Description

In polarized proton collision experiments, spin flip is needed to reduce the systematic errors. At high energy colliders with Siberian snakes, a single magnet spin flipper does not work . A more sophisticated spin flipper, constructed of nine-dipole magnets, was used to flip the spin in the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. A 97% spin-flip efficiency was measured at both 24 and 255 GeV. The spin flip experiment results are presented in this paper.
