Spin physics at a fixed-target experiment at the LHC (AFTER@LHC)

Abstract

We outline the opportunities for spin physics which are offered by a next generation and multipurpose fixed-target experiment exploiting the proton LHC beam extracted by a bent crystal. In particular, we focus on the study of single transverse spin asymetries with the polarisation of the target.
