We propose a model based on Reggae theory to describe photoproduction of light vector mesons. We fit the SLAC data and make predictions for the energy and momentum-transfer dependence of the spin-density matrix elements in photoproduction of omega, rho degrees and phi mesons at E-gamma similar to 8.5 GeV, which are soon to be measured at Jefferson Lab.

Global analysis of charge exchange meson production at high energies
Many experiments that are conducted to study the hadron spectrum rely on peripheral resonance production. Hereby, the rapidity gap allows the process to be viewed as an independent fragmentation of
Double polarization observables in pentaquark photoproduction
We investigate the properties of the hidden charm pentaquark-like resonances first observed by LHCb in 2015, by measuring the polarization transfer KLL between the incident photon and the outgoing
High Statistics Analysis of All-Neutral Decays of Vector Mesons with the Radphi Experiment
The differential cross section and spin density matrix elements for ω(782) meson photoproduction in the reaction Be(γp, pω)Li have been measured in the energy range 4.4 5.4 GeV using the Radphi
Constituent quark axial current couplings to light vector mesons in the vacuum and with a weak magnetic field
Unusual constituent quark axial current couplings to light vector mesons, ρ and ω, are derived in the vacuum and under weak magnetic field by considering a quark-antiquark interaction mediated by a
Moments of angular distribution and beam asymmetries in ηπ0 photoproduction at GlueX
In the search for exotic mesons, the GlueX collaboration will soon extract moments of the $\eta\pi^0$ angular distribution. In the perspective of these results, we generalize the formalism of moment
Tomography of light mesons in the light-cone quark model
We investigate the tomographical structure of pion and kaon in light cone quark model (LCQM). In particular, we study the parton distribution amplitude (PDA) of pion and kaon. We obtain the parton
XYZ spectroscopy at electron-hadron facilities: Exclusive processes
The next generation of electron-hadron facilities has the potential for significantly improving our understanding of exotic hadrons. The XYZ states have not been seen in photon-induced reactions so
Moments of angular distribution in two mesons photoproduction
The formalism devoted to the production of two pseudoscalar mesons with a linearly polarized photon beam has been detailed and illustrated in Phys. Rev. D100 (2019) 054017. This document reports the


Regge-pole description of the photoproduction of vector meson
Abstract We use a Regge-pole model to describe the spin density matrices of the vector mesons as well as the differential and total cross sections in the photoproduction processes: γ + p → V + p(V =
Photoproduction of ϕ mesons by linearly polarized photons of energy 20–40 GeV and further evidence for a photoproduced high-massKK enhancement
A study of ϕ-meson photoproduction by partially polarized photons of energy 20–40 GeV is reported. The production mechanism is found to conserves-channel helicity and to proceed via natural-parity
Photoproduction of φ(1020) mesons on theproton at large momentum transfer
The differential cross section, d sigma/dt, for rho(0) meson photoproduction on the proton above the resonance region was measured up to a momentum transfer -t = 5 GeV2 using the CLAS detector at the

Exclusive photo- and electroproduction of vector mesons at large momentum transfer
Two-gluon-exchange mechanisms are expected to govern exclusive photo- and electro-production of vector mesons at large momentum transfer. While quark-interchange mechanisms may compete, at least at

Abstract We analyse the recent bubble-chamber data from the Aachen-Berlin-Bonn-Hamburg-Heidelberg-Munchen Collaboration on the process γ p→p ω , assuming that ω photoproduction goes both via
Photoproduction of Vector Mesons at Large Transfer
At forward angles, the cross-sections of photoproduction of vector mesons ($\rho$, $\omega$, and $\phi$) are well accounted for by the exchange of the Pomeron at high energies, while contributions of

Abstract The pseudoscalar and pseudovector ηN coupling constants are calculated from an effective vertex associated with the a0(980)πN triangle diagram. The predicted values are in agreement with the

The reaction gamma N -> eta N is studied in the high-energy regime (with photon lab energies E gamma(lab) > 4 GeV) using information from the resonance region through the use of finite-energy sum
