Abstract
The STAR detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) is equipped with system of dedicated Silicon Strip Detectors housed inside Roman Pot vessels, allowing to detect protons scattered at small angles. Data from polarized proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass system (c.m.s.) energy √s = 200 GeV collected with special settings of RHIC magnet lattice (β * = 22 m) allow to study proton-proton elastic scattering at very low values of squared four-momentum transfer (Mandelstam t), 0:003 ≤ −t ≤ 0:035 GeV2=c2. Results of analysis of systematic effects and large statistics of collected data sample reveal possibility of measurement of the Nuclear Slope Parameter with precision not yet achieved at this c.m.s. energy.
