Photonuclear physics with low intensity photon beams

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 234)


Experiments in photonuclear physics are discussed that require a low intensity photon beam and large acceptance detectors. This combination is especially suitable for the investigation of photoprocesses on nucleons and light nuclei. A specific experimental setup for the electron stretcher ring ELSA is presented.
