Speaker

Description

I will discuss the role of polarized solid targets in particle physics from their inception in 1962 to the present day. I will present the developments, such as cryogenic improvements and better materials, that have contributed to our better understanding of the physical processes involved in particle scattering. Examples of current efforts will be given.
