Precision Measurement of the Prompt Photon Cross Section in pp¯ Collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A prompt photon cross section measurement from the Collider Detector at Fermilab experiment is presented. Detector and trigger upgrades, as well as 6 times the integrated luminosity compared with our previous publication, have contributed to a much more precise measurement and extended PT range. As before, QCD calculations agree qualitatively with the measured cross section, but the data has a steeper slope than the calculations. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
