New measurements of the helicity dependence of the total inclusive photoabsorption cross section and of the partial cross sections for several reaction channels on the proton and on the neutron were carried out at MAMI (Mainz) in the energy region 200 < Eγ < 1500 MeV. The experiments were performed at the tagged photon beam facility of the MAMI accelerator in Mainz, using circularly and longitudinally polarised photons on longitudinally polarised proton, deuteron and 3He targets.
These new doubly-polarised pion-photoproduction data sets give new input to the partial wave analyses and allow to constrain the multipole solution of the different analyses; they also allow to study the double-polarisation observables G and E. Furthermore, the results obtained give information on the well-known Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn sum rule.
