Abstract / Description of output

Recent results of photodisintegration of deuteron and 3He measured with the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer at Jefferson Lab are reported. The onset of dimensional scaling is investigated in the two-body photodisintegration of 3He, with the results indicating a scaling onset at remarkably low energy and momentum transfer. Results on the azimuthal asymmetry of deuteron photodisintegration are expected to aid in understanding the dominant mechanisms of deuteron photodisintegration and the underlying dynamics in the medium-energy region. In this region, neither effective field theories nor perturbative QCD can be used to describe the reaction, and understanding the underlying dynamics is based on phenomenological quark models.
