Abstract: We investigate η photoproduction off the neutron target, i.e., γnηn, employing an effective Lagrangian method combining with a Regge approach. As a background, we consider nucleon exchange in the s-channel diagram and ρ- and ω-meson Regge trajectories in the t channel. The role of nucleon resonances given in the Review of Particle Data Group in the range of W15002100 MeV and the narrow nucleon resonance N(1685,1/2+) is extensively studied. The numerical results of the total and differential cross sections, double polarization observable E, helicity-dependent cross sections σ1/2, σ3/2, and the Legendre coefficients of the angular distributions for σ1/2, σ3/2 are found to be in qualitative agreement with the recent A2 experimental data. The predictions of the beam asymmetry are also given.
