Prompt photon cross section measurement in p¯p collisions at s=1.8 TeV Academic Article uri icon


  • The first prompt photon measurement from the CDF experiment at the Fermilab pp̄ Collider is presented. Two independent methods are used to measure the cross section: one for high transverse momentum (PT) and one for lower PT. Comparisons to various theoretical calculations are shown. The cross section agrees qualitatively with QCD calculations but has a steeper slope at low PT. © 1993 The American Physical Society.
