Abstract

Longitudinal double-spin asymmetries of charged hadrons with high transverse momentum p(T) have been measured in electroproduction using the Hermes detector at HERA. Processes involving gluons in the nucleon have been enhanced relative to others by selecting hadrons with p(T) typically above 1GeV. In this kinematic domain the gluon polarization has been extracted in leading order making use of the model embedded in the Monte Carlo Generator PYTHIA 6.2. The gluon polarization obtained from single inclusive hadrons in the pT range 1GeV < p(T) < 2.5GeV using a deuterium target is Delta g/g(< x >, ) = 0.049 +/- 0.034(stat) +/- 0.010(sys-exp)(-0.099)(+0.126)(sys-models) at a scale = 1.35 GeV2 and < x > = 0.22. For different final states and kinematic domains, consistent values of Delta g/g have been found within statistical uncertainties using hydrogen and deuterium targets.
