Abstract

We have measured the polarization of the recoil proton in the reactions γp→π0p and γp→γp for incident photon energies between 3 and 7 GeV, and t values from -0.2 to -0.65 GeV2. The polarization in neutral-pion production varies from 0 to -1 over this range. Contrary to expectation, it does not agree completely with the polarized-target asymmetry.
