The double π0 photoproduction off the proton has been measured in the beam energy range of 0.65 1.5GeV. The total and differential cross sections and the Σ beam asymmetry were extracted. The total cross section measured for the first time in the third resonance region of the nucleon shows a prominent peak. The interpretation of these results by two independent theoretical models infers mostly the selective excitation of P11– and D13-nucleon resonances.

The American Physical Society was founded on May 20th, 1899, when 36 physicists gathered at Columbia University with that aim. They proclaimed the mission of the new Society to be “to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics”. This has since been the goal of the APS through scientific meetings and journal publication, as well as other activities. In 1913, the APS took over the operation of the Physical Review, which had been founded in 1893 at Cornell, and journal publication became its second major activity.
Physical Review was followed by Reviews of Modern Physics in 1929, and by Physical Review Letters in 1958 (when the then Editor, Sam Goudsmit, decided to collect the Letters to the Editor of Physical Review into a new standalone journal). Physical Review Letters (PRL) is the world’s premier physics letter journal; it publishes short, high quality reports of significant and notable results in the full arc of fundamental and interdisciplinary physics research. Over the years, has subdivided into five separate sections as the fields of physics have proliferated and the number of submissions grew.
