Due to the high sensitivity of the NN->NN gamma reaction to the nucleon-nucleon potential, Bremsstrahlung radiation is used as a tool to investigate details of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. Such investigations can be performed at the cooler synchrotron COSY in the Research Centre Jülich, by dint of the COSY-11 detection system.
The results of the identification of Bremsstrahlung radiation emitted via the dp->dp gamma reaction in data taken with a proton target and a deuteron beam are presented and discussed.
