(English) Evidence for a narrow N* (1685) resonance in quasifree Compton scattering on the neutron

The study of quasifree Compton scattering on the neutron in the energy range of Eγ=0.75–1.5 GeV is presented. The data reveal a narrow peak at W~1.685 GeV.This result, being considered in conjunction with the recent evidence for a narrow structure at W~1.68 GeV in η photoproduction on the neutron, suggests the existence of a nucleon resonance with unusual properties: a mass M~1.685GeV, a narrow width Γ⩽30 MeV, and the much stronger photoexcitation on the neutron than on the proton.
