"The GDH Experiment at MAMI"
ABSTRACT:
The GDH sum rule connects ground state properties of the nucleon with helicity-dependent cross sections. To investigate these cross sections on the deuteron, experiments have been carried out by the A2-Collaboration at the Mainz Microtron (Germany) in 1998 and in 2003, using circularly polarized photons on a polarized d-butanol target. The latest analysis results and the status of the GDH experiment with the Crystal Ball detector are reported.
