Forward transverse single spin asymmetries at PHENIX

Conference Paper

Recent measurements of single transverse spin asymmetries in proton-proton collisions measured by the PHENIX experiment at RHIC are presented. The focus is on the single particle left-right asymmetry AN for π0 at √s = 200 GeV and √s = 62.4 GeV and the measurement of di-hadron correlations at √s = 200 GeV which are produced by the fragmentation of a transversely polarized quark via the Interference Fragmentation Function (IFF) H1< and thus provide a probe for the quark transversity distribution function.
