The excitation spectrum of the proton consists of resonances with substancial width which are often strongly overlapping and are therefore difficult to disentangle. To determine the exact contributions and identify these resonances, a partial wave analysis solution has to be found. For a complete experiment, which leads to an unambiguous solution, several single and double polarization observables are needed. With the Crystal Barrel/TAPS experiment at ELSA, the measurement of double polarization observables in different reactions is possible by using a circularly or linearly polarized photon beam on a transversely or longitudinally polarized butanol target.
