Hall C Møller Polarimeter 11 GeV Systematic Uncertainties
The main goal of this project was to study the systematic uncertainties for the Hall C Møller Polarimeter, for the new 11 GeV configuration. I used a Monte Carlo simulation to test each variable that would impact the systematic uncertainty. With the new upgrade of Hall C to 11 Gev, the uncertainty table had to be upgraded as well. My task was to find the total polarization total and compare it to the 6 GeV uncertainty table.
