"The Upcoming GDH Sum Rule Measurement for the Deuteron"
ABSTRACT:
This talk will introduce the GDH Sum Rule for the deuteron and the technical hurdles involved in making a doubly polarized measurement via the photodisintegration process d(γ,n)p. Three experimental components, the Duke Free Electron Laser Laboratory, the frozen-spin target HiFrost, and the Blowfish detector array, will be discussed, as well as the motivation for measuring the GDH Sum Rule.
