Title: Beam normal spin asymmetry for the e p e Δ ( 1232 ) process

Abstract

Here, we calculate the single spin asymmetry for the $$e p \to e \Delta(1232)$$ process, for an electron beam polarized normal to the scattering plane. Such single spin asymmetries vanish in the one-photon exchange approximation, and are directly proportional to the absorptive part of a two-photon exchange amplitude. As the intermediate state in such two-photon exchange process is on its mass shell, the asymmetry allows one to access for the first time the on-shell $$\Delta \to \Delta$$ as well as $$N^\ast \to \Delta$$ electromagnetic transitions. We present the general formalism to describe the $$e p \to e \Delta$$ beam normal spin asymmetry, and provide a numerical estimate of its value using the nucleon, $$\Delta(1232)$$, $$S_{11}(1535)$$, and $$D_{13}(1520)$$ intermediate states. We compare our results with the first data from the Qweak@JLab experiment and give predictions for the A4@MAMI experiment.
