Measurement of the Inclusive Jet Cross Section in p¯p Collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Inclusive jet production at s=1.8 TeV has been measured in the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron p p Collider. Jets with transverse energies (Et) up to 250 GeV have been observed. The Et dependence of the inclusive jet cross section is consistent with leading-order quantum-chromodynamic calculations, and comparison with lower-energy data shows deviations from scaling consistent with QCD. A lower limit of 700 GeV (95% confidence level) is placed on the quark compositeness scale parameter c associated with an effective contact interaction. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
