Abstract

Total and differential cross sections for photoproduction of eta mesons from 12C, 4OCa, 93Nb, and natPb have been obtained up to 790 MeV incident photon energy at the Mainz Microtron (MAMI) with the TAPS spectrometer. The absorption cross section sigma_etaN = (30 ± 2.5 ± 6)mb of eta mesons in nuclear matter and the absorption length lambda = (2.0 ± 0.2 ± 0.4) fm are extracted. No significant depletion of the Sll(1535) strength in the eta photoproduction on nuclei is observed.
