Proton-proton elastic scattering has been studied in counter experiments using the 130 MeV. 48 percent polarized proton beam from The Harwell 110-inch synchrocyclotron. The polarisation in p-p scattering has been measured at various energies between about 27 MeV. and 100 MeV. The beam energy was reduced to the required values in a suitable absorbser, and the energy of each measurement was defined by an anti-coincidence arrangement in conjunction with telescope absorbers. A liquid hydrogen target was employed and solenoids were used to rotate the polarisation of the beam through ± 180° in order to eliminate geometrical false asymmetrics. The Wolfenstein depolarization parameter in p-p scattering at 143 MeV. has been measured using similar techniques.
