 2002

Ingår i: Physics Letters. Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and HighEnergy Physics.  Elsevier.  03702693. ; 539:12, s. 2539

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 The helicity structure of the diffractive electroproduction of rho mesons, e + p > e + rho + Y, is studied in a previously unexplored region of large fourmomentum transfer squared at the proton vertex, t: 0 < t' < 3 GeV2, where t' =  min. The data used are collected with the HI detector at HERA in the kinematic domain 2.5 < Q(2) < 60 GeV2, 40 < W < 120 GeV No t dependence of the r(00)(04) spin density matrix element is found. A significant t dependent helicity nonconservation from the virtual photon to the rho meson is observed for the spin density matrix element combinations r(00)(5) + 2r(11)(5) and r(00)(1) + 2r(11)(1). These t dependences are consistently described by a perturbative QCD model based on the exchange of two gluons.

Energy flow and rapidity gaps between jets in photoproduction at HERA
 2002

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 24:4, s. 517527

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 Dijet events in photonproton collisions in which there is a large pseudorapidity separation, Deltaeta > 2.5 between the two highest ET jets are studied with the H1 detector at HERA. The inclusive dijet cross sections are measured as functions of the longitudinal momentum fractions of the proton and photon which participate in the production of the jets, x(p)(jets) and x(gamma)(jets) respectively, Deltaeta, the pseudorapidity P separation between the two highest ET jets, and ET(gap), the total summed transverse energy between the jets. Rapidity gap events are defined as events in which ET(gap) is less than ET(cut), for ET(cut) varied between jets 0.5 and 2.0 GeV. The fraction of dijet events with a rapidity gap is measured differentially in Deltaeta, x(p)(jets) and x(gamma)(jets). An excess of events with rapidity gaps at low values of ET(cut) is observed above the expectation from standard photoproduction processes. This excess can be explained by the exchange of a strongly interacting colour singlet object between the jets.

Measurement of dijet electroproduction at small jet separation
 2002

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 24:1, s. 3341

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 Deepinelastic scattering data in the range 150 < Q(2) < 35000 GeV2 are used to investigate the minimum jet separation necessary to allow accurate description of the rate of dijet production using nexttoleading order perturbative QCD calculations. The required jet separation is found to be small, allowing about 1/3 of DIS data to be classified as dijet, as opposed to approximately 1/10 with more typical jet analyses. A number of precision measurements made using this dijet sample are well described by the calculations. The data are also described by the combination of leading order matrix elements and parton showers, as implemented in the QCD based Monte Carlo model RAPGAP.

Search for odderoninduced contributions to exclusive pi(0) photoproduction at HERA
 2002

Ingår i: Physics Letters. Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and HighEnergy Physics.  Elsevier.  03702693. ; 544:12, s. 3543

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 A search for contributions to the reaction ep > epi(0)N* from photonodderon fusion in the photoproduction regime at HERA is reported, at an average photonproton centreofmass energy = 215 GeV. The measurement proceeds via detection of the pi(0) decay photons, a leading neutron from the N* decay, and the scattered electron. No pi(0) signal is observed and an upper limit on the cross section for the photonodderon fusion process of sigma(gammap > pi(0)N*) < 49 nb at the 95% confidence level is derived, integrated over the experimentally accessible range of the squared fourmomentum transfer at the nucleon vertex 0.02 < < 0.3 GeV2. This excludes a recent prediction from a calculation based on a nonperturbative QCD model of a photonodderon fusion cross section above 200 nb. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.

Inelastic photoproduction of J/psi mesons at HERA
 2002

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 25:1, s. 2539

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 An analysis of inelastic photoproduction of J/psi mesons is presented using data collected at the ep collider HERA corresponding to an integrated luminosity of above 80 pb(1), Differential and double I < Pt/psi(2) < differential cross sections are measured in a wide kinematic region: 60 < Wgammap < 260 GeV, 1 p(t,psi)(2) < 60 GeV2 and 0.05 < z < 0.9. where z is the fraction of the energy of the exchanged photon transferred to the J/psi meson in the rest frame of the target proton. Cross sections at z less than or similar to 0.3 are presented for the first time. Theoretical calculations within the Colour Singlet Model at NLO for direct photon processes are shown to give a good description of the data in the medium z region (0.3 < z < 0.9) up to the highest p(t,psi)(2) values. A calculation using a k(t) factorisation approach in LO in the Colour Singlet Model is also able to describe these data. The data in the full z range are also compared to LO calculations within a nonrelativistic QCD framework including colour octet and colour singlet contributions for direct and resolved photons. It seems possible to reconcile data and theory with modest contributions from colour octet processes. The polarisation of the J/psi meson is measured as a function of z and p(t,psi) and is reasonably described by the theoretical predictions.

