Abstract
The virtual photon absorption cross section differences [alpha(1/2) - alpha (3/2)] for the proton and neutron have been determined from measurements of polarised cross section asymmetries in deep inelastic scattering of 27.5 G eV longitudinally polarised positrons from polarised H-1 and He-3 internal gas targets. The data were collected in the region above the nucleon resona nces in the kinematic range v < 23.5 GeV and 0.8 GeV2 < Q(2) < 12 GeV2. For the proton the contribution to the generalised Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn integ ral was found to be substantial and must be included for an accurate determ ination of the full integral. Furthermore the data are consistent with a QC D next-to-leading order fit based on previous deep inelastic scattering dat a. Therefore higher twist effects do not appear significant.
