Description

Operated at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven until beginning its recent upgrade into sPHENIX, the PHENIX experiment has collected a wealth of data from polarized proton collisions. Analysis of these data sets continues to offer insight into the spin structure of the proton. In particular, RHIC's polarized proton-proton data help constrain polarized PDFs in the proton, and the double spin asymmetry of various processes is sensitive to gluons at leading order. I will give a brief overview of the detector and recent results in charged pion and jet asymmetries, as well as a discussion of the impact these measurements have on our understanding of parton polarizations.
