"Results from the GRAAL experiment"
The GRAAL experiment was located at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France). It consisted of a Compton backscattered polarized photon beam, of 1.5 GeV maximum energy, and a large solid angle detector (LAGRANgE), optimized for neutral particle detection. Over more than ten years of activity has provided photon beam asymmetry measurements of pseudo-scalar meson photo-production reactions on both proton and neutron targets, providing strong constraints to models that allow for the extraction of nucleon resonances properties from experimental results. Highlights from published data are summarized and the latest results on omega meson photo-production are presented
