Polarisation-dependent differential cross sections σT associated with the target asymmetry T have been measured for the reaction γp→→pπ0 with transverse target polarisation from π0 threshold to photon energies of 190 MeV. The data were obtained using a frozen-spin butanol target with the Crystal Ball / TAPS detector set-up and the Glasgow photon tagging system at the Mainz Microtron MAMI. Results for σT have been used in combination with our previous measurements of the unpolarised cross section σ0 and the beam asymmetry Σ for a model-independent determination of S - and P -wave multipoles in the π0 threshold region, which includes for the first time a direct determination of the imaginary part of the E0+ multipole.

T and F asymmetries in $π^0$ photoproduction on the proton

The γp→π0p reaction was studied at laboratory photon energies from 425 to 1445 MeV with a transversely polarized target and a longitudinally polarized beam. The beam-target asymmetry F was measured for the first time and new high precision data for the target asymmetry T were obtained. The experiment was performed at the photon tagging facility of the Mainz Microtron (MAMI) using the Crystal Ball and TAPS photon spectrometers. The polarized cross sections were expanded in terms of associated Legendre functions and compared to recent predictions from several partial-wave analyses. The impact of the new data on our understanding of the underlying partial-wave amplitudes and baryon resonance contributions is discussed.

Measurement of the beam asymmetry $\Sigma$ for $\pi^0$ and $\eta$ photoproduction on the proton at $E_\gamma = 9$ GeV

We report measurements of the photon beam asymmetry $\Sigma$ for the reactions $\vec{\gamma}p\to p\pi^0$ and $\vec{\gamma}p\to p\eta $ from the GlueX experiment using a 9 GeV linearly-polarized, tagged photon beam incident on a liquid hydrogen target in Jefferson Lab's Hall D. The asymmetries, measured as a function of the proton momentum transfer, possess greater precision than previous $\pi^0$ measurements and are the first $\eta$ measurements in this energy regime. The results are compared with theoretical predictions based on $t$-channel, quasi-particle exchange and constrain the axial-vector component of the neutral meson production mechanism in these models.

Differential cross sections of neutral pion photoproduction on hydrogen were measured in the region between the first and the second nucleon resonance at photon energies of 400–500 MeV and were compared with results of an energy-independent multipole analysis.

$\pi^{0}$ PHOTOPRODUCTION FROM THE DEUTERON AT FORWARD ANGLES IN THE ENERGY RANGE FROM 900-MeV TO 1400-MeV

The cross section for the reaction [...] was measured at the Caltech synchrotron. The [...] was detected by measuring its decay gamma rays with two lead glass, total absorption Cherenkov counters. The results are three angular distributions at k = 911, 1180, and 1390 MeV, at forward angles from 3 degrees to 90 degrees. The deuteron/proton ratio differs significantly from 2.0, but final state effects from the use of a deuteron target make impossible quantitative conclusions about the neutron cross section.

Photoproduction of $\pi^\circ$'S from protons in the forward direction in the region of the second and third resonances

Inspire Record 44255 DOI 10.17182/hepdata.37170

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. The cross section for photoproduction of neutral pions from protons has been measured at energies near 750, 915 and 1150 Mev and over most of the forward-going [...] C.M. hemisphere. The experimental technique consisted of detecting both of the [...] decay photons with lead glass total absorption counters and, when convenient, the recoil proton with a single scintillation counter. The method is subject to rather large systematic errors but, within these, our results are consistent with other experiments wherever there are overlapping points. Our data has the striking feature that the cross section is very small at [...] in the region of the second and third pion nucleon resonances. Also, although the data is not inconsistent with a simple first, second and third resonance model, it appears likely that above the third resonance the pole process consisting of the exchange of a single vector meson is becoming important or even dominant. The evidence at this time mildly suggests that this behaviour is largely due to [...] mesons and under that hypothesis we are able to estimate some [...] meson coupling constants. For example, using a prescription of Gell-Mann and Zachariasen, we estimate the partial width for the decay [...] to be 240 Kev.

Pi zero photoproduction from hydrogen between 574 and 1211 MeV

Wolverton, Franklin Bruce ; Walker, Robert Lee ;

Inspire Record 53365 DOI 10.17182/hepdata.37150

Cross section angular distributions for [...] photoproduction from hydrogen were measured for 28 laboratory photon energies from 574 to 1211 MeV. At most energies, the [...] center of mass angle was varied from 60[degrees] to 170[degrees] in steps of 10[degrees]. A magnetic spectrometer was used to measure the momentum and angle of the recoil proton. A scintillation counter hodoscope with lead convertors was used to detect the presence of at least one of the [...] decay gamma rays. For a majority of the measurements the [...] rates were separated from a contamination of pi pair rates using the difference in their distribution among the gamma counters. For the remainder of the measurements, charged pi pairs were eliminated using veto counters in front of the gamma counters. Internal inconsistency and comparison with other experiments indicate that the veto data are 10 to 15% low near 90[degrees] in the region of 750 MeV. The remainder of the data show good internal consistency and fair agreement with data of other experiments. The results show a peak at 140[degrees] near 1050 MeV which had been expected but not previously measured. Comparison of the backward angle data with that from experiments measuring cross sections very near 180[degrees] indicates either an inconsistency between experiments or a rapid drop in the cross section near 180[degrees] in the region around 800 MeV.
