Abstract

Charm D-meson production in 360 GeV pp interactions has been studied using the high-resolution hydrogen bubble chamber LEBC and the European Hybrid Spectrometer. D-mesons are produced with a differential cross section of the form d2σdx dpT2δ(1-x)n exp (-apT2), withn=1.8± 0.8 and a=1.1±0.03 GeV/c−2 for the Feynman x and Transverse momentum pT behaviour. The inclusive particle cross section for D and D̄;measured to be: σ(D/D̄) = (56−12 25μb (for all x). The ΛcD̄ cross section can be estimated to be ≈20μb. No strong correlation is observed between DD̄ pairs. The results are compared with results from a study of D-meaon production in 360 GeV/c π−p interactions also using LEBC-EHS.
