We report the first measurement of the transverse momentum dependence of double-spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive production of pions in deep-inelastic scattering off the longitudinally polarized proton. Data have been obtained using a polarized electron beam of 5.7 GeV with the CLAS detector at the Jefferson Lab (JLab). Modulations of single spin(More)
We report the exclusive photoproduction cross sections for the Σ 0 (1385), Λ(1405), and Λ(1520) in the reactions γ + p → K + + Y * using the CLAS detector for energies from near the respective production thresholds up to a center-of-mass energy W of 2.85 GeV. The differential cross sections are integrated to give the total exclusive cross sections for each(More)
We measured the ratios of electroproduction cross sections from a proton target for three exclusive meson-baryon final states: ΛK(+), pπ(0), and nπ(+), with the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab. Using a simple model of quark hadronization, we extract qq creation probabilities for the first time in exclusive two-body production, in which only a single qq pair(More)
Because of their long lifetimes, the ω and ϕ mesons are the ideal candidates for the study of possible modifications of the in-medium meson-nucleon interaction through their absorption inside the nucleus. During the E01-112 experiment at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, the mesons were photoproduced from 2H, C, Ti, Fe, and Pb targets.(More)
This work presents measurements of the spin density matrix elements for the reaction γp → pω. The data were collected using the CLAS detector in Hall B at Jefferson Lab, from two different datasets, g1c and g8b. The results from the g1c dataset cover the energy range 1720 MeV ≤ √ s ≤ 2470 MeV, and, due to a circularly polarized photon beam, allow access to(More)
