We report measurements of the photon beam asymmetry Σ for the reactions γp→pπ 0 and γp→pη from the GlueX experiment using a 9 GeV linearly polarized, tagged photon beam incident on a liquid hydrogen target in Jefferson Lab's Hall D. The asymmetries, measured as a function of the proton momentum transfer, possess greater precision than previous π 0 measurements and are the first η measurements in this energy regime. The results are compared with theoretical predictions based on t -channel…
