Abstract

A well known technique for polarizing a proton beam consists by scattering it off some material, typically carbon. The use of such a method has been proposed(1) also for polarizing antiprotons at LEAR, and it is now part of the program of Experiment PS 172. Here we give a brief review of how one can obtain an estimate of the polarization parameter in pC scattering, a description of the beam which has actually been designed, and a first list of the measurements we plan to do with such a beam.
