Measurement of the Υ(1S) production cross-section in pp collisions at s=7 TeV in ATLAS

Abstract:

A measurement of the cross-section for Υ(1S)→μ+μ- production in proton-proton collisions at centre of mass energy of 7 TeV is presented. The cross-section is measured as a function of the Υ(1S) transverse momentum in two bins of rapidity, |yΥ(1S)|<1.2 and 1.2<|yΥ(1S)|<2.4. The measurement requires that both muons have transverse momentum pTμ>4 GeV and pseudorapidity |ημ|<2.5 in order to reduce theoretical uncertainties on the acceptance, which depend on the poorly known polaris...
