Abstract
We explore the possibility to measure the elastic and inelastic $\omega N$ cross section in $p{+}d{\to}d{+}\omega{+}p_{sp}$ and p+A reactions. Our studies indicate that the elastic scattering cross sections can be determined for $\omega$ momenta above 1 GeV/c in p+d reactions by gating on high proton spectator momenta whereas the $\omega N$absorption cross section down to low relative $\omega$ momenta is most effectively studied in p+A reactions at beam energies 2.0-2.7 GeV.
