Low-energy photoproduction of \(\omega\)-mesons

Abstract.

The photoproduction of the vector meson \(\omega\) has been studied between threshold and W = 2.4 GeV with the SAPHIR detector at the Bonn electron stretcher ring ELSA. Besides, the total cross-sections angular distributions in the CMS and decay angular distributions in the helicity and Gottfried-Jackson systems have been measured.
