Abstract / Description of output
We report the first large-acceptance measurement of polarization transfer from a polarized photon beam to a recoiling nucleon. The measurement pioneers a novel polarimetry technique, which can be applied to many other nuclear and hadron physics experiments. The commissioning reaction of 1H(γ→, p⃗)π0 in the range 0.4<Eγ<1.4 GeV validates the technique and provides essential new data to constrain the excitation spectrum of the nucleon.
