Abstract

Differential cross sections of the exclusive process ep → e π+n were measured with good precision in the range of the photon virtuality Q2 = 1.8–4.5 GeV2 and the invariant mass range of the π+n final state W = 1.6–2.0 GeV using the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility Large Acceptance Spectrometer. Data were collected with nearly complete coverage in the azimuthal and polar angles of the nπ+ center-of-mass system. More than 37 000 cross-section points were measured. The contributions of the isospin I = 1 2 resonances N(1675) 5 2 − , N(1680) 5 2 + , and N(1710) 1 2 + were extracted at different values of Q2 using a single-channel, energy-dependent resonance amplitude analysis. Two different approaches, the unitary isobar model and the fixed-t dispersion relations, were employed in the analysis. We observe significant strength of the N(1675) 5 2 − in the A1/2 amplitude, which is in strong disagreement with quark models that predict both transverse amplitudes to be strongly suppressed. For the N(1680) 5 2 + we observe a slow changeover from the dominance of the A3/2 amplitude at the real photon point (Q2 = 0) to a Q2 where A1/2 begins to dominate. The scalar amplitude S1/2 drops rapidly with Q2 consistent with quark model prediction. For the N(1710) 1 2 + resonance our analysis shows significant strength for the A1/2 amplitude at Q2 < 2.5 GeV2 .
