Abstract

The GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab is a fixed target photoproduction experiment located in the newly-constructed Hall D. It is designed to study the spectroscopy of a variety of hadrons, with special emphasis on hybrid mesons. The experiment uses a 12 GeV electron beam incident on a diamond radiator to produce a linearly-polarized tagged bremsstrahlung photon beam of energies up to 12 GeV, peaking at 9 GeV. This photon beam is incident on a liquid hydrogen target surrounded by a spectrometer that combines charged particle tracking, electromagnetic calorimetry, and time-of-flight measurements. Initial commissioning data were taken at lower beam energies in the Fall of 2014 and Spring of 2015, with a final commissioning run at full energy scheduled in the Spring of 2016. Results for detector performance and preliminary results for the reconstruction of several exclusive final states are presented.
