May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 3 Nuclear Compton Scattering Compton scattering refers to scattering a photon off of a bound electron (atomic) or off of a nucleon (nuclear). Below about 20 MeV, this process is described by the Hamiltonian: * Above 20 MeV, the photon begins to probe the nucleon structure. To second order, an effective Hamiltonian can be written: Here, E1 represents the electric, and M1 the magnetic, dipole (scalar) polarizabilities. * *B.

May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 4 Spin Polarizabilities These scalar polarizabilities have been measured for the proton through real Compton scattering experiments. * Advancing to third order, four new terms arise in the eff. Hamiltonian: * These terms are the spin (vector) polarizabilities. The subscript notation denotes their relation to a multipole expansion. *R.P.

Measurements The GDH experiments at Mainz and ELSA used the Gell-Mann, Goldberger, and Thirring sum rule to evaluate the forward S.P.: The Backward S.P. was determined from dispersive analysis of backward angle Compton scattering: *B.

May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 7 Dispersion Analysis Program The theoretical cross sections used here are produced in a fixed-t dispersion analysis code, provided to us by Barbara Pasquini. For further information, see B. Pasquini, D. Drechsel, M. Vanderhaeghen, Phys. Rev. C 76 015203 (2007). The program was run for three different experimental runs: Transversely polarized target with a circularly polarized beam Longitudinally polarized target with a circularly polarized beam Unpolarized target with a linearly polarized beam The former two return cross sections for unpolarized, left helicity, and right helicity beams. The latter returns the beam asymmetry.

May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 19 Solid Angle The solid angle for the chosen polar angle bin is given by: In order to tag the event (as likely described before), the reaction requires a proton recoil energy of at least 40 MeV, limiting our minimum forward angle of acceptance to: This, however, neglects the different events that different parts of the detector observe for a given run configuration, which will be corrected for in the next section.
May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 20 Real/Effective Polarization The cross sections produced in the code assume 100 % beam and target polarization (if applicable). The cross sections with a real polarization: Transversely LongitudinallyUnpolarized Where red is target polarization, and gray is beam polarization direction For 2x and 3
May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 21 Real/Effective Polarization The effective polarizations can then be written as: With the expected experimental polarizations, the resulting effective polarizations are:
May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 22 Minimization Partials The energy bin averaged counts can be written in a linear expansion: Where k max, k min, and k 0 are the energy bin max, min, and centroid respectively, i is the S.P. perturbation, and F is the flux factor: The C i term represents the partials of the counts with respect to the S.P.s
May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 23 Construction The fitting program uses a minimization routine on 2, defined as: The algorithm is actually the summation of various 2 components, including the selected constraints for the particular run. Is it reasonable, however, to assume that the theoretical component can be approximated by a linear expansion? Run a 2 check.

May 2, 2015P. Martel - Bosen 2009 35 Conclusions By simply plotting the changes in the asymmetries, the sensitivities to the polarizabilities is seen to be appreciable. Checks of the fitting method being used demonstrates reasonable behavior (near linearity and containment) Fitting results are very promising: Running the full program with 2x, 2z, and 3 appears to be sufficient to extract the S.P.s without invoking the 0 or constraints. This would provide the first set of experimental values for these important quantities!
