The η′π is an important decay channel for the potentially exotic hybrid meson π1(1600) that has been detected in the COMPASS, VES and E852 experiments. These previous experiments used a charged pion beam as a probe. In contrast, the GlueX experiment is designed to search for the exotic hybrid mesons using a linearly polarized photon beam. This thesis project analyzes the η′π0 system produced in GlueX by the reaction γp → η′π0p. After optimizing the event selection to minimize background contributions, a mass independent partial wave analysis is performed in search of an exotic signature. Within the currently available statistical precision, no signal was found.
