Photoproduction of pi eta-pairs from nucleons has been investigated from threshold up to incident photon energies of approximate to 1.4GeV. The quasi-free reactions gamma p -> p pi(0)eta, gamma n -> n pi(0)eta, gamma p -> n pi(+)eta and gamma n -> p pi(-)eta were for the first time measured from nucleons bound in the deuteron. The corresponding reactions from a free-proton target were also studied to investigate final-state interaction effects (for neutral pions the free-proton results could be compared to previous measurements; the gamma p -> n pi(+)eta reaction was measured for the first time). For the pi(0)eta final state coherent production via the gamma d -> d pi(0)eta reaction was also investigated. The experiments were performed at the tagged photon beam of the Mainz MAMI accelerator using an almost 4 pi coverage electromagnetic calorimeter composed of the Ball and TAPS detectors. The total cross sections for the four different final states obey the relation sigma(p pi(0)eta) approximate to sigma(n pi(0)eta) approximate to 2 sigma(n pi(+)eta) as expected for a dominant contribution from a Delta* -> eta Delta(1232) -> pi eta Nreaction chain, which is also supported by the shapes of the invariant-mass distributions of nucleon-meson and pi-eta pairs. The experimental results are compared to the predictions from an isobar reaction model. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
