Title: Beam-target helicity asymmetry for γ n π - p in the N * resonance region

Abstract

In this paper, we report the first beam-target double-polarization asymmetries in the $$\gamma + n(p) \rightarrow \pi^- + p(p)$$ reaction spanning the nucleon resonance region from invariant mass $W$= $1500$ to $2300$ MeV. Circularly polarized photons and longitudinally polarized deuterons in $HD$ have been used with the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab. The exclusive final state has been extracted using three very different analysis techniques that show excellent agreement, and these have been used to deduce the $E$ polarization observable for an effective neutron target. These results have been incorporated into new partial wave analyses, and have led to revised values for several $$\gamma nN^*$$ resonance photo-couplings.
