Observation of the Production of Jets of Particles at High Transverse Momentum and Comparison with Inclusive Single Particle Reactions
Authors (1 total): J. Rohlf
Data are presented on production by 200-GeV/c hadrons incident on beryllium of both single particles and jets (groups of particles) with high pT (transverse momentum). The experiment was performed in a wide-aperture multiparticle spectrometer at Fermilab. The jet and single-particle cross sections have a similar shape from pT=3 to 5 GeV/c but the jet cross section is over two orders of magnitude larger. The distributions of charged-particle momenta show striking similarities to those observed in lepton-induced processes.
