Title: Photoproduction of hybrid mesons from CEBAF to DESY HERA

Abstract

Decay widths, branching ratios, and production dynamics of some recently discovered {ital J}{sup PC}=1{sup {minus}+}, 0{sup {minus}+}, 1{sup {minus}{minus}}, and 2{sup {minus}+} mesons are found to be in remarkable agreement with the predicted properties of hybrid mesons. We propose tests for this new dynamics, emphasize the critical role of {pi}{ital b}{sub 1} or {pi}{ital h}{sub 1} decay channels in discriminating hybrids from conventional states, and suggest that photoproduction may offer special opportunities for isolation and confirmation of hybrids.
