Abstract

. Differentialcross-sections for quasi-free π0 photoproduction from the proton and neutron bound in the deuteron have been measured for Eγ = 200–400 MeV at θlab γ = 136.2◦ using the Glasgow photon tagger at MAMI, the Mainz 48 cm Ø×64 cm NaI(Tl) photon detector and the G¨ottingen SENECA recoil detector. For the proton measurements made with both liquid-deuterium and liquid-hydrogen targets allow direct comparison of “free” π0 photoproduction cross-sections as extracted from the bound-proton data with experimental free cross-sections which are found to be in reasonable agreement below 320 MeV. At higher energies the “free” cross-sections extracted from quasi-free data are significantly smaller than the experimental free cross-sections and theoretical predictions based on multipole analysis. For the first time, “free” neutron cross-section have been extracted in the ∆-region. They are also in agreement with the predictions from multipole analysis up to 320 MeV and significantly smaller at higher photon energies.
