PHENIX/Spin Siberian Snakes

Siberian Snakes

Two full Siberian Snakes will be installed at each of Two RHIC rings to avoid the depolarization resonances (imperfection resonances and intrinsic resonances) during the acceleration of the polarized protons up to 250 GeV. These four snakes will generate 180 degree spin rotation without any orbit distortion.
