial as ever. This talk will give an overview these tools, emphasizing solid polarized targets for leptonic probes of QCD, covering their operation, development and upcoming experimental use. With the promise of a nuclear physics facility for e-N collisions on the horizon, I will discuss a new technique to produce a polarized He3 beam source. Finally, a new search for exotic glue in the nucleus using polarized targets and sources will be introduced.
