The Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (INPP) presents Steffen Strauch, of University of South Carolina, presenting “Baryon spectroscopy with FROST,” on Tuesday, March 28, at at 4 p.m. in Edwards Accelerator Lab, Roger W. Finlay Conference Room.
Abstract: Meson photoproduction is an important tool in the study of baryon resonances. The spectrum of broad and overlapping nucleon excitations can be greatly clarified by use of polarization observables. The N* program at Jefferson Lab with the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) includes experimental studies with linearly- and circularly-polarized tagged-photon beams, longitudinally- and transversely-polarized nucleon targets, and recoil polarizations. An overview of these experimental studies and recent results, particularly from single- and double-pion-production channels, will be presented.
