Title: Single-spin asymmetry of J / ψ production in p + p , p + Al , and p + Au collisions with transversely polarized proton beams at s N N = 200 GeV

Abstract

We report the transverse single-spin asymmetries of J/ψ production at forward and backward rapidity, 1.2 < | y | < 2.2 , as a function of J/ψ transverse momentum (pT) and Feynman- x (x F). The data analyzed were recorded by the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in 2015 from p+p, p+Al, and p+Au collisions with transversely polarized proton beams at $$\sqrt{s}$$$_ {NN}$$ = 200 GeV . At this collision energy, single-spin asymmetries for heavy-flavor particle production of p + p collisions provide access to the spin-dependent gluon distribution and higher-twist correlation functions inside the nucleon, such as the gluon Qiu-Sterman and trigluon correlation functions. Proton + nucleus collisions offer an excellent opportunity to study nuclear effects on the correlation functions. The data indicate a positive asymmetry at the two-standard-deviation level in the p+p data for 2 GeV / c < p T < 10 GeV / c at backward rapidity and negative asymmetries at the two-standard-deviation level in the p + Au data for p T < 2 GeV/c at both forward and backward rapidity, while in p + Al collisions the asymmetries are consistent with zero within the range of experimental uncertainties.

abstractNote = {We report the transverse single-spin asymmetries of J/ψ production at forward and backward rapidity, 1.2 < | y | < 2.2 , as a function of J/ψ transverse momentum (pT) and Feynman- x (xF). The data analyzed were recorded by the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider in 2015 from p+p, p+Al, and p+Au collisions with transversely polarized proton beams at $\sqrt{s}$$_ {NN}$ = 200 GeV . At this collision energy, single-spin asymmetries for heavy-flavor particle production of p + p collisions provide access to the spin-dependent gluon distribution and higher-twist correlation functions inside the nucleon, such as the gluon Qiu-Sterman and trigluon correlation functions. Proton + nucleus collisions offer an excellent opportunity to study nuclear effects on the correlation functions. The data indicate a positive asymmetry at the two-standard-deviation level in the p+p data for 2 GeV / c < pT < 10 GeV / c at backward rapidity and negative asymmetries at the two-standard-deviation level in the p + Au data for pT < 2 GeV/c at both forward and backward rapidity, while in p + Al collisions the asymmetries are consistent with zero within the range of experimental uncertainties.},
