Center-of-mass angular distribution of prompt photons produced in pp¯ collisions at √s =1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Data taken with the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) during the 1988-1989 run of the Tevatron are used to measure the distribution of the center-of-mass (rest frame of the initial state partons) angle between isolated prompt photons and the beam direction. The shape of the angular distribution for photon-jet events is found to be significantly different from that observed in dijet data. The QCD predictions show qualitative agreement with the observed prompt photon angular distribution. © 1993 The American Physical Society.
