Initial large global angular momentum in non-central relativistic heavy-ion collisions can produce strong vorticity, and through the spin-orbit couping, causes the spin of particles to align with the system’s global angular momentum. We present the azimuthal angle dependent (relative to the first-order plane) global polarization for Λ hyperons in midcentral Au+Au collisions at = 200 GeV. We also present the polarization of Λ hyperons along the beam direction as a function of Λ hyperons’ emission angle relative to the second-order event plane at = 200 GeV. This longitudinal polarization is found to increase in more peripheral collision. The implications of the results are discussed.
