The photoproduction of eta`-mesons off different nuclei has been measured with the CBELSA/TAPS detector system for incident photon energies between 1500-2200 MeV. The transparency ratio has been deduced and compared to theoretical calculations describing the propagation of eta`-mesons in nuclei. The comparison indicates a width of the eta`-meson of the order of Gamma = 15-25 MeV at rho = rho(0) for an average momentum p(eta`) = 1050 MeV/c, at which the eta`-meson is produced in the nuclear rest frame. The inelastic eta`N cross section is estimated to be 3-10 mb. Parameterizing the photoproduction cross section of eta`-mesons by sigma(A) = sigma(0)A(alpha), a value of alpha = 0.84 +/- 0.03 has been deduced. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
