New scattering data suggests that gluons make only a small contribution to the spin of protons and neutrons

Scientists have acquired more clues in the mystery of how the spin, or intrinsic angular momentum of a nucleon (proton or neutron), results from its constituent parts, quarks and gluons. Marco Stratmann at RIKEN?s Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science in Wako and co-workers have used new scattering data to determine that the contribution from gluons is likely to be small.
