Measurement of the total photon proton cross section and its decomposition at 200 GeV centre of mass energy

Academic Article


  • We present a new measurement of the total photoproduction cross section performed with the H1 detector at HERA. For an average centre of mass energy of 200 GeV a value of σ tot λp =165±2±11 μb has been obtained. A detailed analysis of the data in adequate kinematic regions enabled a decomposition of the total cross section in its elastic, single diffractive dissociation and remaining non-diffractive parts, based on safe assumptions on the double diffractive dissociation contribution. © 1996 Springer-Verlag.
