Photon, diphoton and photon+jet production measured with the ATLAS detector
Presented by Prof. Oleg FEDIN on 3 Jun 2013 from 5:15 PM to 5:40 PM
Session: Afternoon Session - VII
Isolated prompt photons provide a direct probe of short-distance physics, complementary to that provided by measurements of jets or vector-bosons. The data are sensitive to the gluon density of the proton. The inclusive prompt photon cross sections have been measured over a wide range of transverse momenta; the diphoton cross section has also been measured as a function of diphoton mass, total transverse momentum and azimuthal separation; the cross section for photons produced in association with jets is also measured. The results are compared to the predictions of next-to-leading-order QCD.
