Polarization of Stored Antiprotons by the Stern-Gerlach Effect

  • T. O. Niinikoski
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 31)


We discuss the polarization of stored antiproton beams by spatially separating particles with opposite spin directions, using the Stern-Gerlach effect in alternating quadrupole fields.
