Abstract

We present measurements of the polarization of the [Formula presented] produced in 800-GeV proton interactions with a copper target. Polarization of the [Formula presented] is sensitive to the [Formula presented] production and hadronization processes. A longitudinal polarization is observed at large [Formula presented], while at small [Formula presented] the state is produced essentially unpolarized or slightly transversely polarized. No significant variation of the polarization is observed versus [Formula presented].