Measurement of D*(+/) meson production and F2(c) in deepinelastic scattering at HERA
 2002

Ingår i: Physics Letters. Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and HighEnergy Physics.  Elsevier.  03702693. ; 528:34, s. 199214

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 The inclusive production of D*+/(2010) mesons in deepinelastic scattering is studied with the HI detector at HERA. In the kinematic region 1 < Q(2) < 100 GeV2 and 0.05 < y < 0.7 an e(+) p cross section for inclusive D*+/ meson production of 8.50 +/ 0.42(stat.)(100)(+1.21)(syst.) nb is measured in the visible range p(tD*) > 1.5 GeV and eta(D*) < 1.5. Single and double differential inclusive D*+/ meson cross sections are compared to perturbative QCD calculations in two different evolution schemes, The charm contribution to the proton structure, Fc(2)(x, Q(2)), is determined by extrapolating the visible charm cross section to the full phase space. This contribution is found to rise from about 10% at Q(2) = 1.5 GeV2 to more than 25% at Q(2) = 60 GeV2 corresponding to x values ranging from 5 x 10(5) to 3 x 10(3). (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.

Measurement of dijet production at low Q(2) at HERA
 2004

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 37:2, s. 141159

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 Triple differential dijet cross sections in e(+/)p interactions are presented in the region of photon virtualities 2 < Q(2) < 80 GeV2, inelasticities 0.1 < y < 0.85, jet transverse energies E*(T1) > 7GeV, E*(T2) > 5 GeV, and pseudorapidities  2.5 < η(1)*, η(2)* < 0. The measurements are made in the gamma*p centreofmass frame, using an integrated luminosity of 57 pb(1). The data are compared with NLO QCD calculations and LO Monte Carlo programs with and without a resolved virtual photon contribution. NLO QCD calculations fail to describe the region of low Q(2) and low jet transverse energies, in contrast to a LO Monte Carlo generator which includes direct and resolved photon interactions with both transversely and longitudinally polarised photons. Initial and final state parton showers are tested as a mechanism for including higher order QCD effects in low ET jet production.

Inelastic leptoproduction of J/psi mesons at HERA
 2002

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 25:1, s. 4153

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 The leptoproduction of J/psi mesons is studied in inelastic reactions for four momentorri transfers 2 < Q(2) < 100GeV(2). The data were taken with the H1 detector at the electron proton collider HERA and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 77 pb(1). Single differential and double differential cross sections are measured with increased precision compared with previous analyses. New leading order calculations within the nonrelativistic QCD factorisation approach including colour octet and colour singlet contributions are compared with the data and are found to give a reasonable description of most distributions. An exception is the shape of the distribution in the J/psi fractional energy. z, which deviates significantly from that of the data. Comparisons with photoproduction are made and the polarisation of the produced J/psi meson is analysed.

Measurement and QCD analysis of neutral and charged current cross sections at HERA
 2003

Ingår i: European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields.  Springer.  14346044. ; 30:1, s. 132

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 The inclusive e(+)p single and double differential cross sections for neutral and charged current processes axe measured with the H1 detector at HERA. The data were taken in 1999 and 2000 at a centreofmass energy of roots = 319 GeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 65.2 pb(1). The cross sections are measured in the range of fourmomentum transfer squared Q(2) between 100 and 30 000 GeV2 and Bjorken x between 0.0013 and 0.65. The neutral current analysis for the new e(+)p data and the earlier ep data taken in 1998 and 1999 is extended to small energies of the scattered electron and therefore to higher values of inelasticity y, allowing a determination of the longitudinal structure function FL at high Q(2) (110  700 GeV2). A new measurement of the structure function x (F) over tilde (3) is obtained using the new e(+)p and previously published e p neutral current cross section data at high Q(2). These data together with H1 low Q(2) precision data are further used to perform new nexttoleading order QCD analyses in the framework of the Standard Model to extract flavour separated parton distributions in the proton.

Search for new physics in e +/ q contact interactions at HERA
 2003

Ingår i: Physics Letters. Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and HighEnergy Physics.  Elsevier.  03702693. ; 568:12, s. 3547

Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
 Deepinelastic e(+/) p scattering at high squared momentum transfer Q(2) up to 30 000 GeV2 is used to search for eq contact interactions associated to scales far beyond the HERA centre of mass energy. The neutral current cross section measurements dsigma / dQ(2), corresponding to integrated luminosities of 16.4 pb(1) of e() p data and 100.8 pb(1) of e(+) p data, are well described by the Standard Model and are analysed to set constraints on new phenomena. For conventional contact interactions lower limits are set on compositeness scales A ranging between 1.65.5 TeV. Couplings and masses of leptoquarks and squarks in Rparity violating supersymmetry are constrained to M / lambda > 0.31.4 TeV. A search for low scale quantum gravity effects in models with large extra dimensions provides limits on the effective Planck scale of MS > 0.8 TeV. A form factor analysis yields a bound on the radius of light quarks of Rq < 1.0 10(18) m. (C) 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.
