Abstract : The paper describes an experiment, performed at the Stanford Mark III electron linear accelerator, which measured the differential cross section for the asymmetric photoproduction of muon pairs from a hydrogen target, gamma-ray + p to negative-muon + positive-muon + p. The negative-muon was detected under conditions where the positive-muon and proton were non-relativistic in the laboratory. The experiment was performed as a test of quantum electrodynamics.
