Abstract

We report on new measurements of the beam asymmetry for. photoproduction on protons and neutrons in hydrogen and deuterium targets from the GRAAL Collaboration. The beam asymmetry values are extracted from the reaction threshold (E-gamma = 1.1 GeV in the free nucleon kinematics) up to 1.5 GeV of incoming photon energy. For the first time both the radiative and the three-pion decay channels are simultaneously investigated on the free proton. Results from the two decay channels are in agreement, leading to the world's most precise measurements of the beam asymmetry for omega photoproduction off free protons. First experimental results on the deuteron allow the extraction of the Sigma beam asymmetry on quasifree nucleons. The beam asymmetry angular distributions obtained for the free and the quasifree kinematics show the same behavior, similar to the findings in pseudoscalar meson photoproduction reactions. First results of the beam asymmetry on the quasifree neutrons are presented, showing different strengths and angular distributions from the results on the proton target.
