Measurement of the proton structure function F2 (x, Q2) in the low-x region at HERA

Academic Article


  • A measurement of the proton structure function F2 (x, Q2) is presented with about 1000 neutral current deep inelastic scattering events for Bjorken x in the range x {reversed tilde equals} 10-2 - 10-4 and Q2 > 5 GeV2. The measurement is based on an integrated luminosity of 22.5 nb-1 recorded by the H1 detector in the first year of HERA operation. The structure function F2 (x, Q2) shows a significant rise with decreasing x. © 1993.
