Internal Hydrogen or Solid Targets and Polarization Experiments at LEAR

The complicated partial wave structure together with the strong inelasticity of the p̄-p system starting right at threshold holds the promise to make polarization experiments at LEAR interesting and rich in information1,2,3. Double scattering experiments or hyperon decay techniques will be powerful tools in this field. Experiments at present foresee to use the external beam to pin down spin effects. In the present note we want to sketch the advantages of an internal target4 for the purpose to control the spin degrees of freedom in the p̄-p entrance channel.
