The ratio of the π- and π+ photoproduction cross sections from deuterium has been measured for 12 combinations of pion angle and momentum. In terms of the kinematics for γ+p→π++n, the experiment covers photon energies from 165 to 200 MeV and center-of-mass angles from 40 to 145°. The results are corrected to obtain the π-/π+ ratio for free nucleons, and, from comparison with theory, the γ-π-ρ coupling constant Λ is estimated to be +0.1±0.3.
