Accurate measurement of the electron beam polarization in JLab Hall A using Compton polarimetry

Abstract : A major advance in accurate electron beam polarization measurement has been achieved at Jlab Hall A with a Compton polarimeter based on a Fabry–Perot cavity photon beam amplifier. At an electron energy of 4.6 GeV and a beam current of 40 $\mu$A, a total relative uncertainty of 1.5\% is typically achieved within 40 min of data taking. Under the same conditions monitoring of the polarization is accurate at a level of 1\%. These unprecedented results make Compton polarimetry an essential tool for modern parity-violation experiments, which require very accurate electron beam polarization measurements.
