Abstract

The ratio of the total exclusive production cross sections for η' and η mesons has been measured in the pp reaction at Pbeam = 3.67 GeV/c. The observed η'/η ratio is (0.83 ± 0.11-0.18/+0.23) x 10-2 from which the exclusive η' meson production cross section is determined to be (1.12 ± 0.15-0.31/+0.42) μb. Differential cross section distributions have been measured. Their shape is consistent with isotropic η' meson production. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
