Coherent π0η photoproduction on s-shell nuclei    [PDF]

M. Egorov, A. Fix
Coherent photoproduction of \pi 0\eta\ on the deuteron, He3 and He4 nuclei is considered in the energy region from threshold to the lab photon energy 1.2 GeV. The transition amplitude is derived using impulse approximation. Effects of pion absorption are included by means of the Fernbach-Serber-Taylor model. Interaction of the produced \eta-mesons with the recoiled nucleus is taken into account for the reactions on d and He3. The corresponding \eta d and \eta He3 scattering amplitudes are obtained as solutions of the few-body equations for \eta NN and \eta-3N systems. Impact of this interaction on the differential cross section in the region of small relative \eta-nuclear momenta is discussed.
