Title: Measurement of the beam asymmetry Σ and the target asymmetry T in the photoproduction of ω mesons off the proton using CLAS at Jefferson Laboratory

Abstract

Here, the photoproduction of $$\omega$$ mesons off the proton has been studied in the reaction $$\gamma p\to p\,\omega$$ using the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) and the frozen-spin target (FROST) in Hall B at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. For the first time, the target asymmetry, $T$, has been measured in photoproduction from the decay $$\omega\to\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$$, using a transversely-polarized target with energies ranging from just above the reaction threshold up to 2.8 GeV. Significant non-zero values are observed for these asymmetries, reaching about 30-40% in the third-resonance region. New measurements for the photon-beam asymmetry, $$\Sigma$$, are also presented, which agree well with previous CLAS results and extend the world database up to 2.1 GeV. These data and additional $$\omega$$-photoproduction observables from CLAS were included in a partial-wave analysis within the Bonn-Gatchina framework. Significant contributions from $s$-channel resonance production were found in addition to $t$-channel exchange processes.
