Abstract

The paper presents the results of measurement of three tensor analyzing power components for the incoherent π 0 -meson photoproduction on a deuteron in the photon energy range of 250 – 500 MeV, the proton energy range of 15 – 200 MeV, and the neutron energy range of 15 – 150 MeV. The incoherent π 0 -meson electroproduction on a deuteron was used as a source of quasireal photons for the incoherent π 0 -meson photoproduction. The experiment was performed using an internal tensor-polarized gas deuterium target of the VEPP-3 electron storage ring by the proton-neutron coincidence method. The results of measurement of the tensor analyzing power components are compared with the results of statistical modeling performed in the framework of a theoretical model.
