Preface

  • New data on polarization (asymmetry) in +p

  • Backward angles, 1.94 & 2.07 GeV/c

  • The latest experiment in the series of the polarization parameter measurements by ITEP-PNPI collaboration in the last decade

    (A at 1.00, 1.43 and 1.62 GeV/c, P at 1.43, 1.78 and 2.07 GeV/c)

  • Available momentum range (0.8-2.1) GeV/c

  •  65 % of light quark resonances in 3 clusters

  • MAIN GOAL:

  • Data for the UNAMBIGUOUS RECONSTRUCTION of the elastic pscattering amplitudes by PWA

  • PHYSICS INTEREST to the LIGHT BARYON SPECTROSCOPY is enhanced by the observation of :

    • resonance clusters with masses 1.7 and 1.9 GeV/c2

    • resonances with negative parity in 1.9 GeV/c2 peak

    • parity doublets in these clusters

    • missing resonances near 2 GeV/c2

      which do not fit well the constituent quark model

Background

  • Light baryon resonances in the latest PDG are based mainlyon PWA’s KH80 and CMB80, both performed more than two decades ago.

  • More recent analyses by VPI/GWU group did not revealed 4 of 13 resonances in clusters

  • Latest data on polarization in p and spin rotation parameters do not confirm KH80 and CMB80 in the backward scattering region

Experiment

PRESENT MEASUREMENTS:

+p, cm=(148-176)o, P=1.94 and 2.07 GeV/c

  • No or very poor experimental information up to now

  • Main difficulty: extremely small cross section in the explored domain

    • Significant background

      • Its careful subtraction and systematic error estimate

Experimental Setup

MAIN ELEMENTS:

  • Vertically polarized proton target PT

  • 4 sets of wire chambers for tracking

  • Trigger scintillation counters

  • Aerogel Cherenkov counter for +tagging

Beam Arm

Proton Arm

Aerogel Counter

Pion Arm I

Pion Arm II

TARGET:

  • Cylinder 30mm, h=30mm, propanediole C3H8O2, free proton density 10 %

  • Magnetic field 2.5 T

  • 3He evaporation type cryostat at 0.5 K

  • Dynamic nuclear orientation

  • Polarization (70-80) %, measurement accuracy 2 %

  • Sign reverse once per day

Data Processing 1

MAIN DIFFICULTY:

  • Very low cross section

    ELASTIC EVENT SELECTION:

  • Coplanarity and kinematic correlation

     ,  – deviations from the elastic kinematics

  • Additional background suppression by momentum analysis  factor 2 in S/B ratio

    NORMALIZATION:

  • Using “unpolarized” event counts

1.94 GeV/c

2.07 GeV/c

Measurement region

Data Processing 2

BACKGROUND SUBTRACTION:

  • 2-dim cubic polynomial fit for the background

    SYSTEMATIC ERROR ESTIMATES:

  • Various cuts on the locus region

Results: Asymmetry P at 1.94 GeV/c in +p

  • Best correspondence to KH80 and the oldest VPI/GWU analysis

  • Data suggests even deeper minimum at 165o

  • Significant deviation from CMB80 and latest VPI/GWU solution

Results: Asymmetry P at 2.07 GeV/c in +p

  • Best resemblance to CMB80

  • Angular dependence looks contradictory to all other analyses

  • Obvious contradiction to the latest VPI/GWU solution

  • No disagreement with existing data

Conclusion

  • GWU group significantly improved their analysis in the recent years

  • New polarization parameter data require NEW GLOBAL TYPE PWA

  • We extremely welcome the recent efforts of the Helsinki group on resurrection of KH80 analysis
