Abstract

We study inclusive ω photoproduction in nuclei and propose a measurement of the nuclear transparency ratio as a means to learn about the in-medium properties of the ω meson. To this end we are using the semi-classical coupled-channel BUU transport approach that allows for a consistent treatment of all nuclear effects. The conditions of our calculations are chosen such as to match the setup of existing experimental facilities at ELSA or MAMI C. We show that the observables (total production cross section and transparency) indeed are sensitive to the ωN interaction in the nuclear medium.
