Abstract

The transverse target spin azimuthal asymmetry View the MathML source in hard exclusive production of ρ0 mesons was measured at COMPASS by scattering 160 GeV/c muons off transversely polarised protons and deuterons. The measured asymmetry is sensitive to the nucleon helicity-flip generalised parton distributions Eq, which are related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks in the nucleon. The Q2, xBj and View the MathML source dependence of View the MathML source is presented in a wide kinematic range: View the MathML source, 0.003
