Exclusive pi-zero production and Compton scattering at GlueX

The GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab’s Hall D aims to explore the gluonic degrees of freedom within hadrons through high-energy meson photoproduction.  Using a 9 GeV linearly-polarized photon beam, first measurements of the sigma beam asymmetry for pseudoscalar production have already provided insight into the meson production mechanisms at these energies. This endeavor will be…
