We have measured beam-spin asymmetries to extract the sin ϕ moment A sin ϕ L U from the hard exclusive → e p → e ′ n π + reaction above the resonance region, for the first time with nearly full coverage from forward to backward angles in the center of mass. The A sin ϕ L U moment has been measured up to 6.6     GeV 2 in − t , covering the kinematic regimes of generalized parton distributions (GPD) and baryon-to-meson transition distribution amplitudes (TDA) at the same time. The experimental results in very forward kinematics demonstrate the sensitivity to chiral-odd and chiral-even GPDs. In very backward kinematics where the TDA framework is applicable, we found A sin ϕ L U to be negative, while a sign change was observed near 90° in the center of mass. The unique results presented in this Letter will provide critical constraints to establish reaction mechanisms that can help to further develop the GPD and TDA frameworks.
