How to Reach a Thousand-Second In-Plane Polarization Lifetime with 0.97-GeV/c Deuterons in a Storage Ring
AbstractWe observe a deuteron beam polarization lifetime near 1000 s in the horizontal plane of a magnetic
storage ring (COSY). This long spin coherence time is maintained through a combination of beam
bunching, electron cooling, sextupole field corrections, and the suppression of collective effects through
beam current limits. This record lifetime is required for a storage ring search for an intrinsic electric dipole
moment on the deuteron at a statistical sensitivity level approaching 10-29 e cm.
