A Gas Target Internal to the LHC for the Study of pp Single-Spin Asymmetries and Heavy Ion Collisions

Figure 3

Storage cell geometry. The proton beam is traversing the beam tube of total length ; the polarized atomic beam enters “ballistically” via the feed tube into the center and diffuses outwards along the three tube elements with a density maximum in the center (figure taken from [3]).
