Study of the GDH sum rule of 3 He at HIGS

Conference Paper

In this talk, we discuss an experiment that has been conducted recently at the High Intensity Gamma Source (HIGS) facility at the Duke Free Electron Laser Laboratory (DFELL) on three-body photodisintegration of circularly polarized photons from a longtudinally polarized 3He target at an incident photon energy of 11.4 MeV. The target was based on the technique of spin-exchange optical pumping with hybrid rubidium and potassium vapors. Neutrons from the three-body photodisintegration process were detected in the experiment using liquid scintillator neutron detectors. We also discuss future prospects at HIGS with the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn (GDH) integral measurement of 3He.
