Title: Compton scattering from He 4 at 61 MeV

Abstract

The Compton scattering cross section from 4He has been measured with high statistical accuracy over a scattering angle range of 40° - 159° using a quasimonoenergetic 61-MeV photon beam at the High Intensity Gamma-Ray Source. The data are interpreted using a phenomenological model sensitive to the dipole isoscalar electromagnetic polarizabilities (α s and β s) of the nucleon. These data can be fit with the model using values of α s and β s that are consistent with the currently accepted values. These data will serve as benchmarks of future calculations from effective field theories and lattice quantum chromodynamics.
