We report the first beam-target double-polarization asymmetries in the $\gamma + n(p) \rightarrow \pi^- + p(p)$ reaction spanning the nucleon resonance region from invariant mass $W$= $1500$ to $2300$ MeV. Circularly polarized photons and longitudinally polarized deuterons in $H\!D$ have been used with the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab. The exclusive final state has been extracted using three very different analyses that show excellent agreement, and these have been used to deduce the {\it{E}} polarization observable for an effective neutron target.

A long-term energy option that is just approaching the horizon after decades of struggle, is fusion. Recent developments allow us to apply techniques from spin physics to advance its viability. The cross section for the primary fusion fuel in a tokamak reactor, D+T=>alpha+n, would be increased by a factor of 1. Read More

A new generation of complete experiments in pseudoscalar meson photo-production is being pursued at several laboratories. While new data are emerging, there is some confusion regarding definitions of asymmetries and the conventions used in partial wave analyses (PWA). We present expressions for constructing asymmetries as coordinate-system independent ratios of cross sections, along with the names used for these ratios by different PWA groups. Read More

We review the development of the most general analytic form of the cross section, dependent upon the three polarization vectors of the beam, target and recoil baryon, including all single, double and triple-polarization terms involving 16 spin-dependent observables. We examine the different conventions that have been used by different authors, and we present expressions that allow the direct numerical calculation of any pseudoscalar meson photo-production observables with arbitrary spin projections from the Chew-Goldberger-Low-Nambu amplitudes. We use this numerical tool to clarify apparent sign differences that exist in the literature. Read More

In preparation for the extraction of pseudoscalar meson photo-production amplitudes from a new generation of complete experiments, we assemble the relations between experimental observables and the Chew-Goldberger-Low-Nambu amplitudes. We present expressions that allow the direct calculation of matrix elements with arbitrary spin projections and uses these to clarify sign differences that exist in the literature. Comparing to the MAID and SAID analysis codes, we have found that the implied definitions of six double-polarization observables are the negative of what has been used in comparing to recent experimental data.

We report new measurements of inclusive pion production from frozen-spin HD for polarized photon beams covering the Delta(1232) resonance. These provide data simultaneously on both H and D with nearly complete angular distributions of the spin-difference cross sections entering the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn (GDH) sum rule. Recent results from Mainz and Bonn exceed the GDH prediction for the proton by 22 microbarns, suggesting as yet unmeasured high-energy components. Read More

Multipole analyses of the p(g,pi0), p(g,pi+) and p(g,g) reactions are carried out using different data sets. With sufficient constraints from polarization observables, the ratio of E2/M1 transition amplitudes for N->delta (EMR) appears to be largely insensitive to differences between recent p(g,pi0) cross section measurements. We deduce a current best estimate of EMR = -(2. Read More

A proton spin-polarizability characterizing backward Compton scattering has been extracted from a dispersion analysis of data between 33 and 309 MeV. This backward spin-polarizability, "delta" = 27.1 +/-2. Read More

A recent analysis of pion photo-production multipoles using p(g,pi0) data from Mainz is repeated, successively adding constraints from other observables and varying the number of fitted partial waves. The original analysis is shown to have been underconstrained and suffered from ambiguities. The inclusion of additional observables in our analysis results in a very different, but stable, ratio of E2/M1 multipoles at the delta that is consistent with the Mainz data set. Read More
