Measurement of J/psi production in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=2.76 TeV


LHCb Collaboration; et al; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkamp, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A (2013). Measurement of J/psi production in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=2.76 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2013:41.

Abstract

The production of J/ψ mesons is studied with the LHCb detector using data from pp collisions at s√=2.76 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 71 nb−1. The differential cross-section for inclusive J/ψ production is measured as a function of its transverse momentum p T. The cross-section in the fiducial region 0 < p T  < 12 GeV/c and rapidity 2.0 < y < 4.5 is measured to be 5.6 ± 0.1 (stat) ± 0.4 (syst) μb, with the assumption of unpolarised J/ψ production. The fraction of J/ψ production from b-hadron decays is measured to be (7.1 ± 0.6 (stat) ± 0.7 (syst))%.
