  The Compton scattering of a circularly polarized photon beam and a polarized electron beam leads to an asymmetric distribution of the gamma rays. This asymmetry has been calculated for the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS) beam at Duke University. Owing to the high intensity of the HIGS beam, this asymmetry is determined to be measurable with a small statistic error using a simple gamma-ray beam imaging system. We propose to set up this system to measure the polarization of the electron beam in the Duke storage ring.
